Highlight of our time in Rome
, Oct 2019
Liz was knowledgeable and patient, letting our preferences guide the tour, since it was a small group. (We booked for a Tuesday morning, which meant it was an accidentally private tour.)

Our family of 4 loved this tour! We learned a lot about Rome and Roman history. It was wonderful to leave the busy, hot city and ride our bikes on the ancient Appian Way. It was amazing to think that that was one of the first roads and is still operating thousands of years later. I felt like we were in the countryside as there were few houses or development around. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Thank you so much!!! Discover the Appian way by bike is one of the most exciting thinks to do!!! We are glad that you enjoyed this tour with our guide! Hope to see you soon again :)
No what was advertised!

Advertised as leisurely 3 hour bike tour of Appian Way. WHAT? We spent 45 minutes riding in the busy streets of Rome -- each way. One bike had bad gears, low air in tires and got a flat tire. Very difficult hills, uneven roads, traffic and not much to see -- didn't even see aquaducts. Very different from what was depicted in our research.

This was so fun! We really felt like locals as we crossed streets and rode with the traffic on the streets of Rome. Francesca was the best! She slowed down with us when the hills made us slow. There are no hills where we live! Her explanations of what we were seeing were very interesting. She was patient and informative. We would do it again. I don't think we could have done the longer bike tour that takes you further into the countryside. We thought we were going to see more of the aqueducts and the catacombs but that is on the longer tour. The bikes were great. By the way, we are a couple in our middle 60's. I'd highly recommend doing this tour if you like to ride bikes. We are just recreational riders.
Wonderful Appian Way Tour

We enjoyed our three hour bike tour of the Appian Way. Our tour guide was wonderful and let us stop along the way to visit the historical sights. We wouldn't have seen this aspect of Rome if we hadn't done this tour. We highly recommend booking a tour through Wheely Bike Rental company.
This was my family's favorite tour...

This was my family's favorite tour. Our guide, Kate, was fantastic. She was very alert to our needs, since there were just a few tougher hills, that we weren't quite in shape for, she stopped and let us rest a few extra times when we needed it. I wouldn't do this tour in the hotter months but in Spring it was fantastic. There is some wonderful history that most Rome visitors just don't get to go see because it is a bit further out of the way but it is beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable and nice as could be.
It was a great way to see and learn...

It was a great way to see and learn about Rome. Our tour guide was Eddie and he was phenomenal. The tour was very informative. The bike rental office is located down the road from the Colosseum which I think is a great location to start a bike ride. Multiple stops made the ride less tragic for me considering I had not ridden a bike in over 10 years. We also stopped midpoint for a quick snack at a quaint little restaurant with delicious food.
Exciting way to see the countryside...

Exciting way to see the countryside of Rome! We had so much fun on this tour! Our guide, Elisha, did a fantastic job of guiding us through the city to the Appian Way. We made a few stops along the way and she watched the bikes as we went in a beautiful Church, explored the 2nd wall of Rome, and other sites. Our tour was on Boxing Day, which was a holiday. This made it a little tricky to navigate through the extra people, but also provided a very special day as we got to join Italians families riding bikes and jogging together. Just a warning that the trip did have some big hills to ride up and down and we rode over cobblestone roads, dirt trails, and the boulders of the Appian Way. We felt like we got a good workout after the tour. It was great for our two teenage boys. This tour definitely stands out as one of our favorite activities!
This tour started out in the city...

This tour started out in the city which is a bit terrifying with all of the traffic. I used my helmet all of the time. This is a very challenging bike tour not something for children or unhealthy people. Although we did stop to fill out water bottles and for lunch, during the summer time it is extremely hot and the 'roads' we traveled were made BC and at times we rode through the woods. In some areas we had to walk our bikes because the terrain was too difficult. I fell down once because of the terrain but was ok. It was nice to see the outer areas of Rome, learn a little about it's history, and fit some exercise into the trip. You ride through the area where the catacombs are, but you do not visit them. My only advice would be that it is not for children or unfit people. My guide was super nice, lunch was good and it was easy to find the tour office unlike some other tours. I was lucky there were only 2 people on this tour. I can't imagine 1 guide with more than 4 or 5 people.
We were very disappointed in this...

We were very disappointed in this tour. Rugged terrain, traffic and a tour leader who had no concern about our safety or comfort level were the main reasons we did not enjoy it. An accident waiting to happen. The Appian Way was just OK. The Aqueducts Park was not very interesting.
