Lloyd M.Chicago, IL, United States
Roberto was fantastic!! (With on-time pick-up at Hotel!) He LOVES his Rome and is excited to share it with you. The Golf Cart Tour is the best way to see the most of Rome in the shortest period of time. Roberto knows every side street and small passage in Rome and can quickly take you to many places avoiding much traffic! Roberto is very kind and funny, and worked well with 2 in our group who do not walk well or far! We highly recommend Roberto!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lloyd, It's been my pleasure meeting you and spend the day with you, hope you guys are back home safe and with good memories of Rome and Roberto. Ciao a presto!
Ian SeebergUnited States
Had the extreme pleasure of meeting Roberto C. and having him take us on a tour of Rome via golf cart. For us, it was a must tour and the best way to see the city! For 4 hours we zipped in and out of incredibly narrow, ancient alleys, visited wonderful out of the way places, parked anywhere we chose to stop and, on a very hot day, did it all in cool comfort. Roberto is a native of Rome, so knowledgeable and personable, his love for his city was charming and nothing short of infectious.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ian, Thank you very much for your time and the great review posted. I'll be looking forward to seeing you soon and explore other sites in Rome. Have a great Summer season, Roberto
Michael HughesUnited States
When have been to Rome many times and thought a golf cart tour would be a unique way to seeing the city. It sure was. Roberto got us into places where cars can not go and brought us near the many tourist locations. He pointed out many things we had never seen. He has a deep knowledge of the "hidden" treasures of Rome. For example, We went to the Biblioteca Casanatense where Copernicus', Dante's and many other authors works are keep. Being able to see the books was amazing. It was a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful review! I am glad to know you had good time today! Look forward to seeing you soon in Rome. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Leslie SchaeferUnited States
Roberto! The golf cart tour was a totally unexpected view of many things we had previously seen in Rome before. Interestingly from the vantage point of the golf cart much of it seemed very different and unique. Roberto was extremely experienced and a well educated Roman Guide. The combination of the new mode of travel and Roberto's expertise made this a can't miss adventure to see Rome. Safety in the streets was never a concern.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Leslie and Dennis, I am glads to hear from you and thank you very much for your kind review! Hope to see you soon in Rome and start a new adventure. Have a great day. Roberto
Sharon FanelliUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Sharon, I am surprise to get 3 stars from you after the tour. I did my best for you, your mom and children knows very well, I was patient with you and I asked you ONLY 1 time to answer my phone for a very important issue and you agree about that, rest of 3 hours and 58 minutes were dedicated to the tour. Thank you, anyway. Roberto
Pat ProfetaUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Pat, Grazie per la tua review!! Hope you having good time in Italy and look forward to seeing you soon. Please send my Best to the whole party. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Pat ProfetaUnited States
This man is a virtuoso. And a golf cart tour with him turns out to be an inspired way to see Rome, whether you have been there many times, like us, or are a first time visitor like the couple we were with. Roberto is a master guide, passionate about Rome and its history, and he is fun! Highly highly recommended. Don't miss St Peter in Vincolo with him. He also arranged an evening tour by golf cart with another guide, Daniele, who was great. The illuminated antiquities come to life at night.
Peggy GroceMt Pleasant, SC, United States
Roberto is a wonderful tour guide. The golf cart tour was a plus and very easy to get around Rome. Great places to see and very little walking involved. Catacombs were so interesting along with all the outdoor history of Rome. Beautiful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Peggy, it's been my pleasure to spend the day with you and your sister. I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon in Rome. Grazie a presto, Roberto
Jan FeidelmanLongboat Key, FL, United States
We had a wonderful day with Roberto! He knows every alleyway, road and alternative route to sites in Rome - an excellent driver too. Taking the golf cart, we were able to experience many aspects of the city and sites that would be impossible by car or foot. Roberto is knowledgeable, charming, great company AND he took us to the most superb gourmet gelateria @ Gelateria del Teatro. We highly recommend having Roberto show you Rome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jan, Was a pleasure meeting you and thank you for the fast review !! Look forward to seeing you next time you come to Rome and wish you all the Best! Ciao Roberto
Arnold ZaksUnited States
Roberto C is perhaps the most fascinating and knowledgeable tour guide that we have had in our 52 years of travel. To know Rome from an historical perspective as well as every turn on its main thoroughfares, streets and winding back allies was just remarkable. Not a moment is wasted as one is whisked about in a combined requested sites of touring along with Roberto's hidden gems. He lives up to his title of "Best Tour of Rome"! Arnie and Maryanne
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Arnie and Mariyanne, I am very happy to hear from you and thank you for your time and the good feedback!! I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon. Ciao a presto Roberto
Anita HibbardUnited States
Roberto did a fantastic job. Really knows his way around Rome. Great tour for individuals with mobility issues. Not a lot of walking but cover many of the important sites. Had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Anita, Thank you very much, it's always nice to hear good things from TBL clients and from you of course!! I wish you all the Best, Ciao, Roberto
Ramona ZoccolaUnited States
