    Our first guide left us in the Colosseum and we had to fend for ourselves to get to the Vatican in time for the second half of our tour. The first guide's information was not interesting and self-absorbent. He basically led us to the sites and then the first part of the tour ended abruptly leaving us only about an hour to get to the Vatican by metro on our own and acquire lunch. The second guide was better but I got separated from the group because it was so crowded and it took me about 25 minutes before I found the group again. She was an art historian and pointed out some interesting artworks and stories behind the Sistine Chapel paintings.

    This jam packed tour featured all the great sights of Rome. Our tour guides maximo and one other lady was very insightful through the day. They made sure to engage everyone and that we all understood the information. If you have one day in Rome this is where you’d want to go

    My husband and i were so impressed with our guide. He was so knowledgeable and friendly. I loves what he said to us in the beginning of the tour. I am not just your guide but we are friends. As we viewed locations he added so much detail to places that we would have missed if not for him. I was so glad we took advantage of this tour for the friendship and the details that we experienced.

    Truly one of the best tours I’ve ever been on. The tour takes you to most of the major sites around Rome and Vatican City which is great if you want to see a lot of the city but have a limited amount of days to do it. The tour guides were so friendly and knowledgeable and really told the story and set the scene for where we were and what we were seeing. They are what really set this tour apart from others. I highly recommend you take this tour (and wear comfortable shoes!)

    My friends and I spent 3 days in Rome and wanted to see all the things, so we booked a walking tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny, unfortunately I don't remember his name. We saw 90% of the things you want to see and learned a lot about the history of Rome as well as modern day Rome.

    The only set back is that it is a lot of walking over the course of the day, so if you're not up for that I recommend booking it on two separate days.

    Very pleased with both of our tour guide. Both were very nice, accomodating and knowledgeable. The reason for a 4 star rate is that after the 1st part of our tour - there was 1.5 hr break and the instructions that was given to us on where to meet up was not clear. We almost missed the 2nd part if not for the other guy that in our group that we run into-also lost.

    Otherwise, worth every penny

    We really like this tour. Our morning tour guide, Christine, is terrific with giving relevant info in interesting and fun ways. She is a native English speaker and was super easy to understand. She also managed the pace very well to make sure we get to see all planned sites .Our afternoon tour guide, Irene, a native of Rome. She gave us a fantastic tour of the Colosium, the Forum and other ancient Rome sites. Then she led us downtown to see the modern Rome sites and fountains. Irene is the best guide one can hope for .She makes sure everyone is cared for and are having a good time. We got all the info and fun facts we wanted at each site and more. Her energy level is incredible even at the end of a really hot and humid day .Thank you for a wonderful day in Rome .We went out on our own the next day and complete our Roman holidays in style!

    My four star rating is a combination of reviews for both tours within the full-day tour. The morning tour was amazing, our tour guide had great energy, humor and was very knowledgeable about Rome and each of the sites we visited. I felt excited and energized when I was touring with her. The afternoon tour Vatican was an average rating. The tour guide seemed like she hated her job and was complaining the entire time. Although there were long lines/queues, a tour guide shouldn't make it worse by complaining herself. And, she mentioned how the Vatican was nothing extraordinary to her since she works there and sees it everyday. Probably not the best thing to say to people who travel across the world to see this site. Afternoon tour, amazing sites but just okay tour guide.
