We arrived late but everyone was understanding. Helmets were provided. Bikes were not top of the line but fine.The historcal knowledge of our guide was very impressive and he did a great job of adjusting to our 3 childrens levels of understanding. Most of the tour was in the gardens however the minimal amount of street riding gave us bragging rights to cliam we went biking in the city of Rome! Doing tours like this is a great way to keep the kids having fun while gaining knowledge of history and appreciation of another culture. Water was provided and a great cafe right next door made it possible to refuel after the ride. I'd love to do a longer tour of the city streets early morning when traffic is light. Guide and shopworkers spoke perfect English. Great website mades booking reservation before you leave for your trip to Rome easy. Rome would be a better place to visit and live if all the tourists used bikes and not buses. Support bike tours in Rome by taking this fabulous tour.
We did this tour with our two boys, age 11 and 13 and it was wonderful! We all really enjoyed it! Nicolo, our guide, was very knowledgeable and personable. There are a couple spots on the tour that require biking on the streets to get to and from the gardens and Nicolo was very conscientious about keeping us together and feeling safe. (the tour company also had bike helmets for us). Most of the time is spent in the garden and it is beautiful and serene - a really lovely way to enjoy all the information Nicolo shares on the tour along with wonderful views of Rome. He timed stops along the way perfectly and was always willing to take pictures of us. Highly recommend this tour and Nicolo!
The grenita was amazing. The gelato (to die for). The espresso blew our minds (we went nack gor another one the next day) and the tiramisu was the piece de resistance. Thank you for a wonderful, informative & delicious 2 1/2 hours. Liz, Bruce & Blair
Absolutely amazing. We loved our tour guide and she showed us a few places to eat and the best Gelato shop while doing the tour. We enjoyed every minute of it
Everything was unique and tasty, we especially enjoyed the tiramisu. A great way to see the neighbourhoods
