The tour was very informative. And the big suprize was the visit to the church. St. peter in Chains. I had forgoten that Michelangelo's sculpture's for pope Julius II the second's tome was there. I was a great way to start our vacation. We could not always here the tour quide with the microphone she had.

We especially appreciated the visit to St. Paul's Outside the Walls. The stop at the Forum was fascinating too.

Our guide was very good and helpful and organized. The shuttle picked me up at my hotel in a timely manner. The tour was very thorough, and we could get dropped off where was convenient for us.

OK. It gets hot hot hot. Not the tour's fault. They were very interesting sites, and the guide was knowledgeable. I wished there could have been more time to go inside some of the places.

Our guide was excellent and we visited all the promised stops. We would have liked to walk through the Colosseum with him to have a better experience.

This was a very good tour. The guide was very informed and interesting however, it was tough to hear him at times because there were no audio devices. Also, it would have been enhanced if he had gone into the Colosseum with us and told us more about it.

Not long enough to go into Colosseum. St. Paul's is beautiful and the Forum hard to believe that it was once a thriving city. Definitely see.

You don't go into the Colosseum on this tour, so you have to pay extra to go inside.

I would have rated this tour four stars if it had included going inside the Colosseum. We'd have paid more for that. By the way, we thought the amount of walking was just right. Also, the guide was very good; we liked him a lot.

It was worth going if only to get some nice photos of the Colosseum! There is a lot of time in the bus, that's my main complaint. But the upside is you get to see a lot of Rome's major attractions.

You saw wonderful sights, especially the colosseum, but the guide was very difficult to hear and a little abrupt. I could not give this experience a thumbs up

We went during the low season, so the fast track entrance to the colloseum was not really worth it. The guide was knowlegdeable and pleasant. Overall, we might have used our time better if we had gone to the sights by ourselves, but we would have missed much of the information the guide provided.

Very good tour but the guide was not understandable, his accent was too thick. Wish the Parthenon was included.

The tour was very informative and had a very good itinerary. The guide was very knowledgeable, my problem was with the mix of people on the bus. Everything needed to be said first in English, second in Spanish the third in Japanese.
When we broke into groups, our group was the English group and that was all in English. I think the company should say in their description of the tour that there will be other languages spoken.

It would be good to have whispers or audio so we can hear the guide well even as we walk.

This was a good tour if you have not been to the city. I was In Rome the day before and was able to walk all the route. the tour gave me insight to what i was looking at, but lacked in the Colosseum.

Not a huge fan. Rome is easily walkable and this tour felt geared to an older, slower crowd (admittedly not me).

Good overall tour. It would be helpful if one were alerted before the tour that at the end of the tour, one is not taken back to the starting point, but just dropped off at the last tour stop.
