Amazing tour!
Fantastic experience! The tour guides Chris and Max were really nice. Riding a vintage Vespa in Tuscany was really fun and the views were amazing. The meal was also very tasty and we got the opportunity to try some Chianti wine.
We highly recommend this tour!

Best day ever!
Hands down the best tour on our 11 day trip! Amazing views, a stop at a 1000 year old church and a beautiful lunch at a Tuscan villa. The chef Carmella was a hoot! She was everything that I would expect from an Italian Mama.
Our guide, Chris was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the area, food and customs. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is visiting Florence. BEST DAY EVER!

Wonderful Experience all the way around!!!
Sep 2021
Tips for future tourist.... One of the best tours to see Siena and a UNESCO site. There is always a little anxiety when traveling on unfamiliar roads in a new country on a unfamiliar Vespa. Rest assured Christian is an amazingly wonderful, patient guide and will make you feel at ease. He is flexible, giving options to help make you feel comfortable, and generally just really wants what is best for his customers. A genuine guy interested in having you have the best experience you can. Can't say enough about Christian and of course Alex!!! Alex maintains all the vehicles and is also a genuine wonderful man that does a great job helping in anyway he can. Taking the time to allow you to feel comfortable before setting out was key. So if you are a little nervous about driving, no worries BOOK THIS TOUR, you won't be disappointed!!!

Other than that.... The ride was so fun, seeing the countryside, overlooking the city of Florence. The meal was delicious, in a beautiful setting. The vineyard information was so interesting. We learned, we drank, we ate, we laughed, we drove and saw amazing sights. Highly recommend this tour.

Christian if you get to read this... Thank you so much. George and I are so grateful for you guys. We had a great time. Sitting in those vintage Fiats and talking about Fiat was George's highlight to the whole 14 day journey of Italy.

Wonderful tour with Christian! took us to all the local gems in the vicinity of Florence.
Drive felt save and well guided. Also there is an option to take a vintage Fiat 500 if driving the Vespa feels unsafe.

For real an experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
An unique experience! You get the real feel of Tuscany while you are on a Vespa. While paying attention to the traffic you can also observe the beauty of the areas. The tour starts with an introduction and "how to drive a Vespa" lesson. The crew is very nice and pays attention to details and makes you feel like you are going on a trip with friends. Our guide was Chris, a very proud citizen of Florence :) , guiding us through the hills and narrowed roads, paying attention all the time for all of us to remain safe in traffic. We have liked his enthusiasm, all the istorical and technical stories about Vespa and Florence. We have also had a stop for a Chianti wine tasting and some delicioas food.

Great fun@
Sep 2021 • Couples
The vespa tour with Chris was a great way to get out of the city and spend a few hours in the Tuscan countryside. We are in our 70s and wanted to have an adventure. My husband had a small motorcycle when he was younger so driving the vespa was easy for him. Besides having a ball on the vespa the stops we made in the vineyards and the incredible view of Florence from the church were amazing. Chris is a very enthusiastic guide and it's clear he likes his job. The lunch we had at the villa was delicious. This is an experience we will remember fondly.

So much fun!
Jul 2021
I was a solo traveler in Florence, and it was fun to go on this tour with a nice group of other people. Christian was a terrific leader. He is a native Florentine, and is so kind and gracious. He taught us how to safely use the Vespas; I'd never ridden any kind of motorcycle before.

The length of the tour, the route, and lunch at the villa were all absolutely perfect. I would go again, and I highly recommend it to others. Everything is well planned and executed.

Fun way to spend a morning in the beautiful Tuscan hills! Christian was great at orienting everyone to their vehicles and leading us on a rural tour of the countryside. There were plenty of stops along the way for education and taking in the sights. The tour ended with a fantastic meal as well.

Christian was very friendly and charismatic, which made the tour even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a little adventure to see parts of wine country.
