This has got to be the best way to see the sights of ancient Rome. Don't be put off by the Segway. After fifteen minutes of detailed instruction and a bit of practice we were confidently swishing our way around the Forum, Colosseum etc. It is quite hilly in this area of Rome and the Segway certainly made it easier than struggling around on foot.
Our Segway Tour was wonderful. By chance it was booked on a Sunday which was wonderful as some of the streets are closed to traffic so we had open streets to ride on. Tour guide was very informative and patient. Overall a wonderful experience and lots of fun for all of us.
After a 12 hour air flight our first tour of 17 we had booked was the Segway tour of Rome... Being that we were tired this was the perfect way to start our vacation. Not only were riding the Segways fun but the 3 hr tour around Rome was educational and gave us highlights of what to expect... We highly recommend this!
This was a wonderful experience, combining a fantastic guided tour of the ancient district of Rome with riding on segways through the crowded streets and thoroughfares. One of our group was over 70 and had no problem with the segway! Our guide was brilliant and the tour took in many sites, at the same time as frequent audio updates from our guide kept the group together and we were given plenty of context to what we were seeing, including video footage on her iPad. The pace was good with several 'rest' breaks. I cannot rate this tour highly enough - it's an absolute must for any visitor to Rome.
This tour was totally awesome! It was a lot of fun and the staff was very informative and great! I do highly recommend this tour. You have to see Rome by Segway! It's a great experience and lots of fun! Worth every cent!!!
excellent loved it! would have been nice to inc trevi fountain and spanish steps
An awesome way to learn about the city. The Segway is a very intuitive device and our tour guide was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to get an understanding of the history of this gorgeous city. We made it the first tour we did when we arrived, which provided a great foundation for the rest of our trip. Our guide, Martina, was passionate about the city and very patient with us in the blistering heat as we had an early minor mishap with the Segway and a dehydration issue. This tour was everything we were hoping for and is well worth the $.
This tour was absolutely fantastic. The real highlight of my stay in Italy. Really easy and so much fun. Could have done it all day!!!!
Awesome !! This really was a great fun outing. Guide was fantastic. Age is certainly no handicap. We are 62 and learning to ride the Segway was no problem at all so don't let age deter you in any way.
Great fun and a super way to views one of Rome. We had no problems finding the office - I don't understand why many have had trouble with this. We arrived early because of reading reports re location and ended up hovering around for 30minutes.
There were 5 people in our group plus the guide - nice number. We had time to learn to use the Segway and practice before we set off. Most of the time we were on pavements and crossed the road in a group. We were dodging people not cars but the Segway is easy to manoeuvre and ringing the bell got people out f the way. I never felt at risk or saw this trip as a danger. Anyone who has put this as a reason for marking down the experience probably don't drive, or are of a very nervous disposition! IT IS GREAT! You must do it.
Our guide was very good and most informative. Our only issue was one of the guests with us - he was behaving stupidly on the machine. He kept rocking back and forward when we were stationary, did not follow in a line as instructed but kept going his own route, sometimes on the road where it was dangerous, scraped his wife's Segway on occasions and the kerb, and continually wanted to go faster than the set speed. It did not spoil our trip, but he was very annoying and in all honesty he should have been brought in line early on as it may have caused a problem for the rest of us.
Fantastic tour. We covered so much it was one of the best we have done.
Loved the tour and guide! Segways are a great way to see a lot of the area without walking. We were able to see parts of Rome that we would not have walked to see.
