Absolutely loved it. Our guide was wonderful! Our kids loved it too - and the gelato at the end of the tour was awesome - visited daily after that
We had a fantastic time with our guide Fabio. To start with the day had rain in the forecast so we had a choice to bike and come back need be or do a walking tour. We opted for the walking tour as rain looked imminent and Fabio did not disappoint. He is a master of knowledge of Florence and shared many stories that brought Florence to life as well. It was a highlight of our stay in Florence and would definitely do again on the bikes to go a little further out. The gelato was amazing as well. So glad we spent the time to do and Fabio offered some great suggestions of places to see on our stay as well. Well done!
I enjoyed this tour very much. I ride my bike in traffic in New York City regularly, so I wasn't in any way taken aback by the traffic in Florence, which can be a little daunting at points if you're not an experienced rider. Having said that, a family that included two small children was on our tour, and they seemed to have no problem so I wouldn't let that dissuade me. You just have to follow other riders and be alert. There really wasn't any danger. The tour took us to places I might not otherwise have explored, the other side of the Arno, for instance. It was a nice way to see the city, and, for me, a relief from walking. I enjoyed the tour.
This tour was perfect for our first day in Florence. We got a nice overview of Florence on this ride. Our guide was fabulous. She was very knowledgeable, incredibly patient and conscious of our safety. The bike ride itself was perfect for any level bike rider but I will say that the vehicle and pedestrian traffic are a challenge during busier times in Florence. I highly recommend this tour if you are looking for an easy bike ride to take in the sites.
Great bike tour. Our tour guide Fabio was funny and knowledgeable.
Our tour guide was awesome. She was totally excited to tell you about the history of her city, Florence. She gave us a radio and earbuds so we could hear here everywhere. There is no way we could have covered by walking what we covered by bike. She was so enthused and truly enjoyed this tour. It was sporty at times with cars and pedestrians, but well worth it.
Our tour guide was excellent. She was very enthused and you could tell that she love telling you about her city, you had a radio and earbuds and she explained everything, even while biking. There is no way my husband and I could have covered Florence walking. This bike tour took us all around. It was sporty at times, with cars and pedestrians, but well worth it.
Had a great time on the bike tour, our guide was fun and very informative. I would recommend you do this when you first arrive in Florence, it's a great way to see all the sights and you can then decide where you want to revisit in more depth.
We loved getting about Florence on our bikes. Our guide Fabio was a master at finding all the little lanes and alleyways to go down to avoid the traffic. He was very knowledgeable about the History and past times of Florence and gave us plenty of tips as to where to explore and galleries to attend. A great way to see the highlights and taste the best gelato ever! thanks Fabio
Florence is a rich city and our tour guild Francesca opened a treasure chest of history and beauty. Very knowledgeable of the ins and outs of the streets. Do have to say the Viator web site was challenging to navigate to find where to meet since initial location was vague, Center of City Which center?.
Oversll great tour
Our tour guide Julia was a local Florentine. Super friendly and knowledgeable and made it fun. Florence is crowded in the summer so it is short bike rides and stops and get to know the history about the town. Gelato stop included.
So great- wound up being just the two of us and our tour guide. She was so, so sweet. Showed us all around the city and told us about local italian life. Great paid for by the company gelato too! She gave us restaurant tips and we wound up eating at the greatest little pizza place because of her. I am not a very good biker, and I felt safe and comfortable the whole time! They have helmets you can borrow and baskets for bags or water bottles. Loved the whole ride. Highly recommend as a way to get a love of the city.
Excellent! I strongly recommend this tour. Great guide, great way to see the city.
The meeting point for this tour was fairly easy to find. The tour started on time with 8 participants. We collected our bikes and everyone was given a water bottle and off we went for an afternoon Florence adventure. Our tour guide was good in making sure the entire group was able to stay together with safety always in mind. We saw many interesting sights and learned many different facts. This is a great way to see Florence and I am glad that I did this tour. This is an easy bike tour with no hills or difficult terrain. Pace of biking is simple and most beginning bicycle riders would find this easy to do. I highly recommend it when visiting Florence.
Great way to see the city, hear history and experience the city streets riding like a local. The guide was informative and fun. They even stopped by a gelato shop and got everyone in the tour a free gelato which was a great touch. We were extremelly satisfied and the tour is well worth it.
Sibilla was great! I learned more about Florence from her on this tour than I did on any of my other tours combined. She was incredibly knowledgeable without being repetitive or boring. Her English was excellent and she was very easy to understand. We biked throughout almost the entire city, with occasional stops along the way for her to talk/explain. The stop at the end for gelato was just perfect and it was the best gelato I had the entire trip. The tour was absolutely delightful and I would highly recommend!
Booked this tour on recommendation from a previous traveler for the evening of our arrival to Florence. Was an excellent way to get your bearings on some of the main attractions and restaurants. Bikes were very easy to ride and terrain very manageable. Was visiting Florence during peak travel season, therefore did make it a bit tough to maneuver around pedestrians and cars. Our tour guide Valentina Guadagni was extremely professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I cannot say enough good things about her.... We highly recommend this bike tour !!be sure to include the gelato stop
We had a great time on our bike tour! It was our first introduction to Florence and it was perfect! Fabrio was tops!
Really enjoyed this Bike Tour. We only had one full day in Florence, before moving on to Tuscany, so this bike tour was just the job!
Approximately 2 and a half hours long, we got to see most of Florence, even included an ice cream 3
Our guide was Fabio, who was a really good guide, lots of interesting information, and history of Florence.
There were only 5 of us in total, a nice number. Cycling around Florence wasn't too daunting, though we did the 6 pm tour, ....maybe the earlier ones would have a lot busier.... and hotter! Mainly people that you have to avoid running into!
Well worth doing :-
Excellent! We decided to do this tour on our first day of arriving in Florence as a way to get our bearings around the city. Sabillia was our tour guide and she was excellent in her presentation and information about all the landmarks and about the history of the Italian states in general. The 2 hours went so quickly but we were ready for a cold beer in the heat of the afternoon by that stage. We would recommend the morning 1000am tour as the streets and roads were less crowded. We thought this was an excellent city tour with an excellent tour guide who bought us a traditional Ice Cream fit for a queen and gave us fantastic insight into the history of Florence and its most famous residents. We say the old town and new town a lot better on bike than we did by foot and were able to plan our walking days out better having seen a few of the sights and knowing how to get there. The only regret we have is that we did not carry any money with us on the tour as we were afraid of it falling out or being pickpocketed, otherwise we definitely would've thought to bring a tip for Sabillia and we were really sorry we hadn't because she was brilliant and deserved something extra considering she had 2 more tours to do that day in the heat!! We hope our recommendation gets you more tours though and thank you for being a superb guide.
