Really comfortable coach to take us from the tour office to Tivoli. Tour was informative and what I expected.
We really enjoyed our day at the ancient Hadrian's villa and then to visit Villa d'Este to see what Hadrian's villa would have once looked like. The gardens are spectacular and a pleasant and relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Well worth the visit and a great combination.
Hadrian's Villa was hard work on a hot day, the gardens and fountains of the Villa D'Este were superb. Tivoli is a lovely little town,
Our tour guide was very informative about the history of the Villa and Tivoli Gardens. The fountains were fabulous. This was our 1st visit to Tivoli and definitely worth the time and would recommend teh tour as the history is fabulous.
Again rushed thru .. Seen only half ov the villa. Scenery pretty
This was the most disappointing Viator tour I have been on. The problem was largely created by the guide whose on bus commentary was inaudible and whose ability to communicate what we saw was poor. He didn't introduce himself to us didn't explain much, especially about Hadrian's villa didn't consider the problems about mobility which the older members of the group might experience and just disappeared from the bus even before the first setting off point was reached.
An excellent tour of the highlights of Hadrian's Villa, and an extensive tour of the Villa D'Este in Tivoli. We had enough time to see it all. The tour guide was both extremely nice and knowledgeable.
This was a fantastic day trip from Rome. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and made everything accessible and interesting. Hadrian's Villa was fascinating, seeing ruins from almost 2000 years ago and getting a glimpse of what life was like back then. We learned a lot about the history and culture during Hadrian's rule. We had a nice lunch near the Villa d'Este and then really enjoyed the Villa and beautiful gardens. The fountains were absolutely amazing and our guide showed us all the highlights and provided great background and information. We then had about 30 min to wander the gardens on our own. I would highly recommend this tour and it was a highlight of the trip.
Excellent trip. A little rushed an extra half-hour in Tivoli would have been nice, to have a coffee or icecream, or a chance to shop but a great way to see two outstanding sites, with knowledgable and friendly multilingual guides.
This day trip was extremely good. Our guide Rosella was extremely informative about the 2sites we visited.Hadrians Villa is quickly deterorating and needs restoration but the history is worth your time. Villa d'Este must be seen to appreciate the engineering and architecture that created this stunning estate. Worth your money.
A five alone for Villa d' Este. It is amazingly beautiful with all of the working fountains, the fact alone that the technology of the time could provide such architechally impressive site. The history of Hadrian's Villa was very interesting, the frescos were well preserved. In its prime it would have been quite the sight for the eyes.
I am giving this tour five stars with a warning to the reader. If you have the time and money, consider doing the full day tour instead. Both villas are absolutely astounding in their beauty, and you will want to spend as much time seeing the ruins in Hadrian's Villa and exploring the gorgeous gardens of Villa d'Este. My husband and I rushed to see everything we could on this tour, and would've preferred the day trip to explore at a more leisurely pace.
Still, this is not a bad tour in the least! Our guide showed us the best that Hadrian's Villa had to offer, and gave a short tour of the gardens of Villa d'Este before letting us explore on our own. If you only have the time to do a half-day trip, you won't want to miss this for the world. Absolutely stunning locations you wont see anywhere else. It's a great mix of history and beauty you will love, and you'll fill your camera with many photos from these places.
The tour was well organised the guides were informative, friendly and helpful. Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa were both amazing well worth visiting. Also a nice day away from the hustle and bustle of Rome
enjoyed this trip villa d'este is amazing so is hadrians villa which i would have liked more time to see worth going to tivoli just for the view guide was very good knows everything
Hadrian's Villa was good, it's quite ruined now except the most modern bit with the pool at the end which was very nice
nice. Villa d'Este was amazing everything still as it was when it was built. Could have done with another 30:00 minutes to have a better look around but still worth doing.
Our guide was very informative. There were no crowds, which was so nice. The Villa d'Este, was beautiful.
A fantastic day. The Villa d'Este gardens are breathtaking and Hadrian's Villa is amazing and covers an absoloutely huge area 3 times the size of the Vatican. The day was well paced and very informative. This Tour is an absoloute must when visiting Rome.
Great half day trip from Rome. Hadrian's villa was impressive but the fountains at Villa d'Esta were awsome!
Very well informed guide, nice bus, enjoyable tours. A bit more climbing than expected at Villa d'Este, but well worth the effort.
We had an awesome day on the Tivoli Day Tour. Our guide was so informative and we learnt so much. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
Great day, shame it was so hot. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, firstly at Hadrian's Villa, the ruins to imagine how it was in that time, our guide Mikela, knew her stuff. Then Villa d'Este, was fabulous, a real villa, the famous fountains, and gardens, just lovely to see.
Our tour guide was amazing. So knowledgable and obviously interested in talking and teaching us. We learnt a lot and had an absolutely fabulous day. Would recommend but just make sure you can do lots of walking and stairs. But so beautiful.
The fountains at Villa D'Este were really beautiful. We would have liked to have had longer free time, to wander through the gardens. We also stopped at Hadrian's Villa, perhaps less time here and more at the fountains.
A friendly, knowledgeable guide Rossella gave us formal and informal insights into modern life in Italy before we reached our tour destination where she showed her detailed understanding of Hadrian, the construction of the villa and why it fell into disrepair.
This was a nice half-day trip to Hadrian's Villa's and Villa D'Este. Both were really fascinating and our guide was very informative and funny. I wish I had gone for the full day to spend more time there but only because it was such an interesting place, and Villa D'Este was particularly beautiful!
