We did the night tour on our first night in Rome to help us get orientated. The segways are great fun, both of us found them easy to drive and by the end didn't even really feel like we were trying. The guide Leo was really friendly and made us feel really welcome - he combined a nice amount of historical and modern knowledge without things dragging on to long and we never felt like we were rushed. In fact the tour went on quite a bit longer than stated but we at no point felt like he was in a hurry to finish, he even hung aroung at the end giving us tips and information for the rest of our trip, reccommending a nice restaurant for a late dinner and helping us on getting back to our BB.
It does really help you get your bearings in Rome so I would reccomend doing the tour early on - I would also reccommend a coat if you are doing it early or late in the year - yes it's sunny during the day but it gets cold on a night!

By far the best tour I have ever had. It was very interesting. The Leo talked to us, instead of a microphone, which was deeply appreciated, and acknowledged. Every description told by Leo was detailed, but not too detailed for it too be boring. The views were very high (but we didn't have to climb, the segways did it for us), and amazing, great overlook on the ancient part of town. All in all, the trip was very educational with fun facts, not the ones you hear in museum tours and exciting!

We did the Ancient Rome tour in the Morning. One of the best tours we have been on - so so worth it! I was with my two teenage children and this was definitely one of the highlights of the trip. So easy to operate a Segway - no worries there. Max thanks for a geeat tour. We will be back!

Rex-tours running tours by Segway thru Roma is a quality operation.
The seriousness about safety, operation of the Segway and what the '3 rules' are, was all very refreshing for a city that takes driving fairly casually.
Our tour guide was Max. Both charismatic and knowledgeable, an excellent asset to the tour.
If you've not used a Segway before this is the initial thrill. Upon starting to hear about the things you are looking at and being able to drive yourself quickly from one site to another just makes the whole 3.5 hours (or four in hour case) a completely enjoyable experience.
High recommend.

What a fabulous day; we booked the tour whilst in Rome via email since my son was a little museam'd out and Leo responsed really quickly to confirm available tours and times. With no expectations but an excited 9 year old view that a Segway tour would be 'epic', vs my personal concern that he was under the age recommendation of 12 and about half the weight, we turned up a little apprehensively. However, Leo was just fantastic, checking that my son could drive safely and have some good practice, then on the ride personally steering him during any even slightly concerning parts. The tour took us to parts of Rome and views we never knew existed. This tour will have you falling in love the romance of Rome, and perhaps also the rather dreamy Leo, a half dose of Italian sophistication and a half dose of German practicality and safety consciousness. Another massive thank you for the best part of our holiday, Anoushka and Owain xx
