“Without question the best way to see Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The gang at Rex Tours (Musa, Leo and Max) provided a spectacular way to see all of the major points in Rome. Brothers Leo and Max (Germans) greeted my wife and I (who is German) and gave us a quick outline of how the operation worked. They are great guys..very warm.

Getting used to the Segway was a breeze. They take you in a quiet stretch and let you get comfortable with the device before venturing out.

Musa was our guide. His knowledge of Rome history was amazing. He showed us all of the main attractions in Rome in 3.5 hours. Plenty of stops during the tour for picture opportunities. Musa was also very good at navigating us through the street traffic in Rome.

Occasionally you come across a group of people that have a great business and are truly appreciative of their customers, Rex Tours is one of them.

I cant say enough good things about this tour...thanks guys for making our trip in Rome so memorable!

“Get the maximum with Maximus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Well if you opt for the Travestere tour with Maximus, you are in for a treat. The tour takes you across the river, down side alleys and cobblestone paths, up to one of the best views across the Rome rooftops and stops off for a short visit at the oldest church in Rome...it really is a wonderful few hours getting you out of the centre of Rome and into a local neighbourhood. All of this whilst you are flying up hills and along roadways with minimal effort. What could be better? Max is a fabulous and energetic tour guide who enjoys the opportunity to regale you with stories and one-liners but is very thorough when it comes to safety and keeping the group organised. We heartily recommend this tour for people of all age groups. You will love it!

“Great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Max was awesome!!! Tons of fun vast amount of knowledge, kinda felt like we were cheating -riding the Segway through the sites of Rome was just too easy. Almost felt bad for the people walking through the heat of mid July......almost. Great way to see the sites!!! Highly recommend.

“Max was great with tidbits of information”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I did the trastevere tour with Max. The tour started off a bit slow because Max had to go over instructions on how to use a Segway. But once we are on our way it was a lot of fun zipping through the city (especially uphill) on the Segway.

Our group was only 4 people so it was very intimate so I thought that was very nice. Max was very knowledgeable and entertaining which made the trip that much more enjoyable.

Highly recommended.

“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Leo has a fun friendly set up here. We had a great afternoon tour out and about with Moussa in a group of 5 the day after our booked evening tour was cancelled by the (unseasonal) rain. Fun, enjoyable, interesting, informative and an all round memorable tour around Rome. No hesitation to 5* this activity and if you are thinking of a Segway trip then we doubt if you will do better anywhere else. If you are going to Rome and not planning a Segway session then rethink now or regret the missed opportunity for a long time.
