We had a spectacular day with Alessio on our E-bike tour. Alessio went above and beyond with his time and knowledge of the city and surrounding areas. We were able to see so much more of the city than we thought was possible on a 5-hour bike tour. Alessio was a very generous, knowledgeable and welcoming guide who personalises the experience to the group he is with. We saw a great mix of interesting sites and historical locations. We ticked off so much from our Rome bucketlist like the keyhole view of St Peters Basillica, the Baths of Caracalla, the Aquaduct park, the Appian Way and the Mouth of Truth. If you are staying in Rome for a short amount of time, this is the perfect experience - you learn and see so much of the city and the surrounding areas. The bikes were comfortable and easy to use - a perfect break after lots of walking. Thank you Alessio for a great day!

Our guide was excellent! I enjoyed seeing the Appian Way and doing something fun and different in Rome. My only complaint is that it was not a leisurely bike ride like I was expecting-it was rough and muddy. It had rained a lot the day before. As long as you're prepared to get your shoes a little dirty and for the bumps, you'll enjoy this tour!

What a great way to see the city and paths less traveled by most tourists. The ride was easy and can be done by anyone who can at least ride a bike. The guide was amazing, fun, smart, and extremely knowledgeable about the history and locations we went. I could not recommend this more highly and my wife today said - that’s been my favorite “tour” we have done, I Loved it!!
