  • Superb. Our tour guide Claudia, made this tour come alive with her presentation of the Castel SantAngelos history and features of the Papal apartments, her presentation is energetic, and her knowledge of Castel SantAngelo is excellent. We particularly enjoyed our tour guides knowledge of Pope Alexander the VI and the intrigue surrounding the Borgia family. We were fascinated to learn of the Popes secret escape route from the Vatican to Castel SantAngelo. Some of the many highlights included the secret trap doors, prisons, a stage for presenting plays, the papal coffers, the daring escapes made from the Castle, and the religious and military significance of the Castle. It was interesting to learn of the many uses of the castle and the numerous additions to the original mausoleum. The pace of the tour was comfortable, and Claudia did not allow other group leaders with very large groups interfere with our tour and focused on us having fun on this tour which we did.

  • Very good tour especially skip the line aspect. 2nd time in Rome and did this as hadn't done it the first time around. Only once inside do you realise how large this building is. Plenty included within the 90 minutes.

  • This tour was great our guide Mark made it really interesting and answered all our questions, recommend!

  • 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...