Great tour by Roberto! Very friendly and knowledgeable! Took us to get great street food - the best pasta I had in Rome! Roberto was the perfect guide, just enough time everywhere with photo opportunities and help in taking them. The only negative is that we booked this tour over others because the advertising said we would be able to go "Into the Colosseum" and we only saw it from outside. Still great tour and the golf cart a great way to see the sights especially since it was a hot day in July.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ramona and family!! I am very happy to hear from you and glad to know you had a great day in Rome. Wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon in Rome. On such short time, we stop to the Colosseum for pictures and commentary and as you saw the line for the security would it take half of the time we had for the tour of Rome which was four hours! Next time you need to spend few more days in Rome and I'll be pleased to accommodate the visit of the Colosseum inside. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Hugh PrenticeUnited States
Roberto was amazing. His knowledge and enthusiasm about Rome made the golf cart tour a highlight of our trip. He took the time to ask us what we had seen already and what we still wanted to see. He paid attention to our conversation and tailored the tour to exactly what we wanted. I would give him 10 stars if I could!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Maria, Thank you very much for you time spent on this comment, was my pleasure meeting you and mom. Hope to see you soon in Rome and enjoy a new experience by Golf Cart. Wish you all the best and a great summer. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Lance LimUnited States
Booking a tour of Rome using a golf cart was a great decision! I actually did this for my mom-in-law who has bad knees. It was great! Roberto was on time, very personable and an excellent guide. Getting to the touristy areas was a breeze because of the cart. We got there well rested as we didn't have to walk far. We were able to go through tiny alleys as if we were walking. I highly recommend Roberto and his golf cart tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Lance, I am very happy to hear from you and thank you for your time. Hope you're well and look forward to seeing you soon in Rome. Best to all of you! Ciao a presto, Roberto
Michelle T.United States
Offering a tour in Rome by golf cart was a stroke of genius. What a fun way to see all the sights and that little gold cart can go where the cars cannot like through the Borghese Gardens, and into pedestrian only areas to get us closer to what we wanted to see. Roberto was a wealth of knowledge about everything in Rome and had a great answers for all our questions. One of the best tours I've ever taken
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle, I am very happy to hear from you and glad to know you've had fun driving the narrow streets of Rome with me. waiting for you to come back soon and enjoy another tour of Rome and maybe a day trip somewhere in Italy. I wish you all the Best! Thank you, Roberto
Many thanks to Roberto for an outstanding tour. My father saw all the main sites of central Rome despite limited mobility. He could never have seen the city and its narrow cobblestone streets without the golf cart. And Roberto shared his joyful spirit and a fountain of knowledge about the city. I highly recommend this tour for families who can't walk easily.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Noel - Thank you very much for your quick review I am very happy about it and glad to know you and your family had good time and a great day in Rome. I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon. Ciao a presto, Roberto

Michael JutsonUnited States
Roberto was amazing. This was our 2nd time to Rome so we were looking for something different. He did just exactly that for us. We explored places we did not know existed and we were allowed to let our aching feet rest by traveling small streets by golf cart.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Michael, I am very happy to hear from you and thank you for your time writing the review!! I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon in Rome for a new adventure. Ciao e grazie, Roberto
Cathy HesterUnited States
Roberto was excellent. On time, friendly, and very informative. A lot was seen in a short time and the comfort of the van in the rain was nice. We would do this again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cathy, I am very happy to hear from you and thank you for your kind review!! I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon. Cia a presto, Roberto
Sandy WilsonLargo, FLORIDA, United States
Roberto was fantastico! Very knowledgable, personable and accommodating. The tour was a highlight of our visit. A great way to see Rome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sandy, Thank you very much for your kind review ! Was great meeting you and share my Rome with you :-) Wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you soon. Ciao a presto, Roberto
This is the SECOND time that our family has toured Rome with Roberto. He's a pro and knows his Rome history...he's a Roman! Born and raised! We toured with two elderly parents and they did just fine. He's colorful and courteous...and knows how to navigate in a golf cart! Surely this is the best way to see the city, other than excursions into certain places. Overall, FIVE STARS! Grazias, Roberto! Ciao!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Ed, thank you very much for your kind review and your time doing !! I was pleased to seeing again and to get to meet your family, hope they're well and wish you and yours all the Best ! Look forward to seeing you again soon here in Rome for a new adventure tour by Golf cart. Ciao e grazie a presto, Roberto
Anne QuarmbyUnited Kingdom
This was an excellent tour provided by a very knowledgeable and informative guide, Roberto. The best way to see the lesser known gems of Rome in a delightful golf buggy, expertly manoeuvred around the city. Roberto also guided us to an excellent coffee stop, lunch spot, and gelato parlour. All very enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Anne, Thank you very much for your time and the review ! Look forward to seeing soon for a new adventure in Rome and all over Italy. Wish you a wonderful summer :-) Ciao a presto, Roberto
Annemarie SalowskiUnited States
A thorough tour guide. He was informative. Difficult to understand at times.
