A fantastic experience with great guides to ensure an enjoyable and fun bike ride whilst visiting various locations around Rome. A fun and informative experience. There was not one negative aspect of the tour. You experience a lot of Rome without having to travel all the main roads. The guides show you Rome utilising a lot of back streets with lots of hidden gems. The bikes make it easy to get around and you are never left alone. The group stays together from start to finish. Well recommended.

If you don’t want to visit Rome in deph but still want to get the most out of it, this is the tour for you. You drove right at the manument or site with the car, the driver shows you and tells you the story about it, if you go inside the building(for ex colisseum), you don’t waste time waiting, everything is arranged so you don’t wait in line. Special request were granted(pizza and gelatto) in the best places. Really, the best tour you can get if you don’t like lines and wait time

This tour allows you to get the most out of your day and you get to see a lot more than Colosseum and Vatican City.
