Tuscan beauty
Laura_W, Oct 2023
We greatly enjoyed the tour and being able to see parts of the Tuscan countryside we otherwise wouldn’t. The Fiat 500 we drove had some minor issues and did not drive very fast. You need to know how to double clutch and reversing was a bit challenging. The winery was absolutely beautiful and the wine and snacks were delicious. I would have given the tour 5 stars, but the car issues and the fact that our tour guide didn’t say much gives them a 4.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Dear Customer, Thank you for taking your time and sharing the feedback of your experience with us. We are very glad that you enjoyed the tor. As per the Fiat 500, the vehicles are vintage, that’s why they are a little bit slow and difficult to drive, and you need to know how to drive them well. Wineries are the result of our searching for the best place for our customers to taste wine, and we are happy to know that you enjoyed the time there. Thank you for choosing us to travel through Italy. Hope to have you again in our upcoming tours, in order to give you more good experiences and show you our service improvement, hoping we will get a full star rate next time.

Excellent tour with Stephano and Dimitri. Thet were really great fun and with their excitement and fun you would never guess they did the tour every day. Lorenzo at the vineyard was so passionate and lovely and the "light lunch" was a fantastic three courses. Delicious!

Spend an unforgettable day driving an original and perfectly restored Fiat 500, in the Chianti region. Well, the day was, in fact, unforgettable but probably not the way intended. We started out at the Florence train station, herded into a van for an hour drive outside of the city. Our driver had Bollywood rap on the radio and turned it so we could all enjoy it. Once we got to the start point we were informed that the Fiat drivers had to follow the Vespa drivers. Really??? Suffice to say we never got out of 2nd gear. A lot of the drive time, which totaled maybe 1 3/4 hours of the 9 hour day was spent in first gear following the scooter drivers. After 1/2 hour of paperwork the scooter drivers needed over an hour of instruction, so we stood around outside waiting. That is until we found out there weren't enough 500s to go around, so one couple had to drive a Mini. Off we go to visit a couple of hill towns, then wait until everyone show back up to mount up on their freaking scooters and away we putted. And lunch at a winery....much anticipated until we got to the winery. It was raining so the guides wouldn't let us drive up the hill to the winery, we had to park down below and hike up through the muddy vines to the top. Groovy. Lunch consisted of overcooked pasta with a canned tomato sauce in a plastic tub, some poor grade prosciutto, and some crummy sweets all washed down with their own insipid wines. Not recommended for anyone who actually wants to take a drive in the Tuscan countryside.

Great tour guide and fun little cars! We stopped at a great winery/vineyard for lunch and the views on the entire drive were awesome. Great pit stops at random towns and villages as well...perfect tour!

stephanie h, Sep 2015
Great fun. I am not a wine drinker personally which is ironic since you do a wine tasting but i still enjoyed the food- pasta mostly. the best part was driving the fiats around and seeing the views of chianti and then getting to stop at two towns and also take some quick photos. Our instructors were a good laugh too

Activité extra mais énorme cafouillage au départ de florence :une centaine de personnes partant dans plusieurs excursions différentes ,avec deux guides qui géraient par terre, sur leurs genoux, dans le hall de la gare , les vérifications ,ça c'était pénible ,et exaspérant ,1h30 d'attente !!Mais une fois partis tout parfait, super drôle, très bien organisé et loueur de voiture formidable! Journée sensationnelle à recommander ,ça vaut la peine!!!
