  • OUR SAFETY MEASURES ANTI COVID-19 At the beginning of each tour starting from the meeting point, touch less devices will screen guests’ and operators’ temperature. In the event of one or more components with a body temperature above 37.5 celsius (after repeating the measurement for a second time) it will not be possible for them to take part in the tour. The reservation will be refunded in full at customer / agency within 24 hours. It will not be possible for those accompanying the person with altered temperature to take part of the tour. The refund will also apply to these accompanying persons. The drivers will wear face masks during the entire tour. If guests do not have their own, it will be provided at the beginning of the tour (typ.N.95) The new helmets both operators and customers will be supplied with have a full plexiglas protective visor - which once lowered, completely covers the whole face. Each vehicle will have an automatic disinfectant gel dispenser for the exclusive use of the occupants of that vehicle. All the equipment made available to customers is mostly disposable - such as headphones, hygienic protections for the helmets, face masks etc. Transmitting radios to listen to the guide’s live explanation will be sanitized with UV technology. At the end and at the beginning of every tour each sidecar is completely sanitized. To avoid the use of chemicals that could cause allergies to some of our guests, as also polluting the environment, we decided to use 100 celsius degrees steam dispenser certified by its manufacturer to eliminate 99.9% of germs, bacteria and viruses. Helmets are sterilized (externally and internally) through the steam sterilizer technique at the beginning and at the end of the tour. During the guided visits of the monuments to be carried out of the vehicle during the stops, customers will be invited to maintain the safety distance of 150 cm. This prescription will not be requested for relatives. In order not to give up the pleasure of having a souvenir photo taken during the tour, our guides upon request will be available to take photos with their own phone - to limit any contact and transmission - and then share them with you. Photos will be strictly canceled from their phone at the end of the tour. Unfortunately, and despite ourselves, both our guides and drivers will no longer be able to shake hands with our guests - as we all would love to do. However, we believe this can also be an opportunity to appreciate the intensity and spontaneity of a smile..(smiling eyes!). We are proud to offer probably one of the safest tours of the current tourist offer where we will be able to sterilize quite everything except for your emotions & expectations!

Gina_P, Sep 2023
BOOK NOW! Don't think twice. This was one of the BEST tours we did in Rome! The 9 AM tour is great because the streets aren't too busy yet. What a great way to see Rome. I would do this tour first to get a great overview of the city. Stopped several times and four times got off the bikes to take pics! AMAZING!!
Response from Host, Sep 2023
ciao Gina, thank you so much for your great feedback on your tour with Alessio, Manuel and Giuseppe. I am so glad to know that you loved our time together and I hope to have you back with us soon!
Fabulous and exciting tour, not to be missed while in Rome.
Rosa_H, Sep 2023
This tour was the most fun and enjoyable that my husband and I did while in Rome. We were in a group with other couples and we each Vespa and sidecar was a different colour. We were taken to many of the major sites and also through the back lanes where the real Rome is. Our tour guide was fabulous with a great sense of knowledge with a touch of humour. Being in the sidecar of the Vespa and then also riding as the pillion passenger was exciting. People on the streets were excited also to see all the Vespas riding together and were taking photos as well. This is a tour not to be missed, we would have done it again had we known how great it was.

Wow Rosa, thank you so much for your kind words, we would love to have you back on a tour!

Marion_Q, Aug 2023
The Sidecar Vespa Tour was a unique way to experience the highlights of Rome. I would highly recommend this tour especially if you have teenagers/young adults as they're absorbing lots of information from a very knowledgeable guide while safely traversing the streets on the back/Sidecar of a vespa. This tour is a Rome trip highlight!

Best tour in Rome!
Linda_P, Jul 2023
Absolutely amazing tour. Was so much fun and like nothing I have done before. Had Maximus as our driver. What a gent. In fact all the drivers were so helpful and friendly. Saw some incredible sites, stopped for photos and a wonderful breakfast stop. Our guide was also incredible and engaging and my little girl (aged 11) really enjoyed riding in the sidecar. I felt safe at all times and really enjoyed seeing Rome from the back of our Vespa. Would highly recommend for all and a great one to do as a family.

Vespa tour - a once in a lifetime memory!
Caroline_K, Jul 2023
This was the highlight of our stay in Rome – definitely a lifetime memory! Zipping around Rome in Vespas is such fun and is a great way to get around the city quickly. Alessio was our tour guide and did a fantastic job and gave us lots of interesting information – the Pantheon tour was a highlight. Alessio was ably assisted by the other drivers, Manuel, Gianluca and Marcello. They were all so pleasant and helpful – they took lots of photos for us and nothing was too much trouble! The stop for cappuccino and croissant was delicious! We would highly recommend this tour as you see Rome from a completely different perspective in a very safe but exhilarating way! Bravo!
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Dear Caroline, grazie davvero for your kind words, I am really glad to know that your lovely family enjoyed the tour with Alessio and the other drivers. we hope to see you again soon!

We had SO much fun being lead around the city on our vespas and it was an excellent way to see so many highlights of the city in a short period of time. Our tour guide and drivers were absolutely wonderful-very informative, interesting, fun, and we felt very safe being driven around the city with them. This tour is AWESOME-highly recommend you book this tour!!!

Easy way to see a lot of different areas of Rome. Guide and drivers were fun and very knowledgeable. Would recommend for others to do
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Ciao Richard, grazie mille for your kind words!
Fantastic family tour, so much fun!
Doug_O, Jul 2023
This tour was a highlight of our trip. We are a family of 4, and our two girls (6&9) loved riding in the sidecar. The guide and drivers were totally engaged and we were able to hit several of the most popular spots all in one trip (pantheon, Trevi, Vatican, coliseum). The stop at Trevi was great- we were shown a side fountain that nobody else there seemed to even be aware of! Overall, great experience and would totally recommend this.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Dear Doug, grazie mille for your incredible feedback. We re so glad that you guys loved our time together as much as we did!
Definitely do this tour
Sylvia_H, Jul 2023

Response from Host, Jul 2023

The Perfect Way to See Rome
Dana_H, Jun 2023
What a fantastic tour! My friend and I have been to Rome several times, and this rose to the top as one of our favorite experiences. It was enlightening and exhilarating, and we felt very safe and well cared for by our guide Matteo. Well worth it.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Dear Dana, thank you for sharing your kind words with us :) I am so glad that you enjoyed your tour with Matteo, he's a great guy!
Amazing Vespa tour of Rome
Kenny_C, Jun 2023
What an experience!!! For anyone traveling to Rome, this is a must! I can try to describe how amazing this experience was, but words cannot do it justice. Mateo, Marco, Luca, and Manuel were phenomenal guides and took great care of our family to make sure we had a one of a kind experience. We appreciate their kindness, patience and personalities. Their knowledge and insight of this beautiful city was vast as they described each area with such detail. The ride was comfortable on the back seat of the Vespa and for those sitting in the side car. This was one of the highlights of our European tour and we will always remember it. This cannot be missed!!!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Ciao Kenny, grazie mille! I am really glad that you enjoyed your time with Matteo and the drivers, they all send you their regards! Until next time!
