  • Had some amazing rides out with Tim, including the Monte Serra! Great guy thanks for getting us in touch.
    Jonny, London
  • We had a wonderful time although I don't think any of us would ever take on the climb to Volterra again with full panniers and tents in 38 degrees! The highlight was the ride from Volterra to San Gimignamo - so beautiful. The bikes were great - especially the saddles - very comfortable.
    Julie, London
  • Thanks for your email. We LOVED our time in Tuscany. The accommodation was fantastic, the hosts were such nice people and so helpful. The bikes were great and very comfortable, and the directions, though at times we found quite challenging :) were wonderful and took us through the most beautiful parts of the countryside. I will be recommending Gusto Tours to all my friends! Thank you so much for all your input.

  • Tim was awesome!!! He was patient with the different level of abilities and had a lot of knowledge about Lucca and its surroundings - we would recommend him to anyone! My 14 year old son is now biking here and wants to get involved in a local biking club as a result!!

  • All in all the bike rentals were great! They delivered exactly the sizes we requested, and each bike even had our names on it (on a sticker). Nice touch.

  • We had a great holiday, thanks. Overall, I thought the service was excellent. You've been great - very helpful throughout. The people who delivered (and picked up) the bikes were punctual and friendly. The bikes were excellent. I've hired bikes on a few holidays before and there has always been some wee problem with them, but these bikes rode like they'd just been serviced, and that was fantastic. If I'm in Tuscany again, I'll definitely use Gusto again.

    Mike Westby- Quality cycle hire, Bearsted UK
  • We loved the Viner bici we got to ride. I was especially happy - it was a great carbon frame, with Campagnolo components, and a women-specific saddle. But everyone really enjoyed their equipment (even with flat pedals). The shop was really helpful and friendly. It was neat to learn that the Viner frames are manufactured in Pistoia (I believe). The shop was easy to find

  • Marco owner of Gusto cycling put together a great cycling tour from Siena to the Val d' Orcia region. Marco was highly responsive and super accommodating from my initial contact throughout the end of the trip. He did everything to make sure that I had the trip of my dreams. The daily route was customized to my fitness level. The hotels he picked were charming, comfortable and as I had hoped. And of course the warm Tuscan culture, food and wine were wonderful. I am currently planning trip with Marco in the spring of 2012 and do not hesitate to recommend him and his company.
    Jay Turley, Seattle, Washington
  • Thank you, we had a wonderful day cycling from Lucca to Empoli. The rentals went smoothly and the bikes were excellent. It was good of you to wait the extra hour for us with our luggage-- we were delayed getting out of Lucca and really needed some time to see the da Vinci museum, which was fascinating!

  • Cycling in Tuscany has always been one of our dreams. When we finally decided to make it happen, Gusto Cycling provided unsurpassed service and flexibility by offering a range of high end bicycles, delivered straight to our chosen accommodations, on time, as promised. Riding to the top of Southern Tuscany’s hilltop towns like Pienza and Montepulicano gave us the best scenery, food, culture, and challenging rides, in what was the best time our family has ever had on bicycles. We shall return!
    James Korpan, Canada
  • Gusto Cycling was excellent! The largest reason I decided to book with you was your quick responsiveness to emails and clear understanding of my expectations. Communication can be difficult across languages and you bridged that gap well.
    Kevin Boss, Sun City USA
  • Riding a bike in Tuscany was the highlight of my recent vacation in that beautiful area of Italy. And Marco, your choice of the bikes my friend and I rode was superb - the Viner Mitus was the finest bike I have ever ridden
    Dan Petterson, USA
  • It was great. The Gippo bike shop was fabulous. They were friendly, patient and helpful. They let me bring the bike back on Sunday when they were closed. They left a key under the clay pot so I could place it in a storage building. All-in-all I got in about 200km of riding. This is about my limit at my current conditioning and accounting for the hills of Tuscany. The roads were great. Everyday a different route. With Google maps and Garmin in was easy.
    Robert Salter, USA
  • Andrea Rossi made the trip! He was a wonderful guide and accommodated both of our riding ability to make tremendous rides. He was very personable, knowledgeable, skilled and very familiar with the area!Itinerary was perfect. The four days were unbelievable!
    Lisa Pisciotta, Denver USA
  • Our experience with Gusto was fantastic. Somehow, very stealthy, all bikes were delivered and picked up. Thank you.....I will highly recommend your company. Bikes were great.  Loved the Willier with the Camy. Just what we ordered!
    Sarah Bleakley, New York
  • I thought the service was fantastic! You were a pleasure to deal with, Andrea was a pleasure to ride with, the routes were excellent (just what I was looking for), the accommodation was top notch, and the bike was superb (loved the frame geometry on that Wilier).  Both hotels were excellent... Salvatore, Antonio and Shelley were wonderful and fantastic hosts. I would recommend both places to anyone.Andrea is a first-glass guide. Great local knowledge, tells a story along the way, and kept a good pace.
    Sam Chandler, San Francisco
