Lots of wine, minimal food

Riding the vespas were so fun and of course you can’t go wrong with Italian countryside. That being said, there were issues along the way. 1. Tour guides didn’t keep the large family unit we traveled with in-check, therefore we ran late and had a lot of waiting on them, the “lunch” is shown in pics. That was lunch for 8 adults, we left hungry. The winery salesman was incredibly aggressive, very off-putting.

The Vespa tour was so fun! Beautiful scenery through the Tuscan countryside on not very busy roads. Multiple guides come with you on the tour. They were all entertainung and knowledgeable. The driving test takes a bit of time to get through if there are inexperienced drivers, but it was nice to see the guides take their time with people who weren't as comfortable, and those who weren't safe to drive on their own were able to ride with a guide who provided them with information about the area during the ride. The two wineries were also great, especially the second one where you have lunch with your wine tasting. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
Samantha_W
, Nov 2019
We had a great time on this tour during our recent visit to Florence. The team, Johnny and Claudia, were so hospitable, informative and fun. Claudia was so patient trying to teach me how to ride a vespa, which I eventually gave up in favor of letting my boyfriend do all the work :). They let us and several others in our group switch to riding together without a fuss, which I really appreciated. Once we were on the road it was so fun and easy and we had a beautiful time riding through and stopping at various spots in Tuscany. The wine tasting and lunch was delicious and a great way to end the experience before traveling back to town. Will recommend this experience to others and hopefully take the tour again during our next visit.
