Unforgettable, must-do experience visiting Tuscany
Aug 2021 • Couples
This was an unforgettable, must-do experience visiting Tuscany. Tour guide Mattia was the best. He explained everything very well with great sense of humor. The cars were super cute and the scenery beautiful.

Amazing Tour!
Jul 2020
I booked this tour to surprise my husband and it did not disappoint. This was our favorite part of out weekend getaway! Our tour guide Matt was AMAZING! He was fun, upbeat, and humorous which helped calmed my husbands nerves while practicing driving. The views throughout the drive were spectacular. We were the only ones on this tour and Matt was so personable. He basically did a 1 on 1 photo shoot for us. It was AMAZING. I cannot wait for family to come visit so we can do this tour again.

What a buzz
Jul 2019 • Family
A family of three (14 year old son) went on this fiat 500 tour and it was so much fun. My husband drove and i'm so glad he did, a little nervous but after instructions we handled the little "Topsie" (fiat) well. We stopped took photo's through the Chianti hills.
The 2 was for approx 2 hours and we laughed so much, Alex was a great guide.
If you have time and would like to do something different, give this a go!

Amazing tour of Tuscany!
The self driving tour through the beautiful hills of Tuscany in adorable Vintage Fiat 500s, with names, was no less than perfection. Mattia and Phillipo (sorry about spelling!) were the best tour guides we could have asked for. They were so much fun, upbeat, and very passionate about every aspect of the tour. We ended up having to leave a car in the hills somewhere because of a lost oil cap, and in the same location had to push start another car to get going. This just made the tour that much more real, added adventure and showed how amazing our guides were because they hardly batted an eyelash during this stressful situation, got everything back on track and added a cool memory to our trip. We also got to stop for coffee in the hills and see what shops in the area are like. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in Tuscany and definitely will be coming back to do it again

Best way to see the Italian countryside
Jun 2019 • Couples
We took this tour with our adult children, five adults in all. Mattia and Filipo were our guides, and gave us a great lesson on how to drive the vintage cars. We practiced a bit, then went tooling through the countryside. My husband had the biggest smile on his face the entire time. We stopped a couple of times to get out and stretch, and look at the beautiful scenery. Mattia gave us a short informational session on what crops grow in the Chianti region (olives and grapes, and wheat!), and why different wines taste different based on the composition of the soil where the grapes are grown.He was knowledgeable and truly cares for this part of Italy.

Keep in mind that these are vintage cars with very small two cylinder engines. They are temperamental. They sometimes break down. They sometimes need coaxing starting. We were stopped for coffee and snacks, and my car, Fernando, had trouble starting. An old Italian gentleman stopped by and gave me some advice. (Then Mattia turned the key over, and the ignition made enough contact to start.) This drive was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. If you like classic cars, and you like adventure, you will like this. If you are looking for power steering and air conditioning, you would be better suited doing something else.

Adventure of a lifetime!
Jun 2019 • Couples
My husband and I did all the wonderful things around Florence on our trip but wanted to escape to the countryside for just a little while. This vintage fiat 500 tour was just the thing! We had the best time, learned so much about Italian agriculture, and saw the most breath-taking views. Alex was our leader and he did a fantastic job teaching us about “Fernando”, our blue 1960s Fiat 500 and how to drive it comfortably. What an experience!! I’m so glad we chose this way to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary.

Highlight of Florence!
Jun 2019 • Couples
This tour was such a fun, once in a lifetime tour! We had Mattia as our guide who explained how the car worked well & was super engaging throughout the 2 hours.
It was so much fun driving through the Tuscany Hills & everyone waving & watching as the little Fiat’s drove past. We were lucky to be the only couple on the tour so it felt super personalised.
I wouldn’t hesitate in booking this if you want to get out & experiment something you won’t be able to do anywhere else in the world
