What sets Gusto Cycling apart?

That’s easy; attention to detail. We don’t do package tours, every request we receive is different and we treat each booking individually. Once we have a full understanding of your requirements, we apply a combination of cycling expertise, and local knowledge to carefully curate your tour to give you the perfect experience and the special memories you’re looking for.

But don’t take our word for it, here some feedback from a few bespoke tours we made earlier:


Excellent organised cycling holiday, my wife and I hired 2 bikes (one E-bike, one carbon road bike), Marco provided us with routes for each day length to suit our requirement with mixture of road and white roads. Started in San Gimignano – Gaiole – Serre di Rapolano – Pienza – Montalcino stayed in good hotels and our bags where transferred from hotel – hotel.

I used Ridewith GPS app for routes which was fantastic and made sure we did not get lost in any of the towns we visited. Gusto cycling also organised transfers to and from the airport which all when smoothly and Marco made sure he meet up with us on route to make sure erecting was alright.

Very flexible in their planning of ternary to suit your requirements (i.e length of rides/standards of accommodation etc). Provide useful information for each days rides with regards places to visit and coffee / lunch stops etc.

This was the 3rd year in a row that Marco has taken care of us in Italy and even though L’Eroica was cancelled we manged to sneak in a few days cycling in Tuscany in early September.

Marco arranged bike hire including delivery and collection for us, we couldn’t have been happier and I can’t reccomend Gusto Cycling highly enough, always a pleasure to deal with.

My wife and I booked a self guided cycling tour of Tuscany in Sept. 2019. Marco of Gusto Cycling were wonderful throughout the process. The routes chosen, routing app and maps, bicycles, accommodations, service and personal attention were we all outstanding.

The overall experience was beyond “above and beyond”, as it was obvious that Marco truly took a personal interest insuring that our trip was perfect, start to finish. And all at a cost that was a bargain. I couldn’t recommend Marco and Gusto Cycling more highly.

Fantastic memorable holiday. We were hesitant about continuing with the holiday during the pandemic but Italy certainly feels safer than the UK at the moment.

Marco provided constant communication and gave us reassurance along the way. We felt safe everywhere, being 3 women this is always a concern but not in Tuscany.

The app for the routes was easy to use and accurate. The scenery is spectacular and we live on the edge of the lake district but it still took our breath away. The e-bikes were top notch and in our opinion a must in 35 degree heat. They never got close to running out of battery and we did use turbo a bit!!! Everything went to plan and we will be doing this again. Thanks Marco you are a gent.

Two weeks later and we are all still talking about the trip. It was the first time riding in Tuscany for 9 of the 10 people in our group. Gusto Cycling (Marco) organized Rental Bikes, our hotel accommodations, luggage transportation, recommended routes, places to visit and restaurants to eat at. I would stay at everyone of the Hotels again!

Beautiful places to take your Spouse or Significant Other! San Gimignano, Montalcino, Rada and Pienza in Chianti … We stayed and dined in Castello delle Serre (a real castle in Rapolano) and the hospitality was fantastic. Marco went out of his way to join us for a day on the bikes and a dinner.
