    What a wonderful day! Our excellent guide, Lele, drove us to two contrasting vineyards just a short distance through the lovely Tuscan countryside around Lucca. He shared his local knowledge of Lucca, giving us a brief overview of its history and importance as a centre for silk trade. We were greeted warmly at both of the vineyards by the owners who talked to us about their wine production, before we sampled some of the wines, accompanied by delicious food. The atmosphere was relaxed and unhurried. Above all, we could see their pride and joy of sharing with others. Highly recommend this tour.

    It felt like just spending the day with friends
    Tammy_L, Apr 2024
    Everything! The guide and wine staff were personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. It felt like we were just spending the day with friends. The views were gorgeous and the wineries were interesting and had great wine.
    Tomaso was Great
    H_S, Nov 2023
    Tomaso was a great guide — knowledgeable about local grapes and wines and people. Our drive was relaxing and the food at Tenuto Mareli was superb.

    Grazie mille!
    Best tour ever!
    Jeanne_N, Nov 2023
    This was one of the best tour we've ever taken. Raphaelle was our guide, but we met up with Tommaso and his group at the first winery. Both young men were incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the vineyards, wines, Lucca and the surrounding area. Both vineyards were interesting, and the "light lunch" at the second one was amazing. We tasted some great wines, learned so much, never felt rushed, and totally enjoyed the whole trip. Thank you for a memorable experience!

    Jeanne, you were a perfect company... thank you ;)
    Excellent Tour
    Margaret_S, Nov 2023
    We had a private tour with Thomas. He was so knowledgeable and struck the right balance of giving us a tour and giving us privacy to enjoy the vineyards. It was a lovely way to spend our honeymoon in Tuscany.

    The first winery we visited was a classic and exactly what we were looking for. Our quite, Rhafeal was amazing! His knowledge of the wine industry was excellent and he gave us wonderful insight into how things worked. On top of that he was charismatic and fun to be with. I’m

    Bill_T, Oct 2023
    The first one was really great the second one seemed a little unorganized not really giving 100% It seemed a little rough inside too much like a garage
    Response from Host, Oct 2023
    Ciao Bill! Thanks for the feedback. These are the days of the harvest, we like to make you see the authenticity so during this time of the year the winemaker works a lot in the cellar. We like to take the risk to make you see something that is true :)
    Great wine tour

    Tommaso our guide was superb and very knowledgeable. We went to two estates and they were both beautiful

    A very fun and informative experience! Our driver, Marco, was very polite. We enjoyed the views from the countryside where we visited two wonderful wineries! We learned so much about the process of wine making…
    Would go again.
    John_C, Sep 2023
    What a fun tour. Both wineries were interesting and had good wines. Plus all the people were nice and interesting with good stories about the wines. I highly recommend it for a good time close to Lucca. Our tour guide, Marco, was also very good.
    Tommaso and Raphaelle...
    Alexander_L, Sep 2023
    Tommaso and Raphaelle were excellent and knowledgeable guides. They gave us what seemed to be a very authentic and relaxed experience. Would highly recommend.

    Ciao Alex! Thank you from both of us :)
    A genuine experience that we loved!
    Murali_I, Sep 2023
    Tomasso was a terrific guide, host and driver. We had a great time on the tour, during we visited two very interesting vineyards and met the hardworking, dedicated and committed owners and team members of the vineyards. We were able to get a deeper appreciation for what it takes to be a truly organic farmer in Italy, and the love and care that goes into the wine production process. The whole experience was worth every penny/cent we spent. We would happily recommend Tomasso and AutoServizi DB to anyone who is looking for a true Tuscan countryside vineyard experience. Viator was very easy to do business with. When we had to change our tour date a week before we arrived in Lucca, it was as easy as 1-2-3. 😊 Thank you, Tomasso, for a great tour on a nice, sunny, breezy Italian day. All the best!

    Ciao Murali! It was great to know you and your wife. Thanks again!
    Great Experience!
    Andrea_J, Aug 2023
    Our tour guide was Tommaso. He was not only knowledgeable about the history of Lucca but also very knowledgeable about the wine and wineries he brought us to. He was kind, friendly and professional. If you want to see and learn about an authentic Lucca winery, take this tour with Tommaso.

    Andrea what a nice day! Thank you for choosing us :)

    We had a great experience with Mr. Raffaele , his knowledge, kindness and experience about his job. With his guidance, we explore new places and had wonderful timing. Coming to know about wine tasting trip in Lucca was amazing. Herein, we would like to suggest anyone to obtain new adventure with him.

    Mary_L, Jul 2023
    We visited two very interesting wineries based at opposite ends and on the outskirts of Lucca. The one improvement I would strongly recommend the company makes is to drive us around the outside of Lucca through the hills and countryside which is what we expected. However when going from one winery to the other we were driven through the commercial area of Lucca. Apart from that a very good tour.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Ciao! Thanks for the feedback and the advices. We drive around the hills at the wineries, but we also like to make you see the historical part of lucca to make you breath the atmosphere of the place :)
    A delightful day
    Christine_B, Jul 2023
    We very much enjoyed the day and the wines. However one slight criticism is that the second winery was not as listed on the original tour and I think might have had a little more to offer. However it was delightful to have lunch outside and everyone we met was charming.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Thank you for the advice Christine :)

    Priscilla_C, Jul 2023
    We enjoyed viewing the beautiful countryside and surroundings. Our tour guide Raphael was wonderful. He was charming, witty and extremely knowledgeable. He told us a lot about the history of Lucca and of course the history of wine making and the wineries we visited. If we take another tour I would request him. Bravo Raphael!
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Ciao Priscilla, we had a nice day, thanks so much :)
    Amazing!!
    Allison_P, Jun 2023
    We had the most amazing experience with Marco! From Marco, to the tour, vineyards and wines themselves it was an unforgettable experience! Don’t hesitate to go, you will not regret it! One of our highlights!
