This was a lot of fun. I don't drink alcohol but I really enjoyed the off road experience in the vineyards and the lunch was authentic Italian and delicious. Getting in and out of the 4x4 was hard. I am short and I have just had my knee replaced but everyone helped me. Our guide Gloria was terrific and our driver was the best. Well worth the money.

This tour was fantastic Martina our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable she made sure everyone could hear and understand all instructions. The wineries we visited were amazing and so was the food and wine. Highly recommend. BUT it’s not a small group in a small vehicle is we believed it to be, its a bus of around 26.

The Taste of Chianti day trip through Walkabout was amazing and a highlight of our stay in Florence. Gloria was an incredible tour guide and not only knowledgeable about the area but also wine and olive oil. She also had a great sense of humor. On paper it was a long day trip, but it is broken up by several stops and Gloria provided narration for much of it but also allowed for person time to rest. Romolo drove the Beast (I think of it as the big green machine), it is a huge 4 wheel drive truck with a bus cab on the back, and very comfortable inside. Romolo maneuvered it on narrow back roads that didn’t seem possible to fit our vehicle. The food was amazing and the wine was great! I would definitely take another tour by Walkabout and highly recommend them to others.
