We saw an extraordinary amount of the city in what seemed like a very short time. Our guide Federico was low key but extremely knowledgable, full of facts and tips. The cycling was easy despite the quality of Roman drivers! I'd recommend this tour to just about anyone who can pedal a bike.

The guide was amazing at safely riding us through the narrow streets to see the highlights of Rome and he explained the history as well.

For a few days break in Rome this could not have been a better way of seeing the main areas in a short space of time-the bikes were so comfortable and in very good condition. It was disappointing when the tour came to an end-and we now know where the best ice cream and coffee shops are!! Excellent!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This tour was ideal for us as we were travelling with our 12yr old son and 16yr old daughter. It was really interesting for all of us. The cycling wasn't arduous and our guide was very well informed about all the sites we visited. It gave us a chance to see all the main tourist sites in a short space of time.

Great way to see the city. Michele took us through the tour and described the sites with a depth of understanding and a passion for the history. He was also just a really nice person so we felt very comfortable. We were in a group of 7 people which was perfect for staying flexible and getting all our questions in.
