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....

I joined the Red Bicycle tour with my husband and 2 teenage kids on a hot sunny day in Rome. Musa is a super leader. He was very attentive to all members during the whole trip and has given us very detailed explanation of the history. It was tough for me but with his clear guidance, I was so able... More

My wife booked us the all day bike ride as a surprise for our anniversary. It consisted of a morning round the city or Rome and the afternoon on the oldest road in Rome. In between these two ride was an amazing panini at a little deli round the corner from the bike shop. We were in a group of... More

We did the Appian Way tour with Musa - It was a great way to get off the beaten and see Rome outside the city centre.

Arrrived in Rome and 24 hours later booked onto this tour. Fantastic timing at 6pm -9pm as it was cooler and was wonderful to watch the sun setting over Rome as we travelled along. Wonderful overview of Rome managing to incorporate lots of different distinctive areas. Friendly staff and participants. Great stop at a lovely bar with great cocktails and... More

The evening bike ride round a variety of different places in Rome that we'd never have seen otherwise was really great fun. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the various places we stopped at and, more importantly for me, he was extremely patient with my inexpert attempts at cycling round the city. Going along the river and... More

We took the full day tour and loved all of it! In the morning we enjoyed weaving our way through the back streets of Rome, stopping to learn about many historical landmarks and for coffee at a boutique Italian cafe. It was such a relaxing morning not having to worry about maps or catching trains and we saw so much... More

My husband and I recently did the sunset cycle through the city with Glen. This was a great excursion for our first day in Rome. The bikes were in good condition and the pace of the ride was just right. We saw many wonderful sights, including some less touristy more local spots. We also stopped for drinks at two really...

First of all, the scenery during the tour was fantastic! The ride itself was fun too, but some of the paths were very narrow and some of the cobbled streets were treacherous. The pace of the tour was VERY FAST! It was hard to keep up with our guide and he did not look back to see if we were... More

Dear jane I am no longer a good guide, its hard to admit but i have become side-tracked with other things...like organising the tours and maintaining the fleet of bikes. Hence my colleagues, michele de gregorio and musa de bisoius will be leading the tours from now on. I will continue to have a hand in the day to day... More

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
