Fantastic experience. Must do in Venice. Wish it was longer
Julian was the best tour guide we have ever had. He is knowledgeable of Italian history and geography, is down-to earth, funny and fun. The tour structure in itself was already amazing, but Julian and the local tour operator made this experience truly unbelieveable. thanks!
Highly recommended, but in the off season as we had only one other scooter, Great ride into the hills and country side of Tuscany followed by a most satisfying diner. Our tour guide was young and energetic, living a dream many have no idea exist, what a step ahead in life he has, not to mention meeting people from around the globe.
This tour was such a blast! We had a quick training session in the streets of Florence and were then on our way into the Tuscan Countryside. Our guide, Angel, was very friendly and showed us all of the best sights around Florence and the countryside. We travelled through great small towns and stopped at a number of vantage points along the way. The lunch towards the end of the tour was to die for - great Italian feast and red wine in a beautiful Italian home - I was expecting a sandwich on the run and this was completely unexpected. If you are looking for a truly unique experience then this tour is for you. It certainly was a highlight of our European trip.
Everything was well organized. Agency person I met was very friendly and helpful. Great day trip.
We had such a great time!!!! The tour guide was wonderfull and took us to places that the tour buses couldn't go. We had a delicious meal in a private kitchen in the Tuscany hills. Coming back into the city people loved the site of 6 vintage fiats . Many were taking pictures of us and filming the fiat caravan. We felt like we were being chased by paporazzi. The day was great from beginning to end.
This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! Julian, our tour guide, was fantastic from start to finish. We weren't sure what to expect when we signed up but this certainly did not disappoint. He gave everyone a brief tutorial and the drivers had to navigate a small course prior to departure. We wound through the beautiful Tuscan countryside and stopped along the way to take photos and Julian gave us some great historical facts about the area. There were five couples in our group and we stopped at the end for some great food and wine. Matteo, who I believe was training with Julian, aided us all throughout the day as well. I would highly recommend taking this tour... it really is a blast!!
An excellent experience. Location of the company in the middle of town. Julian was an excellent guide and had a great love for and knowledge of Florence. A fun must do experience followed by a beautiful lunch.
Fantastic tour guide and unforgettable Vespa ride and lovely dinner at an Italian countryside cooking school. Beautiful farm location and great conversation!
The highlight of our time in Florence. Our tour guide, Julian, was extremely knowledgable and friendly. We felt completely at ease on our Vespa as he made sure to wait for us after intersections and keep an enjoyable pace. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to see the countryside and also eat an amazing dinner at the end of your day!
My wife and I had a blast driving one of the vintage fiats through the surrounding hills of Florence! Our guide, Angel was a terrific and knowledgeable guide sharing some of Florence's rich history with us. The lunch provided was wonderful and the scenery to and from was stunning.
Definitely a highlight of our stay and we would recommend this tour to anyone.
Pick a nice day and enjoy the tiny country roads in a tiny Italian car!
What a fantastic tour! Our guide was kind, professional, and very knowledgeable. I have to admit, I was a bit nervous at times driving thru traffic, but the whole experience is something not to be missed. Thank you Walkabout tours!!!
My husband and I couldn't wait to drive a Vespa, but I'm very short and light in weight so I didn't fit it well enough. I was really disappointed but Fabio, our optimistic tour guide was great, he suggested that I switch to a 500 classic Fiat and that worked out well for me in fact I'd like to find a car in the U.S. that would fit me as well.
The whole day turned out so fun, driving around a busy city like Florence felt fine too after we got the hang of it and became convinced that Fabio definitely had our backs. Driving out in the country was really great, we stopped at various landmarks in the Tuscan hills and Fabio imparted his extensive knowledge making it extremely interesting. The tour was topped off by a fabulous Italian meal enjoyed with a countryside view. Fabio took great pains to make us safe! We would definitely recommend this tour for fun, value, and interest.

One of our favorite events on our Italy trip! Fabian was very charming, capable and knowledgeable. Excellent English which was very helpful. He helped me get going on my scooter when I was having an issue, and was very encouraging all the way. We ended up having a great time, and lunch at the villa was so pleasant and relaxing. The scooters are older and have sticky throttles, but after I practiced for a few blocks I was fine. A memorable and fun experience...now I want a scooter here at home!
My only feedback would be to have each person practice on their own scooter at the beginning of the tour, to give everyone a longer time to get the feel for their individual throttles and brakes because each scooter is a little different.
A great experience that I have recommended to several people already!
This Vespa tour was the highlight of our trip. We had so much fun with Julian, who is a wonderful guide very personable, knowledgeable, and enjoyable. We were able to see parts of the countryside of Florence that we would have not otherwise been able to enjoy. And the trip was capped off with an absolutely delightful lunch with one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. We were in Venice shortly after this trip and met some tourists going to visit Florence and we highly recommended this tour and Julian!
The high point of our visit to Florence, believe it or not. Our guide, Angel, was the most pleasant, enjoyable, knowledgeable guide. We zipped though hillside villages on our Vespa scooter, saw breathtaking views, saw little villages all around Florence. Stopped for a wonderful meal and wine at the tour operator's cooking school in the hills above Florence. Even if you don't know how to drive a scooter or don't want to , Angel conducts many other tours in the area. I highly recommend this tour.
The vespa tour in Florence was definitely our favorite part of our trip in Italy. We had a lot of fun, and we really liked what we got for what we paid. We got beautiful panoramic views of Florence. We saw parts of the region that are not crowded with tourists, and we have a delicious and authentic Italian meal, with wine and coffee. Our guide, Fabian, is a great guy. He is fun, speaks very good English, and, as a native of Florence, knows the region very well. We highly recommend this tour!
It turns out we weren and #39;t very confident on the Vespas. So our VERY fun guide suggested the little Fiat they had. . Julian took us and another couple on a scooter out of Florence, up in the beautifully wooded hills overlooking the city. Thanks to Julian, this adventure was the best of entire trip!!
We had a blast! Fabian was our tour guide, and he was fantastic! He was very helpful and thorough in explaining to inexperienced riders so well that they looked like pro's! We had a great group of people, and everyone had such a good time. The tour took us up into the hills of Tuscany where we could see the beautiful city of Florence and the vineyards. It was so beautiful! Amazing views and photo opportunities! Fabian was extremely attentive to the group when riding through the traffic. He made sure we all stayed together, even stopping several times to check on drivers for questions or concerns. He had us laughing practically the whole time. Very entertaining and informative. We absolutely loved this tour. It was our favorite tour in Italy!
Great tour, lot's of Fun

Really nice tour guide
Had the best time on this Vespa tour! It rained earlier in the day and we were able to move our reservation into the afternoon tour. Julian and Mateo were great and fun guides for our crew. Highly recommend if you are looking for something unique to do in Florence. The food at the end of the journey was fantastic too! Big family meal with wine and laughter and good times! Thanks guys for the best memory on our trip!
Sensational. Tour guide was fantastic, Vespasian were fun and lunch and location was far better than we could have imagined. Highly recommend this to everyone whether you think you can ride a Vespa or not.
