Rome is certainly an overwhelming city in terms of history. Using the Segways and having the knowledgable and amiable Leo as our guide, my family and I were able to cover 10 times the amount of areas and history in comparison to walking. It was a ton of fun and very informative. Definitely worth the money. With only 5 days here, this tour really gave us an in-depth look at the majority of notable Roman sites. Lastly, Leo's knowledge of the city allowed him to give us little fun facts here and there that are not found in the books we read. I would indeed recommend this to anyone visiting this wonderful city.

Dear MHG24,

thank you for your nice review.
Segways are the best solution for a short visit in Rome. As you could experience the Segways allow you to cover a lot of ground without any effort :) To combine the ancient history of Rome with such a modern transporter is a perfect match! Fun is guaranteed.
Thank you again for your recommendation.
All the best.
Leo

Me and my fiance were welcomed by Leo, which is a very friendly guy. We were in a hurry to get there in time, so we just picked something to eat from campo dei fiori. He said we shouldn't rush, and made sure we finish eating first. His brother Max also offered us a cup of coffee from a nearby shop, without charge. Leo is great ! He took us for a short training course on the segway, and then we went in for the tour. He always made sure we are safe. Leo seems to know so much about Rome. He really likes it, and wanted us to like it too. He gave very good explanations and made sure we understand everything. When it got late, it became a bit cold. He gave us jackets, and at one point he even offered his own for my fiance which was very cold. He also said that if it's too cold for us, we could postpone the rest to another day. After we finished we had a nice talk, and he recommended some place to eat, since he is a chef. The restaurant that he recommended was great, and we also saw his brother Max there, he saw us and congratulated us for our engagement. Those guys are awesome, I'm happy that I chose to see rome with them on my first day, and would recommend it to anyone !

Thank Guy A

Dear Guy,

thank you very much for your enthusiastic review and for posting the beautiful pictures. It has been a special Rome by Night-Tour for me as you got engaged on this rome trip. It was a fantastic experience to be at the Colosseum with you and Malka and nobody else due to the cold weather :) We try to be prepared for every weathercondition, so you can get the best out of the segwaytour.
Wish you all the best for your future and congratulations again.
Kind regards,
Leo

Unless you are a mountain climber and are looking for a grueling 3-day hike, seeing Rome by Segway is the only way to go....And you can see basically the whole city in 3 hours. It is a really hilly city and lots of the historic buildings are at the top of a hill. It was well worth the cost for our family of 4 (2 kids ages 12 and 14). Anyone can figure out how to drive it, so even our 12 year old navigated easily. Our guide was Max. He was good about customizing the tour based on what we wanted to hear about, which was nice since the kids were a bit jet lagged. There is an amazing coffee shop one block away...best we have ever had. Don't recall the name of the cafe but Max sent us there.

Ancient Rome is always a beautiful tour and it is nice to see that you liked it as much as I do.
I hope the jetlag didn´t get in the way during the rest of you Rome trip:)
See you in Rome again, soon.

Leo was our charming and attentive guide on the ancient Rome tour. I was surprised to discover that the Segway is quite a complex machine, although easy to use - very intuitive. Even when we were comfortable using them, Leo was alert to our safety and also to the presence of other people on the roads and paths. Our teenager, not very interested in ruins, loved the Segway and will now go anywhere for the promise of one. The tour was a great way to get a feel for the geography of the city, the layout of important sites and to begin to understand the history. We would not have travelled so far on foot. Leo was great company, enthusiastic about the city and keen to find places a bit out-of-the-way so we can have the best views with the least congestion. Next time, we'd like to try his cuisine tour - can't think how you could improve on the combination of Segways and Italian food !

Dear 2Passepartout,

thank you very much for your review.
I really think that a Segwaytour in Rome is the best thing to do. It is so easy to ride a Segway and such a brilliant way to discover the ancient sights :) Safety is very important for us that is why i let you practice for a longer time before we started the tour :)
I expect you for the Culinary Tour on Segway :)
All the best.
Leo

How do you interest two teenage kids in history and Rome? You do a full day tour on a segway. Our family spent the day with Max and we hit all of Rome. Our house was located in the central part of Rome and we were steps away from everything, which we learned after our tour and we were able to return and revisit these amazing sites at night. The Segway is a perfect mode of transport in this busy city. We were concerned about the weather, it rained on Friday, the first day but we had a sunny day on Saturday, even for December the weather was great! Thanks guys were going to be back!

Dear Diana,

thank you for your review.
The great weather in Rome in December makes our tours much more enjoyable.
The beautiful panoramic view over the Roman Forum, when we stand on the Capitoline Hill and the sun shines, is one of the reasons that make me love what I do .
When you get the chance to make friends it is even better. :)
I hope to see you in Rome again, soon.

Best regards,

Max
