Full description

Cruise along scenic and peaceful roads on a Vespa. Pass through the Tuscan countryside and see working farms. Follow winding roads through chestnut woods, olive groves, and vineyards.

The scenic area is also peppered with hidden relics of the past, like old castles, villages, farms, and parish churches. Keep your eye out for these as you ride by on your scooter.

Enjoy this experience with your Italian and English-speaking guide, who will take you to small medieval villages situated in the heart of Tuscany. Have the chance to drive an original Vespa or decide to be driven by one of the local partner's expert drivers.

The tour along the Chianti hills lasts all day. Think of the avenue of cypress trees immortalized in the typical postcard displayed outside any store in Tuscany. In just such an avenue, you will have the opportunity to stroll and take authentic photographs of the region.

You will be guided to a winery for a tasting worthy of all expectations, accompanied by breathtaking scenery, in a peaceful and pleasant atmosphere.

If you can do this tour, just do it. Had a really fantastic day. My friend and I shared a vespa, which is certainly doable (also for people with a size more). You get a Vespa 125cc, in Belgium you need an A driving license for that, but not in Italy. The wine tastings and stopovers were all super nice and in order! Diego was a very nice, chill guide! Before you start, everyone who will drive a vespa must do a test to make sure that everyone can drive it.

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.
