A really fantastic introduction to Rome. Thorough, comprehensive: we saw the ‘big ticket’ items like trevi fountain, spanish steps, pantheon, borghese gardens etc and also a number of smaller, lesser known sights. Our guide, Chiara, was incredible. Friendly, engaging, very knowledgeable.

MARIO is awesome. Very attentive, he knows Rome like the back of his hand and allowed us to discover unusual places. We had a sensational day. He knows many anecdotes and knows how to interest everyone from the youngest to the oldest. His bikes are super comfortable!! I recommend it 100%

Martin was great - and the golf cart is a fabulous way to get hit many of the hit spots in a short time window. Awesome way to keep my 10 year old daughter engaged and interested.

Excellent, best thing about our trip to Rome! Our guide Martin was excellent and full of knowledge. A must do trip to discover parts of Rome you would never see.

Great food, and my guide was great as well. Very informative.
