You'll pedal quiet back roads around Florence, Chianti, Siena, Val d'Orcia and elsewhere. Personalized service with pick up and drop off at or near your hotel. All fitness/skill levels and fully van-supported. Several rides to choose from for varied interests, including wine and olive oil tasting, gelato tasting, historic castles and off-the-beaten path medieval villages. First-rate equipment (and electric bikes too!). Ask about our new cooking class ride for foodies! Florentine Marco Vignoli, a former bicycle racer, founded I Bike Tuscany. His wish is to share with you his passion for amazing scenery, adventure, great food and wine and, of course, biking. It's his belief there is no better or more exciting way to experience the singularly beautiful region of his homeland than from the seat of a "bicicletta," and so has worked hard to create some very special and unique itineraries that we're sure will have you believing the same. We look forward to your joining us for a day (or trip) you'll keep in your heart, take home with you and never forget. « less

This was a day we will remember forever! Booking through the company was easy and efficient. They confirmed with us the week of the trip. We planned a bike tour in the Chianti region where we started in Gaole and biked to a beautiful castle where we toured the castle (gorgeous!), had an amazing lunch (not included in the tour,... More

Our great experience started before our trip with the responsiveness and answering of our questions, so we knew how to pack and prepare. We had Marco for two trips and couldn't have been more satisfied with our experience. First day was the "Gelato Tour", which began by Marco picking us up in Florence and driving to Castellina. Here we enjoyed... More

Marco was very helpful. It was just the two of us from Grassina on a circuitous route to Strada in Chianti. The climb getting there was a challenge, but Marco helped me get there. The return was easy enough. This is the most scenic ride I have ever been on in addition to being challenging. All the reviews you read... More

My husband and I biked through Tuscany on the wine tour and had a blast. Elizabeth was a wonderful guide and very knowledgable about the area. The wine was amazing and we ended up with 5 bottles at the end of the tour :) The tour was a wonderful way to see the countryside and see smaller towns in Italy.... More

We booked two rides with Marco, both starting in the Gaiole region of Tuscany. The three of us are not experienced bikers, though we have spent some time in the saddle. Marco selected two beautiful 20-mile (32 km) routes for us. The first day, it was about 25% uphill and 75% downhill (and the hills weren't very steep). We did... More

We had the pleasure of being guided by Marco and Jodi on a hike to Cinque Terra and on a Gelato bike tour through the Chianti region. Both activities are very family friendly. We would highly recommend Marco and Jodi of I Bike Tuscany to everyone, individuals, couples and families. They are kind, courteous, pleasant, knowledgeable, timely, caring and fund... More

My husband and i biked outside Florence with our guide in March 2014. The ride was tailored to our activity level and our interests. As we passed olive trees and vineyards, we stopped to relish the view. Our guide was happy to tell us about the seasonal olive and grape harvest. For lunch and a short rest, we stopped at... More

My wife and I took a bike tour trough tuscany with Elizabeth on may, 2014. We crossed the roads from Gaiole in Chianti to Castel of Brolio, at Castelnuovo, as described in the following link: http://www.ibiketuscany.com/tours/view/chianti-tour-02. Elizabeth made we feel very safe, the bikes (two kybrid cannondales) were excellent. We really recommend.
