BEFORE YOU DEPART
Transport by minibus, air-conditioned vehicle, expert tour leader (and wine and food expert) with you all day, different wine and/or food tastings, Extra Virgin Olive Oil tasting, Cheese & Salumi tasting and a Traditional Tuscan lunch.
Yes lunch is included in the price of all the tours.
Over the course of a the tour you will have the opportunity to taste a minimum of 6 (2 wineries) different wines.
We have arranged an itinerary so that you will never spend too long on the vehicle. The longest ride of the day is about an hour and a half to Montalcino or to Bolgheri.
Yes, we do. But please let us know about them at the moment of the reservation.
We run our tours with a number of people from 1 to 8 (or 16 in case we need to use two minibuses), rain or shine as we don’t want a little bit of rain to ruin the chance for you to experience the beautiful places we take you to. If in extreme circumstances we have to cancel a tour, we will refund the price paid for the tour.
We do not organise hotel pick-ups for difficulties with parking and scheduling, but our meeting points in Florence are very central and should be easy to get to. Many hotels are located within easy walking distance of them, otherwise a taxi (you could ask your hotel to book it for you) would be the fastest option, dropping you off right at our meeting point.
On request we can arrange a pick-up and drop-off service; the cost will be based on the distance from our meeting points.
If you would like to change the day of your tour, you may do so (depending on availability) up to 48 hours before the start of the tour with no extra fees.On request we can arrange a pick-up and drop-off service; the cost will be based on the distance from our meeting points.
We offer a full refund to any cancellations made up to seven (7) days before the date of the tour.
It is always a good idea to book in advance in order to avoid the disappointment of the tour being fully booked.
Max weight allowed on each motorcycle sidecar is 180 kilos, based on double occupancy (driver excluded). In case your “group weight” is higher you might choose the single occupancy option with an extra cost.
CHOOSING A TRIP
According to the number of persons on the tour we have the possibility to store luggage on the vehicle. In case we have a second minibus or a car for the luggage, but they have to be quoted separately.
With the tour being focused on wine we believe that is not appropriate for children of any age. The (suggested) minimum age is 18. With food tours (cheese, extra-virgin olive oil, Chianina beef steak, honey, etc…) we are going to visit amazing farms and get in touch with a lot of animals, so we think that it might be a wonderful experience also for kids of any age!
Our vehicle does not have a washroom. However the day is very well divided so that you are never too far from washrooms.
We suggest that you dress seasonally in comfortable to dressy-casual. Don’t forget sunglasses and suncream for sidecar rides in spring and summer! Better if you wear pants or shorts on the motorcycle…
