This was the best idea I have had in a long time. Our guide Francesco was very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. We did the bike tour on our first day and it helped us learn about the incredible history or Turin and set up our places to go over the next few days. So awesome!! We have another leg in our trip to a different city and I am looking for bike tours there now too. You are cycling in a city and there are cobblestone and cars and street car / tram track to contend with but Francesco did his best to take bike lanes and other safer routes whenever possible.

Wonderful tour. Excellent overview of the city including interesting historical background. Brand new Ebikes!

A guide that knows the palace inside out and loves the job. Efficient and communicates very well.

If you visit a palace with a guide the history is coming to life. Good story.

Nice and competent guide. Interesting and insightful.
