"The best part of the trip was the surprise of all the "extras" that Siciclando included in the trip. The cooking class was so much fun and helped all of the bikers get to know each other better. The picnics were relaxed and casual, The lunch in the wine "cave" was over the top! The spontaneous stop at the thermal baths was something that I will not forget."
"The routes were absolutely beautiful."
What a wonderful week exploring the Maremma with Giuseppe. Dario and Giuseppe worked so hard to make this family trip work for us despite our vastly differing biking abilities. We loved Orvieto and the beautiful countryside and small towns of the Maremma (Sovana, Sorano, Pitigliano, Capalbio, Magliano di Toscana) and the ending ride through the cool pine forest of Fineglia National Park with its wonderful beaches on the sea.
"Don't do a Tuscany tour like everyone else! See the true beauty of a relatively unknown part of the country on a bike with Siciclando tours! You'll be able to say you've experienced something very few have had the opportunity to! I have no reservations in saying that this experience has left me wanting to see more of Tuscany and Italy as a whole. The team at Siciclando will surely hear from me again!"
"Best trip of my life! Would highly recommend this for a honeymoon. It was so romantic and riding every day allowed us to eat/drink without gaining a pound!!"
"It was a once in a lifetime vacation and I can’t wait to go back to Italy on another bike tour! I had a positive experience and look forward to the next trip!"
"It was my first bike tour and it exceeded my hopes. I loved the hard climbs and thrilling descents and views; I loved the planned events; and thought the places we stayed were wonderful. I was very impressed with how Siciclando designed the tour and I would love to do their Sicily tour."
"The Siciclando Tour through Tuscany was so beautiful – fun biking, great food & wine, wonderful lodging. It went beyond my expectations and was worth every penny and more."
"The scenery was breathtaking! Words cannot describe it. The tour directors were amazing. I will always call them my friends now instead of just tour guides."
"The trip was fabulous! Amazing scenery and history. Also the size of the group was perfect. You really get to know people and lasting friendships are created. One great thing I have taken away from this vacation is getting to know (our guides) Dario and Marco. I can't say enough how your sincerity and fun easy going manner made this trip so memorable."
"LOVED IT! We are your #1 fans."
"This was our first cycling trip. It was amazing! We enjoyed riding through the Italian countryside and enjoyed every aspect of the tour."
"For us, cycling tours are all about capturing the authenticity of the region we are in and learning. We were very impressed on this count. Our guide, Daniele was outstanding! When each day of the trip gets a little bit better because the routes & towns and lodging are really quite unique, it is a great trip!"
"When we decided to go with Siciclando for our Italian bike tour, we crossed our fingers that everything we had read about them was true. Having completed our trip, I can confidently tell you to leave your worries at home. Siciclando will take care of you. The whole process of planning our trip with Dario via emails was a pleasure. Yes, Siciclando took excellent care of us - but more importantly they did it warmly, and with big hearts. I would absolutely sign on with Siciclando again."
"We felt throughout that our enjoyment of the tour was their top priority and they handled everything most efficiently."
"We would highly recommend Siciclando to anyone looking to bike in Italy. There are a lot of companies out there but Siciclando treats you like family. They provide top notch equipment, accommodations and staff at affordable prices."
"Everything we were told about the hybrid bikes was true. These bikes are excellent! They are perfect for the kind of vacation touring we were doing--stopping to talk with people, to visit ruins and towns, and to take pictures. When Siciclando tells you something is the case, it really is the case. You can trust them--which really counts for a lot when you are planning a biking trip a whole continent away."
"In addition to the larger items (great hotels, a great itinerary, great biking) many of the small details were perfect - you had me completely won over I found a lemon slice in my water bottle. All the food was excellent. In fact, when people ask me if I was on a biking tour, I say 'No, I was on an eating tour, the biking was just a necessity with all the fantastic food.'"
"Our third trip with Sicilando was another great biking tour. We will be back again!"
"Your attention to detail made every minute wonderful."
"You all have done such an incredible job at finding fabulous hotels, amazing food and great friends along the routes!"
"...you spoiled us!"
"Great food, fine wine, best friends, a guide that treated us royally, quiet roads, charming towns and scenery, ideal weather, comfortable bikes, and a great organization. The experience.... priceless!"
"The trip exceeded my expectations in every way - this was the best way to travel - exercise, great food & wine, never a worry about anything - all details were executed to perfection."
"Dario - you were always responsive to my calls, questions and need for assistance."
"Siciclando is a company that pays attention to detail. Whether a small group or large, or customized group, Siciclando tries hard to be extremely accommodating."
"The best part of our trip was Dario! He made the experience outstanding. He answered our endless questions, provided a continuous Italian lesson and took care of all our needs. He was like a member of our family and this was the best family vacation we have ever had. We made memories and stories we will share for the rest of our lives. It was everything I had hoped for."
"Our entire Italy experience was over the top! Giuseppe was fantastic and took care of our every need! I especially loved our lodging and staying in excellent accommodations that gave us a feel of the area we were visiting."
