AMAZING! I didn't know a lot about Ostia, but this tour was super fabulous and informing. The woman leading it was a lot of fun and soooo well educated!
An absolutely outstanding experience. We went on 4 tours with 'City Wonders' and all of their guides are extremely knowledgeable. They all seem to be studying or have graduated from art history, history or archaeology and are so passionate about their subject. Ostia truly is the 'better Pompeii', although I worry that they let you get too close to the history and it may suffer damage from too many tourists. The scale of the place is amazing and the commentary from Sara, the guide, helped to immerse you in the history and really feel it.
Excellent tour guide who made the trip, better than Pompeii and you get to see a Pyramid in Italy
A very good tour and very well hosted by Gia. She was knowledgeable and obviously loved talking and showing people Ostia Antica. I'm glad I took this tour and learnt so much about this ancient civilisation,
Rebecca was a very well informed, entertaining and interesting guide. The site is equal to Pompeii and my opinion better due to less crowds of sightseers. I would recommend the tour to anyone interested.
Brilliant tour guide very knowledgable!! We learnt so much from our tour and the ruins really are greatly preserved I would definitely recommend this trip!
Ostia is wonderful and interesting to see the everyday life of Romans so well preserved. Our tour guide, Rebecca was very knowledgeable and excited about the topic so made the tour extra fun. She even checked on us on the train ride back to Rome to see if we had any questions. Once back in Rome, she helped everyone with bus/train connections. Overall, a very nice tour and a must-see if your planning a trip to Rome.
Great excursion, especially for those who have already seen the main sites in Rome. Tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. Enjoyed using the train rather than. Bus. This was our first time using Viator. We will use Viator again
The place was fantastic! I was also very pleased with our tour guide, Rebecca was fantastic. She was very informed about the history of the place, was interesting to listen to and entertaining. Her English was excellent as a native speaker and she was also very helpful with questions about Rome and tourist information. I would highly recommend it.
This was the highlight of our trip for me and my daughter. Rebecca, our guide, made it all come alive even more than we expected. Without her Ostia would have been amazing, but with her it was AWESOME!!! Highly recommend this tour as a get away from the usual stuff one sees and does in Rome.
I can't recommend this tour enough! Ostia was an amazing site. It was so much bigger and intact than I was expecting. You definitely get a good feel for what ancient Roman life was like.
Our tour guide, Rebecca, was the BEST tour guide we have ever had. We took our three children on this tour and she kept them engaged and interested the entire time. She brings so much enthusiasm and knowledge to the visit.
If you are going to visit Ostia. I think you will get so much more out of it with a tour. Especially a tour with Rebecca!
This was a really good half-day trip. Ostia was enormous, which really surprised me. The guide Rebecca was really good. At the end of the tour she helped everyone with planning the rest of the day, as some were staying in Ostia, some were going to the beach and some went back to Rome. Highly recommendable.
