Was such a fantastic tour - you shouldn't visit Tuscany without using this tour company. Meeting point in Florence was easy to find. Van ride to Tuscany to meet our vespa guides was a pretty quick one. Guides could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Very patient while teaching us how to ride a vespa. They even stopped to let us take pictures when we spotted a herd of sheep. And took pictures and videos for us while we were on our vespas. Top it all off - we even stopped for gelato. And since it started to pour mid-tour, they gave us the choice of continuing on vespa or sending the support van for us. We continued (with their supply of ponchos) and had a great time. Winery tour was also a nice. It was a great way to see Tuscany, and a great tour group to do it with.

Beyond amazing!!!! My husband and I were on our honeymoon and it was easily the coolest day of the trip. It rained and it was pretty cold, but not one of us in our group cared. It was truly a blast. The guides were fun and knowlegable. Yes the wine tour was short (hello you are driving vespas on winding tuscan roads anything more would be preposterous), but it was very informative and interesting. Tom was very passionate about the wine and that made it more enjoyable than just the run of the mill tour. We absolutely loved this tour, would recommend it to anyone, and would do it again in a heart beat!

My very favorite tour in Florence! Do this! It only took me about 15 minutes to get my 'scooter legs' and I didn't wreck the scooter! Fantastic way to see the Tuscany region!

What can I say, this Vespa adventure was just AWESOME. Our guide was Jacobo, and he was GREAT. It ended up only be two couples in our ride and Jacobo made it so much fun. We saw great sights up close. There is nothing like being out in the open as you tour the beautiful Tuscan country side. I would do this again. This is a must adventure

A must do if you like the Tuscan countryside is a day winding your way around on a little vespa scooter. It was awesome. The guides were so knowledgeable, the little deli we stopped for cafe was inviting and friendly. A little further on we went to a former home of the father of modern political theory - Machiavelli and then to lunch at the Fattoria delle Corti San Casciano winery was a photographer's delight. The only frown would be having to pay for the gelato at our afternoon stop. Not because it was an added amount to the day, but the fact that such a small amount was not added to the tour cost up front!!! The Italian/Aussie who took us through the Fattoria delle Corti San Casciano winery really knew his "stuff". In fact he made the day outstanding for us all. If you are in two minds of whether or not to take this tour - DO IT. You will not be disappointed. Value plus and educational as well as scenically awesome. Thanks.

Of all the trips I booked through Viator, this one was my favorite. I loved zipping along the small roads, seeing the vineyards, and stopping for a light meal. Book in advance so you can have one Vespa per adult, otherwise your little scooter may struggle to keep up with the others!

This tour was AWESOME! My friend ended up deciding she didn't want her own vespa, so they allowed her to ride on the back of my scooter with me. The two guides were awesome and the weather was perfect. We stopped at a number of places and learnt about the wine and the region. Had a really nice lunch and tasted two wines. Awesome day trip. The only thing is that the viator voucher did not specify what time we had to meet. It had the location and specified to be there 15 minutes before the meeting time, but there was no meeting time! We ended up getting there an hour early, not a big deal, but would have been nice not to have wasted an hour sitting there waiting.

A memorable fun day for my wife and I.
The staff were great and ensured everyone would be safe to ride and have a fun day. Unfortunatly a couple of riders did not pass the safety riding test at the beginning but got to ride in the Tuk-Tuk support vehicle. They were having a ball and could take photos as we drove around the small back roads of the region.
Lunch at the Chateau was a real suprise as we did not expect to be inside the beautiful building for lunch.
The smell of the wines that had been poured out to breath prior to our arrival, filled the room with a lovely aroma. The food was nice and there was plenty of it.
This was our second visit to Florence in the past 2 years, and this day trip was a absolute highlight.
Don't visit Florence without doing this day trip.

One of the highlights of my six week holiday to Italy was this tour with a fantastic group of people. At all times safety was paramount and the guides were diligent in ensuring all riders were confident and capable before heading off (mind you a Vespa is very easy to ride but it's all about being safe on the road). Ours was a small group of 7 bikes and after having checked our abilities, the group headed off. I was pleasantly surprised at how long we were actually on the bikes before we stopped for some authentic bread, cheese, ham at a local deli. Back on the bikes for another good length of time before reaching our destination, a beautiful winery for lunch. There we also got a fantastic and informative tour of the winery and learnt how wine is made and stored before it was back on the bikes again. Our guides were fantastic, always ensuring everyone stayed together and that everyone was feeling confident and safe. A few fantastic photo stops along the way provided the perfect memories from the day. I can highly recommend this as a fun day out in the Chianti countryside. Really well organised day that was great fun for everyone.
