Rome: Fountains and Piazzas Walking Tour
- Duration options: 2 - 8 hours
Preparation for the tour: v good as we received all necessary information regarding the meeting point very swiftly even though we booked less than 24 hours before. The meeting place was easy to find as was the guide. We waited 10 minutes for the tardies and then started promptly. The guide fast-tracked us through the security points. The tour of the ancient urban cultural monolith (and temple to cruelty as spectacle, at least from a modern point of view) was highly informative and the guide (Helena if I recall well) was authoritative and charming. A highlight of the Roman experience. Let your imagination run with the guide and you will be taken to the cross-over point when extreme barbarity started to be boiled down and gradually reduced to an extremely rich and culturally supreme civilisation. Entrancing. The walk from The Colloseum to the Pantheon was a great time to see old ruins and Mussolini's 'work'. The Pantheon is exquisitely stunning and once again Helena very helpful.
Great tour. We were the only people on the tour so essentially ended up with a private tour which was a nice bonus. We got a good little training session to ensure we felt comfortable on the Segway before we set off. Stacy was very friendly and knowledgeable, and offered us a slightly different tour route to show us parts of Rome that were a bit off the beaten track. Would highly recommend.
The tour was a great way to get an in depth view of the ancient parts of Rome. The group size was very small (only 4 people) and this meant the guide could provide a very personal tour, and was able to give a very detailed insight into the Colosseum and Forum from her background as an archaeologist.
Orlando, our guide, was amazing! It seemed overwhelming at first but literally took less than 5 minutes to get the hang of the Segway. (They made sure we were both comfortable before leaving). Ended up being just us so we had a private tour of Rome. Would definitely recommend!!!
This tour covered a lot of ground from the Coliseum to the Pantheon and that was exactly what we were looking for. Helena (sp...like Helen of Troy) was an excellent guide and she was happy to answer the many queries I bombarded her with. A very enjoyable tour.
