One of the best tour ... Steven our guide was fabulous ... He was friendly, knowledgable , helpful and just a gem...
This trip was fantastic! There were multiple tours being set up at the same time, but our group was organized and shown into our transport van quickly and efficiently. We were taken to the starting point of the tour and checked out on the scooters and made a few quick circuits to make sure everyone was comfortable on the road.
We rode through the Tuscan countryside, stopping to take pictures and learn about the Chianti region, then went to a beautiful winery to learn more about Chianti production and to taste some excellent wines. We then went to a very nice local restaurant for a traditional Tuscan lunch.
The guides were knowledgeable and considerate throughout. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get out of the city for a few hours and really enjoy Tuscany.
As a side note, while the Italians have a (not undeserved) reputation for aggressive driving in town, they are more accustomed to sharing the road with scooters than American drivers are, and I felt completely safe at all times.
One of the best tours we took while in Italy! The tour guide was fantastic, scenery beautiful and riding the Vespas a great time! Definitely a must if you're in this area while on vacation!!!
Wow! This is one of the best things we have done. A small group and 2 brilliant guides, provided for a fantastic day. Martine (hope I remembered the name correctly) and her colleague made sure everyone had an amazing time. The Vespa riding was awesome, and there was just the right amount. The visit to the winery was interesting and it was great to taste the lovely wines. The lunch was tasty, authentic and fun. If you do nothing else when you are in Florence, make sure you do this tour.
Fantastic tour and lots of fun! The views were stunning and the staff were so friendly.
It was an amazing day! Even though it was a little grey outside and it got cold on the scooters, it was still breathtaking. Because I read the reviews before, I wasn't surprised by the extra costs of insurance and such. The wine and olive oil tasting was great and lunch was delicious. I would absolutely recommend this tour and now I want a scooter.
I absolutely loved this tour! It made me feel free riding a vespa on the Tuscan countryside. The views of the Chianti region are stunning, and we did a few stops on the way to take really cool pictures on the vespas. We went for lunch to a winery, and the guide was really knowledgeable and explained to us all about how they produce the wines and the different types of wines. The lunch was really tasty, and we also did a tasting of the couple of red wines they produce at the winery. A perfect day out in the countryside, definitely recommend it!
I had wonderful experience on this Vespa tour. It was great to see Italian countryside, visit the winery, and enjoy great lunch. The guides are also did a great job.
Best tour ever! We had such as great fun. The ride around the Chianti region is just amazing and lunch was delicious. Our guides Jacopo and Marco were very responsible, informative and friendly. Definitely a must do if you are in Florence! Highly recommended :) Sandra
Loved it. First time riding one and no problem at all. I went with my best friend from school......we are now in our 50's, so if you have no experience and are a bit worried, give it a go, if you're not confident after your trial ride you can ride in the tuk tuk, but we wished we could have done much longer or even more tours on the vespa/scooter it was brilliant!!!
We took the tour to the Chianti region on october 7th, and we really had an amazing day, even though it was pouring rain on us.
The guides are extremely knowledgeable and very funny. You get on a Vespa, ride for about 30 minutes, then you stop, and the guides explain you how they make wine and olive oil, etc., then you ride for another 30 minutes before stopping in a local bakery and coffee shop (bar), then you ride again and have several other stops like these in various villages to enjoy the sights.
You will also visit a vineyard and taste the wine and olive oil they make while eating various pasta and risotto. The food, olive oil and wine are all very good and fresh.
Overall an extremely good experience, definitely recommended!
Perhaps the most fun thing we did on our two week trip to Italy. Loved seeing the Tuscan countryside on a beautiful day and riding scooters is just fun, period. The guides were great, sharing local knowledge and stopping at great local spots.
Great day out! The country side was amazing and the food and wine devine. A great tour to do if you want to get out of Florence and experience a little bit more.
The tour was awesome! Our tour guides were very friendly, informative, had great English, and we're fun! The stop at the deli was amazing. Try the head cheese!!! As we spent most of our days walking from site to site throughout Europe this was a great change of pace. Expensive, but worth it!!!
Not kidding, the best thing we did in Italy! Vespa's winding thru Tuscan vineyards, stopping to taste the grapes and a Tuscan market, winery tour with lunch and wine tasting is as good as it gets. Our guides Martina and Matteo were so nice and knowledgable. JUST DO IT!
This was so much fun! Our guide Joseph was great and he knew a lot about the region, grapes, winery and the wine making process. The scenery was beautiful! Be aware that you will encounter traffic on your ride but don't let that stop you. It was a very memorable, fun experience!!!!
So great, we had a blast! Our guide Joseph was fantastic and really knew his stuff . The scooter ride was a lot of fun with beautiful scenery right out of the movies! The Corsini winery tour was interesting and the meal there was fabulous! The Corsini Chianti was so good we bought several bottles. This was tons of fun, an excellent value and a must do!!!
This trip was amazing!!!!
We did not have any experience in driving Vespas, and had no trouble whatsoever, our guides were great teachers! The tours, food and wine were excellent (as well I was accommodated for my Gluten allergy, and was still able to enjoy a fantastic meal!!) My husband and I are wine enthusiasts and were able to learn and discover new wine and olive oils from the Tuscan region; we were also able to make friends from around the world!
The whole day was fantastic and I would recommend to anyone!!
This was a very fun, informative, well-planned trip. The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Safety was important. The lunch was EXCELLENT!!!! For both my kids, it was the best experience of our two week stay in Italy.
A perfect day, fantastic fun. Loved every minute of the day. Our guide was great, very funny. We had a small group so it was easy to navigate around the area. Lunch was delicious! Overall a highlight of our trip, would definitely recommend this one.
