Best Way to Get Out and See the Countryside
Sep 2021
We were staying in Florence for a couple nights and wanted to do an excursion and go way outside the city. I think we found the perfect tour. The wines we tried that were included were across the board fantastic. The creamy truffle ravioli at the restaurant was probably the best pasta dish I have ever had, ever. Alex was fun and had no trouble at all filling several hours of bus travel with interesting info about what we were seeing all around us. This was easily the best thing we did in Florence and I would recommend it to anyone.

Outstanding!!
This tour was incredible! Our guide Alex was so engaging, friendly and made the experience so much more enjoyable. He was even able to give us some restaurant recommendations for our other destinations. The wineries were absolutely stunning, and the tours were informative but not drawn out. If you are thinking about this tour, absolutely book it now - this was an exquisite experience.

Fabulous Tuscan Winery tour!
This experience was incredible! We booked this as part of our wedding weekend festivities and had a group of about 25 of us. The company totally privatized the tour for just our group and was super accommodating, especially while Covid is still present. The wineries were beautiful, our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and pleasant! Everyone had an absolute blast, all the food and wines and information was very well planned out. Don’t hesitate to book this one! One tip, If you get motion sickness, I would recommend taking something before getting on the bus :)

Fantastic, Perfect Day in Tuscany
Oct 2021
Our group of 9 American and Canadian travelers booked this trip based on previous reviews and we can all agree we were NOT disappointed! Our tour guide, Lavinia from Walkabout Tours, led us on an enjoyable, relaxing day across Tuscany with stops in Chianti, Lamole, and Greve. The wine, olive oil, and food were all fantastic, and we absolutely felt we got a "bang for our buck." For most of us, this was our first trip since the pandemic began, and I think during our two weeks in Italy, this was a highlight. Can't recommend enough!

Best experience during our 10 day trip in Italy! Highly Recommend!
Oct 2021
Martina was a wonderful host, my husband and I learned so much during our day trip! This experience was amazing and fulfilled my "Under The Tuscan Sun" dreams! The vineyards we visited were beautiful and the lunch at the second vineyard was beyond tasty. My favorite dish of our trip was during lunch, we had a delicious truffle cheese ravioli that I could've had 10 more plates of. I would recommend this trip to anyone and it is definitely worth every penny!

Would highly recommend!! Alex was great. He was a fountain of knowledge regarding the region and we really enjoyed the day. Both the food and wine was top notch. They were also very accommodating to my wife who was a vegetarian.

Chianti Classico Magnifico
The fading sun danced in and out of the Cypress tress that stood like sentinels along the road back to Florence. I glanced at my wife and saw the coy smile of someone who knew they had just made a memory that would last a lifetime.

We can’t recommend this tour enough. We learned so much about the winemaking process from our amazing guide and sommelier Alex. The selections for tasting were authentic Chianti Classico and food pairing brought out the best in the wines.

A unique and fantastic experience for those who seek adventure and La Dolce Vita.

Ciao

Great times & beautiful memories!
Oct 2021
This tour was SO MUCH FUN! My mom and I booked this tour already expecting it would be a wonderful experience since we would get to see different wineries and try various wines of the region, but this tour absolutely went above and beyond our expectations. Not only was our tour guide, Alex, a wonderful, lively, and fun human, but also his expansive knowledge about various wines and olive oils of the region enhanced the experience as a whole and made this one of the most memorable days of our trip to Florence. Then to also get to enjoy a wonderful meal with an amazing view and good company, does life get any better than that?? Highly recommend for any and all wine and fun lovers out there.

10/10 spectacular
Oct 2021
If you're thinking about taking this tour, think no more. Book it! It was incredible from start to finish. Our guide Lavinia was spectacular! She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It was a perfect day full of delicious wine, stunning scenery and tasty eats. I just cannot say enough good things. My mom and I both had a great time making memories we'll not soon never forget.

Also, have to give kudos to the driver of that vehicle! We did a little off-roading and I'm sure glad he was driving and not me!!
