Very knowledgeable and fun tour person. It was 9 person group. Only myself as American others from Europe. From tip perspective, it might not be good for the tour leader. But he did a very nice job!

Bologna is a bike friendly city so the tour was fitting. If you're in town for a short time, then this is a good way of seeing the city; though not exhaustive.

City Cycle Tour -Bologna

Giuseppe a great guide and we learnt a lot about the history and present day Bologna. Substantial bikes which can be ridden safely around the City. Weekends have less traffic but more footfall as pedestrianised areas increased. Tour during Covid times but support staff sanitised bike for our use. Felt safe.

Great way to explore Bologna

You cover a lot of ground in Bologna because you are on a bike. There are a couple of breaks during the ride where you'll have a chance to explore. The guide knew her history of Bologna. They provide radio and headset so you can hear the guide while on the bike. The bikes are easy to ride and it is a relatively flat bike ride. I definitely recommend as something different than a walking tour.

We did this bike tour at the very start of a short holiday in the centre of Bologna. It's a great way to quickly spot the key attractions and to generally get a feel for the layout of the city. It's gentle cycling, and so much easier than trudging around the city on foot in the heat. Our guide, Giuseppe, was very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Thank you!

We rode with Francesco who was an excellent guide with a thorough knowledge of Bologna and Italian history. The bike tour was 2 hours and we were given all kinds of information about where to spend our time after the bike ride. The ride took us through all of the downtown sites and important sites. It was not a difficult ride at all and my wife and I felt very safe riding along the streets.

Un moyen intéressant et agréable de visiter la ville. Beaucoup de ruelles, de places, la ville se prête bien à ce type de visite. Le bémol est que la voix du guide ne portait pas. Même amplifiée avec les écouteurs on entendait mal.

Hi, we're aware of what happened and we are very disappointed. Usually when something happens to the radio, the guide inform us so we can fix the problem during the tour. Unfortunately we don't know why the guide didn't told us the problem. Beside that we hope you enjoyed the tour and we expect to see you again in Bologna.

met de fiets door historisch Bologna
mldekoning
, Jul 2018
Vooral het feit dat door de oordopjes die je krijgt de gids steeds kon verstaan, maakte het een ontspannen tocht. In die twee uur op de fiets zie je veel en hoor je veel. De groep bestond uit 4 personen met voor en achter iemand van de organisatie (de gids reed voor en achteraan iemand die op de fietsen lette terwijl wij een gebouw binnen gingen). Als Nederlanders zijn we gewend om te fietsen, dat is wel plezierig in Italie!!
