I loved this tour! I almost decided to cancel because the forecast called for rain but I am so glad I didn't. I didn't realize that in order to get to the Tuscan country side we had to ride a little bit on the roads of Florence, makes sense in retrospect but I didn't really think that through at first. I am not an avid biker nor am I in good shape at all but our guide, Bill, made sure everyone stayed safe on our ride, even the parts on the roads. There were a couple of hills that were rough but Bill reassured me that its ok to go slow and after each stretch or hill we took a break and he talked to us a little bit about our stopping point so I had time to catch my breath. He also gave us plenty of strategic stopping points for pictures. I loved biking through the countryside, it was truly beautiful! Villa Piazzole, where we stopped for our wine and cheese tasting, was wonderful. I got to learn about how they made wine and taste some of the wine and olive oil they make right there. It seemed very off the beaten path and private, it was nice to get away from the more crowded tourist areas. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Florence and would like a unique taste of what its like outside of the city, it was a truly enjoyable time!
Even though it was his day off, due to some miscommunication, I was still accommodated. I got a private tour of the tuscan country and it made my trip all the more memorable.
Thanks a lot. I highly recommend it

Fantastic tour, our guide Michelangelo was very knowledgeable. On the day that other group canceled so it was just 2 of us and the guide which was great. The bike ride is up a lot of hills but is worth it for what you see. Highly recommend
Lorenzo was absolutely amazing!! My mom (57, not sporty) and I 29 (athletic) had a fantastic time. If you want some activity, true look at local/small Tuscan run business, and a great guide for any person interested. Will do again if back in Florence!
when we booked the trip we were a little hesitant about combining wine, bikes and traffic,but it was wonderful! We met Michelangelo and he had us fit with a bike and off to the countryside. What a wonderful way to see Florence ! We arrived at the vineyard and had a tour and a snack with olive oil and bread and some cheese and a taste of red and white wine. Nothing that would impair our driving : The ride back we saw beautiful scenery as well as getting ideas of places we wanted to venture back to later in our trip. The group we were with seemed in pretty good shape and we were able to bike all the hills without getting off the bike. This was a fantastic tour
Really great tour, get to see sights of the city, hear about the making of olive oil, see the win cellars, taste great food and wine.
Our tour guide was AMAZING, very informative, funny, knowledgeable, he really made the tour excellent. Thanks Simone :
Hands down the best thing I did in Italy. I would absolutely recommend.
Honestly, even as a fit 27 year old, I had significant difficulty getting up those hills. However, after the wine, snacks, and breathtaking views, I almost forgot how difficult the first leg of the ride was! The views were absolutely captivating, and the ride back wad MUCH easier with downhill!
We were, my boyfriend and I, in Florence in September, and we chose a bike tour to visit places further away from the touristic places of the city.
We rode the bicycles in a group of 8 people, guided by the experienced and kind Bill, to know the countryside and a Vila that produces wine and olive oil. Besides tasting delicious wines, it was a wonderful bike ride, with an ice cream in a marvelous gelateria, and ending at the Piazzale Michelangelo, from where you can see the beautiful Firenze.
A wonderful morning out on the bikes in the hills outside Florence, away from the tourist crowds. An excellent tour guide who made the trip enjoyable and a great way to be active in the city. Would recommend to those on a tight schedule
