This tour was great. Our guide, Marcello, was fun, friendly and engaging. He knew a lot about all the spots we visited. We were a party of 3. Bikes were in good condition. We were grouped with a nice couple that had 2 children; their bikes had child seats on the back. The pace was very relaxed. Highly recommend!

An awesome bike tour experience. We had one day in Lecce and made the most out of it only from this awesome bike tour. Our guide was Antonio. So friendly and knowledgeable of the area. He told us all the great stories behind all important buildings and squares. We learned so much and toured the whole central Lecce in the 2 hours we had. We would do it all over again. We had such a great time!

We booked the Lecce street food tour, guided by Martina.

We enjoyed the combination of cycling, receiving information about Lecce and the stops with wine and food. A beautiful town.

Thanks Martina !

After two hours we do not have gained any knowledge about the city; what a waste of time.

If you have guide Leo, ask your money back and search for a different tour(guide).

Dear Willem, we are very sorry for what you wrote. Leo is a certified guide, and very well trained one, working in Lecce for 5 years, and he is one cofounder of Velo Service: we really can't believe what you wrote. Maybe Leo prepared a different kind of tour, a more goliardic one. We're sorry, and we would be happy to offer you a free tour, with another guide. Really looking forward to see you again, have a nice day!

I booked the tour through viator but the tour operator is Vello services located in Lecce. The preTrip commination was satisfactory and very accommodating to our needs.
The tour with Miriam was the highlight. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her city with many insights. We saw few baroque monuments but enough to get the feel for its design elements, history on how it came about in Lecce. She also showed us a city park and important cemetery outside of the Centro storico to highlight the real local people's life.
We talked about the impact from the tourist industry on the locals. Miriam Converses well in English and is a smart genuine Italian youth.

We had an awesome tour with Berta, who was just so lovely! There was only myself and my husband on the tour and we got to see all the top attractions in the city. The bicycles were in good/reasonable condition and Berta was able to tell us lots of random facts about this little city. We loved it!

I found the Velo service bike and food tasting tour on tripadvisor and booked it in
advance based on the excellent reviews. It really was the perfect way to start our holiday!

Miriam was our guide for the day and it was just myself and husband on the tour. Miriam was really knowledgable and gave us a great insight into Lecce and many of its historic landmarks. It was our first day in Lecce and we found the tour helped us gain an understanding of the geography of the area and what sites we may want to go back and spend more time at later in the week. The bike tour lasted about 3 hours and was really fun! We tasted some local olive oil, Chocolate, wine and olives in a lovely little shop.

I would certainly recommend this tour. The staff, especially Miriam were so helpful and friendly it’s a great way to see the city!
