WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT IBT
I don't know if you remember me or not, but last year, July, you took me and my two daughters, Jenny and Chrissy, on a biking tour. I was just reminiscing about it and wanted to tell you once again that it was one of the best parts of our Europe trip. I got a new street bike this past spring and have been doing lots of riding. I hope to return to Italy one day, and if I do I will definitely contact you.
I have some friends from Toronto that are planning a trip to Italy and they seem very interested in contacting you about a tour. I gave them your email. I'm sure you will show them a very good time.

Marco - just wanted to let you know what a great time Tom and I had on our tour with Elizabeth last Tuesday. Her in depth knowledge of Italian wine and helpful tips on the region were great and really made our stay in Tuscany all the more enjoyable. We now go home feeling like we understand Italian and in particular Tuscan wine a lot better and look forward to putting our knowledge into practice!
We would not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone else who loves wine combined with a bit of exercise.

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our day with Elizabeth yesterday. She was great and the kids did fine. We had a wonderful time and will let our friends know about you.

I just wanted to send a note of gratitude for creating an amazing day for Lisa and I and more giving Lisa the amazing recognition on your website. It truly was a remarkable day for us and, even though you probably have countless days like it, I would hope it was an amazing day for you as well. Thank you again . . . Take care and I hope to speak with you soon.
Marco and Elizabeth,
We had a wonderful time on the wine ride. The gentlemen at the first winery was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wine. Sean, at the second winery, was really great also, and we especially enjoyed the personal tour and attention we received there. I hope to get in better shape! My husband and my sons may join you on another ride in the future, they LOVED it, but would have loved an even longer ride. Thanks again.

The tour was the HIGHLIGHT of our honeymoon... Thanks so much for putting us on your site, we're truly honored. Thank you again for such an incredible day, it will be with us forever.

Not sure if you will remember our bike ride, it was just on a month ago. I am now home in Australia and the bike ride was one of my trip highlights. Thanks so much for the day.
We will drink the wine and remember you. With kind regards and fond memories.

So sorry it has taken us a while to write to you. We just received the photo of Mario – thanks so much! We wanted you to know that our time spent with you was the best part of our trip to Tuscany and we told Diane this. We raved about you and how well you took care of us. We told Diane that she should hang on to you as a business partner because you were such a gem.
Thanks again so very much for the wonderful cycling through Tuscany. You provided us with the best views, the best food and the best accommodations of our entire trip.
We are grateful for your tremendous knowledge of cyclists and cycling and how you used this to create a magical tour for us. We told Diane that the only regret we had was that we didn’t spend more time cycling with you! Next time, you will also be on a bicycle with us!
We hope to return to Tuscany with a bunch of friends to cycle with you again. Maybe the Dolomites next time!
Please know that if you are ever on the East coast of the US, you have a place to stay and cycle. We would love to show you Chester County, Pennsylvania from a bicycle.
All the best to you, your team and your business. Thanks again, so very much!
– Mary (Maria) and Bijan Pashanamaei, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
I just want to reiterate what Gail Hoerr already said to you, but our bike trip with you last week was most certainly the highlight of the trip for me! I saw Steve Runkle the other day (he rode with you last Tuesday), and he, too, said the bike trip was the highlight of his trip. You run a wonderful business, and I appreciate your accommodating us with our different opinions. It was especially nice to be able to add ten miles to our ride. Thanks again for a great day! I have already begun spreading your name to others.

Sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. We are not sure of the name of the ride we did, but If you remember it was the last week of June and you picked us up in Florence. We were going to do one of the easier wine rides but you told us that the castle that we were supposed to tour was not open that morning. You told us about another more difficult ride up a dirt road to a small village which I believe was called Volpaia. You convinced me, and I convinced my wife that we should do that one. Your description of the ride was right on and it proved to be pretty challenging and quite rewarding. We wanted to write a testimonial for you since we had such a fabulous time and even though it was difficult we really enjoyed it. The ride was fun, the bikes were perfect, your companionship was great and it was the highlight of our vacation. I would highly recommend your tours to everyone.
