As incredible as strolling around Florence and visiting the Duomo and all museums can be, if you have a little sense of adventure take this half day tour! We were met by our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide near Piazza Della Signoria. The size of the tour is kept to less than ten so everyone can stay together on the bikes. If you haven't ridden an electric bike, you are in for a treat. The bike is pedaled like a regular bike, but when you need a little juice to get up a hill, you twist the handle and then feel like you could win the Tour de France! Navigating the roads to leave the city will put you in traffic at times and on bike paths at times. It was exhilarating but you definitely need to stay alert! The tour takes you into the hills surrounding Florence, first to Fiosole, a small town overlooking Florence, then to an organic farm, Piazza Michaelangelo, and Basilica San Miniato al Monte. Every stop has incredible views of the city. We took the afternoon tour and at the Basilica we were able to witness the monks doing Gregorian chants. We ended the tour weaving down the hillside roads back into Florence at dusk with the twinkling lights coming on. Just magical. We were then treated to wine, cheese and meat at a local wine bar. On our tour we met a delightful couple from England who we visited with for two hours after parting with our wonderful tour guide.
Great tour!!! We got to see SO much that we would definitely not have seen! The bikes were easy to maneuver and used very little effort even going up huge hills. The country side was spectacular and our guide was knowledgeable. The wine bar was a lovely little treat at the end. I highly recommend this tour!
We had the most fun of our ten days in Italy on this tour! Fun! Informative! Extremely gracious guide and manager! Seeing sites we wouldn and #39;t have seen on our own! Effortless biking! Most highly recommended!
Totally brilliant tour with a fab guide. The e-bikes are such good fun and easy to ride allowing access to areas that would be hard to get to on a normal bike without a high level of fitness. Loved the introduction to the local wine bar at the end of the tour... wonderful experience. Do this tour!!!
We had such a fun evening out with Alessia. It was a small group of us only 4 plus the guide. There is some need to get adjusted to the style of electric bike vs. pedal bike but once we got that down we were off, and the electric motor truly made traveling up hill a breeze. We learned a lot about the area and saw areas of Florence that we wouldn't have been able to see on foot. Only challenges, were maneuvering in traffic and through crowds of people specifically at Piazzale Michaelangelo. Our wine and crostini to cap off the evening was fabulous! Would highly recommend this tour/outing!
We loved this electric bike tour of Florence a great way to see this beautiful city and surrounding area
We had such a great time on this tour the bikes made it all so easy. Alessia hope that's spelt right was a great guide, she took good care of us all whilst negotiating the streets through Florence. The views from the organic farm, Plazza Michelangelo and the church were stunning. The tour ended at a wine bar with delicious food and wine. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour guide. Right balance of fun, info, free time. Loved the bikes. Great way to get a sense of Florence!
Our family of four loved this tour. It was a great way to see the Tiscan countryside and the views over Florence are breathtaking! Finishing the tour with a nice glass of wine and some italian snacks was fantastic. I encourage anyone to give this tour a go!
Our family of 5 just took the electric bike tour with Alessia while in Florence. We all enjoyed trying the electric bikes. The scenery was amazing. We went up the hills on both sides of Florence and met the owner at the organic olive oil farm. Getting away from the city for beautiful views with a very nice host was a great afternoon in Florence.
Had a great time on this tour. Grabriel our guide was excellent. We had not ridden Ebikes before, but found they were great for riding up the hills. Anybody considering this tour just do it.
Highly recommend this fun tour! Great and easy way to see Florence!
We loved this tour and highly recommend it! We got to see a lot of the Florence countryside and the electric bikes were very easy to ride. Our guide was fantastic and customized the experience for us!
This was a fun tour. It had been years since the wife and I had ridden a bike so it definitely took practice time. Alicia was great and allowed us the practice on the pedestrian street in front of their shop. Since their shop is off the beaten path, there were no pedestrians in our way. These bikes are motorized, so when you pedal it runs the motor for a few seconds and accelerates the bike. So you do not want to be pedaling if you are going to do a sharp turn. So we practiced and then took off. The start of the tour is along a busy road along the river and has a lot of cars and scooters. But we just followed Alicia and stayed to the right or in some situations we were in the road like a car or scooter. Most of the tour was on bike paths or country roads. The organic farm was interesting as well as the Piaza Michelangelo overlooking the city. We then went to the highest point in Florence and had a very scenic break. Then back to the shop, where we dropped the bikes and then Alicia took us to a bar around the corner for cold drinks, bread, meat and cheese. I highly recommend Alicia at FloRent thru Viator.
Most amazing tour we have had in Europe so far. Good for all ages! Don and #39;t have to be an athlete to get all around the hills of Florence. Beautiful views , knowledgable guide and a fun group!!! Loved this tour!!! Everyone should see Florence this way!
We really enjoyed our Electric Bike tour of Florence and surrounding countryside. Our guide, Gabriel, was very attentive, ensuring we had smooth passage around both the streets and country roads, and was very knowledgeable about beautiful Florence. The Electric bikes made some of the more challenging hills almost effortless and suitable for most people who have had some previous experience riding bikes. The glass of wine enjoyed at a local wine bar was a fitting end to the trip and rounded the day off beautifully.
Had a great time with Gabriel's guided tour! My sister and I were the only ones on the tour, and absolutely loved seeing the areas outside the city of Florence! The olive oil farm was amazing, and we learned a lot about the process the farmers use to make the oil. The biking is a bit more strenuous than expected, so I would only suggest this for those capable of light to medium level activity for 3-4 hours straight. Topped off with a snack and glass of wine and it was the perfect morning/early afternoon! Thank you Gabriel for the great tour!
So much fun and Gabriele had a great knowledge of his beautiful Florence. We met amazing people and had a blast, looking forward to doing it again next year :-)
This was a real experience! It was lovely to get out of the city and into the country and Gabriele was the best guide imaginable. He mixed history with current information in a delightful way. The electric bicycles take a little getting used to, but they certainly take the work out of pedalling up hills. All in all, a wonderful way to spend a morning!
This was the absolute HIGHLIGHT of our trip to Florence! We spent four hours with Gabriele and felt like we saw things we'd never have known existed if not of this fabulous tour. I you are thinking about this, I can tell you without hesitation that its 110 worth the time and money!
This was my husbands first bike tour and it was the best. The electric bikes made travel very easy even on the hills. Our guide was very nice and informative. We took the afternoon tour which made the last stop of wine and cheese a great ending to the trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone who can ride a bike.
Gabrielle was fantastic. We only had a short time in Florence, and wanted to see as much as we could. He was knowledgeable, and very engaging. The bikes were very easy to use as well. The wine bar at the end was a fantastic touch. By far one of my favorite days on trip.
This was our second E-bike vacation tour and it was exceptional. Our guide a young Florence native was very knowledgeable and gave us superb views of Florence.My wife and I are both in our 60's and the bikes were so easy to maneuver. We are so glad we had this experience and would suggest if your looking for something a little different to do give it a try.
