Weekend Trip

San Gimignano, Chianti, and Montalcino Day Trip from Siena
It is a nice tour. But it was not a 11 hrs trip. If it is 11, we could have spend more hours in the town of Montalcino for example(to enjoy the stunning view). But it was a nice trip. We visited the places indicated. Alex, our driver as well, was so kind. He discussed briefly about the place before we walk around the towns. Too bad, we only have 1 hr on each towns. And mostly we spend the trip on the van. But I think it is worth it! You can try it if you do not have a car.

Small-Group Brunello di Montalcino Wine-Tasting Trip from Siena
We visited three unique vineyards that provided a great overview to the Montalcino region. The second vineyard is where we had lunch with the family running the vineyard. Really enjoyed getting to know the unique characteristics of Brunello!

We really enjoyed the tour. The guide was energetic, knowledgeable and a great driver. We felt very safe. The vineyard selection was super and the lunch at the winemakers home was an experience we will never forget...great food, wine and conversation. Thank you for a great experience.

We usually avoid group tours. Don't avoid this one, though. It was small, informative, and fun. Recommended highly

William was exceptional. He made us feel welcome the minute we stepped aboard. Great knowledge of the area and his country’s history. His personality was exuberant and infectious. All of the vineyards had something different to offer. We highly recommend William and the wine tour he represents. Regards, The Chouinard Family - Goffstown, NH

San Gimignano, Chianti, and Montalcino Day Trip from Siena
This tour was a blast! We had ample free time in the villages we stopped at, the lunch was wonderful and the wines sublime. Seven strangers became quick drinking buddies 😂. I thoroughly enjoyed the day with Daniel as our lovely guide. Highly recommend!!

Our group of 5 friends and 2 honeymooners was the perfect size. No rushing just leisurely enjoying beautiful scenery, good food and plenty of wine to sample. A perfect day I would highly recommend!
