“One of the highlights of our trip. Very enjoyable for those of us who drove and who rode as a passenger. I appreciated that they gave us each a quick overview and test drive in the lot before leaving, because there were some who didn't need to drive alone. However, it results in some waiting around at the beginning of your day. Also, while vespas are relatively easy to ride, be aware that you are riding with other traffic.”
“We had the most fantastic trip on our brunello wine tour. It was the best tour on our whole Italian trip. Daniel our expert guide was so funny, passionate and informative about the full processes of wine making from start to finish. He was also fantastic at answering any questions and a tour guide of the areas we were traveling through. He even stopped at the hilltop town of montalcino and a beautiful hidden Abbey. We visited three separate Vinyards all fantastic however the Vinyard where we had the most outstanding lunch was the highlight. We both thought it was the best lunch of our whole trip, Grazie Laura. We wouldn't hesitate to go in this tour again if we return to Tuscany, if you get Daniel he totally makes your trip. Thank you for a great day.”
