Loved this tour. Our guide was passionate about the site, engaging and informative. The radio/headphones worked well and allowed one to stop and take photos without missing out on any information. Loved this tour.
Our guide (Geo?) spoke very passionately about Ancient Ostia and made the visit very informative and interesting. Well worth a visit!
The tour guide (Rebecca) was fantastic, enthusiastic about the history and very informative, which really made this place come alive for us, thank you so much!!!
What a great tour outside of Rome! The train ride is maybe only 25 minutes. Ostia is very small and quiet. Our guide Massimo was really knowledgeable and engaging as all of the Dark Rome guides appear to be. He was able to bring this important former port city to life. The tour does involve a lot of walking, but the guides knowledge and enthusiasm made it worthwhile.
The trip to Ostia Antica was definitely worth going on. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of interesting history about Ostia. There is so much to see at the old Roman port that you really need a good tour guide to explain the buildings, the layout of the town and the history.
This was a wonderful excuse to leave the hustle and bustle of the City for a day trip. The tour was very organized, the group was pretty small (12 people), and the guide was excellent. The ruins are amazing, and Tiffany's knowledge of the area really brought the experience home. She was a wonderful guide and host. Following the tour, my wife and I spent the afternoon and evening in Ostia, returning to the City the next morning. I would highly suggest this tour to anyone, as it was a nice break...with fantastic ruins...and a great guide.
This was an excellent tour. Our tour guide, Rebecca, was exceptional. She was very passionate and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Ostia. She made the history very interesting and was able to capture the group's attention throughout the entirety of the tour. I came away with a good understanding of the ancient port city.
Great tour! Gia was wonderful and Ostia is amazing. Tip: if you plan to take a Vatican tour, take this tour first as there is a reference or two to Ostia at the Vatican and it was great that we had visited Ostia the day prior.
Guide very enthusiastic and knowledgeable (Rebecca). Fantastic site.
We had a most excellent tour of Ostia - our guide Rebecca (I believe) was extremely knowledgeable and spoke very well - she remembered everyones name and made our experience great!! Thanks
Brilliant tour with non stop information. Ostia was quiet and easy to look around despite numerous school parties . Our guide made it entertaining and informative from the moment we started. Great day, thank you.
Rebecca our tour guide was excellent; she is passionate about antiquity and most engaging. Her recommendation for a good meal in Rome was super as well!
Ostia is a wonderful, underutilized historic site that is so close to Rome. A must.
Our guide was fabulous! Gio was friendly from start to finish and very informative. Ostia is a great place to visit and I would recommend it to everyone.
Definitely worth a visit! The tour was very detailed and well organised from start to finish. Ostia is a beautiful place with lots of ancient architecture and amazing scenery. After you have been on the tour you get the option to either go back on the train or go to the coast on the train which is only 15 mins away, I opted for the beach!
