Beyond incredible experience. I was extremely nervous starting off as I’m not a cyclist and I’ve never cycled an electric bike previously but our guide was incredibly patient and kind. It’s by far my highlight of Rome as I never thought I’d actually be able to do it. We traveled everywhere and stopped regularly to ensure I wasn’t tired. Just book this trip as you’ll see a side to Rome that few people see. Absolutely brilliant

Massi was great! My friends and I scheduled a tour before the food tour that ran a little longer than expected. We were running late to the food tour, so I reached out to GetYourGuide who put me in touch with Massi and we were able to meet the group at the 2nd stop. The food was tasty and the gelato *chef's kiss*

A fantastic way to see Rome with our very funny host Mario. See the usual sites but also the hidden Rome and learn some fascinating facts that you won't find in any books. Brilliant!

Great bikes worked flawlessly (electric MTBs) perfect for the Appian Antica. Staff very helpful and spoke English very well.

Andrea gave us a great guided tour of illuminated Rome and gave us interesting facts.
