The Bike Tour was an excellent way to visit the country side of Tuscany. The hills can be tough at times, but it was comforting to know that there was a van following behind if you wanted to take a break. The lunch and wine tasting at the end were a nice reward. Our tour leader Freddie was awesome! He gave us extra insight on his hometown of Florence, paid attention to everyone in our group and did a great job of balancing professionalism and humour. He was new but we wouldn't have known if he had not told us. His positivity and encouragement definitely helped us bike up those hills! Our driver Claudia was lovely too. She, as an environmental guide, was able to supply extra information about the nature around the vineyards. Claudia and Freddie made a great team! Thanks to them both. A highly recommended experience!

Just loved this tour. Our guide was very knowledgable, and safety conscience of all. I do recommend you do a bit of hill training before you go. It is not an easy ride. We bike so we're prepare. Give it a go, you can always walk, or get a lift along the way. Lunch was fab as well, and our group was fun lot.

This was one of the best parts of our three week stay in Italy. The tour of the Ruffino winery and the lunch topped off one amazing day riding through Tuscany.

This tour was a great way to see (and be IN) the Tuscan countryside! The bike ride was a little strenuous, but if you're active at all it's very do-able. The views left me speechless. If you have a GoPro, bring it since on the downhills there won't be time to stop for pics. Most of the magic is going downhill and seeing all of that at high speeds anyway. On the uphills, take breaks for pics and feel free to take your time. Our group went really fast and ended up taking a detour to another village. It was fun but a lot of extra work. If you feel like you can't make it, the tour guides follow you with a van so you can ditch the bike and hitch a ride. But if I can do this bike ride, anybody can! If you are still wary of making it to the end on a bike, consider doing the vespa tour, hike or horseback riding. Anything you can do to explore Tuscany from within will be well worth it. Each tour does the same lunch at a venue in Tuscany (which is absolutely gorgeous and quintessentially Tuscany). Lunch provided was a buffet, typical Tuscan food, with two glasses of wine. What a great way to see these views. Seriously. It was a dream. SIGN UP NOW!

Awesome bike tour. Staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We showed up on the wrong day for our tour but they got us in. We enjoyed this tour so much that we signed up for a wine tour with the same tour operator the next day.

La Toscana cycle ride was FABULOUS, views stunning, drop in at local deli/café etc welcomes and so worthwhile as it was an opportunity for a rest stop and for others an option to taste local food which was consumed with relish. I'm an ardent cyclist and did at times find the route "challenging" as some of the slopes were heavy going. Do not be dissuaded, all of our party did so at some point en route. We all got back on bikes and pedalled as best as we could. There was a follow up vehicle to help out for assistance or if too weary an option to be driven all or some of the route if u choose. It's not a casual cycle ride by any means and you are encourages to complete, nonetheless this tour gets u out and about to enjoy the scenery, taste local produce with lunch included at end and a chance to cycle in and amongst this glorious landscape. Enjoy and absolutely recommended.
