Bruno our guide was very good and made the tour very interesting. Some good cycling along with interesting sights and a nice cheese, wine and bread stopover at the farm made for a good day.
I'm sorry I don't remember our guide's name but he was very nice and informative. It was so enjoyable to be out in the country and away from the noise and crowds of the city. It's amazing how quickly we were out of the city. (We did this excursion early on a Sunday morning so there was very little traffic leaving the city in the morning. Nice!) I enjoyed the catacomb tour and thought the Appian Way was beautiful. It was cool to stop under the intact portion of the aqueduct. The cheese and wine break was quite welcome. We'd worked up an appetite by then. One comment would be to warn folks that the ride was not for beginners. I don't ride mountain trails normally and there was some short single track spots where it was tricky for a non-mountain biker like myself. All in all, it was a great tour.
This your was a nice break from the city! Totally worth our time!
Great bikes, great guide, lots to see, we even had wine and cheese just before the end of the tour.
This tour will linger as the sweetest memory of my stay in Rome! Francesco was COOL and quite knowledgable, he dissected lots of archaeological sites along the way that would have been missed if I had rented the bike on my own. A teammate had a flat tire. Francesco had it fixed in no time. The 6 hour ride was a bliss, never felt rushed and throughly enjoyed the ride. Bikes are fabulous. The Appian way extends beyond 2300 years of history, echoes and glory. Don't miss it!
Don't think twice. Just go for it :)
I enjoyed this tour a lot. Great to get out of the city and into the countryside. The tour guide was very knowledgable and seemed to enjoy himself as much as we did. I reccommend doing this tour!
One of the best tour I've been on. Francesco was an wonderful guide. Always conscious of safety but also keeps the tour moving along. He knows a lot and passes it along in understandable portions. He's well traveled and keeps the conversation going with the whole group so everyone feels included. This tour definitely gets you out of the tourist crush to what for me were the most impressive ruins along the Appian Way. Amazing that the original surface is still in amazing shape though you don't want to ride on it for long. Great farm visit with wine and cheese with the sheep being milked behind you while you eat.
Great way to see a different aspect of Rome. We had a knowledegable friendly and informative guide named Andrea who safely guided us for 6 hours, particularly through some heavy traffic in Rome
An excellent tour of the parklands on the outskirts of Rome. Our guide Marco was most informative and caring, being sure to take care of the varying cycling abilities in our group.
Outstanding. Intelligent, knowledgeable and kind guides. Great bikes and amazing trip, loved it!
The people at the bike shop were extremely helpful and welcoming. Our guide, Daniele, was excellent. He took seriously his responsibility to highlight the history and information along the way while conscientiously taking every measure to ensure safety and enjoyment of all the riders. We would highly recommend this tour!
This tour covers so much more than we ever expected. The aqueducts are beyond amazing. The engineering is mind-boggling. We covered so much territory outside Rome and were really able to enjoy the countryside. The farm is lovely and a nice respite. I would say you would need to be fair shape to keep up, as there are a few hills, but the guide stops often to narrate long the way. Highly, highly recommend!
I am SO glad that my friend and I did this bike tour! It was the most incredible experience! The staff was very helpful, and Andrea our tour guide was fabulous! I was worried that it would be too strenuous, but we stopped a lot for breaks, water, and to see sites. Definitely 120% worth it! This is a MUST for a visit to Rome.
The riding was easy with plenty of stops. Water was provided and could be replenished throughout. Our guide was personable, warm and friendly with a great depth of knowledge on Ancient Rome. The bikes and equipment were in excellent condition. The trip covers Ancient Aquaducts, The Catacombs and the site of the Ancient Baths. We also had time for Cheese and Wine. Great value. Thank you.
Great ride, good guide and fun people ! Recommened to anyone who really knows how to ride.
The Appian Way bike tour was absolutely fantastic. The best experience of our whole trip. Emmanuel, our guide, was knowledgeable and enthusiatic. It was wonderful to experience the 'open air museum' as Emmanuel descibed it. Thanks again, Darren and Sian
Our tourguide Ricardo gave us a glimpse of Rome from ancient to modern times. The cycle itself was most enjoyable, especially when we had left the city behind us. The stop at the sheep farm was a great break, and it was great to speak to the other members of the tour. But I can't stress highly enough how much our tourguide Ricardo added to the day...the stories he told, and his knowledge of the place and events that happened had us spellbound. Thanks.
Bruno was a patient and knowledgable guide who took us to some wonderful places. This is a great way to see some of the Roman countryside!
This tour was wonderful! The bike office is conveniently located, the bikes in great shape, the helmets clean, and check-in was trouble-free. We were quickly on our way. Our guide, Emanuelle, took great care of us. He got us through the short stretch of crazy Roman streets safely. Once out to the park area, we stopped often as he explained points of interest and we took tons of pictures. He was an absolute delight. And it is beautiful out there. The wine and cheese stop at a working farm was even more delicious than anticipated. Really enjoyed all of it.
Great day out with Bruno; our guide. If you only have time for one ride in Rome, this is it. Good bikes to boot!
This trip was awesome! Our guide, Emmanuel, was very knowledgeable and passionate. The experience was a nice complement to the history and tours of the city center.
Since returning from Rome, I've been describing my bike tour of the Appian Way and recommending Topbike Rental and Tours to everyone. Frederico is a fantastic, knowledgeable, and personable guide who made the ride a great, memorable, and WAY cool experience.
An unforgettable way to see the city. The guide was excellent and so were my fellow travelers. 100% worth it. Thank you!
