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!

Rome in a day
Best way to see Rome in a day! Highly recommended! E-bike was effortless and Alessandra was a great host!

Must do tour! Excellent
Excellent! We were in Rome for 3 days as part of an 11 day Italy trip. Prior to arriving in Rome, We walked to every site and definitely got our steps in (but also were exhausted at the end of the day), so based on the recommendation from another traveler and to give our feet a break, I booked the 7-hour Rome in a day electric bike tour. We rode through parks, neighborhoods, small sites, all the major sites totaling about 12km. Were able to hop off the bike to walk around and take photos. We saw parts of the city that were inaccessible by bus and saw way more than expected! our tour guide, Alessandra, was wonderful. It was a bicycle with a battery, that were were able to adjust assistance, providing more or less, when needed. So simple to use! The ride was Hands down, the best way to see the city and the best tour of our trip! Would definitely recommend!

An interesting tour - exercise, history and lunch all included!
Paola was an excellent guide. Friendly, informative and professional.
She made took good care of the group around the busy city streets.
We chose normal bikes instead of the E-bikes which was great as the route was almost flat. They were clean and well maintained. Everyone at Top Bike made us feel welcome.
Great to get out into the countryside. The visit to the catacombs and aqueducts was interesting and we had a hearty lunch included (with wine - this is Italy after all!)
I would definitely recommend the tour.

Excellent Tour of the Appian Way, Aqueducts and Catacombs with Alessandro!
We heard about this tour while on an e bike tour in Prague earlier this year. That recommendation did not disappoint. Our tour guide, Alessandro, was extremely knowledgeable and explained the points of interest along our route. We had great weather and no problems operating the e bikes. The included tour of the San Callisto catacombs was excellent. We had a blast riding along the Appian Way and enjoyed our time by the aqueducts. The included lunch was also excellent.

Great day trip
One of the best tours in Rome. First time on e-bike, they are really easy to use and make riding a breeze in any road condition. Our guide, Delores, was very knowledgeable and outgoing. The shop is extremely organized and professional. The bikes are very well-maintained with basket for some gear, cushioned seats, and good shocks. Granted we had perfect weather so it made for great experience too. Would recommend for anyone looking to get out of walking herd of people in city center. Oh, and the catacombs are unreal, a must see experience you can not find within city.
