So Much fun! Beautiful views through the country side on small roads. Finished with a fantastic lunch back in Florence.
We loved this tour! Our tour guide Stephano was fabulous and the countryside was beautiful. We stopped at a nice cafe style bar for lunch which was really nice with great food wine and Prosecco. If you can get Stephano you'll be really happy!!! He was our guide the next day as well on our bike tour!
For shear, unadulterated fun this cannot be beat...a TEN POINTER on a fun scale. The cars are nicely restored and well maintained "drivers" that are just a kick in the pants to drive whether in town or countryside. Scenery was amazingly varied considering we were never outside shouting distance of downtown Florence...would have thought a number of times we were way out in rural Tuscany. Wine tasting (suitable for a driving tour) and food were both good and in a very nice setting. Guide, Stefano, was most engaging and quite knowledgeable. Our outing was combined with an outing of scooters which tended to keep speeds down quite a bit, but even at only 45KPH in third gear these tiny little cars have espiritu automobile italiano (we are died in the wool Alfa Romeo owners!!). This was the most fun thing we did in two and a half weeks in Greece and Italy! A SUGGESTION TO VIATOR...On your website you should have ALL YOUR FIAT DRIVING TOURS IN A DEDICATED LISTING in addition to where you have them currently sprinkled about...if we had not been specifically looking for a half-day afternoon tour that meshed with our arrival from Venice by train we would never have stumbled onto this great particular tour!!!
This tour was awesome. It was the most fun we had on any tour.
It was super. Angel and Julian were helpful, informative, funny friendly, and all around terrific. The car was a hoot. The food was wonderful. Definitely five stars
This tour was so much fun! It was an unforgettable experience driving along in convoy with two red, one green, two white, one navy and one light blue Fiat, plus three Vespars following close behind the lead Fiat. Due to the Florence marathon being on the same morning as our tour, we decided to travel with Chris, our guide, in the lead blue Fiat and we had a fabulous time even though we didn't drive ourselves. These cars are amazing and it is incredible how nostalgic on-lookers are as the convoy passes by.....we received lots of friendly waves from those who most likely had vivid recollection of the 1960's when they drove Fiats just like these ones. We felt like we were just out of a movie set. This tour is to be highly recommended!
we had a wonderful time driving the little Fiat 500 out of Florence and into the country. our guide, Chris was just great--funny and informative. we also met some other very nice people who were participants. by the end of the tour we were all good friends.
Highly recommended! Love our guide Stefano, he's the best! We enjoyed the ride and experience :)
Ok, so we have seen all the tourist attractions and as many churches as we could bare. We shopped until we dropped and were looking for something unique and memorable. We found and booked this tour while in Florence the night before and had a wonderful time.
The owner and tour guide was incredibly gracious, knowledgeable and most of all, FUN. Thank you for one of the best, if not the best, excursion I have booked. We drove through city streets of Florence to scenic overlooks of the city and into the countryside. Towards the end of the tour we had lunch with our group to talk about our experience and share a great meal, wine, etc.
If you are looking for something unique and fun, do not hesitate to book this tour.
What a great tour! So fun after 2 weeks of seeing museums and churches--it was a nice break. Jillian, our guide was fun and so passionate about Florence. Even on a rainy day it was great. The cars are in great shape. Lunch was perfect. I would do it again!
Excelent service. Great guide, we loved Angel. Great experience driving a piece of italian History. Finishing with a tasteful meal in ZEB. A very good and everything thought out tour, where nothing is left to chance.
Everyone should try a Walkabout Florence Tour.

What a ball. We had so much fun on this tour and think its a must do for the young at heart tourer. Stephano our guide was fantastic, fun and has the patience of a saint (to keep track of this little convoy). The fiats were so great and the people to the vespas had fun too. The scenery was beautiful and to top the experience of we had a lovely shared rustic lunch at the near end of the tour
Unforgettable experience!!!I don't usually write reviews, but man! what a great Experience!
There is a reason for 5 star reviews and i read them before booking mine and now im rating 5 stars as well. Angel our tour guide was one interesting man with lots of knowledge and interesting stories. If you can drive a stick shift, this a tour for you. This tour was highlight of my trip to Italy. Me and my girlfriend had a blast. Our red Fiat broke down going uphill due to rare fuel issue, but in 10min helped arrived and when they realized they can't fix the car on the spot, few minutes later another cute Green Fiat arrived as the replacement. What a great customer service and experience. We drove around small streets and passed through country side towns followed by stopping at a vineyard and have a light meal at a restaurant with a great and friendly staff. Book this tour and if you are lucky your might end up seeing a butt crack of an Italian mechanic working on your car.
