It was an unforgettable 'once in a life time' experience! We were only in rome for two days and managed to fit the major highlights within 8 hours and have a lovely lunch as well. Our tour was spilt into a morning tour with Lorenzo who was very knowledgable, approachable and funny and then the afternoon tour down the appian... More

One of the high points of a great trip. Glenn made sure our bikes fit properly (I'm short, so it took a little doing) and then we were off. Exhilarating ride that gave me new perspective on places I'd been before and introduced me to some new ones. Actual ride is pretty easy -- the seven hills of Rome aren't... More

My woman really is afraid of biking inbetween cars and traffic . But she was couragous enough to allow me to book a bike trip in Rome for both of us. Glenn understood this very well and brought us there where she felt comfortable and safe. Beautiful sceneries of the via Appia and the Aquaduct . And a few ability... More

We took the night bike tour with Claudio and loved it. I was nervous about doing the tour with a 12 year old and 16 year old (Rome traffic was a little nervewracking) but we had no problems at all. The kids loved it and Claudio was a great guide. It was a small group (6 of us, our family... More

We took the all-day trip. Until lunch, we visited the best sites in Rome, including ones overlooked by tourists. Our guide, Lorenzo, born and raised in Rome, was amazing. He is so knowledgeable not just about the history of Rome, but also anything else Italy-related. We were intesrested in religion and State in Italy, refugee and migrant rights in Italy... More

We were composed of a group of six form the US with one person joining us from Germany. We gathered at the shop and had our mountain bike seats adjusted for height and then took off on a 4 hour tour of many attractions of Rome. The trip traversed up and down many streets both wide and narrow. There were... More

We booked the All Day Bike Tour, which included the city tour in the morning and the Appian Way and aqueducts in the afternoon. It was our first day in the city and we couldn't have found a better way to get to know the spirit of Rome than on two wheels! We spent the morning with our guide, Michaele,... More

A friend and I booked the Rome by Night Tour. I LOVE to ride . . . and am picky about my bike, and experience. With Red Bycle Touring (and Glenn), I was thrilled. My bike was great . . . well geared for the hills, very comfortable . . . a pleasure to ride. Glenn was fantastic. He took... More

We booked the Rome by Night guided bike tour, which runs between 6pm and 9pm. It was a great experience. Glenn went the extra mile to accomodate us. The bike tour was casual, friendly and enjoyable. We were shown places we would have had difficulties reaching by foot or public transport. It gave us a great snapshot of the popular... More

We booked two half day trips in one day with our 8yo daughter and 10yo son after arriving into Rome the night before. The City Sights tour was well run and we enjoyed different scenery, sights, seeing people and the wonderful aromas of fresh cooking food that we may never have seen unless we had gone on a bike tour....
