PICKUP IS NOT FROM FLORENCE!! PLEASE CHECK BEFORE YOU BOOK.
Suyasha_L, Oct 2022
Please check the pick-up point.. we were never told that we have to reach Siena at 9:30 am for a departure... The title says from Florence and they NEVER booked that for us, which should have been INCLUDED.. a Very bad experience, and we are hoping to get a refund because this was a scam. PLEASE CLEAR EVERYTHING OUT WITH VIATOR. We had to cancel this experience because of this company not making our booking clear.
Our Day On A Vespa (Not)!
Thomas_S, Sep 2022
It began with a failure to pass the Vespa driving test. A little unfair as, unless you have been on a motorbike recently, you most likely will fail! We wound up in a 1960’s vintage Fiat 500 following the pack of Vespas. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone but we got the best deal - no cold hands, no bugs in your teeth and free hands to take lots of photos! I do think it would be a good idea for the tour company to indicate that you would need to pass a driving test in order to participate.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Dear Customer, it is so nice to know that you enjoyed this journey with us . We wish to have you back to experience more tour together. P.S we will take in consideration your suggest Best Regards my tour in Italy
Nightmare Tour, nightmare company
Teri_B, Sep 2022
A nightmare. Our Vespa and Wine tour was supposed to be the highlight of our trip. I asked before booking what happens if it rains (the forecast said 90% chance) and they said a full refund would be permitted. Our tour was rained out and the company could not provide alternative because they didn’t have one for the large group. They refused to offer a full refund like they had promised. Also, just a warning that vespas are incredibly dangerous. (My party all signed waivers and knew and were happy to take the risk). In the morning, about 15 minutes into the tour and the couple in front of us got in a terrible accident with a local transport truck, it was traumatizing for every member in the group. I was right behind the accident and I will remember the horror of what I saw my entire life. We waited for ambulance for over nearly two hours and the company did nothing to comfort the rest of the group. Not even offered a bottle of water. Extraordinary circumstances do happen but this company failed at handling this experience. The rain poured heavily and made it unsafe to continue, they couldn’t provide an alternative and we were denied any kind of refund. Would never trust this company again, ever.
Vespa tour awesome
Rachel_W, Jun 2022
Great time and our guide gave us extra time to explore. Several stops and a good lunch. Exactly what you think of when you think of Tuscany.
Great way to explore the Chianti!
Linda_B, Aug 2021
We had a lovely tourguide named Lucca. We wouldn't have minded a somewhat higher pace than 30km/h. The winetasting and lunch were great!
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you for your feedback. We're glad you spent a lovely time with one of our best tour leaders. Thank you and have a nice journey in Italy!
Experience of a lifetime
Leevania_N, Sep 2020
Matt, our guide, is an excellent instructor - in spite of my poor Vespa driving skills. The tour itself is BREATHTAKING. It basically convinced us to change our tickets and stay in Florence for longer. This tour is a must for those with a taste for adventure!
Nice and funny Vespa tour
Matthijs_B, Sep 2020
We had a great Vespa tour by our guide. Learned us how to ride the Vespa, showed us around in the area + gave a good Wine tasting. Funny and pleasant chats with the guides. Highly recommended!
Vespa tour and lunch
cristenat, Nov 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Staff were helpful and friendly. Countryside was beautiful, as was the lunch at the winery. Would highly recommend this tour.
super fun and scenic
robyn_o, Oct 2019
great tour! before you all leave they make sure you can ride/drive the vespa in the parking lot. I will admit it was rough driving in the small driveway they have you practice in , but it was so easy and fun once you get on the road. If you dont pass the test, they have other options to accomadate! Winery was great and the little small towns you stop in were great!
Amazing!
Sheila_S, Oct 2019
This tour was the highlight of our trip to Florence! My husband had a blast riding the vespa through the countryside! The views are absolutely breathtaking, just don't get distracted if you are the driver. Some of the roads we went on had a bit of traffic, with tons of cars trying to overtake us. It will definitely help to have some experience riding a bike.
Vespa to a Tiny Fiat
John_P, Oct 2019
A great tour! I'm not a Vespa driver, at least that's what I quickly learned during the lesson portion before the tour. Had a bit of difficulty getting accustom to driving and steering a Vespa. So my tour guides recommended me to the tiny Fiat as an alternative. I can drive stick so it was no problem. The tour was simply excellent as we drove through the country side. We stopped for some great wine, a light lunch, later for some gelato, a medieval castle and even a picture perfect, postcard like photo-op on a long cypress lined vineyard road! To take in the Tuscan country side on a Vespa, or even a tiny Fiat, is tour you will never forget.
Wonderfull
rmcelroysue, Aug 2019
We had the best time. The guys were very knowledgeable snd kind. Best winery snd food. You must do this tour...
Best day ever!!
Roberto_B, Aug 2019
Our Guide Lorenzo was the best. He took us all over the Chianti region. My first experience of riding a Vespa and also visiting such beautiful places, people. It was an absolute joy. You could not wipe the smile from my face all day. Thank you again Lorenzo for making this experience memorable
Vespa Tour
Cassandra_S, Jul 2019
The panoramic view of the wine country was unforgettable and absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed riding on the Vespa and our lunch/ wine tasting was fabulous as well. It was rather a slow start because it took them 2 hours to check everyone in with authorizing information. We only had the pleasure of visiting one place for our wine tasting the other places were more site seeing and a quick stop for gelato. It would have been nice to have seen more places that made wine and more wine sampling. They were very concerned about our safety and were very friendly.

Andrew_B, Jul 2018
It was raining and cold the day of our tour so we ended up taking the tour in Fiat 500's. Our guide was excellent and we had a terrific time!
Not the best tour. The vespas were...
Rosy M, Apr 2018
Not the best tour. The vespas were not in good shape. We declined renting them and opted for the Fiat 500 instead. The towns are beautiful and worth exploring but this tour was not.
This trip was amazing. It was all...
KATHERINEL_J, Mar 2018
This trip was amazing. It was all day with a great lunch and wine tasting. Everyone was so nice and the views of Tuscany were breath taking. I was too small for the vespa and they accommodated me with a fiat while the others rode vespas and I had a blast. It was nice that I knew how to drive a manuel.
A nice day out with a Vespa ride...
Alison R, Nov 2017
A nice day out with a Vespa ride through the Tuscan country side. Lunch was really good at a local winery.
What a great day out! The Vespas...
Adam_S, Oct 2017
What a great day out! The Vespas were in great condition and easy to ride coming from someone with no prior experience. The route through Tuscany is gorgeous with very little traffic to contend with. Our guide Bill? was great and his enthusiasm for the region is infectious. We also enjoyed the wine tasting lunch break at the beautiful winery.
