Ancient Appian Way, Catacombs and Roman Countryside Bike Tour
Reviewed by: Donna P, May 2015
I encountered a bike accident early on the tour. It was no fault of anyone. It just happened. The guide, Matteo was wonderful. He was careful and protective of us as we rode at a slow pace through Rome to get to the Park. It was a freak thing that I got thrown of the bike. I needed to go to the hospital. Matteo made me feel safe. The group waited till the ambulance came. Matteo secured my camera. I needed attention to a cut on my left brow and a bruise on the palm of my hand. Everyone was very nice and patient. I was traveling alone. When I was released a little later I was feeling shakey but returned to the bike tour office and the staff was so nice. They gave me juice and water and chatted with me till I left and they called me a taxi. Fleurin, at the office came to my hotel in the evening after hours to return my camera! I was departing Rome the next morning and unable to go back for my camera. They were all so wonderful! I feel badly that I missed the bike tour. The bike tour company and Viator agreed to return my money since I did not get to enjoy the tour. I would love to return to Rome and complete the tour sometime in the future. Thank you!

this was awesome but not for the novice bike rider the computer bike was outstanding!!! we saw beautiful sites and while I was afraid of the traffic, allessandra was amazing at keeping it all very safe. I loved it. she was so attentive-I fell of my own accord off the bike and she was promptly there with a first aid kit/washing the area and putting bandaid on.. so kind. the catacombs were gorgeous and the appertif of cheese bread and drink was much needed and loved by all. I would do this again in a minute-I must say top notch equipment from the bike to helmet to the computer-wow. definitely recommend this for a nice change of pace

Our family of four including two sons 11 and 16 took the Ancient Appian way, Catacombs and Countryside bike tour in March, 2015. We could not have been more pleased with the guide or the bikes. The tour includes all aspects of life in Rome - historical sites, local parks, countryside, regular neighborhoods and some routine streets of Rome. We thought that was a nice bonus. Matteo was our guide and he was full of knowledge he was happy to share, very considerate of the bikers needs and levels, and was very personable and fun to be around. This was the highlight of our 11 tour of Italy and would not consider going back to Rome without booking another excursion with them.

Great tour, although it was much, much easier than i anticipated. Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and very conscientious about ensuring that everyone on the tour was safe and accounted for as we rode through the traffic in Rome. As well, the bikes were in great condition which we both appreciated.
I understand you used to offer a longer, more ambitious ride up to a lake in the hill. Sounds like it would be a great ride! Sorry it's not available, but i will check next time we are in Rome in case you decide to offer it again.
