Fantastic! One climb, the rest is downhill. For dutch a piece of cake used to bicycles, for others I cannot tell. No dangerous roads or crossings. We had to children in the group: no problem. The guide was very good.

We loved this bike ride, we had a lovely guide Matteao who explained so much to us about Rome and Italy, he was so patient with our many questions. The catacombs were interesting and the scenery was wonderful. We loved the stop at the country villa that made cheese. For someone who hasn't ridden a bike much, the 30km was a fairly easy ride. A pleasant change from the hussle and bustle of Rome. Would recommend this tour.

This was my favorite. Partially it was our guide, partially being in and out of the city, and partially the stop for cheese.. and wine! Not being in the city you could hear our guide very well and he made sure he was heard by everyone! Excellent job Manuel!(spelling). Thank you! WE WOULD DO THIS TOUR AGAIN!

This tour was a highlight of our recent trip to Rome for our family of four. Our guide was excellent, he looked after us well and at no time did we feel unsafe on the roads/paths. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his city. The bikes were in excellent condition. We thoroughly recommend this tour.
