So very disappointed in what could have been such a nice tour. We had a female guide, obviously not the one that received such high praise in the other reviews. The only plus was that it was a small group of 7. My family and 2 other couples. This was one of our most expensive tours that we splurged on so with high hopes of tasting really good wines and having an actual sommelier. She was not a sommelier. What we did get was 18 sips of wine and a lecture on how the Italians don’t drink more than one glass of wine because they are satisfied if the wine is really good quality. Our pours were literally 2 sips of wine each. Even with lunch she did not give more than 2 sips of wine. They were also not all supertuscans. Only 3-4 were, the rest were not and they were ok to average wines. The food was just ok, the olive oil at the restaurant was delicious however. I paid for three of us and I know my son is not drinking age but they could have at least poured me or my husband his wine for us to drink since we paid full price for him to see the countryside. Not worth it!!!!!

Dear Sarah, first of all thank you for joining our VIP Semi-private Supertuscan Wine tour: Masterclass by a Wine Expert. We appreciate the time and effort you have spared to give us this review. We always accept all reviews as an essential element in our strive to continually maintain and exceed expectations, as well as provide the highest standards on our tours. I am sorry to read the tour did not meet your expectations. Our apologies for this, first of all. I have investigated with the guide you had on the tour to better understand. From your feedback, it seems that the perception that you got a small amount of wine, prevented you from fully enjoy the whole experience, which is obviously not only about drinking wine (although this is a big focus) but also exploring the wonderful Tuscan countryside and discovering three very different wineries while learning about wine production. As you say, this is a VIP semi-private tour, as the maximum number of participants is set to 8. All the guides that lead this tour are wine experts (either sommeliers or studying as sommeliers, or having completed wine-related studies). Only the most knowledgeable guides about wine are allowed to guide this tour. You visited three wineries, including all their cellars, plus the actual vineyards of one of them. She has actually confirmed me that she explained the wine production processes extensively, as well as the different grape varieties you met in the vineyards, and all the different characteristics of each wine you tasted. Regarding the wines, you tasted a total of 9 different wines, 5 of which were Supertuscans. The other wines are Chianti or Chianti Classico wines, some of which have also been awarded by international experts and guides. It is true, and you will experience this everywhere in Italy, that wine is part of our culture and we are used to drink moderate quantities of wine, even everyday, preferring quality over quantity. The quantity we have set on these wine tastings reflects this, giving you the opportunity to well understand and appreciate each wine, without exaggerating (with the risk of feeling not well, especially if you are not used to drink wine everyday and you have to drink 9 different wines during the morning). Also, these are standard quantities for wine tastings. Usually, at the third boutique winery, where you also have lunch, a bit more wine is served if a guest requests it (also because you are now accompanying the wine with a full lunch, which reduces the alcohol effects). You are right when you say that you could have had a bit more wine, even considering your son did not drink it, but the guide told me that noone requested. So, I'm sure the guide would have poured you some more wine, had you requested, but our apologies anyway, given she did not ask it. Your guide during the tour is the person in charge of making your experience a memorable one, therefore we appreciate every time a guest openly speaks to the guide, even on the tour, to make sure her/his expectations are met. Probably just doing this would have changed your experience and your perception of it. Please always remember that our guides are there to do their best in order to let you fully live an authentic Italian experience. Anyway, I strongly invite you to try other Florencetown tours, to have a full picture on our services and the quality and passion we deliver. Furthermore, I invite everyone to read several reviews on our tours, to have a more complete perspective on the quality that Florencetown delivers on them. Again, thank you for your precious feedback and looking forward to welcoming you back to Florence! Best regards Edoardo Giacometti Director of Regular Tours - Florencetown

My mum and I had a wonderful day touring the beautiful Chianti region with Matt as our guide. Being a sommelier, Matt was so knowledgeable and ready to answer our questions. We learnt so much about the wine, the people and the different wine making techniques.

Lunch was also delicious and it was lovely that Matt made sure my mum who is gluten free was catered for.

Each winery we visited was beautiful and the history given to us from Matt about the buildings and the land was very interesting.

We would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is in Florence and would enjoy a day out touring the countryside, whilst drinking wine!!

We had an amazing experience on our Tuscany wine tour with Florencetown tours. Our guide Matthew (Matteo) was so pleasant and knowledgeable. He answered all of our questions and taught us so much about the different wines and the region. We really enjoyed this tour and would definitely recommend it! We had great wine and a delicious lunch as well. What a fun day! Ask for Matthew, he’s the best!

Terrific day spent in the Chianti region touring three different wine and olive oil producers. Our guide, Matteo, has a deep passion for the region and his expertise and insight into the varied wines and vineyards made for an extremely enjoyable day. We appreciated spending the day with Matteo, lunch in a boutique winery, and his assistance helping us select some outstanding wines.

My husband and I visited Florence for our honeymoon. We had planned to do one tour (the VIP Super Tuscans wine tour), but ended up doing three (the Royals & Artisans tour and Bike Tour). All of our guides -- Fabio (bike tour), Matteo (Super Tuscans) and Lisa (Royals & Artisans) -- were amazing. They were very knowledgable and personable. Would highly recommend that anyone visiting Florence take advantage of at least one, if not more, of these tours. We would especially recommend taking a VIP tour, as we enjoyed the small group experience.

I have been on a lot of tours over the years and I have to say this was one of the very best of the best. Our tour guide, Matteo, was knowledgeable and engaging and whether you know about wines or have zero knowledge you will come away feeling like an expert.

The vineyards you will visit are a mix of historical and modern; make sure to have walking shoes so you can enjoy the walk along the vineyards and exploring the wine cellars. Also, keep your camera (or phone) handy since you will have great vistas to snap.

You will learn how to taste wines and will end up with an "authentic Italian lunch" in a beautiful setting. Nothing could be more relaxing and just a better value all round.

ENJOY!!!!
