We just returned from Italy and one of our highlights was spending the day with Franco Faddo. I wasn't sure what to expect; a friend had recommended Franco's wine tour. I think the number one take-away is that Franco really wants you to enjoy yourself and experience the pleasures of the local Tuscan wine and food. We had nine people... More

This man is most passionate about wines and the Tuscan region. He sincerely wants you to enjoy your visit and will do virtually anything to make you feel comfortable. When the day is over you have learned, tasted, enjoyed and embraced the wine process. You are treated to olive oil tastings, an elaborate lunch and better yet you have made... More

More of a tour of the chianti region than a wine tour, the two wineries we visited were more just part of the casual and informative tour of the countryside the Franco knows so well. Franco is extremely service-oriented and made an extra effort to ensure that everyone on the tour was having a great experience. He spent extra time... More

We did the Chianti wine tour with Franco and had a wonderful experience. He responded quickly to my emails and coordinated a meeting place with us since we were staying at a villa outside of Siena. Franco has a terrific personality; he is warm, funny, animated, and clearly has a love for the region and its food and wine. During... More

I don't often write reviews Full Stop. But for this tour I am taking the time. Before I booked this I read extensively all the options and weighed up the pros and cons and price of each. It took me a good hour. Let me save you all an hour of your life. Just book this. You will get a... More

I went on this tour with my mom and a few friends while staying in Siena in late May 2012. I was hesitant at first, thinking that it might be a touristy, Disney World-style tour of local wineries that would take up an entire day of our precious time, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Apart from speaking near-perfect... More

All the previous reviews have ably covered Franco's extensive wine knowledge, the access to smaller and wineries which are mostly inaccessible to the general public and the beautiful countryside viewed along the way. All true and these points cannot be underestimated. I would also like to acknowledge Franco's generosity, wonderful sense of humour (which really did make our day) and... More

We recently went to Italy for a 2 week vacation, and had prearranged Franco's Wine Tour. It turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Franco met us first thing in the morning at a place that was easy for us to find with our car. We started out by going for some gelato and then made... More

We signed up for the small group tour Brunello di Montalcino to taste Brunellos in Tuscany. Franco picked us up at our hotel for a day that included Brunello wine and other great red wine tasting with local wine makers. We started the day off by stopping to see a vintage car rally that was racing this particular weekend. We... More
