This was a 2-part walking tour consisting of a morning and afternoon sessions. Our morning/Colosseum part of the tour was guided by Giuseppe. He was very knowledgeable and informative. I loved his sense or humor too! We learned so much! I was hoping we would get him for the afternoon session as well but he was committed to another tour. Eddy met us at the foot of the Spanish Steps and he did not disappoint! He was very entertaining and passionate about Rome! Both guides were such a pleasure. The tour was perfect too as you get to see the best of Rome, all by walking!

David and Emily were very friendly and knowledgeable and showed us parts of Rome we had not seen in other trips. They avoided the touristy stuff and gave us a lot of information. We would highly recommend a Vespa tour and would do it again!

We had a great time with the team, and saw a perspective of Rome we would never have got on our own. We saw so much in 3 hours it was an great way to get to see Rome in a single activity. Very safe and well organised. Happy to recommend.

Excellent tour, Max was a very good guide, in which we visited the hidden places of Rome, that only a local can know, I loved everything!
