    Dear Customer, We are sorry to read your review here on TripAdvisor! We are aware of this case and you have already been contacted by our Customer Care Office of what you have been charged of. Vespa Tour is not a class where customers learn how to drive, but it is a tour where the customers KNOWS how to drive the Vespa and discover the Tuscany area by this typical scooter for us in Italy. As you know, and all previous customers who have done the Vespa Tour knows, that before taking the tour you have to sign a document where are listed all the charges in case of damages of the Vespa. You and your husband, unfortunately had an accident during this tour, but this was not because of the guide. The Vespas were driven by you and your husband. You have been charged for the damage caused the day of the tour. Our guide got bandages and cleaned up your husband's face. He offered you to go to the ER, but you didn't accept this. All what the tour has in its inclusions are all listed online where all the customers can read before booking and in addition to this all can call the our office to have all the information needed for the tour they want to book.

    This trip required a measured 15,500 steps, and most of them seemed to be uphill. It would be better if buses could make a quick dropoff and then vacate to a remote staging area.Likewise when a tour leader can call in when all cats herded. Know the sites are busy, however the

    I should have spent more tome reading the detail. My wife and children couldn’t go on the Vespers because they are not experienced riders. Luca was amazing. He helped find an alternative activity for them and the I went on the tour with him and we all had a great afternoon.

    This tour was fantastic! The only drawback was the initial meeting point. We walked for 15mins or so to get to the tour office where the Vespas were staged. Be prepared for some crazy traffic! If you are not comfortable driving in heavy traffic I suggest riding as a passenger!
