I strongly recommend Girolibero cycle tours. I have now cycled a self-guided, guided, and bike and barge trip with Girolibero and I recommend them for a variety of reasons.

Accommodations: Very good
Luggage transport: Excellent
Information packet: Comprehensive and reliable

Orientation: Very good. Due to one of us having substantial hearing loss, the accent of the presenter was at times difficult to overcome. Follow up questions were always addressed.

Emergency response: Excellent. Both Paul and I needed Girolibero emergency response during our cycle tour from Bolzano to Venice. During a self-guided ride from Bolzano to Trento, I became sick and needed to be picked up and transported to our next hotel in Trento. A test message to Girolibero allowed me to be picked up and transported to Trento without harming my health. Both Paul and I were eternally grateful. In addition the next day Paul was riding the tandem by himself, and unbeknownst to him the right pannier fell off the bike. Because we had our Girolibero information inside of the pannier the Italian woman who found the bag on the cycle track along the river, phoned Girolibero emergency # and an hour later the pannier was returned to us. This was a big deal for us. Our computer was inside of the pannier and thankfully was returned in tack.

Cycle tours in Europe are awesome and a well run business is essential in making your tour everything you hoped it would be. As a retired person, who happens to be a double amputee, I am always concerned about what might happen if my health creates problems on the trip. I now know that Girolibero will be there for me if difficulties have to be overcome.

Thank you for two great trips this fall. Our team of friends will forever be grateful. And I forgot to mention the food! How could I have done that? On the bike and barge trip from Mantua to Venice, the food was everything you want it to be. Outrageously good!

Girolibero runs a very efficient cycling business both self guided and guided. I recommend Girolibero for guided, self guided, and bike and barge cycling tours.

We had an opportunity in the fall of 2018 to ride their self guided tour for a week from Pisa to Florence and back to Pisa. The accommodations were excellent, the transfer of gear reliable, and the ride with gps routes as well as the hard copy of the routes made it doable to navigate this countryside even when you have never been here. Five of us rode together, we all enjoyed the Pisa to Florence to Pisa loop.

In addition to meeting the groups needs, I am a below the knee double amputee who rides a tandem bicycle. Girolibero organized our hotel accommodations so that my physical needs concerning bathrooms were accommodated. This made the trip doable for me and my captain.

I have a suggestion for expanding the options for the Pisa to Florence to Pisa loop. I would suggest that Girolibero consider doing the Pisa to Florence to Pisa route over an extended period of time, such as two weeks, so those people who like to cycle (and are slow) can be tourists too. The possible activities that can occur at each site are endless and the information packet given to each couple makes you want to stay and enjoy each small town and its historical gifts. For those of us who are retired and somewhat slow, this would be a fun option.

Just completed the Mid October tour from Bolzano to Venice. First I want to thank you for the beautiful weather. The Vita Pugna with 18 bikers was a good size. The tour leader Michela is a jewel. The captain and cooks brought joy to their work. Their team work was evident. We enjoyed our fellow bikers from the USA and Germany. We always looked forward to the evening meals. Outstanding!

The self guided three days from Bolzano to Mantua were more challenging with more spectacular scenery (Lake Garda and the grape and olive orchards were interesting and on lovely bike paths.

The bike and barge had easier mostly flat biking days, filled with wonderful stops to a cheese factory, carnival rides museum and so on. Everyday included a different delight. The tour leader was very helpful in getting us situated in Venice with water bus schedules and transportation to train station and airport.

We so much appreciated the nature of the bike and barge with meals prepared, a guide leading on the trails and roads, no packing and unpacking each day, and help with connections. It is a real vacation.

La bellezza dei luoghi, le città visitate, ricche di proposte culturali ed artistiche, compensano di gran lunga qualche piccolo difetto che è normale incontrare in ogni viaggio.
Mia nipote ed io ci sentiamo di consigliare questo itinerario cicloturistico.

Viaggio all'apparenza facile, ma con qualche difficoltà se si pensa che non mancano i tratti di sterrato che mettono alla prova braccia e fondo-schiena. La penultima tappa la più impegnativa con saliscendi continui e un tratto finale di sterrato di circa 10 chilometri. Nel complesso un viaggio che lascia molta soddisfazione per la varietà dei percorsi e dei paesaggi che propone.
