    This was the best tour we have every had - PERIOD. This was a private tour with just me and my wife, and consisted of The Colosseum, Palatine Hill, the Vatican Museum, and the Sistine Chapel. Our tour guide, Adnan, was outstanding - Spoke perfect English, was engaging, personable, and funny ( also quite handsome - according to my wife ). We moved at an efficient pace, and Adnan provided detailed history on every aspect of the sites we visited. His knowledge and attention to detail is amazing. it would be impossible to receive this type of information on a group tour. We did the Colosseum and Palatine in the morning, and the others in the afternoon. For our two hour lunch break, Adnan suggested an area called Trastevere - a very cool neighborhood with mostly locals and very few tourists. We had an amazing lunch there and completed the tour in the afternoon. The tour began at 8:30 AM and ended around 3:00 PM. The tour might appear expensive, however we covered so much ground, and received so much information.in only a few hours. It would probably take three days of group tours to cover what we did in a short amount of time, and you would not get nearly as much information as we were given. Great tour, great value, great experience, highly recommended !!!!

    Paola was the best tour guide, so knowledgeable, interesting and kind to my senior in-laws. Once we met her right outside of the subway, she asked us more about what we have seen and what our interests were, so since we already saw Trevi's Fountain she altered the route so we could see something else. She also made sure we will get in the shade, take breaks, point to water fountains, give us restaurant recommendations and made both visits interesting.

    It was also nice to have everything taken care of you, just show up. We didn't have to wait inline at all, just get check in the Colosseum and the Vatican for security but once in, Paola dazzled us with her knowledge and answer all of our questions. She was prepared with her books and showed us pictures on how things looked before and after.

    She also gave us plenty of time for photos. We never felt rushed and it was like visiting with an old friend. Paola was very warm and friendly and we were sad not to have her as our tour guide for the rest of the trip.

    It is a long walking tour, so bring comfortable shoes, hat and water and mind the Vatican dress code. We took a few breaks here and there for my in-laws but the longest one was for lunch and after we met Paola after in the Vatican Museum.

    This was the best tour of our trip. Our tour guide, Thomas, was waiting for us exactly where our reservation indicated. His tour was spot on with timing. We started at the Colosseum and walked right in (no wait). Felt like we had the Colosseum to ourselves. Thomas was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions...even from the kids. The walk from Colosseum to the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon were pleasant as he walked us through areas we would never have ventured by ourselves. He even was mindful of walking in areas that had shade since the weather was warm. Tour of Sistine Chapel and Vatican were fantastic. Again, no waiting in line. Thomas had tickets for us. We were treated like VIP's. Thomas made us feel like he was there for us the entire day and we were never rushed. Highly recommend this tour. Make sure to ask for Thomas. Also, wear comfortable walking shoes. If you have little kids, bring a stroller.

    Alesia was our tour guide for this wonderful tour of Romes most interesting and historic sites. It was truly delightful and informative as she was so knowledgeable about all of the venues. There was a rapid transition without waiting in lines for ticketed venues as she greeted the staff members on what obviously was a daily event for her. We could not have hoped for a more rewarding experience.

  • 11-Oct-2018

    Outstanding private guided tour and worth every cent! Massimiliano was the best guide ever! He was such a pleasant addition to our family for the day. We saw everything we wanted, and more in one day. Massimiliano provided expert, clear and engaging information and background - so knowledgeable about world history, religion and art. He thoughtfully attended to personal needs when our daughter's sandal broke taking us back to our hotel to change shoes without losing a beat. Even had time to stop for lunch at an amazing restaurant he recommended - one of the best meals during our stay in Rome! Highly recommend this impressive tour and guide.

  • 16-Jul-2018

    This was a well-planned and managed tour--we covered many key attractions, but never felt rushed. Marco and Sara were extremely knowledgeable, professional and added lots of value to the tour. They kept us from the crowds, navigated the area well and catered to our interests. We could have one-on-one conversations, and learned so much about history as well as current day Rome. A private tour costs more--but this one was worth it.

  • 09-Jul-2018

    Our travel guide Massimiliano was outstanding. Highly knowledgable and very friendly. This was a very fun day and we waited in no lines. Very good value!!!!

  • 14-Jun-2018

    Fantastic tour! We were in Rome for just 2 days and wanted to make sure we saw all of the highlights. Mariarosaria was so informative and expertly guided us through all of the must-see sights. The price may seem steep at first, but a private, skip the line tour is the only way to see the Colosseum and Vatican in the same day and stay sane. More than worth the money. A must if you're in Rome and want to see it all in a day!

  • 07-Jun-2018

    Really worth the money. Our guide Tommas is worth every dollar. He got us into the front of every line. Not included is a short taxi ride across town and lunch. He ate lunch with us so we paid for him too. We will only be doing private tours in the future!

  • 04-Jun-2018

    Agata our guide made our day outsanding from start to finish. We and two of our friends all from Canada had only limited time in Rome, this tour and Agata enabled us to see two of our main interests in one day and a few more as well. Her expertise and personality along with her excellent English made the day memorable. I would recommend this private tour to anyone wishing a personal/small group guided tour of some impressive sights in Rome. Thanks Again!!!
