This tour was the MOST fun we had for 2 weeks in Italy. Nicolo and David are great guides. They are patient and make sure that you understand how to correctly drive the cars. Nicolo would run interference on the road to ensure we could stay together and work well in daily traffic. Speaking of daily traffic: The other drivers were respectful on the road to these cute vintage cars. They exemplify Italian pride. If you can drive stick - you can drive these cute little cars. The countryside is beautiful and it is great to get out of the city! We had the picnic afterwards. David was great company, the food was delicious, the olive oil and wine, both made at the villa, were so good!! Do this great tour, you won't regret it.
This was a fantastic day!! My favorite thing we did in all of Italy. David our guide was fun, easy to understand and very personable. The lunch was wonderful and we soooo enjoyed the wine. Purchased wine and they shipped it home for us. Arrived in perfect condition. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the Tuscan countryside.
We had the best time on this tour with our amazing guide Nicolo!!! It was just me, my boyfriend, and Nicolo. We really became friends with him we couldn't have asked for better guide!! The tour was amazing, we rode around Tuscany and he offered to take pictures of us wherever we stopped. The villa was GORGEOUS but it was raining so we couldn't swim. Just when we though it couldn't get better, the wine tasting just as great! The wine was incredible and all made at the villa. There was also incredible food. This was the best tour we have ever been on and we plan on coming back!
OMG, so much fun. Be sure you feel comfortable driving a stick. The lunch was a lot of fun too.
great experience, lots of fun, wonderful guide....
would highly recommend this experience !!
what a fun few hours we had driving those gorgeous little cars through beautiful scenery. Tour guide so friendly and helpful and keen to help us take good photo shots. lunch amazing and at a beautiful setting with a lovely swimming pool. great to escape the city as well. Fun and well worth doing : :
This was a great although there was a wedding booked in at the villa, so rather than sitting by and enjoying the pool we were put into the wine cellar which was actually quite nice and cool in comparison to outside however, not what we were expecting. And although Viator will let you book the wine making session, it is not available until August at the earliest so we were disappointed we weren't able to do this. However this wasn't the fault of the company that ran the tour, rather that of Viator
The service the company ran I could not recommend enough! The starting location is very easy to find, taking about 30 mins on the bus from central Florence and very simple to find and navigate. We were given a quick run down on the cars and the dreaded double clutch it's simple once there's been a demonstration given and a quick test drive in the private grounds and then we were off! At a good pace and following as a convoy it was a truly unique experience! Although our little Topsy broke down half way through these are classic vintage cars don't forget we were able to swap and drive a different car so we didn't lose out on the experience. Then the food afterwards was great too with the opportunity to buy some of the wine made there at the villa, all in all a very unique experience.
This trip was fantastic. Very well organised, the cars were in fantastic condition and the views driving around Tuscany were exceptional. The lunch was very nice, lots of local fresh produce and plenty of wine to wash it down! We had a good chat and laugh with the other people on the tour.
The double clutch took a bit of getting used too but after that it felt really special to be driving around Tuscany in a piece of history. Especially with the excellent music playing to accompany us!
Amazing tour... The guide was great, the food... views.. wine and grounds were fantastic. Highlight of our trip... as we had many. You will never forget this one. The cars are too much fun!
This trip was one of the highlights of our holiday and would without reservation recommend it to anyone visiting Florence.!!
This tour was a highlight of our trip to Italy! The Fiat 500 cars were fun to drive- knowledge of manual transmission is a must. Driving through the Chianti countryside was scenic and the picnic at the villa afterwards was fantastic! Highly recommend this tour.
Nikko was great- and driving the fiat was an experience in and of itself! Definitely recommend doing this!
As others have also said this was the highlight of our time in Tuscany. The guys were great, the cars were great, the group was great and the meal including the wine was superb. Double clutching was quite easy and adjusting to driving on the right was not a problem either.
This was one of our favorite parts of our vacation!! Our guide David was soooo cool and very knowledgeable about the vintage fiats. The lunch in the villa was perfect! The food was amazing and the wine was some of the best we tasted in Italy. It was such a great experience. Totally worth every penny
Pepe, our guide was excellent! He is educated in wine-making and olive oil production. The drive was fun, informative and adventurous. We loved our Fiat 500 named Giacamo and the lunch at the Tuscan Villa was amazing. We would do this again and highly recommend this Tour.
We had a great, relaxing time driving around the Chianti Region with Pepe and his cars. What terrific views, friendly conversation, and interesting information. Ending at the beautiful home surrounded by the pool and more gorgeous views, our host provided lovely and tasty Italian snacks, pasta, and wine. Highly recommended!
Best tour ever! We had sooooo much fun! This is a very orininal and unique way to enjoy Tuscany. The picnic poolside at the villa was just what we needed as a mid trip pick-me-up. May want to update the info on the site as several things have changed and we were more than a little confused/concer
Driving vintage Fiats along the Chianti countryside was a wonderful experience that my husband and I will always cherish. My only complaint was that after talking to another family who was also on our trip, was that they paid 240 Euros for a family of four through tripadvisor, and we paid 350 US dollars for the exact same tour through Viator. One other suggestion would be to bring bug spray as I got 34 mosquito bites when we at our lunch poolside.
