What people are saying about Greve in Chianti

Absolutely the best day of our trip. Stefano is a wonderful guide and he has composed such a nice experience for guests. The trekking was definitely reasonable for any fitness level (I was very out of shape for this trip) and really added to the experience, being able to see the beautiful countryside and historical architecture in the region. It was so special meeting the vineyard owners and hearing them talk about their wine with such pride. Lunch made by one of the wine maker’s mothers was out of this world good. Just remarkably charming. Stefano is knowledgeable in all sorts of things so kept the walking portions of the tour engaging and fun. He’s just a fun person to be around. I wish we could take him to Rome to lead the rest of our excursions on our tour of Italy! Book this experience - you will love it!

We had a wonderful time exploring San Gimignano, Montefiorella, and tasting wine and food in two Tuscan Chianti wineries. It was so much fun, everything was well organised and Daniele was a helpful, generous and knowledgeable host.
