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.

Let me tell you this. I enjoyed this tour so much, I took it twice, and on the second time, I invited my friends who I met the night before. The guide, Polina, is such a sweetheart. As per her educational background and personal interest, she is very well informative and cultured about the place. She did the ice braking at the beginning and became friends with us at the end of the tour. Drinking is always there and you would enjoy your time. Worth of money and time!

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.

We enjoyed our tour of Trastavere. Our guide Greta was so knowledgeable and was able to give us the history of the ate.

Absolutely wonderful and the views from the top are outstanding we had a brilliant time well over 2 hrs
