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.

Rebecca was the best guide we have ever had. There is a lot to see and you can spend extra time at the site which you can do if you want to because you travel to the site on a train.

I absolutely loved this tour to Ostia Antica. I had been in Rome multiple times, and this time really wanted to experience some of the areas outside of the busy city. I had never heard of Ostia Antica, but read great reviews, and I completely agree with many that the city is better preserved and more complete than the ruins of Pompeii. Our guide Rebecca was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the subject, and found a way to draw us all in personally to the information she was giving. The group was nice and small so we all got to know each other and it was easy to stay together. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in archaeology or just interested in experiencing something different from the hustle and bustle of the center city!

Took this tour, including a short,easy train journey to Ostia expecting to see a small but important site. How wrong, this site was once inhabited by 60000 people, mainly working class and soldiers. Rachel our guide, was very sociable, informative and brought the town to life for us with her vivid explanations of the working city. Just imagine running water in the higher status buildings 1500 years ago!!
