One of the "must to do" in Florence! Drivig a vespa through the Tuscan hills and vineyards is amazing! Then, the lunch at villa... really a great experience!

We joined a number of other parties on the trip, with a total of 14 guests. Staff appeared flustered with organisation and planning on most elements other than ensuring payment and additional insurance up front. Having established that all but 2 of us were reasonably confident on scooters, the guides unfortunately concentrated their attentions and all allotted time on refresher... More

After much deliberation (between this and hiring motorbikes ourselves) we opted for the guided tour. The day didnt start too well - some other members of group struggled with mopeds and I'll say no more. Eventually got going. Feeling sorry for those that weren't able to ride, my husband and I took some of them as pillion passenger. They were... More

We had the best day in Florence touring the city and the countryside on our Vespa! Two people can fit easily, my husband is a big guy, so it was great having him drive and just being able to enjoy the ride. Be mindful of the pedestrian only areas! We got into a bit of a misunderstanding with some very... More

Worth every cent! Amazing tour. I had never ridden a Vespa or motorcycle before and found it pretty easy to get the hang of after the training session. The day is so much fun! Amazing views, lovely lunch, and great staff! Would highly recommend it, so glad we did it.

We signed up for this tour based on the recommendations of other Trip Advisor people and they were absolutely correct about how great it would be. Our tour guides were Martine & Steve and they were wonderful. We met in the center of the city early in the morning, and were taken by van to a camp sight where the... More

Riding a Vespa was a "must do" on my Italy list but I wasn't sure about a guided tour. I worried we would over pay for something that would be boring and short. My husband convinced me a tour was the way to go and he was right. The staff was helpful and attentive. We booked our tour for the... More

Myself and my wife spent a few days in Florence and we were determined to find a way to explore the Tuscan countryside. Upon assessing our options we found 'Tuscany by Vespa' under the FlorenceTown banner. We booked and without a doubt it was one of the outstanding highlights of our trip. We registered online, met at the FlorenceTown offices... More

scooters are a great way to experience the flavor of Tuscany! I went with a friend, both in our 60s, & neither one of us had ridden a scooter. It is easy enough to learn the basic mechanics. Having said that, I think it helps if one is accustomed to at least riding bicycles in traffic, as cars do come... More
