Traveler Tips


Only nit, trial rides on gravel are a bit difficult for many drivers, they might consider paving the test area.
I didn't drive my husband did but it meant better photos and videos.

BellaView…Cool ride
Diane_M, Jul 2022
Beautiful views throughout tour. Nice wine tasting experience. Tour guides will teach you how to ride the Vespa. Very cool driving a Vespa in Italy. Not as easy as it looks and I recommend to those with motor bike experience.
Great experience!
Harvey_H, Aug 2022
Great experience and great guides. Would do it again. My wife and I loved the wineries, the scenery and the ride.

The tour guides were awesome! We had such a blast hooning around the Tuscan hills on authentic Vespas. Couldn’t have asked for a more original experience

Joey_D, Jul 2022
Giuseppe was a great guide for us. The Vespa is challenging at first and is not for everyone. Once we got the hang of it, the trip was enjoyable. Also, bring water! You don’t eat or drink until 4 hrs into the trip and it can be very hot in the countryside.
Beautiful ride
CHRIS_O, Sep 2022
Giuseppe was the greatest as well as other guides. See Tuscany in a different way. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing tour, went with my partner and we shared a vespa. Beautiful views on the vespa ride, spent a good amount of time out on the bikes. Wine tasting was great as well, two lovely wine yards with delicious wine and food.

This tour was absolutely amazing! From riding the Vespas through beautiful scenery to visiting the vineyards and tasting the wine this tour was perfect! Highly recommend signing up for this.
fun!
Charlotte_C, Aug 2022
A highlight of my trip! I’ve been traveling solo and met so many great people here, and the views, food, and wine were incredible. I had no prior vespa or motorcycle experience it was a lot harder than i thought it would be, they said if I didn't feel comfortable I would be allowed to ride with the guide, but I powered through and it got easier as we went!

What a ride! Amazing group! The guide Josep was terrific and me and my fiancé loved every part of the tour ❤️ if you are in florence, this is a must. Everybody was an excelent driver so we got a extra ride for our money. Got to know the olive oil and whine makers of Tuscany. Just that "WOW" factor! 10/10 ☀️
Book this tour!
Marlies_D, Aug 2022
What an amazing experience! (Mat)eo was the perfect host, he was funny, gave interesting comments and brought a lot of joy overall during this tour! I was the only one who booked solo, but he made sure I was feeling good and even took pictures with me and the amazing vieuws of the countryside of Tuscany. The olive oil, wines were of good quality and the lunch was nice and much! Driving the vespa could have been a bit longer but It was a cool and safe experience!
Best trip ever
jrangbaran, Aug 2022
This was the best experience and highly recommend this. I went with my 2 adult children and had an absolutely amazing time. Tomasso was so very patient with Vespa training prior to the ride. He had a great energy and made for a very fun experience. The views are breathtaking from the ride and the winery/olive oil farms.

This tour was so much fun! The route for the Vespa ride was windy and beautiful, great vineyard stops and nice lunch. Wonderful people .
Vespas forever!!
Fanny_L, Sep 2022
Do it! The staff was so welcoming and kind. Vespa ride itself wasn’t too difficult and it’s such a gorgeous way to traverse Tuscany. The wine tour was fine. The second stop is super cool and old.
Fun cruising in a beautiful scenery!

It was unseasonably hot...
Glenn_S, Aug 2022
It was unseasonably hot (102 degrees that day) and they did not turn on the AC on the bus on the first ride, picked us up again for a 20 minute bus ride in a stifling hot bus. We almost left the tour and took a taxi back to the hotel. It was horrible.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Dear Madam, thank you for sharing with us your feedback. I am truly sorry to hear that the tour didn't fully meet your expectations. Since we value our clients and their opinion very much, we've investigated with our operational department and with the driver, to better understand the situation. After our conversation, it came out that our bus is one of the newest vehicle available on the market, and the AC system is brand new and fully functioning. Unfortunately the heat wave Italy has been experiencing during this summer, is unusual and difficult to hinder. You are totally right, and we feel you, when you say it was unseasonably hot, because it was, and the bus is pretty a big vehicle to cool down, and it takes time to do it, considering that kind of temperatures. For this reason we admit that it might have been hot inside, at the beginning, but it was totally outside our control, and this is why we are even more sorry, since we couldn't do more to make your experience better. Hope we'll have the chance, in the future, to have you again on one of our experiences, and change your mind about the quality of our services. In the meantime we remain at your disposal. Kindest regards, Laura Cimino Booking Office Manager
