This was a great tour. It is an excellent tour that takes you along the Appian Way, Catacombs, and Roman countryside/ruins. This tour lets you see much more of the Appian Way than you would see walking on your own or on a bus tour. You ride out of lively Rome and into the outskirts of the city. The tour takes you along a route that allows you to see and learn about the history of ancient Rome. When you reach the Appian Way and ride through Rome's parks to see the ruins and aqueducts, it feels like you are in the Roman countryside, but in reality you are only miles from the Colosseum and Forum, (which you will pass by on the way back to the bike store). There is plenty of time for photo breaks and to drink water from Rome's multiple fountains along the route. There is also a nice pit stop for wine and cheese. I highly recommend the 6 hour tour that goes to the catacombs. It is well worth it. If you are looking for a great experience and do not mind the excercise (it is not that strenuous), and are also seeking a tour that goes beyond the lifeless bus tours, this is for you.
This is the tour you want to take when going on a night tour of Paris. My guide had a keen sense of humor. The tour is a wonderful way to learn about the hidden history and legends of Paris. Yes, there are ghost stories and/or eternal legends, but they are mixed into the history of Paris and France. I took both tours offered by Viator and felt I learned much more on this tour. Both tours cover some of the same tales although they diverge at certain points. if you want the visceral take the other tour, although I thought the most horrific story could be heard on this tour. I do not want to give away what the guide says or does, but if you are looking for a walking tour of central Paris at night where you will learn something about Paris, this is the tour for you.
