Our tour guide Claudio was awesome. We went all over the center of the city and he took us on a different route since we had already seen a few of the sites in the tour. Was so much fun and recommend to anyone. He also took good photos and showed us some hidden gems.

Fun and informative

I was a little nervous to start as the stegway is a different feeling to the scooter we used for other city tours. Rome was very crowded with masses of pedestrians. But it's easy once you get the hang of it. Claudio made sure we were always safe and was respectful to everyone. He was funny and informative and we recommend this tour.
