“Fun Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

From the time you get there and have your orientation around the cars to when you finish the drive and have a sumptuous lunch at an old villa you experience Tuscany in a unique and fun way.

We loved driving the Fiat through the hills and looking at the beautiful scenery. We loved the food and conversation. Not many tours can bring people together in the way that this one did. We loved it and highly recommend it. Do yourself a favour.

“Fun, Beautiful, Charming - an experience of a lifetime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The hosts were awesome, the cars adorable, the countryside magnificent and the wine tasting and gourmet feast at Tuscan Villa at the finale was sumptuous and delicious. Beppe was very knowledgable and really brought the countryside to life with his stories. This was a perfect way to get off the tourist trail and enjoy a unique experience, we loved every moment of it!

“Very Unique and Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

My husband and I did the Wine Tasting Fiat Tour on our last day in Italy. What a great way to end the trip! Beppe was an awesome guide, and its very fun to drive the old vintage cars. Winding through the countryside in an old Fiat is such a unique way to see Tuscany. At the end of the trip you get to go to an old villa and drink wine and eat bruschetta, cheese and Tuscan cold cuts... it was neat way to end the trip and it was also fun to chat with people from all over the world.

“Now my husband wants a fiat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We took this tour in September and can not say enough about the amazing time they showed us. They were so accommodating and friendly that we were sad when our time was over. The fiats are so fun and that was the biggest smile my husband had our whole three weeks in Italy. He loved driving them so much he is keeping his eye out for an old fiat in the states. From driving the cars through the countryside to our wonderful lunch and wine tasting at the beautiful winery and all the great stories that Andrea shared. It was all perfect! Andrea is the perfect guide for this tour, very friendly and just plain fun!! One of the best things for sure that we did in Italy was go on this fiat tour and we have already told people we know going to Italy it is a must do. Thank you again for a fun filled day :)
