  • "Give more time in Castilla, the parking is far, and only the walking distance to the Main Street you have to go back to the bus!!!" See review
  • "If your plan is to get drunk, you probably either want one of the more expensive wine tours, or supplement your intake in Greve." See review

It was an okay tour! Just felt very rushed at each place and wine servings were very small. But very affordable and do get to see 4 different locations. The tour guide was very nice.

Great wine tasting experience

The hosts at the 2 wineries were great. The tastings were really good as we were at small production wineries. Part of the fun was our bus broke down so they had to send another. I cant think of a better place to have a breakdown. Some of us went in and bought a few bottles and we sat outside at a table and had a party. Met some great people.

As we also said to another traveler who was with you on the tour, we love this positive attitude! Unfortunately some inconveniences that are out of our control can happen.

Nice wine tour of the Chianti Region
Deborah_M
, Sep 2021
Our guide Luca, with CAF Tour and Travel, led a nice & organized wine tour of the Chianti tour. The tour included stopping at 2 wineries with 3 tastings per winery & 2 stops in beautiful towns. Our tour was fortunate enough to be scheduled on a date that coordinated with a wine festival in the first town so Luca gave us additional time to explore the wine festival. Very light food was included. I recommend either eating lunch before the tour or using time in the first town to quickly eat at one of the many available restaurants verses shopping. We opted for the wine festival & shopping. Lots of cute shops both towns plus lots of beautiful scenery in between. Overall a nice tour with just the right amount of stops.

This trip is well thought out, giving you time for personal experiences and planned activity. The bus was a 20 passenger vehicle, allowing for a smaller group with an attentive tour guide - Luca was great!

Good trip and beautiful place
Jessica_B
, Sep 2020
We booked this tour last minute in Sep 2020 as a lot of the other tours were booked up. However, we were very pleased with the experience and thought it was good value for money. In the experience you get 2 wine tastings at vineyards (lovely scenery) and 2 visits to local towns where you can buy gelato, do shopping etc. The only thing I would change is the last visit - it seemed unnecessary as there wasn't a lot to do and by this point I think everyone was ready to head back to Florence. But otherwise it was a good trip and everyone was very good at wearing their masks etc
