  • Really interesting tour. Our guide, Marco, was very knowledgeable and gave us information we would never have been aware of if we toured on our own. The duration was just right - enough to give a good overview of the Castel, but not too long to become tiring. We did this tour in mid-August afternoon. May want to consider booking a morning tour to avoid the heat at that time of year.

  • Our Tour Guide - Marco - was incredible. He had a huge knowledge about the history of Castel Sant'Angelo and Rome in particular. He has great personality, extrovert, humor and passion for history. Our children were very excited about the tour.

  • Its worth visiting and our tour guide was great!!!

  • amazing and fascinating place. I loved the tour, highly recommended!

  • Great tour, thank you

  • A pleasant surprise! Loved it! Our tour guide, Rosy Raphael Tours was informative and enthusiastic.

  • This was a surprisingly good tour. More of the off-beaten less-tourist crazy things to do. There was four of us on the tour which was nice. The guide used an ipad to refer to various photos throughout the tour, which was a very good tool. We were taken to the various places where the castel was defended in earlier times by various means and the guide explained the tactics employed and shared stories of the past prisoners and popes who utilized this structure or were held by it. This is a good tour for people who are interested in the defense of keeps. The view at the top was great, both of the Tiber, Rome itself and the Vatican. Also, there was a very picturesque restaurant which was on a walkway, covered in vines to eat or have a drink after the tour. However, as a warning, we had another tour with this same company where the guide never showed up and at first they said the guide was there on time, but both groups waiting knew that was not true, then they emailed the guide had an accident... I also read a review for this tour from this company where the guide didn't show up, so there is some caution to be had...

  • The tour was fantastic. Very informative about the history of Castel sant and #39;Angelo. Rosario was perfect. Her English was very clear and she was very entertaining! I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants something different from the more popular tours!

  • Our guide, Marco told us that Castel Sant'Angelo is not that frequented with a guide compared to other sights in Rome. I can add two things to that: 1 see it, because it is very beautiful, 2 and if the other guides are only half as good as Marco was, you'd better hire one ASAP.

    The castle is rich with history, and the view from the top is amazing. But for us the real dish of the tour was our guide, Marco. Despite the fact that this is a small tour 15 people max, unfortunately for others, and luckily for us, just the 3 of us joined big bonus point for not cancelling. Marco did a fantastic job! He was friendly and fun, had funny remarks, and most of all was very prepared. Based on my previous experiences most guides use, so to say, what is in that place that is being seen, which is by the way perfectly okay. However he brought an iPad as well, with many old pictures, documents with which he was able to show how the castle changed overtime. This added another level of spiceness to the meal.

    We highly recommend this tour with Marco, because this place with such a quality guide definitely deserves a full number group! :

  • Loved the tour! A truly fascinating place with amazing views of Rome. Our guide was brilliant and entertaining throughout! He helped us understand the great history of the building. Highly recommended, just excellent!
