Loved this tour. It was a great way to see parts of Milan that you otherwise may not know about. I did it on a Sunday morning and it was quite quiet for a busy city at this time so would recommend if you can. Our guide Paulina was absolutely fabulous. She knew so much about the history of Milan and also current developments. She was able to answer any questions and was very friendly.

Great tour around Milan seeing some main attractions and venturing a little out of the main city centre to see the newer area of the city. Our guide was helpful and very well informed and we stopped about 2 hours in for a 15 min break. The bikes were great, comfortable and easy to use. Would recommend this to get to know Milan!

Super fun way to see the city from a different side. Interesting info and also time for an ice cream in between. Top guide with a lot of knowledge about Milan.

Got a good picture of Milan in a short time and it was great to experience this by bike.

It was a very nice tour, highly recommended in the morning <3
