What To Expect

Your Vespa tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide and head straight to our garage for a brief safety overview and practice ride before hitting the road. Saddle up on your stylish Vespa and follow your guide through tree-lined avenues until you reach the hills in the countryside.

Admire panoramic views of Florence from the Church of San Miniato al Monte before taking a peek inside. The Romanesque church hosts an array of incredible artwork and is one of the city’s lesser-known gems.

Continue into the Tuscan hills, past poppy fields and vineyards, with plenty of opportunities to pause for photos. As you travel back toward Florence, pull over at Piazzale Michelangelo, where views of the Arno River and the iconic Duomo stretch out before you.

Conclude your adventure with a Tuscan meal (menu for lunch is bruschetta, pasta and a cheese and salami board). Sit back, relax and soak up the Italian spirit before heading back to your original departure point.

Traveler Tips

Make sure you beep your horn, especially at the Ferrari's
It is a lot easier if you have previous experience but they do have two different groups depending on skill level!
The experience is worth it but make sure the weather will cooperate.

Get out of the City and have some Fun!
Robbie_V, Sep 2023
Can't really complain about this Vespa tour. Driving through the skinny streets above Florence was a thrill, our guide, Stefano, kept the group moving and safe, and the food and wine at the farm was a wonderful time. A couple of things that were unexpected...I thought we would ride vintage vespa's...I think the tour was actually described as "the only Vintage Vespa Tour in Florence" when I booked it, but it looks like they just recently switched to brand new scooters. Based on the length of the tour, I thought we would have more riding time, but as others have said, you lose a lot of time getting transferred to the garage and test rides. We probably lost at least 2 hours. All that being said, my wife and I had a really fun time and it's absolutely one of the highlights of our time in Florence.
Highly recommend
Missy_S, Sep 2023
We had so much fun, and the views were unbelievable! All of the guides were helpful and considerate. I would highly recommend. Just make sure you have experience riding a scooter, there was a little bit of skill needed.
Best trip ever!
Jordan_O, Sep 2023
The Vespa tour was a once in a lifetime trip, the views, food and fun had made for the best trip ever! Chris was an amazing tour guide. Highly recommend this tour!
Must do experience from Firienze!!
Carly_D, Sep 2023
We had an incredible experience with this Vespa tour company! From start to finish, it was a five-star adventure. The guides were not only knowledgeable about the city's hidden gems but also made sure we felt safe throughout the entire journey. Riding Vespas through the charming streets was an absolute thrill, and the breathtaking views we encountered were unforgettable. The tour was well-paced, allowing us to savor each moment. I can't recommend this tour company enough – it's a must-do for anyone looking to explore the city in a unique and exhilarating way. Grazie to Chris and his colleagues. Five stars all the way! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Vespa is the way to go!
Sharon_E, Sep 2023
What a fun day!! We loved getting to ride the Vespa and seeing the countryside! We got to visit a winery and enjoy some local food and wine!
Oh Roberto

First and foremost bring your drivers license if you want yo ride the Vespa. It’s simple read everything about the your. There was a group that did not bring Drl and were giving the guys of the tour a hard time. Gabriel, Santiago and Iacob were amazing guys. Very patient with the test drive and if you were not comfortable or did not pass the test you went on the tour with them in old fiats. Views were breathtaking- took time to stop and take pics. Food was great and hit the spot. I had a great time with Gabriel- by the end I knew his whole life🤣 he liked my comment about the brakes lasting the life of the car
What a blast
StevenandDianne_H, Sep 2023
Our guides were fun and informative. Had thee best day, Thankyou for your professionalism. Highly recommend .
Amazing experience. Definitely recommend!
Cynthia_J, Sep 2023
Great experience, friendly and well organized from the pickup to the your itself. The farm to table meal was delicious. It took a while to get started because the operators wanted to make sure that everyone could ride the vespas comfortably and safely. They conducted test rides for everyone who signed up. Those who could not safely ride the vespas or were not comfortable doing it, rode in the old Fiats with the guide. I really like that they were so safety conscious.
Very Fun, Great Tour!
Marvin_G, Sep 2023
Riding a Vespa through Tuscany was amazing, relaxing, and felt great! The tour guides were very helpful in learning how to ride the Vespa (I had no experience) and I was able to ride it smoothly for the most part. Stefano and the team were great!!
Favorite family booking
David_J, Sep 2023
My family has been looking forward to the Vespa tour for many months and it was everything we had hoped for. Walkabout and its' employees are wonderful. My group leader was Stephano and he was great. He spoke great English and provided us with so much awesome information at each stop. The meal and wine that was provided was excellent. This is a must if you travel to Florence. The Tuscany region is beautiful and provides such great food and drink.

