The tour was very nice, our tour guide was on time and explained some nice facts about the Chianti region and wines on the way. We visited beautiful privately owned Castello di Brolio and winery and then a winery in Lornano. It's a nice tour and we recommend it because it not long and starts in the afternoon at 2pm.

Experience was good , possibly the 1st stop for wine tasting may have been more interesting if we had have been told about the types of wine more it was a bit light on info . The drivers were great and the stops at the castle and village also the last stop was really good and I bought some wine also

This tour was a lot of backroads driving and not much time at the castles. You don’t actually tour the castles, you can walk around them. The view was amazing and the countryside, though a few of us were car sick from the high speed country roads between towns. The guide is really just a driver. He seems to know the area well, but didn’t offer a lot of information as we drove.
