LOVED this tour and our guide (Her name started with an M). This was a smaller group tour in a van which is what we were looking for (as opposed to a large group in a bus). We went to different regions with their own unique and beautiful qualities which made it feel like we got to see a lot in one day. If you are wanting a wine focused experience, then this is it. The small group was great and we got to learn and ask a lot of questions. We had lunch in a vineyard then there were light snacks at the other vineyards. We had an opportunity to walk around to see the fortress, Montalcino, and the Abbey. Wine plus great sights made it a great tour.
Beyond wonderful experience. I could not have asked for a better day in the Montalcino. The tour included absolutely everything that I could have asked for - wine tastings at local vineyards, driving through the Tuscan countryside, eating a real Tuscan meal prepared by an local Italian, and getting picturesque views from Montalcine. It was worth the value, especially for someone like me with limited knowledge in wines. We had a small group of five total for the tour, and it was nice to be part of a small group of all different backgrounds and get a really good explanation on what it takes to make Brunello. Cannot recommend this tour enough.
At september 14 morning the bus pick up us (was late like 30min, they arrived from Florance, i guess the traffic was crazy) Had a wonderful day with our tour guides- she was soooo informative and spoke 3languages- first stip Montalcino. Drinking wine, had a little.... little! snack. Than heading to Pienza. Try some pecorino there,goes around the town(we had like 40-50 minutes) :( and travelling to our last stop to Montepulciano. Over all, trip was fine, good weather, nice wines (take food with you or prepare yoursef to eat quick at these towns’ reastaurants) Thanks for everything!
Highly recommend this tour! We had a great day going to three selected and very different wineries. Our guide Daniele shared his knowledge and passion about wine in general and the Montalcino region in particular with us. The highlight of the day was our homemade lunch at a small family run winery where the hosts made us feel like being friends rather than visitors. Overall, the tour was very informative and enjoyable!
I loved this trip! It was very worth the money! I wish there was more wine tasting however. I was expecting to visit several vineyards, but only wen't to one.
