Educational tour that exceeded expectations!
Bernadette_A, Feb 2023
I found this app researching tours for an upcoming work trip. I only had 2 days to myself in Rome and wanted to make the most of it. I opted to use a skip-the-line tour and my boss joined the small group. The tour guide was fantastic! She was a proud local that gave us so much history and detail! The tour lasted longer than 3 hours, but the time went by fast with all of the info. The setting sun and cooling temps were the only reason I knew it was getting later in the day. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!! I can’t wait to bring my family back to Rome and use your service!
Worth it!

Our tour guide Francesca had a booklet with illustrations showing the before and after to give us a visual of the areas we were exploring, that was very helpful plus she shared a ton of fun facts that were a nice touch.
Wonderful Rome short visit

The eternal city is everything we hoped for. Our family of 4 toured with Stephanie and it was fabulous. Small size, informative, beautiful weather (65 degrees in Dec) and just the right pace. Ask for Stephanie - she also gives tours of Vatican City!

Louisa was a wealth of knowledge and her friendliness and kindness were evident the entire time. We have been on many tours, but she was the very best. We were very tired afterwards, but she was exceptional. And the tour was magnificent.

Roman History 101 in a four hour walking tour
Julie_D, Nov 2022
We really enjoyed our walking tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Pantheon and Piazza Navona with our English guide, Andrada. The four hour tour was well-paced and provided ample breaks when needed. Our guide, Andrada was excellent. Her knowledge and love of Roman history was evident and infectious. She was a wonderful teacher and we learned so much during our time with her. A great way to learn about what you are looking at!

It was fine
Belle_C, Nov 2022
Didn’t go into the pantheon when the tour team could have just made us the free reservation to go for ourselves, especially since the tour ends at pantheon. Tour guide was passionate and knowledgeable but unfortunately had a thick accent and difficult to understand for me.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
hello, about the pantheon unfortunatly is not even possible to go inside during the tour, but those are the restrictions for covid . so if there ren't so many persons inside we can go , but if is full unfortuynatly not. thanks fpr your review.
Colosseum and more!
Sharon_L, Nov 2022
This was a fabulous experience! Our tour guide was fabulous and we saw so much interesting history. Be prepared to walk!!! This tour covers so much beyond the colosseum- you will walk a lot so I would not schedule another tour or excursion for the same day. Lines were long so being able to skip them was awesome and the earpieces were essential to hear our guide as it was very crowded at all the sites. Great experience!
A must do for everyone visiting Rome.
Harini_S, Nov 2022
The Colosseum and Roman Forum were fantastic and our guide was very knowledgeable. I wish we we could start earlier so that we could Pantheon even if the line was long.

Long Walk around famous ruins
Shelley_C, Oct 2022
The guide was animated and interesting, especially when we were walking from the Forum to Pantheon...a long walk in hot temperature. Guide added interesting facts and punctuated her narrative with "come on!" And asking fun rhetorical questions.
