Best day in Florence yet - do it! :) Our guides were great with the scooter instruction and took their time till everyone was comfortable with the scooters before we set off. Didnt actually time it but maybe 1.5hrs of riding?? Perfect length for a beginner. Stunning countryside with oldy timey buildings and villages along the way. The olive oil and wine tastings at both wineries were great, and the salami, cheese, bruschetta and couscous at the second one was great too. Interesting explanation/tour of the olive pressing and oil extraction process at the first winery, and of the wine making process at the second. Big part of the enjoyment is the other cool cats you meet from around the world on the tour. 12 people in our group - perfect. Have yourself a fun day out and take stunning pictures to prove it! Insurance 20 Euro. (Or a more complicated option of a 500 Euro charge on your credit card that you get back at some point in the midterm future.... i took the 20 Euro option).

Christian was a fantastic guide and teacher. We were both beginners with the vespa, and he kept us safe and gave great instructions. He was a knowledgeable guide for the area, and a true Tuscan local. His love for the area and for his job was obvious and made a beautiful tour very fascinating. The vintage Vespas are fun and charming. The fleet of vintage Fiats was also fun to watch. We would highly recommend walkabout tours and Christian to our family and friends, you too will be in good hands with their team! Thanks Christian and Team! Jon and Susan.

Lovely day, excellent guides and olive oil and wine tour was amazing. Highly recommend.

Great way to see the city (especially on a hot day).

THIS WAS THE BEST PART OF OUR TRIP! IT'S A MUST DO!
