Hi We had a great cycle with Marco on the Venice Lido bike tour. I would highly recommend it. Marco was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Lido and the tour was great fun.

A must tour while in Venice
Marco, our knowledgeable guide, met us at the entrance to the People Mover with new bikes and then we took the ferry to Lido where we cycled at a comfortable pace around the island. We stopped frequently at various sites where the explanations were enhanced by pictures, maps and videos. We had a great time.
I love taking bike tours when I visit cities, and this tour did not disappoint. It was only me and 3 other people, besides the tour guide, so the tour felt very intimate. It was also super relaxing! This was the first thing I had scheduled upon my arrival to Venice, and it was a great way to relax from all of my traveling I know...sounds counter-intuitive.
It was everything we expected. Marco, our guide was easy to get a hold of, he tailored the tour to suit us as we were the only two people on it. I believe he even gave us a longer tour, stopping to explain everything as we went.
Great day out - refreshing to escape the bustle of Venice for a few hours and see 'the other side' of the Lagoon. Very well run, good commentary and easy pace. Recommended.
Thanks Marco, for getting us out of the hustle and bustle of Venice for a while for some easy cycling on great bikes.
Family of four , kids aged 10/11 really enjoyable ride around the Venice lido .
Peaceful lovely views easy cycling on good quality bikes with an excellent tour guide Marcos , stopped for a coffee halfway round aswell !
Would recommend it and we are planning another city cycle tour for our next holiday.Thanks for a lovely trip !
When the hustle, and crowds, and even more crowds finally get to you in Venice then this is the excursion for you. During our last visit to Venice we did not have enough time to visit Lido but this time it was on our Must do list. We stumbled upon this excursion on Viator. Knowing how much we enjoyed ourselves on our bike tour of the Appian Way we said this was the tour for us. And we had a great time.
We met at Tronchetto which is easy to get to from almost anywhere. Our guide and owner Marco arrived on time with the bikes and we boarded the ferry to Lido. The ferry ride is not included in the cost of the tour but it was covered by our Venice Unica City Pass. The ferry ride to Lido gave us spectacular and unencumbered views of the water side of St. Marks Square, the Doges Palace and other great scenery.
The bike ride itself was a great way to see a lot of the island and get a bit exercise a bit at the same time. We are both 50 and not exactly fit but we had no trouble keeping up with Marcos moderate place. We stopped many times along the way as Marco explained certain points of interest and the sustainability of the lagoon and eco-system. I think the lecture could use some work but for a start-up company the tour was very good. The entire route was 16 km and lasted about 4.5 hours. Well worth the money! Well done Marco and all the best.
