What people are saying about Greve in Chianti

We were the first of 2020 to book this tour and were only 2 for a usual capacity of 7 people, but they still keep the reservation. Our guide (Gilberto) was really great, he explained the secrets of the region to every corner. Then, arrived at the vineyard, very warm welcome, simple but very good meal, and wine tasting as well as the explanation of the creation process: perfect! I highly recommend this tour, I would even say that it is one of my best memories of our trip to Tuscany.

The excursion was wonderful. Even though it was just me and my wife, the tour wasn't cancelled. Gilberto is a great guide, he explained many things about Tuscany, gave us great tips on what to do in our next destinations and took us to a very beautiful farm, where the owner was super attentive, explained to us about the production of Chianti wine and offered us a delicious lunch. I super recomend it!

Amazing day tour with our guide Gilberto who was knowledgable, friendly and took very good care of us. We had a private tour as we were the only couple and that made it really special. Lunch was amazing with the most gorgeous views. Wine tasting was fabulous.

A very nice experience. It was our first venture of this kind. It all worked out well and is a wonderful trip to the Chianti region. We recommend

Great afternoon trip, with a couple of vineyards we’d never have discovered by ourselves. Tour leader was excellent!
