Very enjoyable easy riding ebikes. Viola is a superb, knowledgeable and friendly guide. She picks interesting stops and tells the stories about murals (paintings), an ancient church and lots more. Plenty of swimming and sunbathing on a beautiful beach.

Very friendly and caring staff. The meeting place is directly at the bike shop. We discovered the city of Pisa differently, the audio guide is very useful and the electric bikes of very good quality, very easy activity. Superb experience!

The staff was friendly. The bikes were good. It was a nice way (there nicer than back). It would be helpful to note that you should first load the Komoot app. All in all a very successful trip!

Ideal trip to enjoy nature by e-bike and discover both Lucca and Pisa. Also gone back by bike (instead of train). Rental bicycles well arranged. Recommended

Do not do this alone! Too many things could go wrong!
