Signed up for the All Day tour, which is just a combo of the city tour in the morning, followed by lunch and then the Appian Way tour in the afternoon. We had eight tourists total in our morning group. The guide, Michael, took us to the major places in Rome and explained their significance, which was great. Got back... More

Thanks for the great feedback! With our All Day Bike Tour + Lunch you get a lot for your money. Certainly more than that which our main rival offer and even at a better rate. Perhaps you read the previous review of our All Day tour? Following the feedback we received regarding our chosen restuarant, I decided to try the... More

My husband and I plus another couple signed up for the All Day Tour which included ancient ruins of Rome, Catacombs and the Appian Way plus lunch. It was us 4 plus guide. We started out in the rain, but by mid morning it had stopped. Biking through Rome at times felt somewhat unsafe. It is of course, a pedestrian... More

My sister and I did the night bike tour with Glenn and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! He took us by a few of the main sights but our favorite part was getting to some of the hidden parks and sights around Rome. We got a good feel for how the locals live when he took us... More

Guided by Glenn, we were a party of 3 Spaniards including a 13 yo girl. We had an amazing afternoon getting to and from the Catacomb. Is not only the fun of riding you get, but also escaping from the hecticness of Rome itself for a bit, get to see the idilic countryside and fresh air. Gleen was very keen... More

We are a family of 5 (kids aged 12, 9 & 7) and did the half day Appian Way bike tour. It was a fantastic day. Glenn was our tour guide and handled all the kids (and adults) incredibly well, despite the heat. Some of the riding is in traffic which can be very hairy given the craziness of Rome's... More

I did a 3 hour evening tour of Rome with Glen and 2 other Aussie chicks....It was fantastic. One might think Rome is not safe for the biker but Glenn manuevered us through the traffic onto the sites.....I never felt threatened....plus we saw the real Roma that would take hours on foot. As an added bonus, he gave us restaurant... More

We booked a half day tour to the Appian Way, via the catacombs. We were a party of seven including 5 boys, aged 11-15. Whilst the catacombs were interesting, the highlights are the Via Appia Antico and the aqueducts. We were very well guided by Viktor, who managed to ensure that we safely made it across busy intersections and some... More

Myself and 6 other women enjoyed the 8 hour ride through Rome and area with Red Bicycle Tours in May of this year. The owner and guide were very helpful and the bikes were of good standard.

My husband and I booked the four hour tour of the Appian Way. Our guide, Michele took the time to ensure that we were properly fitted with bikes that were suitable for our physical size and ability.

We recently did the four-hour biking tour of the Appian way and the catacombs. Biking out of the city was a bit scary on the busy streets, but our guide Michele knew the safest routes to get to the Appian way quickly. Very good guide, who stopped to point out ruins and points of interest. The return trip through parks... More
