Joined the Grape Escape Winery Tour on 30th January 2020 with our guide Manolo, who speaks very good English and explained everything clearly. Very humorous and never failed to entertain us during the whole journey. Went to taste some awesome wines at two winery and the best balsamic ever! Would highly recommend anyone who wishes to try the wines, olives and balsamic of Tuscany.

This was the most fun tour we did in Italy. We had an amazing guide and she was speaking lots of languages! (Sorry i forgot her name, too much wine I guess?). We had nice discussions, made some friends and the two wineries were nice. We liked the first one morr. San Gimignano was stunning and a nice add to our trip. The view of the Toscane region was beautiful even in winter. I had a cold and was hesitant to book but i’m glad i did even if i didn’t taste all the delicacy of the wines. Totally recommend!

This tour was awesome! Super fun. Our guide Eduardo was amazing. He did a great job of making us all feel welcome and encouraged us to all get to know each other on the tour. You could tell he loves his job which made it that much more enjoyable! We loved learning about the history of the region as we travelled in the car. They took great care of us. Even though my friend and I got lost in town, he went above and beyond to help find us and get us back safely. 10/10 would recommend this tour. Had a lot of fun, drank a lot of wine, and walked away with new knowledge and great memories!!
