Don’t miss it!
Beatriz_P, Sept 2021
Great experience! Must not miss it. Different to other excursions, it allows you feel how the city really feels.
Great Vesper Tour!
Gary_W, 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!
Jared_G, July 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.
Glen_S, June 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.
Response from Host, June 2021
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was our plessure having you on the tour! grazie!
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure in Rome
G_S, June 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.
Response from Host, June 2021
Thank you! delighted you had a good time! thank you again!
Best "Roman Holiday" by Vespa
carolinecollis, 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.

Gary J, July 2018
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.

HARRY M, Apr 2018
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!

Alex S, Nov 2017
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

Philip_R, Oct 2017
What a fun way to see so much of Rome! Giada and Federico, our tour guide and drivers gave us the icing on the cake experience to our 4 day Rome trip. Firstly we were able to customise our tour. We had hit most of the main spots during our previous 3 days so we asked to see some of the hidden gems and some of the best views of the city. We were given a unique tour taking in some magnificent sites like the gigantic Roman bath houses to the ruts in the cobbles at the city limits made by chariots riding into the city. We viewed some of the very best views from a few of the hills and rode through some of the the small cobble streets of Trastevere. Giadas Knolwedge was excellent with a genuine passion for her city which we thoroughly enjoyed, thank you!

Cathy W, Aug 2017
This was the best part of our trip. Our English speaking guide was great, he is so knowledgeable and gave us more information than I ever expected. Plus the Vespa's are soooo much FUN. Many thanks to Asolfo, Giongio, and Roberto. In any future travel I will do this again, and hope to book with Viator as this company made all my reservation easily and without a glitch.

emilyoudman, July 2017
The only way to truly see Rome is by Vespa! Awesome tour guides who not only tailored the tour to my boyfriend and I's desires, BUT, showed us and shared some insider locations/sites/knowledge. Great way to take on the crazy busy city of Rome! Plus, recommended a authentic restaurant. Fabulous!

Lito Gusmao, July 2017
Excellent way to explore Rome! We had a lot of fun hopping from one touristic point to another. No fixed route, you can decide where to go. The guides were nice and friendly. Note this price is per person, not per Vespa. This makes this tour very expensive double price for a couple going in the same Vespa. I would recommend a direct negotiation with the operator for a price per Vespa.

Wendy H, June 2017
Our tour guides were the best!! They took us EVERYWHERE, every nook and cranny, places we would not have known to look for. Driving scooters through Rome is an art, and dangerous, but our drivers handled the traffic like pros and kept us safe the entire time. Highly recommended!!!
My husband and I had an amazing time...
Candice W, Oct 2016
My husband and I had an amazing time during our Vespa tour with Alexander and Adolfo as our guides. Not only did we see the most beautiful sights in Rome but Adolfo went out if his way to be an amazing host. Alexander was just a gracious and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!! Grazie!!
