    This was such great value for money. Alessandro & Riccardo took very good care of us on our trip. It was well organised and kept to a timely schedule. Alessandro (guide) is very enthusiastic and has a wealth of knowledge to share. He also makes some great jokes that keeps the information enjoyable rather than a history lesson.

    The guide from the service was just ok. She spoke English and was nice but was quiet mostly the entire bus ride and admitted to knowing nothing about wine. The people at the two places we did wine tours were super nice and knowledgeable. Both in beautiful places. The town we went to was nice but also there was one we passed much closer to Florence that would have cut out a lot of driving. Most of the experience was driving.
