Fantastic way to see the city
Sep 2020 • Couples
Guiseppe was a great guide - so full of interesting local knowledge delivered in such a humorous way. On a bike you cover so much of the city in 2 hours and get off the tourist track. Good opportunity to note what you want to visit. Totally recommend this tour.

Do a Walking Tour Instead
Oct 2019 • Solo
While our guide was lovely and knowledgeable and made numerous stops to talk about the sights, I felt the city itself is not conducive to doing a bike tour. It is crowded with pedestrians, cars and motorcycles and difficult to look around fully appreciate your surroundings while dodging obstacles and trying to keep up with the guide.

We did the 2 hour tour. Have done tours in cities all over. In Bologna its people rather than cars that are the problem.
Its still a great way to get a handleon a place & see how everything fits together. The guide was excellent with lots of context. A no brainer. Just do it :)

Worth a look
Sep 2019 • Couples
In a town that might be comparatively limited in things to see this tour was welcome. A very informative and enthusiastic guide (can't remember his name but he is an actor!) who was great. Definitely filled in some hours productively.

Bikes in Bologna
Sep 2019 • Friends
Very knowledgeable guide. Great getting around Bologna on a bike, seeing many areas that otherwise wouldn’t have seen. For example the canal that was typical of old Bologna in earlier times and significant churches and piazzas. Sunday is a great day to take this tour as cars aren’t allowed into the centre of town. A good souvenir would be a map of the route that our guide took us on. Our group of 4 all thought this was a great tour.

Classic tour
Aug 2019
Only 8 of us in the tour. Done a few of these types of tours which I find are great to orientate yourselves round a city. This one was no exception and our guide was knowledgable friendly. Loved the tour, my only suggestion would be a break for drinks as it was baking hot.

Loved it! A nice easy ride with comfortable bikes and knowledgeable local guide Lorenzo, an excellent and very interesting tour. It was very hot so my only suggestion would be stopping somewhere for a drink and snack halfway through.

Great tour & guide (plus eBike)
Apr 2019 • Family
Four of us signed up for an English speaking tour and were not disappointed. We were guided at a nice easy pace through this lovely town - stopping every 5/10 mins or so for a short brief on the history / sights / photo opportunities etc. The guide's bike had a puncture and a spare bike was quickly delivered from the shop (good to know). One of our group pre booked an eBike and that worked really well. Well recommended.

Disappointed
Apr 2019 • Family
We were in a group of 13. My opinion that is too large of a group based in the area being covered and at the rate you need to bike. The streets are VERY CROWDED. You need to watch out for cars, other bikers, people, dogs, etc. The guide had a lot to say but did not wait for people to catch up. He just kept talking and I don’t think he knew people were not all together. The audio was scratchy as we took off and then stopped working for all of the riders. There was no wing man at the end when we began the trip. the guide just took off. No warning that there is street lights for bikers and you better obey the rules of the road. For us, This was not an enjoyable 2 hours. One of the riders fell at the end of the trip. Thankfully she was ok. This was our experience. :(

Interesting tour in the center between the towers
Oct 2018 • Couples
The tour starts at very close to the city center and visits the main sights of Bologna. There was heavy traffic so the visitors have to pay attention of the buses and cars. The tour guide speaks to a mic and the visitors wear an earphone and I cannot understand everything because of the noise but it was OK.

Hello!! Thanks for taking the time to review us! Each and one of your comments, proposals and reviews help us grow and better ourselves! It's true that Bologna has , at certain times and days, heavy traffic...buses, taxis, cars and motorbikes move in what seems total chaos! Just a litte assurance..thankfully they're all very used to bikes as here locals use the bike every day, so it's pretty safe :) We're sorry you had trouble with the ear-plugs and/or the radio guide.. All our tour guides have spare radios and earplugs with them during a tour just in case one of them causes any problems, and we advise everyone to tell the guide if there's any kind of audio problem so that it can be fixed on the spot allowing everyone to truly enjoy the experience!! We apologize for not realising....
