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.

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!!!
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!
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.
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!!
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.
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!
Amazing!! A must do for Florence and Tuscany trips
Never riden a moped/scooter before and it was great.
Angel, our guide, was superb! A lovely guy. Our group of 4 were just lovely and got on great.
Dinner was beautiful and the ride was just amazing.. an unforgettable day thank you

One of the best activities that I did on this trip to Italy. The instructor was knowledgeable, informative and so fun to be with. The experience outside of the city is one not to be missed. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy a unique experience outside of the hustle of tourist packed streets.
This tour was one of the highlights of our vacation. Our tour guide David provided us with all of the information we needed to make it safely through the beautiful hills and valleys of the Tuscan country side. We arrived at the winery and were treated to a wonderful lunch with an excellent selection of wines followed by a tour. David was attentive to our group and made sure we were well prepared to drive these great little cars. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a nice day away from the city and is up for driving a great old car and seeing some wonderful scenery.
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!
Fantastic tour. Driving vintage Fiats around Tuscany is an incredible way to see the countryside. The vineyard is beautiful with great wines. Our tour guide Nicol was friendly, knowledgable, and very fun.
Fantastic tour guide and unforgettable Vespa ride and lovely dinner at an Italian countryside cooking school. Beautiful farm location and great conversation!
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.
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.
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!
Absolutely Fantastic Day Out. By Far the best thing you could do while away.
Just Do It
Fantastic experience. Must do in Venice. Wish it was longer
We had a really great time riding in the Tuscan countryside. Lunch at the vineyard was great too. The guides gave us some time to take photos at scenic spots and were always on the look out for oncoming traffic so that they could warn drivers of the convoy.
Doing what: Full Day Tuscany Vespa Tour with Lunch
This was the best experience we had in Italy, it exceeded our expectations and specially appreciated the lovely lunch in the Tuscan villa. Angel and team are excellent and I would highly recommend it.
SO MUCH FUN! My husband and I and two sons did this our first day in Florence. Fabian was our guide and he was great!!! Only wish we could have had him on other tours! Not only was he entertaining but he was also very patient and made sure that all riders were as safe as possible! I believe he does other tours for Viator, so if possible try to get Fabian! He can speak several languages which was very impressive as well. If I had a daughter I would love to set him up with her. Thank you again Fabian and Viator for a great time!
excellent trip. I was a little hesitant the first time I pulled out in the busy traffic and a busy intersection. but the vespa handled beautifully and of course, it got easier the longer I rode it. then the dinner at the taste of Italy school was unexpected.
best wishes, mark and melissa hendrix
It was amazing. Best tour of our 2 week visit to Italy.
