We had a group of 4. Giancarlo was fantastic and brought us to wonderful wineries. At the end of the day we all felt that it was excellent value and that our experience was custom created to make our Tuscany wine tasting very special.

Beautiful views of Florence and a must see at sunset with an aperitif and dinner to follow. Fiesole is a lovely little town to visit if you want to move out of the centre of Florence for the day.
