What You Can Expect
This was a highlight for our Italy trip! I have never driven a Vespa, but Dimitri and Francesco made it super easy to learn! We went to lovely sights, had a fabulous wine tasting and just enjoyed the day and the sunshine, zipping along back country roads. Do not miss this!

Joe and Chichi (?) had so much character, humor and wit they really made this day wonderful. I mean we were riding on Vespas through Chianti and it was incredible. The views, the wine tasting, the people we met and the weather was perfect. Everyone should experience this day!
I took the tour around the second week of November, which is the tourism off season in Italy. It was great timing as I was the only person on the tour! My tour guide was Ciro, who is very knowledgeable and has many stories about the Chianti region. One thing to note is that while third party liability insurance is covered, any damaged caused by you to the scooter is not covered in the Viator price, so if you damage the scooter by accident, you are responsible for the cost of repairing the vespa. Because of this they will ask you to leave a copy of your credit card and driver's license with them. Another thing to note is that you will be driving slowly on the equivalent of a small state road in the U.S. It's definitely not a highway, but it's not a sleepy country road either, so you'll need to be comfortable with cars passing you by frequently as you ride. The road winds through hills and bends around blind corners where you can't see oncoming vehicles, so it's best to stay behind the guide. I ride a bicycle through traffic in New York City all the time, so was prepared to handle passing cars but didn't expect the road to be quite that large or busy.
Stops along the way include a small castle town and large fort. Both are ancient, beautiful and quaint. There is plenty of shopping and I got to pick up locally made chestnut honey, olive oil soap, and a jar of really good truffle butter. This was my first trip to Italy and Tuscany and thanks to Ciro and his crew I couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Because it was raining that morning, we were not able to do the Vespas. However, they made other arrangements and we were able to drive either a Fiat 500 or Mini Cooper and we had a great time. They did a good job of making other arrangements with the weather situation.
We really enjoyed this fabulous day in Chianti with our very helpful tour Franceso. The scenery and sight-seeing were gorgeous and the wine tasting and lunch were also terrific. Our best day in Tuscany - would recommend you don't miss it!!!
We had a fantastic day on the vespa tour on Sunday. Great fun and beautiful countryside. The tour guides - Fabio and Dario - were relaxed but also very knowledgeable and helpful. The lunch at the winery was great. The tour was the highlight of our 5 days in Tuscany!
Very enjoyable tour with beatifull scenery. Riding the Vespa's with such a view and hopefully beautiful weather! is really a once in a lifetime-experience!
The best value and experience - fun guides, adequate instruction, perfect itinerary and visits!
Absolutely would do this again. What a blast. We are in our early 50's. And had a great time. Martina did a great job and also was a knowledgable tour guide. I would recommend this to everyone who really wants to see Tuscany wine country.
Definitely book this tour! We had great guides and a great group of people on this tour. Well worth the money.
