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.
What a fantastic experience! Our family had a blast (2 adults and 2 kids in one adorable Fiat 500). Highly recommend!
Absolutely brilliant. We'll worth the money. Out for over 4 hours. Our tour guide Chris, took us through Florence, out into the countryside and back again. Took some amazing photos of Tuscany. End of at a lovely cafe for some wine and lunch. I recommend this trip to anyone
This is a very novel and enjoyable Italian experience and is suitable for any traveller looking for a taste of Tuscany as well as for vintage car enthusiasts. Your guide was professional, friendly and very competent at directing a small but diverse group of travellers from all corners of the globe through a safe and pleasant experience. A truly unique and enjoyable day
This was by far the best tour ever! Not only were we able to see the picturesque Tuscan hillside, we did it from a vintage Fiat! It was fun and adventurous. Our guide was awesome! He was so enthusiastic and fun that it was contagious! Our lunch was delicious as well. We had a great meal sharing our experiences with the rest of the tour group and had an opportunity to ask our guide more questions, but over antipasto and wine! I would definitely do this again. Beware though, you need to be very comfortable driving a manual car. Not knowing what to do starting from 1st gear on a hill is scary!
So much fun! Highly recommended for anyone game enough to try, We drove for several hours along narrow lanes, through vineyards and up to several excellent vantage points overlooking Florence. The meal was typically Tuscan cheeses, cured meats, greens and bread with wine or water. Stefano was an excellent guide, leading in a car ahead with walkie talkie giving directions and very informative about the local area and cuisine when not driving. A great and different way to spend an afternoon.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. This was so much fun. Angel our tour guide was the best. He had us drive roads i would have never known about...we were deep in the hills surrounding Florence. He also hooked us up with recommendations of a few restaurants to try. This tour exceeded my expectations
A Very fun way to explore hills around Florence. Included lunch was very nice too.
Amazing experience! Highly recommend to everyone. The guys at Walkabout would really go few extra miles for you to make this an unforgettable experience.
This was one of the most "funnest" tours ! . Driving the Fiat was a hoot ! . Our tour guide Julian was the best ! . Very informative .he took care of the group while driving the whole way ... Thru all the narrow streets .. Thru our roundabouts .. He took every precaution for us and never left us feeling uneasy about driving on unfamiliar roads . Stopped for lunch at this great deli / restaurant .. We even went back for lunch the next day ! .if you want absolute fun .. This is the most " charismatic " way to see the Tuscan area !
Excellent tour! The Fiat was lots of fun and suprisingly easy to drive. Our guide, Andrea was very helpful and passionate about Florence and all it has to offer.
Driving a vintage 500 is lets say 'interesting', lots of fun and the views and village roads in the Tuscan hills around Florence are stunning. We were treated to generous meal meats, cheese and wine once back in Florence so it was a nice end to the trip.
This was an awesome experience. The tour company, WalkaboutFlorence, was fantastic. Knowledgeable, personable guides that really went the extra mile to make sure you had a great time. We loved it so much we booked another tour with them - one of the highlights of our trip.
Possibly the highlight of our trip. We are recommending this to all our friends.
One note: Based on Viator, our trip was to end in a countryside house with the local food and drinks. We ended up going to a selfservice pub in town. Food and drinks were very good and did not put a damper in our mood.
