Excellent and efficient tour of Chianti
Natalia_B
, Jul 2021
This was one of our favorite parts of our 10-day trip to Italy. Stefano was an excellent driver - funny, engaging, and framed our visits to the two vineyards well. It's one of the only tours available that's only 4.5 hours long. This fit well into our schedules, and we still felt like we got to see two very different vineyards at a relaxed pace. The views are to die for, as others wrote. A previous reviewer wrote that the wine pours are generous but the snacks are scarce - this was not our experience! The food was plentiful (and tasty!) at the second vineyard, and we really appreciated their accommodating that we are vegetarians. Wine pours were indeed very plentiful, more like full glasses of wine rather than tastings, but given that we didn't have to drive, we thought this was a good thing! Our only regret is that we did not go on this tour earlier in our stay in Italy. Our wine selection at restaurants improved notably after we learned more about how to select Italian wines!

Dear Natalia and thank you very much for your detailed review and excellent words. Hear what we are doing is appreciated by our customers, is a big joy. Thank you also to give us the chance to clarify the question of the previous reviewer, because it could be helpful for future readers: normally our clients are more than happy with the quantity of wine tasted at the 2 wineries and the snacks offered at the second one, and that’s why this tour has been also rated #1, in the Top 10 Wine Tours & Tasting Experiences in the World, by the TripAdvisor Travelers; obviously and as clearly specified on the tour info, “Tasting of wines and olive oil at the second winery paired with local Tuscan specialties (cheese, salami, cured ham and bruschetta”, we are talking about snacks and not a ten-course meal. That being said, we always pay close attention and consideration to all the feedback received, to continue to improve (if necessary), in order to offer our customers, the best possible experiences, and that's why we do thank you very much you and all our past clients for taking the time to share their comments with us and the community. We hope to see you again soon. Best regards Prestige Rent staff
