Cynthia: Tour of Lago di Massaciuccoli
The tour of Lago di Massaciuccoli was my second tour with Tuscany Tour Bike. Karina and I spent the entire day in the countryside on our e-bikes. As we passed by the lovely hilltown of Nozzano Castello Karina told me about its history. Later we stopped to explore another hilltown. We had lunch in the village of Massaciuccoli, which is the site of several Roman ruins. Afterwards we rode alongside Lake Massaciuccoli and through fields of sunflowers back to Lucca. All along the way Karina took photos and videos which she later edited and sent to me at home. It is a special gift to have.
I highly recommend the tours of Tuscany Tour Bike.
Cynthia: Tour of Lucca Hills
I've been to Tuscany quite a number of times but had never felt really connected to the land. In June of 2019 I spent two weeks in Lucca and one day I decided to hire a bike from Tuscany Tour Bike to ride around the city wall. After my ride I met Karina in her shop and we made arrangements to do a half-day tour of the hills near Lucca. It was my first time on an e-bike and Karina really helped me to figure out how to use it. She's a very experienced guide and shared lots of stories about the areas where we rode. Riding the bike through the beautiful fields and into the hills allowed me to develop a real sense of the Italian countryside.
Karina was such a knowledgeable guide and such fun to be with that I ended up doing three more tours with her. I highly recommend Tuscany Tour Bike.
Nis Mark and Tania Serzedelo: Family from Copenhagen
It was our first time in Tuscany and Lucca and we accidentally popped into Karina’s bike shop. After a while we decided to go on a Four hour trip to Colline Lucchesi, the next Day. It was such a pleasent dayride through the Tuscany landscape, so many beautiful spots! Our daughter of 14 was at first apprehensive about the ride but just loved it, and was suprised how easy it was to ride on a e- Bicycle. Our son of 16, a Tour de France afficionado, just wanted to come back the next Day and do another ride! Karina is a very pleasent and funny guide with a lot of experience. We Highly recommend this experience to other families, friend etc....don’ t miss this unique opportunity!
Family from South Africa : Tour Tuscany
Our travels took us to Tuscany this year and to the beautiful town of Lucca where we found Karina’s bike shop. We rented her bikes for an hour and were very sad to hand them back. We unanimously decided to change our plans to accommodate a day riding through the Tuscan countryside. As difference in skill and ability is often a problem, the E-bikes provided the perfect Solution. We thoroughly enjoyed the exceptional service from our friendly tour guide Karina. We experienced riding between the sunflowers and olive orchards, up mountains and to the castle, through forests and alongside rivers. I can highly recommend the experience. The highlight of our trip! Carmen, Michaela and Abby
Guest: Two Couples from Australia
We walked into Katina’s Tuscany Tour Bike store looking to hire bikes for a day and walked out having booked a full day tour out to Lago de Massaciuccoli. We arrived at the store on the morning of the ride and got fitted to our ebikes. The bikes were new and had a pouch on the handle bars for your phone/camera and a pinyon bag on the back for water, bags, coats etc. The ride was mainly on cycle paths and back roads and mostly flat with a few hills thrown in. The countryside was picturesque with so many photo stops. Katina is an excellent guide either stopping or riding beside us telling us about the area we were travelling through. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about her job, very easy to get along with and answered all our questions which were many. An excellent tour and one of our major highlights of our 6-week holiday. We only wish we had longer in Lucca to do one of her travel tours. Highly recommend her tours.
S. Family from Canada : Great family activity
This s great activity for a family even with kids. I have a 9 year old and a 12 year old and they both enjoyed. THe e-bikes make it easy to do any kind of terrain and basic biking skill level is all that is required.
We rode around the Lucca wall and saw an ancient aqueduct, which is a very unique experience if you live in North America.
Katina even takes pictures and videos for free.
Croquet family: E bike tour in lucca hills
we are a Belgian family of 5 and we were looking for an active day out to finish our holiday week in Lucca. By accident we ended up in Karina’s bike store. The next day she took us on an e-bike tour around the Lucca hills. Nothing was too much for her... from taking pictures and videos, telling us stories about Lucca and herself. She was also very patient with ‘la mama’... who needed some adaptation time to the e-bike... real value for money, a real recommendation. And an afternoon the kids will talk about for a long time. Many thanks Karina for the afternoon and for sure we go for another tour when we are in the neighbourhood.
Véronique et Patrick: Ballade à vélo fantastique
Nous venons de Bruxelles, Belgique. Première fois à Lucca. Carina nous a fait découvrir des endroits merveilleux. Sa gentillesse et sa connaissance nous ont enchantés. Je recommande à tous cette escapade dans la campagne toscane !
Ant Nolan: E-Bike Lucca to Pisa
Karina guided a big group of us with a mixed range of cycling abilities on a very enjoyable bike riding day out. Karina was very helpful with the planning and everything ran smoothly on the day. Thoroughly recommend the experience, the e-bikes were ideal for balancing out each of the riders & the kids loved them.
Lívia Biasotto: tuscany bike tour experience
I'm from Porto Alegre - RS, southern Brazil. The bicycle is part of my daily life, I usually ride a bike to go work and move around the city during the week. At weekends, I change my urban bike for another hybrid bike to realize tours and small trips. I was in Italy for a month and I admit that when I arrived in Tuscany, I looking for a possibility of realizing one dream: to know the hills, vineyards, villages and landscapes from the perspective of the bicycle. I traveled alone, by train, and did many walks. Walking through Lucca, I try the bike stores to get information about bicycle rentals and tours. I knew that without a group it would be harder to fit this into my script. Then, I was very happy when Karina promptly answered me in Spanish, which facilitated our communication because I still do not speak Italian. We combined two tours around Lucca, and she as a guide made sure to accompany me even if we did not have a group. It was a special Saturday and Sunday, with different tours in which I first tried an e-bike, a model that has not yet arrived in Brazil. As an experienced rider, I can say that I felt free to trigger the feature that drives the pedaling only when I found it necessary, enjoying a quiet ride. They are very comfortable and safe bikes that make it easier on longer climbs. I hope to soon return and plan longer trips in the company of the Tuscany Bike Tour team.
