We did Franco's Brunello tour in September last year and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (in fact, it was the highlight of our holiday). Franco is charming and his attention to detail is superb. We felt instantly relaxed in his company and did not feel like we were rushing around the region (like we have on some other tours). Franco picked us... More

Franco was great. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us through two scenic villages on our way to two special Tuscan wineries. The tours of the wineries were very informative and interesting. At the second winery we had a great lunch prepared by Aldo, a master chef and husband of Maddalena Cordella, who runs the winery. Also,... More

My wife and daughter had a wonderful experience in July 2015. The brunello wineries were a great experience. We are looking forward at doing again and sharing the experience with our friends in April of 2017

Ok!! So I owe Franco an apology. It has been 6 months since we took his Brunello tour... And we still haven't given him a review. He is passionate about his job and wine and takes into account all of his clients' needs. In our group we had Americans, Canadians, vegetarians, vegans, etc. and Franco went out of his way... More

Franco's tours are the best! You will feel like a local for the day. He is super helpful if you have any questions beforehand and will email you if needed. He picked us up from our hotel (that he suggested) and dropped us off. He is very good friends with the winery owners and the owners will make you feel... More

I traveled with my family to Italy in November, we were a group of nine, consisting of my husband and I and 7 young adults between 26 - 32. I contacted Franco online to book two days of wine tours. He was very responsive via email and was able to make recommendations on which win tour to complete so the... More

We booked with Franco for 2 one day tours. This first tour was to Montalcino for Brunello wine. He picked us up at our hotel in Sienna and we were the only two on the tour. We stopped so he could pick up some sausage, roasted pork and cheese to go with our first tasting. He also stopped for olive... More

We booked with Franco ahead of time for a day tour to Montalcino for wine tasting. He picked us up at our hotel around 9:15 am, there was just one other young woman with us that day. Along the way we stopped so he could pick up some fresh roasted pork and cheese to go with our first tasting. Our... More

I had a very enjoyable wine tasting experience with Franco - he is very considerate in serving the customers and knowledgeable about local tradition and wines. Franco stopped by hotel the night before the tour and left a note to the front desk. By the time I arrived in NH Siena hotel close to 10pm, the front desk helped to... More
