This was great. It was NOT a long strenuous bike trip. It was PERFECT for moving around over a pretty big area of the old city to get a lay of the land. Covered lots more distance than you could on a walking tour. However it was like a walking tour in that you would stop every 5 minutes or so, the guide would give a little history / background, then you'd move on. Was not a problem with cars - more people to avoid than cars. Lasted about 2 hours. Good overview of the city - do this the first day then go back on foot to the places that interested you. Please try to get to the meeting place early or at least on time to not inconvenience the other riders.
My friend and I were looking for a quick tour of the city since we used Florence as a home base for a couple day trips. To our surprise the two hour bike tour was our favorite part of visiting Florence! The tour guide ivanka was awesome and she even bought us a gelato that was included in the nominal tour price. There were 6 of us in the group and the only advice I have is to watch out for the scooters and the stupid people texting and walking. We went at 6pm and was perfect because the ponte vecchio was beautifully lit up at night : definitely would do it again!!

When we arrived in Florence it was raining for our originally scheduled tour, and the office was able to change it to the next day. We had a great time. Our guide was incredible. I just wish we could remember her name. We loved the tour and have recommended it to several friends who are going to be in Florence soon. We were able to see all of the highlights of the city and learn a lot about the history. I highly recommend this tour to everyone!!
Really enjoyed this tour. It was great to get a feel for the city and the guide was so knowledgable she made it interesting and fun. Good value for money.
Good initiation to Florence and its history. Sabilla the tour guide was great!
I loved this bike tour very easy going and understand a little more about the layout of Florence and where which attractions I wanted to explore further later. It was safe to ride and our guide instructed as to the rules of the road.
Sabilla was amazing! Best way to start the trip. Florence is a very historical city so this was a great way to see everything and pick and choose what looked interesting to visit again.
Our family really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very pleasant, engaging and knowledgeable. I would not recommend this for younger children. The Maneuvering through traffic and the many pedestrians was very tricky. But still a fun and quick way to see Florence.
This tour is a must do! We biked with ease to all of the best Florence attractions and a couple of gems that were off our radar. A great way to start off any visit to Florence. My teen enjoyed it as much as I and we especially loved crossing the Arno for a gelato stop!
