30 Jun Wine tasting with the “magic” bike
Alissa and Jason decided to go on the Bike around Tuscany wine tasting combined with a bike ride. When we met in front of the bike store they followed my advice and hopped on two “magic” bikes.
Alissa fell in love with it right away and wanted all her pictures sitting ON the bike!
Here’s their story about our Tuscany bike tour:
“My husband and I booked a half-day tour with Luca and it was truly the ride of a lifetime. We are avid bikers, having taken multi-day trips through Oregon, commuting to work on bikes and regularly doing bike tours in the cities we visit, and this trip with Luca truly topped them all. We spent 2.5 hours on the bikes, traversing some of the most beautiful countryside I have ever seen. The route was serene, local and clearly the work of someone who is a passionate cyclist himself who knows the back roads that couldn’t be found easily by a tourist.
As passionate as Luca is, don’t let that worry you regarding required skill level: he is able to customize the ride on the spot for beginner, intermediate or advanced riders. We loved that Luca offered e-bikes…they were a real bonus in the Tuscan hillside and I truly felt like a kid again riding them up and down the hills at a pace I could never achieve with a traditional bike! After the ride, Luca took us for a private wine tasting complete with 6 wines, homemade bruschetta, two types of cheeses, bread, prosciutto and salami. It was INCREDIBLE. The panoramic views were amazing, the wine delicious and affordable (we brought some home) and the company superb, as Luca spent the two hours with us making great conversation and educating us about Italian culture. I felt like we spent the day with a great friend, not someone we had met a few hours before. Luca’s tour was the highlight of our 10 day trip in Italy, including destinations to Venice, Cinque Terre and Merano. I would encourage anyone looking to explore Tuscany to email Luca and learn about the options he has available. He will customize the tour in a way that works for you. Thank you, Luca!”
