I went on the Fiat tour with my parents in April after they had raved about doing it together a few years ago. Everyone else in the group rode the vintage Vespas, but the three of us hopped into the Fiat and enjoyed a lovely morning through the Florence countryside, stopping at a vineyard/olive grove and then for a lovely lunch overlooking a great panoramic view. Christian was a wonderful guide, sharing all sorts of insights about the local agriculture, history, and his experiences living in Florence. And he was very attentive to ensure everyone felt comfortable driving before we set off, and maintained a steady pace to allow everyone to follow along in at a safe distance on the narrow and climbing roads. We had a blast, and I highly recommend this day activity for anyone who wants to spice up their exploration of Florence and is ready to brave driving one of the Vespas or Fiats!

We went on a Vintage Fiat 500 tour with our teenage sons and my wife's family in April after her brother had said it was the highlight of their time in Florence in 2019. The group met up in Florence at 8.30am, walked a short distance to a luxury bus which drove some 15 minutes into the countryside to the warehouse where the company operates its Fiats and Vespas from.

The 7 of us were driving in the Fiat 500s whilst the rest of the group were doing a Vespa tour.

We left in 3 cars with Christian our guide in a fourth up front. We drove up and down narrow, stone walled road and villages through the Florence countryside, stopping at a vineyard, some viewing spots, a wonderful church and finally a lovely lunch overlooking a view of the city.

Christian was a great guide and he shared stories of the Chianti wine region. We would highly recommend this 5-hour tour.

If you want a true Italian activity you need to do this tour. Driving a manual vintage Fiat is a truly unique Italian experience.

Cris our tour guide was outstanding with his energy, interaction and knowledge. If you get Cris as your guide you won the lottery!

Our tour was a mix of Fiat and Vespas. We were the only Fiat driving all the rest were Vespas. The drive along the narrow stone wall lanes made the experience so much better!!

Stops were an olive grove /Chianti vineyard and then onto the oldest church built in 1004 high above Florence with views that are second to none….A must location if you want a full painting picture of Florence .

At end of tour you go to their private property where they also have pasta making classes. We had a superb lunch - pasta, charcuterie , fresh mozzarella and Chianti- WOW! This is not your standard tour lunch it was delish and came with a view.

Do this tour you will be happy you did!

Christian helped make our Florence experience memorable! My husband and I traveled throughout Italy with our two young children ( 8 and 5 years old) and they were so excited for their Fiat tour. They were the only kids on the tour but Christian made sure it fun and educational for them. The whole group was inviting and it was great to get to meet people from all around the world! My kids can not wait to travel more and still talk about how awesome the tour was. I highly recommend this tour with or without kids. We were taken to scenic views throughout Tuscany and even had to maneuver through the streets of Florence in a super fun classic Fiat. Everywhere we drove people would stop and wave because of the group of Fiats brought joy to everyone! This was the best tour we took in Italy and when we come back for a visit we are definitely doing it again!

(Our tour was pre-covid)

It was a very good experience. Driving with these vintage Fiats was a lot of fun. The guide takes you through very narrow roads around Firenze.

The price is very good. You get an amazing experience and the food and wine at the restaurant are delicious.
We ordered 3 cars in advance, but there was a little doubt that everyone would fit in.
So one day before the tour we ordered an extra car an that was no problem. The price stayed the same.

The Fiats are pretty old. So don't expect it to drive like a modern car.
I have experience in old cars (i own several classic cars) but when you are not used to it, the first kilometers are a struggle.
My Fiat didn't always run that nice. I think the carburetor needed some adjustment
There were also little issues with the other car in our group. Maintenance could be a little better, but it's difficult to do this all the time.
The tour takes you several times along the same roads. Some people in our group didn't mind but when you are experienced, tour driver it's not that much fun.

Hello, We are glad to hear such a nice feedback from someone who is experienced in classic cars. Regarding the few issues with the cars, we spoke with the your guide on the day and he offered if you wanted to swap cars with his, but you said you were happy with yours. The guide also said that he took your party on way more routes than usual tours, since there was just your party on that day, so it is normal that on the way back you have to ride through some of the same routes. Kind regards, Walkabout

We did a Fiat 500 tour with our guide Christian and it was great! We drove allong narrow alleys with a tiny red Italian car, we tasted Chianti grapes and walked through a vinyard. We had pasta lunch with a great view.

Fantastic day with the “Walk About Florence” team! Can’t say enough good things about our experience. Our guide Alex was excellent — personable, knowledgeable, polite, funny, considerate. Driving the Fiat was fun — even though reverse gear was a bit elusive! I would not hesitate to tour with them again and you shouldn’t either!

We took the tour on August 31st 2020 and what a wonderful time me and my mom had driving around Tuscany with the vintage Fiats. Chris was a great guide. He was very patient and informative. It took a few tries to finally get how to turn it on and actually drive it, we laughed the whole time. We are huge Fiat enthusiasts, so it was incredible experience to drive an original one. We stopped at their farmhouse and Carmela made a DELICIOUS lunch of pasta and meats, she is an incredible cook. I took the cooking class back in 2017 and every year I make Carmela's pork recipe for Christmas. Walkabout continues to be the most incredible tour company. Every time I come to Florence I take one of their tours and its always an a life changing experience. See you next time!

Hello! It is a great pleasure to have you on our tours every time you visit Florence. Carmela must feel so proud of you using her recipe and Christian will surely laugh remembering the day spent with you and our vintage Fiat 500. Thank you for sharing this amazing review and see you next time! Kind regards Walkabout

The Fiat 500 self drive tour was one of the best experiences on our Italy vacation. Driving with the cute vintage Fiat 500 through the streets of Florence and out into the countryside was just amazing. Our guide Alberto was entertaining and gave us some key info on the area and the Chianti wines. We drove through quint little streets which felt like a Tuscan movie. Then stopped for great views and photo opportunities and thereafter for a nice lunch consisting of pasta, meats cheeses, bread and local wine and returned to Florence. Great morning out!

My 12 girlfriends and I rented the vintage fiat 500s for the afternoon tour. It surpassed our expectations.
Chris was the best guide and took us to some beautiful sights and view spots and was so knowledgable and fun.
None of us had driven cars that old before but everything was carefully explained and in no time we got the hang of it on the roads.
Everyone agreed that it was one of the best things they have ever done.
The setting for lunch was so beautiful and food was great.
Huge huge thanks to Chris and the team at Walkabout for an excellent afternoon. Absolute 5 star service and would recommend without hesitation!
