Pamela and Giovanni were amazing!!!!
This was by far the best tour of the 6 we took with the Roman Guy. By luck, we were the only two on the tour and they didn't cancel! Way to go Roman Guy! Our guide Pamela met us early, so we were able to start the tour just a bit early. The incredible knowledge that both Pamela and Giovanni shared is something we will never forget. From the Medici dynasty to the amazing food and wine facts, they knew everything. Fun Fact: French Onion Soup--not French! Italian! Catarina Medici brought it to France along with the fork! The wine experience made us feel like we were VIPs. San Gimignano was an beautiful ancient town, where everyone was friendly and kind! What an incredible experience! Don't miss this one folks!
Delicious Wine and Food
This tour was amazing and is the perfect way to get out of the busy city and see the countryside. The wine tasting was spectacular Our guide explained in great detail the processes involved in creating the wines that we all had the privilege to enjoy. The food was also delicious. Incredible experience, I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence.
Getting to wine taste through Tuscany was an amazing experience that I will never forget! I loved every second and trying all of the different wines was my favorite part of my whole vacation!
