A comprehensive experience in one of the most fascinating areas of Tuscany, known all over the world for its wine and its charming countryside, where woods alternate with vineyards and olive groves, in a landscape dotted with Romanesque parish churches, farmhouses, villas and castles of rare beauty. First stop in the Florentine Chianti Classico, in a small cozy Winery. Here, guided by the owner, you will discover the secrets of winemaking and enjoy a delicious tasting of the best wines produced, accompanied by local products. The tour includes later the medieval village of Greve, where you will have free time to admire the famous main square of the ancient "market" with its characteristic arcades and the local artisan shops. Through "Via Chiantigiana", you will then reach a family-run Winery, which stands out for the excellent quality of its wines and after the guided tour of the cellars and the lovely aromatic garden, a delicious tasting of four different wines and local products will be waiting for you. The last stop of the Tour is Castellina, a fortified hilltop village of Etruscan origin, among the most lively and picturesque of Chianti, characterized by an imposing fortress.

If I could spend everyday doing the Wine Tour I would without a doubt. This was the highlight of my Italian trip and if I could spend just a week alone in the Chianti region I could die happy. Each winery was beautiful with amazing products and as an added bonus we spent about an hour in a lovely nearby small town. The transportation was wonderful and our tour guide was full of helpful information. 10/10 would fly across the country this minute to do this tour again.

If you like wine you must take this tour. Lots of information on different wines and how they are made. The tasting at two different wine makers were infromational and some of the best wine I have tasted. Our guide was wonderful.

Loved the tour of the two wineries and the two villages. I do think that visiting just 1 village would be enough, giving a little more time to explore and/or eat. The village visits were very rushed is the only downfall I had. Our guide Helena was awesome!

Our hosts, both on the bus and at the wineries were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and engaged. We learned a great deal about the wines, olive oils and vinegars that are produced in the Chianti region. The Tuscany countryside was incredibly beautiful.

Beautiful countryside, great wine, oils and vinegars. Our tour guide was well versed in relaying interesting information about this part of Italy and the areas we visited. My only regret is that it was only one day!

In addition to the 2 wineries, you get to visit a couple of towns in the Chianti/Siena areas, which were quite nice. The 2 wineries were awesome to see and the wine was tasty! We were able to order some bottles and ship some home to the United States. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Excellent guides on this tour. Lisa (on the bus) kept us informed and spoke great English . At both wineries the staff were informative, funny and easy to understand. Loved the wines, balsamic vinegars, olive oils at each winery. Great selections of cheese , bread and salami to have during the tastings. Met wonderful and fun people on this tour. Well done and highly recommended.

Our guide Barbara and our bus driver were both great! We saw some beautiful countryside, a few small villages, and the 2 wineries were excellent. The first was a small family owned winery that was very intimate. The 2nd was larger so we had 2 different but excellent experiences. Both had just small portions of snacks but we had time to get a sandwich and more wine at one of the villages, so it perfect.

This was a very enjoyable tour. We learned a lot about Chianti wine and had a lot shipped home to us. Our guide was a big help and took the time to answer everyone’s questions.

The guide was so funny and very knowledgeable, would do a full day tour to experience more of the wine making process, but it was wonderful

We took this tour just for fun thinking it would be simple trip, but... It was great to visit two wineries and few little traditional Italian cities! It was the best tour and we are happy, that we got it! Thank you!

This is a must. A full afternoon into the evening. Add the supper option. We did and it’s well worth it!!! Less did a superb job as our guide. Small vineyards were everything you’d expect and more!!!

This was a great tour. We went to 2 wineries and stopped in 2 small towns during the trip. I did not feel rushed at all as you sometimes do on tours. We had ample time at both wineries. Our guide, I can't remember her name but she was from Japan, was really great. She was funny and informative. I loved how she really put her heart into it. I would definitely recommend this tour. I also love that it takes place in mid afternoon into the evening.

This tour was amazing. Great value, service, transportation and overall experience. Picks you up in a central spot, transports you to two amazing wineries and a village in between. Our tour guide, Mike, also pointed out lots of sights and Florence history on the way in and out of town. All the winery guides were so passionate and the wines and accompaniments were outstanding. Highly, highly recommended. Also, each winery had a friendly cat :)

No only did we have excellent presentations at two wineries, we got to see the beautiful Tuscan countryside along with commentary from our guide. A great experience

Great tour to learn about the wines of the region, even if you are already familiar with Italian wine. Our tour guide was incredibly personable and entertaining. Plenty of time to taste wine, take photos, and enjoy the villages. This is definitely not a small group tour, a full large bus, but that did not affect the quality of the wine tasting experience. I highly recommend this tour.

This was an amazing trip. It far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Keiko she did an amazing job. We decided on this tour to add the dinner stop option. Do it, you will not regret it. Eating at an one star Michelin rated over 10 years in a row for this ratingrestaurant Antica Trattoria La Toppa was amazing an the setting on a hill top tiny village was beautiful. When booking this tour take the option for dinner and pre order the T-bone steak as that option I think it is only available in advance. This was a amazing day and would do it all over again. The wine tasting experiences were great and informative, driving in the hills were beautiful.

For the price of this tour, it is totally worth it. We were able to see two towns in the Chianti region and visited two wineries as well. The wine tasting was great experience and we learned a lot from the somellier. The wines were good and pretty affordable compared to the Napa Valley wines. It was amazing to be able to see Tuscany and the vineyards. Just a truly great experience. It was all worth it.
