Don’t miss it!

Great experience! Must not miss it. Different to other excursions, it allows you feel how the city really feels.
Great Vesper Tour!
, Aug 2021
Personal guide was awesome! Showed us key highlights of Rome while doing so on a Vesper! We rode a good bit of the time and made key highlight stops.
What a fun way to see Rome!
, Jul 2021
Alex and Mario did an amazing job showing us around Rome! We got to see things we would never thought about seeing! Alex & Mario listened as it was completely customizable as to what we wanted to see. This is definitely the best way to see Rome- avoid the traffic and tourist buses! It was such a fun time seeing Rome the way the Romans do!
Like Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure in Rome. Absolutely an Educational Blast.
, Jun 2021
This tour was amazing. We thought we had a handle on Rome after going day and night for 4 days. This tour taught us how wrong we were. It gave us insights we never could have gotten without Alex. It was Fun, inciteful, and a lot of history all shoved into a little time window. Incredible. Take this Tour. You won't regret it. Also come to Rome, It is like Disneyland without lines. There are small crowds at all the main attractions.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure in Rome
, Jun 2021
This tour gave us insight that we could have never gotten on our own. It was fun, innovative, educational, and a complete blast. We had been in Rome for 4 days, and thought we had a decent perception of the town. This tour showed us how little we knew. It was incredible and I would not leave Rome without taking it.

Best "Roman Holiday" by Vespa
, Oct 2019
We visited Rome for a week and decided to hire a guide to take us on a 3-4 hour Vespa tour of Rome. The guide had his bike and my husband and I shared the other bike. Mario, our guide, was amazing and he took us on the most fun and amazing tour of Rome. We opted for "off the beaten track" and he delivered. One of my favourite moments was when we stopped for coffee at his favourite coffee place, Bar Calisto in the Trastevere area.... a place where only the locals go... Frederico, who runs Vespa Tours Centro Moto Colosseo, was amazing as well.

We did this first day we arrived in Rome, our guide Victorio was great, and did a great job taking us to a lot of great vistas and sites. This is a great way to get oriented to city quickly which was our goal. It rained and hailed for a short summer thunderstorm and our guide safely placed us under a 2000 year old aqueduct to keep us out of the rain, met some other cyclists hanging out there. One of the highlights of our trip. Rome traffic can be a little crazy but Victorio did a great job of shepherding us thru everything and keeping us safe. We did the afternoon tour so we missed morning rush hour and got some great evening pics.
Best way to see Rome!!

Guides were fantastic. Lots of touring around great neighborhoods one might not see on one’s own. Fun, a little scary, but well worth every penny.

Amazing tour! Frederico runs a great business... clean, scooters. He goes out of his way to make the tour a special occasion . Alexandro was our guide...*****...5 star tour. Very interesting facts and well informed about Rome. We saw places we would not have seen on other tours. Worth every penny!

Wow, there isnt much I can say but this is A MUST for anyone visiting Rome, the thrill of zipping through the rat runs of Rme with a personal Vespa stunt driver giving you a running commentary on the history, visiting less touristy attractions as well as some of the big ones. The versatility to just pull up, hop off and talk about an attraction then back on to zip off to the next destination. My wife and I had the most amazing time and I can only say that I now hold Rome as one of my most loved destinations I have visited. We went for the afternoon tour and we would spend a few minutes at each destination but t my absolute favourite was the orange gardens through the keyhole. I would challenge even the most experienced traveller to not enjoy this experience. Throw caution to the wind take the afternoon Tour and see Rome in the evening witnessing a breathtaking thrill. Take a warm jacket
