The tour with Peter was really great - our best experience in Rome ever. We were on the road for a little over six hours. At no time was it boring or too exhausting. Peter's explanations were neither too short nor too long and really informative. He always answered our questions. Even an unexpected flat tire in the middle of the tour didn't bother him. With the 16 federal states and their capitals as well as other little jokes, we easily survived the time until the spare wheel arrived. We were allowed to have a say in where to go and what we see - that's also a highlight for us. Just like the ice at the end of the tour, by the way. Thank you for this and for this unforgettable day.

Very nice walk with a guide who gave us good explanations throughout the course. The catacombs were guided by a site guide. Good e-bikes. The visit was not entirely private. There was a family of 3 very nice people with us (2 people). No visit to aqueducts as the title indicates. It's worth it to get out of Rome for a bit

The Appian way and catacombs tour by electric bike is exotic, for us French it's a bit like going on an adventure with Asterix and Obelix on one of these famous Roman roads. Our very friendly guide Francesco gave us lots of information on Roman life in ancient times and today. The visit to the catacombs is also very instructive. On the other hand, you should know that part of the route is in the middle of traffic, so don't be afraid!!!! This part is still a bit stressful, when you get back to the bike path on the banks of the Tiber, you say phew!
