Having gone to wine tours in California, Bordeaux and the Chianti region, this was one the best experiences. Having been born and raised in Siena, Franco made the tour an authentic experience. He was a knowledgeable wine expert - he took us to three wineries, with at least 3 wine tastings and food pairings at each place. He is a... More

My husband and I honeymooned in Italy and did Franco Faddo's tour of Montepulciano in March. He picked us up in Siena, we made a stop at a delicious vineyard, then had the most delicious lunch (that Franco arranged) from a private chef, and then went on to another vineyard before stopping in the town of Montepulciano. Franco was a... More

Franco was a wonderful host and guide. His personality and knowledge of the area made the tour very enjoyable. Every winery we visited we were greeted by the wine makers and made to feel very welcome. We got to see everything to do with the production of the wine, from fermentation tanks to barrels to labelling and packaging. Best of... More

We loved our tour with Franco as it felt like a day out with friends. We visited three different wineries; each one was very hospitable, very chilled out and very generous with the wine and food. There was certainly no shortage! Franco is clearly very passionate about wine, food, good company and animals; all of which was reflected in his... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful day with Franco visiting Montalcino. Franco arrived right on time at our hotel in the morning with a smile on his face and ready to share his knowledge and love of wine, food and Tuscany with us. He took us to 3 different and lovely wineries and helped to arrange a wine shipment... More

Franco is such a great guide and host. Very knowledgeable about the wine and region, always accommodating to requests, and a lot of fun to spend the day with. This was my second Brunello tour with Franco and both times were great. I highly recommend!

My review is very overdue, but I had to comment on the amazing time that my wife and I had with Franco. He is a true professional, and an overall great guy. He knew a lot about the wines, and what was even better was to see him interact with the wine makers like old friends. It truly seemed like... More

We did the Brunello tour with Franco in May 2016 and it was a highlight of our vacation. He picked us up from our accommodation at 9 AM and stopped at a small local baker to pick up charcuterie supplies on the way to our first stop. We went to Solaria which had good wine and even better olive oil,... More

We did Franco's Brunello tour in September last year and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (in fact, it was the highlight of our holiday). Franco is charming and his attention to detail is superb. We felt instantly relaxed in his company and did not feel like we were rushing around the region (like we have on some other tours). Franco picked us... More

Franco was great. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us through two scenic villages on our way to two special Tuscan wineries. The tours of the wineries were very informative and interesting. At the second winery we had a great lunch prepared by Aldo, a master chef and husband of Maddalena Cordella, who runs the winery. Also,... More
