Tour guide (Leo) was knowledgeable and friendly. Such a great way to soak in Tuscany. I really enjoyed having the option to bike up the challenging hills, but the van is there to jump into if your legs are toast. Great trip, highly recommend.
Hi, we thoroughly enjoyed this bike tour. The ride was so lovely through the country side. We were well looked after safety wise with a guide at the front and a van at the back. Everyone was catered for. Lunch was exceptional plenty of the proper Italian food served to perfection. I would recommend this trip.
Amazing, wonderful and beautiful. What fun! I would highly recommend this tour.

A great day out in the country! I suggest if you want to ride and have fun pay the extra for the electric bike! Money well spent! The five hills are big but with my electric bike a breeze. All the others had normal bikes although excellent as well most wished they had taken the electric choice. The scenery is fantastic and the food/wine a welcome finish awaiting. Awesome day out.
First, a warning: this is NOT leisurely by any means. I like to think I'm in pretty good shape, I take 4-5 spin classes a week, and this was the hardest bike ride I have ever been on. If you aren't up for a challenge, pay the 20 extra and get the motorized bike. Maybe that's what they meant by leisurely bike ride.
The tour itself, was great, and I'd totally do it again/recommend it with the motorized bike! The views are amazing, and it's a nice way to get out in the fresh air, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The downside is that you ride the bike to a winery and do a tour, but you don't actually get to taste any wines until the very end during lunch. I personally think they should include a tasting there.
Our guide was awesome - he was very personable, had a good sense of humor, and kept us motivated for those hills while teaching us about the areas at each stop along the way. It's a nice way to get insight from someone who great up there that we otherwise wouldn't have.
Loved this biking tour. Great tour guide, fabulous scenery and good variety of wines and olive oil tasting.
This was a fun bike tour to see a little bit of Tuscany. Do not be fooled though. The route is very hilly and the bikes are not real great and could use some attention. The lunch afterward though was fantastic and such a great reward for all of the hard work! My husband and I are avid bikers and we found this to be very challenging.
I loved this tour! Our guide was friendly and informative of everything we saw. He was patient with some of us who were not experience bike riders yours truly here. The winery and the country side was stunning! Best tour I went on through out my whole trip in Italy! Highly recommend!
The Bike Tour was an excellent way to visit the country side of Tuscany. The hills can be tough at times, but it was comforting to know that there was a van following behind if you wanted to take a break. The lunch and wine tasting at the end were a nice reward. Our tour leader Freddie was awesome! He gave us extra insight on his hometown of Florence, paid attention to everyone in our group and did a great job of balancing professionalism and humour. He was new but we wouldn't have known if he had not told us. His positivity and encouragement definitely helped us bike up those hills! Our driver Claudia was lovely too. She, as an environmental guide, was able to supply extra information about the nature around the vineyards. Claudia and Freddie made a great team! Thanks to them both. A highly recommended experience!
