Had an awesome ride of 85k and 1500m elevation on a quality carbon road bike. Paired with an excellent local rider on a sunny day it was perfection. Equipment, guide and service all 5 star.

We rented two scooters and drove into the fabulous Chianti region. There is a friendly and humorous guy at the counter that gives good advice about the routes and destinations. Scooters are in perfect condition. Service outstanding. Views amazing and so are the wines!
