An overall fantastic experience. Grazia was a first class guide, as were the staff at the wineries. Great care taken to ensure everyone was able to correctly operate the Vespa, so safety was a priority. The Vespa’s were all relatively new and we had no issues at all. The two wineries were both excellent examples of small production enterprises and the wine tastings and food were great. At Fattoria Bagnolo we were fortunate to have the owner (Giovanna) share her experiences and family history, which dates back hundreds of years. Highly recommended!

Bellisimo

Highlight of our Florence vacation! The guides were awesome and it was amazing getting to see some of the countryside on a zippy Vespa. GYG gave us the wrong meet up location, but the tour company set us right up with an afternoon tour and we were very happy! Well worth the money as all of the group agreed. Definitely check this out!

Nice experience with a great landscape

It was really a great experience that I can only recommend to everyone! You could really see a lot of the landscape and driving a Vespa is really great fun. The only downside was that in the end we didn't have much time to eat and we only tried 2 wines. All in all, maybe a bit expensive, but it was also a lot of fun. And great tour guides :-)
