    Alex was great. The tour really help the kids stay engaged. I had 2 11 year olds and one 17 year old.

    The Percy Jackson tour was perfect for our son (7) and also for our young daughter (4). Our guide was engaging with the kids the entire time and very knowledgeable about the history of Rome and incorporating it with Roman mythology. It was a unique tour which our kids loved.

    Maria was the best tour guide we had all week. She is knowledgeable, engaging, and fun. My kids were excited and actively participated throughout the entire visit. We all left with an increased love of mythology....even my 14 year old who has devoured all information she can find on mythology since she was 9.

    Simone was an excellent guide with a great deal of knowledge and insight into the history and historical sights in Rome. The tour was an absolutely inspired way of seeing the capitoline museum with children. My son was really engaged. Simone really new her Percy Jackson as well.

    This was my kids absolute favorite activity we did in Rome. My son has read all the books so when I heard about it I figured it was worth a try. This was a basically private tour of the Capitoline museums. I had never been and I was surprised by how much my husband and I also enjoyed this tour. A must if you have a child who likes Percy Jackson. But even my younger son who hasn’t read the books was completely engaged the entire time. I would recommend this tour to anyone with kids. Alex is phenomenal!! So engaging and personable! She made the whole tour into a game. But we learned so much at the same time. It was really one of the best experiences in Rome. No question.

    My 10-year old son thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Valeria was amazing and kept him interested and involved. He would have been bored if we had just taken him to the museum, but Valeria brought it to life and he learned so much!
