This tour was the highlight of my trip. The tour guide Chiro was a wealth of information and a wonderful guide. Riding the Vespa through the Tuscan hills was breathtaking.To top if off sitting at the Chianti Winery by an open fire eating the most beautiful food and tasting the gorgeous chianti classico wines was a delight.

Amazing Vespa Tour

Riding the iconic red Vespas through the rolling hills of Tuscany was an amazing experience. Neither of us had any experience riding scooters, though my husband took to it much faster than I did. The guides kept a close eye on me though to ensure I was safe the whole ride. After a van ride to Siena and an overview of riding, we rolled out to the town of Castellina in Chianti. The two guides gave an entertaining and informative overview of this town before sending us out to explore on out own. After that we rode to a family owned vineyard for lunch and wine tasting. The wine was good and the lunch was decent and filling. After a fun lunch with the group we rode to Monteriggioni, which was an interesting town to explore. There were plenty of stops for pictures along the way as well. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience!

Vespa tour of Chianti

We took the full day Vespa tour of Chianti with Giovanni as our tour guide. We were the only 2 people on the tour a it was getting cold in November. Giovanni paid particular attention to bike handling and safety skills prior to commencing the tour. He provided an overview of the places we would be visiting. We had a great time, including the light lunch and wine tasting. Giovanni was pleasant and communicated well throughout the tour and allowed us ample time to explore the villages we stopped at. Would recommend this tour to anyone as a good way to experience this part of Tuscany.
