Self-Drive Vintage Fiat 500 Tour from Florence: Tuscan Wine Experience

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This topped our fun in Italy! Beppe is fun and informative, runs a great tour. The wine cellar was a wonderful setting for our tasting. He served honey from his wife's hive! The others on our tour were all fun and interesting. Two had taken the city bus there. We shared a taxi back with the other two. That's right, only 6 of us on the tour. Just lovely. Thanks, Beppe!

My Review

The tour itself was incredible, what an amazing opportunity, but for the money should have been flawless. There were preventable problems. 1) the tour was oversold by 2 people 2) the water promised on the bus was one bottle on the return trip after an 11 hour day. At "breakfast" (coffee and croissant on our own tab), there were several people complaining to the guide that they didnt receive it and were thirsty. 3) the transmitter that the curator was using was faulty and there was no back-up equipment. It went in and out and finally was so full of static that she could not use it. Despite her best efforts it was hard to hear her. Then a group of Chinese entered the room before our group was finished and i had the misfortune of the Chinese guide blaring into my ear, yes in Chinese, as I was struggling to hear our guide. This guide should not have even brought her group into that room until ours had left. All the other groups were being respectful of each other that way throughout the day. 4) renting a golf cart for the extensive grounds was ridiculous. You had to rent it from the kiosk you got it from because they kept your ID. I cant walk that far so the guide and my daughter went to the farthest kiosk to get it while i waited near the first kiosk. Besides getting lost on the way back--it is no straight shot--they could not drive they cart up the steep hill back up to get me. My daughter finally appeared on foot while the guide waited with the cart. We walked down the steep incline together. This was all happening during our limited time to enjoy the gardens and as we were paying $30 hour for the "convenience" of the cart. My thanks to the attentive guide for participating in this nonsense. I am very glad we went, but the 5th star here would have been so easy to acheive.

Just be aware that if you wish to see the Roman baths you must pay and are on your own. Loved this trip! Special thanks to our guide, Robin. He was great at making sure those of us who could not walk as fast could catch up with the group while not boring the others with the wait. He was extremely good at his job.

If you are young and walk fast, you will have no issues. This guide took no prisoners. She was off and running and never looked back nor cared who she left behind. She got us a great spot at the street by the bus to see guard march by, but didnt see the actual change. She took the group up by the palace, but got so far ahead of me i couldnt see her and radio was out of earshot. When i got back to the bus there were others who had been left behind. There were about 8 of us! The description never mentioned going inside St Paul's which did not interest me. At the Tower of London she did the same thing and I missed the tour with the Beefeater. I loved the tower of London even on my own though and wish i had just gone there for an entire day. If you have trouble with stairs, and there are many, know there is a disability guide on their website and there is a way to see the crown jewels without the stairs.

This was awful. Audio tape didnt match up with what we were driving by and was barely audible. Loud groups of non-English speakers and the loud bus engine made it impossible. I bailed and got a taxi before the end of the loop. The loop one-way took 21/2 hrs so i would not suggest doing the loop and trying to go back anywhere. Waste of time.
