Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for a great trip and all your help and input in making other arrangements for our trip. Now that I am better aware of what it's like in the hills of Chianti .. spectacular .. I can better "train" for a ride through the hills next time.

Thanks again. Robert

Hey there Marco!

Hope that you are doing well. I want to thank you again for a fantastic week in Tuscany. The trip was outstanding! I appreciate all your hard work that you put into it to ensure that we had a great time. It was duly noted! I also appreciated having Leif there. He was a solid assistant and guide on the road.

Thanks again!

Fondly, Glenn

Hey Marco,

Think I'm speaking for everyone when I say we had an AWESOME trip with you! We made it back to the States in one piece. It truly was a wonderful experience and your description as a 'once in a lifetime' ride was not the least bit exaggerated. Thanks again to you and Leif for taking such great care of us! I look forward to returning to Italy with my family and am hopeful that your travels will bring you to Ann Arbor in November. We would love to return the hospitality.

Again, thanks for your help, enthusiasm, and attention to detail throughout this entire experience!

I Bike Tuscany is very proud to announce that today, on the Florence to Siena ride, Brandyn proposed to Lindsey at the village of Fonterutoli. She said YES. (How could she not...?:-)

We toasted them with a chilled on ice Franciacorta rose. They loved it !!!

Hi Marco,

Sorry this took so long but life went back to its normal pace as soon as we returned from your beautiful country. I have attached a few photos from what was one of our best days ever. The trip was fabulous and you were an amazing guide. It was an experience to remember and I we would love to return with our kids for another Italian adventure.

Thanks again for everything,

We had the pleasure of riding along with Marco while our daughter, her husband and our teenage grandkids did the Florence to Siena ride. Even just riding in the van (and being group photographers), we had a fantastic time! The scenery was just beautiful with the vineyards, rolling green hills and olive groves, and Marco definitely kept us entertained (being a native Florentine [he's called the 'Super Tuscan!'], he is, of course, extremely knowledgeable about the area). We stopped at a wonderful winery for a tasting along the way and a truly unforgettable lunch in a lovely village. Oh, and Siena was great, too! Don't miss it! If we had this much fun just "along for the ride," you can imagine how those actually on the bikes felt. They loved every minute and we all agree it was the best day of our family vacation in Italy.
