This was a great tour! We had a small group, a nice mini-bus and an American guide. The catacombs were very interesting.
A nice break from downtown Rome. The Catacombs a nice break from the heat. The guide was fine - a lot of info on the Catacombs especially. An interesting balance between the underground Catacombs and the high outside ruins of the Aqueducts! A more casual tour.
The tour of the catacombs, the Appian way, .and whats left of the viaducts was very informative. Jeanette, our guide, was simply wonderful. She was well versed on the subjects, and quite funny in the right places. I would highly recommend this tour, and keep in mind, its a bit longer time wise than stated
Loved the Tour leader, who shared her knowledge expertly! Learned a lot.
Tour guide was fantastic. Small group which was great. Abundance of knowledge. Very interesting and time for a coffee.
Excellent tour guide; she made the subject lively (not easy, since you are talking about the dead). Would definately recommend it to others.
Best tour in Rome!
This was a small group. We were able to enjoy the countryside. Jeannette was our guide and she was full of information. My 12 year old grandson especially enjoyed this tour
Amazing! I loved everything about this tour. The catacombs are a must see, but very difficult to get to. This tour takes you to the catacombs and provides a guide to explain what you are seeing. What I also loved about this tour is that we stopped to see the Apian Way, and we went to the aqueduct park, where you can see a well-preserved section of aqueduct. This park would be very difficult to get to on your own. The inclusion of the aqueduct park along with the catacombs is why I gave this tour 5 stars. A very enjoyable morning.
Excellent guide! Was very entertaining for such a trip as this one.
Jeanette was the best. She was informative but also lively (funny). We saw a lot in the 2 1/2 hour tour. One of our highlights for sure.
This was a fantastic tour. Jeanette, our guide, did a great job of both educating and entertaining, and the coordinated transport made seeing everything a breeze with a lot less walking than I'd expected. Highly recommended.
This was the highlight of my trip to Rome! It was wonderful to spend a beautiful spring day exploring this area that is just outside of Rome yet feels like a different world. I've been to Rome multiple times but never explored the countryside before and wanted to try something different. The catacombs were fascinating, the aqueduct was impressive, and I particularly liked the walk along the ancient Appian Way, where we saw some of the original stone paving. The group was small and intimate, and our guide Inger was fantastic; she was friendly and full of knowledge and made the day special. Highly recommended for those that want to see a different side of Rome and catch a glimpse of the spectacular countryside!
This was an excellent, worthwhile tour led by a very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Roman history and culture.
Excellent trip was lovely to walk along the appian way and we even saw a tomb, the catacombs were very interesting can't believe how close they were to Rome, would recommend this tour
Got to do this tour with only four people. The two of us and another couple. Allowed for a lot of open discussion of the history. Very knowledgeable guide.
Absolutely brilliant. Our guide (Jeanette) really knew her stuff but more than that she was a great communicator. Thoroughly recommended
Very enjoyable and interesting tour of the Catacombs, Appian Way and aqueduct.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Inga, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The pace of the tour was fine and it was not strenuous. Jon W
Another wonderful trip out in the countryside, the catacombs well worth a visit...there were just 4 of us in our group which made the tour even more interesting as we had plenty of time to ask our guide questions and in turn she had plenty of time to answer.
JEANETTE IS THE BEST!!!! She is truly passionate about the subject matter and her knowledge of art history is fascinating!!! On top of it she has a lovely personality. She really made this tour great!!! Our tour was on a cold, rainy day...appropriate for catacombs! The catacombs, aquaducts, and Apian Way are amazing in and of themselves, but having Jeanette as the tour guide was what made this a once in a lifetime experience!!!
Excellent tour guide, very knowledgable. Catacombs most interesting.
Excellent tour! Visited the Catacombs on Oct. 7, 2013 at 10 AM. Our guide was knowledgeable and we had a small group of about 15 people so we were able to move around quickly and ask lots of questions. You cannot take photos in the catacombs but the information we received was invaluable. It is very cold in the tombs, so be sure to bring a sweater. Also, it did rain on our tour, so please bring an umbrella just in case as some of this tour is held outside of the tombs. Lastly, the mini-bus was nice and air-conditioned. Your drive to the tombs and back to the meeting place.
