An excellent way to see Rome and get both a history and local knowledge. Two of us had been on Segways once before and it was our grand-daughter's first time so it took a little while to get acquainted but Chris, our guide, patiently made sure that we were ready for the tour. Our tour was at 10 AM and the theme was to visit many of the plazas, including of course, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain. It is pretty crowded and Chris did an excellent job of shepherding us through the tourists and making sure that the group stayed together. Chris is an amazing guy that knows the history of both Ancient and Modern Rome and tells stories that are both informative and entertaining! The tour is about 3 1/2 hours and you are more than ready for a cold beer and some good Italian food when you are done! Everyone at the company is helpful and accommodating and we heard other customers talking about their experiences which seemed to be similar to ours. Highly Recommended.
The highest rating goes to Leo, our enthusiastic and engaging Segway guide. From the straightforward Segway introduction very easy to operate to spending three hours gliding around some of the great sights including the Colosseum, as well as lesser known but fascinating areas like the Jewish Quarter, Leo provided us a concise history of Rome in a fresh, exciting way. He was flexible about our itinerary, knowledgeable about history making interesting connections and safety conscious. We all agreed, especially my 15 year old son, that this was the best way to see Rome covering lots of terrain while absorbing information without getting hot. Leo also provided us with other recommendations in the city that we are keen to try. We wrapped up the tour around the corner at a lovely small restaurant called La Quercia for a delicious lunch. It was the perfect day in Rome.
