This was an exceptional tour. Great guide, Rebecca. She was very knowledgable and had a great way of telling the stories. She was passionate about Ostia and we benefitted from that passion. Would go on other tours with her again. The small group was nice also. Well done. Thankyou
The tour was very smooth. All transfers worked out fine. The tour guide Emilio was very knowledgable and gave a great tour. He was an excellent guide and I learned so much from him. The tour was well planned out and I am glad my agent recommended viator. I recommend Emilio highly.
This is well worth the trip. The guide was superb, very knowledgable and passionate about her work. We learnt heaps about this site and would do this tour again. It was early in the season so there were very few others there. I liked the small group experience.
This was probably one of the best days we spent in Rome! Our guide, Rebecca 'Antica', was very knowledgeable and made the experience that much more enjoyable. The tour was well organized and went off with out a hitch. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour, especially if Rebecca is your guide.
Rebecca, our guide was FANTASTIC! She was a true pro and herded our group with care and energy from start to finish. This tour is one of the best I have been on in years and well worth the time to experience the best ruins of Roman history.
Fantastic trip by train out to the ancient port of Rome. We made our own way back, easy enough and ended up spending the whole day at the site. It is huge! The guide was excellent and showed us the best of the site, but we wanted to wander around on our own at the end. I would say that if you are into History, this is a don't miss trip.
This tour was excellent - the guide was very knowledgable and informative and Ostia itself is stunning and parts of it were incredibly well preserved. A must-see when visiting Rome.
Our wonderful guide, Rebecca, met us at the train station and led our group out to Ostia. When there she gave us an incredible tour. It was almost as if she lived there at one time! Ostia is a fascinating place, an ancient seaport of Rome, as large as Pompei and better preserved. Rebecca was the perfect guide for this tour, and while there were over two dozen people in our group, you felt that it was a personal tour, given by a close friend who just might happened to be a college professor. This was an incredible tour and easily worth a half day to see. The fact that it is only a half-hour by train from central Rome makes it all the easier to get to. If you are interested in ancient Rome, this is a must do. And if you have Rebecca as a guide, all the better.
What can i say other than our tour guide Rebecca made this ancient city to come to life. You can definitely tell she loves her job and this site. We are so glad we booked this tour and i would highly recommend this over Pompei. just 30 minutes outside of Rome. Very well preserved and incredible to see what the Romans created thousands of years ago. Book it, you will not be disappointed. Hopefully, you'll be lucky enough to get Rebecca as well!
Excellent day trip full of history and information regarding the early Roman settlement. A must see if in Rome or the area.
The guide Giogi??? was just wonderful! She was well versed on archaeology and a funny. We really enjoyed her tour last Sunday Sept 13th
Very good tour, it was nice to get out of the city for a bit. The area is huge, definitely not for people who have trouble walking. You really got a sense of how it would have been in ancient times.
You need an escape from the hustle and bustle of Rome. This trip was peaceful, unhurried and interesting.
Our guide Nikolai was a local, had an informative but not overloading style and was a really nice guy.
The cafe on site is good and reasonably priced.
This was an excellent tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide.
Found this tour on Viator and highly recommend it. The guide, Rebecca, was extremely knowledgeable and and she took the time to explain things and answer questions. The tour gave an overview of the daily life in ancient Roman times and was one of the highlights of our trip. As it was a very hot day, Rebecca was also very mindful of the conditions. In all, an informative and fun day.
Mike was an excellent guide who shared insights into historical significance of what we were seeing.
Rebecca was by far the best tour guide, and Ostia is AMAZING!!! We also took the train to the beach for the second half of the day...this was our favorite for Rome!!!
Great tour. this place gives a good window as to life during the Roman Empire as it has not been destroyed like most Roman artifacts.
An excellent tour. Our guide Rebecca was outstanding. She was very well informed about Ostia and seemed genuinely interested in sharing her knowledge with us. The audio headsets worked very well and enabled everyone to hear what she was saying.
I highly recommend this tour. Almost as good as Pompeii the only difference is that Pompeii had such a tragic story to tell and that is the only difference! The tour guide was absolutely wonderful. Very knowledgeable and gave us lots of interesting information. Fascinating and amazing to see mosaic tiles designating the type of trade. Also saw an original bar used in a tavern. You shouldn't miss this tour while in Rome!
Excellent four hour tour of ostia antica. Our guide was professional, knowledgeable and polite. An excellent place to visit with amazing history and ruins, without the hordes of tourists normally associated with Rome's tourist sites.

I thoroughly recommend this trip, it is not far from Rome and gives you a great insight as to how the Roman ancient civilisation went about their everyday business. Our guide Rebecca was so informative and passionate and made sure that this was an experience we would not forget. Not even a train strike stopped Rebecca and the company from organising an air conditioned coach back to our drop off point. Well done all.
