This was, hands down, one of the BEST experiences in all of my travels. This is my second visit to this region and the first time I booked a tour of this kind. The Vespas are well kept and easy to learn/drive. Our guide, Vincenzo, made sure each of us in our group were comfortable on the Vespas and I felt very safe under his watchful guidance (I had never driven a Vespa before). We practiced in the parking lot with basic instructions before the tour. It was clear on check-in that this is a very professional and well-managed company. The tour itself was PURE JOY! Imagine cruising on gently winding roads through the sun-dappled hills with stunning views of the Tuscan countryside. That is exactly what we experienced. Our competent and very helpful guide Vincenzo (who was amazing and very knowledgeable about the area) really made our tour special. It included a stop at a gorgeous and historic winery for a full wine tasting and gourmet three course lunch. If you are not sure – have no concerns – this is an amazing experience with a quality company (and a fantastic value) – go for it!!!!
Our tour with Vincenzo was a highlight of our trip! He was excellent at training us and making sure we were ready for the Tuscan roads and once we were ready, he took us on an incredible journey. The rolling hills and sights of San Gimignano were unbeatable as we roared thru streets on our Vespa’s. Vincenzo’s knowledge and passion for grapes and olives were well represented by his family upbringing and we got insiders knowledge. The lunch at Torciano Winery was a wonderful addition and surprise to our tour and again Vincenzo made sure we were well taken care by the best the winery had to offer. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity!!! Bravo Vincenzo … good luck with your career in medicine!!!!
Vincenzo was a wonderful guide. The tour was the highlight of our trip. We had such a good time and Vincenzo was very knowledgeable about all of our stops and Chianti region of Tuscany. Loved it!!
There is no better way to experience the San San Gimignano and Chianti area than on a Vespa with Vincenzo! The ride was spectacular, winding through the hills and past countless vineyards and olive tree fields. Vincenzo’s knowledge and passion for the region was on full display during our trip. In addition, the wine / food tasting mid-trip vastly exceeded expectations.
Lastly, Vincenzo displayed an impressive concern for the safety of riders. His ability to drive and guide us through our Vespa journey made us feel completely comfortable on the roads.
Thanks for a great day in Tuscany!
We had such a great day with Vincenzo! He was a great tour guide and made sure everyone was safe, gave a great tour with history of the region, and was all around fun to travel with. We explored some beautiful vistas of Tuscany, stopped for a lovely wine tasting and lunch, and got some great pictures with the Vespas and the scenery! It was the BEST day and I can’t recommend the experience enough. Worth every penny!
Fantastic guided tour round the vineyards and olive groves on ending with a traditional lunch and wine tasting. Our guide, Vita, was very knowledgeable and we stopped off at a number of viewpoints to speak about the wine and olive oil making process and take a few pictures.
Worth taking a bottle of water and tucking it away in the seat locker as it can get pretty hot riding through the back roads in the July heat.
Evento super consigliato, da non perdere sicuramente per assaporare a pieno la storia ed i paesaggi nel cuore della Toscana, ma soprattutto i vini e la cucina locale. Il tutto condito dalla simpatia e la professionalità delle Staff che vi accompagna in questa divertente “avventura”. Noi abbiamo acquistato il giro in Vespa con visita e degustazione in una splendida tenuta, siamo stati una giornata a bordo della mitica due ruote, solcando le colline Toscane nei dintorni di San Gimignano. La frizzante e simpatica Irene ci ha narrato la storia dei vigneti e degli uliveti che la circondano, e ci ha raccontato anche diversi aneddoti storici legati alle luoghi che abbiamo visitato. Senz’altro una bellissima giornata in OTTIMA compagnia.
