“A lot of fun in the Tuscan country side”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Jason and Lorenzo, our guides, were excellent. Both are passionate about cycling and the Tuscan region. The castle is a fantastic location. Lunch was in a nice restaurant in a little town.

We underestimated the cycling effort required. Be prepared for a couple of steep inclines. There is no pressure and the pace of the group is based on the fitness and capability of riders.

Overall a great day.

“Highlight of our time in Florence!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We had a great time on this tour, and felt that it was excellent value for money. The guides were great and the tour itself was lovely too. Some of the journey is a bit hard going if you haven't cycled in a while and aren't that fit, but this can't be faulted because it is clearly advertised and they have a van driving with the group the whole time in case anyone gets tired.

The wine and olives oil tour and tasting was fascinating and you get a chance to buy the produce once the tasting is done. There are 100ml bottles of extra virgin olive oil which make great souvenirs.

Lunch that is provided is pretty good, but word of caution: don't eat too much or else the next leg of the cycle will be pretty taxing! :)

All in all a great day, and a perfect way to see the Tuscan country-side if you are travelling the area without a car. The guides are also more than happy to take pictures of everybody, so as a couple, that was nice for us.

Thank you Tuscany Bike Tours! We have your stickers put up and are showing off our water bottles in work :)

We had such a great time on this tour. The staff is very entertaining and passionate about Florence and Tuscany. The wine tour was interesting, the wine was delicious and we met a bunch of great people. The scenery on the bike route is incredible.

“Great bike tour! The highlight of our trip!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

My husband and I went on the bike tour during a 1 month trip through Europe. It was the by far the best part of our entire vacation! The guides were all very friendly and informative. The bikes were in great condition and the staff took time to adjust everyone's bike to suit them. The views from the castle and along the bike ride were absolutely amazing! There were nice periodic breaks to stop and take pictures or just grab some water. (You get a nice reusable water bottle before the tour starts) Lunch was quite filling and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a nice bike ride through the countryside and a very enjoyable day in Tuscany!
