    Our guide (Francesca) and your was safe, delightful and interesting.

    We much enjoyed the whole experience. The bikes and back streets were safe and easy to ride. Our guide was knowledgeable, energetic and interesting. We were two couples meeting only for this - one young and us, quite older. But it worked beautifully - not too taxing and covered incredible range of sites. Highly recommended.

    It was a nice way to learn a little about the area.

    We had a lovely morning cycling about, it was very easy cycling, we didn't cover much distance, it nice to learn a bit about the buildings etc. Had a few stops to try small things to eat, nice lady tour guide, felt very comfortable with her and the small group we were with.

    Very good way to discover Florence

    Enthousiast and very knowledgeable gide Veronica. She knows a lot and if you ask questions, she tells more and more. I beleive that on the bike we could see more than if we would do by feet and we're not tired at all despite the temperature +35C . We had a bike tour through Florence and some of the people had "bike and food", so we were lucky to get some food as well. As extra by our tour, it was exelent but if I had booked "bike and food" I would have found it quite poor qua food experience.
