We had a great day together with our guide Francesco. The bikes were quite new and good quality. We enjoyed nice views and great panoramic views across some Chianti sceneries in typical Tuscan style. Visited some small towns on the way to the winery. Lunch was good and also wines were nice. Francesco provided us with a really nice experience and we would do it again for sure.

We had a wonderful experience at the e-bike tour! Our guide Samuele was very friendly and told us a lot about the mountains, wine trees and area. The little villages that we visited were very cute and the wine tasting was also great.. We definitely recommend this tour if you like a extensive and fun day around the Chanti area!

Biking through Chianti rolling hills

This tour was awesome and ended up at a great winery with a fabulous lunch and wine tasting. Brian was a great host and even took us to a gelato place for an extra treat. My husband who is not a bike rider was able to manage the bike even it the post 100 degree heat.

Excellent value for the price and the experience. Thanks very much. My only recommendation would be to inform potential tourists that the tour does not start from San Gemignano but from another place close to Sienna.

Great day!

Excellent guide Davide, great biking and great lunch!
