Excellent morning touring with Ricardo, Marco and Ricky. We had the best time zipping around Rome on the back of the Vespas. Loved the sights and the personal service.

Great Mini History Lesson with Beautiful View
lorelei_w, Oct 2022
Got a high level tour of Rome with so many historical details most tourists would not know about. My husband and I each had a Vespa and tour guide. Admittingly, Rome traffic was scarier than the US traffic that I am used to, but both guides were very safe and skilled at both riding and teaching about the city. We even made a stop for Aperol Spritzes - so much better than the ones I tried at home. Both drivers were very friendly and comfortable to be around - very necessary when you are riding with your arms around their waist for 2 hours. I definitely recommend this excursion!

Hearing that you felt safe and had fun during your Vespa tour with us is all we could as for! Thank you so much for your kind words.

Rome by Vespa was fantastic!
Lynne_B, Sept 2022
Marco was a fantastic driver and guide. I got to see parts of the city that I would not have otherwise seen and learned so much. We covered a lot of ground on our tour, from small side streets to amazing hilltop overlooks.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Grazie grazie grazie! It's been a pleasure to have you as our Vespa guest!
Best night of my trip!
Rachel_B, Sept 2022
Marco V was the best guide, he had an amazing knowledge of the history of Rome and the stories behind each place we visited, and shared them in an interesting and fun way. The stop for snacks and a cocktail was a nice treat, Marco chose something according to my taste which was fantastic. I chose the night time Vespa tour and expected just a lovely relaxing ride through the streets of Rome but got so much more. This tour is an absolute must if you’re visiting Rome, perfect way to see the classic sights as well as extras known only to locals. Recommend 100%

Incredible experience
Lindsey_L, Aug 2022
This excursion was incredible. I was only in Rome for 24 hours and I was able to see everything I wanted with this. Ricardo is a walking Rome history book. I felt so knowledgeable about the city after the tour. I highly recommend!

We're so happy that you managed to make the most out of your short stay in Rome thanks to our Vespa Tour! Grazie mille!
Vespa tour with teens
Tina_R, Aug 2022
Simone and the guys were awesome for our group of 2 adults and 6 teenagers. On a very hot day in Rome, they found a way to keep us cool by supplying us each with water pistols! They even participated in some shenanigans with us. It was our first day in the city and we saw many sights and learned the layout of the city. We all felt completely safe on their bikes and had so much fun. Great activity for our group!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
We're so glad that you all had a fun time with us, despite the heat wave of these days! It was a pleasure to go vesping around Rome with you!
Fantastic experience!
Leanne_V, Aug 2022
We LOVED our vespa experience in Rome! Having visited Rome before, we wanted something different. This was exactly what we were looking for. Our guides spoke great English, drove with confidence and helped us to feel safe while we learned a lot. Even my 14-year old daughter, who can get anxious, felt safe on the scooter and was able to enjoy her experience. Truly, a well-oiled machine and I would recommend this to everyone. Bravo!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
We're extremely happy that you and your daughter had a nice time with us and managed to see Rome under a different light! Grazie mille!
You’ll want to buy a Vespa
Mark_M, July 2022
We had a most excellent tour with our guides who were friendly, positive, very informative and knowledgeable both in English and in history and culture. It was a surprisingly outstanding way to see a lot of the city— including landmarks; panoramic vistas and a coffee break.

Grazie grazie grazie for this beautiful review! Sending you italian hugs!
Highly recommended vesper by night your
Toni_M, July 2022
We are a family of 4, we had 4 x vespers and we were each on the back of one. We got to see all the major attractions plus some off the beaten track. Highlight of the trip for me was Garden of Oranges at sunset! The view of the old and new city was amazing. Our vesper drivers were highly knowledgeable of the local area and great fun! We stopped at a great place midway for traditional gelato. Highly recommended!

A highlight of my trip!
Samantha_W, July 2022
Had the loveliest and most fun afternoon of my trip on this tour. Booked this last minute- Marco picked me up at my hotel and took me around to see the hidden gems of Rome. Full of great information, I didn’t want the tour to end! Would absolutely do this again on my next visit and recommend to anyone- whether you’ve been to Rome before or if it’s your first time.
Response from Host, July 2022
We're so happy to hear that and hope that we'll be able to show you around Rome with Vespa one more time in the future!

Bella Roma on a Vespa
Hellen_W, June 2022
A must experience when in Rome! This was my second time on this tour and once again, it did not disappoint.
Response from Host, June 2022
In italian we use to say "Non c'è due senza tre", which means "There is no two without three"... Which means we hope we'll be able to welcome you once again in Rome, for the third time!
Highest Praise - Memories of a lifetime!
Jeannette_R, May 2022
This was a highlight of our whole holiday. I don't say this lightly. The option to be picked up was a luxury. We had 6 in our family and luckily no others joined this tour, so it was like a private tour. We each rode on back of a Vespa, with 6 guides/drivers. How many tours will you take with that many guides?? There was one lead tour guide, Marco who planned the route, yet they were flexible asking what we had already seen to maximize our time together. It did not feel at all like a stuffy tour. They were all so much fun, it was like being driven around Rome by a group of friends. They took us to wonderful places in Rome that were off the beaten track, away from crowds and traffic, and so beautiful. The ride was truly freeing as we got to enjoy it all without having to worry about the driving. We covered so much ground and made several stops. All the while each driver/guide would point out sights we were seeing along the way and tell stories. One of my daughters was nervous about riding on the Vespa. They paired her with just the right person and he put her at ease. It ended up being her favorite thing we did while in Rome. I can't say enough, other than I wish we did this activity earlier in our trip. I'm smiling right now just thinking about it. Book this tour. You won't regret it. I will do it again when we have an opportunity return to Rome! Thank you!
Response from Host, May 2022
Grazie mille for this beautiful review, your words make us happy. We send you all lots of italian hugs!

Fabulous way to see Rome with informative guides and lots of opportunities to stop off! The guides were brilliant and we whizzed around so many places I lost count of where we had been. Finished in the Jewish quarter which was fab

Unreliable - never picked us up
Melissa_C, Apr 2022
Never turned up! But did immediately give full refund after I phoned them - but were waiting 20 minutes for drivers that never came. Very disappointed as was supposed to be a treat of our holiday.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Kind Madame, As we told you via phone, tour was cancelled because one of the two drivers has had an accident (which mostly caused damages to the Vespa, more than to him) while he was coming to pick you up (few minutes before 3pm) and the second one has assisted him. Unfortunately we didn't have more guides/driver that slot to subsitute him immediately, and also we didn't know what happened in time. So we offer to reschedule the tour on the day after and you didn't accept that. That's why, we had no solutions but process the immediate refund. We understand you're disappointed, but the cancellation, for the first time ever actually, was due to force majeure we really couldn't handle within those minutes. Thanks Regards
super fun tour with...
