    Karina is super guide and lots of fun to be with. We toured for 4 hours over hill and dale and stopped for delicious gelato. Highly recommended. Oh and the e-bikes were great.

    My husband and I stumbled across the Tuscany Bike Shop during our stay in Lucca. We were immediately drawn in by the genuine friendliness of Karina and Eva. These ladies are passionate about Lucca and what it has to offer in the surrounding countryside. We booked a guided bike tour with Karina and she took us to some of the most breathtaking hilltop locations around. We were absolutely overwhelmed with the beauty of the area she showed us. Karina always watched our back for safety during the tour and also chose the best locations to take snapshots and some video recording for us to keep. The e-bikes made the journey a breeze. We also returned a week later, to hire bikes again, just to do a few laps of Lucca’s wall and zigzag throughout the streets. We absolutely loved it. We thoroughly recommend Tuscany Bike Shop for a piece of adventure, and a day you’ll never forget.

    HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP

    January 10, 2024

    Tuscany Tour Bike was amazing!! Karina was so fun to be with. Weather interfered with our original plan, but she made a custom adventure for us the following day. You can trust her to make sure you have a wonderful time experiencing the beauty and pace of Lucca. She stopped periodically and gave some history. She also sent us pictures and videos that she took and followed up to make sure we got them. Our experience was so much more than I expected and worth every penny. Don’t hesitate to book a tour!

    Togehter with my mom I stayed in Lucca in last May. We had an absolute great time in Tuscany. Our best time was for sure the bike tour we made with bikes rented from Tuscany Tour Bike. The lady of the store was super kind and helpful, and she gave us the best recommendations we will never forget! It were a few beutiful routes to take by bike which led to a few very lovely local trattoria with the most delicious food. Next time when we visit the area will will come by another time! thank you kind for your kindness and the great service! Ciao from Hollanda!

    We did the wine tour with Karina.  Wow!  What an experience. The cycle ride along the river and up the hill was lovely. The small family run winery was so charming. Bonus that we also got to see the aqueducts.  Best of all though was Karina. Super fun and so nice. It was like riding a bike with a new good friend. We felt well looked after all the way, even those of us who thought it was a bit scary with all the traffic out of Lucca 😉 We loved your concept, Karina, and will certainly recommend you to everyone we meet who is planning to go to beautiful Lucca. Now we can’t wait to see the photos and videos you took along the way. Greetings from Monica and the girls 🙂

    We are experienced at Active Travel vacations and can easily say that Karina, in her small operation, can compete with the best from Backroads, B&R and A&K. Her day trips are wonderful. Coming off a 6 day Backroads hiking and culinary trip, we decided to spend 4 nights in the beautiful walled city of Lucca. We booked 2 of Karina’s all-day tours – the Wine Tasting Tour and the Beaches Tour. The tours were as advertised including marvelous mid-September sunshine and low humidity (a welcome relief from Florida summer). Both tours took us through the Tuscany countryside on either bike paths or minimally travelled roads. The electric bikes were comfortable, in excellent condition and easy to use. The Wine trip lead us to a 5th generation farm/winery where we got a tour of the vineyard and the wine-making process as well as a wine tasting and traditional Tuscan lunch. That day we also made a quick stop to see one of the beautiful villas built in Napoleonic times. On the Beach day, we saw a Castle on the way to the beach that was used as a warning post during the times when Pisa and Lucca were warring republics. The Beach we went to was beautiful and not overrun with touristas. Don’t forget to sample a shakerato (shaken iced coffee) if you take these tours. Upon our last return to Lucca, she even showed us the secret passageways under the Lucca walls. Within hours of completing the tours, we received personalized videos of each from the photos/videos that Karina took during the tour. What a nice bonus! We can, without any hesitation, recommend Karina’s tours. In fact, we did not say goodbye but rather arrivederci and were discussing with her a multi-day tour to Siena, Livorno, Pisa and the mountains for our next visit! Karina, you are la gioia!

    Karina roadtrip

    July 29, 2023

    On a whim, we decided to do some sightseeing in Lucca for our last hoursof our Italie trip. By chance we met Karina who enthusiastically told us about the possibilities of a bike tour. We decided to be surprised. This resulted in a beautiful trip through a beautiful landscape with a pleasant and very knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed it a lot! It was maybe the most impressive few hour of our Italian stay.

    Thank you Karina!

    Great time in the hills of Lucca!

    July 4, 2023

    We had a lovely time riding the hills of Lucca with Karina! Even though it was July, it was not too hot as you are riding in many places with a breeze. Karina speaks excellent English if that is important for you.  I am not a very good cyclist, and my husband is an excellent cyclist.  However, we both enjoyed this easy e-bike tour with beautiful scenery.  At the end, Karina creates a video of your ride which is so kind and wonderful!  We highly recommend a tour with Karina. She has many to choose from, and all are completely private and reasonably priced.  Talk to Karina if you have any doubts.  She can meet any size and level of a group’s needs perfectly!
