My husband and I are so glad we booked the wine tasting tour we cannot say enough! It was an absolute delight to drive through the Tuscan countryside in the vintage Fiats. If you'd like to see Tuscany without going far from city centre, this is the best way to do so.
David was a terrific tour guide and knew so much about the local agriculture. I felt as if we'd received a course on Tuscan food and wines by the time we were finished with the tour.
The wine tasting featured 4 wonderful wines produced by the villa that shared their clubhouse. It also included olive oil tasting and a light lunch... in the wine cellar. It is clear that the work this couple has done to scout locations for their tours has paid off! Everything was superb.
We were the only members of the tour which worked out perfectly as it happened to be on the same day as the Florence marathon. Due to the marathon route, it was impossible to get out of the city via taxi. By the time we realized this, we were already late. We spoke with David and he promised that if we could make it approximately 15 minutes walking after crossing the bridge from city centre, we could find a taxi to take us the rest of the way - and was absolutely correct. He was gracious enough to wait for us though we were close to an hour late. So thankful for his patience and helping us get there!
If we return to Florence, another tour from 500 Touring Club will be at the top of our list!
