The guide was excellent and the bus driver was kind enough to make several drops on return to Rome. BUT, the Tivoli Gardens is not handicap-friendly and senior citizens like my wife and I have no trouble going down about four levels to visit the fountains but definitely a health risk because you have to come up very steep stairs and inclines, without elevators or escalators, especially if you have bad knees.
The walk was a little long at Hadrian Villa and on a hot day could have been a major problem for advanced aged seniors. There are no benches to rest on, no water fountains or no cafe. You should have warnings on every tour itinerary about any physical restraints for handicapped, seniors or persons with medical problems. Also, warn clients about the lack of water.
Please rate your tours as to "difficulty" as in all other tours we have taken on cruise ships. This tour is recommended only for very healthy seniors and definitely not for those with bad knees or weight problems, even if there were no stairs to climb or cobble stones to navigate on (there were many)
