We spent 9 hours with Guillermo and 5 other travelers visiting three small Brunello wineries. Guillermo was fantastic! He was enthusiastic, talkative, knowledgeable, and fun. It felt like spending the day with a friend, and he was eager to answer all our questions about wine, food, history, and Italy in general. Highlight for us was a marvelous homemade lunch with winemaker Simone and Lucia in their home. Lucia served us Antipasta, pici al ragu, and a delicious just baked apple cake while they served us their 2 brunello red wines and a sparkling rose. It was a wonderfully relaxed lunch. We were able to order wines to be shipped to the US (about 250$ for 6 bottles, shipping included). I highly recommend this tour to see the Tuscan countryside and learn about wine.

I had a wonderful time touring Montalcino with Mattia. He was an all-around expert who had over two decades of wine-making experience himself, and he led us to several different wineries over the course of the day, all while explaining the region and the wine. As a wine novice, I appreciated his "good wine is the wine you like" attitude.

The value for this tour is incredible. Not only do you get an expert tour guide who drives you everywhere, you see multiple famous Montalcino sites and have about 10 glasses of high-quality wine over the course of the day. That's not even mentioning the incredible homemade lunch we had as well.

I can't recommend this enough. Everyone was so welcoming and kind, and when it got chilly, Mattia even lent me his own jacket! This is an incredible way to experience the region and its famous wine.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Georgia, was personable and very knowledgeable. We visited three Tuscan wineries. They were all small family run wineries. The small size of the group made for a very intimate tasting and we were able to spend time talking to the wine makers. We also enjoyed a fantastic lunch at a Tuscan farmhouse, accompanied by wines made by the owner. Trip is highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys wine. Our only problem was that it rained all day.

The tour lasted 1 full day and during which we visited 3 different vineyards, each one with its own peculiarities, the driver was very passionate and informative and his personal relationship with thinner of the 3 vineyards made the experience even more enjoyable. We had lunch with one of the wine producing families and that was amazing! We tasted 4 types of wine in each property and there is the chance to buy or get bottles shipped everywhere with very advantageous prices compared to the normal distribution. Everybody was very happy and the group of 5 people was just the perfect size. Expect amazing landscapes, perfect wine and incredible people!!!

We could not thank William(Guglielmo) enough for a fantastic trip in Siena and Montalcino. This trip was worth every minute! William was fluent and knowledgeable about the Tuscany region and kept us entertained throughout the day. My husband who doesn't drink wine was utterly impressed by every winery we went and what they could offer. All 3 wineries were amazing and they were small producers which we really appreciated. We learned a lot and we met some fantastic people in our group which made our day even better. I would 100% recommend this trip for those who would love to learn about one of the top notch wines in Italy... if not the best.

We had a lovely, personalized tour with William, who spoke excellent English and made brilliant historical connections.
Our first stop offered an education in organic and sustainable cultivation of the grapes as well as the fermentation process.

Our second stop, at the family home of Simone and Lucia, for a home cooked lunch and lively chitchat with the owners, have us an emotional bond to the entrepreneurial spirit, stubbornness, and desire to develop new ways of managing a winery and creating experiences.

Our third stop was an education in the nuances of vintage variations, corks, bottling processes, and a surprise success of a wine that almost wasn’t.

In between the wineries, William brought us to a monastic abbey where we found an herbal pharmacy similar to that which Romeo obtained his deadly dram.

We finished the day in a field of sunflowers.

William was funny, knowledgeable, and caring of our comfort. He was a safe driver, and the travel van was clean and comfortable with a good air conditioner, which was important on our 96 degree day.

I highly recommend William and this tour.

This was one of the best regional tours we’ve ever been on. The tour was very well organized and our guide Daniele has a background in wine, so he knows the subject matter and is extremely passionate about. We went to 3 small wineries two of which were biodynamic. They wines were delicious, and the explanations at the wineries of their processes in the vineyard and cellar very detailed. We had lunch at the 2nd winery which consisted of a starter of cold cuts, cheese and a bruschetta as well, followed by pasta with a ragu which was delicious and the desert as well. You can also buy wines and they pricing was very reasonable — they had basic wines from around 15 - 20 euros and on up for the finer wines, but all budgets were covered. It was a full day affair, but between the guide, good company and good wines, one of the best days of our trip.

We had the best time on this tour of beautiful Montalcino. Our guide was incredibly informative and he spoke about the wine with passion and knowledge. The tour consists of 3 tastings at beautiful wineries (with a lovey hearty lunch at one), visit to a beautiful church, and time to explore the town. The price is well worth the experience. We would love to take other tours with the same guide the next time we’re in Italy!

Wonderful full-day tour from Siena to Montalcino, including visits to the village, a nearby abbey, and three very different wineries. We received an extremely informative, hands-on tour of a very small winery (Giacomo was fantastic), enjoyed a fantastic lunch at a second, and visited a new multi-million dollar wine cellar at a third, and we enjoyed tastings of Brunella di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino (among our nine total tastings) at each of the three wineries. Best of all was our guide Daniele. Not only is he very knowledgeable of the region and its wines, but he demonstrated an excellent rapport with the hosts at each of our stops and he was a most pleasant person with whom to spend the day. There were a total of five guests on our tour, and I felt comfortable relative to sanitary/safety protocols.

This was a fabulous day out in the Tuscan countryside. Our guide Guglielmo was fantastic. Not only did he bring us to 3 great wineries but he had tons of historical info about the region and the Italian/Tuscan people. We had a brilliant lunch outside in the sun with perfectly paired wine. We also made a brief stop at a quaint old town, Montalcino and a historic Abbey. Would highly recommend!
