    As seen on Trip Advisor: This was truly the trip of a lifetime for my husband and I. We found out about Mark through a friend of a friend, and it was an amazing experience. We rented bikes through Mark, which he fit perfectly to our bodies- making for a very comfortable ride. Not only is Mark kind, but he knows the most beautiful rides and can customize them for you. We always felt safe under his care– which is so important because the roads and driving in Italy are so vastly different from the states. If we wanted a more challenging or easier day, he could quickly accommodate that too. We loved enjoying macchiato and crossiants with him on the rides. the views were unbelieveable and we really loved our pasta and wine for dinner after getting a great ride in! We were so thankful to meet him and would highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to experience the Tuscan countryside (which I think everyone should!). Thank you Mark!

    As seen on Trip Advisor: We would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who enjoys cycling and wants to get off the beaten track to see the real peace and beauty of the Tuscan countryside. Mark showed us a fantastic route through roads lined with olive groves and vineyards – fabulous day! My husband is a keen cyclist and Mark took us on a fun and challenging route. I cheated as I have an electric assist bike, so I could keep up but Mark constantly kept a check that the pace was right for everybody and there was no pressure. This really is a must do for anyone visiting the area – the best day of our holiday so far! Thank you

    As seen on Trip Advisor: Riding with Mark Collins and his Riding with Cosimo Tour Service has been a highlight of my Tuscan vacations for the past 6 years. His knowledge of the area surrounding Florence has given my husband and I the best cycling experiences in and out of the city. Mark keeps finding new places to ride so we can look forward to new adventures into the future. I highly recommend Mark!

    As seen on Trip Advisor:What a terrific find we stumbled upon! A distant family friend hooked us up with Mark “Cosimo”‘s guided biking service. What a difference it made in our experience. After emailing briefly with Mark about our desire to view the Giro and experience one of the climbs he created a custom route that allowed us to see Tuscany and the race. 65 Miles, 5000 vertical feet and an experience we will never forget! The ride with Mark was by far the highlight of our 14 day trip to Italy. I would recommend Mark’s service for anyone wanting to experience Tuscany on a bike worry free. There are so many winding roads and little knowns sites to see with out him we would have missed this and been focused completely on our map. With him we just followed his lead. He biked to our level and was happy to stop for coffee whenever I needed it! Coffee seems to be the Italians version of “Gu”. Thanks for an amazing ride Mark! Visited May 2013
