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.

Fantastic, very easy to give the office. Your guy was informative and kept all our attention. Just note that this tour has access to the arena but not underneath. Recommend this tour. Thanks so much

Giulia was great with the kids, and while it was not an intellectually advanced tour (because it is kid focused), she was very engaging and clearly knows and enoys sharing Roman history. Thanks!

I live that it was at 8pm as we went on summer. The only bad thing is that I bought the Spanish tour and when we got there it was in english. Other than that it was a great.

A fantastic tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
