, Feb 2020
If you are in Florence and if you can ride a bike, this is an excellent activity to do. Not only you get to go to different iconic places in 2 hours but my guide, Sophia, is extremely knowledgeable. It's a must do tour when you are in Florence.
Tour guide, Raffaello, was so passionate about the history of Florence and also added great humour into it. Felt very safe on the bikes as he ensured a clear passage through pedestrians & along the roads, always checking we were okay. Told us information about places you would never know by just walking by.
We liked the tour very much. Sophia was a very nice and friendly guide. Her informations were interesting and helpfully. We enjoyed the tour very much!
We would recommend the tour at all people who are looking for a special and individual way to discover Firenze :-)

Tuscany Bike or E-Bike Tour from Florence with Tuscan lunch
Tuscany Bike Tour
, Nov 2019
This was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip to Italy! If you are an active person and like being outside, you will love this! The landscape is everything you have seen in the pictures of Tuscany. If you are a novice bike rider or not in shape, you might have a hard time as it was very rigorous (for a 53 year old woman in fair/good shape). You can ride in the van if it gets to hard. The hills are very challenging! The meal afterwards was farm-fresh and absolutely delicious!
The Tuscany Bike Tour from Florence was fun. The shuttle bus took us to a location where we picked up our bikes and helmets. From here we left with our guide. The majority of the trip on was paved roads. There were some hills along the way, but the guide always waited for us. Toward the end of our trip, we did some off road trails to get to the winery. These trails were a little challenging as some of them were washed out. You always had the option to walk your bike, or hop in the van before the off road trails began. The wine tour was interesting. The snacks and countryside were wonderful. A short trip back into town for wine tasting and a delicious meal.

Florence Electric Bike Tour with Farm and Wine Bar Visit
Great Afternoon Biking in Countryside
, Nov 2019
We had a wonderful family biking trip just outside of Florence with our family. We visited a beautiful farm and stopped on the way back to see the city from up high. Our tour guide was great and the eBikes made it so easy.
Whenever I travel I like to do a bike tour to cover a lot of ground & stay active. If you have an afternoon spare this tour is a relaxing & lovely way to explore Florence!
This is not a challenging or strenuous tour it is very relaxing. Our guide was so lovely & informative.
Even though our tour was shortened to 2 hours from 4 hours which was disappointing and even though we had another 'glitch', our guide Alessia was fantastic in how she handled it and it actually made the tour more memorable! She made sure we had a great tour which we did. The ebikes are all that is needed to get you to the outskirts of Florence and we absolutely loved the views plus the stops for pictures and local info. We definitely recommend this tour! Thank you Alessia! Hope to take the longer tour with you the next time :) Mike and Rosa

Electric Bike Night Tour of Florence with amazing view from Michelangelo Square
Great way to see Florence!
, Sep 2019
We had a great night on our electric bikes. Our guide Gabriel was great. Since it ended up being just two of us on his tour, we talked about what we wanted to see. With little to no traffic, along with many bike lanes along the way, it was a stress-free ride. And using the electric bike on those hills came in handy. Totally recommend!

Constanza made Firenze come alive for us ..... even in pouring rain . She managed a diverse group and all of us felt acknowledged and attended to . Her knowledge of art and Firenze itself was outstanding and grew our appreciation grow even deeper . We all touched "the pig " so will be back .... Grazie Constanza
I came to Florence after hearing such great things from my coworkers about the beautiful art, history, and food culture. With a recommendation to see the David, I found this tour. I arrived to the meetup point, which was easy to find. A few tour staffers provided headsets for us to hear our guide as the places we would visit tended to be on the noisier side. In hindsight, this was a wonderful touch because I underestimated exactly how busy some of our stops would be. Angelo Alterio, our guide, took us through Florence to many popular places before we stopped at the Galleria dell’Accademia, which houses the statue of David. Getting into the museum was a breeze with our skip the line tickets. I went in October and the line was still halfway down the street! Once we were in, Angelo provided a very thorough background of the historical period in which Michelangelo carved the David as a way to give us the necessary context for why the statue was/is so important. It was breathtaking. After our stop there, we visited other Florentine highlights. I learned so much and each place was equally instagrammable. Upon completion of the tour, Angelo chatted with us about the city and even offered suggestions for places to eat that were less touristy. What a gem. He is great! Recommend for anyone who wants to get a full view of Florence in a few hours. This really helped me figure out where I wanted to spend lots of time for the rest of my vacation.
Skip the line to see Michelangelo’s "David" at the Accademia Gallery before enjoying a walking tour of Florence.

Florence Sightseeing Walking Tour with a Local Guide
, Dec 2019
Had a nice tour with our guide. Very detailed and gave a thorough explanation of everything we were looking at. Saw pretty much all the highlights. She kept checking in with us to ensure we were good. Solid tour!
Our guide Daniel met us at the station and tailored our walk to our specific wants. Two hours probably wasn’t long enough but we were ready for a rest and enjoyed our lunch at a restaurant recommended by Daniel. An excellent and interesting tour.
This was amazing- exactly what we wanted. We did this tour shortly after we arrived in Florence. This gave us the opportunity to see how truly Florence is a walking city and what to expect and to make sure we didn't miss. We loved our tour guide, Alicea, she was very knowledge and fun! Thank you!

Florence with Marilena
, Feb 2020
Marilena was our guide and we appreciated her informative and fascinating narrative. She helped us see differences in the arts depending on the time frame and truly helped us appreciate the wonderful art we were seeing. On the way to Uffizi, we stopped at the Medici home and admired the villa. She told us that a 12 year old Michelangelo was “discovered” and brought to live here for a few years! I would highly recommend her tour!
Our guide was amazing! We are people who don’t know much about art but She explained every little detail to us. From the stunning statue of David to the intricate paintings in the Uffizi, with this tour we truly experienced everything!
Missed the tour in the morning to see David! But did the afternoon tour~
, Jan 2020
We missed the morning tour by 5 mins as we got delayed getting across town to the Accademia! Had to get a refund on the tour! The afternoon tour with Angelo for the Uffizi was very entertaining! Even my 16 year old had fun!

If you don't have the Duomo on your list of places to visit then you really need to put it on. Upon first seeing the outside it really takes your breath away. Our only negative was that the meeting place was a little hard to find. Once we started we had our headphones and our guide was great. The headphones did cut out a little bit at times but you were able to hear most of it. You skip the line which was great and see the inside of the base. Be prepared to climb a lot of stairs but the view is worth it up the top. A truly amazing experience.
