Perfect day in Chianti area.
Sep 2020
We enjoyed the whole experience, the beautiful views of the countryside, the visits to the wineries, the excellent wines sampled and the accompanying local delicacies. Lunch was excellent and in a beautiful location. Our guide, Stefano, was good humoured, informative and friendly and gave a really good commentary and explanations. A superb day out from Florence, we did not travel in an off road vehicle as advertised but a very comfortable air-conditioned mini-bus driven very carefully on the country roads. This is a very relaxing and enjoyable day out that would be hard to arrange yourself especially given the wine consumed!

Best group tour we have been to to date. The wineries that you get taken to are breathtaking. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and presented the information in a fun way. Goes without saying but the wine was also very tasty.

The most amazing day!
Absolutely loved our day exploring the Tuscan wine region guided by the amazing Martina. The vineyards we visited were beautiful and we were able to taste some amazing wines.
Martina was so knowledgeable and even threw in a surprise blind olive oil tasting, which was really useful.
Lunch was delicious and with a spectacular view.
It was genuinely a fantastic day which exceeded our expectations, and Martina definitely was a big part of that.

One of the best tours we have done!
We loved everything about this tour. First of all, we had a very knowledgeable tour guide, his name is Alex. He provided us with very interesting information and facts about the Chianti region.

We drove in a comfortable van with leather seating and had a lovely driver.

We visited several wineries and had the most amazing sceneries while driving around and visiting the wineries. We visited wine cellars and learned a lot about the process of wine making.

The tastings were done in different settings and were all perfect! The different wines were pleasant to drink and the food pairing was beautifully done.

We spend some free time in Greve, a charming village and had some really good gelato!

This tour over exceeded our expectations and I think it is worth every penny! You won't be dissapointed.

Thank you Alex, for making this a very memorable tour!

A perfect day in Chianti
Jul 2020 • Couples
This tour far surpassed our expectations. There were only 9 of us and it felt like a private tour tailored just to us. Each of the 3 stops were unique and we learned so much. Martina was an amazing tour guide, super knowledgeable and fun. This was easily our favourite day on our trip through Italy.

Amazing experience
Jul 2019
We did this tour almost a year back and it was amazing. We got really busy right afterwards and completely forgot to review it, even though I had taken notes so we didn't forget it. We were looking back at some of the pictures today and that's when it hit us; how inconsiderate we had been for not posting this sooner.

Stefano, the guide, was just superb. He explained every little detail and then some. As soon as we got on The Beast the trip took off to an experience that honestly was burned into our souls. Every time we buy wine we think about all the special things, labels, and details that go into it. And as funny as it may sound the same is true for olive oil. Who the heck would've thought we would also learn so much about olive oil as well.

Whether you are by yourself in the region or with someone else. If you have the time you must do this. And if you don't, I recommend you make the time. It is just one of those experiences that seems to live with you.

And make sure you ask for Stefano and that you look for The Beast.

Amazing tour with an amazing guide!
Jun 2019
We visited three beautiful wineries throughout the Chianti region and our guide Gloria was amazing at telling the story of each one. She provided great detail in describing the processes used to produce the wine and olive oil. When it came to tasting, she made sure we knew what we were doing so we could identify the subtle flavours in the wines and olive oil that we tasted. We ended the day doing some shopping in Greve. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence and wants to go on a unique wine tasting experience!

Amazing experience
Mar 2020
This tour was one of our best experiences in Italy. It is a full day activity but they take you all over the Chianti area to have different wines and cheese. The lunch was unreal yummy with a great view. Alex was an amazing tour guide that you can just tell loves what he does and is great at it too. Honestly, they could charge triple the price and this tour would still be worth it.

Wonderful full day experience!
Mar 2020 • Couples
My husband and I booked this tour as part of our honeymoon. Alex was our guide and was extremely friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. We were fortunate enough to be in a group with only two other couples which made the experience even more special and personalized. Tasted many great cheeses, meats, and Chianti wines at three different wineries. Beautiful views and the off-road vehicle is very fun and comfortable. Alex guided us through all the pairings and we learned a lot about the wine making process as well. Highly recommend this tour! We even stopped in a small town on the way back to Florence where we were able to walk around on our own but we opted to stick with our group and try some Grappa as well as check out the amazing local butcher shop. Great day! Will be talking about this for years to come!
