Our Guide was simply “Superb” in every way! She was extremely knowledgeable about the wine industry, the countryside and the history of the Castle we visited, as well as, the history of wine growers in Italy! The Location she choose for our lunch in Tuscany, was awesome, the food selection, preparation & taste was incredible. We were served on the patio with an unbeatable view of the winery, and oh, what a charming dining facility! It was my sister & brother-in-law 50th Anniversary, and this tour could not have been more perfect and more memorable! Thank you to everyone!

This trip was amazing!! Danielle was an amazing guide and so knowledgeable about wine, especially the Chianti region. This trip is not touristy and it really gives you an authentic experience. You visit a castle and get a glass of wine there, then you visit a small local winery where you get multiple tastings and a large lunch. Then you visit an old villa for more wine tastings and snacks. We ended up having a ton of wine and food. Definitely worth the cost!
