This was an excellent tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable of the catacombs and the Roman country side. She offered manuy opportunities to ask questions.
Superb guide (Jeanette) - she made the trip worthwhile!
Janette was GREAT! Absolutely loved this one. Loved that the tour was only in English and the small group size made it perfect.
The catacombs of St. Callixtus was an amazing experience. The guide, (a priest), was enlightening, informative and very thorough. We enjoyed his guided tour tremendously!! We also enjoyed Rosa's (our tour guide through out the day) detailed historical explanations about the Appian Way, and the Roman Viaducts. It was disappointing that we did not get close enough to take decent pictures of the Viaducts (similar to other pictures posted on this site).
Overall, it was a very interesting and relaxing day.
Our tour guide, Janet, was excellent, and the tour went to all of the places we wanted to see.
I enjoyed this tour; it was very interesting, but it's not a walking tour. We got in a coach from the office and were driven to the Catacombs and stopped off at a couple of places but did hardly any walking. That's not a complaint - just for information. The Catacombs were very moving; we were shown round by a priest from India who was there for the summer and he was an excellent presenter. We learned quite a lot and were astonished at the way they were constructed. No photos allowed!
This was one of our favorite tours. Unlike anything you have ever seen and a very small group.
We were hugely disappointed in being unable to locate starting point of this tour after being repeatedly misdirected to the tour's pick-up point. We will not ever recommend Viator to anyone, and will only ever book a tour when on location, and not ever by using the internet and in advance. Not possible to rate the tour, but the tour company rates as very poor,
So glad we did this - had been to Rome several time and not done this before. Our guide on the bus was very knowledgeable and interesting. The catacombs tour was great and the extra aquaduct tour and other sites in the country were fascinating. Thanks.
This was an excellent trip. The tour guide was first class and so interesting and informative.
This tour was very worthwhile. We highly recommend it. Seeing the Catacombs with a knowledgeable guide, the aquaducts and Appian Way was excellent.

Very interesting tour. The catacombs were fascinating and our guide Rosa showed us the Appian Way and also the ancient aquaducts. She was very knowledgeable and personable. It was nice because our group was small - 8 people so we were able to ask a lot of questions.
I highly recommend it.
