What people are saying about Lazio

What a fun and amazing tour this was! Our guide, Alberto, was so easy to talk to, and had lots of good information and stories to share. Riding the ebike was just fun - amazing how manageable the hills of Rome are with an assist on the bike! The catacombs were incredible to see - and the views from the property housing the catacombs were stunning. I don't think we would have seen any of this part of Rome had we not done this trip, this way. Even the ride from the river, through Rome to get to the Appian way was full of incredible sights. There was a great little restaurant where we stopped for lunch - delicious! Highly recommend this tour if you like bikes and want to see a lot of things in just 5 hours!!

I honestly couldn't recommend this more, we had 5 hours in Rome so booked a 3 hour tour... I can truthfully say, we saw Rome in 3 hours! we covered almost everything, our guide Amid was outstanding, very welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and took some fantastic shots for us. what a brilliant way to get to see the city!! Highly recommended

TopBike’s tour of the Appian Way with our guide Alessandro, was a highlight of our Italian trip. Safe, informative, and fun- Alessandro guided our small group through city streets, ancient roads, and country side with ease and humor. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome, and we would absolutely do it again.

Fantastic experience for our first night in Rome. Dario was our driver and from the first moment to the very last, was so enjoyable with him! He was engaging and interesting and very knowledgeable. He took us all over, showed us some sites that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Highly recommend!

It was very enjoyable and Glen was very knowledgeable about the area. It was a beautiful ride. Be sure you can keep up as we did zip along in some areas and it can get bumpy. It was really nice to get away from the crowds.
