riade was great - Alex did an amazing job to get us around the whole tour without anyone getting lost . He was a wonderful guide doing a fantastic job. Start seemed to be very disorganised at the shop/office. Only when Alex took charge did things seem to come together
This was a great trip, great views, tour guide gave great information on every stop we made. Highly recommend this trip, it was super fun!
Let me first say Alberto was an excellent guide. The tour took us above the city for beautiful views. The dinner was presented in such a lovely outdoor venue. We highly recommend.
Well ...this was booked as an afternoon filler ..with no expectation other than a step up from the usual walking tour ...was I wrong!!!! The set up is extremely well done from the booking process, meet n greet, the equipment provided, the actual afternoon out and the guide I won't go into detail about the trip, you should just experience it, but its a full afternoon visiting the surrounding countryside and a couple of landmarks whilst enjoying the freedom of two wheels. There are several stops including lunch/dinner in a picturesque location. All in itself worth the cost ...but for me .. the guide Alex ..was the star.. his passion, knowledge and friendliness shone through. Not just another boring, going through the same old script guide ...but someone who obviously enjoys what he is doing. And why wouldn't you . Tuscan scenery and history... Summer skies ... Motorbiking in the hills and food and wine . Don't hesitate. ..book this tour . ..it will make you smile for several days later
This Vespa tour was so much fun! We took our 18 year old daughter and we all three drove around the city! It is a lot easier if you have previous experience but they do have two different groups depending on skill level! It is the best tour to do if you want to see the outskirts of the city of Florence! The views and the food are amazing!
This was our first visit to Florence, so we wanted to have an experience that also included a tour of the countryside. This was perfect! Our guide, Christian, was wonderful. He did a great job of explaining what to do and leading the group. It was truly a memorable time! Riding the Vespa's was a hoot, seeing the countryside was beautiful, and the lunch at the end was wonderful!
Dario was our guide, he was both informative and humorous. We were able to see from such great view points. The meal and wine they gave us was perfecto! I don't think there is a better way to see Florence.
A ride on a Vespa through the Tuscan hills was a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Alex our guide was excellent, funny, informative and his knowledge of the local region was endless. The scooters were great, they were a little temperamental, but that's what we signed up for, an old Vespa with character. Our lunch stop was amazing, the view and surrounding were picture perfect.
My partner and I really enjoyed throughout the whole trip! I will definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is going Florence. Chris, who was our tour guide guided us well throughout the whole trip. Not to mention the nice food and wine we had too. It was truly an enjoyable tour for me.
The experience is worth it but make sure the weather will cooperate. I was a bit disappointed when no considerations were made when my wife and I had to end our tour after an hour because of the cold driving rain and the guide seemed surprised and inconvenienced. Could’ve been salvaged with a poncho or stopping at a coffee shop to dry off. Otherwise, I’m sure it would’ve been a great way to see the Tuscan countryside!
So much fun! Even though it was rainy(not heavy rain) we really enjoyed the ride and the views. The luncheon at the country Italian farm was really nice, with a brick oven fire and very nice Italian wine and food. I imagine if it had been sunny, it would have been even more amazing. Thank you Angel!
Highly recommend this Vespa tour. Such fun riding out of Florence into a more rural area. Our guide Angel was friendly and fun. Our group numbered about 11 and the Vespa can really move. I had never driven a scooter before but found it very easy to pick up and control. Such a BLAST! Includes a nice lunch in a country-ish area outside of town. I didn't want it to end. Again, highly recommended !!!
I must first say that I always shy away from tours like this but I’m so glad we did book.Guide was excellent and very safety wise.Lunch was fantastic in a really nice location.I could have ridden all day out in the hills.Just book it!
Loved this tour it really exceeded my expectations! Angel was the best guide. Highly recommended !!!
We were tentative since we had never driven a motorcycle or vespa previously. Angel was a great teacher and while we were nervous we quickly got the hang of it and really enjoyed ourselves. The tour itself was great, interesting stops along the way with some historic facts and information about the area. Lunch was fantastic too.We highly recommend this adventure!
Hands down the coolest thing I’ve ever done! Our guide Stefan was fantastic! He took the time to make sure everyone was comfortable and safe before we started. Highly recommend!!!
Riding through Florence and the Tuscany Hills on a Vespa was awesome! Our guide Alessandro was great. From beginning to end he always made sure we were comfortable and felt safe riding our Vespa. He was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts about Florence. Alessandro’s friendly personality and love of Florence showed throughout the tour. The Italian meal and wine we received while overlooking Florence was amazing. A great way to travel through Tuscany!
