Can't recommend this tour highly enough. We had a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide and that always helps of course. If you are in Rome and have the time I wouldn't miss this.
Ostia is well worth a visit. Altho this was not my first time there, our guide was so well-versed in Roman history and archeology that we were able to understand the significance of these ruins as we walked through. My only complaint was that this tour was too short; we could easily have spent twice the time.
I can see why they call Ostia the better Pompeii. Excellent guide and great location!
Our guide was so passionate about Ostia and add this to his knowledge. Made it a fantastic day plus the small # in the group helped
This was a great tour. The tour guide Giorgio really made Ostia come alive with his extensive knowledge of the site. I thought it was an outstanding tour.
This was a very informative tour. The guide really knew the history of the place and was quite entertaining.
Ostia is an excellent alternative to a trip to Pompeii. A fascinating and easily accessible place from Rome. the instructions and directions given to meet the bus and tour guide were clear and easy to follow. The tour guide was informative and very helpful especially helping everyone to get to their accommodation at the conclusion of the tour.
This tour was brilliant and informative, the guide was wonderful. It is definitely worth taking the time to go to Ostia if you are visiting Rome.
Absolutely fantastic, so much more than we expected,our guide certainly knows his subject. Superb
Originally we had booked this tour for the Friday morning of our stay in Rome but when phoning to confirm 24 hours in advance of the trip we found out that we were the only 2 bookings and since a minimum of 6 was required it was cancelled !
Luckily we were able to reschedule to the Sunday morning slot and everything went very smoothly - they picked us up at our hotel as arranged and the trip itself was fabulous - our guide Giorgio was a former archaeology teacher and he really brought this ancient port to life during his guided tour. The physical pace of the tour was just right and we had a wonderfully informative and enjoyable half day - thanks Giorgio!
Better than expected. Tour guide was a retired teacher and new everything in depth.
Excellent guide with good knowledge of subject and some materials to illustrate specific details.
