Great tour. We were the only people on the tour so essentially ended up with a private tour which was a nice bonus. We got a good little training session to ensure we felt comfortable on the Segway before we set off. Stacy was very friendly and knowledgeable, and offered us a slightly different tour route to show us parts of Rome that were a bit off the beaten track. Would highly recommend.

We loved our tour! Everyone involved was really welcoming. There were two guides on our tour and they were both great. One is there for security and the other is there for history. We felt very safe while riding our segways and got a great overview of some of the archeology of Rome. Our tour guide even wrote down recommendations for us when we told her we were going to Naples as she is from there! Great experience, we highly recommend!

Fantastisk tur rundt i Rom med en yderst sød og meget kompetent guide. Vi fik set en række af de kendte seværdigheder, men vi blev også guidet hen til mere "hemmelige" og mere ukendte steder i Rom. Alt i alt en super oplevelse. Vi var 4 personer 2 voksne og 2 børn på 17 år, som også var ellevilde med det. 10 stjerner herfra.
