Rebecca was great. She was extremely knowledgeable on the site as well as many other things about Rome and the history. It was a very entertaining and educational tour. The site was amazing, well worth doing. Especially nice to have a smaller group and take the train. Enjoyed that we could stay after the tour and contInue wandering the site.

Well worth a visit. I was impressed with how intact many of the buildings were. Rebecca was a fantastic guide both in her knowledge and inter-personal skills. Even for just the short time of the tour, she did her best to learn everyone's name, and to give extra information for things to see and do.

Rebecca had a very good knowledge of her history of Ostia. She even helped us get the correct train home and pointed out other sites worth visiting. Ostia was huge and you could easily continue by yourself when the tour was over. It was easy to get there and home again.

Wonderful tour of the ancient city with a knowledgable guide. An excellent visit to a working class Roman city with great excavations and mosaics. Much easier to get to and enjoy from Rome than Pompeii.

This was a great, informative and very interesting tour. Rebecca was a great expert guide. Though the site is huge and we didn't get to see everything. We were shown all the relevant sites and told fantastic stories and information about every aspect of the site. And for me, who was staying after the tour entered, she was more than happy to provide me with additional information on the site and highlights and must-sees. This was a great tour of Ancient Rome and I would highly recommend it to everyone visiting Rome.

The tour guide was OUTSTANDING!!! She gave us so much information, she was extraordinarily knowledgeable and I have never met a guide with so much passion for what she was doing!! She was awesome. She finished up with showing us all how to get to our next place whatever that might have been. She was one in a million

Gio was our tour guide and she was absolutely brilliant. She was informative, witty and fun, and we all learned a lot from her. Our two children aged 9 and 11 years really enjoyed Ostia and particularly Gio's style which made it all come to life. It is certainly a fabulous site and well worth a visit. Several people on this tour said it was a far better experience than Pompeii. The ruins are fascinating and really give you a look into ancient Roman life. Thumbs up and highly recommeded.

This was an AMAZING tour...made even more amazing by the BEST guide we had of our all tours in Italy. Her name was Rebecca (gorgeous woman with red hair) who took us back 2,000+ years to make us feel like we were living here at the time. IT's fun to take a local commuter train out to the site, but honestly, you must request Rebecca.
