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.

We did this 3 hour tour to get to know Florence in a short time and we certainly did. Vanessa, our tour guide was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the history - she made it come to life in her stories and we fell in love with the city.

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!

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.
