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.
This was a fantastic day. Even though the weather was not very summery, the tour was well worth doing and thoroughly enjoyable. Both guides were very helpful and continually checked that all with well with individuals in the group. Thank you!
The tour was everything it was described to be and more. Pickup was on time in a nice car. The Vespa itself was in good condition. The tour guide Chiro was awesome. He was friendly and enthusiastic and made us feel comfortable and at ease. The route was well arranged. i loved it.
One of our favorite tours. A lot of fun riding around the country side. Everything went as scheduled. The guides were great.
Travelled to Siena specifically to join this tour and was not disappointed . We were picked up from our hotel which was a pleasant surprise as our hotel was a 25 euro ride from the centre of Siema . For that we were very grateful. After the obligatory paperwork which took a little longer than anticipated we set off for what turned out to be an awesome day. The tour guides have a great energy and fun sense of humour. The lunch at the winery was particurlarly tasty and the scenery was breathtaking. It is a full day of fun and would encourage others to try it for themselves.
An incredible and fun tour that I would definetely recommend for those interested in seeing another side of the Chianti and experiencing a part of the Italian lifestyle at the same time! This was one of the most fun tours I have done whilst visiting Italy and would definetely do it again!You spend a full day riding your vespa with multiple stops for sightseeing, lunch and photo opprtunities. The tour is completely safe as you are given a training session and safety precaution tutorial. We ate a delicious lunch in a stunning winery. The tour guide stopped at a beautiful vineyard and set up the vespa so we could take brilliant 'touristy' photos, great idea! We visited the little village of Monterregioni and had gelato. A great day out! Only issue was the private transfers for Siena were 45 minutes, so it would have been nice to be contacted about the time delay, but this didn't spoil the day. Thank you for an excellent day out Viator!
This tour was highly enjoyable. We loved riding through Chianti countryside and we felt perfectly safe and in good hands, under the guidance of Ciro and Carlo. This was one of the highlights of our trip!
Fabulous day! Wonderful, entertaining and knowledgeable guides. The stops were magnificent and so informational. The winery stop couldn't have been nicer with great food and wines. It was the highlight of our 19 day tour of Italy!
Excellent tour and guides! They made sure everyone was comfortable riding their vehicle prior to departing for the hills. Two guides came with us to discuss the history of the small towns, to escort us to the wineries, and generally keep us safe and make sure we were not experiencing any problems. They were both very friendly and everyone could tell they really enjoyed what they're doing. Plus the price is right for all you receive, including hotel pick-up! Complimenti My Tours!
This tour was incredible. The sights sounds and beautiful aromas of the Tuscan countryside made this tour seem like something out of a dream. This tour is not for the faint of heart and the ability to ride a motorcycle or at least be comfortable on one could make or break this tour.
Fantastic tour ! Staff were extremely helpful and courteous . You tour some absolutely beautiful country !
The lunch stop at the winery was perfect . The two additional stops were also great but time was limited to tour them. I would definitely rate this trip at the least a 9 out of 10
Just plain fun! Wish we could have driven a bit faster but I understand why we needed to go slower. Family run winery was lovely. Could have used a bit more structure when the guide was telling us things about the area - the group was often spread out a bit too much for good hearing by everyone of the stories. Information about where to find toilets would have been helpful!
This tour is a must. Our guide was relaxed and good fun. Best way to see the countryside
