Know More about this tour

Meet your friendly guide and start with an orientation session to get familiar with your two-wheeled, electric, self-balancing Segway. Once you feel comfortable, youll follow your guide into the downtown streets of Rome.

Glide toward the area known as Capitoline hill, and as you approach it youll be met with the jaw-dropping sights of Ancient Rome. Once the home of richly elaborate temples, shops, markets and government buildings, the area is now a fascinating archeological site peppered with 2,000-year-old world-famous ruins.

Head right up to it and weave around the outskirts of the Roman forum, seeing grandiose monuments like the Arch of constantine and Trajans Column. Hear the history of the site in its heyday from your live guide, learning about its status as the administrative center of Rome.

Pass Palentine Hill and stop for a look at Circus maximus, the vast stretch of flat land where chariot races were once held to entertain up to 250,000 locals. Continue to the Colosseum, Romes iconic monument on the east side of Ancient Rome, and stop for photos while listening to commentary about the gory, yet glorified, gladiator battles that once took place inside.

After weaving through the crowds outside the ruins, take back to the streets and head to the Church of Santa Maria to see the Mouth of Truth an intriguing marble slab. Featured in the hit 1950s movie Roman Holiday, the ancient manhole cover is said to be a lie detector.

As you wind your way back toward The center of rome, stop at a scenic vantage point to enjoy picture-perfect views over the city. Your tour then finishes back at the start point.

    If you are considering this tour, just book it already! It's the perfect way to learn about Rome, Matt was a wonderful guide, and the VR goggles are amazing! If you have any interest in the history of Rome and want to see all the sites quickly you need to do this tour.

    This tour was great! Matt was a great guide and told us things we had not heard on other tours. We enjoyed the virtual reality views of the ruins too! Would highly recommend this tour to anyone!!

    We took the three hour tour with Marco- he is beyond amazing. We learned so much, laughed so hard and even better we got to see all the classical spots of Rome along with a few hidden gems that only the locals know about. The office staff at this tour were fantastic. One of our favorite tours of the whole trip.

    What a way to see Rome!! Our guide, Alejandro was excellent. Very knowledgable and friendly. The use of his virtual reality glasses to see how Rome used to look made things even better!! Would strongly recommend this tour and our guide.

    My wife and I and our two adult sons went on the Segway tour. None of us had ever driven a Segway before. My wife being less athletic than the rest of us was very apprehensive. Our guide was very patient and encouraging with my wife and she did great. No one fell and she expertly helped us through traffic crossings etc. It was a fun way to get a quick tour of Rome. We learned a lot, saw a lot, and had fun cruising around.

    Marcello was so good. Segways were a blast. Efficient way to see lots in a few hours. Highly recommended.

    The tour guide was brilliant with the VR, we saw a lot and the segways were really fun to ride! Had an incredible time.

    I have done loads of these tours in different cities including a previous one in Rome. This was the best so far due to the guide (Mat). He was the ultimate professional and has great knowledge that he pus across in a very nice way. This guy is as good as any historian that you pay a lot more money for. Highly recommended.
