We tremendously enjoyed this private tour. Our guide, Max, was super knowledgeable and entertaining. Even our 9 year old found Max to be informative and engaging during the 3 hours together. The stop at the gelateria certainly was appreciated, too. He took time to understand what we all hoped to get out of the trip. He covered all our wishes and more. Without the golf cart there is no way we could have seen so much in such a short time. The cart also allowed us to escape a sweltering walk around the city. It was super to be able to take the little golf cart down some of the tiny streets and be able to park really close to the sights. We felt safe about Max's driving, too. We covered all the major must-see spots. Thanks for a great tour!

Jason was fantastic! Incredibly knowledgeable about history, beyond just facts and dates. He shared insights about how events and circumstances came together to contribute to major events in ancient Rome. Driving through these places with him you could really envision what it might have be like that be in those spaces in ancient times. This tour was a highlight of our trip for sure!

This tour was so fun!!! After walking around in the heat in Italy for 12 days straight, a golf cart tour was just what we needed! And the catacombs were so fun! Our tour guide was so welcoming and friendly and we had a great time! Definitely do this tour!!!

Our guide (Sharon) was just amazing. It gave us a great view of the city and help us orient ourselves on our first day. Well worth the money. Quick tip, book the tour in the morning as it gets way too hot in the afternoon to do a walking tour.

We had a great time! Our tour guide Chara was very knowledgeable and enjoyed answering our questions. She was polite and friendly. Highly recommended!
