The views and winery were amazing. Wine was good too. Bread was super stale and olive oil would have been better if bread was better. I purchased some wine but not olive oils.

It was an amazing day in the Siena countryside. The scenery was fantastic and the three wineries we visited were very good. I had looked forward to this excursion for a long time and it was worth the wait.

Must do it! One can not say that you were in La Toscana if you don’t do this day trip I. The world of wines and food! Daniel was the best guide we could asked for! The love and passion for the land made the experience incredible! We had the most happy day, drinking wine and understanding the meaning of slow food and a how life is wonderful! I most warned you, after you have this tasting ordering wine in a restaurant will never be the same! ;)

We've had a fantastic tourguide; Daniele. He had a great story about everything you want to know, was very social and had great humor. He made sure everybody felt comfortable all the time and you could sense that he loves the job. He talked very passionate about it.
We've had a delicious lunch at a small vineyard, also with the best wines.

This was probably one of the highlights of our two weeks in Italy. We wanted to do this tour, not just for wine, but also to see the Montalcino area without having to drive. There were 4 of us total in tour so very personal and small, which is always nice. It lasted about 9 hours so its definitely an all day tour. We went to three wineries, all different from each other so that made it interesting. We also went to an Abby and to the town of Montalcino so we could walk around. We had an amazing lunch with the most gracious host in one of the wineries in their house. It was so amazing. Our tour guy Daniele was so nice and informative and we really just had the best time. Highly recommend if you have the time.

We visited three unique vineyards that provided a great overview to the Montalcino region. The second vineyard is where we had lunch with the family running the vineyard. Really enjoyed getting to know the unique characteristics of Brunello!

This was supposed to be a 3 winery tasting/tour with lunch. The first winery had a great tasting and tour. The second was no winery tour, wine with lunch was poorly described by the 'host'- who was really there to push his business (not the winery), with short supply of wines. We were lectured at throughout lunch. Tasty and plentiful lunch, though. Third winery was very busy, so not much of a tasting, but really nice people and talk with the winemaker. Our driver was great, and knowledgeable, but I was expecting more wine tasting/winery tour and less lecture/sales.

This daytrip was a highlight of a wonderful 2-week trip with a group of friends. Our guide Giorgia was particularly helpful in accommodating us, showing the area and getting us into excellent experiences away from the throngs. We wanted to take her home with us. She arranged a lunch with a vintner and his wife that was positively spectacular. We could have spent 3 days in the area and not had as complete a visit as she provided in several hours. The area is stunningly beautiful, the wine delicious, and having a superb driver and guide was priceless.

William was exceptional. He made us feel welcome the minute we stepped aboard. Great knowledge of the area and his country’s history. His personality was exuberant and infectious. All of the vineyards had something different to offer. We highly recommend William and the wine tour he represents. Regards, The Chouinard Family - Goffstown, NH

Of all that we saw and did in our 10-day trip to Tuscany, this was tops. We expected it to be interesting and fun, but it was also an adventure. Our driver, Amber, was terrific. She picked us up in the van and off we went into the countryside and up hills, deep into the wine-producing land and through villages. The ride is not for the infirm or faint of heart--the roads are rough and steep and you get rocked around in your seatbelt. There was an early change of plan because of a bicycle race in the area of our first vineyard stop; Amber and the other drivers punted and we were taken to a wonderful family vineyard and home for a tour and tasting on their lovely patio. Then on and up to a gorgeous hilltop vineyard for a sit-down lunch with the other van groups, 30 of us in all. Fine wines, wonderful food, amazing scenery. We were taken to yet another lovely winery and toured more of the area before being driven back into Siena. It was a long day, just great, well worth the price.

Great experience on the Brunello di Montalcino wine tasting trip. Small group of 7 in a small van which was important because of the roads we had to traverse. Our guide William was extremely knowledge about wines and the trip to the first winery he explained many important things about the process. We saw 3 wineries with a lunch at the second one. Lunch was terrific with a starter of pasta (delicious) followed by wild boar which was incredible. Try to get William if you plan to go. We do order wines and olive oil to be shipped back to Florida.

This is a great tour, full of information, good wine, and fun people. It is a full day so don't plan on doing much else on that day. Our driver, David, was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. We learned a lot, ate, and drank wine with friendly people in Tuscany. What could go wrong?

We learned so much during this authentic tour while also having a lot of fun in the process. Our tour guide was an expert in wine making himself and every winery we went to made us feel comfortable while also showing us every bit of the wine making process.
