"AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE"
Kathy and I did the Hills, Sea and more tour with Luca and Ricki from Road Bike Tours Italy in May 2018.  An amazing experience with exceptional service, attention, support and encouragement from these two great guys.  Everything was catered for including the latest Bianchi road bikes, fantastic accommodation and meals and riding through beautiful countryside, Tuscan villages and around Elba Island.  We can thoroughly recommend this professional and friendly Tour group.

 "Luca and Michela were perfect riding hosts"
Mary and I arrived in Milano not sure whether we would enjoy our week riding with Road Bike Tours Italy, but there was no need to worry. Luca and Michela were perfect riding hosts and ensure we had a marvellous week of riding around the three Lakes. They asked us how we liked to ride and used that information to tailor their tour to our needs and abilities and from there we had seven wonderful days of riding! Great rides and panoramic routes from a Luca, excellent accommodation, wonderful food and drink, brilliant van support from Michela and most importantly two new friends. We got it all from a Luca and Michela and are really looking forward to joining them again for one of their other tours.

"the perfect bike tour company"
My daughter and I were fortunate to have found Road Bike Tours Italy while searching for the perfect bike tour company that could accommodate our needs and desires. Luca and Michela were our fabulous guides during our tour of the Great Alps and we couldn't have been happier! Each day was an epic ride, punctuated by grueling climbs, amazing vistas and dizzying descents (yes, this are the epic passes made famous by the Giro d'Italia) and then rewarded by a nice hot shower in beautiful accommodations and delicious food and wine in our In addition to having incredible knowledge of the region and its cultural heritage, whereThey possess an incredible zest for life and adventure.

"Absolutely perfect tour - the cycling, the tour guides, the hotels, the food – everything!"
When I booked this tour I could see from the pictures on line that it was going to be pretty outstanding but actually cycling around the three lakes was one of the most amazing things I have ever done! The long hills were a bit of a challenge for me and my husband as we hadn’t ever cycled long ascents before but we really enjoyed doing them and would love to do it again!

"Wonderful trip"
We were a family of four on this trip, made up of parents ages 58 and 72 and two adult children; joined by Paul, an energetic 82 year old Australian gentleman who had just come from a week of cycling in Tuscany. Of the five guests I was the only one on a road bike; the others opted for electric bikes. I found two of the days challenging with fairly long and steep climbs, but a breeze if you're on an electric.

  •   Quando ho prenotato questo tour ho potuto vedere dalle immagini on line che sarebbe stato davvero eccezionale, ma in realtà girare in bicicletta intorno ai tre laghi è stata una delle cose più incredibili che abbia mai fatto! Le lunghe colline sono state un po...'una sfida per me e mio marito perché non avevamo mai pedalato lunghe salite prima, ma ci è piaciuto molto farlo e ci piacerebbe farlo ancora!   Le guide del tour Luca e Richi erano fantastici. Luca era la nostra guida, sulle biciclette con noi e Richi ha guidato il minibus, ci ha seguito con i nostri bagagli e articoli tecnici per le biciclette. Si è anche fermato frequentemente per scattare foto di noi e dei bei panorami, che poi ci ha inviato tramite whatsapp alla fine della giornata. Unirsi a me e mio marito durante il tour è stato Lucianno del Brasile, che non aveva mai guidato una bici da strada prima, ma ha fatto così bene nelle lunghe salite e dopo solo 3 giorni ha usato pedali senza spine! Luca e Richi sono stati di grande aiuto - lo hanno persino aiutato a comprare la sua bici da strada, che era pronta per lui quando è arrivato. La loro conoscenza della zona è stata fantastica dato che vivono vicino al lago d'Iseo, ci è piaciuto ascoltare non solo le informazioni del tour durante il giorno, ma anche le loro storie della loro casa in una serata. Luca è anche un membro di un team di soccorso in montagna ed è stato molto interessante sentir parlare di questo, oltre a conoscere le esperienze di ciclismo di Luca e di Richi. Gli hotel ei ristoranti erano meravigliosi e si poteva davvero dire che Luca si era preso il tempo e gli sforzi per trovarci posti speciali per rendere questo non solo un viaggio in bicicletta, ma una vacanza davvero speciale. Ci siamo davvero divertiti così tanto che ci uniremo a Luca e Richi (e spero Lucianno) l'anno prossimo in un altro tour - non possiamo aspettare! Continua a fare quello che stai facendo Luca e Richi!

  •   Eravamo una famiglia di quattro persone in questo viaggio, composta da genitori di 58 e 72 anni e da due figli adulti; Paul, un energico gentiluomo australiano di 82 anni che era appena arrivato da una settimana di ciclismo in Toscana. Dei cinque ospiti ero...l'unico su una bici da strada; gli altri hanno optato per le bici elettriche. Ho trovato due dei giorni impegnativi con salite abbastanza lunghe e ripide, ma un gioco da ragazzi se sei su un elettrico. Il viaggio è stato molto divertente. Il tempo è stato magnifico, lo scenario magnifico, il cibo e le sistemazioni eccellenti. Luca e Richi il nostro autista / meccanico non avrebbe potuto essere più accomodante o gentile. Sono entrambi ciclisti quasi professionisti oltre ai quali Luca è un esperto di soccorso in montagna. Avevi l'impressione che ognuno potesse smontare e rimontare una bici con gli occhi bendati. Durante le lunghe ascese, Luca è rimasto con me, facendo incursioni occasionali per controllare gli altri. Lui e Richi sono come lepri in bicicletta. Richi ha guidato il furgone ed è sempre stato nelle vicinanze pronto a offrire acqua e qualsiasi altra assistenza di cui potremmo aver bisogno. A volte andava a fare giri in serata. Sia Luca che Ric parlano inglese, quindi la comunicazione è stata facile. Durante le nostre cavalcate e i nostri pasti abbiamo condiviso molte risate e camarerie. Si sentivano vecchi amici. Ci hanno anche aiutato a pianificare il resto delle nostre due settimane in Italia e sono rimasti in contatto con noi tramite messaggi di testo dopo la fine del tour in bicicletta. Più

