My husband and I had such a lovely day at the Chianti half-day tour! Our guide Giulia was not only a pro on wine in general, but also a delightful company and a great driver as well. We visited two wineries and had lots of food and wine, specially on the second one (Il Bacio), where we had the opportunity to have lunch with the owner and learn a lot about their routine, life and history. Overall it was an amazing experience. I strongly recommend anyone visiting Firenze to go on this tour and meet the amazing italian countryside.
We had an amazing time with Andrea, definitely recommend this wine tour!
