Wow! This was an amazing trip. It was much more than we expected and much longer than we expected. The electric bikes, made it easy to get around and see a lot. It turned out to be one of our favorite Excursions in Rome. Our tour guide, Klaas, was amazing as well. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out all of the interesting historical points along the way.

Just rent a hike instead


Jul 2023

Felt more like babysitting than a tour. The guide didn’t know very much information and at most sights just dropped us off to explore on our own. You’re better off renting a bike and going out on your own.

Response from Host, Jul 2023

Dear Parker,I was deeply sorry to see that your experience of the tour with us yesterday was entirely unsatisfactory. I understand how frustrating it is to do a tour with a guide that you feel is insufficiently prepared or insufficiently available to offer explanations. As mentioned in my personal email to you earlier, I will take this up with the guide to enquire into the reasons for this drastic shortfall and ensure it doesn't happen again. We set a high standard for our services, aiming for nothing less than an excellent experience for all our guests - in your case, it is evident that in an important way the experience fell short of our brand's guarantee for quality. Please accept our sincere apologies and amends for the inconvenience. We hope we will have the opportunity to have you with us again in the near future, for a tour that does justice to our habitual, high standard of quality. With my best regards,Stefan

E-bike adventure in Rome


Jul 2023

I want to start with how much we enjoyed our tour guide…darn it forgot his name but he is new to the company and only worked there 2 months!! His love of Rome, his hometown, and grasp of history was impressive and engaging. Other tour guides were skipping information and we had people asking us “what did he tell you about such and such?” We really got an comprehensive overview of historic Rome, catacombs and the aqueducts. Our only complaint is the tour is a bit too long. We biked 20 miles so keep that in mine. It was really 7 hours. We had 2 kids, 7 & 11, 2 in their 60’s and they actually did great. Everyone including the 30 year olds were more than done and a little cranky by the end. Recommend the tour company just scale it back a bit. Our weather was perfect but if you do this in the heat of August could be miserable! Bikes in excellent condition. We had water, good food stop (you pay) and we always felt safe, even in traffic. Our guide kept a close eye on everyone. Glad we did the tour but a bit much.

The highlight of our trip to Italy


Jul 2023

This tour was the highlight of our 8 day trip to Italy. Our two children loved the motorized bicycles, the aqueduct park, the Catacombs, and even the animal farm stop. For me the ride up the Old Appian Way was magical. We got out of the hubbub of the city and had a wonderful Sunday.

Family e-bike tour


Jun 2023

We really enjoyed this tour. We were a large group of 9 of mixed ages. We had no experience with e-bikes. Our guide, Francesco gave us great instructions & managed our group very well. The catacombs were unique (and cool temps given the very hot day we went). The aqueducts were also new for us. It was informative and fun. We had some choices for lunch (we bought on our own). We went with the local pizza. It was very good. There were places to refill water (which they provided & we also brought our own). Wear sun screen! Overall a great day!

Fantastic Appian Way bike tour


Jun 2023

Fantastic way to escape the crowds and learn about Rome’s catacombs and aqueducts along the important Appian Way. Our guide Simon was knowledgeable and fun and we had a great day! Our whole family loved this tour!

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Thanks for joining us, Jennifer! It's always amazing to leave the city center to discover the magic of the Appian Way and its history!Hope to have you ride with us again in the future!Valerio

Elija was a patient and amazing tour guide. I will request him as a tour guide.


Jun 2023

This tour looks difficult and challenging on paper but it is as easy as it can get. My non-bike wife and my 8 Yr old were able to accomplish tour no problem. My son and I were able to do the 6 hour tour unassisted with just the bike gears. The bikes are amazing and my wife wants one now. If your kiddo can manage gears and touch the ground, there is no need for a tandem bike. My 8 year old took a crush course in shifting gears at the beginning, by the end of the ride, my 8 Yr old was the front runner. Amazing tour with so much information. Strongly recommend if you want a crush course in History.

Special Family Experience in Rome


Jun 2023

Christian was amazing. He was kind and knowledgeable and attended to everyone’s safety. The parks and sites on the itinerary were a special treat that most visitors to Rome don’t see.

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Thanks for the review Adam! We agree that the Appian Way tour gives you the possibility to see a hidden side of Rome, and realize that Rome is more than just the city center! Hope to see you again!Valerio

Great Day! Great experience!


Jun 2023

We loved this experience! The e-bikes were a perfect way to get out of the city and explore. The stop at the catacombs was a great break and very interesting. The guide helped navigate the busy streets very well so we felt safe and were able to have fun the whole ride. The guide was also very knowledgeable and gave great info. I highly recommend!!

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Dear Karen,thank you for your review!Safety is our first priority and we are happy to read that you felt safe on the tour! Hope to have you riding with us again,Best regards,Simone

Great Appian Way bike tour


Jun 2023

Fun day! Elias was a great guide!! He was friendly, knowledgeable and conscious of everyone's safety. The bikes were top end and worked great. After lots of walking on other days of sightseeing, it was fun move around on bikes and see some less-touristy sites.

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Thank you for this review Robert! Indeed, being finally on a bike after days of pedestrian life can be a joy - especially with the breeze it comes with it on these hot days. Happy to know you enjoyed your tour with Elias!Stefan

Awesome, Amazing, Fun.


Jun 2023

The staff was very welcoming and helpful at check-in and made sure we all had proper equipment and knew how to use it. Our tour guide, Ximena, was amazing—knowledgeable, friendly, and caring, gave detailed explanations about what we could expect and what we were going to do. She made sure our safety always came first, and even took pictures for us. The tour did not disappoint either. The e-bikes were awesome and handled the cobblestone and the hills with no problems. The trip along the Appian way, aqueducts and tour of catacombs was breathtaking. We had all been to Rome before, but had never seen it quite like this!