  •   Luca e suo cugino Ricky, ciclisti accaniti, sciatori e soccorritori di emergenza delle Alpi italiane sono i padroni di casa perfetti per un'esperienza ciclistica. Essendo un ottuagenario ero un po 'preoccupato per alcune ascensioni e dopo alcune discussioni preliminari con Luca, eletto per andare ad...EBike, una decisione saggia. Tutto è andato come un orologio, Luca mi ha incontrato in orario a Milano Centrale, poi abbiamo viaggiato con il suo furgone ben attrezzato e comodo e il rimorchio per biciclette via Malpense, per prendere il resto del gruppo e sul nostro primo hotel proprio sulla riva del lago, Hotel Villa Paradise, il nome di questa regina del XIX secolo magnificamente mantenuta che ha dato il tono all'intero viaggio. Tutti gli hotel 4 stelle, a mio parere, Camere perfette, Ricky avrebbe i tuoi effetti personali che ti aspettano in hotel, cene in gruppo, in hotel o in ristoranti accuratamente selezionati. Guidato come un gruppo con Ricky dietro nel veicolo di supporto, se necessario (nessuno richiesto). Il tour è finito troppo presto, sul lago d'Iseo. Mi sarei goduto un altro giorno o due. Problema risolto, Luca ha organizzato per me rimanere un paio di giorni in più in Paratico, in prima classe essere e essere, Hotel Ulivi e ha organizzato un EBike. Per tutti i ciclisti, Road Bike Tours Italy è un MUST. Incapace di aspettare e unirsi a Luca e alla sua piccola squadra sulle colline e sul mare della Toscana Più

  •   Non ero abbastanza sicuro di cosa aspettarmi, ma avevo grandi speranze che questo viaggio avrebbe consegnato e consegnato! Abbiamo intrapreso il viaggio come il nostro gruppo completo di 6 persone, quindi sapevo che la compagnia sarebbe stata al top con un sacco di umorismo e...bei tempi per tutto il viaggio. Ero un po 'preoccupato di non prendere la mia bici, ma le bici fornite sono state preparate bene per il terreno che abbiamo attraversato, e ci siamo trovati molto bene su di loro per tutto il tempo. Il ciclismo, lo scenario, il cibo e il vino hanno superato le aspettative, ma sono stati i nostri ospiti meravigliosi, Luca e Richi, che hanno legato tutto insieme. Sono persone veramente meravigliose e grandi ambasciatori per il loro paese. Ogni dettaglio era meticolosamente pianificato e nessuna richiesta o compito era troppo difficile per loro da realizzare. Dal momento in cui ci hanno raccolti fino a quando ci hanno finalmente salutato, abbiamo avuto tutta la loro attenzione. Il nostro ospite è diventato molto presto amico intimo e ci mancherà condividere una birra o un bicchiere di rosso con loro alla fine di un altro giorno in sella. La mia grande tristezza è che sto ancora lottando per tornare alla realtà e al tran-tran quotidiano. Tuttavia, so che questo gruppo tornerà in questo meraviglioso paese per condividere più tempo in un'altra avventura con i nostri nuovi amici, ma fino a quel momento dovremo accontentarci di ricordare il nostro viaggio davvero fantastico insieme.

  • 5 star review  I spent over 6 months searching for the perfect bike tour operator before I found Luca with Roadbike Tours Italy. From the first time contacting Luca I had a great feeling about him. He was always very quick to respond to any questions and even sent me updates and photos of what to expect during our ride. I booked a 5 day tour with 2 days in the Alps and 3 days around the lakes finishing my epic journey visiting the Madonna del Ghisallo. This trip had very special meaning to me as it was for my 50th b-day. Luca and Michela are true professionals. Luca is very passionate about his country, cycling and making sure the guest simply gets the VERY BEST EXPERIENCE out of their trip. Luca knows his country better than I know my own home town. He guided me through every twist and turn, every hill, every peak and valley to make sure i saw the most beautiful scenery that can be seen on a bicycle. Michela was our van support and was there at every rest stop to provide me with plenty of water and snacks. Even after the rides we took little side trips to see other parts of Italy. Both Luca and Michela shared stories of their home town and country and filled me with great information about the history and interesting facts about certain regions and about the country of Italy. Luca and Michela are the perfect team together. Every hotel was perfect, every meal was delicious... this trip could not of been more perfect and Luca and Michela became one of my best friends. Thanks to Luca and Michela they made this trip one of the BEST, emotional, trips I have ever experienced. There is so much more I want to see by bicycle in Italy and I will definitely be calling upon Luca and Michela of Road Bike Tours Italy again. Thanks for EVERYTHING Luca and Michela...!!!
