Roberto and Paolo bought the first golf cart in 2011 and started doing tours of Rome using such vehicle.
Max and Fabrizio joined in a year later and since then the company's success started growing, building up quite a large and satisfied clientele.  
My Best Tour is now also a travel agency, proposing a variety of tours believing that, due to the experience the four partners accumulated in decades working in the tour business, it can do a better job than its "last minute" competitors can.
The name of the travel agency is The Fun Way and our logo is the happy "Prince Frog."
The first golf cart Roberto and Paolo bought looked like a frog, so they decided the frog had to become the company's logo!

My Best Tour was founded in 2012...

 

Roberto and Paolo started doing golf cart tours in 2010. They were doing their tours by car before they had the idea of the golf carts. They had both been doing it for several decades and therefore, the clients that hired them expected to be taken around Rome by car. However, since Roberto and Paolo discovered the golf carts and realized they were much better means to tour around Rome than the cumbersome minivans, when they met their clients and started the tour in the minivan, they always proposed to switch to the golf cart. Most times their proposal was accepted with enthusiasm by the clients and after a while the word spread out and nobody asked to tour by car anymore!
 After a while another friend, Max, got curious about what Roberto and Paolo were doing with the golf carts, asked to join in and, at that point, they had to officially found a company and so My Best Tour was founded in March 2012.
 Not long after this, they ran into another friend, Fabrizio, had thought himself the cumbersome minivans ha done their time and had bought an Ape (a sort of 3-wheeler Vespa) in which he could take 3 passengers, he hadn't though of the golf carts, more comfortable, ecologic, stable and silent than the 3-wheeler he was using, but he had the mentality it took to join My Best Tour, so he did!

It was the right time for a change...

 

All four founders, Roberto, Max, Fabrizio and Paolo, are second generation in the tour business and they've been touring people in cars and minivans since they were in their 20's. Times change tough and driving around Rome in cumbersome minivans kept getting more and more difficult; because of new regulations, terrible traffic and lack of parking spaces, so they decided to change the means of transportation and switched to smaller, environment friendly and silent electric vehicles: the street legal golf carts! Driving around Rome in golf carts made them feel free! Free to reach places cumbersome minivans could not access, finding little spaces where to park the golf carts and walk to a tucked away little church and show the masterpieces hidden in it or take the clients to a great gelato place that most tourists would not find. The golf carts made them rediscover their city.
Free to finally get back to places that were out of reach when they toured by car. The golf carts instead made Old Rome's narrow streets accessible again and take their clients to discover the real Rome, the areas where present Romans live their lives! Take the tourists to eat where the Romans go eat, drink where the Romans drink! My Best Tour is made of Romans, proud of their city and wanting to show  it the way it deserves to be showed!

Where the idea came from

 

It just happened that Paolo drove his Mercedes to the hotel his clients where were staying to take them on the usual car tour. They got in the car and drove off. The first stop Paolo made was the Pincio Terrace in Villa Borghese from where one can enjoy one of the most spectacular panoramas of Rome but, in order to see the view, the clients had to walk about one hundred yards. Well, the lady said she couldn't make it because she had problems with her feet.

Paolo got worried. He was supposed to take these people around Rome for three consecutive days and, if the lady couldn't even walk one hundred yards, what could he show them? Luckily, there was a man there that was renting old and beat up golf carts for people to drive around the park. he looked at the golf carts and looked at the lady and said: "Lady, these itty bitty things can drive almost anywhere in the city and if I take you around in one of these,  I think I can show all the sites without making you walk. Shall we rent one and see how it goes?"

 

The lady agreed to try for it a couple of hours, but soon both, the clients and Paolo, realized it was so enjoyable that the "couple of hours" became the whole day and also the next two days!

Paolo understood that was the future and called up his buddy Roberto saying: You're not going to believe what I'm doing! I'm on my way to the Colosseum and should be there in about fifteen minutes, if you're done with your tour, come and meet me there, you're not going to believe what you'll see!

Roberto had just dropped off his clients at their hotel and the Colosseum was on his way home, so he agreed to meet Paolo there.

Where he got there and saw Paolo and his clients in the golf cart he started laughing. He questioned the clients and they told him they where doing their best tour ever and Paolo added: It's my best tour too!

Roberto Contursi, (aka Rob for short)

 

Together with Paolo, Roberto is the one that started doing golf cart tours and My Best Tour company. Having been good friends for a very long time, they shared the idea and the cost of buying the first cart. Business got bigger since then, but so did Roberto's enthusiasm for this kind of tours!

He loves driving the golf cart around Rome, but still he likes to drive tourists around in his minivan to see sites outside of the city on day trips or multiple day trips. He especially loves Tuscany and knows it like the back of his hand. He complains because visitors of this website focus on the golf cart tours and hardly ever visit the country tours page. Make him happy and click here!

Roberto has been in the business since he was born. His father showed tourists around for a living just like he does and thought him all the tricks of the trade. He speaks very good English and Spanish, knows Rome and Italy extremely well and he can tour you anywhere.

