This was my family's favorite tour. Our guide, Kate, was fantastic. She was very alert to our needs, since there were just a few tougher hills, that we weren't quite in shape for, she stopped and let us rest a few extra times when we needed it. I wouldn't do this tour in the hotter months but in Spring it was fantastic. There is some wonderful history that most Rome visitors just don't get to go see because it is a bit further out of the way but it is beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable and nice as could be.

It was a great way to see and learn about Rome. Our tour guide was Eddie and he was phenomenal. The tour was very informative. The bike rental office is located down the road from the Colosseum which I think is a great location to start a bike ride. Multiple stops made the ride less tragic for me considering I had not ridden a bike in over 10 years. We also stopped midpoint for a quick snack at a quaint little restaurant with delicious food.

Exciting way to see the countryside of Rome! We had so much fun on this tour! Our guide, Elisha, did a fantastic job of guiding us through the city to the Appian Way. We made a few stops along the way and she watched the bikes as we went in a beautiful Church, explored the 2nd wall of Rome, and other sites. Our tour was on Boxing Day, which was a holiday. This made it a little tricky to navigate through the extra people, but also provided a very special day as we got to join Italians families riding bikes and jogging together. Just a warning that the trip did have some big hills to ride up and down and we rode over cobblestone roads, dirt trails, and the boulders of the Appian Way. We felt like we got a good workout after the tour. It was great for our two teenage boys. This tour definitely stands out as one of our favorite activities!

Wife and I went on this tour and I highly recommend it. We are 50 and handled the trip with ease along with another couple and their son. It was close to the city, but far enough out for traffic not to be an issue. The scenery was gorgeous with plenty of history stops. Our guide, Paul, did a great job and kept the pace and stops just right. At Paul's suggestion, we did a catacombs tour along the way and it fit right in with the history of the tour. Overall, this was the highlight of our trip.

My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour. Our tour guide Alan was awesome. He was extremely knowledgeable and we learned so much about the Appain Way and ancient Rome from him. Anna and Marco at Wheely Bike Rentals and Tours did a great job arranging this tour. It was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.

This tour gets you up close and personal with the Via Appia, Aqueducts, and some of the most stunning scenery anywhere around Rome. Our tour group was small and it felt that we had the entire park area almost to ourselves. Martina, our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area history including the country house, son's mausoleum, and circus of the last pagan emperor and she made us feel quite welcome. Wheely's office staff were exceptional as well. This tour is well worth the effort!

This was a highlight of our trip to Rome. Not for the inexperienced cyclist, but equally not grueling. Our guide Martina was fantastic. One of the most interesting and enjoyable activities I have ever done.

A great way to see the sights beyond central Rome and learn some history. We cycled about 26 km, but there were many stops along the way. Due to many uneven surfaces and a few moderate hills, I would not recommend this tour for inexperienced cyclists, but the occasional recreational cyclist will not have any problems. Our group was just 4 people and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
