Hands down this was our favorite part of our Tuscan honeymoon. My husband and I loved the scenery, the stops along the way, the views... it was a total adventure and our guide was an absolute rockstar. 10/10 would recommend and if we find ourselves in Florence again, we would without a doubt go for another ride. Side note that we rented scooters in Thailand previously but this was very different... more regulated, safer, coordinated. And they were very easy to drive! Not golf cart easy, but not stick shift hard or anything. We had planned to share one at first, and after our "driver's tests" in the parking lot, I felt confident to go on my own. Would also recommend this approach for couples as it's very tight with two and so much fun to catch glimpses of your significant other cruising through the Italian countryside!

My husband and I visited Florence for the first time this past month while on our honeymoon. While in Florence we came across this experience and we absolutely loved it! Riding vespas around the town was probably one of my favorite and most memorable experience of the entire trip! We got to see the country side while sipping on some wine. Made some new friends and learned so much about this beautiful town and our tour guide Chris was amazing! I highly recommend! Don’t even think twice, it is so worth it! I can’t wait to go back and do it again!!

Cristian and Gabriel were amazing! Seriously if you are considering doing a Vespa ride outside of the city, I can’t recommend Walk About Florence enough. You can choose double or single and there was a group of about 20 of us all together. They have a lead car and a follow car and for the most part you are on small Italian roads. The views and whole experience was wonderful. 10/10 recommend!!!

Fantastic day! We hired a Vespa for two and had such a fun time. No need to worry about whether or not you’ve got experience on bikes as it is quite straight forward and you get a test run anyway. Chris the tour guide was a seriously nice guy who excelled at his job. Most enjoyable thing we did in Italy! Must do!!

Great guided, even on eBikes, which is absolutely essential in Florence. Despite Italian traffic, no losses, but a great experience. Gladly again.
