Great Tour - Excellent Tour Guide (Guido)
Mark_M
, Mar 2022
The tour was fun and informative. As good as the tour was, the tour guide, Guido, was beyond excellent. He was very patient and knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Some of us, namely me, took a little longer to learn the Segway, but he took his time to make sure we were comfortable in using it. After this great experience, I would take another Segway in other cities. Again, Guido was an excellent tour guide and would recommend asking for him as your guide.

Grazie Mark! Guido is an amazing guide, but fortunately we have the best guides in Florence so whoever ends up leading the tour will make it fun and memorable

This tour was great! We ended up being the only couple to book on this particular morning (it was raining that day) so we basically had a private tour of Florence. It was a great way to see the city!

First time on a Segway. Easy to learn and operate. Marzia was knowledgable with a great sense of humor. Zipped around and saw the most important sites in central Florence and learned the important history behind them. HIGHLY recommend this one.

Our Segway tour of Florence was better than anticipated. I did it for the younger members of our crew and I think my sister and I (both in our 50's) enjoyed as much or better than them! Such a different way to see Florence. Super fun tour!

Loved it. Small group with personal attention of a knowledgeable guide. Perfect English. Very safe on roads. Easily located in center of city. Saw many highlights of Florence, and a few off of the beaten track. Definitely recommend.

Guido was our guide and it was his 2nd day on the job. He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I have done Segways in other cities and it was a little harder to do in Florence because of the cobblestones. Also, the crowds of people make it challenging. But I would personally do this Segway tour again.

Awesome tour and extremely knowledgeable guide, Katerina. A great overview of the city with lots of history and facts. Got to see all the major sights and Katerina gave us ideas on things to explore further during our trip. Katerina was very patient. The streets were very busy as it was Easter Monday, so dodging pedestrians was definitely a challenge. Overall I highly recommend this tour. It is also a very efficient way to see the sights.

The tour was professionally run, the guide was excellent and we saw many of the key areas of the old city. But...... Florence is not an ideal city to Segway in as the streets are so crowded either with people or cars, slowing progress and taking the enjoyment out of riding a segway.

We had never been on a Segway before and were a bit apprehensive. But, within a few minutes, it was so easy. Even with the crowded streets, we had no problems maneuvering through. Great fun!
