From Florence: Private Pinocchio History Tour
- Private group
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 7 hours
We had an amazing few hours exploring the outskirts of Florence and the Chianti region with our drivers Hamid and Luca, both very knowledgeable and great company. This was definitely the best way to get a wonderful view of the city and then enjoy the Chianti countryside. We booked as passengers, with two drivers, and I strongly suggest this is the best way to enjoy the trip as driving yourself requires high competency on a Vespa and you then need to focus on the road and other drivers rather than be able to enjoy the scenery. Thanks to Hamid and Luca for a fantastic few hours and highly skilled driving and commentary.
We had never ridden a Vespa before and were surprised when the company had us practice in the parking lot. My fiancé passed the test but I didn’t. I was dissappointed but the instructor had me ride on his with him and I’m very happy I wasn’t riding. You go on high ways, round abouts and weave through traffic on the vespas. The tour is outside of Florence in Tuscany and it’s a very beautiful surreal experience. The vespas went FAST at one point I looked down and saw we were going 55kph. Amazing experience but I wish I had known ahead of time that you needed motorcycle or Vespa experience.
Lucca was fantastic! This is the best tour myself and my partner have been on. The tour was around 4 hours long and we covered around 60 miles of Florence (both the city and the hill side). He took us to the most beautiful views and told us the history of each place we went to. He was very easy to get along with and treated us to a coffee and ice cream along the way. Would definitely recommend to everyone, this is the best way to see so much of Florence which you wouldn't have the chance to do otherwise. Thanks a lot Lucca, from Lucy and Lewis!
Massimo provided a wonderful tour of Florence and Pisa. They met our cruise ship, were on time and got us to Pisa before all the cruise ship busses showed up. Next they took us to Florence were we saw all the major locations followed by a pickup and quick return to our cruise ship. I would use them again as well as possibly use them for a land tour in the future.
This is a must do activity. You see so much of the surrounding areas of Florence, some beautiful viewpoints and quaint villages. You get to stop off at various places to take it all in. Our guide Luca, was really nice and knowledgeable, really pleased we had someone like him to make for a brilliant experience. Thank you!
