Toscan dream tour!
Rebecca_M
, Jul 2021
We enjoyed this tour tremendously! Daniele put together a great wine tasting experience and cultural adventure into Tuscany. Our guide Giovanni was the perfect choice due to his family ties in the region. He shared his life long knowledge of the families, culture and traditions. His narration while travelling was fascinating and interesting. He also was a safe, conscience and good driver with a lot of patience. He took us first to San Gimignano. He gave us a brief history of the city and explained the significance of the towers. Then we did an incredibly gorgeous wine tasting nearby and went on to Volterra, the city of Alabaster. The whole tour accompanied by the wonderful guide Giovanni was just stunning. This is really the best way to experience the Toscan landscape and two famous villages plus a wine tasting in one day! Highly recommended!

We had an amazing time with Marco! He picked us up at the port where our cruise ship came in and from the start was very friendly and informative. Our drive through the Tuscan countryside was nothing short of spectacular; great views everywhere you looked. We stopped at a small coffee shop on the way to the winery, just to get out and appreciate the views (and have an espresso, of course). When we were ready, Marco took us to the winery where we sampled about 10 different wines, their olive oils, and a small snack plate (sausage slices, bread, and a small salad). I think we were at the winery for around an hour or hour and a half, which was just about perfect; we didn't feel rushed at all. When we were ready to leave, Marco drove us to San Gimignano where he showed us around and then let us wander the town for 90 minutes or so. Then off to Volterra for the same pattern. On the way back to our cruise ship, Marco answered all of our questions about the area and we had a nice conversation. Overall, I can't recommend this highly enough. Marco was just about the best tour guide we could have asked for, the countryside was outstanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the winery and in both towns. We'd definitely do this again!

Marco our driver/guide was courteous and a good driver. We did three stop. Each of them was precious, while driving and passing some special area , we were made aware. The winery was excellent with a little tour prior the testing, the surrounding was postal card all around. The visit after of 2 UNESCO sites was priceless, Sam Gimignano and Volterra, ouch....

This was probably our favorite tour out of 14 cities in 21 days! The wine tasting was incredible and taking us to San Gamigano was great! But the best part was our tour guide Stefania! What a lovely woman and so informative! Request her as your guide and you will not regret it! Don’t miss this tour to Tuscany as well worth the price plus some.

I thought I might regret missing the leaning tower of pisa to do this excursion. I'm so glad We did this instead.The driver Francesco was amazing. The winery is unforgettable and Volterra is a place you must see. I would highly recommend this tour. It was so convenient being picked up from the cruise terminal also.

My husband and I took this tour when our cruise ship stopped in Livorno for the day. The weather was very windy causing our ship to be over 2 hours late docking, but our tour guide Francesco waited at the port for us and rearranged the tour so that we could enjoy each stop in a slightly different order, making sure we had lunch at an appropriate time. Francesco was incredibly knowledgable and very funny. He brought us to Volterra and San Gimignano, two beautiful mid-evil cities and a wonderful vineyard where we met many of the family members who own and work there. We enjoyed a generous tasting of 12 wines and ate 4 courses - meat and cheese, Grandmama's soup and lasagna, and biscotti for dessert. This excursion is well worth it and absolutely one of our favorite highlights from our Mediteranean cruise. Thanks, Francesco!

Gorgeous scenic tour with a wine tasting

We booked this trip for our cruise stop in Livorno, a very industrial port. Our guide Francesco was extremely knowledgeable about the region and even made a stop to show us the beautiful view from Toscana Resort Castelfalfi. After that viewing we continued on to Fattoria Poggio Alloro for our tour of the winery and tasting. Gorgeous countryside and a nice sampling of cheese and meats with our wine samples. From there we went to Volterra and San Gimignano and returned to our ship around 1730 hours. Our day started at 0830 and we spent enough time at all stops to appreciate the towns historical sights, sampling, and shopping. There were 6 on our tour and our guide was a very good driver. I would definitely recommend this tour.

One of the highlights of our 2-week trip! Francesco did a great job - very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Two other couples in our group. We all enjoyed the wine tasting so much that we laughed and said we wished we do another one. He quickly made a call and arranged another winery reservation and still managed to show us the rest of the tour too with a lot of very interesting insights. The entire countryside is stunning. We ordered a couple of cases to ship home and they showed up the week after we returned.

The tour was cancelled on me less than a week out. I was severely disappointed in the way it was handled.When planning our trip, we made many plans that had to fit together. They are only in it for the money and don't care about the people.

It states that if we do not reach the minimum number to run the tour it will be cancelled . We gave you 10 days headsup ! You cannot insult us in this way !!!

We started dock side in a nice Mercedes Van. Our driver Francesco was wonderful. He took us to a beautiful resort for coffee and photos. The on to a family owned (300 years) vineyard. We enjoyed that so much we stayed a little longer than planned. Our wonderful driver continued our tour on to San Gimignano on his time!!! He also didn’t want us to miss our last stop in Volterra so we went there for a quick stop and it was charming! Absolutely a wonderful day! We were some of Francesco’s first English clients and he did a great job!

My husband and I booked the San Gimignano and Voterra Wine Tasting Tour in August 2018. We were on a Norwegian Cruise docking in Livorno. Our driver and guide, Francesco, working under DriverinRome, was on time, informative, and experienced. He told us this was his first time doing a tour in English and we found him to be very fluent and charming. His driving was very comfortable and in control. We highly recommend him to others for a great experience in Italy. The tour itself was amazing. We immensely enjoyed both of these medieval cities. They were very charming. We also toured a farm where we enjoyed sitting on a patio, tasting a variety of wines with cheese and prosciutto. and looking at San Gimignano in the distance. It was incredibly picturesque and pleasant. This was one of our favorite excursions from multiple trips to the Mediterranean, Thank you so much to Francesco for his care and delightful personality.

We did back to back cruises on Azamara for a total of 18 days - and I can honestly say this was a highlight of the entire trip. Beautiful drive through the countryside to a winery that also included a tour of the working farm. The food and tasting were great but the view from the outdoor tasting area was as good as it can get - you are on top of a hill looking over vineyards, and a few kilometers away is the next hill with San Gimignano and its iconic towers. We then visited San Gimignano and then on to Volterra. We had been to Volterra before on our own and loved its local feel but this tour made us appreciate it even more. Our fantastic guide was born and raised in Volterra. She showed us her high school and pointed out things only a local would know. She also knew the head of the local alabaster factory and we took a tour there with a personal demonstration on how they make a vase out of a block of alabaster. A fantastic day at a fantastic value.

We had the best day of all with Francesco in our 6 week European holiday. His shore excursion of Tuscany included the beautiful towns of San Gimignano and Volterra. The winery tour with lunch overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside was a highlight. Francesco is a very safe driver and was waiting in his immaculate car when we docked. His superb singing voice completed the day. Grazie Francesco

Tour of Tuscany with a Wine Tasting

We had an amazing time on this almost 9 hour tour. The local company in Tuscany was "DriverInRome" and Laura was our tour guide. Went to many small old towns and the Wine Tasting was at a farm winery. The wine and lunch was wonderful. They all did an excellent job and would use them again. Very professional and worth every penny. Loved it !!