Massimiliano Leotta, (aka "Max" for short)

Also for Max the tour business is a family business, not only his father was in it, but also his brothers! Max is the youngest of three brothers and is the one who enjoys his job the most and he's always open to new experiences, that's why he joined us!

Max is having a great time with the golf carts, but he also likes to work as a walking guide. He can take you through the Vatican, the Colosseum and the rest of the diggings and he wouldn't mind taking you on a trip outside of Rome to see the fantastic sites just outside Rome or further away, like Tuscany or the Amalfi Coast.

He speaks good English and Spanish, really knows his history and he's always laughing!

Max's wife is also a guide and she speaks Russian!

Fabrizio Bortoli, (aka "Bubba" for short)

Fabrizio is in the tour business by trade, loves to show people around and does it with a lot of passion, but he also has a passion for food! So, years ago, he opened up a Japanese restaurant. Yes, no joke, Japanese! He was very successful from the beginning, and soon opened the next one. But then the global economy crisis forced him to close down his restaurants and come back to the family business and make a living out of showing tourists around. Not knowing that Roberto, Max and Paolo were starting the golf cart tours and wanting to do something different from the ordinary tour,  he chose the 3-wheeler Vespa called "Ape" as means of transportation for his tours. He'll take you on your tour of Rome in a golf cart or in his 3-wheeler if you want to reach destinations that are too far for the golf carts.

In fact the 3-wheeler is equipped with a diesel engine and therefore it operates on a much wider range than the golf carts which ae limited by the batteries' life. 

Fabrizio speaks English, Spanish and French.

Paolo Apolloni, aka Paul

Son of the man they say was the first driving guide of Rome, Paolo has been conducting tours since he was 17 years old. He shared with Roberto the idea of the golf cart tours and started My Best Tour company..

As a young man, he worked as a free lance tour conductor, taking large tour groups of tourists all over Europe. He also worked as a clerk in travel several travel agencies that were famous in the 70's and 80's. Later, following his father's footsteps, he started working as a driving guide and, all together worked in the tour business for nearly 50 years!

However, he's not doing tours anymore, now that the company got bigger someone had to sit in the office and make things run so, since he's the oldest in the group, he was chosen for this job. He misses running around though!

He speaks English and Spanish fluently, plus conversational German, French and Japanese.

Victor Colaiacomo, (aka "Vic" for short)

Right after he was born here in Rome, his family moved to the USA. When he was little he lived in America but then he came back to Rome, and then he went back to the States,  then he came back to Rome, and then he went back to the States,  then he came back to Rome, and then he went back to the States... 35 times across the ocean before he finally decided this is where he wants to be! At least that's what it looks like for now...

Vic is very smart and it didn't take long to train him. He has less experience that the rest of the team obviously, but he caught up really well and he's an expert now. He's been with us from the beginning of the golf cat tours adventure, loves his job and everyone who toured with absolutely raves about the experience.

Renato Cinquina, (aka "Ron" for short)

Renato has been in the tour business 50 years, just as long as Paolo and they've been friends all this time. He travelled around the world a lot when he was young, before he decided to settle down in Rome. He was in Germany, Holland, Brazil and even Australia!
He speaks English, German, Dutch and Portuguese. When he's not touring people around, he's reading books about Rome. His knowledge of the city is profound! He likes to tour people around in a golf cart, but he doesn't mind using his minivan for touring around either.
So, if you like to be comfortable in an air-conditioned car when it rains, or if you want to go on a tour outside of the city, Renato will be happy to take you around in his minivan. Obviously, just like the rest of us, also Renato thinks that the golf cart is the best means to tour Rome.

Giuseppe Gargiulo (aka Joe for short)

Giuseppe is a young man of many talents, speaks fluent English and Dutch, but he's also an artist. He likes to paint and play the guitar and he's good at both. But what you want to know is that he's a very good guide and a very good driver, a real asset for MBT!
He was only 19 years old when he started working with us and often, when he introduces himself to the clients, he gets the "this kid is taking us?" look from them. But it takes them minutes to realize they couldn't be in better hands. Coming from a large family (11 kids!) he's also very good with children and he has a disabled uncle he takes care of, so he's good with the disabled too. Great kid!
He's been with My Best Tours a few years now, and we really miss him when he takes a few days off to go and visit his parents and siblings now living in France.

Valerio De Santis (aka Val for short)

Valerio, just like Joe, is another smart young man that's been with us a few years.

We got to know him when he was working for the people that rent out Segways in the park and part time with a limo company, but he was wasting his talent and he didn't like the people he was working for, so he quit his job and came to work with us.

Like all the others, at first he was only driving the second cart when we had large groups, but he's a smart kid, and it didn't take him long to learn to conduct the tours himself. He studied Rome's history and now he really masters the job.

He likes his job and people enjoy the way he tours them around.

Silvia Rosicarelli (aka Sylvia in English)

Silvia is the only girl in the group (for now J), she's been with us for a while and our clients really like her! She's sister to a friend that works for us at times and she came to work with us herself when quit her job at the airport where she was working as a stewardess. She spent many years living in England where she got her degree in scenography adding on to her Italian degree in fine arts.