The tour was worth every cent Right on time and Roberto made the tour interesting for my kids I would definitely recommend this tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Roberto, Thank you very much for your kind review and was great meeting you and your family. Please send a big hug to your wonderful little girls. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Debra LundUnited States
Roberto is FANTASTIC!! don't book Rome with anyone else! The golf carts were such a fun way to see the city, I have been to Rome before but Roberto took us to some of the lesser know sights along with the big ones too. Was a great tour especially if you only have one day in Rome. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Debra, Thank you very much for your kind review, I am glad to know you had good time in Rome and look forward to seeing you soon for a new adventure by Golf Cart. Wish you all the Best. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Rayna CressellUnited States
Roberto was friendly and very knowledgeable. He gave us time to explore an area on our own and took us to a great place for gelato! He even took pictures of us at the different sites. It was a great tour.
Mark VanVoorheesUnited States
This is by far the best way to capture the most of Roma on a tour. Our guide was not only knowledgeable and interesting, but fun to be with. With all that the city has to offer, I highly recommend starting your visit with a guided tour by tours by locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mark, Thank you very much for your kind review :-) Hope you're well and wish you a wonderful summer ! Thank you, Roberto
Darren VincentUnited States
Roberto was a wonderful guide in Rome. The tour was the perfect way to tour Rome without much walking. We had a couple of friends that could not walk much and he took the time needed to allow them to enjoy their tour. I have already recommended him to many friends. I feel as though I have already made another friend in Rome. The tour was easy and comfortable. The meeting spot was perfect and overall it was one of our highlights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Darren, Thank you very much for your time and for the kind review !! I wish to all of you a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you soon. Thank you Roberto
Bernadette PriceUnited States
Everyone should experience 7 hours on golf carts thru the streets of Rome with Roberto. He is unbelievable and we absolutely could not have asked for a better guide, better trip and more fun. Roberto, you are a 5 star all around. WE love you.
Frank CotroneUnited States
If you want to experience Rome "up close and personal" take this tour! Roberto takes you places you would never see, and well as all those you want to see. His knowledge of his city is informative and amazing, and his sense of humor and courtesy bring it all together for a "fantastic" tour. Best time we have ever spent in a golf cart. Ciao Roberto. Hopefully we will meet again. Celeste & Frank Cotrone USA tour date 4/22/16
Ann LiningerUnited States
Roberto is an AWESOME guide. We saw so many wonderful things and he was great with our kids. He created an itinerary for us that was just perfect and even helped us with suggestions for later in our trip. Highest recommendation!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Ann, Thank you very much for your kind review, hope you are back home safe and with good memory of Rome and Roberto, look forward to seeing you soon. Ciao a presto, Roberto
Anthony McFaddenUnited States
This is one of the best things, I did on my trip. He is exactly what you want in a guide. Personable,knowledgeable,charming and most of all, he loves Rome. So he's passionate about what he does and you can hear it and see it. Would not do this trip without Roberto at the wheel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Anthony, I am very happy to hear from you and Thank you for your great review !! Yes we had a great day and glad to know you're back home with good memory of Rome and Roberto. Ciao a presto for a anew adventure in Rome.
MIchael NewellUnited States
Great tour, our guide Val, made the day go buy so quick. He is very knowledgable, personable, and flexible. He was very valuable in pointing out how we could see as much of the city in the time we had. Ask for him if you want a great tour.
Robert PennaUnited States
An outstanding outing. Personalized service with a knowledgeable personable guide who knows the area well and has a love of history. Avoid walking on difficult surfaces, long lines, large crowds and really see this city. This is by far the best way to see Rome.
Our tour was excellent and the golf cart was very comfortable. The guide was very helpful and kind enough to arrange 4 last minute tickets to Galleria Borghese which was sold out when we checked!! Overall, a highly recommended experience, especially if you have senior folks in your group for whom it is a very enjoyable experience!
Fritz RehkopfUnited States
The tour was a real hoot. We had been in Rome many times before but our guide Paola was very informed, took us to places that we had not covered before. Going down side streets give you a much better perspective and you cover much more with the golf cart than you can do by walking!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind review ! Look forward to seeing you soon for a new tour. Thank you Roberto
Thomas KreilickUnited States
A very superior guide with a most effective Golf Cart transportation system which provides much more site coverage in four hours than other options. This is a must do tour!!
