Fantastic tour
Aug 2020 • Family
It was a very nice day. We went together with 4 friends to do a tour on the Vespa with afterwards a wine tasting and delicious and regional meal. Dejan is a very enthousiastic spontaneous and handsome guide. He had nice stories and nice picture hotspots! Afterwards dejan gave us a private tour to all the hotspots in Florence. We really enjoyed the day.

Highlight of our trip!
Great day in Italy! Our tour host, Dejan was super friendly. There were only two other people on the tour with my husband and I, so very private experience. The host and wine tour guide, Francesco was amazing! Super knowledgeable. This is his family’s vineyard and you can tell how passionate he is about wine and olive oil. We learned so much and the food and wine were great! Highly recommend!

This trip was excellent. The day we did the tour there was only ourselves, and one other couple, which made for a very personal tour. The tour guide, Dejan, was an entertaining conversationalist on the way to and from the vineyard, and Francesco, the son of the vineyard owner, was friendly, very knowledgeable, and understandably proud of the wines they made. He patiently answered all our questions, no matter how stupid they were:-)
We sampled four wines, and all were excellent. The lunch provided was also excellent, and we were allowed to drink as much of the wine from the sample bottles as we wanted.
We bought some bottles to take home afterwards.

Wonderful Experience
Oct 2019
This was truly a small group experience which I very much appreciated. Our group consisted of a few couples who were riding bikes, a few couples who were riding Vespas and me - I was doing the wine tasting while the others rode through the scenic Tuscan hillside near the winery. We took a tour of the winery, then the groups went their way, and I was treated to a private tour of the vineyard and fantastic wine tasting. Then everyone met back at the winery for lunch. It was a fun experience and having spent a good deal of time in Napa and Sonoma, I really appreciated the education about wine making in Chianti as well as having the opportunity to taste some excellent wines. The tour guides were very nice and pointed out the sites on our drive to the vineyard. I planned several experiences for this trip and this one was definitely the best.

Dejan is worth the trip but the entire experience was fantastic. From the people we met to the winery and its owners it was a little step back to enjoy simple pleasures of good people, good food and especially, good wine.
