My daughter and I enjoyed this bike trip and the guide was very knowledgeable. It was the first day of our trip to Milan and it was a great way to get acquainted with the city. The only thing that was a little strange is that the bikes are kept 2 floors down in an underground parking lot. We've done... More

We just took the 3+hour bike tour of Milan with Marta. We prearranged the tour on the net and prepaid as well. Clear instructions were sent to us and we met Marta and walked a few minutes to where the bikes were garaged. The bikes seemed almost new and were comfortable enough for the easy tour. Marta was well versed... More

Easy going, relaxing, lazy, informative tour of Milan. We did this as a family of 4 with a 14 & 12 year old and regretted not doing it as soon as we arrived in Milan. You see so much more on a bike, and get the feel of an area that you will never get on a bus tour. If... More

With only one day to explore the city, I found this tour a wonderful way to cover a lot of ground, but at a relaxed pace. The tour guide safely led a group of sen cyclists on a route of mostly quiet back streets that got us not only to popular tourist sites but many other places of artistic or... More

I recommend this tour as a way to discover a city which is not as well-known as other Italian cities. It's an easy-going and safe introduction with a very well-informed guide.

Thanks a lot for your review! It is really rewarding for us :) We know what you mean, Milan, for everybody the capital of Fashion and Design, is not as known for Art and History as the other main Italian cities. But we and our passionate guides on bicycle are more than happy to give our contribution to unveil its... More

We flew into Milan at noon and booked this tour in the afternoon in order to stay awake. This was a great way to see the highlights of Milan. Bicycling was very easy and slightly (we were pretty slow!) faster than walking. Our guide was informative. Saw parts of the city I would return to later. Gave great advice.

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience! Thanks also for your patience of going around in a very hot day! Luckily as you said, Milan is very flat, not-too-big and we make a lot of stops along the way, so even if it is a hot summer day, you can enjoy visiting it by bicycle! All our best and greetings...

Loved this tour! I traveled with my 18 year old son and best friend. Enjoyed all the hidden gems that Milan has to offer. Just wished we had been able to explore more of the precious side streets and see "real life". Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. Appreciated the small group size, too. Would readily take this tour again!

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience! We know exactly what you mean! Who knows and love Milan often says that most of Milan’s beauty is not visible at a first glance!
