My wife and I were on our honeymoon trip and to visit some of the key sites in Rome is a must-do item in our list. The meet-up point was easy to locate. Tour set off timely. Our tour guide: Francesca (if i remember her name correctly) is a very professional, knowledgeable and friendly lady. Through the tour, we gained lots of information and facts about ancient Rome. Colosseum is really awesome and we took numerous nice photos at this site. Francesca done a great job by giving clear and descriptive explanation on the Roman forum too which allowed us to visualize how things were like in the past. Though the sun was strong during the walk, the tour was high spirited and i bet each of us in the group enjoyed it.
As the Trevi Fountain is under heavy restoration, the guide offered us an alternative and she brought us to the famous Pantheon. During our walk, she gave us small information on which are the nice restaurants to visit and which to give a miss etc.
A highly recommended tour to all.
Great tour, our guide (Franchesca) was fabulous and very knowledgeable, friendly and clear loved her job. Sights we seen were perfect and would highly recommend
Great guide through the ancient ruins. Perfect amount of time spent on this walking tour.
The tour was great. The guide was freindly and very knowledgable. We went to all the really historical places and learned a lot.
This tour will not disappoint! The enthusiasm and passion with which Patricia conducted our tour was infectious! That along with her 'magic book' made the ancient ruins and astounding history jump to life. I never could have appreciated and assimilated so much on my own without this tour. Do not hesitate for one moment!
The ruins nearly speak for themselves, standing out from the bustling city, or so we thought. Our energetic, friendly, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable guide, Sara, introduced us to the when, where, why, and how of all of the old stories of Rome we encountered on our walk. Our time amongst the ruins was notably longer and more meaningful under Sara's guidance. And more to her credit, her spunk and humor allowed us to learn and enjoy ourselves despite it pouring down rain while we were amongst the Forum ruins. My wife and I were amazed the rest of the afternoon at her ability to pull us through the rain with a smile.
One thing to note, that was a bit odd for all the tours we took in Europe, was that you are required to pay cash on site for the entrance to the museums, ON TOP OF the fee for the touring service. I would have preferred to just have paid that ahead of time as part of my fee. Luckily we had the requisite cash on hand.
The tour was excellent and the tour guide was very informative and very considerate of everyone's needs
Our tour Guide Sarah was awesome. She was ver knowledgable with a great smile. We got stuck in a severe thunder storm in the middle of the Forum and she just kept going! The weather was bad but she still made it enjoyable!
Loved it! Great guide who was very knowledgable and easy to talk to. He was kind and took his time to show us all the cool spots! His English was great as well - highly recommended !!
Nothing but the best ! The only way to go. The guide was amazing!Would't do it any other way !
If you are going to do this tour, wear good walking shoes and you will need a large bottle of water and be relatively fit. We did this during the heart of summer and it was HOT... Learnt a lot in the tour, our guide was very knowledgable and my friend and I were very impressed. Learnt a lot about ancient rome and saw many monuments. Tour guide even took pictures when we wanted, and gave directions on how to get back to our hotel at the end of the tour.
Great tour!! The guide (forgot his name - Sorry) was knowledgeable and professional. He had great visuals to help explain what we were going to see. Highly recommend it.
What an excellent tour and beautiful day! Our tour guide was an archaeologist and was so knowledgeable and passionate about ancient Rome. Loved it!
