We loved this tour! We followed this with a 21 day cruise, and after all those tours I still regard this as possibly the best. Great guide, able to give info in several
Languages, pick up from our hotel. Good value.

I am a Hadrian fan so seeing his Tivoli villa was awesome, but must say Villa d'Este was an unexpected surprise what a great half day tour. Luckily for us the weather was beautiful and absolutely no crowd to deal with at either location. A win, win!!

This tour was excellent, could have spent more time at Hadrian's Villa as it is so vast.
Villa d'Este was well worth the visit and the water gardens were breathtaking.
The guide was knowledgeable and friendly.
Overall excellent trip and highly recommended.

Touring the town of Tivoli, Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este gave us a chance to see more than the usual "Top 10 Tourist Attractions of Rome!" The Villas are incredible, especially the gardens with all of the fountains. I was also especially impressed by our very knowledgeable and linguistically talented guide who provided explanations to our multi-linguistic group in English, Spanish and French. The view of Rome from the hilltop Villas and the short ride through the countryside were new views that enhanced this my third visit to Rome.

Wonderful tour. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The treck up the hill was a bit difficult but worth the effort. Villa D'este was wonderful.

The tour was very good, with hotel pickup. The guide gave us a comprehensive presentation on the two sites, showed us the main attractions and gave us enough time to see some things on our own. Especially for the villa d'este, we could see the gardens and fountains on our own, althoiugh for the Villa Adriana we would need more than 2 hours to tour the site as it is bigger! It;s a great way to see two very beautiful sites in one afternoon!

unfortunately was not able to attend this tour due extreme illness, but can assume it would have been as exceptional as the tour we did take with the same tour company GLT.

Very interesting tour but was annoyed that Viator did not notice that I double booked the afternoon tour with the Best of Rome afternoon walking tour on the same day. My mistake, but I think Viator should have let me know.

This was an excellent tour and my partner and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We took a similar tour several years ago but the guide only gave us the option of Villa D'Este OR Hadrian's villa so we opted for the former, despite the tour being advertised as visiting both sites. I was somewhat worried that this would be the same case this year but no, Catherine and her Spanish speaking colleague showed us around Villa Adriana with plenty of historical detail and time to enjoy the surroundings and to take photographs before transporting us to Villa D'Este where she showed us the '100 Fountains' and we were then free to wander around the villa and the beautiful gardens for an hour before returning to the coach for the 30 minute journey back to Rome. At no time did we feel rushed and we even managed to fit in an excellent panini and ice cream at the small restaurant in the square outside Villa D'Este. A good end to a good day... Our return drop off point left us a short taxi ride from our hotel - we felt like treating ourselves rather than take the metro and walk! I can certainly recommend this trip but be aware that the walk up from the car park at Hadrian's Villa is a steady but reasonable incline so those with heart or chest conditions may need several stops, but the effort is certainly worth it.
