Franco never lets you down. Even though I've done his tour before, he found something new for us to do!!! Cooking class, Brunello tasting, sitting on the Piazza del Campo and just taking in the beauty of Siena. Mille Grazie, Franco for your professional and warm tour. LOVE IT!

If you want to avoid tourists and visit with the real people of Tuscany, from winemakers to restaurateurs , Franco is for you! His passion for his work, wine, and his country is unequalled. True value, and probably one of our best days. Can you imagine pleasing eight very diverse personalities? Not only did Franco excel....we will not soon forget... More

Franco is very knowledgeable and combine that with a great sense of humor made the wine tour very enjoyable. His passion for the food and wine of Tuscany was apparent and my wife and I had a great time. Would do it again when we visit Tuscany again.

We spent 12 days in Italy - Rome, Florence, Venice and much in-between. Without question our best day was our wine tour of Montalcino with Franco. The wine tasting, the history lessons, the overall education and the lunch was simply amazing. Franco took us around Montalcino as if we were life long friends. The tour and day exceeded all of...

We had the time of our lives on Franco's Brunello tour. We were lucky enough to have him all to ourselves and he truly went above and beyond our expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Franco when you find yourself in Siena. He sincerely made our trip!!!! Thank you so much, Franco! We will need forget you or Montalcino!!!!

We went on a day trip to Siena with MyTour. We are not usually keen on conducted tours but this was really well done , including visits to Tuscan villages and a Chianti wine farm. We joined the guide for lunch at her recommended restaurant and couldn't believe the value , especially the amount of wine provided . It was... More

I am still left spellbound by the experience I had with Franco and my wine tour covering the famous Montalcino and Montepulciano wine precincts. I arrived in Siena quite late and with the excellent reviews posted decided to call Franco last minute. As and a keen wine enthusiast I was seeking a tour with guide that was passionate, accomodating, experienced... More

This was my second opportunity to spend a day with Franco and explore even further Tuscany and all it has to offer. I wanted to treat my friend Stephania to the Franco Fadda experience and he did not disappoint. From the pick-up in the morning to the end of the day, once again it was an experience I will never...

We recently returned from a wonderful vacation to Italy that included a visit to Siena. The highlight was our wine tour with Franco. There were eight in our tour group and we all had a great time touring the family owned wineries and having a delicious lunch. Franco was very knowledgeable about the region and the wines. It was a... More

We did the Chianti Classico Tour with Franco - there were 11 of us and Franco and his assistant, Sergio, picked us up in 2 'people movers' from our villa near Lecchi in Chianti. Franco is extremely knowledgeable about the region and its wines and took us to some interesting and varied wineries - he certainly knows his stuff when... More
