Irene about their -Pisa to Firenze- selfguided bike tour...
We had a lovely time in Italy. The hotels you had chosen we liked were much. We also enjoyed the cycling “up and down” on quite roads J. We thought the bikes were a bit heavy, but that was the only thing we have that was not “100%” to our liking.
Thank you for a perfect holyday J

We had a wonderful week on the Vespa and we will return.
Thank you for all your help and the airport delivery and collectservice.
It is half the temperature of Italy back in England!

We found information on EcoRent while searching the web for mountain bikes for rental in Toscana. Service was excellent, and we had no problems with the Giant 29ers. We did approx 50/50 road/off-road and covered more than 12000 vertical meters in 8 days.

Daniele, We found Ecorent online whilst searching for a company to hire an older Vespa from. The advice from yourself to go for a Vespa 300 instead of a vinatge and small cc scooter was the best. The booking was easy and it was so good to find you waiting after our flight from UK to Pisa. The Vespa was in top condition and we were on our way around Tuscany (and to Bologna) in no time. Our holiday (Kathryn as pillion) was one the best holidays I have experienced as the Vespa allowed us to park anywhere. (No waiting in tourist buses, long walks etc etc)
Our favorite place was Lucca as the Vespa allowed us to park outside our hotel right in teh middle of the old town.
The helmets supplied by Ecorent were satisfactory too and sized well. We only carried one bag as luggage and that was easily fixed to small rear rack by cargo net. I would give Ecorent the best accolade possible for their whole set up. In 2014 we are riding an old Vespa GS150 from England, through France and into Italy. If it breaks down and cannot be fixed easily we shall give Ecorent a call to finish our holiday plans :-) See our photos. PS. It was sunny the whole time which also helped !!!

Three couples rented three scooters and spent a week in Tuscany. Lucca, San Gimignano, Montelcino, Cortona - what a great time. Eco-Rent and Daniele were very helpful and provided everything as promised. The scooters were nearly new and performed without a single issue. And 125cc was fine even for two-up riding. We rarely went over 60 kph, but that's the best way to see Italia! And only 4 or 5 euros a day to travel! Daniele picked up the scooters in Florence when we were through. All-in-all the best vacation ever!

Hallo Daniele, vielen Dank für ein super toll vorbereitetes Rennrad und eine hervorragende Abwicklung. Der Preis ist in Ordnung, das Rennrad war in einem ausgezeichneten Zustand und der Service einfach Klasse. Die vorherige Abfrage über das Geometrie-Formaular hat bestens funktioniert und ist eine prima Idee. Abholen, daraufsetzen, losfahren und dann die herrliche Toskana genießen! Jungs, ich werde euch gern weiter empfehlen.

I had a very experience with Eco Rent. Very good bicycle and very flexible/perfectionist service. Daniele delivered the bike at the airport after my arrival and had the bike tuned to my measures. Also the return delivery at a hotel near Pisa station was very practical. If you are looking for a high quality bike and flexible service for a reasonable price I can recommend Eco Rent if you want in the Tuscany region or around.

Daniele picked us up at the Pisa airport exactly on time and had our bikes and panniers completely ready and in great condition. He took the time to review the map we had downloaded from mapmyride.com and made a few recommendations. With the rainy weather and our lack of rain gear, he even drove us that Sunday afternoon to a sports store to pick up a cycling poncho and energy bars! (We had just flown in that am from Canada...). Daniele did our last minute measurements, gave us directions to start our journey (Fauglia, Lari, Cascianna Alta, Calci) and we were off to an amazing journey. Upon our return, he even helped us get to the bus station (his Dad!!) and purchase tickets to Pisa train station to start our hiking/kayaking journey of Cinque Terre! 5 star service for EcoRent!

Rented a Giant TCR road bike, while on holiday in Tuscany. When ordering they asked me for my measurements. So when I collected the bike it was already setup almost perfectly for me. The bike was in perfect condition, and I was supplied with a saddle bag with multi-tool and inner tubes. I had a great few days cycling in Tuscany! One thing to be aware of is that Google Maps, as of this writing, shows the wrong location! Google shows them being in Navacchio, when actually they're ~1km further down the road toward San Benedetto / Cascina - across from the petrol station!

