    Excellent Catacomb Tour
    Maryanne_S, June 2023
    Excellent tour of Roman Catacombs. A+ Transportation very nice. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot
    The guide makes the difference!!
    Eric_P, May 2023
    This fantastic experience was made even better by our guide, Paul. He was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Rome and had very relevant insights that connected many of the dots of the Catacombs. If you can do this tour and ask for Paul, do it. You will not regret it!
    Fascinating! Go for it!
    Barbara_P, May 2023
    Great tour of a fascinating aspect of Rome’s history, with a knowledgeable guide. Important to note there is a minivan transfer from the meeting point to the site - hold on to your hat;) Highly recommend!
    Must do!
    Zeba_M, May 2023
    This was a really interesting and memorable tour! I’m really glad we chose to do the small group tour; I would have felt claustrophobic inside the catacombs with a larger group. Our tour guide Lorenzo was excellent! He was knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining.
    Domitila Catacombs
    Lissette_G, May 2023
    It was interesting to learn the history. The frescoes were impressive. This was a good way to get catacombs off my bucket list.
    Terri_M, May 2023
    Wonderful customer service! So easy to work with and the guide was very knowledgeable! Would for sure use this company again
    Catacombs were fascinating!
    Julie_K, May 2023
    Our tour guide ( name starting with A-- sorry) did a great job at Catacombe Santa Domtilla 5/13/23 9 am. It was fascinating for our family. Highly recommend!. Thank you!
    A disappointing experience.
    Harry_S, May 2023
    Tour started late, an hour after advertised. I then was quite rushed and cut short due to some customers needing to get to other pre booked tours. The tour guide was also somewhat condescending and aloof.
    Great tour
    Yolanda_M, May 2023
    No photos allowed inside but the historical narrative, the dark and cool lower levels of the catacombs will last you a life time.
    Interesting tour
    Joann_A, Apr 2023
    Good tour - enjoyed learning about the history. It was a good tour but I don't like this survey forcing me to say more.
    A Positive Experience
    Patricia_D, Apr 2023
    Lorenzo was a wonderful guide. He was knowledgable as well as funny and entertaining. It was interesting for me as well as my 11 year old son. Both adults and children would enjoy this tour. It wasn't too long and the pace of the tour was good as well.
    Interesting little tour
    Buford_S, Apr 2023
    Interesting tour. One of those tours I had to do just to see. Guide was really knowledgeable and informative
    Try it
    Mary_S, Mar 2023
    Our guide, Paul, was wonderful. He had such a knowledgeable background on Roman history and the catacombs that many of us admitted we had no idea of the uniqueness of this. The van transportation was a bonus otherwise, it may have been more difficult to get there. If have have any degree of claustrophobia, this would not be a your doe you as the majority is underground. We personally did not plan enough time for the above ground gardens.
    Perfect amount of time to see the catacombs
    D_A, Mar 2023
    We enjoyed this tour. It was very informative and just the right amount of time to see the catacombs and understand their history. The restroom facilities at the tour office could use improvement, but they were very good at the catacombs site.
    Great Tour!
    Bruce_H, Mar 2023
    Sam was an excellent guide! Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to understand the catacombs out side of Rome.
    Great tour of the catacombs
    Leigh_B, Mar 2023
    Great tour of the catacombs. This was the first tour we booked for our trip to Rome and it did not disappoint! We were picked up at the Touriks office and transported to the catacombs (maybe 15 min away) in a comfortable, clean Mercedes sprinter. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour.
    Jeffrey_D, Mar 2023
    The history behind the Catacombs was so very interesting and the tour was phenomenal! Our tour guide was so very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this tour.
    Awesome venue!
    Amalia_K, Mar 2023
    The catacombs were a must see venue. We went on Sunday morning with little traffic and experienced a “personalized”guided tour with our multilingual tour guide. Very educational and spiritual, learning much about how Rome buried its dead in one of many sites.
    Be Careful Booking from Touriks
    Robert_L, Jan 2023
    We had a bus accident (Bus 85, out of Rome Termini, on 20 Jan, 2023), with pictures to show it, so we arrived after the tour had departed. At a minimum, I assumed we'd be given a future date, but no - they just wanted our money and would not even try to accommodate us, despite having plenty of openings for the next few weeks. Probably best not to use these guys (Touriks) unless you intend to arrive an hour or so early. As it is, we have reported this to Viator, and if this dispute is resolved in a responsible manner, I will happily pull down this review and write something positive about Touriks.
    Fantastic! Well worth doing.
    Lindsay_B, Nov 2022
    Max was a fantastic tour guide. Hugely knowledgeable and engaging. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and were also impressed by the organisation from the company.
