Hands down the funnest part of our trip!! My daughter was mad at me for doing the best thing of our trip on the first day versus saving the best for last. It did turn out to definitely be the highlight of our 11 day trip. Donato and his colleague were fantastic, letting us pick where we wanted to go, offering great suggestions as well, providing history on the sites, driving carefully and skillfully in challenging Rome traffic and dropping us off at our choice. They gave us plenty of time for us to take our pictures and gladly took multiple pictures of the two of us. The closest you'll ever get to feeling like a local and no better way to spend an afternoon in Rome!!!

If there is just one thing you do in Rome......LET THIS BE IT!!!!

THE most amazing and coolest family experience.

As a family of 5 including a 17,14 and 10 year old I was quite apprehensive on safety and speed, but our fears were set aside almost immediately. These guys were true professionals from start to finish, they've obviously got a great deal of experience, have known each other a very long time and made everything look so easy. They were also very respectful and caring with the children and myself with a bad back, avoiding all the bumps where possible. Valerino was our main guide, a true historian and certainly the coolest one we've met to date! with a passion for passing on his knowledge in an extremely easy manner, he was incredibly interesting and seemed to know everything there was to know about Rome. The 3-hour tour was timed to perfection so you didn't get bored and we learnt so much, in fact we just didn't want it to end.It's worth noting that Valerino also carried around an iPad so he could show us how everything would have looked in its full glory when first built...this was a great visualisation and really added to the tour as you don't always get this type of representation in the main travel guides. I really can't stress enough how good this tour was and I'm surprised it's not fully-booked up several moths in advance, it's that good.Perfect for solo visits, couples or families and I have to say particularly gratifying for my husband and I to watch the children enjoy history, smile big and feel like they were in the movies all at the same time...thank you to Valerino and his fabulous friends for a truly memorable experience....

I booked this tour for my husband's 50th birthday and he absolutely loved it. The extremely knowledgeable guide took us to some fascinating places not generally seen on the tourist trail.
Both the guide and his colleague were friendly, helpful and really interesting to meet. Their passion for Rome and their enthusiasm for it's history really helped to make the tour special. We both felt very well looked after and safe at all times. Seeing Rome by vespa is an exciting way to explore this fascinating city and I would thoroughly recommend it.

You MUST do this!

It is the best way to see the eternal city!

Valerino and Mimo short for Dominic were amazing!

We saw more in three hours than our friends saw in three days!

Very safe and comfortable - wonderful and informative - casual and friendly - best trip EVER!

They also took us for hot chocolate because it was cold that day and it was amazing - like a melted candy bar. They explained that the tourist places used pre-processed hot chocolate and they took us to a bakery/coffee shop that the Romans go to. It was full of local people - and the donut was so good that we couldn't even speak.

I am a little old lady and had been concerned about being able to get on and off of the Vespa, but it was very easy and Valerio was so sweet and made sure I was comfortable.

They took us wherever we wanted to go and if we didn't know they suggested amazing things and off we went. We saw the usual sights and some places that virtually no one goes - did you know there was an actual pyramid in Rome?

When we were near the end of our time I mentioned that I would go to the Parthenon the next day since we were out of time, and sure enough - Valerio took us there even though our time was up.

Oh yeah, and we also raced a Ferrari through the streets of Rome - and we won!!!

Don't worry, it was safe - it just seemed like we were going fast - and he had to stop for things that we could just zip around - it was incredible - people were taking pictures of us :-

Amazing tour by Ricardo thoroughly enjoyed it! Thank you :

We saved this for our last day so we had already seen the usual tourist attractions. Our guides took us to the lesser known and uncrowded spots we would have missed. Very cool tour!!!

This tour was amazing and a great way to start off our Rome holiday. Our guides took us to out of the way spots away from the crowds and gave us so much history on a one to one basis. Loved zipping through the streets of Rome on these Vespas. I was a little nervous about being able to sit on the bike, but didn't have any issues at all. Would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you are travelling with older kids. So much fun and worth the price!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This tour was so good I would recommend it to anybody. We were two adults and three teenagers and the guys who ran our tour could not have been lovelier. This is one of the best holiday experiences we have done and I loved the anecdotes and local history information we were given. Perfect.
