Debbie and Bill from Switzerland : Bike tours
Our two bike tours with Tuscany Bike Tours were among the highlights of our 5 day trip to Tuscany. Karina was an excellent guide. She showed us routes that we would never have found on our own and gave interesting information about the various sites we passed along the way. Our second tour was with a GPS route finder was also very enjoyable. We strongly recommended any tour with Karina. Don’t hesitate to ask her for advice on any cycling matter. If we’re ever back near Lucca again we will be sure to book another tour. Thanks Karina!!
Salvatore e Imma da Milano: Escursione castello di Nozzano
Bellissima escursione, paesaggi stupendi e suggestivi, la nostra guida Karina semplicemente deliziosa e preparata ci ha coccolato per tutto il percorso. Esperienza sicuramente da ripetere per vedere altri luoghi meravigliosi e vivere un'esperienza a contatto con la natura in splendida compagnia, grazie di cuore Karina
Cynthia: Nottolini Aqueduct and the Olive Road
It was my last full day in Lucca and I wanted to be in the countryside on an e-bike. Karina suggested that we start our tour by riding alongside the 19th century Nottolini Aqueduct. As we rode she told me the history of the aqueduct, which once provided water to Lucca. We then explored some roads which ran past vineyards, olive groves and various villages before returning to Lucca. It was a very pleasant way to spend half a day!
My four tours with Karina and Tuscany Tour Bike were the highlight of my time in Lucca! I look forward to more tours with Tuscany Tour Bike when I return to Lucca. Karina and all of her staff people obviously love what they do and make any experience with Tuscany Tour Bike a memorable one.
Cynthia: Tour of Museo Villa Puccini at Torre del Lago Puccini
My third tour with Tuscany Tour Bike was a day-long trip to the Museo Villa Puccini, which is close to the sea. We rode through the fields and vineyards along country roads and reached the sea around lunch time. After a leisurely lunch at the Marina di Torre Del Lago, we rode the short distance to the house where Puccini composed most of his operas. There was a tour of the house and then we rode home.
I am an older traveller and it has been such a joy to discover the magical powers of the e-bike - which allow me to ride endless kilometres over the course of an entire day. Thank you Tuscany Tour Bike!
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.
