What can I say except my Vespa tour was honestly one of the best experiences of my life! Simone made the entire tour so magical by taking me to the most beautiful places in Rome. I was very apprehensive about what to expect at first, as I was travelling the city alone. But he made me feel safe the entire way around and was such a brilliant guide for the evening. Made me laugh a lot and it felt like I was travelling with a friend! He was so knowledgeable about Rome and I learnt a lot. Nothing felt rushed and he made sure I did everything I wanted to do and MORE! I will never forget this experience and I would recommend this tour to absolutely everyone.

If you don’t want to visit Rome in deph but still want to get the most out of it, this is the tour for you. You drove right at the manument or site with the car, the driver shows you and tells you the story about it, if you go inside the building(for ex colisseum), you don’t waste time waiting, everything is arranged so you don’t wait in line. Special request were granted(pizza and gelatto) in the best places. Really, the best tour you can get if you don’t like lines and wait time

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!
