Full description

Meet your guide in Florence city center then be escorted by car to the riding center in the Southern Chianti hills, which is a 30-minute drive. During the drive, some details about the Tuscany landscape and the local wine and food economy will be explained by the guide. You are free to ask for more information about what you see along the road. Upon arrival at the horse court, you will be invited to sign the insurance forms or leave your personal data for insurance purposes. Helmets and possibly chaps and gloves will be lent to you. Then get on the saddle of an experienced, quiet, and reliable horse. 

The ride outward will be preceded by the adjustment of the stirrups, straps, and reins and a short basic horseback riding lesson in the outdoor or indoor arena. One or two guides will escort you on a sweetly hilly country trail among vineyards and olive groves. Along the path, your horse companion will allow you to take unforgettable pictures of the breathtaking landscape that you will ride through.  Upon returning to the riding center, you will be escorted by car to a historic and scenic Tuscan estate for the wine tour. This includes a guided visit of the estate, its ancient cellars, and the vinsantaia. You will be served a light lunch with three award-winning wines and a typical Florence pasta dish.

This trip was amazing!!!! So personal which was great for our honeymoon trip. Simona is THE BEST! She was so kind and came to pick us up after the taxi strike delayed us getting to the meeting point. She was a fabulous tour guide throughout Tuscany, and we really enjoyed it. The horseback riding was so incredible! You ride through olive and grape fields and it’s truly spectacular. The winery visit was MAGICAL. Martina did a fabulous job giving the history of the area, and it was so magical.

Uns hat die Tour mit Simona sehr gut gefallen. Wir wollten dem Trubel der Stadt entkommen und kamen dabei definitiv auf unsere Kosten. So konnten wir die schöne Aussicht der Toskana auf dem Pferderücken genießen. Die Mitarbeiter*innen und Pferde waren sehr umgänglich, sodass wir uns auch ohne bzw. mit wenig Reiterfahrung sehr sicher und gut aufgehoben gefühlt haben. Die anschließende Tour durch das ca. 40 min entfernte wunderschöne Gelände der Villa mit Weinkeller war eine tolle kulturelle Abwechslung und sicherlich ein Highlight für jede*n Weinliebhaber*in. Uns wurden verschiedene dort hergestellte Weine zu einem leckeren Mittagessen serviert und wir konnten viele Informationen über die Weinproduktion und die umliegende Gegend mitnehmen. Die gesamte Tour wurde auf englisch und italienische begleitet, obwohl Simona sogar recht gut Deutsch spricht. Sie sorgte für den Transport zwischen den Locations und ermöglicht einem, durch ihrer kommunikative und verlässliche Art einen tollen Trip.
