Great tour!
This tour was great! Our tour guide Ahmed was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He gave us a lot of fun facts about Rome and Villa Borghese. His priority was our safety during the whole activity. The tour was very safe. It was our first time riding a Segway and we got the hang of it pretty quickly. The scenery/views during the tour were great. Thank you again for the great experience!
