Cycling in Tuscany, Siena and Chianti

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The day we spent in San Grimignano when it was too wet to ride (although we enjoyed the cycling a lot).

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leaders, Radu and Natalie, were excellent. They were very knowledgeable, well-organised and good at solving problems.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Tuscany is quite hilly. It might be a good idea to try some hills in England first. If a hill is really formidable you can get a lift in the support vehicle so you don't need to worry about the hills too much. In September the weather in Tuscany can be wet. Taking good quality waterproofs is a good idea because although it may be possible to take a day off cycling because of bad weather there will be days when you have to cycle whatever the weather because you need to get to the next destination.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Overall, this was a fantastic holiday.
