    Not so much ghost stories but definitely offbeat with well told tales that will challenge your take on institutions and their history. Interesting facts that you probably won't get on any other tour. John was very animated and told the tales with a real flair.

    This tour was amazing and full of so many historical stories that we wouldn’t have heard about otherwise! The tour was 2 hours total with an average amount of walking. We got to see several buildings/parts of Rome that we hadn’t heard about prior to the tour. The tour guide was animated, knowledgeable, and you could tell really enjoyed what they were discussion. Don’t let the name of the tour discourage you if you aren’t into ghost tours! Though the stories did talk about real people and their ghost that people see, it was full of history as well!! I would definitely recommend taking this tour if you are in Rome!

    Great night walk with a very flamboyant guide that made you feel very intregeed and entertained through out the tour. I've been in Rome some times before, but managed to see some new things on this tour.

    It was a good tour, but we were a bit disappointed. May be we had too high expectations. The guide was trying his best to keep us engaged. But the content or the storuea in itselfi were not too horrifying or scary. It was okiesh, not too bad not too good.
