Our guide Alex was great! Very patient and very knowledgeable. Wonderful views of the city from the hills and a fantastic meal at the end at the company's estate.

My group had 15 riders, mostly couples of all ages. As I often travel solo, sometimes there is a bit of a third-wheel feeling in tours that are full of couples, but not at all with this trip! The tour guide Stefano did excellent making sure everyone was happy and comfortable on the bikes, and with each other. He was patient and thorough in making sure everyone was able to ride the bikes safely as he explained how they worked, and the traffic rules. When riding, he led the group in a 1960s fiat, and we followed behind like little ducklings on our 1983 Vespas. We rode through tiny towns and around the Tuscan hills near Galluzzo Pozzolatico, near olive groves as workers picked olives for the harvest. We stopped at a gorgeous viewpoint above Florence where Stefano taught us about the history of the city, its architecture, and its Renaissance leaders. We had 2-course lunch of pasta and cheese/prosciutto at a beautiful garden overlooking the hills. It was excellent! Thank you Stefano and Walkabout tours! Five stars!

I booked this tour because I had some college students that were going to be with us this day. I figured this was a little more their style. This ended up being one of ALL of our favorite tours! This wasn't your usual walking tour. We started downtown Florence, but soon crossed the bridge over to the Chianti countryside. It was so much fun riding on the Vespas thru the hills! I rode behind my husband on one Vespa, as I wanted to be able to take pictures along the way. I left the driving up to him. But most everyone else rode their own Vespa, and the tour guide does stop in multiple locations so everyone did have the opportunity to take pictures. The dinner at the end of the trip was at a charming farm house. The food was incredible! I would highly recommend this tour! Alex, our guide, was great!
