Truly one of the best tours I’ve ever been on. The tour takes you to most of the major sites around Rome and Vatican City which is great if you want to see a lot of the city but have a limited amount of days to do it. The tour guides were so friendly and knowledgeable and really told the story and set the scene for where we were and what we were seeing. They are what really set this tour apart from others. I highly recommend you take this tour (and wear comfortable shoes!)

We really like this tour. Our morning tour guide, Christine, is terrific with giving relevant info in interesting and fun ways. She is a native English speaker and was super easy to understand. She also managed the pace very well to make sure we get to see all planned sites .Our afternoon tour guide, Irene, a native of Rome. She gave us a fantastic tour of the Colosium, the Forum and other ancient Rome sites. Then she led us downtown to see the modern Rome sites and fountains. Irene is the best guide one can hope for .She makes sure everyone is cared for and are having a good time. We got all the info and fun facts we wanted at each site and more. Her energy level is incredible even at the end of a really hot and humid day .Thank you for a wonderful day in Rome .We went out on our own the next day and complete our Roman holidays in style!

My husband and I spent two weeks in Europe and this was BY FAR the best tour we went on! We spent our morning with the lovely Chiara, seeing the ancient Roman sights, and our afternoon was with Christina at the Vatican. We were blown away by both ladies’ extensive knowledge and great energy. EXCELLE
