Highly recommend you take this when visiting Florence to see the most beautiful areas of the Chianti Region you otherwise could not. Lavi was the best tour guide we had on our whole trip to Italy and made the day so much fun! She is very knowledgeable about wine and we learned a lot. Romelu did a great job driving those streets as well!

This was a fantastic option if you are short on time and want to see a bit of Tuscany and experience some fabulous food and wine. Alex is a great host and catered to everyone. Although the faulty air conditioning in the truck nearly turned me into a raisin, the quality of the tour more than made up for this. Great quality wines from small produces, excellent food and amazing locations. Worth every penny.

10/10 recommend this tour! Gloria and Romolo (I hope I spelled that right) were great guides for the day. Gloria is so knowledgeable about all things wine, olive oil, and Florence and Tuscany in general. All three of the wineries we visited were beautiful and the staff was very helpful. The lunch was delicious and my wife and I really enjoyed eating family style with all the other people on the tour. This wasn’t just a wine tasting. We got to see some really beautiful villas, vineyards, and gardens. The whole experience felt perfectly curated. Something I really appreciated was that we were never on the bus for too long. 30-40 minutes at most. Overall really great tour and a rather inexpensive way to experience the Tuscan countryside compared to staying in Tuscany, and getting around on your own.

Wonderful day in the countryside

Gloria and Romola were awesome. This was our first event in Italy, but we’ve been on a couple dozen wine tours before — this was one of the best. The pacing, the scenery, the narrative, and of course the food and wine were all excellent! I’d book another Walkabout tour in a heartbeat.

This tour was amazing! Alex was our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable. We visited 3 wineries total and had lunch at one of them. The lunch was one of our favorite meals we had the whole trip. Had samples of wine, cheese, and olive oil. The bus was so neat too. highly recommend this tour!
