This experience was superb. We were lucky because our trip was private without any other tourist (summer daytime). Nevertheless Gabriel our tour guide and owner of the company was fantastic, he is so friendly, open-minded, high-skilled and funny person. The 4-hour flexible tour passed quickly, you can went through the steep hills easily with the professional and powerful electric bikes, not tiring at all. Going around Florence and surroundings is a perfect way to getting touch with the real Toscany feeling of life. At the end of the trip Gabriel introduced us to his part of family, his newborn baby (so cute!). We felt ourselves as the part of Gabriel's family. And the ice cream was as delicious as promised :) When you visit Florence this trip is a must have program. Don't hesitate, book now :)
