Owner description: Biga Bike offers great private guided tours of Rome by bike, by scooter and on foot with our official local guides. We know the city and we would love to show it to you! You can also rent a scooter or bike and explore Rome in complete freedom, accessing the areas banned to vehicles! We are located in Via Pellegrino Matteucci 136, near the Metro B Piramide stop and the Ostiense train station. For a change of pace from the city, we suggest a bike tour or ride on the Appian Way or even one of our bike excursions in Latium.

we came to the place at 11 am. came to the place and they said that they only have a 125cc free in about 40 min. we agree to wait. the bike came at 12 and we did all the papers before during the waiting. The tank of the bike wasn’t full. A little was missing and we needed to return the same tank.
During the waiting the guy from the BigaBike explained and showed us on the map every place which we should and could visit. Explained exactly how to drive and where.
It was my first time that I took a 125cc. So the guy trained me on the road near by for free. The bike was practically new.
So we agreed to take the bike for 24h and bring it back at 12 next day.
Next day, I called and asked if it was possible to extend for one hour, because we had a little delay. They said it was ok, if we return a full tank instead of a little that was missing at the beginning.
So I put a full tank of gas just before the return, lit was only like 5 € for practically full tank. as we came to the office, nobody was there, they left for some private purposes. I called and we agreed that we can still have the bike for one more hour for free!! So it is like 2 Hours for free!
As we returned the bike, it was still full tank. I gave them 2€ for the gas that i maybe used for one hour and they didn’t took my money, simply asked if we were happy and satisfied. They man and the woman are very very nice. We recommend them! We will come back to them next time when we go to Roma.
thank you!

I did with a friend the Acient Appian Way and heart of Rome private bike tour! Our guide was Caterina, she is great and kind! She knows a lot of history, I recommend the tour 100% and your feet will have a break of previous walking through the city
Susan also is great! Is the woman in charge very efficient and kind!

Fantastic trip around the streets of Rome with Dani our awesome friendly and informative guide. I loved the breeze from driving the scooter and seeing both main attractions and hidden ones. Highly recommended. Having someone who knows where to go was such a relief. The highlight of my trip for sure. Highly recommended.

Susan replies promptly to emails and also went to great lengths to introduce the best sights to explore using a scooter. Alex was also very detailed and patient in explaining the technical aspects. Conveniently located near the Ostiense station / Piramide metro.
