Firstly, thanks to our lovely guide Elena! We had a really great day. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather to go with the history and scenery. The catacombs were fascinating. The parks were relaxing and the lunch was yummo. Our bikes were easy to ride and we only needed the e-assist on a couple of hills and coming back through the outskirts of rome (just to keep the group together). Thanks again

Great bike ride!
Our guide, Fabio, was great! He gave us great insight into the history of the sights we visited. The bikes were a pleasure to ride, and didn't really need the assist, but it was nice to have!

Excellent tour of Rome due to excellent guide
Myrice was the guide for our 4 person cycle group (whole day Rome tour including lunch and gelato). She was always smilling and professional.

I have done many mountain biking and cycling tours. This was the best, not so much Rome is the best city, but rather it was Myrice. She just make the tour a huge difference

The lunch was delicious and comprehensive.

Fantastic!
A great way to see authentic and off the beaten track Rome whilst still seeing the main sights. It was a great day with a lovely guide and lovely lunch. You see the backstreets as well as the main sights. Highly recommended!

First time visit to Rome and we were super impressed at how much we got to see in a day. The ebikes are fun and easy to learn to use. Seven hours on a bike made me a bit nervous as an inexperienced cyclist, especially in the Rome traffic (cars and pedestrians) but our local guide Elena was so confident and knowledgeable that we had no problems at all. Lunch and a gelato stop were lovely. Very well organized and a thoroughly enjoyable day! Would not hesitate to recommend
