Very small group of eight. Very informative and professionally done. We ended our tour earlier than expected and that might be because of the small number of people. In additiion to Catacombs and Countryside, our guide shared cultural information about Italy, regions and foods. Rome was very crowded and it was refreshing to see life out of the city.
Wonderful excursion. Aqueduct was amazing. Catacombs were cool. countryside beautiful. Loved it.
This tour is a hidden gem. You walk among ruins up close and personal. Our guide was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. The ruins are well preserved and you really can imagine the life the ancient city dwellers experienced. We enjoyed it and highly recommend it!
This was a wonderful tour. The tour guide was very knowledgable and provided us with opportunities for pictures as well as questions. The tour was also paced well - not too fast and not too slow.
This was a brilliant tour - the guide (Rosa) was really good - we enjoyed it very much. It was informative and really good value
Small group (only had 16) so felt we had a personal experience. Guide very informative and upbeat. First visit for me to the catacombs since I was 5 (more than 60 years ago) so it was a special trip. Favorite part of the trip was standing on the Appian Way and under the aqueducts. Highly recommended tour.
A very informative tour from a slightly different perspective. The small group was excellent as was the local guide Inga, who went out of her way to help us catch another tour after this one. Inga was happy to answer our questions and connect knowledge we had learnt from other tours.
This was a 5+++, not only was the tour wonderful, but I cannot say enough about our guide. She was terrific. Great personality and easy to get along with. We were a small group, 7 of us, which made it exceptional!
Very interesting tour which allowed plenty of time to see everything, and for photo ops. Guide knowledgeable and very available. Much enjoyed outing that added to experience of rome and it's history. thanks
Our guide, Jeanette, if I remember her name correctly, was amazing! American accent because she is from Florida originally, but has been living in Italy for 10 years so she knows what she's talking about. Small group and we saw everything we were expecting to see and more. Exceptional tour which I would recommend to anyone. Very pleased.
Our guide was wonderful. Very knowledgable and sensitive to our questions.
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,
