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!

Our guide Bruno was pleasant and professional, bikes new and comfortable and the drive very relaxing! During the hot summer days in Rome, I would recommend this tour because it is a good opportunity to escape busy city centre and crowded sights and enjoy the shade and beautiful scent of old pines!

This tour was fantastic. We felt safe despite riding near Roman traffic! Matteo our guide was caring and knowledgeable. The history we were able to experience was better than we could ever have imagined. The upgrade to electric assist bikes was great.

A great experience and wonderful way to see some of the sites of Rome. This is a very professional operation. I was a little nervous about navigating Roman traffic on bikes with my 9-year-old. We were in the best of hands in every way - our charming and knowledgable guide, Bruno, kept us safe and entertained. Ask for him as your guide and you will be glad you did.
