We visited three wineries. The food and wine was outstanding. Our driver did a great job navigating the curves and right roads to take us up and into the countryside. Alex our host for the entire trip was informative and had a great personality. My wife and I loved it. We also made friends within our group.

This was easily the best thing we did on our trip to Italy. Not just amazing wine but so much learning about Tuscan wine making and Tuscany in general. Martina was so warm, welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable. Cannot recommend enough.

Super special day I'll remember forever!

I was recommended this specific tour by a friend who did it a few years before, and she did not overhype it. Our guide, Martine, was incredible and so charismatic. As a sommelier, she had so much valuable (and accessible) info about wine but also anything and everything related to Florence, Tuscany, the wine region, Italy as a whole — just amazing. She even gave us recommendations for future legs of our Italian vacation, as well as for the neighborhood we were staying in in Florence. Even though it sprinkled a bit it was still just a stunningly gorgeous tour. The monster bus we were on was very comfortable (ideal for when you inevitably need a nap) and Martine really filled the trek over with so many interesting facts and stories that the time flew by as we traveled to the first winery. All of the wine and food pairings were delicious, and the lunch was just incredible (I wish I had 3 stomachs to eat everything). I really liked that we learned about olive oil production and did a small tasting as well. We ended up buying a couple bottles of wine at the last winery, they were so good. I loved stopping in the small town of Greve too, I highly recommend grabbing gelato and checking out the leather shop. I found THE perfect black and gold leather belt there and the shop owner tailored it specifically to me. All in all, worth the money and such a magical day! Perfect for whatever knowledge of wine you have too. I booked this to have a nice day in Tuscany with all the logistics handled for me, but feel like I got a lot more out of it. Also, if you get motion sick like me (or are afraid you will), I highly recommend non-drowsy Dramamine. I took some and had absolutely no problem with the travel portions on the bus.
