This was a great tour. I booked it for my husband who loves cars and things car related. Our guide was Angel and he was great, gave us some information on the history of the Fiat 500 and great tidbits of history on Florence. We were the only 2 people on the tour that day everyone else took the Vespa tour. We had lots of fun, tooks lots of pictures of the very tiny roads we drove on and the fantastic countryside views. Lunch was great too, we sampled various meats, cheeses and vegetables. Angel even recommended another tour for us to go on which was also excellent. We would definitely recommend this tour especially if would love the opportunity to drive a vintage car.
This was a blast!!! So much fun to drive the car, although my mother was a little scared of my driving. Haha. So much fun and the narrow streets in the Tuscan hills were so quaint and provided stunning views. We had delicious, artisan meats and cheeses at a neat place. So memorable!!
A lot of fun. Our group had riders of various abilities, including some with no experience, but we all had a great trip that included great scenery, a terrific lunch, thrills and NO spills.
Absolutely fantastic day. Our tour guide 'Freddy' was really knowledgeable on all aspects of the tour and the area and delivered the information given to us perfectly. This is by far the best way to explore the area of the city you wouldn't get to see without doing hours and hours of research.All topped off with a unique and delicious lunch....we're still talking about it....
The Vespa mopeds were in top notch condition and performed perfectly throughout the day.
Great value for money.
I cannot recommend this highly enough! It is important that the driver is happy to drive a car that has a classic manual gearbox but once that is established the tour is a wonderful and exiting drive around some of the streets of Florence and the country roads around city; taking in beautiful sights and stopping for a fab lunch (on the half day trip) We'll definitely go for the whole day next time. We also want to try a tour on the Vespa scooters. The guys that run the business are very friendly and informative. It was a highlight of our visit to this great city! Suzanne and Julie
This was so much fun and Beatrice was a joy, we went to places that were off the beaten track and so special, the meal a Sebs was also very good would hightly recommend the tour to anybody. Highlight of our trip to Florence thanks so much
Our guide Angel, was informative, friendly, thoughtful and a delight to be with. When he noticed my hesitation with the Vespa, he provided an alternative and helped us have a great day! Everything about the tour was perfect...the guide, the Vespa's, the length of the tour, the information and the sites. A 10 out of 10!!!!
One of the best experiences money can buy
Excellent tour and stefano was a great guide always checking on radio if we were ok. Great drive in the Fiat (on the wrong side off road for us but felt safe at all times..) very fun tour that ended with meal and wine...
If you are going to Florence, put this tour on your itinerary. We were so glad we did!! It was a great way to see the Tuscan hills and see the panoramic views of Florence. Our tour guide Angel was very knowledgable about the history of Florence so he shared facts at each stop off. The lunch stop was at a restaurant owned by a mother and son. Who specialized in homemade foods from the Tuscan region. With a glass of wine, it was a perfect ending to the vespa ride. This was an adventure we will never forget! This tour is a great way to remember your Trip to Italy!
This tour was the highlight of our trip in Florence, highly recommend it.
The Fiat Cinqecento tour of the Tuscan countryside was a blast. Driving a vintage Cinqecento was a bit daunting at first—the cramped interior, rough ride, the non-sequential gearbox, the stiff clutch and the glorified lawnmower engine meant being extra vigilant about the car and your driving. But after a short while one becomes quickly accustomed to this truly unique driving experience. Let’s face it, this is what REAL driving is all about. Offsetting the challenges of the car is its go kart like handling which makes maneuvering through the tight (and I do mean TIGHT) roads all that much more fun. Although the Tuscan countryside is only minutes away, the Cinqecento’s slower engine means a longer and more scenic and enjoyable drive. We stopped at several locations that provided wonderful views of the countryside and of Florence itself (great photo ops). In our group that day were three cars and two Vespas (one ridden by our guide, Freddy, an American expat). The weather that day was sunny and warm, making the drive that much more pleasant. It was not without incidents however—a detached battery lead in our car led to stalling in the middle of an intersection, which meant several anxious minutes until Freddy came to our rescue. He quickly got the car out of harms’ way and fixed the problem and we were on our way shortly. Later on, a couple on the Vespa had an unsolicited contact with a ditch and then a wall, resulting in some skinned knees and hands. Fortunately the accident happened right outside a daycare and the nurse inside patched up the wounds quickly. We ended the half-day tour with a light lovely lunch of meats and cheeses and wine. Highly recommend for driving enthusiasts. (P.S. In case you haven’t figured it out by now, you must know how to drive stick for this tour.)
We loved this trip. Our guide, Angel, was very enthusiastic and really did a terrific job. The trip ended up being a little different than advertised.. we had a combination Vespa/Auto trip. It just made the trip more interesting. We stopped by the wayside and let a wedding party use our equipment for photo props. We expeceted a "cheapo" lunch in a "dive", but we ate in a very nice mom and pop deli. We got our money's worth and then some.
We had the best time on this tour! We did have a technical problem with one of the Vespas, but our guide worked hard to fix the issue and make our tour fantastic. He was very personable and the six of us had an amazing time. We even got to taste food and wine at the end! I would definitely recommend this or their Fiats if you are not comfortable with a scooter.
This was outstanding--loved every minute of it. They kept the groups small which was nice. One of the highlights of our trip!
