What people are saying about Fiesole

Our guide, Lorenzo, was fantastic!! 2 members of our group needed to return to the bike shop after beginning the tour. Lorenzo escorted them back, and made sure they had everything they needed before returning to my husband and I. We had the best morning, gliding through the hills above Florence. We stopped at numerous places where Lorenzo explained the history of the area. He was extremely informative and we learned so much about the region. We have travelled to Italy many times and can surely say that Lorenzo was one of the best guides we have ever had!! Gabriel, at the bike shop, made sure we were completely comfortable before leaving. We felt very confident setting out for the morning. Don’t hesitate to book this tour, even if you are a novice cyclist!! We certainly will be booking again when we return to Florence!!

This has been the highlight of our visit to Florence. I didn’t want the ride to end! Gabriel is so kind, funny, and informative, and the bikes are excellent. The route is beautiful. We went to a rural are that we would not normally get to see. We can’t recommend this excursion enough.

Our guide Leo was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and helpful! The lunch was the best I have had in Italy so far! I highly recommend and would do again! The bikes were good.

We had a a wonderful few hours. It was great to see areas outside the city and Gabriel our guide was very knowledgeable and humorous.
