My friend and I took a bike tour at the beginning of April. The vineyards were not yet growing but the views were still so beautiful! The tour was great and we had so much fun with our guides. The food at the restaurant was delicious and getting to know other visitors who also took the tour was a bonus. Our guides were very helpful and always put safety first. If you get tired at any point you can hop in the van rather than riding. There is a very intense hill to climb but if you’re not up for trying the climb, the van is an option! The tour is definitely an exercise (not just downhill riding) but it’s not too difficult. I would definitely recommend touring Tuscany this way and experiencing the country side on the bike!

Okay....who doesn't like bussing around on a motorized vehicle thru hill and dale among the olive trees and vineyards of Tuscany? Really...who doesn't. This was a blast. Our whole family had a great time. Filippo, Alessio and Alejandro were all fun, friendly and great hosts of hospitality. We would do this again in a heartbeat. Great time!

My daughter and I did the bike tour from Florence. It was amazing. It was recommended by another guest at our B&B who had done it the day before. We started off at an old Castle and learned a little about making wine and olive oil, followed by a tasting of both. Then did some bike riding and had lunch at a fun family owned traditional Tuscan restaurant which included more wine and was delicious. The staff was fantastic and very safety conscious and the bikes were in great shape. There was a couple of hard hills on the ride, but I'm 53 and work out regularly, so it was not a problem for me. They also have van support for anyone who has issues or concerns. But don't let the hill challenge keep you away from this awesome excursion - it was totally worth it!!!!

What a great day! Spectacular scenery, good food, a nice change from sightseeing. Bike ride was not too difficult; it felt good to get a little exercise. The guides were very safety conscious but also a lot of fun! They worked around the weather to maximize the amount of sunshine while biking and then took us on the castle winery/olive oil tour. Taking this tour took us out of the city and enabled us to see the beautiful Tuscan side countryside up close. It will be a day we will always remember.

Always wanted to Scooter through the Tuscany Hills. So, on a beautiful, sunny, warm November day, I took the Vespa tour. First stop, a winery tour, now I’ve been to many wineries in Tuscany, but this stop was both fun and informative. Then off to pick up our Vespas! Surprising easy to ride, and with a great tour guide, Jason, we set off in the hills. Lunch was in a small town, and included. If you want some fun, do this tour, it was the highlight of my trip.
