“I’ve been to Rome a million times but never seen it like this! My tour with Annie was the highlight of my Roman holiday. I couldn’t have asked for anything more . Everyone should do this. I will definitely book a tour when I return to Rome next time!”

-Carin, Stockholm, Sweden (or Paris, France)

“Hats off to Annie and Giovanni and your team for an unforgettable experience!”

-Danielle, Rossland BC Canada

“Forget queuing with the crowds, whizz past them on a Vespa instead and get under the skin of Rome.”

Kate Thompson – Journalist, London UK

“Hands down this was voted by our family as “The Best Part of our Roman Holiday.” Annie and Giovanni are amazing, knowledgable and very hospitable. G knows American football and will block for you. Annie knows a ton of Rome’s history. Just a great way to spend part of a day seeing the sights. And they show you all of them…and then some. We will be back one day.”

-Mark, Atlanta, Georgia

“Thank you SO much for what is, hands down, one of the most amazing travel experiences of my life.

We got to see so much of this beautiful city, and doing it with Annie made it more fun than you could imagine, her passion and sense of adventure shone through and made it truly, truly memorable. Thank you Annie, you’re awesome, and made our trip to Rome simply magical.”

-George, London, UK

“Really great recommendation for a restaurant from Giovanni, made our last night very special, so listen to him and get them to make the reservation. Find the beer and burger shop Giovanni recommends, super cool place for Beer. We had a ball on our day with these guys, different, exciting, mysterious and educational. Go for it.”

-Kevin and Tara, Ireland and the States respectively.

“Annie and Valerio took us out for a four hour “motorino” tour, which was the most fun tour we had during our entire trip to Italy! I have been to Italy six times previously, but they took us around to places and beautiful overlooks I had never seen before. Each stop was accompanied with fun facts about Rome which made the tour informative as well as entertaining. I was a little nervous to ride a Vespa in Rome traffic, but it was absolutely relaxing, cruising along at an easy pace, especially being able to see more of the city from the back of the Vespa than from a car. Even better, Annie took the time to recommend several restaurants near where we were staying and where we were sightseeing so that we had great options for lunch and dinner! Even though I had a few restaurants I knew about, not all of them were close by and trying new places that were not touristy near our hotel was so nice. Lastly, Annie and Valerio were such great tour guides themselves, fun and truly knowledgeable about Rome. It made the whole experience incredible! We would highly recommend trying a Scooteroma tour!”

-Kate, Washington D.C.

“Mille grazie Giovanni for a WONDERFUL afternoon in Rome!!! Thank you for all the fun, laughs and memories on your very unique “Ape” tour. You are a natural tour guide and a natural with our four children.”

-Slee Family Perth, Australia

“Giovanni, Annie and their team brought us to neighbourhoods we’d never have seen otherwise, (just what I was hoping for), and the Foodie experience by Vespas was like a Christmas present! We had so much fun, enjoyed all the treats at the shops and on top of it, felt like we were touring with expert friends.”

-Anita & Bob, Washington D.C.

“So many thanks to Annie and Giovanni! They are such a wonderful couple and great hosts. They are marvellously kind and considerate; great guides who are very entertaining and not dry at all. This really was the highlight of my Rome experience.”

-Paula, Glasgow, UK

“Four of us had an amazing time zipping around Rome with Annie and her adorable crew of Italian guys! We saw so much of Rome in just a few hours, and a lot of hidden spots which we never would have found on our own. It was perfect to book it on our first day, as it allowed us to decide which places we wanted to see again and to get a good feeling for the layout of the city. ”

- Allyson, London, UK

“They took us to a wonderful cafe for a coffee and pastry(delicious) and we finished at location that captured the beauty of Rome – overlooking the city. Giovanni then made us reservations at a fabulous place for lunch and made a great recommendation for dinner. This tour made for a memorable time for us….during a memorable vacation. Don’t miss it! ”

-Susan, Annapolis, Maryland

“Giovanni was EXCELLENT at keeping us safe. He would go into the intersection and basically block us from traffic and then motion us on through. So do not hesitate to book this tour if you worry about safety.”