From Daniele: GUEST'S MAIL ABOUT THEIR TRIP
We are now back home in Trondheim, almost back to the winter...
You really set up some great trips for us, but unfortunately not all of us were really fit for some of the trips ;)
The main thing though is that the accommodations, both in Camaiore and in Pisa was superb; you need to tell both the hostess and the host that. We all travel a lot around the world (except from my wife Bente) and it is rare to find such kindly people. This of course includes you Daniele.
On our way home we where already discussing next years trip. I am quite sure there will be some changes to the tour, but we will still prefer to use your expertise.
Due to the fact that we have different skills and fitness, we probably are going to find our own routes for the next trip, but we need your bikes (which always seems to be great). Another issue is that your services are great; you know the right places to stay, transfers was always on time to pick us up and bring us back to the airport; which is not always what we experience.
So; Thank You Daniele for another great time in Toscana, we will be back!!!

I rented a Giant Carbon Fiber Road Bike in September of 2012. I had a great experience with ECORENT. While at home they sent me a form to measure critical elements of my bike frame so that I would get one that fit. They met me at the Pisa airport with the bike along with the typical things I would need, pump, extra tubes, tool kit etc. It was very quick and easy. The bike was in top condition, fit and performed great during my week of riding (about 350 miles). I would definitely rent from them again.

We rented a 125 maxi scooter in July 2012 - we picked it up at Pisa airport when we landed, stuck our luggage under the seat and scooted off around Tuscany.
Daniele was really helpful, and brought along an English translator to our airport pick up.
The scooter was flawless, and was by far the best way to see the country - whether nipping from village to village in the mountains or negotiating the traffic of Florence. No congestion charges, free parking and cheap fuel.
On our last day, Daniele gave us a variety of options for dropping the scooter off, in the end we just parked it up at the airport, popped the keys in the boot and got on our plane home, sorry to say goodbye to it!
We would recommend ecorent to anyone that wants to see Italy the Italian way.

Sorry needed to add a few more things- we found out about Eco-Rent through our friends Braden & Brian who did the same trip a few years ago. The rental itself was really smooth! We brought our own seats but Daniele gave me an extra pad for mine and the bikes were fantastic. 24 speeds made it really easy to get up some of the giant hills and they were perfect hybrids for the trip! Eco-rent helped coordinate everything before we left - picking us up from the airport, handling all of our luggage transfers, booking our accommodation (in AMAZING places!), and delivered the bikes to us on time and just as described!
I honestly would recommend you take this trip so so much!

Our bike tour through Tuscany with Daniele and Eco Rent was completely incredible. My fiance and I did a 7 day tour starting in Calci and made our way through Volterra, Pomerance, Cassiana Terme, and so many other villages and towns. The villages were my favorite- so many medieval castles and churches to explore. My fiance loved the open country roads with hay stacks, sunflower farms, and rolling vineyards for miles. The tour was absolutely incredible. Each morning we would wake up and follow our map and there was an accompanying guide book that let us know what adventures we could have that day - what to see and get excited for. I would recommend not going in July as it was about 88 degrees F every day and was a bit too hot for me. Luckily Daniele came to my rescue twice and picked me up in the van when I just couldn't bike any more.
I would 100% recommend this tour and company for a completely amazing and memorable adventure!

We have spent 5 magnificent days (5 - 9th May 2012) in the area of Mugello, driving our two vespa's. These were delivered and picked up at the airport of Firenze. Thank you Daniele for the correct service! We would like to recommend ECORENT for vespa rental.

Two Scandinavian women´s cycling dreams came true in Pisa, Tuscany. Ecorent´s site was the first one on the list when searching for road bike rentals. We found the site very easy to use and immediately got reply. We want to give a special thanks to Daniele of his great service. His contribution was a remarkable factor in our cycling holiday. We did self guided tours around the Tuscany with the great help on Daniele´s route planning. I can truly recommend this company to every one and we will be back for sure. There is still so more roads to cycle in Tuscany!

Fantastic service from Daniele. I called last minute before a holiday and the service was first class. Daniele, delivered the bike as agreed ( in a very secluded villa) and arranged pick up at a time to suit me.
The Giant bike was clean and worked perfectly ( gears indexed, brakes news, tire pressure perfect). I'd taken my own pedals and Daniele even lent me a track pump.
Highly recommended !

Thanks to Daniele's excellent service, we landed at Pisa airport may 13 2011 at 12:00 and less then one hr later we took off on our Vespa's for a 4 day discovery of Tuscany. The vespa proved to be an excellent way to enjoy the landscapes and nature while still having sufficient 'range'.
We will do this again (plenty of other sites to explore)

Thanks for the perfect service you provided us last August! Your Vespa's and map with directions made our holiday one not to forget. We will definitely come back one day!
