    Alessandro, the guide was absolutely amazing. He was extremely personable and informative. The tour was tremendously fun, very easy on the ebike (especially for myself who hadn’t ridden a bike in 4+ years). I would suggest this tour to anyone who wanted an activity in Rome that would take you off the normal paths. It’s a great way to spend 6 hours.

    This was our favorite moment in Rome - hands down. Glenn was a really great guide, knowledgeable lovely guy and we really enjoyed sharing this time with him. The e bikes were really easy to ride, intuitive and I loved the 'assist' for the (few) hills. It makes this tour accessible to most all levels of riders! The close up view of the aqueducts, the open air and gorgeous countryside just outside Rome... Super fun and relaxing and informative. Highly recommended.

The bike tour was outstanding. All our expectations came through, not in the least thanks to our great guide! It is just incredible to see the landscape turn green after only 10’ … Greet nature combined with pure history: riding on the Via Appia was pure magic. We felt like Livia and Augustus- or at least their best friends ! Whenever in Rome, this is the nr 1 experience.

With a special thanks to our guide Jos , who made from this trip a memory to never forget .

This was one of the best tours we made, not only in Rome but via getyourguide so far.
