Excellent guides. Timely start. Very accommodating of my wife's tendency towards motion sickness.
Awesome place, the most impressive (and most surprising) experience we had. Hadrian's Villa should be better advertised - very few people realise it is not a villa as such (300 hectares estate, much bigger than Pompeii). Louise was fantastic - well informed, excellent presentation and manners, not to mention her passion for architecture (it made such a difference). Thank you.
Stephanie was very pleasant and knowledgable, exactly what you want in a tour guide. The tour was a good pace and a nice break from the intensity of Rome. It gave a different perspective from just visiting the sites in Rome. We a glad we took an afternoon to visit these two sites. Thank you Stephanie.!
Beautiful gardens and fountains. I have never seen something similar to that before.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Lucca our Guide was most informative about Hadrian and his Villa. A truly amazing place to visit. With reference to Villa D'Este have been there before. It never disappoints. What a magnificent place. If you are visiting Rome take the time to visit - its roughly an hours drive from Rome. You will not be disappointed.
Our guide, Georgia was very informative and did an outstanding job of educating the group with a very nice amount of humor. She was definitely passionate about her job as tour guide. We would definitely would recommend this tour and tour guide.
We chose Dark Tour and got more than we anticipated. We had a wonderful guide who was extremely knowledgeable and offered historical as well as some humorous tidbits about what we saw. Our hostesses were helpful and made sure we all were taken care of when it was time to leave. They called us cabs, and walked us to train stations. We did much better than if we had done the trip ourselves.
This was a great trip. Both Hadrian's Villa and the Villa D'Este were fantastic places to see and visit, but the entire tour was enhanced by the most superb guide that we have ever encountered. Rebecca's knowledge and enthusiasm were amazing; she was incredibly informative and always interesting. This tour guide was exceptional and her contribution to the enjoyment of the tour was immeasurable.
Gia did a wonderful job of making the Roman Empire real. She gave in-depth information and was so well informed when asked questions. This was a jewel of a tour.
This was a fantastic tour!We learned so much from Hadrian's Villa tour.Our Gio guide was very knowledgeable and made it an excellent experience. Villa d'Este was amazing! It was absolutely breathtaking with so many fountains. I would have liked a bit more time at Villa d'este though. Overall great!
Excellent day! Luca and Louise were knowledgeable and friendly. Hadrian's Villa was so much more than I expected and Villa D'Este was breathtaking. Only wish we'd had more time
Fantastic afternoon trip and great to get out of the city for a while. Our guide, Rebecca, was superb and extremely knowledgeable. Her passion for the subject is to be commended and certainly makes the trip even more enjoyable. An extra hour in Tivoli would have been great so that there would be time to see Villa d'Este in its entirety and to grab a coffe as well but we would highly recommend this tour.
This was a most enjoyable and informative day out. The villa was interesting and the gardens were amazing- not to be missed!
This was a great tour. Hadrian's Villa over 120 acres really came alive with our excellent tour guide who supplied detailed information about how Hadrian lived in approximately 100 AD. The tour guide made you feel how life was in Hadrian's Villa. We next traveled to Tivoli and the Villa d'Este gardens. Tivoli is a beautiful city on top of a mountain. The gardens run down the side of the mountain and are beautiful with wonderful waterfalls and fountains. Lots of walking and climbing in this tour! Notwithstanding, it was well worth the time and effort.
