Me and my girlfriend booked the 1hr trip at 9am. We had a super fun, comfortable ride and our guide Simon told all kind of information about the city and also gave us some tricks and tips. It was great!

Guide great! The Tour is great! But the bike made a very annoying squeaking noise. We couldn't understand the guide at times.

Davide was great, personable, funny, and helpful. His knowledge of everything was impressive. enjoyed the tour very much.

The only way to see the palace is on a tour so you know what you’re looking at!

The best tour ever. The guide was amazing. No complaints
