My family of 7 has a wonderful time exploring the little towns of Tuscany. This is the perfect day adventure for anyone looking to see the iconic rolling hills of Tuscany. There is nothing better than riding a Vespa through the Chianti region see little towns and hidden gems of the region. Our guide Diego was amazing and taught us about the region and knew all the good spots to go. This tour was worth the money and I would recommend to anyone staying in the region.

The check-in process took much longer than expected. It's almost an hour long drive to the starting point of the vespa tour, and then our group just had one person processing paperwork, etc. So the actual tour started around 11am and ended around 430pm. The wine tasting and lunch was in a beautiful location, but the overall experience was okay. Some items that were mentioned we were going to taste didn't actually happen and it seemed a tad rushed, but the wine was delicious. With that said, the actual time spent on the vespa and the beautiful sightseeing was awesome! Glad we did it.

Great adventure and Gluten Free accommodations

We really enjoyed our day. Lucky to be with pleasant people. I failed the Vespa test... so we took a mini Fiat that was seriously antique! There were three flip switches and an ashtray where our radios and GPS are now. For us, this added to the adventure. I wish I could show the pictures! My only request is to offer water at check in and before the last stop. It would be an added touch. All three stops were great! I will define recommend it.
