  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Good tour. Gave up early as it was too hot

  • We went through all important landmarks of Rome in 3.5 hrs! Our tour guide forgot his name was very knowledge and talked non-stop the entire 3.5 hrs to give us historic facts and information on each landmark. It is a long walk but was worth it. Our children are 16, 13 and 11. Probably because we just landed that morning, they were exhausted from walking toward the end of the tour. Yet, I think it is worth it!

  • Excellent tour providing the opportunity to see several famous icons without being rushed. Guide was excellent Joseph in explaining and plenty of free time as well.

  • Our tour guide was Guiseppe ( I think that is how you spell it). He was AMAZING! We did not feel rushed at all and he was very informative about everything! If you are able to request tour guides, he is your guy!

  • One of the best tours on our trip!!! Our guide, Giuseppe, was fantastic!! He was so friendly, knowledgeable and really kept the tour on track. I would highly recommend this tour!

  • Alfredo our guide is an archeologist, so his knowledge was off the charts good. Very friendly and personable. Lots of walking, which was fine with us. Would definatly do again.
