    Tom was fantastic in his knowledge and application of Biblical history and present-day archaeology. He helped us with recommendations and transport, even given a busy tour day and appointments that evening. Seeing the very spots where our favorites walked and gave their lives so that all might know the hope that lies in Christ was a privilege we'll never take for granted. To even have a tour of this nature in 2019 is a blessing itself.

    Great tour for anyone interested in early Christian history in Rome. Our tour guide, Tom, was very knowledgeable and wove in historical and spiritual aspects of Peter and Paul in Rome. We started with a visit to an area of S. Maria in Via Lata that is not generally open to the public (under the church) and continued with a pleasant walk to the other sites, ending with a short subway ride to the last basilica "outside the walls." I never felt rushed and we had plenty of time to stop and reflect at these locations so important to early Christianity.

    Our guide spoke very good English and really seemed very knowledgeable about the subject. We were able to learn quite a bit about the church of St Peter and St Paul from him as well as a great deal of insight about the Christian faith of the 2 men.

    By far this was one of my favorite tours. James was absolutely amazing and we really appreciated the extra time that he took to answer our questions. He also gave us a quick lesson on the best places for shopping and dining. He is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. The tour itself was breathtaking to say the least. The churches were breathtaking and it gave us a better understanding of what we had been taught in church. To be able to have a visual image of what you had only read previously was such a blessing. I highly encourage everyone to take this tour and request James as he was awesome!
