Marcelo our guide was brilliant from start to finish- the demonstration on how to safely use the Segway was thorough and he made sure we were confident before setting off. We got to see many of the attractions all with detailed commentary -Marcelo was happy to go at our pace and he answered all our questions - very knowledgeable guy.

I’ve always wanted to ride a Segway and to do it in Rome was an added bonus. Our tour guide, Marco, was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure we were safe when riding the Segway. He always reminded us to watch corners and where the wheels of the Segway were going so we remained safe. Also he reminded us to keep soft knees so our backs weren’t affected. He was very knowledgeable about the sights we saw as well, and the virtual reality goggles were an added bonus that made the experience enjoyable. A very positive experience . 10/10 would recommend

Highlight of our trip.

Temperatures in July were too hot to do a lot of walking around the ancient sites. The Segway tour solved that problem we’ll. as a bonus the virtual reality goggles placed us back in time at each of the main sites. Our knowledgable guide provided everything we could want to know. Brilliant!