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Hi Scott, the Appian Way and the aqueducts never fail to amaze those who visit it! We hope to have you ride with us again in the future!Valerio

Great day outside the city center


Jun 2023

Dario was an amazing guide. This was our favorite tour despite the fact that it was 98 degrees. It was nice to get outside of the city center for a bit. I highly recommend if you’re spending more than a few days in Rome.

Excellent family experience


Jun 2023

Chris and Lorenzo were fantastic guides. They kept our group safe in Rome traffic, and so much facinating information.The route was a good combination of city, ruins, history and nature.

Catacombs and more


Jun 2023

Someone recommended this tour and we loved it. Our guide Fabio was very knowledgeable and very friendly. It was nice to get away from the more touristy sites.

Best excursion of our trip


Jun 2023

Me and my husband did a three-week trip to Italy and Greece for our honeymoon. This was one of our favorite excursions of the trip. One of my coworkers recommended this tour with this company and we are so glad we listened and booked it. Our tour guide was fantastic, easy to understand, and informative. We started off with instructions for the bike and then rode through the city. Traffic can be very hectic in Rome but our guide made it easy to navigate. We stopped at many different sites so that we could rest and also learn some history which was great. About 1/3 of the way through the trip we stopped at the Catacombs. No photos are allowed in the Catacombs but the history surrounding them is amazing. Being able to go underground and see where ancient people were buried was a really unique experience. After the Catacombs tour, we got to ride through the countryside on the Appian Way Road which shows you a very different side of Rome. About halfway through the trip we stopped for lunch at a local pizza place that had ready to eat pizzas they would cut to your size preference and then charged by the weight. We both thought the food was good and reasonably priced. You get a bottle of water for the trip, but food is not included in the cost. Eventually, you reach the aqueducts and those were amazing to see. Having the e-bikes was great. My husband did not use the e-bike feature much, mostly with some of the hills, but me and several others on the tour used the feature a lot. It was nice being able to control how much assistance you want with the bike. I was worried we would be exhausted after a 6-hour bike ride but since we had the electric assistance, we felt pretty good afterwards. Both of us are pretty active normally and I take cycle classes several times a week at home, but I was not looking to be sore or exhausted on our honeymoon. While I would not recommend this excursion for those that are very out of shape, I do believe most people can do it since there is electric assistance on the bike. We enjoyed it so much we will be looking for this type of tour on other trips in the future.

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Thank you so much, Amanda! It's really, really nice to see such a detailed review about your experience and we are delighted to hear that everything seems to have been perfect for you!Thank you again, and we hope to see you back with us in the future!

Favorite tour in Rome


Jun 2023

This tour was an awesome way to see both ancient parts of Rome and also get a look into life in Rome outside of the downtown. Our guide provided great info about history and life in ancient times and was thoughtful about giving us breaks etc. The electric bikes work great and make it possible to enjoy even if you aren’t in top shape, but you will be getting some exercise on this so be prepared for that.

Loved it!


Jun 2023

What a fabulous way to see some of the unique and interesting sites around Rome! Alina and Felipe were wonderful and the bikes were great fun!

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Dear Rochelle,thank you for your kind words!We're glad that you enjoyed our way to visit the countryside, riding an electric-assisted bike!Wish you all the best,Kind Regards,Simone

Beautiful and interesting experience. A must!


Jun 2023

This was a very unique experience through a very beautiful part of the countryside. Aqueducts and Catacombs are an interesting part of Roman history. Highly recommend doing this tour!

Excellent, fun and, informative


Jun 2023

This was a great way to end out one week trip to Rome! Getting out of the city and experience nature, history and quiet!

Ancient Appian Way on state-of-the-art e-bikes with Stephen


Jun 2023

Stephen and the bike company were outstanding. They spent time to make sure we each had a bike we were comfortable with and a helmet that fit properly. They even found me a "girl" bike with no bar across. I had never ridden an e-bike and was pleasantly surprised that I could easily go up hills and keep up with my family. Stephen expertly guided us through busy Roman streets, to the parks on the outskirts of town. He obviously loves his job and made every effort to keep us informed of things to look out for on the path. He was attentive to me, as a non-expert biker, which I truly appreciated. He gave us plenty of time to visit an ancient ruined villa, the catacombs, the aqueducts, lunch and more. Everything was so beautiful - just like the photos in magazines. And being away from the busy city was just lovely - peaceful countryside, no crowds, farms, villas. I hope to do other bike tours soon!

Easy going bike trip to see some sights and a break from the noise of the city


Jun 2023

I loved this trip so much. The guide Linda, was friendly and easy going. The catacombs were very interesting and there was plenty of time at each site to enjoy the ambience. The route was peaceful and mostly away from busy roads. She kept a good eye on everyone and it was very safe. The electric bikes took ALL of the wfgort out of any hills etc. It lashed raining with thunder and lightening at times but we sheltered through the worst if it at the catacombs and managed quite well with careful and quick planning by Linda.We made a lunch stop at a local Pizza Shop and it was definetly the tastiest Pizza I have ever eaten hands down. The bike company supplied a bottle of water per person and there are small carrier bags on the front of the bike. The bikes are very easy to manage.There were plenty of stops and you can enjoy both the sights and the quiet countryside without feeling too tired. 6 hours seems long before you start, but it a was pretty easy ride and you don't need to be really fit to enjoy it.Overall, a great day despite the weather and I would recommend it highly.

Response from Host, Jun 2023

Dear Sean, Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive review!It's delightful to read you loved the trip with Linda and that, despite the weather, you had a great experience with us!
