Our guide for the day was Alex. He made us feel very relaxed and ensured that we were well informed during the tour. He was extremely confident and did his utmost to ensure we were safe when cycling on the roads. A fantastic experience enjoyed by my son and myself. Thank you Alex.

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!
