This was a great little 4.5 hour run through the Tuscan hills, tour of a winery and a nice lunch back at FlorenceTown site outside Florence. Giacomo, our guide, was engaging, thoughtful and fun. And, as a motorcycle owner, I was amazed at how well the little Vespas did in the hills. Very fun.
What a great way to explore the Chianti Wine region! This tour surpassed all of our expectations, it was fun, adventurous, relaxing, and mesmerizing all at once. The halfway point where you stop in Greve felt so special, and the like lunch/wine tasting at the end was the cherry on top with delicious, fresh food and good wines.
One of our favorite activities during our trip to Italy. Great guide, great sites and smells as you ride through the Tuscan countryside. Do this!
Fantastic tour! We were fortunate to have perfect weather. Am planning on coming back to Florence in a few years and will probably repeat a vespa tour.
Tour was well worth the euros! Guilds were friendly and very knowledgeable about the region and the wine produced in the area, Tour included a very nice visit to a winery as well as a traditional Tuscan lunch with two local wines after the tour, the Vespa's were in great condition and fun to drive
Absolutely awesome tour we had a group of 10 . 9 motorbikes just fantastic
Excellent riding on the Vespasian thru the Tuscany Valley's and then the wine tour was wonderful
This was my favorite part of our trip to Florence, wonderful way to spend a day.
This was one of the highlights of our tour of Italy! Andrea and Andrea were our guides and made the day perfect! You could clearly feel the love and enthusiasm that had to share for their country and this area. To experience the hills of Tuscany in this way was unique and adventurous yet filled with so much information. The winery tour and trip to the castle added to the beauty. The lunch we were served was simple yet gourmet and highlighted the best the area had to offer. It was a perfect day!
I was very glad we chose a Vespa tour that transported us by minibus into the country. It would be too dangerous to ride out of Florence as a novice rider. I managed to crash twice on the training run so I asked to ride on the back of one of our guides. The problem I had with the scooter was that when you stop throttling it will not automatically reduce to an idle. You need to forcefully throttle back to reduce the power to an idle. I didn't get enough time to master this before things went wrong. I think they should mention it in training. I've never had this problem on mini, quad and motorbikes before. Things didn't go so well for another couple either. We had a great time regardless of most of us not being very experienced. Loved the countryside, the 2 wineries and town we visited and our dinner. The Italian drivers are crazy and it was scary to watch cars taking a lot of risks to pass our group. We would have appreciated being offered more wine to either buy or try. It would have been nice if the guides organised a group photo of us. Our guides/sommeliers were wonderful. We really enjoyed our afternoon in Chianti country.
This tour was awesome! If you have no experience be very careful as the "training" portion before the tour is all of 10 seconds. I personally had riden motorcycles and atvs before(bf had not) and still felt a little hesitant at first, mostly because my boyfriend was my passenger and I weigh 118lbs.
A really super day out with 1st class facilities, equipment and guides.
Well worth it. Tuscany is beautiful and guides very knowledgeable and entertaining. Wine tour was interesting and meal was good. Vespa's were fun to ride.
This was the most amazing fun and one of the best tours we did on our holiday!! The guides were excellent and had great sense of humour that made the event even better. Lunch was to die for!! would recommend this to anyone!!
Wow, what a great day. Even though it rained some we still really enjoyed this tour. The guides are knowledgeable and fun. The views are breathtaking and the vespa bikes are easy to ride and tons of fun. The lunch is not just a little snack ..it's a grand buffet of local dishes and it tasted AMAZING! You also get to sample two of the regions wonderful wines. We highly recommend this tour.
We loved this trip! Federigo and Leo did a great job. Very informative and fun. You should be comfortable driving, I road double with my husband and had a great time. The lunch was very good.
This was my favorite experience of my entire 10-day trip to Italy. First, you have to understand that the Tuscan countryside, Chianti region, is BREATHTAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL and not to be missed if you are in Florence. The tour meets in the heart of Florence and then the 2 guides take the group in a small bus to a charming, small villa in the Chianti countryside where you get to practice riding the Vespa scooters. Our group was small, 5 people, and I was the only one with any experience on a scooter. No problem the guides very quickly taught us ride with confidence. The Vespas are easier to ride than a bicycle! Yes, really. Were rode for hours on charming, small roads. Around every corner is another amazing view of vineyards, villas, monasteries, etc. The wineries we visited, including Ruffino, were interesting and beautiful. Our guides, Andreas and Lorenzo were always nearby, watching us ride and were so knowledgeable about the reqion and the winemaking process. Andreas had grown up on a nearby farm! After the ride, we enjoyed a very nice lunch, included some delicious cheeses, balsamic vinegar and 2 Chianti Classico wines from Ruffino. The 6-7 hour duration of the tour was long enough for some, but I could've jumped on the Vespa again for the rest of the day the tour was THAT GOOD! Regardless of whether you have any experience on a scooter, this tour is not to be missed. If I go back to Florence, I will do it again and recommend it to everyone who goes.
fantastic! !!!! it was the perfect day. .our tour guides were fun and knowledgeable. .the food and wine was really good. .highly recommend this tour
