After meeting up with your guide and tour escorts at you hotel in the center of Siena, strap on your helmut and get ready to travel, Italian style. Hop on your Vespa scooter, get a brief safety lecture, and follow your guide as you ride out of Siena. Alternatively, hop on a scooter with a tour escort if you prefer not to drive a scooter yourself. 

As you ride through the Tuscan countryside, take in the amazing views of the low-rolling hills, some clad with vineyards and olive groves, other topped by a rustic terra cotta-roofed villa. Pass by the village of Monteriggioni, a hill town dominated by the medieval walls that encircle it. Then ride into lush Chianti, cruising down tranquil country roads and passing ancient villages. If you've opted to share the scooter with a traveling companion, there will be ample breaks so you can switch drivers or stretch your legs. 

About halfway through the tour, hop off the Vespa at a wintery in Chianti to indulge in a traditional Tuscan lunch of prosciutto, salami, locally made cheese, thick country bread and olives. Sip some of local wine, including the famed Chianti Classico, Gallo Nero and even Super Tuscan. Take some time here to relax and enjoy the bucolic surroundings of the Chianti countryside. 

When the time comes, hop back on your Vespa for the ride back to Siena where the tour concludes.

There is a poor communication between agency through which we booked it and local tour operator. Missing alignment!

Aweful experience

My wife and I went on a Vespa “tour” on July 24th, 2019. The tour was absolutely awful. It was the worst experience we have ever had in Italy. Below is quick rundown of the terrible experience we had: • The tour started 1 hour later than it should have • The tour guides combined the Vespa and the Car tours together (which is false advertisement and not what we signed up for) • The small cars that customer were driving kept breaking down and stalling • My wife had to sit on the side of the road while the tour guides pushed the car up the hills because it would not start • My wife was separated from me for over an hour during the trip • The tour guides didn’t know what they were doing and were rude to us when we were complaining about the cars not working • Leaving the winery, another one of the tour cars broke down – in this case my wife and I were stranded on the side of the road for 2 hours in the heat with no water! • Finally after sitting in the heat on the side of the road with no water, the tour guides got a van to pick us up and take us back to the grounds • The office manager was rude and would :not refund us our payment for this terrible experience • The bus did not get us back to Sieana until almost 7PM! We were late for dinner with our friends and were covered in sweat from waiting on the side of the road for hours. • When I tried to talk to the office, they gave me this email address and told me to contact via email.

This was the worst tour we have ever...

This was the worst tour we have ever been on. Tuscany is gorgeous and there are plenty of other tour options. Stay away from this one. Not only was our tour cut 2.5 hours early due to 'rain' (which the rain quickly stopped afterwards), we also had to wait over an hour for our transfer back to our hotel. We waited at a warehouse in the middle of nowhere without a person in sight to help us. It was like we were totally forgotten. The tour itself was extremely unprofessional. The tour guide made inappropriate racial jokes about the other people on the tour. The lunch at the winery was covered in fruit flies. We're avid travelers and this by far was one of the most unprofessional tours we've ever been on. We would give this a 0 rating if we could.

The vespa tour was definitely a highlight of our trip to Italy. The route we took was gorgeous and the winery and lunch were both delightful. Lucca, our guide, was very attentive and patient. The only reason we didn’t give 5 stars was because they were very short handed and it took an hour to complete all the paperwork and brief vespa training test before we got started. They also overbooked and has one too many people, so one of our party drove a vintage Fiat 500 rather than the vespa. Overall, a great time!!!

The tour and staff were very good. The only challenge was my wife was unable to ride a scooter because they did not have a scooter for a 5' person. Understanding this was off season I would suggest that Viator ask the height of each person to accomodate them for a scooter.

So much fun cruising the Chianti region on a Vespa. It was great weather and we learned about the region, which was cool. The guide, Francesco, was a really lovely man.

The tour and the tour guides were awesome. Enjoyed every minute. The wine tasting at the Chianti Winery was so amazingly good we shipped a case back home. Highly recommended this tour, but if you have no experience driving a Vespa or scooter you may want to rent one of their vintage cars.
