The E-Bike tour was a wonderful experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Rome history and the ride was beautiful. The aqueducts were amazing to see as were the Roman ruins. Overall a great experience.

Love, Love, Love!!!
Mark_A, May 2024
The three employees of this tour company plus "the boss" were amazingly helpful and kind. They made sure I was OK when I got a little nauseated at the end. (My fault for eating a heavy pasta dish minutes before the start of a physical activity)
Perfect for Active Families

Very fun tour and wonderful guide! This was a great way to see parts of the city I would note have seen via any other means. Biking through huge parks and over the ancient cobblestones was amazing.
Response from Host, May 2024

Rain or shine it is great tour
Shannon_M, May 2024
Despite the rain it was a great tour of the historic sites. Our bike guide was excellent and spoke English fluently. E-bikes are a great way to take a tour.

Dear Shannon thanks for your kind feedback. We are glad that you had an amazing experience with us. We hope you can join one of our tours soon again Roma Starbike Team
Amazing experience
Kelly_M, May 2024
We’ve been to Rome several times before but have not experienced the Appian Way and certainly not by bike. This tour was the perfect way to finish our week in Rome by seeing and experiencing something completely new. The tour guide was friendly and experienced and yes, while the traffic in Rome is daunting, we never felt unsafe and were always given thorough and careful instruction. The e-bikes were easy to use and in good working order and were certainly appreciated for the occasionally strenuous uphill climbs. Hearing about the history of the Appian Way while actually being able to see it and travel it, will be something I’ll always remember. Our kids (12 and 10) are confident bikers and enjoyed themselves thoroughly and our nervous 14yo said at the end that she had a great time. Thank you! Highly recommend.
Response from Host, May 2024
Dear Kelly, thank you for giving us your feedback. We happy to know that you enjoyed so much our bike tour. Should you happen to be in Rome again in the future, please come and join one of our other tours. Roma Starbike Team

Great day
Jill_O, Apr 2024
This half-day tour was a highlight of our time in Rome. Valerio was a great guide- he shared loads of interesting information with us in addition to being a lot of fun (as well as very patient with guests who were, let’s say, not so great on the e-bike, speaking about a friend, for sure). The bikes were very safe annd easy to ride, although we had to navigate through traffic before reaching the trail and some spots on the trail itself were a bit more difficult. Not treacherous by any means. The scenery was gorgeous and the history was mind-bending. Just a really great way to spend the day.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Dear Jill, thank you very much for taking the time to reviewing us. We are very happy to know that you enjoyed both the tour and our profesional guide Valerio. We hope to see you again in the future Roma Starbike Team
Fun ride through the sites
John_C, Apr 2024
Our tour guide was great! Very knowledgeable. The ride was just a tad too long. We did the 4 hour trip. Our butts got a workout with the little seats. They might invest in the large padded ones. Other than that the tour was great! Safe. Very interesting.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Dear John, thank you for taking the time to reviewing us. We are happy that you enjoyed our tour and thank you for your comment on the seat. Every suggestion is for us a way to improve our service. We hope to see you again Roma Starbike Team
A beautiful outdoor glimpse into Rome's storied accomplished historical journey.
Ed_N, Apr 2024
From beginning to end, the tour was a fascinating view of pieces of Rome's accomplished history: the Appia Antica, aqueducts, catacombs, tombs and the beautifully protected historical green spaces/farms/vineyards etc. Our guide, Ricardo, was prepared, informative, attentive and obviously loves sharing his historical knowledge with participants. We highly recommend this tour. Just be aware that there are some mild/intermediate physical challenges along the way.
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Dear Ed, thanks for your kind feedback. We are glad that you had an amazing experience with us and with our guide Riccardo. We hope you can join one of our tours soon again Roma Starbike Team
