“Rome with Roberto!!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Roberto was recommended to us by other friends. When you visit Rome, work your schedule around Roberto's tour. We spent two days with him and one day with one of his staff members. It was fun, entertaining, interesting and educational. They know Rome and Italy from all angles. The history, church and the politics were all explained in keeping with our areas of interest. Only work with him if you want to really experience Rome and Italy. He is so much more than a driver or tour guide. We can't say enough about how he "made" our trip for us.

“Rome on a Golf Cart - a must do”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

Our two days in Rome with Victor as our guide was the highlight of our three weeks in Italy and Spain. Absolutely fantastic. The golf cart is ideal for the job especially with an experienced guide like Victor. Cars and buses would never get to where my wife and I got too. Victor and our little golf cart avoided all that crazy Rome traffic with ease. I'm absolutely sure we wouldn't have seen half a much using traditional transport.

Please extend our sincere thanks to Victor. His experience, local knowledge and that “just right” level of interaction was remarkable...how can that guy be so good, well he can and it topped off the best personally guided tour Lizzie and I have ever done, anywhere previously. High praise but deserved.

To you, your email communication through the initial tenuous planning stages was fantastic. Every little wish and question was sorted and we never once felt like we were being a bother. This is so important when working from so far away. We felt we could trust you and Gioia/Tours Europe from the moment we first made contact with you.

“Fantastic Way to See Rome!!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Roberto and his company were recommended to us as we planned for our Rome visit. He appeared at our hotel with two carts for the four of us and off we went for 4 1/2 hours of a simply wonderful experience; dodging traffic as he and his associate got right "on top" of the sights we were interested in. Since we had been touring Rome for a couple of days prior to meeting Roberto, he asked what we've seen and what our interests were. He then tailor made our tour to introduce us to wonders we had not witnessed as yet. His knowledge coupled with humor made for a very memorable afternoon. I know that we could not have imagined a finer tour of this beautiful city.

“Golf Cart Tour Was Amazing”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

I was recently in Rome with a seven person family group. Several in the group were elderly, and I knew an extended walking tour would not be possible . And a big bus tour seemed less than ideal. Roberto's Golf Cart tour turned out to be perfect for our needs. We had booked a full day tour, and enjoyed it so much we booked a second half day tour a few days later.

Roberto himself is a large part of the reason we enjoyed the two tours so much. He is upbeat, helpful, and entertaining. He had a great deal of historical knowledge, and a good feel for art history.

We saw more than I could have imagined, and Roberto has perfected his route all through the city. He adjusted the pace to suit our needs, and made sure each of us had a memorable time. Book this now before the whole world discovers it.

“Only way to see rome”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

What an amazing day the four of us had touring Rome with Roberto on his golf carts. We saw all the major attractions in one day more than what we could have done on our own and experienced many of the small side streets of Rome that you wouldn't see by car, as well as stopping at the large market place, to see the wide array of fresh fruits and vegetables. We also had time to travel to the outskirts of the city and see the catacombs. To top off a wonderful day, Roberto treated us to the best cannoli we've ever had! Roberto was so much fun and very passionate about what we were able to see. He always reminded us to view the sites as if you were at that place in that particular time. This is definitely the best way to see Rome and I would not hesitate booking this tour again whenever we return to Rome. Roberto makes the city come to life.
