We really enjoyed our tour, seeing the places referred to in the book and movie. Our guide spoke English clearly and knew his stuff!
My wife and I had read the book and saw the Angels and Demons movie before coming to Rome and were so happy with this wonderful tour of churches, statues, fountains, bridges, castles, and other sites in the Eternal City. Our tour guide Michael provided a thorough overview of the book pointing all of the historical inaccuracies due to artistic license taken by Dan Brown and Hollywood in presenting the story. Michaels extensive knowledge of Italian art history and his sense of humor provided an enjoyable experience. A visit to the magnificent Castel Sant'Angelo with one of the most spectacular views of Rome and the Vatican was an excellent way of concluding the tour.
Our guide was amazing. He was perfectly fluent in both English and Italian and sorry but that was a MASSIVE help. Most locals in Rome can't speak English this clearly so it was so nice to have someone actually fluent in both. He knew the book like the back of his hand and all of the history of Rome to go with it. Very highly recommended.
Brilliant. Great Guide - Roberto - learnt so much, not just about the book, but the locations. highly recommended.
A very interesting tour that allowed us to visit some Rome churches that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. I feel that tour attendees should be somewhat familiar with the Dan Brown book or movie to be able to better follow the discussions. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave life to what we were viewing. A most enjoyable way to spend a morning in Rome.

An amazing tour, our tour guide Robert was very knowledgeable and he spoke English very well. It was a great way to see some unique sites in Rome.
This was a fabulous tour. Our guide was Roberto who managed the difficult task of blending a novel with the history of Rome in a fun and very entertaining way. We learned a great deal about Rome following the steps of Robert and Vittoria. We will never read the book in the same way again! Thanks Roberto - the best tour we've ever been on.
Amazingly informative experience - best tour we did in Rome - Worth every Euro!
The chaps that guided us were excellent
Very happy that we did this tour. Gave us the lay of the city of Rome and our guide was great. Related it back to the movie - both fact and fiction. Loved it.
We loved every minute of this tour. The aptly named Robert brought the sights to life with his depiction of the Angels and Demons book. His passion for the story was matched only by his extensive knowledge of all things Roman. A novel and exciting way to see this awesome city.
We loved this tour.. Robert was a fantastic storyteller and wove a suspenseful and interesting story as we toured some beautiful and surprising spots in Rome. I had never read the book but my husband has read it twice and we both enjoyed the tour! Roberto is fantastico!
Excellent. Roberto is a wonderful story teller. Full of knowledge. Great way to see Part of Rome
Roberto should be on stage. He made the tour come alive. Valuable information which enriched my next two weeks in Rome.

Best tour guide of our 5-week trip in Europe. Transportation between sights was a pleasant surprise. Thank you Roberto for a fantastic tour.
Dimitri was a great tour guide and story teller. Allowed us to visit some great out of the box places in Rome. Loved it!
This is a fabulous tour weather you read the book Angels and Demons by Dan Brown or not. The amount of information on this tour was astounding. The tour guide was excellent, he spoke great English, was very knowledgeable and informative. Thumbs up!
Great fun... lots of fun information and spots you might not see on any other tour. Read the book and join the fun!!
Good different perspective on Rome
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.
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!
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.
