Highly recommended! Mimmo was a super guide, brought the history of Rome with passion and enthusiasm. Everything went correctly from the reservation until the end of the ride. The follow-up by the agency was great, constant information about where and how and don't forget …. Pricey but definitely worth it for those who want to know Rome in a different way,

This was a wonderful way to see many of the major sites of the city. Our guide Alassadro chose a route through the city that had almost no car traffic, and he provided Roman history and interesting info interspersed through the day. He also provided a great lunch recommendation for after our tour!

We had a great tour along all kinds of highlights in Rome. Catharina explained it all well and in a pleasant way. Was also very relaxed in a group of 6. Was all in English, although we would get a Dutch guide, easy to follow

Marco was such a delight. He was very informed( born and raised in Rome) and so accommodating. It was our first night in Rome and he made is spectacular! Highly recommend!

Best guide Caterina! Excellent, interesting and very enjoyable way to learn about ancient Rome while bicycling through modern Rome!
