Great way to learn the basic about Palermo
Sep 2020
It was great. Laura truly loves her city and will try to show why you should love it too! The ride is fun and easy, with very minor encounters crossings with cars! Do it, you will not regret it!

First thing you should do in Palermo
We had a fantastic tour with our guide Laura who enthusiastically explained so much about the history, culture, and architecture of Palermo. She even gave us many recommendations for places to eat at and visit. Best way to get an introduction to this beautiful city.

Fantastic, comprehensive way to see the city!
Jan 2020
Had a fantastic tour with Laura! It was my first trip, first introduction to Sicily. (to reconnect w/ family roots). Seeing the old city on bikes was amazing, you get to cover so much more ground than the walking tours, incl. going all the way to the water. It was wonderful to hear about the town from the perspective of a local, and Laura's experiences growing up in Palermo. She was an engaging & delightful host, made it so fun. From an American perspective, also fun to see her stop traffic for us(!), and enjoy connecting w/ others who knew her along the route. She gave us great recommendations for food, gelato, nightlife, etc. filling out a paper map for us which was super helpful. Highly recommended!! Grazie mille Laura & Social Bike!

Wow fantastic and so friendly.
What an experience. They rescheduled an afternoon tour because of our being late for the morning one (sorry). So friendly and helpful, with very knowledgeable guide who was patient with all our questions and shop stops! Our grand daughter, 3 years old, had her seat all organised. Highly recommend as we have done many bike tours.

Fun way to see Palermo!
Oct 2019
Highly recommend this tour...you will get a good feeling for the layout of the city and some excellent history as well. I'm not normally a "tour person" but I found this bike tour to be a lot of fun. Laura was our tour guide; she was a knowledgeable and gracious host who spoke excellent English. Sign up. You won't regret it!

Super fun bike tour to Palermo Highlights!
Sep 2019
Great tour with lovely Laura who proudly guided us around her fascinating city. Her knowledge and humor made this such fun for our small group. She paid attention to our safety and provided many tips for later exploration.
This was much more than learning about historical sites, Laura really gave us a taste of history and life in Sicily. It's like reading cliff notes on a bike, highly recommended!

Some of the most fun you can have on a bike
Oct 2019
This tour had it all. Good bikes, friendly service, a great guide to a fascinating city (with mildly chaotic but enjoyable traffic now and then as a background).
Our guide, Piergiorgio, is passionate about his city and about his clients understanding how and why Palermo is as it is. He has an extensive story to tell, and impeccable English in which to do it. He took us to parts of the town we would otherwise have missed, and gave us excellent advice on what else to visit nearby. It brought the city to life for us in a way that we would otherwise have never envisaged.
We can recommend this trip to adults of almost any age. We are both 75+ and had no difficulty with any of it

Great 3 hour bike tour that helps you discover old town
Aug 2019
this was the perfect way to see some a great deal of old town Palermo. the 3 hour tour starts at a decent hour in the morning before the heat of the day. the riding is actually quite minimal and easy. the tour guide is quite knowledgable. near the end of the tour the guide stops at a local food counter and you get to taste two local treats. start your trip in Palermo with this bike tour and you will be glad that you did.
