I love taking bike intro yours! It's a great way to get around and suss the place out. It also gives you the confidence to hire in the following days and explore more on your own. You can cover so much more area on a bike and good exercise.

Amazing bike tour! My friends and I did this tour the first day we were in Florence. A perfect way to see several Florence sights in a small amount of time, gain knowledge about the history of the city and get a great idea of where you may want to spend more time. Highly recommended!

Fun and informative. We discovered places we hadn't reached on foot. Great Gelato stop too! We didn't want to give the bikes back.

We spent 2 weeks in Europe and this was one of our favorite tours. We liked the fact that we did several stops and that the tour guide looked for streets that were not that crowded. We enjoy having gelato at the end of the tour. The tour was really different and fun.

Excellent way to start our stay in Florence! It was not too long 2 hours and very affordable. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and she gave us very interesting stories. It does not require much effort to do this bike tour as we spent more time listening to our tour guide, Valentina, than biking itself which is what we were looking for. It's a perfect way to get familiar with the area as well. Well done Valentina! Caroline, Martin and Marianne

Loved this tour! Great way to get around the city and orientate yourself. Ilaria was a great guide, very enthusiastic, bubbly, fun and smiley - it was a real pleasure to be shown around Florence by someone who knows and loves it so well. Thanks!

This trip was one that we booked last minute, about one hour before, and ended up as one of our highlights of our whole trip to Italy! The BEST way to view Florence - it was more than we could have imagined and much for fun as well. Our tour Mario was amazing. He loves the city of Florence, born and raised there and it's easy to tell he enjoys sharing about this city. We stopped at each major attraction as well as a local artist shop that was an added bonus. For this price, don't think twice - absolutely worth it!
