About
We like to offer safe, top of the range, semi-new vehicles in tip-top condition. In order to achieve this, we systematically and scrupulously check our vehicles after each rental. You may find cheaper offers in town, but then, how much do you value your safety? As far as looks and comfort are concerned, we like our Vespa to be clean and shiny, with a top-box of the same colour as the rest of the scooter and a back-rest of the same colour as the saddle. In other words, we value what's Made in Italy! In terms of pick-up delays, we make the most of technology, with your help, your contract will be ready on arrival. Try on your helmets, pick-up your keys and go... Easy!

      The worst customer service in Rome, spend your money elsewhere
      Our family group of 11 rented 4 vespas for two people and 3 solo rider vespas on June 24th. When we arrived, the older gentleman running the place appeared annoyed to be working that day. We later found out someone called out sick and he was mad. Our experience was horrible to say the least. The vespas are larger and heavier than what we were expecting, I would only rent if you truly are a proficient driver otherwise if you change your mind he will have an attitude and refuse to refund money and leave you standing there and tell you "I don't run a meat and potatoes business" not sure what that meant but probably because we are American, it was his way of letting us know his dislike or impatience with Americans. This was the only business in Rome that truly disappointed me so much. American or not, everyone deserves better customer service. As our family rode off with the older gentleman, the remaining four of us made the best of the half day walking around in Rome and still wondering how in the world does this place stay in business. Save your money and go somewhere else.

      The perfect way to see Rome!
      We had a wonderful time renting two Buzz Buggies during our visit to Rome. It was a fun and effective way to visit the city and have the opportunity to see a lot of sites in one day. The renting process was super easy and the car even came with its own iPad with suggested routes and attraction information. We would really recommend renting a buggy, especially if you are only in the city for a short amount of time and want to make the most of your trip. Thank you Peter!

      Best tour of Rome the Roman Way
      Excellent tour. Took scenic roads in Rome to great places. Many stops to see the historic sights. Vespas and helmets were in top condition and our guide had great knowledge of every stop.

      Great Day!
      Absolutely loved our Buzz Tour. We rented 2 buggies for a tour around Rome. The iPads were perfect for directions and information about the sites we wanted to see. This was my daughter's favorite day of our trip - she loved the adventure and the sites we visited. We were able to spend time at several different locations because the buggies made getting around so easy. Peter was very easy to work with and gave us easy to follow instructions. Highly recommend!

      Awesome Fun!
      Had a wonderful time driving around Rome. Massimo was our guide and was very knowledgeable. A great personality. He tailored our excursions to the places we wanted to see and even included some memorable locations we were unaware of. Our favorite was the Orange Grove above the city with great views, and Michelangelo's Compadiglio with views overlooking the Roman Forum. Take this tour you will see more in a few hours than you can see in a few days. The buggies are very easy to drive and get you around fast.

      Best way to experience Rome and great value
      The Buzz Tour was one of our favourite things to do while in Rome. Being able to drive the buggy all around the main sites and inner city streets was so much fun! Peter was a fantastic guide that enabled us to experience Rome in a relaxed way with a nice balance of historical information and humour. I really could not recommend Buzz more highly to people to experience Rome in its beauty, vibrancy and craziness!

      Had a blast
      We rented a buggy and had a great time exploring Rome. It allowed us to view sights outside of walking distance. The 5 hours flew by. 10/10.

      Our favourite day in Rome
      Massimo our guide was very good indeed, super friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the city taking us to places that we wouldn't have otherwise got to, pointing out things along the way and then giving us their history and making sure we were all taken care of (even stopping traffic for us) along the way and taking photos for us too, and gave us lots of laughs. We took 2 buzz buggies and one scooter and had a most excellent time. We had a gelato along the way too. I would highly recommend this if you are visiting Rome. Peter the owner was extremely nice also making sure we had whatever we needed for our trip.

      Highly Recommend!!
      This was an amazing tour. The buggies were easy to use and not hard to navigate as long as you stay close to the guide (which isn’t difficult to do either). Our tour guide Massimo was fantastic! So knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He pointed out something interesting to see in Rome around every corner which made the tour really enjoyable from start to finish. Would highly recommend the buggy tour to those looking to hit the must-see spots in Rome…with Massimo!

    Peter is a warm, friendly, easy going guy. His website link to Rome's must see sites, powered by google maps, is fantastic and easy to use. Though we often found it may have been quicker to walk to points of interest nearby, owing to Rome's many one way systems, it just wouldn't have been nearly as much fun to walk. If you're a confident rider and you just go with the flow you'll have plenty of fun. It seems that everyone adheres to just one rule and that is...ignore all the rules. That said, everyone seems to just get along in the melee and we found there to be very little road rage and people actually seem pretty tolerant. Have a good look on street view before attempting to the find Buzz4Tours office, it's small and pretty inconspicuous. We walked straight past it the first time. I'd also recommend using google street view to check where the fuel stations are in the city, many seem to be just a couple of pumps by the roadside and are easy to miss too. All in all, we had a really great time and highly recommend Buzz4Tours, thanks Peter.

    Great owner, had a nice black Vespa (even in the late afternoon), which we instantly rented. For 59 EUR (no deposit needed) we got 24 hour scooter rent, gas included (didn't have to refill scooter when returning), 2 helmets and were ready to go in minutes. Before you ride it for the first time, there is a check of damages (if any are there you can photo them) so you won't pay the damage you are not responsible for. Getting around on scooter in Rome is great for maximizing your time visiting the places and minimizing time needed to get to them. Although traffic can get tricky and chaotic, people are used to scooters and respect them.

    Quick note to thank Peter and his brother for the rentals for my family. If you are in Rome go and see these guys, their product is awesome their service amazing. We would have not enjoyed Rome as we did if we did not rent from these guys.

    I ride a motorcycle back in the UK, so I was comfortable getting on the vespa. We used it to tour all around the attractions, as well as visit them by night and access viewpoints which are not serviced by public transport. After one of our other plans didn't work out, we decided to go back for more and rent for another 24 hours, as we had enjoyed the convenience so much - the busses in Rome can be a bit unpredictable! On the second day we took the vespa to the beach and had some great seafood without having to worry about getting busses back, or calling a cab. Riding in Rome traffic was interesting, but I was able to mount my phone to the bike and use my usual sat-nav app, so other than the occasional missed turning we had no issues at all. Renting the vespa really made our holiday and allowed us to do whatever we wanted to with ease, so I would highly recommend it to anyone who may be contemplating the idea!
