Gusto Cycling Customer Reviews From 2014

 Well, we finished our days around Montecatini Terme with better weather, awesome views as we cycled to Montecatini Alto and beyond, then to Vinci and it’s beautiful rolling hills. We made a good friend with Massimo, he was sure to point out what we should look for on our next day’s cycle.  He showed us the best place to enjoy a Florentine steak, what a fantastic meal!  The bicycles worked well for us. We appreciate your work in arranging our time in Montecatini Terme. A beautiful cycling destination! Marty & Tom – Vancouver, Canada

  Just a quick email to say a big thanks to you for a truly wonderful cycling holiday in Tuscany. All of Headstrong Cycling Club Kildare who participated were full of praise for the way that Gusto Cycling put the itinerary together, managed the trip and arranged routes, food and drink. Thanks also to Stefano. We will certainly recommend Gusto Cycling to other clubs as we discussed and to friends. I also hope to use your services again outside of the Club. Declan E – KIldare, Ireland

Ah, it was great! Great bike and great service. You gave me a nice carbon bike for the price of the standard one. Wish I could have ridden longer, only rode one day for around 100k but will go back someday soon!  Raynard P – Mexico City

We want to say how pleased we were with the arrangements, which all come off very smoothly, and with the bike, which was an excellent machine. We had a fantastic time, and were blessed with beautiful weather – and no punctures! Your efforts in making it all happen were fundamental to the success of our holiday.  Ian and Susan C – Auckland, New Zealand

Fantastic!!!! Organisation, venue, hotel, Friday meal… everything was just great! Already looking forward to L’Eroica Britannia next year…Will be taking the family back to Castelvecchi next year – after the wife saw the photo’s, I had no choice!!  Gareth Rowbotham – Doncaster

 Thanks for everything. The bikes were ideal. We were mainly on the roads, but did in total about 5kms on dirt roads. I was so impressed that you use Ortlieb panniers. Jacope was great – friendly, punctual. And Tuscany was ideal cycle touring – I was in heaven. I was also very impressed with Italian drivers. They did not live up to their stereotype!

We had not one bad experience. Quite the reverse. After spending time in Florence I think Italian drivers understand sharing the roads with cyclists – something NZ drivers could learn from! Thanks once again for facilitating a truly memorable experience. Regards John – New Zealand

Grazie! Thank you for a superb week on our own, on el-bikes from Gusto Cycling. The bikes were promptly and friendly delivered and collected at our place, and they were reliable and fun in steep Toscana hills. Regards, Dag Hermansen – Norway

The pick up and drop off at the royal hotel in Pisa was very good, when we returned the bikes to the hotel, the reception staff were very helpful and offered to let us use the private washrooms on the first floor. Andy Harris – Scotland

I have a very good souvenir of our trip. The trip, the company and the bike! I still have your very original business card in my wallet! Luc Caenepeel – Belgium

We had a great trip.   My wife very much appreciated her electric bike.  I think I’m about ready to do the same on my next trip. Tuscany is the  –  best.  It’s hard to find a territory so friendly to biking for such a large portion of the ride. Gerry L – Wisconsin, USA

Anyway, my experience with Gusto Cycling Services was amazing. From the start you were quick in response and keen to make everything happen. Even after I messed up the dates you made sure that I could still hire a bike for a couple of days and enjoy the beauty of Tuscany. Laura from Gippo was also amazing, even meeting me on a day off so I could have the bike for as long as possible. I hope to return soon and will definitely be in touch if I need a bike. Coulter P

 I had a great time road cycling in Tuscany. The bike went well and the service at the shop when I picked it up was very good. In New Zealand we bike with the brake levers switched around but I’m used to riding both ways so it was no issue. The riding was excellent, I loved the rolling hills, I am very pleased I went to the effort to hire a bike. Many thanks! – Hedley, New Zealand

Regarding the bikes, they were very comfortable and their soft carbon made our ride in the Tuscan hills a very enjoyable experience.  The whole process of delivering the DeRosa bikes, making sure they were functioning properly, and finally picking them up when agreed upon was very pleasing.  Thank you for providing such wonderful high-end bicycles!! Lester C. from Miami, FL, USA

Marco, another tremendous holiday riding the hills in Tuscany!  Thank you again for supplying the bicycles and for making the  whole process seamless and painless.  Looking forward to my next Tuscan cycling adventure and will definitely plan on using Gusto Cycling! Doug A  New York, USA

 The service was excellent.  Sorry that I was not there when the bikes arrived — my flight to Italy from US was delayed by 24 hours. It was also great that your pick-up service was able to collect the bikes in the evening of the final day — we were able to go on a long ride that day because of your ability to be flexible.  The bikes were of very high quality and I was impressed you were able to supply the “XXL” frame which made my riding comfortable. –  John Y, Wisconsin, USA

Marco provides a first class service and has fantastic knowledge of cycling in Tuscany. He sent us to some amazing places we would not have found without him and was always happy to respond to any questions we has when we were out in Tuscany. We would definitely recommend Gusto Cycling. – Dan Hill and Susan Short – Ilkley, Yorkshire

I have only great things to say about the service. Bike was delivered on time we agreed and it was a great bike I really enjoyed riding for the 2 weeks. It had even been fitted with a cassette suitable for the mountains and hills there. Will be in touch again when I return to Italy and have already pointed friends who ride in your direction. Many thanks! – Mike, London NW1

Marco great service, great bikes, we both really enjoyed the riding in Italy, I would recommend you to other people without a second thought! – Bill M from East Sussex

Highly recommend using GustoCycling when it comes to cycling holiday in Tuscany.
We rented delicious road bikes, got good suggestions for routes in the local area, and also together with proposals for various attractions. GustoCycling also arranged to book our transportation from the airport and to the hotel and back again. Everything worked perfectly. – Geo Lazarotti from Denmark.

I´m smiling the whole circle. I´m so happy with our trip. My impression on Gusto Cycling is great. Everything was 100%. The Google map routes were good. Each evening Örn put the route in his Iphone and we had no problems. The bikes were great. All the towns we stayed in were so nice and beautiful. All the hotels were very  nice with such nice staff.I used facebook when we were travelling and my friends in Iceland they were so interested. I have been giving them info and Gustocycling and your homepage. – EDDA N from Iceland

I was very satisfied. The bike came in the right size, and the right quality. There were a lot of tools (pump, tubes, gas etc.) included – I didn’t use it though – so it was really OK. – Kasper F. Copenhagen, Denmark

We had an amazing time, and thank you so much for your help in the planning. The Bianchi bikes were brilliant and we had no problem with them at all. – Sam A. Scotland

The bike was perfect and I had a lot of fun. Again, thank you for your help. I will make sure to recommend you in the future. – Klaus Van B Davis, California, USA

The bikes were great and in beautiful condition. Pick up and collection all went really smoothly. – James M. London

Marco, another tremendous holiday riding the hills in Tuscany!  Thank you again for supplying the bicycles and for making the whole process seamless and painless. Looking forward to my next Tuscan cycling adventure and will definitely plan on using Gusto Cycling! –Doug A – New York, USA

We were very happy with everything & loved biking in Tuscany. – Sara L from Nevada USA
