Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 8,385 reviews

Luigi was very informative, and patient with us. He was very friendly as well. My only recommendation is that they should give us and the operators a microphone and headphone so that we have the ability to listen to the tour guide even if we are not next to him. The pasta making was excellent and a great way to end the tour.

To be mentioned positively - the upper deck is currently closed & it is heated (pleasant with the currently low temperatures). Windows were very clean so that we could see everything well.

Michele was very nice and knowledgeable. The bikes were street bikes (thin tires). We got to bike around town, see all the main locations and take good photos! Highly recommend!

As in other European metropolises, a very meaningful and informative way to get to know a city and to quickly get an overview

Super knowledgeable friendly guide a great experience highly recommend this tour you won't be disappointed
