Our tour was excellent. The bikes were really easy to use (I am not a cyclist and had never used an e bike before) and we were able to see the area so much better than we would have in a car. Our guide, Pieter was great and the tour of the cheese far was a lot of fun. Highly recommend this for a fun half day, and learn about lemon farming and limoncello production as well as cheese making in the region.

Francesca was our guide, historian, and all-around great host for getting to see Sorrento and learn far more about the city than expected. A fantastic experience, seeing sites I'd have never seen on my own with a stop in a pasticceria for tastings of biscotti, cioccolato, and limoncello.

My sisters and I had a lovely evening - it is social as well as interesting, and the food and wine were really good.

The guide Francesca was very knowledgeable. She also injected some humour into the tour

Carla did a great job introducing us to the many sides of Sorrento!
