Very nice and interesting sightseeing tour by bike. I can only recommend it. Very personable, humorous tour guide. You could explore many more extensive places. It is a shame, however, that the tour was only conducted in Italian and English.

Fantastic introduction to beautiful city of Verona. Calmly cycling and many stops ensure that the hours flew by. Well-thought-out sequence so that all highlights can be viewed quietly. Isabella is an enthusiastic guide. Compliments.

All the hot spots in 3 hours with a local guide. Can recommend it! Some car drivers greets the group with a welcoming honk and hand gesture but this is just it is in Italian cities.

We were super satisfied with our city tour. Very competent and a huge amount of specialist knowledge. Finally, there were a few good tips. Gladly again. Many thanks to Manuela.
