One of the biggest highlights of our trip!
My husband, my friend and I booked this based on the glowing reviews on tripadvisor. We did the vespa panoramic tour with drivers. It was an incredible experience and so much fun zipping through the small streets!! We had already seen most of the big attractions so it was a great way to wrap up our days in Rome. The vespa tours are a must for any visit to Rome!!!

Well what can I say? AWESOME!!!!! This made our trip to Rome. OK there are a bit of nerves to start with, but the guys are so reassuring, and talk to you all the time, pointing out the sites and telling you where they are going or doing. They had a planned route, but were happy to make alterations if we wanted,and linger for as long as we want. These guys need to be on everyone's itinerary who wants to see Rome properly. At the end of the tour they dropped us at their recommended restaurant. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!!!!!!
