I am so glad I decided to do this tour! I still can't believe how much fun it was. So many of the reviews on here say that this tour was the best part of their trip, and I certainly felt the same way after doing it myself! Fabian made sure we learned to drive the Vespa quickly and safely. In addition to how much fun it was driving the Vespa, which was an absolute blast, it was such a fast way to see the city of Florence and the surrounding villages in a short amount of time. It was just the right combination of learning, riding, history, site seeing and food. Fabian made sure we were all having fun and were safe at the same time. As a Florence native, he had a ton of knowledge about the city and its history. I had such a great time, I ended up doing a different tour with the same tour company the next day, which was equally amazing!
This is one of if not the best holiday trips we have ever done. Angel was an absolute star and pointed out so many things you otherwise would not notice or see. The lunch was superb and truly traditional Italian food. Can't recommend this trip enough and will definitely repeat it when we come back to Florence.
This was the highlight of our trip! We stumbled upon this accidentally on Viator and we couldn't have been happier. I was nervous about riding a Vespa at first first time in a very long time but Angel and his team were excellent and gave us enough instruction at first so that we would be confident, safe drivers. The trip started in Florence and wound its way up and down a few large mountains and in and out of a few villages. This was by far the best way to experience the villages outside of Florence and to learn a little bit about the history of the region while having a hell of a lot of fun. Angel is extremely knowledgable and friendly and was always a few feet away from us he follows or leads in a Fiat so that he can keep an eye on all of the riders at once. The tour ended with lunch at a stunning hilltop kitchen. I can honestly say that I will be referring this tour via Viator to any friends traveling to Florence, that I will be recommending Angel and his shop to anyone who happens to be visiting, and that I will be re-visiting my next time in Florence.
Lovely host, perfect duration, wonderful meal at scenic beautiful location.
Without question the highlight of our stay in Florence, a must do if you want to get out into the countryside and see more of the Tuscan Hills. The guide Angel was brilliant, informative and friendly and if we went back we would do it again.
Loved our tour guide, Julian. Very easy to understand, as he and #39;s half American. He was very patient teaching those who and #39;d never driven a Vespa. It was lots of fun riding around the gorgeous countryside and the dinner was delicious! Would highly recommend this tour!
Very enjoyable. Our guide Angel was very informative and helpful. Views of countryside were amazing and lunch was great. The vespa's were fun to ride.
Can not say enough good things about this Vespa tour.
Our guide Johnny was amazing thank you again Johnny and we will take this tour again when we revisit Florence.
it was great way to get out of the busy touristy city, great guide stopping at relevant points along the way. great lunch hosted by a local family on their olive estate.
Wonderful day riding through Tuscany with great guides Johnny and Alessandro. Sumptuous meal with amazing view towards the end. The highlight of our European honeymoon. Would do again in a heartbeat.
This tour was the absolute highlight of my entire two week European honeymoon. My husband and I booked this tour last minute for some fun and what we got was an experience of a lifetime. The views were unbelievable and brought tears to my eyes. The guide, Angel, was amazing and we really enjoyed him. The lunch was spectacular.
Highly highly recommend this tour!!
OMG what can I say one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done, a little scary ay first having never rode a scooter before but Angel the guide was amazing. You must do this when you are in Florence - Now home thinking about buying a Vespa
We originally signed up for the Vespa tour, however my wife was uncomfortable on the Vespa so we switched to the Fiat. We were not disappointed in the slightest. The sights were beautiful, the food was amazing, but the highlight of the tour was the guide. Mathew was insightful and hilarious!
Over-the-top fantastic experience. Thank you to our guide Angel and to the tour Operator for one of the best birthdays I have ever had!! Just when you think a day on a vintage Vespa through iconic countryside views cannot get any better, you zip into a stunning estate over-looking Florence and are served a delicious lunch prepared by Chef Isaac. I loved this tour so much I wanted to do it again the next day. Do it, do it, do it!!! You will not be disappointed.
This was by far the best part of our trip. I can't recommend it enough. Angel, our tour guide, was funny and informative. The scenery was breathtaking. The lunch was spectacular. Well worth every penny.
Lucked out and ended up with a private tour because no one else showed up. Fabiano was such an amazing tour guide! He and #39;s so funny and knowledgable about his city! Isaac, the chef made delicious food and we really enjoyed talking to both of them (since it was just us two). Highly recommend!
We had a great time on the Vespa's. We got to see beautiful views of Florence, ride in the countryside and the tour guides were a lot of fun. Lunch was excellent and we had a great experience. We highly recommend this tour, it was one of our favorites.
Absolutely great. Angel have a huge knowledge of the area and he is fun as a tour leader. The Italian meals after the trip is of an high class and is freshly made. Lovely pasta !! and traditional Italian food with good wine. This was the highlight of our vacation to Florence and will recommend it to anyone visiting the Tuscany valley and would like to do something different and experience the Vespa ride.
This tour was undoubtedly the highlight of our trip. I had never been to Florence before and this was definitely the best way to see the city. Our tour guide, Fabian, was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly and welcoming and knew everything there is to know about Florence.
We went out of the city and into the hills of Florence which made for fantastic views and scenery. At the end we had a romantic meal in a lovely setting before heading back into town. This tour is a MUST and well worth the money.
This was the best experience of mine and my partners life!! Wearrived in Florence and loved the city straight away we travelled Rome, Florence and Venice in a week. We did the vespa tour on our first full day and went in the morning. Unfortunately, I wasn't that great on the vespa so I went on the back of my partners but actually I think I had more fun.
We went straight on the Florence roads and up the Tuscan Hills and got to see Florence from a far. It was beautiful. Angel the tour guide was so knowledgeable and taught us lots at each stop.
The tour was so fun and the best way to see Florence - I could not recommend this trip more highly. There was 3 vintage Fiat 500s in front of us and then 6 vespas and it was the coolest moment ever! We all had so much fun as a group and Angel made it extremely fun.
As we drove passed people they were taking photos of us and cheering.
Our final stop was lunch and the trip had already sold us Florence as our favourite City in the world and the most fun we had ever had. But then the lunch topped this experience off. We walked down a hill to the most beautiful setting I have ever seen in my life. There was a dining room set up for lunch for the whole group. They served us a pasta dish to start off with and of course with wine and then brought out the most delicious Tuscan platter of chesses, bread, quiches, olives, hams and salami. it was the BEST meal we had ever had and we were in great company.
When we return to Florence we will be ringing Angel to see if we can do another tour maybe a different route. Also, a man on our tour the day before he did the vespa tour with us did the cookery class which was situated where we had our lunch. He said it was the best experience and most fun he had ever had. You learn how to cook Pizza in the outside stone cook oven, pasta and gelato whilst trying lots of vino! This is run by Angel's wife who we met and she was even more friendly. When we return we will do this!

FANTASTIC time! Saw roads and countryside we would have never experienced without this tour. And, meal setting and food was unexpectedly wonderful.
I'll keep it simple...you will not be disappointed. Chose this adventure.
