The bike ride tour was a great experience from start to finish. Meeting point is easy to find and we were met by the lovely Elizebeth who was so friendly and kind from the very start! She talked us through how to use the bike with the assisted pedalling and made sure everyone was together at all times when on the roads. An amazing experience and very worth doing while in Milan!

We were traveling in a small group and got a great overview of Milan. Our guide spoke very good English and we really enjoyed walking with him. Anytime again!

Loved this bike tour. Saw a lot of the city and we had a great guide (I can't remember her name at the moment - maybe Elisabeth?).

Very informative and a really nice tour! Also gave me some restaurant recommendations afterwards! Recommend!

Elisabeth was wonderful. Knowledgeable, considerate and made the bike trip fun.
