This is an excellent way to see Rome outside of the city center! Our guide, Arina, was exceptional! For us the catacombs & a heard of goats on the ancient Roman roadway were highlights! The only negative for our experience was an older couple who said they had not ridden a bike in 50 years. The poor couple had a terribly difficult time riding, navigating traffic, and staying with the group. Therefore, my recommendation would be - only do this if you are comfortable on a bicycle. You will be on roads with cars/trucks for a portion of the time.

Very fun and very educational. Klaus was upbeat and made us all feel safe. He was enthusiastic and educated about Roman history. Fun guy for sure! I was worried since I haven’t ridden a bike in 10 years but the e-bikes are easy to operate with little effort. Highly recommend!

This was a great tour - lots of interesting historical facts and cool sites to stop at outside of what you’d typically visit in the city or on other tours. The e-bikes were very easy to use and not physically demanding.

The trip was great. Bikes were in good condition, guide spoke English well enough and knew the area and history. The route itself was beautiful.

Very professional booking and a smooth drive to our destination.
