What people are saying about IBT



David Hearth and Tom Birdsall, San Francisco, CA, USA

Thanks again for an excellent adventure--cycling we'll never forget, and we want to go again. We know there are other passes in the Dolomites and many routes in Tuscany we have yet to see.

My husband, Jim LOVES to ride. I couldn't imagine a vacation to Italy without Jim exploring some of the countryside on his favorite mode of transport - BIKE! I was a little concerned about which would be the right choice since I am not the avid rider that he is...but Marco, you were the perfect, accommodating host and guide! Unlike big, corporate run tours, your personal touch and attentiveness to our wishes made for a perfectly enjoyable experience through Chianti country....so much so that we added the second day trip to Sienna the next day....turns out, that was even better than the first day! We will remember the laughter and unique sites of Italy for a very long time. Thank you for your hospitality and for a 'well oiled' trip...

Hi Marco,

This is Dina from US - my husband and I did the Chianti 2 tour with you back at the end of September.

I just wanted to say how great that ride was and having been in the States for a couple of weeks now, we keep remembering our trip and your tour was definitely a highlight of it. We went to Siena next day with a driver and that tour paled in comparison.

Thank you for the pleasant day, a beautiful ride and great company.

Bonjourno Marco & Jodie and Catherine & Lizzy!,

I hope you are all doing well. We made it back to Illinois safe and tired. :) I am now trying to go through my 1500 photos!

First of all, Marco and Jodie, I want to thank you again for the wonderful trip. It was the best part of our vacation!

I plan to send you some more photos from our bike tour as I go through them.

Catherine & Lizzy, could you send me at least the photo of us all biking up the hill? The one Marco took. Also if you have another photo of you gals, I'd like it. I don't have many of you!

Thank you so much! It was such a pleasure to meet you all! It was a day we'll never forget. ;)

Cheers, Jaime

Marco and Jodie,

Here are some pics from our bike ride through Tuscany. Despite the weather, we had a great time and built great memories. You did a great job taking care of my family and showing us a wonderful time.

Best Regards,


Nikki and Steve Drake, Chicago IL, USA


My husband Steve and I finished our “Your Tuscan Sun” tour a few weeks ago as our Honeymoon trip. We had an absolutely AMAZING time. I couldn’t have imagined the trip being any more perfect. Marco was a phenomenal guide, the biking tours were exactly the right level for us, the accommodations started out great and just got better and better, and we appreciated having everything put together and planned so all we had to do was enjoy ourselves along the trip. We spent the whole week after the tour in Northern Italy relaxing by lake Como, talking about how much fun we had on the bike trip. Now that we’re home in Chicago, we’re already thinking about when we can plan our next biking vacation, and which of the We Bike Tuscany tours we want to do next.

I know that you and Marco are in frequent communication so if you would, please do pass along our special thanks to him for making the experience such a great one. We also really appreciate the calendar he gave us as a wedding gift. We’ll enjoy looking at all of those pictures next year and will think of the incredible week we spent together in Tuscany every day.

Take care,

Nikki & Steve Drake

We're back in the US after our wonderful vacation. Thank you so much for the great day last Friday. We enjoyed it very much. Even though the weather did not fully cooperate you did a great job making it a very good and interesting day.

I hope to be able to make a similar trip again in the future and I'll certainly get back to you when I start pulling my plans together.

It was great to meet and spend some time with a fellow Pennsylvanian. Thanks again for a wonderful day in a beautiful place.

Hi Marco !

Thanks again for the wonderful tour yesterday, and for dropping us off in Fiesole.

Here are the pics, can't wait to see them on your website. I'll recommend your tour when I can to future Tuscany travellers.

Let's keep in touch !

Hi Marco,

Hope you've recovered from the Lubben summer camp. Thank you for designing an awesome trip for our gang. Everything worked out incredibly smoothly and it was an amazing time for all of us. You did an excellent job taking care of the varied biking levels of our crowd. The combination of the rides and activities was just right too. And the hotels and restaurants were perfect. The rest of our trip worked out great also.

If you and Marco ever catch a rainbow photo I'll hope you'll remember to send it me!

Regards, Babette Lubben

Kate and I had such a wonderful time! Thank you for all of your work, recommendations, and attention to every detail.

It truly was a trip of a lifetime. Your "office" of the Tuscan hills is the best "office" we've seen.

Here's the picture of us buying our dishes. We will think of you and Italy every time we use them.
