This bike ride was fantastic. The electric bikes made the trip 100 pleasant for everyone. A good workout but riding with ease. Our guide was so nice and knowledgeable and we saw much of Rome that we would never have seen.

From our first meeting with the staff of this establishment to our last, the team were fantastic. Our guide was knowledgeable and yet explained things that we wanted to know about rather than just making a speech in a selected spot. The tour was the right length and we did not feel hurried in anyway.
I have come home demanding a similar bike for my birthday hope they get the hint! they were quality products with just the right amount of power that you could select. You ended up feeling exercised and not exhausted. I think that you would need to be used to riding a bike however as the roads and tracks can be a bit bumpy. Thank you we enjoyed the company of others in our small group a brilliant day out so glad we did it.

A very different type of tour. The bikes meant we could cover a lot of ground and see some of the sites that were off the usual track. It was great to have the electric bikes to help out with the hills! The tour guide was fantastic and looked after us so well and had lots of interesting facts for us and the catacombs were definitely worth a visit.

This was the best activity we did while in Italy! We had motorized bikes in case we wanted to use. The guide was very personable. So many memories! It couldn't have been better. Don't miss this treat! Terry

So glad that we took this tour. You really get to get off of the routine and go see the more rural and interesting side of Rome, the Catacombs and the country. Very worthwhile doing.

Excellent tour - a must do if you have the time. We did this tour with Paul as guide and he was very informative and knowledgeable. Our tour was on a day of 6C and we were nervous about doing it in the heat. We were offered electric bikes which was perfect. Paul always found places to stop in the shade for his talks which was perfect. The Catacombs were amazing and very interesting to do the guided tour. Option to stay outside under tree if you want to. Then along the ancient Appain Way with remainders of many Mausoleums along each side - fascinating to see. Onto Aquaducts which still remain although not all in one piece at places. Journey through the countryside which is lovely and shady too! We then had lovely wine and cheese at a sheep farm and could watch the sheep being milked as well. Back into Rome to see Baths of Caracalla, Circo Massimo and Colloseum. An excellent tour with excellent guide. Highly recommend.

In five months of travel this was one of our enduring memories. One certainly does not have to a Lance Armstrong to cope. Anyone can. DO it!