"Overall the trip was a great and memorable experience. The unique aspect of using only local guides enhanced the feeling of being immersed in the culture. Challenge yourself to do more than visit Italy. Immerse yourself in it. You and the bike~ completely absorbed in Italian landscapes. Total Immersion!"
"Most tours are bike focused whereas Siciclando uses biking as the tool to share their country with you."
"If you truly want an AUTHENTIC ITALIAN experience, then plan a trip with Siciclando. Italian owned and operated made a big difference for us."
"A unique experience as one gets to "taste" the real Italy with Italian guides who love their beautiful country and want to "show it off.” And that they do! Perfect combination of riding sightseeing and leisure time."
"Siciclando and their team go out of their way to make the tour enjoyable with a mix of good cycling and added itinerary items to give an overall feel for the area and their culture. We'll be back!!"
"The best part of the trip was the combination of everything...the variety of the landscape we were biking through, the exceptionally good food, the wonderful service at the hotels, the people we met....all of these things made the trip a fantastic experience. We loved the food! The hotels were very good. We really enjoyed that they were very different all of them. One of your strengths is the communication beforehand. Any questions or requests are answered very promptly. You have the mix of friendly and professional communication."
"We chose the self guided bike tour, and although we were "on our own", we really were not. Everything was organized for us (charming hotels, route maps, luggage transfers, train tickets, sightseeing recommendations, etc.) and the staff were only a phone call away at all times. Yes, Siciclando took excellent care of us - but more importantly they did it warmly, and with big hearts. I would absolutely sign on with Siciclando again."
"Sicily is beautiful and the Siciclando routes were fantastic. Transport was effortless. The service. Guiseppe's responsiveness to our requirements during the self-guided trip was exceptional. We felt very well taken care of. The Siciclando team helped make our self-guided tour of Sicily remarkably smooth and enjoyable. Their mastery of the routes and coordination of transport was exceptional. Due to their very courteous service orientation we were able to make mid-tour adjustments to our transportation plans with no hassle at all. We were all very pleased with the result."
"We went on a self-guided, customized 5-day trip through Tuscany. Siciclando was great offering all the mapped out routes, bikes & equipment, exquisite lodging and forwarding of our luggage each day. They it possible for us to have the freedom and adventure of a self-guided trip while still having the support of Siciclando staff. We enjoyed riding the back roads, seeing the non-tourist areas, eating the food, drinking the wines and meeting the locals. All at a relaxed pace that let us soak it all in. We highly recommend Siciclando."
"We were on a self-guided trip, just the two of us and we are still married!! Our trip was great because we had a relaxing, fun, challenging, exhilarating, exhausting time. Great food, great wine, great people, beautiful country side. A wonderful vacation. Siciclando has thoughtfully but a great trip together."
"We loved our custom, self-guided tour in Piedmont. Siciclando planned an excellent route through farmland and vineyards, and the hotels and food were excellent. "
"We loved this tour. It exceeded all expectations. Two highlights were the walking tour of Matera and the wonderful cooking class/evening with Gianna and Giorgio in Lecce. A once-in-a-lifetime experience."
"A Taste of Sicily..." was a beautiful tour, with a nice mix of biking, hiking, sight-seeing, dining, wine-tasting, and meeting memorable people. We felt that Siciclando went out of their way to give us a unique experience that we could not have gotten our own. Regaleale was a high point--the location, the wines, the accommodations. We both really loved the Aeolian islands--the slow atmosphere and the beautiful scenery. Biking in the beautiful Sicilian countryside was a real treat."
"Best bike trip ever!! Our guides, Daniele and Luca were the best- they made the trip really special and made us feel like we were family. The places we stayed were amazing and the food was all time. I will definitely be back on another Siciclando bike trip in the future! I miss Sicily so much- my people!! Thanks for a fantastic trip!!
"Every day of the trip provided beautiful landscapes, delicious food, and lots of laughter. I will absolutely be returning to Italy for another adventure with Siciclando!"
"Giuseppe and Enrico are consummate professionals and great travel companions as well."
"Enrico was attentive and motivated to make all the right adjustments. I was surprised we even went on a test ride! I was impressed with the effort to make sure bikes were right for us."
"We have biked all over Italy with the Siciclando team. The experience and level of service they bring would be difficult to match from other companies."
"Siciclando guides provide the “personal touch” that made the trip truly special. We felt safe, well prepared, and expertly supported."
"A well-organized, tailored trip from very knowledgeable guides for a reasonable price."
"The Siciclando team doesn't only take you riding a stunning part of the world, they play with all your senses. They tease you with delights at the top of climbs, provide routes that are absolutely stunning, and lead you through some amazing history. But, above all, they bring everyone together for amazing stories, laughs, lunches and dinners. I arrived meeting some guides, and I left making lasting friendships. That's pretty special."
"Bikes were easy to ride - and comfortable! Gears perfect for the hills!"
"Best group trip ever! "
"Experience of a lifetime!"
