Wonderful tour on the Alps

Luca and his staff are wonderful tour guides and I had an amazing time with them! They led a truly splendid bike trip for me through the Alps on roads I wouldn't have found on my own. The views were stupendous! Luca set up the bike for me beforehand and fitted it to me perfectly so that I was comfortable the whole time. Along the way, he would stop and teach me about specific towns and their history and point out unique features of the landscape, for example the names of mountains. The food and lodging organised were also exquisite and I got to taste typical foods from the area we were riding through, for example the pizzoccheri della Valtellina which are so delicious. Everything was organised splendidly and I would highly recommend going on a tour with them!

My mom and I are avid cyclists and wanted to do a Europe bike trip for my college graduation celebration. We found Luca and Michela online and they were very responsive and friendly, helping us plan arrival, bike fitting and rental, hotels etc. They were extremely accommodating, picking us up in their support van with all our luggage in a city 2 hours away from Bormio, where we were to stay for the bike trip. We immediately hit it off! Luca and Michela are the sweetest couple and most fun, responsible bike guides and tour guides. Luca, a pro bike racer and ski rescuer and mountaineer, is extremely fit for the job and can accommodate cyclists of any level- my mom and I are fit and advanced and he was keen to show us some of the most formidable, but beautiful routes of the Giro d'Italia! Michela is incredible in the support van, an expert driver manoeuvreing through very narrow roads and stopping ahead to take amazing photos of us! Both are very organised and prepared to improvise according to weather. We felt very safe with them. In addition, they are AMAZING tour guides! They knew everything historically and culturally about the region in the alps, and took us on beautiful outings in the van to special monuments and towns. They are also lighthearted, Luca cracking jokes and Michela always smiling. We laughed a lot, became very close friends with them and would 150% do the trip again with Luca and Michela! Having them as bike and tour guides is a MUST! Grazie mille, Luca and Michela!
