We did the wine tasting tour in mid-October 2014. It was hard to beat all the other stuff we did in Tuscany, but this was truly a highlight. We took the bus from Florence which was easy, cheap, and actually fun. Niccolò was our guide and provided excellent instruction on double-clutching (easy) and great directions. On our day, there were 3 couples in 3 Fiats and Niccolò leading the team on a Vespa through the hills outside of Florence. You get your own car with some vintage Italian tunes and a great ride. Upon return, you go to the winery at the same site as you start your trip. The wines were very good and accompanied by plenty of snacks (you won't go hungry). You don't have to worry about driving afterwards, because it is a 200 meter trip to the car drop off.
Our trip did have 2 hiccups. First was that one couple side-swiped a parked car and dented the side of their Fiat. Niccolò was very understanding and professional in dealing with the couple. I assume the outcome was good for all. Second, we lost our camera (too much drink at the winery). After we returned to the States, we emailed the Club and they looked and found it. They then mailed it to us and wouldn't accept payment for the shipping.
Simply a superb experience for us in every area. We will definitely take another of their tours when we return to Florence.

Best Tour Ever Done
My wife and I traveled from Puerto Rico to Europe on our honeymoon. We scheduled many different excursions and had no idea that this fiat tour was going to be the best thing that we would do.. Not just on the Europe trip, but in any country we have ever been to. Giuseppe was great and really did a great job with our group. You get to meet people from around the world and by the end of the tour you are enjoying a nice wine and some food together.
We really have to thank this Tour Company for making our honeymoon extra special and created a lifetime memory. By the way, if you are a male you will love this, driving these little Fiats around are like driving Go Karts!

Hilarious way to see the Chianti countryside
This unusual, vintage tour was fantastic! We enjoyed it from the start to the finish. There were a few nerves and anxious moments at learning how to use the double clutch, but it soon became easy enough. Definitely would say you need to be an experienced manual car driver before getting behind the wheel of these vintage Cinque centos.
Our tour was led by Beppe, he was very patient when teaching us about the cars and gave great knowledge and facts about the cars themselves and the chianti countryside. He made us laugh on more than one occasion!
Lucky for us it did not rain as my 6 foot 2 inches boyfriend had to permanently drive with the sunroof open so his head could stick out in order to fit in the Fiat 500! Which just made the tour even funnier for me!

My Husbands favorite part of our trip!
I signed my husband and I up for this tour after reading about it on Tripadvisor. It was awesome!! We had so much fun driving around Tuscany. It was so nice to get out of the city of Florence and check out the countryside. Our guide Nico made our tour so memorable. He was funny, nice, and more importantly... patient! I would definitely recommend this tour. So much fun!
