This tour was fantastic! Not only were they very accommodating and rescheduled our your when we had an emergency, but the tour itself was so informative, pleasant, and comfortable. We learned things about Lecce that we would have never learned on our own. The guides were friendly, patient with our questions, and some English very well. We were nothing short of impressed!!

We went out with 9 people, first your bike was properly adjusted and we got water and then we went on the road. It was a nice international group and the route was manageable despite the heat, with regular stops at the sights and a lot of explanation about everything. Our guide, Antonio, is a walking/cycling history book, learned a lot again. Big thumbs up!

Beautiful city. Our guide, Diletta, was courteous, professional, funny and super thorough. A tour that allowed us to get to know Lecce and its main characteristics, thus giving us the opportunity to better understand what we saw individually in the afternoon, walking around the city. Thanks Diletta!

Wonderful day in Lecce, thanks also to the guidance of Prof. Luigi Bianco who with his professionalism allowed us to discover a splendid Lecce with its facets and details that we would not have been able to grasp on our own. Recommended visit

Was really a great tour, seen a lot well explained and very entertaining. Regardless of the tour, very nice conversations with our guide.
