Had a great time driving the 1967 Fiat! Matt was a brilliant guide who was very patient and clear in explaining how to use the car with it being different to a modern car. Amazing views driving around the hills near Florence, drove to nearby village stopped for some photos with the lovely cars. We got the bus from the city centre, number 36, and it dropped us off straight outside the Villa with the Tour starting from just inside the gate. Thanks again to Matt and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Florence :)

Since we planned the tour we thought it would be something very special and we would see beautiful landscapes, and it fully met our expectations. Driving these cars was a unique experience and meeting Matias (our guide) with his funny anecdotes, his experience and knowledge of the place, made the ride a real pleasure! Super recommended!

Very well ! Fun activity to do! We were the only couple present for the activity! The guide's car had a problem… which required several non-disturbing breaks. It would have been appreciated a tasting break in the middle of this walk in the middle of the vineyards.
