We thoroughly enjoyed this Appian Way bike tour! Alberto, our tour guide, did a great job leading our group, making sure we were safe especially across busier intersections and along Appian Way. He give us a wonderful history filled tour on all our stops of various Roman ruins. Loved the catacomb tour, lunch break at a cafe, biking along the Tiber River, and through the streets of Rome. It was such a memorable way to experience Rome and even better with the ebikes!

We had a wonderful time with Ale. Lots of unique sights and information about Rome both historical and current. There is some biking on bike paths, trails and streets. We felt very comfortable that our guide knew the area well. My teenage sons loved it. The bikes were also high quality. Highly recommend!!!

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and kept us safe in some crazy traffic. We booked a 5 hour tour and he went a bit over the time to show us a few things out group had requested. One of the best things we did in Rome.
