You HAVE to take this tour! I have visited Rome several times and did the same old tours and I learned more and had more fun on the vespa tour then any time prior. We had the most knowledgeable, fun and cutest guide(I can say that because I'm old) ever; you must request Cesare. He showed us things and answered all of our questions. He let us shop the local paintings and just enjoy our surroundings instead of hustling us through like cattle. He bought us some ice cream and a drink of our choosing. I was so impressed with him I decided that I am going to cancel my tour bookings this summer and book with him. Not only is he amazing but his mom is as well, it is family owned which makes it even better. She will contact you on locations, which they are very flexible, and answer any questions that you may have.

Great way to spend a morning. Took us to see many of Rome's less well known but no less worh seeing sites. Places you wouldn't normally go but really should. Roberto was a knowledgeable and engaging guide, who loves Rome. I really do recommend seeing Rome by vespa.

It has been a great success! We have seen and learned a lot about Rome thanks to our guides, Stefano and Cuna. And the very cool sidecar vespas.

This was such a fun tour and the perfect way to end our trip! Enrico was amazing and helped her in and out at each stop.

Brilliant tour with a very knowledgeable and fun guide. A great way to see the city!
