Maurizio was great to deal with in organising. Paolo looked after us all day and was a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommended to go with these guys

My husband stumbled upon Golden Tours while researching vineyard tours for our honeymoon. The price was right and we had personal tastings and tours everywhere we went. Of course, you can add a bigger group to cut the cost, but it will be a private tasting and tour for your group!

We did 2 separate wine tours with Golden Travel. Both times our driver was Emiliano, so technically this will be 2 reviews.

The first day was a full day split between Montalcino and Montepulciano. Naturally, the wines were incredible and the vineyards selected were gorgeous. The company tries to pick vineyards that are lesser known but have plenty of accolades. Emiliano was prompt in picking us up and very easy going. He was a great driver whom we felt safe with, even on the windy narrow mountain roads! We went to 2 vineyards in Montalcino and 1 in Montepulciano. We had to miss the 2nd Montepulciano vineyard because the 1st vineyard took forever, but that is not the company’s fault. Besides, the wine was delicious and we ordered some to be shipped home.

The second day was a half day in Tuscany and it was INCREDIBLE! We saw 3 vineyards, and each was better than the next. Our final tasting we ended up hanging out a little longer since we were having so much fun. Again, Emiliano was prompt in picking us up and a safe driver.

Emiliano was very accommodating and laid back. He informed us that the way we handle the trips was up to us. If we wanted to spend more time at a certain vineyard, that was our choice (just know it will cut into future time), or you can add time for a very reasonable price as you go.

Additionally, we contemplated switching out Montepulciano for Siena, and both Emiliano and the company were accommodating, as long as we stayed within our time frame it didn’t matter what we did.

We would HIGHLY recommend golden travel in the future and will use them again when we return to Tuscany

Two days private touring in Tuscany -- Sansepolcro/Monterchi and Montepulciano/Pienza. Driver Emiliano and guides Serena Ricchi and Laura Bonechi were first rate -- knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. Recommend them highly.

My wife and I wanted to visit a few of the smaller towns of Tuscany while visiting Florence. While other companies gave us a hard time about where we wanted to go and what days we were limited to book, Tuscany Tour was extremely accomodating! Maurizio responded to our request-email promptly and explained everything clearly.
Our driver was Emiliano. He picked us up directly from our hotel and took us to a few wineries in Montalcino and Montepulciano. He was extremely helpful in pointing out important facts of the region and keeping us entertained while also remaining professional. He was also very flexible when we opted to alter parts of our tour. We highly recommend requesting him as your driver for your future wine tour!!
Overall, this private wine tour was exactly the Tuscany wine experience one should have on their Italian vacation!!
Graziemille Emiliano and Tuscany Tours!
