Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept the attention of the group very well. We enjoyed the tour and recommend it; it is about the right length and covers the basics well.
The Colosseum was closed due to an internal staff strike on the scheduled day of our tour! The company rescheduled it for the next day and we really enjoyed it, despite the fact that two days worth of tourists were trying to see everything in one day. Very knowledgeable guide which helped us appreciate what we were seeing.
Our tour leader was so passionate, engaging and informative. I'd been on walking tours in Rome before but this one I feel I got so much more out of. It was my boyfriend's first time in Rome and this just ticked off so many sights you must see in just three hours and it really does makes it so much more interesting and relevant to have someone so knowledgeable explain the incredible history behind them. Unfortunately I can't remember our tour guides name but she had the pirate flag and was fantastic!
My wife and I both agreed there was no better way to not just see the sites but to get around the area of Rome where all these landmarks reside. We learned about Rome's history from the tour guide who was as entertaining and knowledgeable a person as you can find and enjoyed knowing the short cuts to get from one spot to another so we could come back after the tour and revisit the spots we took note of as we walked and talked. The only issue we had other than Rome is a tough place to get around in was the crowds were so large in most of the landmarks that if you stopped to snap a picture you noticed you started losing communication through the headsets quickly and getting back within range sometimes took some effort because you were usually stuck behind a crowd. It didn't hamper the tour at all. Just made you aware to keep up or tune out. I'd definitely would recommend the Half-Day walking tour. Don't solo it. Romes not a user friendly place.
Great tour. Our guide was very informative and spoke English very well.
Francesca was wonderful. She was the best tour guide I have had for ages she was very knowledgeable, I would book another tour with her in a heartbeat thank you very much
Marcheta was super energetic and knowledgable and very open to answering questions. It was a great day and I learned a lot!
Our tour guide was very intelligent and knowledgeable about all of the different attractions. Loved this tour!
This was a great tour that showed us SO much in a relatively short period of time. Our guide was very good and knowledgeable. This is definitely the way to see Rome!!
Great tour guide and extremely informative about archeology and history.
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was really knowledgable with all the sites and gave us some great insight on how things were back in the day. She was prepared for all of our questions and knew a great deal about the sites. She was also very patient with our group that often stopped to take plenty of pictures. Highly Recommend!