At first she was also just driving the second cart, but it didn't take this smart girl long to learn to conduct the tours himself, also because she's graduated in art. She just got deeper in Rome's history and now she's really good at what she does!

Raffaele Tommasone (Ralph for short)

Ralph has joined us in early 2016, as we were looking for someone to work in our office replying to e-mails and such.

Pretty soon it showed that he was a brilliant young man who liked the job and liked working with us. But he said he wasn't interested in doing the tours, he was fine in the office. At times when we were short handed we had to use him as a second driver though, and he didn't mind. Yet it didn't take him long to learn to conduct the tours himself and, though his primary occupation is in the office, quite frequently, during the high season, he's out doing tours.

He's quite a character and he's always making jokes he's kind of becoming known as "they guy that makes you laugh" J!
Not to be forgotten, he has a university degree in English and Spanish. If you want to check out what TripAdvisor's members say about touring with him, click here to read his reviews.

Giuseppe Piacentini (aka Peppe for short)

Giuseppe is a man with experience. He knows Rome inside out and he speaks a very good English (despite the charming Italian accent).

Before working with us he's been a professional baseball player, playing with Italy's National Team, and a TWA employee. When things started to get bad for TWA, they made it easy for him to retire early, yet he was still young, so he got himself a job as a driving guide with a limo company. When he had enough driving a minivan long hours and traffic, and learnt about what we were doing with the golf carts, he joined in with a lot of enthusiasm.

He also attended archaeology and history courses at the University of Rome and the University of Tuscia.

We liked him as we saw him. Unexpectedly he spoke English and Spanish and liked the job immediately. He's another smart kid and it took him a few months to learn what he needed to learn to conduct his own tours, no more second driver for him!

He has a has a university degree in economy, and pretty soon he could become the company's accountant too.

About the carts

 

 

Our smallest golf cart accommodates up to 3 passengers plus driver, total 4, all facing forward and also has a cargo box which we can leave open and carry a wheel chair in it, or we put a lid on it and you can store your gear in it. We have a lot of these carts now, but we cannot let you choose which one you want to tour in.

We'll accommodate groups with more than 3 people in one of the larger carts if available,  or in more than one cart.

For 7 passengers, we use the "stretched" golf cart if available, otherwise they will be accommodated in two of the smaller ones.

When we have to tour in more than one cart, we stay very close together and we stop often to provide a commentary to the whole group.

Upon request, passengers will be provided with earpieces through which they will be able to hear the commentary from the driver/guide in the leading cart who'll be speaking into a microphone.

You'll be picked up from your hotel and the tour will start from there if this is within the golf carts' driving zone. But if your hotel is not in the city center, meaning inside Rome's Walls, you'll need to come to meet us in the city by your own means.

The average range a golf cart drives, with fully charged batteries, is 70/80 kilometers (45/50 miles) enough for a full day tour of Rome, but not to come and meet you at your place if it's not in the city center.

Generally the hotels located outside Rome's historical center provide shuttle service driving their guests to the city center on a regular schedule, if this is your case we'll come to meet you where the hotel's shuttle drops you off. Differently we will have to discuss where the most convenient place to meet would be.

Though our carts don't come with air conditioning and Rome is hot in the summer, it is not uncomfortable to drive around Rome even when it's hot. There's always a nice breeze in Rome which makes driving in a golf cart pleasant. Plus we mostly drive through the narrow shady streets of old Rome that are always quite cool. Even a nice air conditioned Mercedes can be unpleasant to drive after it's been parked in the sun for half an hour!

About touring in the golf carts

 

 

The golf cart tour is not just a driving tour! We stop at the sites, let you get out of the cart to walk around the sites,  tour the inside of the buildings and give the appropriate commentary. During the tour we'll also take you to a great place for "gelato", cappuccino or for lunch. We know all the best places!

We charge hourly rates (the cheapest tour is the 2-hour Rome by night) and we do not follow preset itineraries.  We'll take you anywhere, within the golf cart's range,  you want to go!

Our tours are designed to match our clients interests. The purpose for the itineraries listed on this website is to give you an idea of what you can see in Rome touring by a golf cart Rome in the allotted time.

Four hours is the minimum you can hire us for and you can go for the whole day if you like. The full day tour is the best! Naturally you can hire us  for multiple days and we'll always have something new to show every day!

We do not like to drive our golf carts on the main streets. We like to get to the main attractions driving on the quaint back streets and so avoid traffic, noise, fumes... and other tourists !!! Our tours take you off the beaten path and to the major highlights of Rome.

We'll show things you'll not expect to see. You'll be able to take pictures and videos without getting out of the cart, but we'll always stop for you anytime you ask us to and let you take the picture you want or take a closer look at something that tickles your curiosity.

If this is your first time in Rome we'll focus our tour on the major highlights, if you are already familiar with Rome we'll show you other enchanting places that are not as famous but equally interesting.

When we tour with you to the fundamental highlights of Rome, we drive on the narrow backstreets and let you discover what could be defined as "hidden Rome" and you'll realize that Rome is not a theme park but a real city. You'll get look inside workshops were artisans are immersed in their daily occupations, incredible courtyards and out of the way churches.
