What people are saying about Spanish Steps

My partner and I had such an amazing time! We originally had a group tour but the others cancelled so it ended up being a private tour which I highly recommend! We were able to make more stops and got a more personalized tour. Our tour guide was so kind and fun! I HIGHLY recommend this

We had the best time on this tour! Our guide was incredible and full of knowledge. He showed us so many wonderful places in and around Rome. His English was perfect and very easy to understand. Safety of his passengers was top priority for him. Hands down a must do of Rome.

Our host was very friendly and helpful. It was a really fun, easier than expected experience and I would definitely give segways another go in the future.

Such a fun experience! Ahmid was a delight and full of fun information! With this crazy heat wave, the breeze from riding on the Segway was delightful :)

Ahmed, is so attentive, professional and caring - friendly but not too familiar - we enjoyed the experience a lot. Thank you Ahmed !
