    A must-do activity, one of the highlights of our trip! The guide was funny, engaging and thorough. Also the VR was an excellent added touch. The guide was very good at explaining how to use the Segway - within the first few minutes we were all ready to take on the streets of Rome.

    Chris was excellent. Knowledgeable and easy to understand, he gave us a great tour of the areas around the Forum, the Palantine Hills, Circus Maximus, etc. This is a great way to get a good overview of the ancient Roman area and its subsequent transformations. The Segways are easy to ride, even for a first timer with a lesson before we went riding on the streets. I highly recommend Fat Tire and Chris in particular.

    Recommended! We had Marcello as a guide, he knows a lot about Rome and the history and took the time to tell everything. Because we were the only two on the tour and there was time left, we got to see even more of Rome. Afterwards we received a map with recommendations from the guide to see and restaurants to eat
