We booked what we thought was a Segway tour of just the Villa Borghese Gardens but it ended up being a Segway tour of Rome. It was the highlight of our holiday. We had the best time seeing the highlights of Rome through the streets and lanes in and out of car and foot traffic. At no time did we feel unsafe, our guide was fantastic and ensured all of us stayed together and had plenty of time at each spot. It was an extremely hot day but this was by far the coolest way of getting around Rome and experiencing this beautiful city in such a unique way. Would definitely book another tour like this as we had such a good experience.

We booked a 3 hour Segway Tour in Villa Bhorgese and it went through CSTRents where we met in their shop in a parking garage. Our tour guide was the rental owner and he was simply the worst tour guide ever.

- He bullied both me and another family's father. Apparently some macho thing where he had to be the alpha male and show that we weren't doing the segway right and making us go through elaborate beginning exercises to establish whether we were safe enough to go. This even though I'd already done Segways before. Ridiculous
- He never mentioned that sometimes Segways can get confused on gravel and stop if the wheels were spinning and the tour did go off pavement and my son had his stop and he flipped over and scraped up his knee and all the guide did was to tell him to "be a man" and talked about how when he was young he was so tough...
- He didn't enforce rules and let the 14 year old from the other family wander off while we had to wait until she returned before starting the tour again
- His stories weren't very good and his English was hard to understand.

We have done Segway tours all over the world and this has been the only one we didn't enjoy...

We took a tour of the Borghese Gardens as a couple, with a guide named Danila. Neither of us had been on a Segway before. We got the hang of it reasonably quickly with a brief lesson in the parking garage where CST Rents is located.
The tour was excellent. We had ample time to dismount to explore different areas of the park, and even take time for a coffee or gelato.
Danila was an excellent guide and Segway instructor. Highly recommend this way of getting around Borghese Gardens.

Neither of us had used segways before but it's so easy we were ready to go in under 5 minutes. We had the tour of Villa Borghese with Uberto. Uberto was fantastic. Really interesting guide with lots of information but without being boring. A lot more relaxing than other tours - the park isn't as crowded as other spots in Rome but still full of history. We also stopped to see and hear the midday cannon opposite the park. Uberto took photos for us and allowed for a break to use our legs for a bit so we didn't get stuck in one position for the entire tour. Segways are so much fun, the tour was a great bonus.

Truly one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. Uberto is a knowledgeable, attentive, intelligent and fun guide. His English is impeccable, and his wit is to be enjoyed!
The Segway is THE best mode of transportation for the gardens, and there is no traffic in the park except a couple of roads to cross. Educational, fun, and inspiring!

My husband and I were in Rome in May and our hotel organised our initial segway tour.
We did the Villa Borghese Park tour, which was nice and easy going with hardly any traffic.
Uberto was an excellant instructor and Guide who was both patient and understanding of our needs.
We enjoyed it so much that we organised to do the tour through the streets of Rome with him the next day. This tour is literally through the streets of Rome and there was much more pedestrian and motor traffic which at times was a little bit daunting
Segways are easy to use and a fantastic way to see a lot, in so little time, and with so little energy.
This is an activity that we highly recommend.

We enjoyed our segway trip very much. After 10min introducing we could drive these segways safe and we saw all what we expected. Funny and like a privat tour, the best way to see a lot in 3 hours. This trip is a must, many thanks to Uberto

Our group had a fabulous tour around the center of Rome, on the Segway. Easy to learn to handle, good guiding on the way by our guide. Uberto was an excellent Segway instructor and he was a great historic guide of Rome. Fantastic way to see all important parts of Rome in a couple of hours. It was great fun!

A big thank you for a different experience!

My father was our tour planner, so he set up the Segway tour of the villa Borghese Park. So needless to say my best friend and I were a little nervous since we had never been on a Segway before. Uberto explained everything to us & took his time until we felt comfortable, then it was off around the park. Our guide had extensive knowledge of the Borghese Park & what a way to see this vast park but on Segway's. We had so much fun. When we became a little tired, Ubi asked if we would like to take a break and we did. After our break we were off & running again. We were having so much fun, that when it was time to stop, we were disappointed. I would highly recommend both the experience of riding Segway's and our guide Uberto for anyone who's planning to see the sites in Rome.

My family and I took this tour and it was fantastic. A great way to see the whole park and its interesting landmarks in a short period of time what having a blast riding the Seways. Our tour guide was great, informative and helpful. It couldn't have been better.
