    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.

    Can’t say enough good things about this outing. Graze and Michaela were wonderful (and patient) guides and instructors. Made sure we were comfortable on the Vespas before leaving. Loved getting out. Of Florence and seeing the homes and countryside. Interesting winery tour and great tasting And meal followed. Highly recommend!

    This was such a fantastic tour. I didn't drive my husband did but it meant better photos and videos. The tour guides Nicko and Michela were amazing. We had the best time. Thanks again

    We decided on a whim to add this the next day when we had the afternoon free. What a great decision. Just so much fun to get out of Florence and see the countryside, taste wine, eat dinner with new friends, ride Vespas. Just a great time. Erica, Niccolo and Viola were great. Niccolo's explanation of the wine cellar and barrels was extremely illuminating. I have never knows so much about Chianti in my life. GO DO THIS - You won't regret it. (Only nit...trial rides on gravel are a bit difficult for many drivers...they might consider paving the test area.)

    My wife and I enjoyed this attraction, but it did take a lot longer than we had expected. There was time used to shuttle us to the location and time to train our group on riding the vespas. The tour time started at 9:30 and was completed close to 4pm. The tastings were done after the ride, and we did not do a tasting at the winery we rode to. The meal after the ride was really good!

    We LOVED our vespa tour so so much! We were on our honeymoon and met great people and had wonderful tour guides. My husband had driven a motorcycle only a few times and had no issue on the vespa. I rode on the back. It was perfect.

    Outstanding! Our guides were fantastic, and our wine tasting turned into a party, where the whole group became fast friends. I highly recommend this tour!

    It was my 65th birthday and it was a fantastic day. We met some very delightful people. We had a delicious meal to end our day

    Nothing betters a day wizzing in beautiful countryside around the wine region on a Vespa, stopping for coffee and cakes, enjoying the vineyard views and ending the day with a buffet and Chianti tasting. You can't go wrong with that !
