Great tour, views and wine!
First off, Lavi was the best tour guide that we could have asked for. Having done similar tours, Lavi gave us insight on the region which was quite appreciated. The bus/van was well air conditioned and able to enjoy the views throughout the day.

The vineyards were amazing and we would have loved to have had slightly more time to enjoy a glass at each. An enjoyable tour and Lavi could not have made the tour any better. We would recommend this to anyone who enjoys beautiful scenery, nice food, great wine, and a wealth of information. Thank you!

Martina the guide was lovely and the tour was highly educational as well as boozy. I learned a lot about the local wine region and enjoyed all of the extremely dry, incredible wine. Would do this tour again if I came back with friends or family.

Amazing Tour through Chianti Classico
This was an amazing tour through the Chianti Classico region. We stopped at three wineries, tasting local cuisine and wines, as well as the beautiful city center of Greve. Our guide, Lavi, was amazing and We wish her luck on her continued quest towards becoming a certified Sommelier!

Beautiful day in Tuscany
This was a really lovely day in the Chianti region of Tuscany. Great views, great wine, great food. Martina was so knowledgeable, funny and sweet. She was the best guide for the trip and, as a master sommelier, taught us a lot about wine.

Top notch
Sep 2021 • Couples
This tour is legit and 100% worth it. Don’t second guess it. Our guide, Laviana (Lavi) is a gem, is almost a master sommelier, and recommended other local bottles that were divine. She was kind, funny, and made for a memorable experience. You get to try a great selection of top Italian wines and the lunch and the views are worth the price of the trip alone. Cannot recommend this tour enough - go - Ciao!!

A perfect day in Tuscany
Aug 2021 • Couples
A special thanks to our guide, Lavinia, who knows the details of the people, the history, the country and of course the wine of the region. Everything was well organised, happened on time, and the highlight was lunch in an out-of-the-way winery/restaurant in the Tuscany hills.

Great wine and a great time
Aug 2021
Martina was an excellent guide for our day teaching us about wine and olive oil. Fabio was a great driver. It was more like a small bus rather than the vehicle pictured. The wines were delicious and the food was delicious as well. We had a great day and took a lot of pictures of the beautiful scenery.

A taste of tuscany
Aug 2021 • Friends
The tour was awesome. We went as four and were a group of 12 people. Everyone was very friendly and after the first few glasses of wine everyone connected with each other. Martina (our guide) had great expertise and you could feel the passion behind her job. Fernando (the driver) got us safe and sound through the hectic italien traffic. We got to see some of the most beatiful scenery around tuscany and probably the whole of italy. The wine selection was very good and we had to buy a few bottles as well. All in all it was a wonderful day and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to quite literally get a taste of tuscany.
