    Excellent Service
    Joseph_L, Aug 2023
    Our tour guide was fantastic and the place we rented the Vespa was over the top with customer service.
    Amazing experience!
    Jini_S, Aug 2023
    It was an amazing experience. 👏 I recommend this tour 💯 the guide Cuma was very thorough with history. I learned everything about Italy
    Something for everyone!
    Kristin_Z, Aug 2023
    Wonderful! We did self guided driving & riding with grandmother in a sidecar…priceless! She has been to Rome many times and learned/saw new things! Great way to see & learn especially with teenagers! They did a fantastic job communicating & being flexible with changes!! Don’t miss this tour!
    Wow… huge highlight of our trip!!!
    Felix_S, July 2023
    This was definitely a big highlight of our trip to Rome. Wow… I had a blast. I have experience riding motorcycles, I do suggest some kind of experience on either a Vespa or scooter equivalent will be necessary for the self riding, and it was so fun. My fiancé rode on the back with me and she loved it. You’re riding through Rome with the locals! The guides were amazing! I felt safe the whole time. There’s also an educational part of the trip, there is an actual tour guide, and you learn a lot about the city. This was a blast. If you ride, and have experience riding in a city, you’ll love it!
    You MUST take this adventure!
    Amanda_H, June 2023
    Listen to me: DO THIS! Almost 2 weeks in Italy and this is the top of the memories. Driving through Rome like this is an experience not be missed. We had a fantastically fun ride, stopped at multiple spots (some more known than others), and were given insights and details about Italy we never would've known without our guide. It all ended in a drink/gelato in the backstreets of Trastevere with locals and live music. Cuma was our guide and he is a born storyteller whose magnetic passion and love for Rome shines through every city secret he shares. We smiled until our cheeks hurt and laughed until our eyes watered. I am so grateful we did this tour and met Cuma. An adventure you'll never forget.
    Do it, you won't regret it!

    This was a great experience! My husband and I really enjoyed this tour and driving around Rome in a Vespa. This was way less stressful than I thought it would be (given the crazy Rome traffic/driving) and was actually super fun. Leonardo was our tour guide and he was great; provided good stories, explanations and facts about the sights/landmarks and was very pleasant to talk to. Simone was also great and made sure we were comfortable and were enjoying the experience. 10/10 activity to do while in Rome.
    Very exciting tour around Rome
    Ishyh_O, May 2023
    It’s was a very exciting adventure around the city. We got visit a lot places in a short time. But, you really need to know how to maneuver a scooter in chaotic city traffic.
    Thrill of a lifetime with tons of sightseeing
    Savanna_U, May 2023
    Whether you really do drive yourself on your own vespa or hop on the back or in the side car of a guide, you'll have the time of your life. It also packs in tons of great sight seeing, both well known and little known.
    Best experience in rome
    kerrieann_t, May 2023
    I can’t recommend this enough it was amazing and fun. 3 hours round rome are guide was very knowledgeable and made it fun. We saw parts of rome you would not normally see well worth the money. Highly recommend
    Great experience!
    Shannon_S, Feb 2023
    So much fun! Definitely make sure you’re comfortable driving a Vespa, because driving in Rome isn’t for the faint of heart! Basically the lanes seemed more like a suggestion! We were the only ones signed up for our tour so basically had a personal tour of Rome! Stefano was excellent. Showed us quite a few places we had not seen and gave a great history for the sites. Would highly recommend!
    You’ve got to tour Rome by Vespa!
    Melissa_H, Oct 2022
    Teresa in the office was very kind & helpful. Cuma was a fantastic guide - so fun, humorous, & knowledgeable. My husband & I shared a Vespa (he drove). The drivers in Rome are nuts haha! It was super fun & will be very memorable. Easily the best part of our time in Rome. Highly recommend!
    Amazing 3+ hour tour!
    Erin_S, Aug 2022
    Our guide, Roberto, was fun and knowledgeable about Rome and Vespas! We experienced the back roads of Rome for amazing views of the city; nighttime views of the colosseum and palatine hill; and perimeter views of the Vatican; with a stop for gelato and drinks. All was amazing and well worth it! Highly recommend! Experience driving a Vespa is a must - don’t underestimate the importance of this! 3+ hours is also longer than you think.
    Vespa Selfdrive was the highlight of our visit to Rome
    Ben, Aug 2022
    Driving Vespas for three hours was the highlight of our visit to Rome. We crisscrossed Rome seeing many of the major sites from the road and stopping several times for views and photos. We were all adults ranging in age from 21 to 57. Some prior experience riding a scooter or motorcycle is a must as you will be in traffic on the streets of Rome. Roberto was a fun guide sharing a little information about the sites when we stopped. Highly recommend driving a Vespa to truly experience Rome!
    We had an amazing time...
    Uriel_H, July 2022
    We had an amazing time with Cuma. He kept the vibe fun and made sure everyone in the group had a good time.
    Best wine tour EVER
    John_M, May 2022
    Everything was amazing. The guide was excellent and knowledgeable. The scenery was out of a movie. If you do nothing I lose do this.
    ashes2965, May 2022
    We were told motor bike riding experience was not good enough to ride a Vespa and a refund was refused. Do not book this tour. It is a waste of your money
    A must do !
    A_M, Apr 2022
    Had an.amazing experience driving rhe vespa around Rome. Unforgettable. If you know how to drive the vespa , it is the best experience you will have. A must do. Ceaser our guide took us to places where we couldn't have seen Rome the way he showed us. He was very friendly and made us have an amazing time. It is a must for Rome. Thank you so much for making our trip such a fun trip.
    Roman Holiday in Rugby shirts.
    Michael_S, Feb 2022
    The best and only way to see Rome is on a Vespa. Roberto was fantastic and made the tour a wonderful experience. Safe, exciting and great fun. We had our own Roman Holiday. Can't wait to do it again.

    Thrilling and Beautiful
    Jeff_R, Jan 2022
    Riding all over Roma in a Vespa was amazing, the different high points that you could look down on the city were beautiful. Our tour guide did a great job of guiding us through the streets and keeping us safe.
    Response from Host, Jan 2022
    Thank you for your review. We’re really appreciate taking your time writing a review. Welcome back
    Best way to see Rome
    jackie_w, Nov 2021
    This was an amazing expierence that me and my family will remember for a lifetime! The sites we saw were off the beaten path and the spectacular views were breath taking. One word of caution, if you do not have strong driving skills do NOT try and drive. We thought our kids were capable after being on scooters several times, driving the street of Rome are very different. Let them drive you so you can enjoy the ride and see the sights with no worries! Thank you to our amazing drivers, you made the experience one of a lifetime!
