    Great adventure and Gluten Free accommodations

    We really enjoyed our day. Lucky to be with pleasant people. I failed the Vespa test... so we took a mini Fiat that was seriously antique! There were three flip switches and an ashtray where our radios and GPS are now. For us, this added to the adventure. I wish I could show the pictures! My only request is to offer water at check in and before the last stop. It would be an added touch. All three stops were great! I will define recommend it.

    Great time! Well worth the money!

    Everything about this tour was great! The vespas the wine tasting, the meals, and the small stops alone the way! The only reason I didn’t give it 5 starrs was because it took a little bit of time to get started, we were sitting around waiting for an hour/ hour and a half but once started it was excellent!

    What a blast! If you are traveling with high school/college aged kids then take a break from all the museums and historical and amazing sites and do this for a day. Our boys (18 and 20) loved St Peters, the Vatican, the Coliseum, the Duomo, etc, but thanked us for a day in the countryside riding Vespas and taking a wine tour. (Just have to be a licensed driver). It’s a 30 min van drive out to the vespas, then a great ride along quiet farm land and wineries. We stopped in 2 quaint hilltop towns and had lunch/tour/wine tasting at a small winery. Good group. Both tour guides Lofti and Matteo were patient and polite entire day. The only caveat I would mention is that the meeting place was tricky to find - even our cab driver was perplexed- we ended up calling the bar where we were supposed to meet and they gave the cab driver more specific directions. So give yourself time to find it and avoid the stress. Otherwise, it was worth every dollar.
