Followed the book and variations in the movie very well

This half day tour provides a fun way to see different sites in Rome. Our tour started in Piazza del Popolo and we were shuttle by bus to 3 other sites, after which we took a brief break for refreshments before a short walk to our final destination. The only challenging part of the tour from a physical standpoint is climbing the stairs within the Castel Sant'Angelo. Our guide was excellent and was able to separate the fictions of the book from the great history of the sites. An excellent half day tour.

Our guide Demetri was great, thoroughly enjoyed this tour, do not do this tour, if you have not seen the movie or read the book otherwise you will have no idea what they are talking about.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This tour was even better than expected. It is fun not only for fans of the book but even for those who have not read it. There are still sites to see. And if possible, do ask for Robert as the guide. He does bring Rome to life with his passion and also has a sense of humour. Best tour I have ever experienced

Robert was AWESOME! This is hands down our favorite tour in our whole trip. He's entertaining, engaging and very informative. You can tell he loves his job and gives it his all when with the tour group. We enjoyed the pace, the sights and the break for drinks! We had read the book and seen the movie years ago but our guide put us right back in the midst of the story and let us know the fiction from the history. A wonderful tour whether you've read the book or not!

Absolutely captivating!
Roberto our guide was fantastic. His enthusiasm and storytelling was fantastic.
I was sceptical to begin with but was soon converted by roberto's infectious manner.
I would highly recommend this tour even if you are like me and haven't read the book or watched the movie.
