What people are saying about San Gimignano

Magnifique journée en vélo électrique dans la région du Chianti. Des souvenirs innobliables: paysages à couper le souffle et repas avec dégustation de vin commentée dans un vignoble. Nous étions deux couples avec le guide alors pouvions allez à notre rythme. Une suggestion pour une prochaine fois: que les batteries des vélos soient rechargées durant le repas car la mienne était épuisée à la fin du parcours.

The tour was a lot of fun. It started in Badesse in a very well organized way. Tuscany is no problem with an e-bike. Our guide took us through several towns and the wine tasting was great. A beautiful, family-run winery. The other participants were also very nice and it was an all-round successful day.

Guide Matilda very friendly and pleasant, took us to beautiful places, all amazing! Unforgettable tour.

We had a very nice day, Lorenzo our guide was very interesting and very kind.

Riding Vespas around the hills of Tuscany was amazing and super fun!
