We had a wonderful enthusiastic tour guide (and his assistant). It was fabulous,
though a bit scary dodging all the people. Great fun!

It was a dream to ride a bike in the humble and delicate streets of Florence. Also, was a great way to tour the historical and political sites of the city as they are really all pretty near to each other. We loved the bike tour.

Great way to get an overview of the city when you arrive, see the major sites and get some exercise. I'm not a bike rider but these bikes were comfortable and the route was mostly flat so it was easy and FUN. Not to mention the amazing grapefruit gelato at the stop near the PItti Palace. Many thanks to Vanessa for a great history and city experience.

Vanessa was amazing!! She was informative and so entertaining. She brought the history of Florence alive. What a thrill to ride through the piazzas and streets of Florence as if we were residents not tourists!

Great way to learn the city of Florence, meet some new people, and get gelato from a spot that the locals go to!

This was a great bike tour. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. We went on bikes and saw most of the hot spots in the city and had a background on all of them given to us by the tour guide. We also stopped for some nice gelato along the way. Tour was definitely a very fair price and very fun.

This was THE best way to see Florence in a short amount of time. Vanessa, our guide was great - informative, charming and funny. It was fun riding through Florence, a bit challenging at times (more with avoiding tourists than vehicles!) but definitely a MUST DO highlight of our trip to Italy.

Excellent guide and tour! The meeting place was very convenient and the guide very friendly and knowledgeable. Although the tour was excellent, I did not see as much advantage over a walking tour as was our Viator bike tour of Rome. We were in some places that were so crowded with pedestrians that it was almost difficult to ride. We did see all of the major sights and stopped for a Gelato that was included with the tour.

Although the wait for late arrivals (rather than start on time) was frustrating, the tour was otherwise terrific. The bikes were comfy and in good condition, and our knowledgeable guide managed to navigate a well-paced course through the busy streets to a remarkable range of "sights", providing an informative and interesting hiSTORY of Firenze, its people and architecture. The size of our group (about 10) was manageable, but this number of riders may not "work" if (m)any did not have basic bike etiquette/handling skills.

The bike tour was a great way to see Florence and get some history when you only have one day. It would be helpful to have more detailed directions to the bike office that identify landmarks, but people are very helpful with giving directions. We felt safe riding on the streets the most dangerous part was the other bike riders in the group who weren't as experienced on bikes. The tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeble and spoke excellent English.
