What a fun time, zipping around the Chianti countryside after a 15-minute lesson on how to drive these things! The young guys were patient with all us tourists who had never ridden one before! The food, wine-tasting (only two different bottles), visit to a shop where we tasted olive oil that they produced and sold, all made for a fun excursion.
We had such a fun time on this tour! This should be a must for everyone!!!
This tour was great! Guides were friendly and patient. The scenery was breathtaking and the wine and dinner were delicious!
Wonderful experience! I would do this again! The team was very helpful and patient- great way to see Tuscany...
This was our favourite tour of our whole trip through Italy! We had so much fun and met a great bunch of people. I would definitely do this again
Jean Luca was a great and extremely friendly tour guide. We had a great time. Wish there was a little more wine tasting in drinking involved but probably for the best with the vespas. Great tour!
So easy to do and so much fun! I was a solo traveller and had never ridden a scooter before. As long as u have a reasonably confident attitude - as simple as cycling. Great stop for food and wine at the end of tour. A half day was perfect timing IMO. Nice blend of independence and social - brilliant
A brilliant day on the Vespa touring the Tuscan countryside. Had a great group of people which made it even better. Lunch was fine and the visit to the winery was great. Highly recommend it.
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.
