Great experience at a great price. Really fun day trip, lots of wine and a selection of meats and cheese we weren’t expecting. Emma was a great tour guide!! Only comment would be that it would’ve been nice to spend more time learning about the wine making process and/whilst taking time to walk around the vineyard and vines.

Valentina was an excellent guide. We enjoyed all the tidbits she shared. It made the experience more deligjtdul. She also recommended restaurants in the Florence area and she was quite personable.

Great day in Tuscany trying local wine and food - nice to enjoy the countryside and the town visited (2 wineries and free time in San gimignano)

The guide was amazing and his work ethos and knowledge was great. Was always looking out for me and I would highly recommend this trip