Carla Ciraci-MurphyUnited States
Giuseppe was a wonderful guide. he took us to all the places we wanted and was extremely knowledgeable. He was just a lovely person. Spoke with Roberto on the phone with a couple of questions and he was very helpful. I am going back to Rome and will definitely use them again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your time and your kind review ! Look forward to seeing you soon in Rome and experience a different tour. Ciao a presto, Roberto

Joseph FoleyUnited States
This was a great way to see a lot of Rome without a tremendous amount of walking. We were able to see much more than we would have on foot. Out guide was extremely knowledgeable and brought us to places that we would not have thought of ourselves. He was a real delight. I would highly recommend him!
John BolesUnited States
Giuseppe, filling in for Roberto, was an excellent guide. We weren't sure about touring in a golf cart, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. We saw some hidden gems of Rome that we would have never found on our own. Giuseppe provided a lot of information in a very pleasant manner. He is also an excellent driver.

Kristin L.United States
Thanks to our private tour of Rome via golf cart, we were able to see much more than we expected to see. Our guide was well educated in fine art and Italian history, and we learned so much from him. He was articulate, had a good sense of humor, and helped us understand the meaning behind many of the symbols, sculptures, architecture and paintings. This tour was the highlight of our time spent in Rome.
Arthur RogersUnited States
This tour completely rounded out our visit in Rome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much !! Look forward to seeing you soon and enjoy a new tour of Rome. Thank you Roberto

We had a golf Cart tour of Rome by Roberto in April. It was brilliant!!! 10 out of 10!! Roberto was a great guide had lots of knowledge and a great sense of humour as well. I would recommend him to anyone visiting Rome!!!
Ketan MistryCARY, NORTH CAROLINA, United States
We visited Rome in JAN. It was chilly but we're northerners. We don't mind it cold. Roberto picked us up in his golf cart ON SCHED and we took off immediately! We were driving in the street and we never felt in danger. We pretty much saw it all. His knowledge was deep and he poured it out at every stop. The lunch was spectacular in a small cafe. My wife gives kudos. I endorse this tour with Roberto...he's a pro.

An immaculately planned tour, from the pick up from port, to the guided tour at the Vatican. Roberto's expert knowledge of Rome, his passion for his city and his work, and his sincere demeanor has made this truly a magical and splendid day for both the adults and the child in our party. You would not want to see Rome with anyone else or through any other means (the Golf Cart is a genius idea)after you have experienced this with Roberto. We very much looking forward to jumping back on his golf cart soon.
Jocelyn AustriaNewtown, PA, United States
Fabrizzio knew the best way to show the highlights of Rome. He knew the important facts and explained to them to us in a fun way. We enjoyed our tour anfd that golf cart was a great bonus
Rory AlbertUnited States
Victor was our tour guide as he pinch hit for Roberto. Victor hit a home run. What a fantastic way to see all the back alleys and nooks and crannys of the streets and alleys of Rome . On a golf cart! Victor got us in everywhere we wanted and then some. He tailored the tour so we got to see what we wanted, not what he wanted. He was informative and personable. Please, do yourself a favor. See Rome with Victor on his golf cart!!!

Gregg SentennUnited States
I could not have seen Rome any other way. Paolo was amazing. He spoke flawless English and knows Rome intimately. My wife and I spent six wonderful hours immersed in the beauty and history of this magnificent city. Thank you Tours by Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Buongiorno Gregg, I am very happy to hear from you and glad to know you have a wonderful tour of Rome by Golf Cart with Paolo my associate and good friend. Hope to meet you soon in Rome next time you come. Thank you. Roberto & Paolo
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Paolo is Roberto's colleague. The change of guides was approved by Mr. Sentenn.
What a wonderful day!! DO this tour, dropped off right in front of all stops, special spots different from the norm, and when we ask about St Genesius the Patron Saint of Actors, he looked up his church and took us there. Roberto made us feel like family, and was a great way to help us feel at home in Rome. Again DO this tour !!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Thomas, Thank you for the great review I was very happy to see that and to spend a wonderful day with you.. Thank you very much Roberto
Ruth CaytonUnited Kingdom
Claudio deputised for Roberto because of illness. This was communicated to us promptly. It would have been helpful to have had a 30min. pre tour briefing to discuss our expectations and to summarise our planned route. We were never quite sure what was going to happen next. Day 2 Tour of Rome took us to many inetesting churches and buildings, but a pretour explanation of their historical position in Roman history would have been welcome.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thanks for your helpful feedback. We will speak to Roberto about doing this in the future.
