We called and booked the horseback tour in the day. I am not sure if you can just stop by and hope for a spot. The instructor was friendly and attentive to our younger children who were riding for their fist time. It was a scenic route through the grape vines and back area. A great experience and highly recommended.... More

We visited Il Vecchio Maneggio on May 25, 2016 as part of a bus tour to Tuscany. We immediately fell in love with the place – the vineyards, the farm, the winery, the gardens, the restaurant – it was all so very beautiful. We had lunch at the restaurant. We were a bit apprehensive since we are vegetarians. But the... More

My husband and I went on an hour-long horseback riding excursion at Il Vecchio Maneggio and greatly enjoyed it. Our guide was calm and friendly, and riding on horseback through the Tuscan countryside is an almost surreal experience. Beautiful!

We attended a wine pairing lunch as part of our Walkabout Tour. The place is family run and everything is organic from the grapes, olives, honey, Florentine Cows, etc. We feasted on antipasti, fresh olive oil and honey, pasta, and wine. Truly "La Dolce Vita". Honey, olive oil and other items are available for purchase. Just minutes from San Gimignano,... More

The horses are so well kept, the scenery you ride through is fantastic Not sure if it was just our tour, but the ridding was meant to be 90 minutes, we were one hour, Our guide spent all her time texting on the phone, no conversation or information. The honey they produce is fantastic.

Their horseback riding sounded wonderful, but turned into simply a walk through beautiful vineyards. Would have liked to explore more and have a faster pace. Our guide only spoke italian and was not very personable.

Eight of us reserved space for dinner at the Agriturismo Il Vecchio Maneggio for a Sunday night. We were told to be there no later that 7:45 so we could enjoy an "aperitivo" with the other guests who were also spending the night there. We were greeted by the Hostess of the facility, Tiziana who was the cook, the entertainment,... More

Like much of Italy, this was just simple but quality entertainment. Place was near San Gimignano and people were very friendly offering a local wine afterwards.
