    Great bikes!

    The bikes were in great condition although I will say that not everyone's bell worked. We (a party of 5) had no trouble getting the right size bikes for a comfortable ride. Each had a basket and a lock. It was a lot of fun cycling the walls. It was very crowded but worth it! Three hours went by very quickly.

    The guy who gave us the bikes was abrupt and impatient and seemed in a hurry to return to his laptop. A little customer service would not have gone astray. However, the bikes were good and self guided tour was really lovely- Lucca is well worth a visit and the bike option a must.
