We loved this small group Vespa ride tour, our guide Angel/Angelo is very friendly and funny, made the 4-hour ride more enjoyable. We felt like locals there for a while, riding the off beaten path we wouldn't have passed or known. The lunch at the end of the tour was also very lovely and delicious. Highly recommended if you're not into typical big tours.
Absolutely loved this tour! I have been on a couple of vespa tours in the past but particularly enjoyed travelling alongside classic Fiat 500's this time. A great surprise! Tour guide was super friendly, the bikes (a helmets) looked great and the scenery was, as always, spectacular. Great fun and highly recommended :)
Bring your driving licence with this tour. They will check it.
We had a hard time finding them, and were grateful they waited for us. I could not ride the vespa, but my son did. I was in the Fiat with the tour director and was glad. I had more time to look around and find delight in watching my son have fun. We had a few little accidents, but they were handled in a professional way and did not detour us from the very delectable lunch we had in Tuscany alfresco, with home made lasagna and other delights. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe.
This has been on our bucket list for a long time and we weren't disappointed - an amazing tour! The classic old vespa's were fantastic, Angelo our tour guide was superb and the countryside was spectacular. All topped off with a light lunch and glass of local wine overlooking the Tuscan countryside - if you want a Vespa tour in Italy, this is the one to do!
A great tour with the tour provider,, so much fun!!!! the perfect way to experience little villages outside Florence, great lunch in the countryside.... I would do it again....
This tour was incredible! The Tour guides were beyond perfect and not only made sure we felt safe, but they took the time to stop in amazing places along the tour to take pictures. This was the best tour my husband and I took while we were in Florence! After the vespa tour, they took us to a great restaurant in Florence where we had a big meal with wine! This was the highlight of our honeymoon and we wish we could go back tomorrow!
It was an incredible experience. Way better than what I was expecting. You actually ride on a vintage Vespa or if you prefer, in the iconic Fiat 500 through the narrow roads of Tuscany. Our guide was wonderful (Julien) and it was one of the most fulfilling experiences I ever had in a trip.
This was a treat for my 50th Birthday and a really special way to remember the day. After a brief 30 metre ride up the alley to check you can stay upright on the bike, we were off into the busy Florence traffic and over the Arno heading for the hills. The tour was great fun but you do need to be confident on the roads in town. If the traffic lights go red after the 4 bikes in front have gone through then you stop and radio ahead. Plenty of stops to admire the views, take in a bit of history and relax. Lunch was home made Tuscan cooking and great fun with a bottle of wine. Not too much as you have to head back into the busy traffic of Florence to end the tour. Thoroughly recommend and brilliant memories to take away.
We spent two weeks in Italy and this was the highlight of our trip. Riding the vespa was a blast! Angel was an awesome tour guide as he led us through the countryside of Tuscany. The dinner following the vespa tour was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour. It's not to be missed!
The meeting location was a little tricky to find. We were almost late because it is in a little alley and difficult to find. Give yourself extra time to find it. In hind insight, we would have found the spot the day before to avoid the panic. Otherwise, it was great fun. Angel provided us with good instructions on how to drive the Vespas and we hit the road. We spend some time at different locations to take pictures and to see the vineyards. We stopped for a beautiful lunch that was set outside in a beautiful hilltop kitchen/ venue. Tons of pasta, bruschetta, cheese, meats , wine and dessert. It was a great adventure. The smell of diesel was a little overwhelming at times. We are not used to such emissions. I would not want to be an asthmatic on this tour., but I would do it again for sure.
By far the 'hands down' best thing we could have ever decided to do!
The tour guide was wonderful, very knowledgeable and personable. The traffic was a little crazy in Florence, so I would recommend being somewhat familiar with a vespa before booking this tour. I give it 5 stars - it was great fun!!
My husband and I had a fantastic time on this tour. I had never driven a Vespa /scooter before and I was a little nervous however our tour guide was patient and kept an eye on me and I had little trouble. The scenery was breathtaking and the dinner we had prepared for us delicious and very relaxed. Great value for money and a wonderfully unique way to see Florence! Thank you.
Our tour included my husband, daughter and son-in-law on Vespa scooters. I rode with my husband and the others had their own scooters. We had a blast! We drove throughout the city of Florence and then into the Tuscany hillsides to see olive orchards and vineyards. Our guide was Angel and he was so interesting as he shared information on the history and culture of Florence and Tuscany. We had a delicious lunch and an unexpected outburst from Mother Nature of a hailstorm that blanketed the roads and uprooted trees. Angel organized a very safe return back to the office and our cars. We truly had a memorable outing with Mother Natures help and Angel's expertise.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. My wife and I were treated with an unforgettable experience. A special thanks to our guide Luca who was simply brilliant A minor glitch was that though we were eventually served vegetarian food they weren't initially prepared. Overall superb and fully recommended.
