Wow…we just got back from a wonderful bike trip to Tuscany with Doug and Robbie. We were blown away by the flexibility of our guides, the personal service, the lovely hotels, fantastic and interesting meals and beautiful countryside. This bike trip was customised for our family and we had a variety of levels of bikers and we all had a great time. A trip of a lifetime!
