I've used Rent a Local Friend in several cities around the world and absolutely love it - and this was one of my best experiences! Simone was so passionate and knowledgeable about Rome, and I learned / ate / saw things and places that I would never have found on my own. He helped arrange a private car from the... More

This RentaBike Service was not only very uncomplicated and quick, but also we got helpful advice concerning destinations in Rome and a good price. Roberto was very flexible and we could decide every single evening if we wanted to keep the bikes another day. Great for me and my son!! Thank you - we'll come back. My recommendation: Visit Rome...

This worked perfectly and Simone's passion for and knowledge of Rome was immediately apparent. Our first afternoon was spent discovering the art and sculpture of The... More

I recently went on a trip with Simone, from Rent a Local Friend. Simone made everything happen easily. His coordination and planning make it so that everything runs smoothly and without the added stress the normally comes with touring. We went on a day trip that toured the Appian Way, the old Jewish neighborhoods, and some parts of the main... More
