The e-bike ride through Rome was the highlight of our month long vacation. We got to see all the tourist attractions, but also rode through the tiny streets and alleyways that we would have never had the time to see on foot. The stop for wine and charcuterie board was perfect. We sat with our riding group of 9 and got to know each other better. Seeing the trevi fountain all lit up at night was a highlight!

This tour was great. The first guide was great, and the tour of the colosseum at night was incredible - no people were there! Definitely worth seeing it at this time!

We had a wonderful experience. Alot of interesting information was share. Plenty of time for photos. The guide had great resources, friendly and did not rush us.

This was the finest tour you can get. Saw Rome from so many perspectives. Great food/wine to break up biking. A must do.

Very good friendly guide with great sense of humour and knowledge
