My wife and I started our trip to Italy specifically with this tour and it did not disappoint! We had Jacopo who was excellent and really made the experience authentic and enjoyable.

We did the full day Classic tour and while easy enough, it is a great workout, so don't come in expecting flat roads all day - it's Tuscany! There are enough stops along the way to take breaks (read water, pastries, gelato and food at the winery) and enough to be seen and heard from your guide to really get a good feel of the region and it's history.

The winery itself is lovely and really felt off the beaten path. I came into this thinking it would be a tour of a winery that ushers tourists through, and was completely floored to have lunch at the country home of the owners with fantastic wine and olive oil.

Take this tour! You won't regret it.

About a month ago I was visiting Florence with my wife as part of our vacations in Italy. We loved the city from the first day and since we have come from Rome we were looking to avoid the classic tourist attractions and routes. Since we didn't have too much time we selected the half day tour in the afternoon from Florence to the outskirts. We were so happy about the decision!!
It was raining during the morning but the afternoon was awesome. We were greet by our tour guide Jill in front of the I Bike Italy offices. She went about to explain, the logistics, safety rules and the route. Then we selected the bikes and off to a small villa in the outskirts of the city.
The ride at the beginning was a bit tough for my wife that doesn't ride a bike regularly; but Jill was very patience and repeated to us that it was ok to to stop whenever we feel. We did that several time when going uphill.
After that that first part the ride is rather easy and very enjoyable. We stop in different sites in our route to a small wine villa and it was simply awesome. You can get off the bike whenever you wanted as long that it was safe. Jill did a very good job explaining to us the main points, Florence culture among other things.
We had a very good time in the wine villa, sipped some house wine, appetizers, enjoyed the amazing view and talk about almost everything.
Then we head back into the city stopping by at Plaza Michelangelo in order to enjoy the view until sunset. Then we continue our way to the city while making stops to enjoy the view, see the main attractions and even we got recommendations from Jill of where to eat, have a gelato etc.
At the end we were so happy about choosing I Bike Italy as part of our stay at Florence it was the highlight of our visit. Being able to pass by the crowd thru the city it bike it just priceless.

Not sure if all of the tour guides are good but ours, Jacopo Bardi, was exceptional. I have been in Italy 2 weeks and learned more in one day from him than the rest of the trip. Learned more about the authentic culture in Italy! Thank you Jacopo!

Jill was our tour guide and we were fortunate enough to be the only 4 people on our tour. Jill went out of her way to stop on our way and allow us to get coffee and a pastry before beginning the bike tour. She let us go at our own pace and answered so many questions that we had about the region. Lunch was delicious and the winery tour was a living history experience. So great to see how they still use buildings built in the 900s. Since it was just the 4 of us Jill asked if we wanted to stop for giletto before ending our trip. She took so much time and never made us feel rushed or pressured. She was so knowledgable about the region and wineries as well. Can't recommend this enough. Take the tour early on in your visit to give you a greater knowledge and appreciation of the region during your stay.

Very good bike tour through the Tuscan region! The only thing I wished for was a bit more biking. We made quite a few stops but it was because of the group we had. Amazing lunch at a private villa. Tour guide was awesome and very informative! Thank you!
