Reviews for Chianti Wine, Food and Little Towns
This was the perfect day! The tour guides, especially the one that lead most of the tour, were all very friendly, easygoing, and outgoing. The horseback riding gave wonderful views of Tuscany, and they have horses to meet all riding levels. The couple that did the vespa tour got back about 20 minutes after the horseback tour did, so we got some fresh wine to pass the time! We ate the provided meal at a restaurant in a castle perched on a large hill. I got gnocchi, and it was delicious. We also got two bottles of wine between the four people that took the tour--oh geeze!. The wine tasting was also at the castle, and the wines were very enjoyable. Careful of the Grappa, though! Ultimately, the trip took up the majority of the day.
