Daniele was an excellent host. I got an extensive tour with a congenial and knowledgeable guide. He confirmed our tour the day before and showed up on time. He put a lot of thought into the routes we took fir the greatest visual impact, and planned the route so that the tour would end up as close to my hotel as possible. He had a lot of recommendations for other things to do in Rome, and in Italy. Highly recommend Daniele as a tour guide.

This was a wonderful way to see many of the major sites of the city. Our guide Alassadro chose a route through the city that had almost no car traffic, and he provided Roman history and interesting info interspersed through the day. He also provided a great lunch recommendation for after our tour!

We had a great tour along all kinds of highlights in Rome. Catharina explained it all well and in a pleasant way. Was also very relaxed in a group of 6. Was all in English, although we would get a Dutch guide, easy to follow

Best guide Caterina! Excellent, interesting and very enjoyable way to learn about ancient Rome while bicycling through modern Rome!

Super tour. Lots of local food, good wines and beer, and fun.
