“If you’re interested in a bicycle trip that offers extended, up-close contact with the region’s countryside, try DuVine Adventures’ six-day Tuscany Bicycle Tour.

Peter Greenberg was asked: “Can you recommend a reputable and reliable travel company that can set up a tour of the Tuscan wine country? There are companies that say they do this type of tour, but they all have complaints lodged against them. How can we avoid being “duped” by disreputable agents or agencies?”

Peter Greenberg replied: “If you’re interested in a bicycle trip that offers extended, up-close contact with the region’s countryside, try DuVine Adventures’ six-day Tuscany Bicycle Tour. The tour is physically challenging but rewards you throughout, with several wine tastings.”
