Rachel did a fantastic job helping us learn how to use the segways, they were so much fun and we were pro's within half hour, even navigating the busy backstreets of Florence. our guide was very knowledgable and sought out shade when we stopped to listen and look around. such a fun way to explore, we will be booking again for Rome!

Absolutely amazing way to see Florence

Our first time on a Segway, we were very nervous but the whole team were very warm and welcoming. Brian was our guide and once we had spent 10 minutes getting used to the Segway we were off. Brian kept the speed and ability to suit the whole team. He showed us so much of Florence in a few hours and told us not only the history but some funny stories as well. We are going back to walk and visit the many churches and statues that he pointed out along the way. If you’ve never been on a Segway, do it! If you’ve never been to Florence, go!

Fun, efficient way to see alot of sites in Florence in a short time

Typical Segway tour. My 11 and 14 year old daughters love riding these things so it is a great way for me to get them to see the sites of a city without the boredom/protests which they put up when we are walking. This tour was led by an energetic guide and we hit many of the highlights of this historic city in a short time.