-Ruth, Columbia, Missouri

“When I was planning my trip to Rome, I knew I wanted to explore the city in a new, fun way. I came across Scooteroma Tours on a blog that I regularly read and knew this was the one to pick. I was so pleased to receive Annie’s quick response and immediately started looking forward to it. Annie was so flexible and reliable, picking me up at my flat and then zooming all over the city on the adventure. I loved that it was just the two of us without a big tourist crowd. We were able to see some incredible new sights that I wouldn’t have had the chance to see, as well as seeing some classics in new ways. It was wonderful to pretend to be a local for a few hours, zipping around Rome, stopping for coffee and gelato. Annie was a terrific guide, bringing history to life as we travelled between, and at, many sights. She makes you feel instantly comfortable and is a fantastic, safe driver so you can enjoy the journey without feeling terrified. This was one of my highlights in Rome and one of my favourite travel experiences. I can’t recommend them enough!”

-Rheanne, Toronto

“What a fantastic time! The vespa tour of Rome with Annie and Giovanni was a highlight of our vacation. They are interesting and interested, and were the perfect tour guides. There is no better way to see a city than on the back of a scooter–you get the “up close” experience that you have when walking through a city, but can cover distances like in a car. I would recommend doing the tour as soon as you get to Rome-the tour and views of the city give you a real perspective on the lay out of Rome, and made the walks on the later part of our vacation much more interesting. In addition, Annie and Giovanni were full of helpful hints for what to do and what to eat. Very highly recommended!”

-Shana, Minneapolis, Minnesota

“Definitely worth the money to fly through the streets of Rome like a local.”

-Gina, New York, NY

“From setting up the tour to meeting to exploring the city, Annie and Giovanni were the perfect guides. By going on our first day, we were able to get a great overview of Rome and picked up some excellent tips for the rest of our trip, including restaurants, side trips, and tidbits about this beautiful city.”

-Erica, New Jersey

“This was absolutely the best part of our 5 day trip to Rome. Annie was an amazing guide who catered the trip to our interests and took us to see parts of Rome we would never have otherwise. We lucked out with the weather which certainly added to the awesomeness of the day.”

-Amy, Washington D.C.

“Looking for a different way to see Rome without hordes of people, historical views and explanations, safe and fun 4 hours?…..experience this tour. Communication and pick up details were easy. Yes….they even pick you up wherever you want! Only going to come to Rome once and want to experience Rome with history, fun but most of all memories…Just Do It! Oh…did mention there is an organic gelato stop included?”

-Nancy, Toronto

“My son and I toured with Annie and Giovanni in June and it was the highlight of our 10 day adventure in Italy. They were fun and informative and shared their extensive knowledge with us during our 4 hour Vespa tour. A must for anyone traveling to Rome — do it on your first day so you are oriented to the city and then can do more exploring in this wonderful city!”

-Allison, Scottsdale, Arizona

“The scooter ride in Rome with G was the highlight of my trip. His knowledge is so encyclopedic….amazing.”

-Barry, Los Angeles, California

“Our group of 8, which included 4 adults and 4 teens, joined Annie, Giovanni, Valerio and their driving crew for a fun-filled evening seeing all the incredible sights of Rome. Prior to the tour, we were not sure about the idea of riding on the back of the Vespas and letting someone else drive, but it was a blast and we were so relieved not to be stressing about maneuvering the streets of Rome on our own. We just relaxed and enjoyed our friendly, fun local hosts. We stopped at many sites along the way, for pictures and to hear about what we were seeing. The 4 hours went by so quickly we didn’t want the evening to end. This is a great way to see the city, especially if you have teens like we do. And on a side note, Annie also personally welcomed our group on the afternoon we arrived in Rome and took us on a 3 hour walking tour around the city. It was fun and informative and it definitely helped get us oriented to the city and offered us great ideas on places to see and eat. By the time we met for our scootering day, we were already friends — don’t miss this fun way to see Rome.”
