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.

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
