After meeting your friendly local guide in central Florence, you'll hop into your comfortable vehicle for the day—a customized 4x4 Range Rover that'll help you reach places that other tours can't go. With a semi-private group of no more than 6 people, you'll set off into the Tuscan countryside on roads flanked by swaying cypress trees, passing by tiny villages and sprawling vineyards.

On this full day tour, you'll wander through the cellars of a Tuscan farmhouse, visit a 13th-century castle, sample Chianti wines and antipasti at a picnic in the hills, and enjoy a classic 3-course lunch made with ingredients from the farms of Tuscany (and more wine, of course.) It's an idyllic way to experience this famous wine region.

  • Explore Tuscany in a sturdy Range Rover Defender

Meet in Central Florence and Begin Your 4x4 Adventure

After meeting your fun local guide in Piazza Mentana, you'll depart Florence city center by private minivan and travel to the countryside in full comfort. Once in the hills, meet your professional driver guide and set off with a roar aboard your sturdy off-road vehicle—a Range Rover Defender that'll let you reach those off-the-beaten-track locations.

Enjoy a full day Tuscan countryside tour from Florence and travel along winding roads that capture the iconic rolling Tuscan hills you've been dreaming of seeing. In your driver's capable hands, your vehicle lets you get off the road and into the farmland, giving you a more intimate experience of Tuscany.

Chianti Farmhouse and Cellar Tour

Between Florence and Siena, you'll find one of the world's most important wine regions. Surrounded by the versatile Sangiovese grape, the Chianti region has been producing incredible red wines for centuries. As you ride past countless vineyards, a traditional farmhouse appears in the distance.

After you park, you can stroll through the vineyards that surround the property before exploring its underground cellar full of historic wines aging to perfection. The expert winemakers at the vineyard will explain the wine-making process up close, and you will also get to visit another winery, later on!

Picnic in the Hills with Antipasti and Wine

During your exploration of the countryside, you'll come across a beautiful grove overlooking the lush farmland. Here your guide will lay out a wonderful spread of antipasti (Italian starters) and local Chianti wines. Sit back as you take in the Tuscan sun and breeze for a picturesque picnic in the country.

Classic 3-Course Tuscan Lunch

You'll continue into the heart of Tuscany's glorious landscape before stopping for a delicious local lunch. Served over three courses, this lunch showcases some of the traditional recipes and incredible fresh ingredients that Tuscany is famous for. And there will be wine, of course! Salute!

Medieval Castles and Hilltop Villages

After lunch, continue the journey through Tuscany, passing by villages and seeing local life unfold before your eyes. This afternoon you'll also visit a magnificent castle and abbey that dates back to the 13th century, and your guide will describe stories of the monks and lords that influenced the area's history.

As your Tuscan adventure draws to a close, you'll be driven back to central Florence in time to enjoy your evening in the city.

We had the best time being driven around Tuscany. We loved the two wineries we visited - delicious wine, snacks and fun little tours. The picnic lunch was casual and tasty. We were with two other people and it was fun getting to know them. It was a little cramped in the back seat with 3 of us - so if you are a larger person you should ask about the type of vehicle and number of passengers. Our guide was an excellent driver and very friendly. It was a day we will always treasure.

One of the highlights of our 10 day stay in Tuscany. Nathan was our driver/guide and he drove to two vineyards while entertaining us with anecdotes and history of the region. Highly recommended and we will spread the word!

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

You won't need much today, just comfortable shoes, a camera, and a water bottle. Depending on the weather, you'll also want to bring sunscreen and perhaps a light jacket.

Can I bring my child and why is it full price?

You can and they will be provided with soft drinks instead of wine. Since this trip includes transportation, all passengers on the tour must be seated for safety and legal reasons. That means a young child takes up the same space as a youth or adult. For peace of mind, we can bring a car seat for children who need one, so please let us know in the comment box on the order confirmation page.  

Is this tour private?

If your group size is 6, then yes! Otherwise you may have some fellow wine-loving travelers to join you. If you're looking for a fully private tour, check out our Private Wine day in the Chianti Hills.

What if I'm vegetarian, vegan, or have special dietary requirements?

Please contact us after booking to let us know your requirements. We’ll work with our partners to accommodate your needs.
