This is a great tour to take early in your trip to Rome because, as well as showing you the ancient sites and sights, it gives you a chance to orient yourself in the city. Our tour guide, Serafina, was knowledgable, amusing and worked hard to give us a sense of the social history of ancient Rome. As well as telling us the names of places, she told us how they were used and by whom, so we were encouraged to try to imagine 'what it was really like'. The group was a reasonable size, so that anyone who wanted to had a chance to pick her brains for more information. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Manuela was a perfect guide - patient, passionate and informative. The tour was interesting and I would definitely recommend going guided opposed to individually, and this tour was an excellent choice. This was my second tour with this company, and id highly recommend both.
Our tour guide- Laura- was our favorite of our entire Rome visit. She was super knowledgeable and enjoyed sharing her city with us. Lots of walking, but very informative. Worst part was finding a place to eat for lunch after all of that walking.
Tour guide David was excellent. Very informative, gave lots of background and info and made it fun. Really gave us some background and insight into what we were looking at whether it was the construction or the people who lived back then but he really made it interesting.
Excellent, Francesca was a great guide, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very articulate. she knew how to speak into the microphone, troubleshoot, and make the tour not seem like a cattle call. The best tour we had.
The tour was amazing. I thought I knew about the history of the colosseum and the forum but the tour guide (laura) really brought it to life. I would recommend it to anyone
The tour was very well organized and worth the money. The guide Alex was super and very informative and knowledgeable. Great explanations and illustrations as to what the ruins might of looked in their time. We got to skip the lines and see a lot. There is a lot of walking and good footwear and is outdoors. So dress appropriately. The tour included the Colosseum, Palatine hill and Forum.
What a great tour through so much history. The guide was excellent and very informative!
Our tour guide was amazing! We got to skip queues, didn't feel rushed, and we were flooded with amazing information. It made so much difference to know the actual history of the things we were looking at. Ancient Rome wouldn't have been the same without this tour. Highly recommended, worth every penny!
Great guide, full of interesting information and anecdotes, made it very interesting for whole family
Very Enjoyable! Great tour, loved the ruins as well. Our Tour Guide was very informative and Dark Rome Tours are the best. We did 3 while we were in Rome, best by far!
