Simone was a perfect guide! We could not have asked for a better trip/guide. Simone was professional, thoughtful, careful and knowledgeable. It was obvious he enjoyed what he was doing and that translated into our enjoyment. Equipment was top of the line. Safety was primary. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone who is comfortable riding a bike on busy sidewalks, intersections and among pedestrians. This is not to say the tour took us on dangerous locations (it did not), but common sense dictates that a person should be comfortable in these types of situations and should consider that before booking this trip. Overall, one of the highlights of our visit to Europe.
Great opportunity to get an overview of Rome. Easy, slow bike tour. Guides were informative and very nice. Highly recommend
I bought this excursion as a birthday present for my Daughter and her boyfriend. They were absolutely over the moon with the whole thing. The Italian English speaking guide really impressed them with his local anecdotes, Jokes and tips. Not only did they see everything they wanted they saw just about everything there was worth seeing. He also saved them money by suggesting where and where not to buy every day items and tourist momentos. It was the very first thing they did on their trip and it set them up nicely for the rest of their stay as they had completely established their bearings. Well done Viator we've all downloaded your App for future use.
We, my 15 years old son Victor and I, loved the tour very very much! Our guide, an art historian was marvellous! He told a lot abouth the city and showed us beautiful places, but also small things with a story. The bikes were fantastic and the biking went very well. Angelo (?) was very careful. I can recommend the tour to everybody who has cycled more. Judith de Jong
Had a great time on this tour. The guides broke the group into two (6 people in each group) which made it intimate and manageable. Our guide was fantastic. He took great care checking us constantly to make sure we were managing the traffic and keeping up. He was engaging, informative and caring.thoroughly recommend this tour.
Great way to see the city. Great guides- always felt safe travelling throughout. Great for kids (7 and 12)
WE had an incredible fun riding through Rome on our bike tour. Our tour guide Francesco (I think I got it correct) was great, always had interesting information about the history of Rome. I would highly recommend this tour as it was one of my favorite while on our trip to Italy.
The bikes were in great shape, very easy to ride for anyone. We got to see places that we probably would never discover on our own.
Thoroughly enjoyed our bike trip around Rome excellent bikes excellent guide excellent value for money great way to familiarise yourself with this beautiful city plus only ONE small hill to cycle up bonus !
This bike tour was the highlight of our stay in Rome. We pedaled around the back streets until we suddenly emerged at one spectacular site or another. A great way to not only see the city's highlights but also the everyday life of today's Romans. We stopped often at points of interest so it wasn't a difficult ride. For the most part we avoided major streets except for a few crossings. The guide (sorry, I forgot his name) was very pleasant and knowledgeable and he kept the pace to an enjoyable level. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who can ride a bike.
Really enjoyed being shown around Rome by bike. Loved going down wee streets where you probably wouldn't go. Ideally it is best to do it on the 1st day you are there, then you can picture where things are. Guide was aware of your safety and very informative. He suggested a coffee place to have a coffee and it was the best and cheapest coffee we had while in Rome.
I loved the uniqueness of this tour. The bike company was top notch and made you feel welcome the moment you arrived. They were well organized and helpful and put you at ease . They made sure the group introduced ourselves to each other and the small group dynamic was great. Our leader was fantastic and very knowledgable and really knew how to get us safely around Rome. It was fun seeing all the highlights of Rome from new approaches and angles. The equipment was great and was easy to adapt to which sometimes is a challenge when it isn't your own bike. Great fun and so unique. I highly recommend. Great Value for money. There is a great little spot for capucinno right around the corner. Easy to get to by subway or taxi .
Our guide was outstanding. He had a PhD in history and was extremely knowledgeable of all the monuments, providing lots of information and insights. He was very careful maneuvering our group through the busy streets, and luckily, most of the travel was on closed streets or side streets. Taking the tour on Sunday morning is good because the traffic is less heavy. The last two hours of the tour was in the rain, but the tour company provided ponchos and we still had a very enjoyable tour. I highly recommend doing this tour on your first or second day as it will help you understand where all the monuments are and help you determine which ones you want to spend more time at.
Man was this fun! You get to take a lot of back streets, so traffic is only occasionally a hassle. But our guides kept us safe. Understand it is four hours long, but there are frequent stops, so anyone who can ride a bike should do okay. You do not stop and go into many of the sights, but you sure get a different perspective. Our guide really wanted us to ask a lot of questions. He had a tremendous storehouse of knowledge. Take advantage!
