Scam of the trip
Renate_G
, Jul 2022
the so called "tour" consisted of a short walk to two wine cellars and vine tastings there. The wine tastings are actually available for free so I consider this "Tour" a scam and intend to claim money back. the tour guide just led us to the cellar and then step aside. this is definitely not worth your time and money.

Dear Renate, we're sorry to receive this review from you. As you can read in the description the tour was a walk with a guide and includes the guided visit of 2 of the 8 historical cellars of Montepulciano with wine tasting. The visit of the historical cellars of Montepulciano are free (not all) but you pay a tour and a guide for you for about 3 hours. We are always sincere with our guests: they can visit the cellars independently (without a guide) or choose a guided tour. You send us a refund request choosing the reason "the guide didn't show up": this is not true, because the guide was there, she accompanied you to the cellars and also made the guided visit of the centre. However we are sorry that you didn't like this experience, we always try to do our best and this tour is a must for our agency!

Great guide that knew a lot about the history of the wines and the city. It was great to learn about both and not just wander around. So much right under our feet.

Vanda was absolutely fantastic. She put everything in perspective for us. We learned a great deal and still had fun! The wineries were mysterious and amazing.

Molto interessante il giro nel centro storico di Montepulciano. Abbiamo visitato due cantine:de Ricci e Fanetti. Vini ottimi. Se l'ultima cantina del vostro tour fosse Fanetti, parcheggiate in fondo al paese, altrimenti bisogna risalire ,😉. Esperienza che consigliamo

Montepulciano's wine tour

Mi aspettavo più "emozione" visto come era stato descritto il tour, pensavo di vedere una cantina nella sua interezza, addentrarmi nei cunicoli di tufo o vedere magari le botti vuote ma "aperte". Degustazione ottima anche se abbiamo avuto poco tempo per fermarci nei luoghi principali della città e non ci sono state visite in chiese o musei.

Nulla di che!

Nulla di che visto quanto abbiamo pagato!!per lo stesso giro altri hanno speso di meno e con lo stesso risultato!...le cantine belle ma poca spiegazione del vino. La degustazione fatta sempre con lo stesso bicchiere non risalta i sapori del vino, diciamo che non sono stata invogliata a comprare nessuna bottiglia.

Super tour di Montepulciano e cantine

Il tour ha un rapporto qualità prezzo davvero ottimo; la nostra guida Antonella è stata eccezionale guidandoci per Montepulciano tra storia e vino a volontà. Consigliatissimo!
