One of our favorite things we have EVER done in Rome. I highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Rick, was so kind and so attentive in making sure everyone in the group was doing well. He pointed out potential hazards and when we would need to walk our bikes. We all just loved him. It says “light lunch” on the tour info, but we had plenty of food left over. The E bikes are rugged and easy to use. You get to ride them on the Appian Way which you don’t want to do for a long time, but it will give you a sense of what traveling was like back then. You see incredible lengths of aqueducts and the descent into the catacombs and the things you see and learn down there were awesome. Rick also stopped along the way many times to point out historically significant structures. His explanations were always insightful. We had a mixture of bike riders on our tour, including someone who hadn’t ridden a bike in 25 years. We all made it just fine.
Excellent tour that takes you to so many interesting places in just half a day. The city walls, aqueducts, catacombs, Via Appia, etc. One of the best things we did in Rome! Highly recommended. Prepare for a bumpy ride on Via Appia, but the e-mountain bikes make it easy and fun. Did this tour with my 13-year old and he had a huge smile in his face the whole day. It’s a great activity for families with teens as well.
Alessandro, the guide was absolutely amazing. He was extremely personable and informative. The tour was tremendously fun, very easy on the ebike (especially for myself who hadn’t ridden a bike in 4+ years). I would suggest this tour to anyone who wanted an activity in Rome that would take you off the normal paths. It’s a great way to spend 6 hours.
Beautiful experience! We discovered a wonderful part of Rome. Our guide Alessandro was attentive to our safety and precise and attentive to explanations. Lunch is also excellent.
With a special thanks to our guide Jos , who made from this trip a memory to never forget .
