Ancient Ostia Small Group Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Instructions on where to meet the guide were somewhat vague. We showed up 5-10 minutes early at the location that was given and at the prescribed time. There was no guide anywhere in sight. We looked everywhere. We asked many people who were standing around the area but had no luck. Either the guide didn't show up or left without us. Not sure. So, we decided to go to Ostia on our own. Never got my money back for this tour either. Should you decide to book this tour, do it at your own risk as it's a gamble on whether or not you will be able to locate the guide and/or get your money back. It is not difficult to get to Ostia Antica on your own. Plan on spending the better part of a day there as it is a fairly large area and bring water.

Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very good tour. Would have been nice to spend a little more time in some areas but not a big deal. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour as you really get to see the inner workings of the colosseum and get to go into some places that others cannot. I would do this tour again.

Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Interesting tour. We went to the largest underground crypt. We also went to a basilica which was nice but had neither catacomb or crypt. Not really sure why we stopped there to be honest. The Capuchin Crypt was the highlight. More time in a catacomb or crypt overall would have been preferred. The key to this tour is who you get as a tour guide. There were two groups on one bus with two different guides. Our guide was nice but was struggling with her English. At times we would have to wait for the other group to finish in an area before we could enter. While waiting we could hear what the other guide was saying. It became apparent to us that we were not getting a lot of information which would have been nice. This was a unique experience and I'm glad that we went but there are things that could be improved upon. Regardless, we would take this tour again.
