This was an excellent tour and opportunity to see the lovely Tuscan countryside when in Florence. We booked this on our first day in Florence, and it afforded us a great opportunity to orient ourselves to the city and escape the oppressive crowds of tourists in the downtown core. We met in front of a coffee shop near the Piazza della Signoria and Alyssia led us the block or two to their bike office. It took only a couple of minutes to get the hang of them in their quiet street as we had never tried them before. Although it was a scorching hot day, the e-bikes allowed us to sail in the breeze and up into the hills of Fiesole with minimal effort. You wont believe how easily you ascend relatively steep terrain! In addition to visiting the organic olive oil farm Fiesole which, unluckily for us was closed, due to it being a Sunday, we whipped over to the opposite heights and views from Piazzale Michelangelo, as well as the monastery: San Miniato al Monte. There we heard the hauntingly beautiful Gregorian chant tones emanating from the church which had begun evening vespers. There is a little shop there which sells goods made by the monks. We were able to take some astounding pictures throughout due to our birds eye views. We had ample opportunities to take breaks, drinks, and pictures. To cap it off, we were given wine and snacks at the foot of Ponte Vecchio. Alyssia was a lovely, friendly tour guide and we really appreciated the way she shared information about her life in Italy. We wish her and her partner much success in their business.
What a wonderful way to get out of the city center and see Florence from the surrounding hills! Fantastic experience that our family loved. A highlight of our vacation!
My husband and I had a great morning touring all over Florence. Our guide took us to less touristy areas so we could see the true beauty of the city. The electric bikes made the journey very easy and enjoyable.
This was a great tour. The ride was very scenic and our tour guide was knowledgable and personable.
Our guide, Alicia, and her partner Gabriel were very well-organized, helpful, and delightful! We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this personalized tour!!!!
This was one of the top highlights of our family trip to Italy. Our guide, Gabriele, one of the co-owners of the business, was fantastic. He was very engaging and friendly and we saw so many beautiful sites in the hills overlooking Florence. Riding the electric bikes is so much fun particularly in the heat of the summer. I can't recommend this tour enough....book it...it's fantastic!!
Fantastic way to get round a beautiful city and out into the surrounding countryside. Very little effort required despite some very large hills. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to see a bit more of Florence!
A very enjoyable and enlightening bike ride with Alessia, the co-owner of Florence Electric Bike. Alessia was very knowledgeable, with an enchanting personality, that made the whole ride exquisite! We felt very safe as we biked on only a few streets, with most of the riding on back roads or dedicated bike lanes. There was a bit of an ascent up to Fiesole, but the e-bike made it a breeze. Overall, a most delightful experience.
We would recommend this tour to anyone!! It was the perfect way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time, and the bikes were so much fun to ride. Our guide, Alessia, was dynamic, friendly, patient, and knowledgeable, and the tour was the perfect mix of sightseeing, exercise, wine, and fun.
Our family absolutely LOVED this. A beautiful afternoon riding through the streets of Florence and then along the countryside. From one end of Florence to the other, and to die for pictures!! Thanks Alessia and Gabriele for giving us such a great tour and giving us such a great impression of Florence. We will remember this day forever.
This bike tour was really great -- a highlight of our trip! The smell of the gardens as we rode past, the scenery of the Arno River and Tuscan countryside and feeling like a local as we rode through morning traffic in a part of Florence that few tourists see, made the tour exceptional.
The bikes are really easy to ride. It was such a pleasure to climb the hills so easily. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is comfortable riding a bike in moderate traffic.
The young couple who own and run the company were delightful and well organized. I wish them well! I highly recommend this tour!
Excellent tour. Saw most of the historical sites. Easy ride for this mature couple. Would have been good to have identity vests on each rider so that others would know we were together
This tour was the highlight of our trip to Florence. It was great fun riding the Electric Bikes and the tour itself was amazing! You will visit a olive tree farm and also go to the top of Fllorence to Michelangelo's Piazza and the views are fantastic. Our guide was excellent and so very personable. She told us much about history and also made us feel right at home. The wine and snack at the end of the tour is a great way to wrap up the day. We HIGHLY recommend this tour! You will NOT be disappointed.
We had different guides for the morning and afternoon. Both were really excellent. Well worth the money for all the information. Would highly recommend
We highly, highly recommend this tour. Due to a mistake on our part we arrived at the incorrect meeting point for the tour. We had missed an update. Gabrielle put us at ease and used his excellent people skills to turn our shaky start to the day around and get the tour rolling. His expertise in getting us up to speed on riding an electric bike in Florence ensured we had a safe and enjoyable trip. The standout for us was Gabrielle's knowledge and passion for Florence and the beautiful surrounds of Fiesole. His easy going charm and friendly nature made the tour a fun way to see the city from a different angle and soak up some culture from the back of an electric bike. We would do it again and hopefully one day we can. David and Tina - Australia.
I booked this as a surprise for my wife as we were in Florance for 4 days, it was the highlight of the trip for us,
the trip into Tuscany was so easy on the bikes, the hills stood no chance, and it was so real as we were in the air with the smells and sounds.
the explanations some times lacked detail but were delivered in a charming way and we enjoyed all the other "local" details the trip took 4 hours and we enjoyed every second.
Our electric bike tour of Florence was amazing. Our guide Gabriel was very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of Florence. We rode up the hills of Florence to Fattoria Di Maiano olive orchid and tasted the best olive oil. The tour lasted about 4 hours and we didn't want to stop. We highly recommend this tour. The electric bikes are easy to ride and you get exercise at the same time. Gabriel and his girlfriend own the e-bike tour company and went out of their way to make our short stay in Florence memorable. We would love to return to Florence and would go on another e-bike tour with Gabriel.

The electric bike tour is the perfect way to get just outside of the city without having to take a crowded tour bus. My guide Gabriel was great to work with and very knowledgeable about the history of Florence. Also, the beauty of the electric bikes is that anyone who can ride a bike and has even a moderate fitness level can tackle the hills just outside the city. In all, a great way to spend a half day away from the tourist crowds and experience the rest of the city. Highly recommended!
Great way to see a bit of Florence and the immediate countryside. Electric bikes are the way to go!
Every tourist in Florence should do this tour. Alessia from the company that rent the electric bikes was very good though she was ill that day with a flu. The electric bike is very easy to ride.
