Thank you to the whole team at Bike the City for creating such a fun and memorable experience for a group of 19 women on a hen weekend from the UK. Our guides Renata and Paolo were excellent and both so knowledgeable about the city and its history. We all had the best time and definitely recommend this as a must do activity for anyone visiting Milan.

Tour was as expected. Quite safe routes. My bike seat was not so nice and hurt the sitting bones. Otherwise, with this tour you visit the most important places of Milan.

We did a bicycle tour during our group visit to Milano, celebrating the 25 years of our company. We were with 60 persons and of course our group was split up in 5 subgroups. It was a perfect way to explore the city, going through quiet roads and pedestrian areas, stopping at different places with different identities. All participants were enthusiastic, we had good guides explaining ins and outs in a nice way. We can really recommend the tour as an activity for a group to get a good overview of the city Milan.
