Anestis was an excellent guide through the streets and landmarks of Rome and the Vatican. Like all great tour guides, his attention to detail and intricate knowledge of the city's history, lore and legends was evident throughout. Whether you've read Angels and Demons or not, this is worthy every dollar you spend. Also good to know - this is a long walking tour, so get your walking shoes on and carry water/refreshments with you.

Departing stop was easy to find, the staff was nice and friendly. Free wifi and headphones in your language with nice sites descriptions of what we were touring, also beautiful classical music all throughout the ride. We loved it!

It’s nice to see everything and get off and on wherever you want so you can see the place close and take pictures. We recommend to take the 48hour so you’ve time to get off and take pictures everywhere.

Michele was very nice and knowledgeable. The bikes were street bikes (thin tires). We got to bike around town, see all the main locations and take good photos! Highly recommend!

It was excellent. Ksenia was super cool guide. Definitely would recommend.
