This tour was offered through Dark Rome. The meeting place on the directions say in the square above the subway for the morning tour which is actually a circular area above the line :) thought I'd mention since quite a few people were confused. Giulia was our morning guide. Very good tour of the Colosseum and very knowledgable guide. She had lots of great pictures to help you I vision what it looked like in ancient times. Morning tour also includes the Roman forum. Afternoon tour led my Damien. This tour brings you to the major attractions like the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, and Pantheon. We saw the sight on our own but you miss a lot without a guide. Overall great. Anything Dark Rome tour company led was fantastic!
Claudia, our guide, was excellent and very knowledgable. The sound system was perfect for such a busy place. Couldn't fault it - will definitely use Viator again.
Two great tours in one day! Both of the guides were very knowledgeable and made the venues even more interesting. Each tour was well devised and exceeded my expectations. Thank You for adding to my enjoyment of Rome.
David our tour guide for the Colosseum portion was fun and interesting. He took a somewhat gruesome subject and added some levity. His knowledge helped with the understanding of events and why. To visit these sights without a guide to explain what you are looking at is only cheating yourself. The afternoon walk with Simon (our guide) through the streets of Rome was invaluable. Simon was very interesting and passionate about the city and it's history/ treasures. We walked to many sights that would have been impossible to find on our own. Well worth it!
Definitely recommend this package! Saw all the major sights and even got free ice cream towards the end for the tour. Both tour guides were extremely helpful and packed with knowledge. Sorry I forgot both your names! I went alone so was able to make friends too. Heads up, will take all day!
A knowledgable, well-spoken and entertaining guide made for a fantastic walking tour of ancient Rome. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with a taste for history.
Again, Igor made this tour come alive with his passion and rich details of every site visited....could not recommend this more! Also our afternoon guide was great and so cute and full of the spirit of Rome...I think her name was something Grace.Thanks and keep up the great work of informing all!
This was a great tour to take, especially for my first time visiting Rome as we saw a ton of stuff in just one afternoon. Mariella was our tour guide for the morning portion (Colosseum, Roman Forum, etc.) and true to previous reviews, she was amazing! She gave us so much information and history, her enthusiasm for the topics was contagious. In the afternoon, we were shown around many of the piazzas by Marina. She was a wonderful tour guide as well, she kept us laughing and also provided a lot of historical information as well. I would definitely recommend this tour, particularly for those visiting Rome for the first time.
Our tour guide for the morning was outstanding - his experience as an archeologist made his comments and insights compelling.
The Colosseum and ancient Rome were awesome. Our tour guide (David) was fantastic. He had tremendous knowledge about all aspects of ancient Rome, culture, architecture, history, etc. His ability to recall facts and figures was amazing. Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour was very nice. It hit all of the must see sights with a stop for some of the best gelato on the square at the Pantheon. The guide was very pleasant and extremely informative about Rome. Wear comfortable shoes; combining these tours made for a FULL day of walking! We highly recommend these tours!
Our tour guide Claudia was great! She is smart and knows so much about the area - Learned a lot about the colosseum and the forum, hearing about all the things that took place here was amazing.
This tour is a great way to get oriented to central Rome and to see most of the famous sites at the same time. My wife and I did this on the first day we were there and from then on were able to get around on our own as far as seeing anything that we wanted to see again on our own. The guides, Claudia and Nina were fantastic. Very knowledgable and friendly with a good sense of humour. Both tours started and ended at the times indicated - which makes it easier to plan other things the same day. If you are not worried about a couple of 2 hour walks on the same day then this is a great option.
