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.
This is a different type tour. Very informative and interesting. In addition to seeing the catacombs no bodies you get to walk the Apian Way - very cool. The Aqueducts were also amazing. Highly recommended.
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.
Excellent in what we saw and tour guide was knowledgeable ,considerate, and personable. Would do it again.
we had a great relaxing drive down from Rome and a great day. Patricia our tour hostess was excellent. Vincenzo our guide through the ruins was very knowledgeable and clear and very entertaining! recommend the guided tour
Wonderful tour! Had so much fun on this trip, our guide was so passionate and could answer all of our questions. This trip is deifnitely worth it!
The bus was comfortable, and the tour guide and driver were both friendly and thorough. Pompeii is a bit overwhelming to tour on your own in a half day, but they give you enough guidance to make the trip worth your while. I highly recommend this for people who are comfortable traveling independently and who don't mind not seeing all of Pompeii during their trip. Take a book with you it's a long enough drive!
Fabulous,amazing tour guide,amazing place ,Villa d'Este is a paradise,place of incredible beauty,unforgettable! Thank you !
We loved our guide Alfredo.My 12 year old granddaughter and I consider Villa d'Este one of the highlights of our three week tour of Italy.
It was a wonderful tour. The guide was knowledgeable and friednly. The bus trip was comfortable. Overall excellent
The tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable about the history of early Christian practices, the engineering of the Appian Way and Aquaduct system. Truly a pleasant experience and recommended. Mercifully, the tour bus was air conditioned, and the driver was excellent.
Very nice tour, small bus, few people, nice guide... everything went smoothly and calmly.
We took this excursion to see Hadrian's Villa, but the real treat was Villa d'Este! The pace of the day is perfect. Transportation was very comfortable. We had a great guide, Adrianna. I highly recommend this day, but caution that is a walking tour once you arrive at the two sights.
Good guide, interesting day, learned a lot. Good bus, on time, no hassles...all good.
Great experience. Would do again. Get the guided option. Our English speaking guide was knowledgeable and personable. Patricia our tour escort was punctual, precise and professional. She was always smiling on a very hot day. If you want a positive stress free trip to Pompeii from Rome this is it.
Jeanette was our tour guide! Fantastic is all I can say. She raved about on Trip Advisor and boy were they right. From start to finish she was funny, fully of really interesting facts and knew everybody's name. I went on my own with 2 LA film producers and a lovely family of 4 from Washington. It was a great trip and the crypts were incredible really incredible.
I would advise anyone to go on it. There was very little walking but lots to see and take photos of. I would give it 10/10 if I could.
Another great halfday tour. Our tour guide was phenominal. She was very knowledgable and memorized all the names of the people in our approx 20 people group. She even found a way to incorporate everyone's jobs and lives and related to centuries ago. Extremely good information.
Sent you a review one week ago, cant see anything yet. The same last year - nothing appeared with my review - which both last year and this year were very positiv, since we were very satisfied. Kind regards from

A really enjoyable tour interesting to see inside the Catacombs and the original Appian way we had a great tour guide who gave us plenty of information about Roman life and death. All in all a good trip.
Great guide (Alfredo) and amazing places!!
This was a fantastic day. I can highly recommend it.
Really excellent tour. Alfreddo our guide was really nice, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We were in a small group and taken in an air conditioned coach, this was really handy as it was about 32-25 C in Rome. He gave an excellent commentary. Hadrian's villa was amazing. Nothing prepares you for the shear scale of the place. The town of Tivoli was quiet and the people were nice. Had some excellent pizza at the restaurant in front of Villa D'este. The Villa was amazing, so many fountains and water features. The gardens and architecture were amazing. Alfreddo was really informative and had a great time. A must see.
What really made this tour awesome was our tour guide, Janet. She was remarkable she made sure to remember all our names and included us in the history story that she was telling us. She was not only extremely knowledgable about all aspects of the tour but had a great sense of humour. We had some dominant personalities on our tour and she handled them with such class. One of the best guides we have ever come across. Thank you Janet.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I have been to Rome before and wanted to do something I hadn't already done so I booked this tour. I am so glad I did. I loved seeing Hadrian's Villa and learn about his reign and his life. But the Villa D'Este was the pinnacle of this tour. The gardens are so beautiful. The English Speaking guide was brilliant, funny and very knowledgeable. A great day away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Worth doing.
Splendid tour guide, an young American expat who studied Italian history and now lives in Rome. Entertaining and fun throughout. Not much walking as such but nice to get out of the hot city and see some different things.
