Excellent experiences! Me, my wife and my 5 years old daughter had a great time riding this little vintage Fiat. We had experience different route outside of the city. The Wine vineyards are great with lot of history. The lunch was very yummy and traditional Italian. The landscape was very beautiful during the ride. Instructor Bill was very nice and helpful especially we had little problem going back to our Cruise on time. He even helped and arrange a private car for us (that's extra work) Very appreciated that and we were so lucky the other members are very friendly too~ P.S. Make sure you know how to drive MT.
