The Hampsten Tour (Cycling and Cooking) is a first rate experience. My wife enjoyed herself, although she only did a couple days of very easy cycling. There are numerous less expensive options, including cycling hotels such as the Belvedere. Lucca, Florence, and other locations in tuscany offer options for cycling with places for local hire and guides if you want them. I considered those types of options, but in the end I wanted a trip where the riding experience would be fun, there would be non-cycling activities for my wife to enjoy, and the scenery would be pleasing. The Hampsten trip checked all those boxes and more for us. You really cannot go wrong with one of his tours, but there are certainly less expensive options, but you get what you pay for with Andy and Elaine and it is well worth the cost.
