Great wine and conversation
Amy_L

Lovely tour of Tuscan countryside. We took a van from Florence with two other couples, one who took a Vespa tour and a father/daughter who did a Jeep adventure while the three of us did wine tasting. We started with a tour of the wine cellar, then divided to do our adventures, then met back up for lunch before heading back into town. The owner of the vineyard was fourth generation and incredibly knowledgeable about wine making and tasting. “Borat” our driver was lively and entertaining. Our group had a great energy and everyone was interesting. We wished we could have seen more of the outdoors as part of our tour because the weather was perfect, but that was the only criticism. Otherwise lovely people and an activity worth every penny.

What a brilliant day. From checking in at Tuscany Cycles to drop off back in Florence we could not fault the entirety of the experience. Francesco is a passionate and generous host , and his wines speak volumes for the love that has made them. Thank you for a truly amazing day.

Great time but needed more communication

We had a wonderful time on our wine tasting. The guides was very helpful and friendly. The owner of the winery was knowledgeable, inviting and delightful. The food was delicious. We only wished we had more notice when the tour was leaving. We went outside after lunch for a surprise champagne toast but didn’t know we were leaving directly after and would not have time to go back and purchase wine or olive oil which we would have loved to do!

Wine and laughter with Francesco “Chandler” Bing

The drive to the castle is stunning. Like a moving Tuscan postcard. The castle has an incredible history and Amazing ruins the the Bing family has discovered during renovations of their home. Francesco is hilarious and a generous host. We had a private wine tasting and then a delicious lunch with the rest of our party. Thx. Kerry and Steven

What can I say “borat” was hilarious from start the finish. Nice ride to the countryside. What a view! When we arrived Francesco was amazing. Learned a lot about wine and the lunch was spot on. I highly recommend this tour if you have a decent chunk of your day to spare. It won’t disappoint

Beautiful castle very rushed experience
lauraRamona
, Sep 2018
The castle looked very nice, for someone who loves history this is the place to be. We enjoyed the story of the castle and the surroundings. The wine was also very good. The lunch provided was a but disappointing for how much we paid. Just some pasta, cheese, salami and some leaves. There was poor communication from the girl hosting the meal, we were not told if we could leave the table or go outside to have a look around. The scenery is beautiful but you don’t get much time. You spend too much time inside in the castle basement.

We loved this tour and tour company. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Nice relaxing ride out of the city of Florence with fun and very knowledgeable guides. Once you arrive you either tour the Castle or take an amazing Vespa ride through the Italian countryside. We opted for the Wine Tasting and Castle tour. Alberto, our guide was amazing, we learned about wines and olive oil and had a great time.
