A highlight of my dream trip to Italy!
Jul 2019 • Couples
I cannot recommend this tour enough! We booked through Avventure Bellissime, and everything went off without a hitch.
Our driver and guide, Giacomo, was charming, pleasant and very knowledgeable about everything on the tour. He picked us up promptly at the assigned spot in Florence and off we went. He explained a lot about Florence on our way out of town and answered our numerous questions about the area on our drive.
Montepulciano was gorgeous and fun to explore. Our first stop was the Contucci winery, where we encountered a real character named Adamo, who has worked there for about 60 years! Then we met Ilaria, who conducted our wine tasting with aplomb. We ended up buying six bottles of the fabulous wine! I highly recommend this winery. Afterward, as we were walking into town, we met another elderly local character, who invited us in to see his copper workshop (Mazzetti). What a treat!
Our next stop was Pienza, where we found beautiful views and loads of history.
Lastly, Montalcino, my favorite stop. We were seated at a table on the lawn under a huge tree and served a simple and fantastic lunch with various wines included. Our hostess, Angelica, was terrific. The food was outstanding, and the view was incredible. It was the most memorable experience of our trip to Italy!
I highly, highly recommend this tour. If you are lucky, you will have Giacomo as a guide!

Small-group turned into a great private tour
Mar 2019 • Couples
A couple of weeks ago, we were scheduled to take this tour in a small group. A couple weeks before the trip, we were notified that not enough people had signed up and were offered the options to cancel, book another one of their trips that day, or pay an additional amount to make it a private tour. We chose the third option. It was expensive, but we had a great day.
Our tour guide, Jonathan, was very knowledgeable about the area and provided terrific background history. He also let me have a bit of time to wander the shops, which was fantastic. We had delicious wine and a light lunch and saw some charming villages.
The itinerary of the trip is perfect and we would book one of their tours again next time we visit Florence.

Dear Cheryl Thank you so much for your positive feedback about your private tour with Gionata - he is one of our most experienced driver-guides so we had no doubt you would have a great time on the trip with him. At times our tours might not reach the minimum required but we always try to check the situation and wherever possible we contact our travelers in advance offering alternative options. We are very happy you are satisfied with the whole experience and we hope to welcome you on our tours again in the future! Kind regards, Aleksandra Sales Dept
