    The tour guides were super nice. The route was great and we really enjoyed the winery tour. The only thing that was not good and not fair was that I accidentally caused slight damage to two plastic parts and the mirror broke off from the Vespa. We should simply pay an amount of € 350 without an invoice. After a long discussion we got at least one invoice, but the price has remained inexplicable. We were definitely ripped off.

    Great walk to do

    Great day ... an adorable guide. Be aware that whatever your departure city, you will go near Siena to get the Vespa or the Fiat 500. We really left in Vespa at 11:30 am, time to do all the paperwork + the trip to the departure garage. After it is happiness ... very very nice atmosphere in the group !!!

    Very nice!

    After a false start, we went for a nice walk. On the other hand, we had to wait an hour at the meeting point, our driver arrived by car with on him no clear identification of the company organizing the event. On arrival we have to do a driving test and the evaluator did not like my driving. They finally accepted that I drive and gave me a 50cc in bad condition! The guide took my daughter behind him. The ride was nice wine from the regular vineyard, but the site was lovely. We drove long enough and visited two charming villages in Chianti. Beautiful day!
