    4.5 - Excellent

    The tour was really good. We enjoyed it and had a great time. The instruction and set up of the bikes was excellent. The bikes Trek Emonda S5 bikes were good. The compact gearing was good for the terrain (50/34 & 11/28). The bikes should be outfitted with 2 water cages. One bike had 1 water cage and one bike had 2 water cages in our case. The accommodations were outstanding throughout the tour. All the hotels were in really great locations in the towns with excellent views. The towns we visited were outstanding (Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena, San Gimignano, Voltera). The luggage pick-up and delivery was good. Only 2 days did we arrive before the luggage. One of these days was a short riding day and one day the car with the luggage had broke down. Still the luggage arrived in a timely manor. The only suggestion would be to have options of longer rides on the short days. Perhaps on the 19 mile (31 km) and 17 mile (27 km) days should have an option to lengthen the rides to 30 miles (48 km). The optional route on the day off should have a shorter option than 40 miles (65 Km). I enjoyed the self guided tour. With the use of the Garmins we had turn by turn instructions and navigation was easy. Only in Siena did we have problems finding the hotel. And this was only after we arrived in town. With the self guided tour we could start when we wanted and set our own pace which was quite nice.I would highly recommend this tour and tour style (self guided) to other people.

    5.0 - Excellent

    My husband and I knew we wanted to bike in Italy, but it was hard to choose which company to use. We chose Pure adventures based on the destinations and cost and were extremely satisfied. Communication leading up to the trip was thorough and prompt. The bikes were perfectly sized to our needs and in near new condition. We had an amazing time biking through the Tuscany countryside while winding up and down roads leading into each town. Each afternoon we were welcomed at nice hotels and enjoyed an afternoon or evening of wandering throughout each city. Overall it was a highlight of our trip to Italy we will always remember.

    The transportation was great we had some really fun nice men. They always loaded our bags safely and made sure that our fragile items were well taken care of. The men took great care of my computor and wine. Upon arrival day the bikes were not correct at all our Greeter Daniel worked tiredlessly till night time until we had the right bikes for all the women. The size of the frames were wrong. We are bike experts and it was a dissapointment. Daniel gets an A+ for working way late until the bike mechanic brought the proper size frames. I believe we had 4 out of the 8 bikes incorrect. We needed more medium sized frames and we had all smalls. We know bikes we bike all summer in Jackson Hole. You don't have to be a bike expert to read weight and height and get the bike sizes correct. The hotels truely varied from a hostel situation to nice hotels. I wasn't that impressed with the Hotel Dei Capetini. That hotel may have more to offer in the summer but 3 beds in one room right next door to the busiest road didn't work. I have to say that every woman compained about that hotel. It seemed like I had stayed in nicer hostels than that hotel. The only good thing they had going for them was a nice receptionist named Martina. Other that that Martina should go get a new job and run for a nicer hotel to work at before her dreams die. The third bed in each room was a child like pullout. I am 4'11 and still felt like the bed was too small. It was really the worst part of the trip was that place. We got over it at the next hotel but I will be writing them a bad review. They were completly ill prepared for us and I could tell that everyone else staying there was unhappy too. It felt like cars were going to drive right through our widow straight for my head. I firmly believe that Pure Adventures needs to take that hotel out of the trip. To be honest I felt a bit robbed even staying there for 1 night. I thought the GPS was a joke. I'm not sure what year the Garmin is but there has got to be a better way to make sure that the Pure Adventures guests go the right way. Perhaps an app would work better. Even the glare on the Garmin was impossible to read. I found that trying to teach 7 women in their 60's about a crappy GPS is not a good idea. I had many good times on this trip so I don't wait to keep on hammering on about the bad times. I'd just say that this trip could be so much more. I wish I had the opportunity to redo this trip itinierary for you guys. So So So much was missed out. I'd like to say thank you to Melanie who put the trip together she was such a great glue to us having the good times we did have. I would perhaps take another Pure Adventures trip in the future. Maybe in the states. I've heard from other people they had better experiences than I did so I would give it another shot. If it was super discounted. That's how C+ I'd rate the trip.
