What people are saying about Rome

This was a great way to see Rome at night! Our guide was very informative and made sure that our group remained safe on the busy streets and plazas. To see the highlights of Rome at night is a must! I would suggest at least intermediate bike handling skills as the streets are cobblestone and the plazas are extremely crowded with pedestrians. They had a good variety of bikes for all sizes and heights and they were all in great working order. I highly recommend this tour!!

Great way to taste food and drinks while learning a bit more about the culture, history and stories of Rome from an experienced local guide. Elisabeth Pettinari, our guide, was absolutely amazing by accommodating a bit of a last minute request as it was my wife birthday! Prosecco went down nicely with a "thchim thchim"!

Everyone was so so lovely. I booked my 3 year old in the class and he was made to feel very special and welcomed despite being the only child there. I would recommend this for everyone whatever your age. Thank you to the all those involved.

The tour is a brilliant experience. It is thorough and fun. The guides are very professional and everything we seen, with all the quirks and details would usually take a few days. I’d highly recommend it!

awesome chef, provided great details to pizza making..
