This was by far the highlight of our brief stay in Rome. Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage girls loved cruising through the Rome traffic with the very personable and informative guides. They picked us up at our apartment, and asked if there was anything in particular we wanted to see. We were happy for an overview, and they took us all over, to places we would otherwise never have seen. We stopped often for informative talks on the history of the city and to take photos , and stopped for coffee and cakes, which were included in the price. We were dropped off back at our apartment, but they were happy to drop us wherever we liked. If you do one tour in Rome, this is the one to do. It was expensive, but worth every cent for the memories and experience.

This tour was awesome. Michel and his guides were fantastic. They took us all over the city proudly showing us the history of Rome. We also stopped at a small café only the locals go to for coffee and sweets, a hidden treasure. Would highly recommend this tour.

An amazing way to see Rome! Jacob Yakob was extremely knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tour very much. He took me beyond the normal tourist attractions to the outskirts of the city, the top of several of the 7 hills, the Rome keyhole, and many other places. Overall a great day!

Absolutely wonderful tour! Our guides met us right outside of our hotel, they were both natives of Rome, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the history of all the sites we saw. Though they were young guys, they had both been giving tours and driving Vespas for years and were sure to point out great places to eat and experience local culture. At the start of the tour they asked what we wanted to see most, but since we were interested in an overview of the city we let them choose where to go. In addition to the main attractions like the Colosseum they brought us to many other places, off the beaten path, that we definitely wouldn't have seen on our own including two incredible overlooks to get sweeping views of the city. Part of the tour also includes a stop at a local bakery/cafe for coffee and sweets, the guides were incredibly personable and really made us feel like we were there with friends. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for an adventure and a way to see a lot of Rome in a short amount of time and learn some history along the way!

Our Vespa ride around Rome, was the highlight of our visit there. Our companion riders Valerio and Michele were exceptional in their consideration and care. As older girls we appreciated the extra effort they made in order for us to enjoy the thrills of Roman traffic! We have visited Rome on other occasions and they were able to take us to places that we had not visited before and were very well versed on the history and events of the city. We would highly recommend this adventure to anyone of any age. Enjoy!!
