this was so much fun and extremely interesting if you read the book-it really made it all come together! Massimo was great at identifying the book fiction from the truth and spelling it all out-loved it! st angelo's is a must see-it was great and had wonderful views all around. we really liked this. loved the other churches we visited, too. there was a metro strike that day... traffic in rome was horrific yet the bus driver was able to keep the schedule-just amazing--kudo's to him
I'm 52 and my son is 18 - we both enjoyed this tour. Roberto was a very engaging guide who mixed the story with historical truths in a delightful manner. Definitely recommend this !
Guide really knew his stuff and he did a great job adding local color to the story.
This was definitely the highlight of our sightseeing experience during our visit to Rome. I was a little dubious whilst reading the description as it stated that you will be basically traversing back and forth across Rome and I thought you had to walk. This was not the case, to my joy. To get to the different places on the tour, a tour bus was provided, with a commentary of the story and the history of certain parts of Rome that were relevant to the story.
There were two tour guides as our group was fairly large, but our guide, Roberto, was amazing. He was able to immerse you in the story of Angels and Demons with ease, and he was so funny that it just made the whole experience even more enjoyable.
When we arrived in Piazza Navona, we had a 15-30 minute break to chill out for a bit and were offered a complimentary drink, which was a nice surprise.
My favourite part of this trip was the Santa Maria della Vittoria church where the Ecstasy of Saint Theresa statue by Bernini was housed.
All in all, a must for all who are travelling to Rome. You will enjoy it immensely, and be laughing the entire time. You won't even notice the 4 hours go and by the end, you will be wishing for more.
Our tour guide Robert was very entertaining and full of information about Rome.
I would highly recommend this tour money well spent
This was an excellent tour. Our guide was Roberto, who knocked it out of the park. He was as entertaining as he was informative. He not only brought the book to life, but a bit of Rome history and kept our group captivated. We had a blast.
Excellent tour and Roman hospitality. Roberto is an expert tour guide and he brought the book to life. Thank you.
Very informative and quite a bit of fun. Our guide Roberto spoke English very well, he was engaging and even dramatic as he switched between describing the book and actual history. Even if you haven't read the book you will have a very good time.
Very good. The guide was a wealth of information, and very entertaining.
If I could give a 6 star I would to this tour. Roberto, our guide was so passionate about the Angels and Demons book he kept us enthralled throughout the tour. He was so good I forgot that we were talkng about a Book//movie, I wanted to know more about the history!
Funny American tour guide that was full of knowledge! Great tour!! Maybe a little rushed.
Amazing tour, de-bunked the book and takes you to so many places!
It is the guide that makes or breaks a tour. Roberto was the best guide we had out of the 7 tours we took on our 10 day Italy vacation. His command of the English language(as a native Italian) and theatrical approach to presenting the book, with the true history of Rome, made for a great tour.
This tour was awesome. Roberto was great, He was funny and informative and I enjoyed how he told the story as well as gave us a fun history lesson. I recommend this tour even if you haven't read the book.
This tour offered a nice balance of walking and then traveling by bus. The stories our tour guide told were excellent! It was a fun and memorable way to see Rome and I highly recommend it.
This tour was awesome. I learned so much history and saw many beautiful churches. The guides were very entertaining and engaging.
Massimo was a very knowledgable and entertaining guide! We learned so much about the landmarks in the book and enjoyed every part of this tour.
Setting the scene at the beginning was worthwhile as it put in to context the differences between the book and the film. Roberto was fantatstic as he did not just tell us what happened but he acted as if he was there at each of the stages.
It was also a great history lesson of Rome over the centuries.
Also the pub where we stopped for a drink was not a run of the mill tourist pub but a lovely place to sit which had a lot of character about it.
Would highly recommend anyone who is visiting Rome to go on this tour.
I would definitely do this tour again. I thought it might be a bit corny but the fantastic guide - Roberto- not only brought the book to life, but he also told us so much history of Rome, so much about the art and architecture and helped us discover the clever way Dan Brown 'mis-used' facts and truths in order to make his book work. We bused and walked around the city for hours and all of it was fascinating. I would recommend you take a water bottle and perhaps pack something to nibble on. Roberto was so great that I went back to the hotel and booked into the tour he was doing the next day to Pompeii.
Our tour guide was Mike who made the it fun but very informative. When on the bus Robert (the other tour guide) would talk and give you more in depth info but still keep you interested. If you want to cover some of the key points of Rome in a short time this is brilliant. Highly recommend
This tour was the best tour I have done in all of Europe! Robert, our guide, was phenomenal! He had such an amazing breadth of knowledge, and went well beyond basic explanations of things. He was brilliant at interpreting the book, all with such great humor!!! Bravo!
Fantastic tour blending city information along with highlights from the book. Nicely organized with very competent local experts.
This tour was very informative; thought provoking; and entertaining. Mike was a font of knowledge and amusing when pointing out the flaws in Dan Brown's artistic licence!! Well worth the money and useful to book the tour early in your stay to then plan return visits and to explore other attractions. :-)
