“Brilliant way to see Rome and such fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Having read reviews about Segway tours, our curiosity was piqued and we were keen to give it a go. We booked with Rex Tours and were not disappointed, it's such a fun way to see the sights of Rome. We were taken on a tour with Max and as it was just my husband and I, we felt like we had a personal guide. I admit I was nervous first of all - as it does seem really daunting, but Max patiently spent about 20 minutes with us both, making sure we knew and understood how to control the Segway - and I can honestly say it's not as hard as it looks! Max is funny and very knowledgeable and although we've been to Rome a few times before, we still learnt something knew. We were taken to some of the major attractions but also to the Jewish quarters, Jewish rose garden, the Knights of Malta HQ and parts of the Capitoline Hill and we leart the fascinating history of the Sabians.
I loved the way the crowds parted as we drove through the busy streets. A lot of people seemed intrigued by the Segway.
Segway is a fantastic way to see Rome, we felt very safe throughout the tour- so thank you Max and Segway Tours!

“A perfect way to tour the Eternal City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Leo gave us an exciting Segway tour through the centre of Rome. The Segways are a lot of fun per se, plus Leo's enthusiasm and detailed knowledge of the history and relevant anecdotes surrounding Rome's many sights - it all makes for lasting memories.
Rex Tours popped up on my iPhone Map App by entering the search word "segway" on Campo de' Fiori. Rex Tours' base is only a few steps away from that square. With just a few hours left before our departure, Leo offered a tailor-made tour to the must-see spots we hadn't visited yet. I loved the detailed knowledge he shared with us, including recent research results by archeologists as well as memories of old-school Roman citizens from his network.
Due to his background, Leo combines German reliability and straightforwardness with Roman savoir-vivre. We spoke German - but he would do at least as well in Italian and English, too.
Thanks again, Leo! I'll certainly be back on my next visit to Rome!

“OMG Fantastic night tour of Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We are extremely thankful another Segway company in Rome referred us to Rex-Tours when they we unable to accomodate us in such short notice. Leo did a fantastic tour showing us so many sites all over Rome on the Night Tour on Sunday. Leo is so knowledgeable and the Segways were so easy to use, that we would do it again in a heartbeat. We spent over 3 hours learning the history and seeing the sites and then he advised us on where to eat that night after the tour. We recommend Rex-Tours and Leo without reservations and really thought we got a great deal for our money.

“Seg-tastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

I'm extremely thankful I ran into Massimiliano on a sunny afternoon last week.
Me and my girlfriend spent an amazing day looking at all the gorgeous sights of Rome and were blown away by the beauty of the city and the people.
Our tour guide, Massimiliano, made the day an unforgettable experience and we're definitely doing a tour again if we should ever have the possibility to visit the city again.
Maybe at night next time.
