The best way to see & experience Rome in the shortest possible time.

Our guide had an enormous knowledge of Rome and it's history. He made our tour enjoyable and exciting. Driving around town and stopping periodically for historical perspective was the best. At times we would park and enjoy the beautiful vistas that ROME offers. We would not have been able to experience Trastevere as we did, without seeing it from a Segway.

Best way to see Trastevere

Great fun touring Trastevere with Julia from Rex tours. She's awesome and extremely knowledgeable of the area. There is so much to see and do in Trastevere. We covered a lot of ground on the segway in very short order. Trastevere is much less touristy and a hidden gem just outside Rome proper. You don't want to miss it.

So much fun and great tour guides

Segways are the best fun and a great way to see the area. The two brothers that run this tour are so helpful and friendly. Definitely recommend booking this tour to get away from the city centre and see different things.

Fantastic guide! Great way to see Roma, without getting tired walking

We had a great experience, our guide Quentin was fantastic, a nice guy with a great wealth of knowledge! Romes cobbled streets can be quite challenging to walk so the Segway made things a whole lot easier.

Great gift!

Purchased this as a birthday gift for my son and his girlfriend to enjoy on their trip to Rome. They loved it!
