A wonderful half day tour, leaving form Florence on Vespas. Beautiful scenery and loads of fun. Best thing we have done in Italy. Thank you to Angel for trusting us all with your Vespas and making the day so memorable. Definitely worth every cent.
After a shaky start neither of us had driven a scooter before and with lots of patience from our tour guide, we headed off for a wonderful trip through the hills. our guide was lovely, the lunch and location was excellent. I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting a little taste of Italy :
It was amazing. Best tour of our 2 week visit to Italy.
Tour guide was great. Views were stunning. Driving a vintage Vespa through the streets of Florence was exhilarating
Little nervous about this tour when we booked but it was great. Fabian Walkabout Tours got us familiar with the Vespa before setting out and once you are going, it is lots of fun! Once you hit the hills, very scenic views with lots of stops along the way for photos and to check in that everything is ok! Evening break at Walkabout Estate was an unexpected delight - food and wine just a bit since we were driving. Fabian was informative and patient with those of us new to the Vespa experience. Absolutely a must try!
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
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!
This is what I chose to do for my birthday. It was simply amazing. We had such a great time. Angel was our guide, a very nice guy that took excellent care of us. Riding the Vespa's were so much fun, I wanted to do it again, but we didn't have time. Lunch was delicious and included a beautiful view while we did it.
I'd do this tour again without a doubt. We'll worth the money. Thanks Angel!
This tour was the highlight of our trip! Our tour guide Fabio was amazing and I would highly suggest doing any tour he does just for the entertainment!! We stopped at great locations, and lunch was fantastic! We loved the farm, Carmellas cooking and Falco the dog :) Do this tour, you won't regret it
the highlight of our trip and we have went to 10 countries. an amazing experience. would definitely do it again. I spent some time on the back of the vespa with my husband and the rest in the fiat bambino which was just as good if not better. the car was very comfortable. our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. the country side so beautiful. it was great to experience out of the way Florence. the meal was also wonderful. all in all an amazing experience. thank you so much.

Husband, myself and three adult sons had a blast doing this. Angel was fun and did a great job explaining what to expect in Florence traffic, carefully leading the small pack of Vespa's in his Fiat through downtown Florence into the Tuscan countryside. We stopped several times for a closer look at sights or photo ops. The ride through the hills surrounded by vineyards and olive groves was beautiful. You could smell the basil. We stopped and had the most fabulous lunch at a private estate that also offers cooking classes and returned to Florence in the afternoon. Our best tour of this trip!
The tour guide was wonderful, the vespa was easy to learn how to drive, and the scenery was beautiful. We rode with two people on the same vespa and it was still very comfortable. We actually got a flat tire halfway through but they were quick to bring a replacement vespa and we were back on our way. The included meal was more of sampling appetizers and it had traditional Italian food. Overall I would highly recommend this tour. It was a great way to see the surrounding areas of Florence, very fun, and one of the highlights of our trip.
This tour was one of the highlights of our four day stay in Florence. Our guide, Angelo, was very helpful and shared with us a lot of information about life and history of Tuscany, Florence in particular. The ride was smooth and well organised. It started with short orientation and test drive and finished with simple, yet gorgeous food in the hills of Tuscany. Highly recommended!
An absolute 'MUST DO' in Florence. We had four others in our group from the USA who had NO scooter experience and all found it very easy so 'No experience necessary' is so true. Our guide 'Angel' was brilliant. Following him driving a vintage hotted up Giannelli Tuned Fiat 500 which had a 'friuty' exhaust note made sure everyone knew we were coming, so made even the traffic in Florence a breeze, not at all scary or daunting. Once out of town the sights, smells and sounds of the Tuscan countryside really came alive. At out first stop, after about 30 minutes the huge smiles and high fives demonstrated how happy we all were and a great bond developed between us all, perfectly managed with a sense of humour by 'Angel'. Seeing baby deer on the road in front of us was another special moment. The last stop at a private villa with great Italian food and wine where else in the world would you get wine to drink on a hired scooter tour capped off a brilliant day. Don't even think twice, you must do it. Thanks Angel and the team.
This was a hugely enjoyable tour, which my wife and I were a little apprehensive about, but any concerns we had were soon forgotten as we made our way following the guide.
I would highly recommend this tour, very enjoyable, and finished with a lovely meal in a very picturesque Tuscan location.
This tour was one of the highlights of our Italy trip. We wanted to be able to experience the Tuscan country side, while not sitting in a bus/car. The tour was run very smoothly. We met at the Tour Operation center and practiced on the Vespas. We then rode around Florence and to the overlook, then went to the country side. The guide Julian was very friendly and would take us down backroads to really experience the land. After the tour, we had an amazing lunch in the perfect location on the edge of town. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in taking a morning or afternoon away from the city and experience Tuscany
We had the best time on the Vespa Tour. Our guide, Stephano was fantastic! The sights were awesome and the dinner we shared on the hillside was unbelievable. Thank you for one of the best tours while we were in Italy! We recommend this tour for anyone seeking to see the hillside of Italy and also enjoy a great meal that they prepared for us.
Unique way of seeing a bit of Florence and Tuscany! Fabian was an excellent guide and the feast at the end was bellissimo!! Would definitely recommend to other travellers.
We had a wonderful time! Julian our tour guy was great!!! Funny and Informative...it was the best part of my trip to Italy...and the food was awesome
This was the best experience of our entire trip. Fabian Fabulous, as we called him was AWESOME!!! Best tour guide. My wife had her own Vespa. She thought she was going to be comfortable on it, but she was very shaky and hated it. Fabian allowed her to leave hew Vespa on the side of the road he came back to pick it up later so that she could ride in the old Gianni with him. From that point on, she had the time of her life as well. The Tuscany hills were beautiful, and the dinner at the end of the tour at the company's private property was incredible. Fabian, if you ever make it to San Francisco, let us know! -David and Judy
I could easily say that this has been the best day of my entire trip in Italy!
Beautiful place, fantastic views, wonderful guide, amazing food... perfection in all its meanings truly!
You simply have to do this tour - it was the highlight of our trip to Italy. Julian the tour guide was awesome - he grew up in Italy but also spent a lot of time in America so his knowledge of the area and the language was flawless and he was so much fun, he kept us entertained the whole way. My daughter was not very confident in riding the scooter on her own so Julian offered to take her on the back of his bike, which she said was great as she received a running commentary the whole way and learnt so much about the local area. We stopped a few times to take photos and then we had the most delicious food cooked for us with a glass of red wine to top it off with a view to take your breath away, overlooking the vineyards at their own restaurant. I cannot recommend this highly enough it was simply a fantastic day and it was spent with some really lovely people from around the world.
Fantastic experience! Fabian, our guide, was charming, patient and fun. He made the experience even better.
