City bike tour was a perfect way to see the city in a short amount of time. Vanessa was my guide and she was amazing!! Loves her city and loves telling people about it. She is a wonderful story teller! Very animated. She made the tour perfect! The gelato stop helped too!

This tour was WELL WORTH THE MONEY! Our family of 4 - including two teenagers - LOVED this tour. Our guide was knowledgable, fun and peppy, showing us all of the major piazzas of Florence in style. We saw a lot more by bike than we would have by foot. But you might not want to go on this tour if you don't feel confident biking along a crowded street. You don't have to be an expert, but need to be a steady, stable rider to follow the tour.

The tour was split into two small tours. Both were very informative and enjoyable. We found all the information interesting and relavent. Wishing we did more bike tours at other cities now!

Sarah was simply amazing. The tour was well-paced and fun. So wonderful to learn some Florentine history from someone so knowledgeable and who knows how to present it in such an interesting manner.
We would highly recommend this tour.
Thank you Sarah

The bike tour was a really fun way for our kids (ages 10, 12, 15, and 16) to get an overview of the city. Our guide, Katarina, was excellent and great with the kids. And the added gelato was a nice touch. Definitely recommend.

Eleonora, our first guide for the city bike ride, was amazing! Pretty knowledgeable and she answered every question. Our second guide for the Academy Museum was Barbara and she was also great! Overall fun and great experience

Awesome tour! Having never done a bike tour before, it was great to see how much more ground you can cover than in a walking tour. You really get to see so many of the big-name sites in a short period of time. It's perfect for someone who's visiting Florence for the first time and wants to get a good overview of the main sights. And, for someone like me who loves being on a bike, it's a rad feeling cruising through the narrow streets of Florence with all its traffic and pedestrians.

Enjoyed the tour of the Accademia and the David was impressive. Loved the bike tour... Great way to get to know the city. Very fun time.

We were very happy that we chose this tour of Accademia Gallery. Our guide Barbara was excellent. The insight she offered into the history and details of the various pieces made the visit much better. We would not have had the same experience if we had walked through on our own.

An added benefit was we did not have to wait in a long line to get in!

The city bike tour portion was rained out so we did not get to do that part.

Great fun and awesome way to see many sites in Florence. Recommedation - do not take the bike tour on Thursdays and Saturdays when the cruise ships are in port. The guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly throughout the entire tour especally during the Accademia Gallery Tour. We would highly recommend this tour!

The tour guide did not say much when we made the walk to the Accademia Gallary, but once inside, she was very passionate and informative. Unfortunately, since the tour was delayed due to some people being late, my party had to leave the museum tour a bit early to make it to the City Bike Tour portion of the trip. This was a fantastic way to see areas away from the city's main center.

The tour takes in the major sights of Florence - the best part was the Accademia Gallery to view the statue of David with our wonderful and informative guide Marco

Absolutely loved the Bike Tour! It was a great way to familiarize ourselves with the city as well as learn about the architecture and culture.

Skip the Line to view the Statue of David was convenient.

The bike tour portion of the tour was fine (this is actually two separate tours sold together at a discount) - we had already seen many of the sights the day before under our own steam, but this was a good way to get some history on the sights wthout feeling the need to take millions of photographs. It also inspried us to see a few different places in the following days. The skip-the-line Accademia tour later in the day was also good, but brief. Fortunately you are able to stay in the Accademia after the tour ends, which is why if you do both tours, do the bike tour in the morning and Accademia in the afternoon. I recommend the book cafe opposite the Accademia entrance for a quiet cup of tea afterwards :)

Great experience. However I think it could improve by adding microphone and earplug so the guide could talk during the rides but also to be connected with he entire group all the time as with so many people sometimes was hard to follow right behind her

Fabulous guide and great tour. But too many people meant it took a long time getting started and a couple of people weren't confident on bikes so the combo meant it felt like we spent a lot of time waiting.

This tour was very good - no promised cycle helmets and welcome not very friendly at the start from the Florence town staff. But guides friendly and knowledgable.
