My husband and I did the five hour bike tour, including the San Sebastian catacombs, with Alessio on June 23rd, 2020. Alessio is such an amazing guy…so nice and so fun and showed us all around Rome and educated us on the vast history of Roma. We stopped at a cafe and had a coffee and a panini with Alessio on the way. This was one of the best tours and one of our best days in Rome. Seeing Rome by bike is a great way to explore the city. We highly recommend this tour and we thank Alessio for such an amazing day!

Very nice little adventure bike ride! So wonderful to cycle over that ancient Appian Way. Very nice! First a bit through the city and then it becomes rural. And interesting tour of the catacombs.

The title says "Rome: Appian Way Catacombs and Aqueducts Private Bike Tour" but they don't take you to Appian Way nor Aqueducts. They take you straight to Catacombs, if you checked this option. And that's all. The tour which was supposed to be 5 hours long ends in 4 hours.
