My husband and I, and friends had a fabulous adventure …with our husband’s driving these vintage Fiats!! It was such a great experience and gorgeous, scenic drive through the hillsides of Chianti!! We stopped at a great winery for lunch with a wine tasting … and ordered wine to be shipped back to United States. Our guide, Bella and her team were fabulous- can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed this excursion, it was one of the highlights of our month-long stay in Florence! Highly recommend this tour, but you certainly need to know how to drive a standard vehicle!

Best day ever! The guides were so helpful, nice, and made us feel safe. The Vespa tour was beautiful. The wine tasting exceeded expectations!! We can’t recommend this tour highly enough. Cheers to the tour guides!

The guide took us to Michelangelo Square though it was not covered by our particular tour. He also offered many fun facts. A very enjoyable ride indeed.

Great overall tour! Get the highlights of Florence and beautiful pictures with narration that is not too much but just right!

The best tour in Florence ! Very thorough and knowledgeable guide!
