      Great Milan tour
      excellent organization, punctual, precise and bikes in perfect condition. Paolo, who was our guide, proved to be engaging, interesting but above all very knowledgeable, he transmitted all his passion for this city to us, making us discover hidden gems.

      Great way to see the city!
      We really enjoyed our tour with Inga. She gave us lots of information about the city and having the bikes was a great way to get around. We were amazed at how much of the city we saw both old and new. Great morning. Really good thing to do when you arrive.

      Nice way to get to know the city
      Good enthousiastic guide that knows very much about the city. Good mix of old and new history, culture and other nice places to be. Being familiair with using the bike is needed because of the tramrails.

      Grazie Bike The City
      Love a good bike tour and Bike The City nailed it. Paolo was a very insightful guide around 15km and 3 hours worth of the Milano highlights. Learned some good history, got in some exercise and even stopped for a quick cornetto. Grazie Bike The City.

      A great way to discover Milano
      We took a three-hour tour and had an excellent time seeing many highlights of the city. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and he also adapted well to the requirements of our party. It is important to point out that cycling is very safe even in a busy city like Milan, because there are lots of protected cycling lanes. All in all: a 100% recommendation.

      Milano architour with e-bike
      very interesting tour in italian language (but it is also available the english) with powerful and beatiful E-bike. we have visit very hidden and beatiful place in Milano like Villa Necchi, with its coffee bar in front of the garden and the warm pool, villa Invernizzi from outside (for seeing the pink flamingos in the garden) and key important place like Duomo, Sant'Ambrogio and the new part Porta Nuova and City Life three Towers. Paolo is a very nice person and is beatiful tohear the stories of Milano from the ancient up to the moder times... consigliatissimo..

      Sightseeing Milano by bike
      Had a nice guide and perfect weather. Modern relaxed bikes in a good condition. The duration of 3 hours is absolutely enough to explore Milano by bike.

      Very nice bike tour
      We had a great time exploring Milan by bike. Our guide Paolo was a very kind man with a very interesting story about the city. The bikes were good and looked almost new. With a bike you can see so much more than on foot. We recommend the tour.

    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.

    Considering how hot it was In Milan this week, the bike tour was a wonderful way of getting to see the key sites and get a high level overview of each one. It was much cooler biking than walking and when our guide stopped to share information about a given site, he always found a shady area. He was energetic and made the tour interesting. The only thing that would have made it better was if it was a smaller group. There were 10 of us plus the guide which sounds small but when we had to cross streets in the traffic areas the light was never long enough so that meant you were crossing with a red light (scary) or waiting to catch the next green light. We got stuck a few time but the guide was always stopping to make sure he didn’t lose anyone along the way.

    We always love to start our trips with a city bike tour. You get to see the city's key sites as well as get a sense of the geography and terrain. This one did not disappoint. Our guide, Paulo, was terrific. He has a wonderfully gregarious personality and great smile. The bikes were good although mine (#8) had a broken bell. Having a bell in Milan is essential because the bike lanes and streets are crazy busy. People wander in and out of the bike lanes and it is easy to run into someone. Had I had a bell, I would have used it countless times.

    The meeting location was convenient. Limited adjustments could be made on the bikes but overall, they were good city bikes. Plus a pretty light turquise color. People who saw us knew we were part of a tour. Helmets were available but not mandated. We made one stop mid way through the tour where there were nice toilets and some good gelato.

    The tour cycles through old Milan and new Milan. Quite a contrast but together, a magnificent city. Paulo gave us just enough history. We don't care for highly detailed explanations of old buildings, just the key facts and interesting stories. We could not have been more pleased with our 3.5 hour tour.

    My only recommendation is that on Saturday mornings, perhaps a later start, say 9:00. The streets were super busy and at times, it felt unsafe.

    Great way to see a lot of the city in 3 hours. Our guide Laura took all the time to cycle through the city and to give a lot of clear explanations about the history and culture of the city. Our kids (16,14,11 and 8) were very enthusiastic. Especially for the stop at the delicious ice cream shop.

    Thanks for a very memorable tour of Milan. We did the tour with our two children aged 12 and 9 years. Another family (friends of ours) also joined us on the tour. When organising the bikes at the start, the staff were eager to ensure that the correct bikes were chosen for everyone, to ensure comfort and safety. It was one of the hottest days of the year in Milan but there were plenty of water stops at the water fountains along the route. There were lots of stopping points along the way where the guide provided just the right level of information about the monuments, buildings & places of interest. I would highly recommend this tour as it's a great way to see the main sights of Milan without walking in the heat. Our children enjoyed it too and they are a tough crowd!

    We have done the center Milan tour with Bike The City, the tour was customized on our needs. It was a company team activity after a working day with our colleagues from all the world. It has been fantastic ! Paolo, our guide, was very nice and well prepared. Everyone enjoyed the time and appreciated the possibility to do a tour of Milan in short time using the bike. We had fun !

    This experience would have benefited from headsets as I couldn’t hear the guide that much. This would have also allowed for hearing bits about the city as we cycled, which I have had before. The guide was nice but missed speaking about a statue of Leonardo when we were standing right next to it, instead spoke only about la scala. Also, when we stopped for a break it would have been nice to know we were next to the Egg at Portanuova before we cycled past as we left. All in all it was a nice trip around Milan but it felt a little lacklustre compared to other cycle tours I’ve been on.

    Dear guest, thank you very much for joining us and taking the time to write your review. We are sorry that the tour did not completely meet your expectations and, together with the team, we will discuss your comments and suggestions to improve the experience. Usually, guides modulate the narrative according to the time and the group they have and sometimes they may consider focusing on one element more than another or omitting or adding to it according to the storytelling path we have outlined together. We experimented with headphones for a while but they seemed to create a somewhat detached effect. Listening to the guide while cycling seemed to us to be not completely in line with the bicycle tour, at least as we see it. For us, the bike is the medium of an encounter with the city on a journey in which stories and information alternate with leisurely, relaxed cycling. In any case, we are very grateful for your comments, which give us the opportunity to evaluate again and again our ideas, riding on the path we have been taking for more than 10 years in designing an ever-better bicycle tour for our guests. All the best, Francesca co-founder Bikethecity® Milan, Rome, Turin, Verona

    The tour exceeded expectations. From hearing about Milan from other people prior to our trip we were uncertain about what the city had to offer for tourists but this tour definitely changed our minds. I would recommend this tour over just walking around and trying to uncover the city by yourself. Milan has a lot of history that is hidden and this tour will give you some insight into its rich history
