Half Day trip to Tuscan with wine-tasting (twice) and lunch!
Anne_R

My two friends and I had a most wonderful half-day trip! Everything was easy and relaxed, there was no stress, from the online booking onwards. All the staff were fantastic, especially the lovely guide on our bus, Daniel, and we had the best time. I'd never booked an organised tour before, but this was great. We booked only the day before, we didn't know what to expect, but this trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you guys xxx

This was a great way to see Tuscany and experience beautiful scenery in the comfort of an airconditioned bus. Our tour guide and bus driver were excellent. The sommeliers at each winery were extremely knowledgeable. Best of all... the wines were superb!

Amazing wine tour I would highly recommend! It’s worth paying slightly more and having less people! I think some groups are up to around 50 people and we had about 22 - 25 which was perfect! It was easy to find the meeting spot, the winery’s were great and the provided lots of snacks as well.

My partner and I (late 20s) had such an amazing time. I can’t recommend this wine tour enough. We signed up for the 9 am tour as the afternoon one was fully booked, but it ended up being a great time to go as we still had the whole day ahead of us. Everything was incredible from the history lesson on the bus to the delicious wines/food to the lovely winery and tour staff. We also had a chance to make friends with the other tourists. Definitely worth every penny

Had a great afternoon with our family tasting wines at two vineyards. Bus was comfortable and a great break from the oppressive heat and all the walking. Daniele was a wonderful guide with lots of fun and interesting information about wine and Tuscany.

Our tour guide was great. The wineries were beautiful. I appreciated the details behind the development of the wines, how to enjoy each, and best pairings. Makes me wish I can own a winery in Tuscany.

Fun but more for the less active person

It was good the wines were nice and the olive oils tasted great. It was nice to see a bit of how they make the wines, there could have been more food with the wines.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Dear Taylor_H, we are sorry to read your feedback, although this was a wine experience and you mention you tasted nice wines and great olive oils at the family-owned wineries. You visited their cellar and learned about the local wine making process. The food at the second winery you visited was produced by them, and all our past clients highly valued the opportunity to taste their genuine and quality products. Honestly, we don’t understand what you mean with ‘less active’, as you booked a tour to 2 wineries in Chianti and as you write, this is exactly the experience we provided. We remain at complete disposal, all the very best from Prestige Rent staff

This tour was so great and even better than expected! Finding the bus was super easy and the ride out to Tuscany was pleasant, our tour guide was very nice and communicated timing at the wineries with us very effectively. We did the morning tour and although it may seem early to drink wine, it was such a good idea and we really enjoyed it. The tour of the first winery was very informative, along with the explanation of how to properly do a wine tasting, and the grounds were so beautiful to take in (great picture taking!). We sampled four wines at the first location that were paired with bread and cheese, which included amazing balsamic vinegar and olive oil, all of which was for sale or could be shipped directly to your home. The second location was a short drive away and included another four wines to taste, but were different varieties than the first winery so you never felt overwhelmed by one kind of wine and got to sample everything. The second winery had an amazing charcuterie board with meats like salami and prosciutto, cheese, and bread with and without truffle oil. The grounds were great and the winery tour host was funny as well. The atmosphere of the big group and our individual table was so great and really made the experience all the much better. A must do!

Best day in Florence!
Nadine_K
, Aug 2022
This tour was the best day of our trip to Florence! It was so relaxing to tour the wineries and try a bunch of delicious wines, especially since the first half of our Italy trip was pretty exhausting. The Chianti region is gorgeous and the people we met were kind and welcoming. Valentina was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, and Max did an amazing job driving our bus around roads that did not look easy to navigate. I highly, highly recommend this tour!
