A superb morning in the company of Sofia, our guide, characterized by her good humor and competence. Pedaling really does not pose the slightest problem for those who know how to ride a bike. We walk through the streets and we discover a multitude of anecdotes related to the superb city of Turin. Little story and Big Story, everything is clearly explained and told at each stop. I recommend both for those who are in a hurry (like me, unfortunately) and for those who will have the chance to stay in the city for a while and who can easily find and deepen the places visited which are really abundant. This visit will remain an excellent memory!

Sofia, our guide was exceptional and travelling on e bike was such fun!!! We loved her enthusiasm for the city and her warm nature came through in everything she said, did and spoke about. Highly recommend on first day in the city to get a true understanding of this remarkable place. Must do!!
