Do you combine people to share the tour?
All our tours are private, luxurious, and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.
Which wineries will we visit?
We do not have just one set of wineries that we visit, as there are so many great ones! With so many wonderful wineries in this area, there is no reason to put on a “one size fits all” wine tour. We customize the day’s tour based on several factors, some of which include, locations of pick-ups, guest wine preferences and available wineries for the day (as they all have different days of operation and special event scheduling).
Are tastings included in your private Chianti Tuscany day trip?
Tastings are NOT included in the price of this tour. Each touring experience is unique which is why our private tours are personalized and not standard tours so that you try the food and wine YOU crave. Therefore, tastings, meals and drinks are EXTRA and are set by the wineries. Prices will depend on your choice. Food and wine are some of the best aspects of Tuscany and we do not want to limit your options. YOU are free to decide how much and what you want to try and pay on the spot for what you prefer to eat and drink.
