WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT IBT
Joy, Peter and Liz Catolico, Oakland, CA and Los Angeles, CA, USA
Grazie mille for a wonderful biking experience in your 'hood! I am now in the market for a hybrid so I can start training for our next ride with you (hopefully Chianti).
Again, if you are ever here in the Bay Area, don't hesitate to give me and Pete a call, we'd love to take you out for dinner and drinks!!! I'm sure Liz will do the same when you are in Los Angeles :-)
OUR HEARTS HAVE SHRUNKEN ALREADY SINCE WE LEFT FLORENCE!

Marco & Elizabeth,
From the very first email to the end of the biking day drop off at our hotel, you both couldn't have been nicer. We enjoyed a wonderful day, one of our vacation highlights to be sure. The setting was so beautiful to bike in and the company was great. Elizabeth, thank you for sharing your personal insight into Italy while we drove, and a great big thank you to both wineries we visited, they made us feel like a guest in their homes. Our wines and olive oils all made it safely back to California and we can't wait to enjoy them. If we are ever back in the Florence area we'll definitely be back.
Thank you again.

Thanks again for a great trip. Thought you might enjoy the attached pictures. If you ever get to the Philadelphia area please look us up! We hope to return again to Florence and we will be sure to book another tour.
All the best,
Kate and Megan, Nevada, USA
Hi Marco, I just wanted to say that Megan and I had the most amazing time with you in February! Even though the hills were still covered with snow I couldn't imagine the bike ride being any better! Thank you so much for everything and not getting discouraged when we couldn't make it up those hills! We love the van support! I wanted to send you that photo, sorry it took so long!
Grazie mille, Kate L. MacLeod
Brian and Lisa Rademasher, Chicago
Marco, Greetings from Chicago! It has been four months since my wife Lisa and I were in Florence. It was in October, roughly the 16th and we were the only two on the tour. I'm sorry it has taken this long to send a letter to you, as I remember our discussion about staying in touch after. Hopefully you remember us, we had good conversation along the route and a fun time tasting the wines at the two vineyards. It should come as no surprise that the wine and olive oil has been shared and consumed quickly.
Thanks again for such a wonderful tour. It was a perfect way to end our Italian vacation! In the chance that you are in the Chicago area let us know. It would be a pleasure to show you around and converse over a good American wine.
I hope this e-mail finds you well and happy in the new year. Take care and we'll be in touch.

Our day biking through Tuscany with you was a highlight on our trip.
Your knowledge of the region helped educate us as we went along. Your biking smarts got us off to a good start and kept us going all day. And your flexibility and willingness to meet our needs helped to personalize the day with unexpected wonderful results.
You have our thanks for making our biking day in Tuscany the best day on wheels we’ve had in a long time.

Jeff and Janet Glew, Beverly, MA, USA
We are back in USA but more than a little sad to be truthful. Our Italy vacation seemed too short. Just as Janet and I were getting into our Latin Groove, bingo, the dance was over. After we left you in Florence, we had a great few days in Cinque Terre and then in Venice. But most of all, our fondest memories are from Tuscany, especially the bike ride with you. Take care, keep up the good work.

Dennis and Michelle Cattin, Bozeman - Montana, USA
We had such an amazing time!!! Thanks again for all you did for us. We loved every minute…… well maybe not EVERY minute! I can think of a hill or two that I didn’t love! The winery, cheese farm and all of the awesome restaurants were the best!
It was so fun to meet you and spend time with you! You were an awesome host!
Thanks so much for the Calendar and map! We’ve had fun showing our families!
I hope your Fall is wonderful. Enjoy your beautiful weather because we came back to snow in Montana!!!!
We’d love to stay in touch and maybe see you in Montana someday!
Our best to you!
Thanks so much!

The Barr Family, Atlanta, GA, USA
Marco - I wanted to thank you again for directing a wonderful bike trip from Florence to Siena on July 6th. The Barr family thoroughly enjoyed our day with Jodie and you. We have many great memories of Italy and your trip is certainly at the top. You will be glad to know that since our return to Atlanta, Cynthia has taken up cycling and cycles frequently throughout each week. Thank you again. David Barr
