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 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.
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.
Wife and I went on this tour and I highly recommend it. We are 50 and handled the trip with ease along with another couple and their son. It was close to the city, but far enough out for traffic not to be an issue. The scenery was gorgeous with plenty of history stops. Our guide, Paul, did a great job and kept the pace and stops just right. At Paul's suggestion, we did a catacombs tour along the way and it fit right in with the history of the tour. Overall, this was the highlight of our trip.
My wife and I had an amazing time on this tour. Our tour guide Alan was awesome. He was extremely knowledgeable and we learned so much about the Appain Way and ancient Rome from him. Anna and Marco at Wheely Bike Rentals and Tours did a great job arranging this tour. It was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.
This tour gets you up close and personal with the Via Appia, Aqueducts, and some of the most stunning scenery anywhere around Rome. Our tour group was small and it felt that we had the entire park area almost to ourselves. Martina, our tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area history including the country house, son's mausoleum, and circus of the last pagan emperor and she made us feel quite welcome. Wheely's office staff were exceptional as well. This tour is well worth the effort!
A great way to see the sights beyond central Rome and learn some history. We cycled about 26 km, but there were many stops along the way. Due to many uneven surfaces and a few moderate hills, I would not recommend this tour for inexperienced cyclists, but the occasional recreational cyclist will not have any problems. Our group was just 4 people and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
This was a great tour. The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to our needs. The staff at the shop was friendly and efficient. This was a wonderful opportunity to see the countryside around Rome without all the hassle of the crowds. We would do it again and highly recommend it!
