What a blast! If you are traveling with high school/college aged kids then take a break from all the museums and historical and amazing sites and do this for a day. Our boys (18 and 20) loved St Peters, the Vatican, the Coliseum, the Duomo, etc, but thanked us for a day in the countryside riding Vespas and taking a wine tour. (Just have to be a licensed driver). It’s a 30 min van drive out to the vespas, then a great ride along quiet farm land and wineries. We stopped in 2 quaint hilltop towns and had lunch/tour/wine tasting at a small winery. Good group. Both tour guides Lofti and Matteo were patient and polite entire day. The only caveat I would mention is that the meeting place was tricky to find - even our cab driver was perplexed- we ended up calling the bar where we were supposed to meet and they gave the cab driver more specific directions. So give yourself time to find it and avoid the stress. Otherwise, it was worth every dollar.
Beautiful experience I got to share with my Mother-in-Law! Gorgeous views around the property with an incredible dinner setting in the vineyard. The vibe is more of a relaxed, conversational, entertaining setting. While the hosts were very knowledgeable about the wines and explained everything well, the whole event was not centered around the wine. So if you are looking for a personal one-on-one wine tasting then this is not it. The wine was great, food was great, setting was great. A fun evening for sure! Highly recommend. The only slight downside was once night hit there were a few bugs attracted to the lights (they did not bite or sting) but what else can be expected when dining outside at night!
We really enjoyed our day. Lucky to be with pleasant people. I failed the Vespa test... so we took a mini Fiat that was seriously antique! There were three flip switches and an ashtray where our radios and GPS are now. For us, this added to the adventure. I wish I could show the pictures! My only request is to offer water at check in and before the last stop. It would be an added touch. All three stops were great! I will define recommend it.
Amazing! Cannot recommend this wine tour enough! The tour of the vineyard was so interesting and informative and the views of the property are breathtaking. The wine tasting session was so much fun! Our guide Francisco was great and made the day very enjoyable and educational. We left having learnt a lot about wine and were also very tipsy haha! We will be sure to come back again. Thanks a lot.
Driver Roman excellent, both with commentary and driving. The guided tour in sienna was very poor. The guide walked on too quickly, often could not hear her, she often looked at the feature and talked with her back to you, no introduction was given so we did not know in advance we would have to return and pay for entry into certain places. A microphone was needed.
