I contacted Franco on Tuesday as I was heading to Siena from Cinque Terre about possibility of Tuscan wine tour on Thursday or Friday, Franco was very polite and timely in response and said there is a tour available for Thursday, with another couple joining, so only 3 people will be touring with him. He informed me the price which... More

My friend and I spend an absolutely wonderful day touring about the beautiful Tuscan countryside with Franco and one other couple. Franco was a perfect host, and paired wines to taste together with the food presented. We learned so much! Not only did we taste wines and great food, but were introduced to to the entire production process of different... More

A good friend and I are both US transplants living in Europe and decided to meet up for a weekend in Tuscany. After researching several different wine tour options in Tuscany we opted for Franco based on the shining reviews from so many others on TripAdvisor. As someone who tends to avoid the large tour bus experiences, I was happy... More

My mom and I recently went on the Montalcino tour with Franco and 2 other "groups" (for a total of 6 in our whole tour) and we could not have been happier we booked it! Not wanting to be restricted by someone else's schedule or be forced into going to typical touristy areas I was reluctant to book a tour... More

We booked the tour with last minute, 10PM Thursday night, and Franco was able to pick us up Friday at 9AM to start the tour. It was just myself, my husband and Franco. Franco handled all the winery reservations, food and transportation. He was very knowledgeable of the region and I think he might know everyone in Tuscany. If you... More

My wife and I received several recommendations to go to Montalcino in Siena Italy and tour the Brunello wineries. We opted to search for a wine tour so a local expert could show us around. We chose Franco Fadda tours and were extremely satisfied. Franco seemingly knew every local in Montalcino. He took us to two excellent wineries with meats... More

Ciao! My husband and did the Brunello di Montalcino tour today with Franco and it was spectacular! We were lucky enough to be alone on the tour and Franco made the tour an amazing personal experience! He knows everybody and everybody loves him. We visited two vineyards and had an absolutley delicious lunch! The wine was wonderful and Franco was... More

My friend and I did two days of wine tours with Franco, and it was extraordinary! We definitely learned how to wine taste the Tuscany way, and believe me it's a much better experience than any touring I've done in Cailfornia (I live in CA and have been all over the Healdsburg, Napa, and Sonoma regions). With Franco you don't... More

We had a wonderful tour of Montelpuciano with Franco! He was extremely knowledgeable and knew all about the wines and wineries. We met many wonderful people throughout the day--all friends of Franco's. Lunch was AMAZING--a 4 course feast cooked by a chef in his kitchen. They were very kind about accommodating us as vegetarians (plus no milk!) and the lunch... More

We are passionate about wine and food and did a lot of research before selecting Franco. We wanted the type of tour that was not rushed and which would give us access to the top small wineries in the Brunello region plus included a full authentic Tuscan lunch. Franco definitely delivered! My husband and I did the group tour and... More
