Such an amazing tour- defiantly a must see and do. Our guide was great, spoke good English and easy to understand. He was full of information and little tid bits and even had an iPad with him to show us extra pictures and explain things visually. He was able to answer every question we had.
The morning section of this tour was fantastic. We had such an enthusiastic guide for the tours of the colosseum and the forum. It was great!
The afternoon walking tour of the Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and the squares was a bit of stretch. There was definitely not enough content to justify a 4 hours walking tour. It was okay but I would recommend other people to only do the morning tours because you can easily do the attractions covered in the afternoon tour on your own with a map.
Marvelous! Dark Rome is world class--unsurpassed by any other such company we've used worldwide.

This tour is awesome...but exhausting. We ended up not feeling well after the first one and rescheduling the second tour for a later day (with a fee, but it was worth it! Best $40 nap ever.) We had Tatiana as our tour guide who is super patient, and super knowledgable. Massimo was our guide for the second half and it ended up being a very small tour - just four people including us. One of the highlights of our trip...and gave us a really great overview/lay of the land of Rome.
We couldn't have asked for better tour guides. Well worth doing
We had Nickolo in the morning and Francesca in the afternoon. They were both great and entertaining. Definitely worth it.
Both tour guides (one for the morning and Damiano for the afternoon) were very informative, knew their history and were fluent in English. Highly recommended. Skipping the lines was very important.at the Colosseum.
Both tour guides were highly educated and informative, and spoke fantastic english! Lots of walking, but a fantastic tour, especially if your time in Rome is limited.
If you only take one tour in Rome, this should be it. You see the most amazing sites - the Colisseum and the Forum, the Trevi fountain etc. You walk on the same stones the Romans did 2000 years ago; you see where the gladiators fought, you see ancient architecture that is still standing! It's a lot of walking, but it's a slow pace, and you learn so much about each site. We had lots of time to take pictures and rest for a couple of minutes if necessary. I highly recommend this tour.
Given the heat and horrendous crowds this was a great tour. Maria demonstrated superb knowledge and patience in navigating the group around the thronging ancient sites. Without a guided tour much of the sites would remain a pile of rubble but she animated the places and the people who occupied them and really created for us a vivid picture of the glories of Ancient Rome. the afternoon tour was enthusiastically led by the vibrant Nina who shared her love of Rome by leading us to the great highlights of the Pantheon, Trajen's column, The Spanish Steps, The Trevi Fountain and much more. We did this at the end of our time in Rome and wished we had begun with it. On all of our tours in Rome we found the guides to be highly professional and superbly qualified. We were really enriched by all of the tours and can only imagine what we would have missed if we had attempted it all on our own.
Very organised guide made sure we all enjoyed experience. Learnt so much and information made place far more interesting.
Both of these tours were absolutely outstanding! Both our guides, Patrizia and Nina aka Mama Bear are archaeologists. They were extremely knowledgeable, thorough, well organized, and always had our comfort and safety in mind.
We had very exelent guide, she known the history very well and it was very good tour. Tour was exelent and intresting. The most of all we liked the first part of tour in Coliseum and Roman Forum. I highly recommend this tour as it is intresting and most of all due to skip the line option.
Also the second part of tour was very nice and we enjoyed it. Giudes are speeking Eanglish very well and are very helpfull and kind.
