Amazing! The electric golf cart tour is the way to go especially in the Summer. We saw everything and the tour guide was phenomenal. He was enough history and info without being awkward and he definitely vibes with people to do what you want. Hands down the best tour and way to see the city. This was a great way to kick start Rome and from there you can pick a few sites to go back and further explore. I really can’t say enough and give this 5 stars. I’d recommend it to anyone and everyone. The golf cart allowed easy access and got places the cars can’t but quicker than walking. Book it! Do it! No regrets!
