I absolutely LOVED this tour! I was in Florence alone and needed something to do I couldn't have made a better choice. I hadn't been on a bike in years, but somehow I managed. The gelato at the end was great. Lots of interesting history shared. The roads are bumpy and there are cars around so it felt like a bit of an adventure for me.

The electric bike was amazing firstly. I didn't even have to pedal much to climb up all the hills. Secondly, the guide will show you a totally different face of Firenze that you would never see by yourself. It is a totally unforgettable memory from an authentic neighborhood in Firenze. Thirdly, the guide is amazing. He spoke perfect English, and also was very knowledgable with a sense of humor. This tour will make the perfect half-day experience for you.

Fabio our tour guide was a very knowledgeable guide delivering the right balance of information and facts about the city and its famous buildings and people. The bikes were well maintained, the groups size was 10 just about right and the weather was great.

The tour is a mixture of easy pace cycling, with stops to view the city and get some background and information and half way there is a Gelato stop for everyone. The guide provides a bottle of water, an earpiece with a receiver so that you can hear him well and cycling through Florence is pretty easy during this tour.

A truly funny and insightful look at history. Seeing how the ruling families, architects , sculptors and painters used their skill to create art and thumb their noses at their enemies. Ricardo was warm and friendly and took time to show us why he loves Florence. The pace was just right and we shared a really fun tour with all of the people that made up the group and had time for pictures and gelato- my kind of day

The bike tour was a great way to see Florence and learn about some of its history in a fun and relaxed way without all of the walking. Our tour guide was very informative and fun to be with.

This was a great tour! I would recommend doing this upon arrival to the city, in the morning so that it can help you become familiar with the city. Make sure you know how to ride a bike if you sign up for this! Like most streets in Europe, they are crowded and narrow. We had someone in our group not know how to ride a bike which was a bit frustrating. I would recommend!

2.5 hour tour where we learned history of Florence and the Medici family. Nice way to get a lay of the land on our first day in Florence. Our tour guide, Dontella, was friendly and very knowledgeable about the city and it's rich history. I was a bit nervous about riding the bike through the city with all the pedestrians and cars, but Dontella guided us through the city without any troubles at all. The tour came with a bottle of water as well as a highly anticipated gelato stop!! I highly recommend giving this a try!
