An all-time trip where you see Rome in a different way. Skilled guide Paola, who was clear and distinct in her communication and we felt safe all the way. Wonderful experience with electric mountain bike, could take the hills as little as nothing. Good timing with the breaks and good stories with pictures about what we saw, among other things. the aqueducts and Via Appia through a large park where we followed the aqueduct buildings. Definitely recommended from us. Monika and Claus from Denmark

Emmanuelle, our bike guide, conducted us safely through the streets of Rome to the Appian Way (Via Appia). He is passionate about his city, its history, and biking. When someone loves what he does like Emmanuelle does, it makes the excursion so much more enjoyable. The e-bikes are an absolute requirement for the journey through the Roman countryside. We enjoyed our homemade tastings on a gorgeous little farm along the way. I highly recommend this excursion.

This is an excellent activity to get out of Rome and see a part of history, the Via Reginarum. So many interesting stops, aquaducts, mausoleums, villas, etc. Alberto was an excellent guide, knowledgeable, personable, and a great sense of humor. Very concerned with our safety as well. The farm for the food-tasting was wonderful, with amazing locally produced olive oil, honey, wine, bread and cheese. Frederica was a lovely host for the luncheon.

Our guide was knowledgeable, likeable and well informed. The route was enjoyable and unforgettable. Our guide was very safety conscious and helpful. Our first experience on e-bikes was as excellent.

This was a great day out that delivered way beyond our expectations. The electric bikes made light work of the terrain and our guide Allessio was courteous, knowledgeable and good fun to be with.
