This tour gives you access to amazing underground archaeological sites that are not visited by the general public. Flavio was my tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. We went to Piazza Navona (underground), the Pantheon and Trevi (underground). I highly recommend this tour and Flavio.

It was an enjoyable tour to see both above and below Rome. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did her best to make it engaging for the group. We highly recommend.

In fact, we got separated from the group in front of the Pantheon as there were swarms of people...however, upon calling the main help desk of the tour company, the tour lady was contacted and she was able to put aside the group and, fortunately enough, find us at the designated spot — and seamlessly continued the tour as if nothing happened. We are grateful for their kindness and ensuring we were able to still enjoy the tour despite the hiccup in being separated from the group.

Excellent tour of underground Rome. We enjoyed a private tour with a guide. Our guide Louisa was extremely knowledgeable and made the three hour tour very enjoyable. We saw various locations of ruins under the streets of Rome and learned much about the history of the ancient Romans. I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was very enjoyable and I would recommend to anyone. It was a nice combination of above and below ground sites, (mostly above) and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating for everyone with questions and other special requests. The audio system used was better than some of the others we have used on our trip and made it very easy to understand Alex's running commentary on all the sites.
