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.

Exciting combination of tour/riding scooters/food and wine.
This was a fantastic combination of touring on scooters, enjoying spectacular views in the hillside, with visiting the historical, beautiful Basilica San Matios al Monte, plus learning a lot about wine and olive oil in the region. The place we stopped at the end to have lunch and wine was just fantastic! Our guide Christian made it most interesting and fun! Highly recommended even if you only have a few days in the area.

Great way to experience the hills of Tuscany
Sep 2021 • Solo
What a great way to explore the hills of Tuscany. Driving a Vespa with our guide in front in a Fiat 500 was truly special. Staff were all very welcoming and gave us a lot of information when we stopped at a Chianti vineyard and at the San Miniato church for an amazing view. We also stopped for some pasta and of course a glass of Chianti winr.

My Tuscan Dream
Aug 2021 • Friends
I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this tour. Our guide Alex was very knowledgeable of the history of Florence, olives and the Tuscan vineyards. The Vespa ride through the valley and hills was nothing short of absolutely beautiful!

Alex did everything he could to make our ride safe and give us the experience of taking in the views, drinking beautiful wines and savoring wonderful Italian cuisine.

I will recommend this tour and Alex to all of my family and friends who might travel to Italy in the future.