Stephano, Iacopo and Santiago were awesome. They made the tour memorable and safe for all skill levels of Vespa operation.
Recommend with reservation
Jessica_D, Sep 2023
I recommend this tour with reservations. There is truth in all of the 1-4 star reviews posted. A lot of time is spent “testing” Vespa competency for the group, but not for each individual driver. I would absolutely trust the instructors and their opinion on competency - if they ask you multiple times if you feel comfortable with the Vespa, you should probably just do the fiat ride. There were people nearly crashing into walls during the test who felt “comfortable” but then ended up in a ditch during the real tour on Italian roads, thankfully without injury. Driving a Vespa is not the same as riding a bike or a lime scooter. I highly recommend watching YouTube videos for basic “how to’s” and would almost consider experience riding a Vespa to be a pre-requisite. My husband/driver had some experience on scooters and is proficient on a bike, but was anxious the entire time. It’s hard to focus on driving a new vehicle in a foreign country with cars passing you, while also enjoying the ride and views. Overall this company does a great job with the schedule and making sure everyone is safe. Food was pretty good, guides were great, and views were beautiful.
Highly recommended experience
Denise_A, Sep 2023
Gabriel and his team were professional and knowledgeable regarding the use of Vespas and the Tuscany countryside. We enjoyed the ride, the breathtaking landscape, and the dinner at the end of the excursion. Grabriel’s knowledge of the Tuscan history and navigation of the roads made this trip an enjoyable experience. Well done to the team who put this tour together. We highly recommend it, from the inexperienced to the experienced Vespa rider.
Unique Florence Experience
Karen_G, Sep 2023
Beautiful scenery and wonderful lunch. I would recommend this to everyone who would like to get some beautiful views of Florence, see a 1,000 year old church and have the most wonderful lunch overlooking the countryside. Our guides Gabriel and Jakamo (sp?) were very nice and were very diligent in preparing us to ride and to ensure our safety during the trip. Would recommend some experience in riding vespas or motorcycles but they are great teachers.
Christine_D, Sep 2023
The tour guides were AMAZING. They did a great job of instructing us how to ride the Vespa and gave us interesting information as we rode along the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
Unreal experience!
Joseph_T, Sep 2023
The interaction of the instructor s and guides, and the stories of the history of the area were tremendous. It was by far the most fun we’ve had on our vacation and will do it again on any return trips
Truly fabulous
Louise_T, Sep 2023
We loved this tour! Gabriel and Jacob were absolutely amazing at their job! Ended up riding in the fiat500 after not doing so well on the Vespa test, but honestly, it was still so much fun. Jacob was our driver and he made the experience well worth it! The food was some of the best we had! Would recommend to all, or even to search for the fiat 500 tour they provide too! Thanks guys!
Great vespa experience
Fabio_M, Sep 2023
What a great way to experience Florence. Truly a wonderful day field with fun and excitement on an Italian icon. Capture the Tuscan hills in all its glory on a Vespa.
Spectacular Tour
Maritza_G, Sep 2023
We had an amazing time during this tour. The tour guides were professional and friendly, and in particular Manolo was super helpful making sure all needs were fulfilled making everyone comfortable.
A memorable experience
Chanteja_M, Sep 2023
I really enjoyed riding the Vespa! This was a great experience for me and my husband! If your are in Florence the driving is a little scary in general but the tour guide did a great job of keeping us together at good speeds and telling us how to navigate. The first part of the tour was pretty long due to training of each person on how to use the Vespa. There were many who didn’t get the hang of it, but if you don’t a guide will escort you on the back of their Vespa or you can double with someone else in your party. All in all i enjoyed this and recommend it
