    While our tour guide is not to fault, this tour was not at all what we expected. We thought it would be a tour of the many beautifully decorated streets and buildings, but it was more of a “best of” your with some Christmas comments thrown in. Not what we wanted for Christmas Eve.

    Georgio was fabulous! This tour was perfect! We started in the market with tastings of pesto sand different sauces, truffle, artichoke, spicy salami, then spirits Limonocello, Sam Jc a etc. we wandered the alleys and squares and tried foods from bruschetta with salamis, pizza from one of the oldest establishments in Rome,beer, wine, roman artichokes, suppli arancini and more! Topped it off with gelato!

    Tour was excellent. Enjoyed a casual evening walk around the streets with a very experienced guide. Information about Rome and it's highlights gave a greater insight into what we were seeing.

    It was nice to see so many people out and about in Rome on Christmas Day. Coming from the U.S., there is typically nothing open and many restaurants and shops were open during our tour. The tour started out slow with the tour guide going into much detail about buildings and artists and we would have enjoyed it being more walking and site seeing of the Christmas decorations and lights. By the time we got to the end of the tour, almost half the group had left the tour guide because it was too slow.

    This was the family's favorite tour. Amelia is a gem and so very informative. We saw so many incredible old and ancient landmarks and heard so many stories. And walked so many miles. Each stop was incredibly interesting.

    Find a way to improve this tour. You should communique when you booked the tour that on Christmas Day the Public transportation in Rome stops from 13:00 to 17:00 , that alternative transportation is need it. All the streets of Roma are so crowd on this day, it was very difficult to keep the group together.
