We booked Donatella's tour based mainly on the feedback from other trip advisors so we thought we needed to follow-up on that ourselves.

True to the many glowing reviews, Donatella is a wonderful, charming and knowledgeable hostess through a full day of touring the tuscan countryside, intimate experiences with boutique winemakers and an unforgettable lunch!

We found the wineries we visited to be unique and loved hearing the stories from the owners themselves about their wines and why they make them. Really helped us to understand the region, the wines, and the people so much better. Thank you Donatella for an amazing day - one we will not soon forget.

Ciao!

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Italy and this was definitely one of our favorite experiences. If you are debating booking it, do it. As all the previous reviews say, Donatella is amazing. Funny, nice, extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. We did the Brunello tour with a few other people who were great. 3 wineries and the hosts at each of the wineries were very nice as well. The views at each of the wineries almost felt they were fake they were so nice. Wine was amazing, lunch that Donatella takes you to may have been the best meal in Italy. My wife and I were staying outside of Siena so when Donatella dropped us off she went out of her way (after a full day of tour) to show us around.

Thank you Donatella and we will see you in our next trip to Tuscany!

Don't hesitate - book this tour!!! This was seriously the best decision we made for our trip to Italy (and we had A LOT of wonderful experiences)! Donatella is just the best - a true people person who loves her job, and it shows! We choose the Brunello tour and I can't imagine a better experience! Donatella took us to 3 small family-run wineries in Montalcino, each one more charming and breathtaking than the last. We learned a lot about the process and everything that goes into making this special wine, and met the amazing people that owned and ran the wineries. Each location had generous amounts of wine to sample, along with tasty appetizers. However, the highlight of the trip was the private lunch make just for us by the cutest Italian man - Umberto, I believe. He is retired, but opens his property just for Donatella and cooks for her tours. It was one of the best meals we had in Italy! Overall, everyone in my family was thrilled with the experience and would recommend it 100% - it was amazing!!!
