My son and I went on this tour, each driving our own vespa. It was fantastic!!! The vespas were great and the tour through the Tuscan hills was so beautiful. We took the afternoon tour and enjoyed a really great meal with a beautiful view at a really pretty farmhouse. We even asked for vegetarian meals and they were so accommodating. Our tour guide, Francesco, was awesome, a super nice man and so patient with us. He made the experience even more enjoyable with his friendliness and knowledge, all while making sure we were able to drive safely. We had a blast and highly recommend doing this!!!!
A great way to see Florence surrounding in a classy way. You will drive a vintage Vespa through country side, hills, valleys. Bueautiful scenery, local people. During lunch time you will get to a very nice place with huge garden and views over the hills. You will enjoy typical tuscan food, with antipasti, pasta dish and glass of wine. Best way to take a bit of rest before you head back to the city. Fully reccomend this. If you prefere to drive a car you can hire a vitange Fiat500 with open roof.
I was nervous once I got there and realised that we were one of the few people who had never been on a Vespa, motorcycle or scooter. However, our guide took extra time with us and was very patient. We had a FABULOUS time and this is a must do tour! I am a travel agent and I will be recommending this tour all of my clients!
I liked this more than I thought I would! Our guide was fun and awesome and lunch was waaaaaaaaaay better than I expected. The equipment was nice and since we used early 1980's Vespas, there was no clutch or gears to play with... just gas and brake! We saw some very pretty scenes. If you are on the fence, do book this tour. We did it on a Sunday morning and it was as perfect as could be.
This tour was great! Riding through the Tuscan hills and small towns was beautifully picturesque. Lunch was delious and our tour guide, Angel, was great! Highly recommend this tour!
This was one of the most memorable activities we've done on our trip to Italy. There were three of us who never rode a Vespa or any other motored bike before, along with four or five other parties. Our tour guide Angel was extremely helpful in instructing us in riding Vespa. Although we were a bit nervous even after our initial practice rides, we felt a lot better once we got going on the roads. However, given that a good chunk of the tour involves riding through the city to get to the countryside, this tour is definitely not for the faint of heart. However, if you are brave enough to withstand the nerves, getting to ride Vespa through small towns and the beautiful scenery of Tuscany will reward you with pure joy.
Must do this tour! This was my most favourite experience of Florence, the ride through the back streets and the delicious lunch was great. Matteo our guide was very patient and knowledgable. At first i was a little shakey on the (very cool) vespa, but as the day went on it became easier. BOOK NOW
This was a great tour by Fabian. The vespas were a great way to see the countryside and the views of the city were amazing. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back for the cooking class
We only had one day in Florence. This tour exceeded my expectations and have to admit, the highlight of our 10 day european trip. It was a well spent day in Tuscany with our tour guide Angel. He was fantastic, friendly and outgoing. Before hopping on our Vespa's, we had a brief but formal instruction with the scooters. We then whizzed through Tuscany on off-the-grid paths that took us through scenic hills that I didn't expect. We stopped at panoramic sites that just took my breath away. Unfortunately, the tour had to end, but ended with awesome delight with a delicious Italian meal with wine in a private venue. I've read many reviews on Vespa tours before selecting this one. Well worth it!! You won't regret.
One of the best outings we have ever had.
Loved the bikes, great guide and excellent lunch.
Wish we had booked an all-dayer.
This tour was amazing. I enjoyed every single moment of it. The place were we stopped to eat was incredible. 100% recommended
We spent 10 days in Tuscany and this was our favourite part of the trip! Our guide Matteo was absolutely fantastic! Saw some great sights and views and the lunch was delicious. There is nothing like touring Italy on a Vespa...do it, you won't be disappointed!
Our guide was so passionate about her church.....it was wonderful. ....we loved all the behind the scenes spots we had access to. Highly recommended this tour to anyone thinking about it
Great experience! Felt safe and got to see great views of Florence : Good food too- we got appetizers and pasta!
Highlight of our trip. Great guide (Stephan) great sites, and the lunch is way nicer than you would expect. It and #39;s a 3 course meal in a garden with a lovely view. Riding the Vespa was such a fun time. Highly recommended.
This Vespa tour was lots of fun! Thank you Angel for a wonderful outing.
This tour was our favorite part of our trip to Florence. Angel was our tour guide and he did a wonderful job of showing our group around Tuscany. There was a slight issue with one of the scooters, and Angel was quick to identify it and take care of the problem to keep us moving. The lunch location was absolutely beautiful, as were all of the sights along the ride. I could not recommend this tour more.
Very awesome tour!! Tour guides were friendly and fun, food at lunch was great and views and places visited on this tour were excellent. Only 1 issue though, one of the Vespas kept stalling out, it was actually rather dangerous getting stalled in traffic with this Vespa issue, they did try and fix..
If you are in Florence you really really, I mean REALLY, have to do this vespa or Fiat tour. Not only is it fun but there's something in it for everyone. You get to see parts of the city, drive out to the outskirts and see the field, vineyards, homes, and churches, but you also get a wonderful lunch overlooking the valley! It was honestly a once in a lifetime experience, and you meet really fun and cool people on the way, like other tour-goers and of course Fabian who hopefully is leading you're group because he is fantastic!
I spent an entire week in Italy and this by far is the best memory. Really a stand out experience. I can't rave about it enough. Pro Tip: Bring glasses! If you book this tour you won't regret it!

we had such a great time in these Vespas, Fabio was super fun, the food was really good, highlly recommended.
This was the best 4 hours I spent in Florence! Learning how to ride a Vespa and then taking it through the city and country side! Highly recommend!
