THIS TOUR WAS AWESOME AND MOST DEFINITELY A HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TWO-WEEK EUROPEAN TRIP!!!! Our group of 8 booked this tour due to the awesome reviews on Viator versus a different Vespa tour we had seen online. This did not disappoint. Everyone was so friendly and nice, and we had a ball! We met in the center of Florence and they added another couple to our group to make it an even 10. We were bused from there to the countryside of FLorence in a nice clean bus, and greeted by an awesome instructor sorry I forgot his name who showed us the facilities where we would be eating later that evening, followed by a brief lesson. My husband and I were able to purchase sandwiches at the restaurant, which was nice, since we did not have a chance to eat prior to leaving the city. For the lesson, each driver had to ride the Vespa in a tight circle to determine if you had the ability to ride alone. I was the only female in our group that decided to ride and that was a bit intimidating, but it was something I did not regret! With our group of 10, the lesson took about an hour. Unlike our assumptions, there is no wine tasting during the tour, which is probably best, but you do get a meal and two wines at the end when arriving back to the location. We drove about 3-4 hours in total, and got to see the most beautiful scenery throughout. Our group was followed by a small golf cart? and this made you feel more comfortable to know someone was there in case anything happened. You were also able to store your shopping bags in the vehicle if necessary. I have no prior experience driving a Vespa, so trust me, if I can do it, anyone can. Don't be afraid ladies..just take your time and enjoy every minute. You won't regret it!
Had a fun day out and enjoyed some beautiful scenery in the Chianti region. Riding pace was relaxing and to enable some new inexperienced riders to keep up. The tour of the winery was enjoyable and the lunch provided was very generous and good quality. Highly recommended but my only complaint was that as I was riding, I had to concentrate on the road more that the stunning view. I think that pillion passengers get the better deal here :
Matteo and Mateo were great guys, informative tour, extremely fun vespa tour started with training for all skill levels. Highly recommend!
Great tour and delicious lunch! The vespas are a bit more challenging than I had thought, but we managed to learn quickly and had a great time!
Had a great time. I think this will be the highlight of my experiences in Italy. If you are so inclined, this is a must do.
This was the best part of my 2 week getaway in Italy. The tour itself was ok, but the spectacular views! Couldn't get enough of it. You get to drive the vespa for a good 3 hours through the Tuscany/Greve region. It can get a bit chilly in the afternoon. The food was also really good!
It started raining shortly after the tour started. The staff switched us to a van and gave us an absolutely great tour. The guides were personable, knowledgeable and friendly. Of our four tours in Italy, this was my favorite.
Awesome experience---was not prepared for the hours of Vespa riding, but we did get plenty of time to take in the sites and hills of the beautiful Chianti Wine Region. One suggestion may be if individuals are riding double, they practice with two aboard before taking off!!
This was the best tour!! A do not miss! Our guides were helpful and knowledgable! The vespa's were easy to ride and easily one of the best days of our Italy trip!!!
