A friend and I were staying in Rome for just two days, so we chose this tour to get our bearings and see as much as we could. Our guide, Frederico, went out of his way to give us a totally unique, honest and informative experience of the city. It really made our trip. Thanks so much!
Absolutely fabulous experience. A small group (just two riders plus the guide), we got a great look at the city. The spots we stopped (for coffee and later pizza) were top notch, and ones that I returned to on my own. This tour made my trip!
I ride a road bike at home, so this was not a stretch. If you haven't ridden in 15 years, this is a pretty technical undertaking. It's not the up- and down-hill that challenge -- although there are hills -- it's the crowds. (I chose a touring bike with an electronic battery "assist", so going uphill was easy.)
Unlike a walking tour, where you are listening to a guide (usually through a headset) while you walk, on this biking tour you ride for awhile, then stop and listen to explanation.
This tour made my trip!
Great way to experience Rome. Aside from wonderful panoramic views of Rome, we took small alley ways into the various sections. We saw sights in Trastevere, toured the Pantheon, and went to the Vatican City. Caution: Some were on electric bikes that lurched forward when the rider tried to slow.
Our Panoramic tour of Rome was outstanding! Gederico the guide was a fount of knowledge and was very considerate of all levels of riders in our group. We learned so much on this tour and saw intimate sights of Rome that normal tours on buses cannot see. I cannot recommend this tour enough and it is enjoyable for all level of riders. Next time we are in Rome we will do a different tour and request Gederico to lead us.
Highly recommend doing this tour. Cycling is not hard but gives you a great view of Rome from many places. Loved cycling thru many piazzas and areas we would not have found..
Even in the rain this was a highlight of our trip to Rome. Finally we were taken to places off the beaten track. Our guide Matteo had insightful commentary at each sight.
We recently joined Bruno on the Panoramic Bike Tour of Rome. Bruno was a great guide providing us with pointers on how to safely navigate traffic in Rome as well as having great knowledge of what he was showing us. We really enjoyed our time and wouldn't hesitate in taking another trip with Top Bike Rental should the occasion arise. We would recommend these tours to others :)
What a great way to see the sights of Rome. We ride a lot and have ridden in other parts of Italy but were a little hesitant to ride in Rome so I suggested to my husband that we take this tour. It was raining on the day we booked and we were given the option of riding, booking another day or getting a refund. As we had a week in Rome we decided to book another day. While we don't mind riding in the rain we wanted to be able to capture some good photographs. The tour was mostly on quiet streets or pedestrian only streets. We had two guides looking after us, stopping traffic when we needed to cross a busy street. The pace was easy, allowing for beginners and the tour guides were fun and informative. I am so glad we took this tour and would highly recommend it for those who like to ride.
This was probably one of the best tours i did in Rome. You got to see many places from all different angles. the view up on top of the hill overlooking the city was amazing. The tour guides are very knowledgable and have fun at the same time. definitely recommend.
fabulous experience and a great way to see an overview of the city. Tour guide was exceptional and the staff at the bike shop were helpful and friendly.
The tour was wonderful and a must do for anyone visiting Rome. The tour provided a good overall view of Rome. The bikes were in excellent condition. The tour visited many of the popular tourist sites plus many sites that are not visited normally by tourists but still very interesting. Lorenzo's knowledge of Roman history and architecture was exceptional.
This was a great experience with an informative and sympathetic guide, which gave us a great overview of the city on our first day from a number of different vantage points. The bikes were comfortable and the tour is highly recommended.
Absolutely great! Georgia was an incredible guide . It was fun and a wonderful way to experience Rome
This bike tour is absolutely great! Don't worry if you're a little nervous as the pace is slow and the guide keeps a regular check on everyone. I'd say I'm quite confident on a bike but dread climbing hills. The bikes are great - using the gears make it an easy ride to the top. My friend was a little shaky on the bike but he absolutely loved it. The groups are small and you avoid traffic and busy places for the most part. We spent our last afternoon in Rome doing this tour and I must say this is the perfect way to see Rome as you visit a lot of the main attractions!
This bike trip is sensation!!!! We have done several bike trips now in Europe and with Simona as our guide it was truely first rate. Apart from visiting most of the main sites, it gave us a wonderful overview and perspective of the big city. No doubt this bike tour went a long way to making Rome the highlight of our European trip. I highly recommend this trip to every one. P.S. just don't wear jeans as one Wally did and then whinged!!!! There is one born every minute hey.
This tour was fantastic. The time goes by faster than expected and the bike ride is not bad at all. We went all over the city and saw great views from all angles. I was very happy with this tour and Bruno, the tour guide was very friendly and fun. He made the ride enjoyable for us.
incredible would recommend to everyone great guide and sights to see.
Excellent way to se lots of sights in Rome. Well worth it and highly recommended. Our tour guide Georgia was great.
This tour made our holiday so much more special as we managed to see so much more of Rome and our guide was very informative. We were very lucky to have her to ourselves as we were the only ones cycling that afternoon. The one or two hills are well worth the unbeatable views of Rome. We would fully recommend this tour!
Our tour leader provided an outstanding experience. It's hard to say which of the two bike tours I did with this firm was my favorite. Our guide knows his history, and picks low traffic routes also. For people who want to have an active vacation in Rome and to come away with more in-depth knowledge of many monuments, churches, historic sites, and the culture, book this tour.
The bike tour was the highlight of my Rome visit. Guide showed pics from a book on ancient Rome as we viewed the current look of the site from our bikes. Learned more about Rome in 4.5 hours than I thought possible. Great behind the scenes stuff that most tourists will never see without an insider like the guide we had. Top notch 27 speed comfortable mountain bikes, like new with great components and excellent disk brakes. Guide was very careful and I felt safe and comfortable. Rode mostly small roads, alleys and quiet places, stopped at a cool pub for a break and a beer. Had time to go inside many sites too. Walked through gardens. Get away from the crowd - you won't forget this tour. John Russell, Austin, TX
One of the greatest tours I've ever experienced. If you are worried about the safety - don't. Rome might be hectic but the drivers are usually attentive and the tour guide is very professional. The best thing to do is to take this tour at the beginning of your trip to Rome to have a nice and clear idea about the eternal city.
Had a wonderful time on this scenic tour of Rome. The hills were a little challenging, especially with the temperatures over 100 F, but we had a blast and the views were spectacular. I highly recommend this tour if you are comfortable climbing hills and riding with street traffic. Our guide was top notch.
