DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TOUR LEADER AND AUDIO-GUIDE VS. GUIDED TOUR
All of the tour leaders and guides at italysegwaytours are licensed official guides. The differences between the two kind of tours are the price and the fact that on the audio guided tour the tour leader will deliver information live and aided by audio tracks and video/ audio tracks at certain stops while on the guided tour all info is delivered live. Both are super fun and cover the same itinerary.
