Our family of 5 with children ages 15, 12 and 10 really enjoyed the golf cart tour around the city. Eugene did a great job interacting with the kids and asking them questions. He also tailored the tour to our interests. My wife and I have toured the city in one day on a previous tour; I can say the golf cart is an ideal way to see the city allowing flexibility to go anywhere. One of my favorites of the 3.5 hours was visiting a park above the city with a view of all of Rome.

Guide Melanie picked me up from an agreed meeting point and convinced me with her well-founded specialist knowledge. At different points of the tour, she had different media at her disposal with which she could visually represent the original condition of the antiquities.

Eugene was awesome!! the tour was great!! He was super friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable. Even the kids loved him.. Also by the end of our tour he picked a restaurant for us and made the reservation. definitely worth the money.

Top service from AZ from our guide Roberto. Start with a question about individual wishes. Exciting background information given in perfect German. A great start to Rome and the golf cart was a hit!
