We went on a tour with Franco during our honeymoon in August. It was fantastic. We visited two small wineries (where we got to sample delicious Brunellos, cheese, olive oil, and honey) along with stops for gelato and a delicious lunch in a small hilltop town. This tour takes you off the beaten path, as we were the only tourists... More

Franco picked us up at our hotel at 9:30 and we, and 4 others, embarked on a delightful experience, visiting two small-production wineries in Montalcino and Montepulciano (with multiple-wine tastings and opportunities to purchase bottles), a state of the art olive oil extraction cooperative, and enjoying a multi-course lunch at Trattoria el Pozzo in a small hilltop village overlooking the...

Here's the thing: a wine tour, like travelling itself, is all about the experience. At the end of the day, my wife and I sat back and thought, wow, that was really cool. We are still savouring the experience (figuratively and literally, as we bought some wine and olive oil). First, discard your conventional notions of rushed groups of tourists... More

We recently visited Italy for 10 days, spending 3 in Tuscany. We took the all day wine tour with Franco (Brunello Montalcino region) and had him all to ourselves. He was very accomodating by taking us to a grocery store and bakery (not part of the tour). He is very knowledgeable about wines and obviously has good relationships with wineries... More

Francesco is amazing! This place is a top notch bike shop with full rental services. This was the only place I could find that offered day trips vs group or package.The owner even loaned us his personal GPS to help us! Amazing!

This was my second opportunity to spend a day with Franco and explore even further Tuscany and all it has to offer. I wanted to treat my friend Stephania to the Franco Fadda experience and he did not disappoint. From the pick-up in the morning to the end of the day, once again it was an experience I will never...

Franco never lets you down. Even though I've done his tour before, he found something new for us to do!!! Cooking class, Brunello tasting, sitting on the Piazza del Campo and just taking in the beauty of Siena. Mille Grazie, Franco for your professional and warm tour. LOVE IT!

If you want to avoid tourists and visit with the real people of Tuscany, from winemakers to restaurateurs , Franco is for you! His passion for his work, wine, and his country is unequalled. True value, and probably one of our best days. Can you imagine pleasing eight very diverse personalities? Not only did Franco excel....we will not soon forget... More

Franco is very knowledgeable and combine that with a great sense of humor made the wine tour very enjoyable. His passion for the food and wine of Tuscany was apparent and my wife and I had a great time. Would do it again when we visit Tuscany again.

We spent 12 days in Italy - Rome, Florence, Venice and much in-between. Without question our best day was our wine tour of Montalcino with Franco. The wine tasting, the history lessons, the overall education and the lunch was simply amazing. Franco took us around Montalcino as if we were life long friends. The tour and day exceeded all of...
