E-bike newbies in Florence
JOSHUA_B
, Dec 2021
Due to some mobility fatigue issues with one of our party we were concerned how well or how long she could last biking up and down the hills of Florence. We were able to work out a solid strategy and path with our guide to test biking abilities and fatigue. Turns out it was not needed the power provided by the e-bikes was more than enough to tackle even the steepest hill up to the fortress. For that one even our athletic son, used the lowest power of the e-bike to help out. The top power helped even the struggling tackle that hill. Despite riding through the middle of Florence our guide always made us feel confident and comfortable. By the end of the day we had started shopping for our own e-bikes. Our guide was also extremely knowledgeable about Florence and the surrounding countryside. We took in beautiful views of the valleys and the city. Highly encourage working with these guys.

I would say this was one of the highlights of our whole holiday. Gabriel brought us to see some stunning parts of the countryside and his local knowledge, enthusiasm and clear love for the area was very obvious and made us feel we were getting an even better experience. Big thank you Gabriel, we had a great time listening to your stories and sense of humour! The Gelato at the end was amazing and it became our local Gelato for the rest of our holiday and thank you for some lovely restaurant recommendations too, you were not wrong!

We had a wonderful time on our tour with Gabriel. He was gracious helping me find the right bike to properly fit my height and was patient when the chain broke on my husband's bike! We rode through a beautiful community and he shared a lot of wonderful information about the area. Definitely a wonderful time. I highly recommend!

We had a wonderful family biking trip just outside of Florence with our family. We visited a beautiful farm and stopped on the way back to see the city from up high. Our tour guide was great and the eBikes made it so easy.

Whenever I travel I like to do a bike tour to cover a lot of ground & stay active. If you have an afternoon spare this tour is a relaxing & lovely way to explore Florence! This is not a challenging or strenuous tour it is very relaxing. Our guide was so lovely & informative.

Even though our tour was shortened to 2 hours from 4 hours which was disappointing and even though we had another 'glitch', our guide Alessia was fantastic in how she handled it and it actually made the tour more memorable! She made sure we had a great tour which we did. The ebikes are all that is needed to get you to the outskirts of Florence and we absolutely loved the views plus the stops for pictures and local info. We definitely recommend this tour! Thank you Alessia! Hope to take the longer tour with you the next time :) Mike and Rosa

The most wonderful part of our holiday. Ellise was a great guide our first time on electric bikes and we are now hooked. The 1/2 day tour was more than we expected even a hail storm at the end of our tour tour didn't dampen our day. Highly recommend it if you want to see the city from the hills
