This tour was awesome! I was traveling alone so it was nice to be able to sit down with a small group there were only three others attending and enjoy great wine. Good value for money and just an overall great Florence experience!

This was one of our absolute favorite parts of our entire trip. The lovely owner of La Divina Enoteca was both congenial and knowledgable, and we learned quite a bit and enjoyed ourselves immensely! Everything was absolutely delicious from the wines, to the cheeses, and the conversation - thank you for an incredible experience - one which we won't ever forget!

I enjoyed this experience and learned some new things about local wine and cheese. The presenter was very knowledgeable and approachable, and the setting was conducive. It was a very small group the day I went, so it was quite personal - I think the group size is always kept low, so I'm sure it would be fine. It was not cheap for a short session, but it was a good experience.

I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Florence, that may not have time to make it out to the any of the wineries. This was a great way to experience some of the local wines while staying right in the city! It is also a beautiful thing that all of the wines that you taste on this are very delicious and affordable if you wanted to purchase at the end of the tour.
