This was a stimulating easy-paced trip by coach from Rome to Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este. Our guide understood both his material and how much to tell us. There was a time and place for lunch. The tour company contacted us very late, by email, with information about the departure point. We could easily have missed this.
Was a fabulous day out at Tivoli. Very well organised and so worth visiting Hadrians Villa and Villa D and #39;Este. The waterfalls and gardens at Villa D and #39;Este were absolutely stunning and the guide was full of knowledge with all the history at Hadrians Villa. Really enjoyed the full day trip.
The tour was fantastic. Alfredo was our guide and was excellent. The bus trip to Tivoli was 40mins away from Rome and the town is a lovely welcome break from the city. Lots of choice for food for the hour-long lunch break in the town. Fantastic, well worth the money. Lots of walking though!
Alfredo was an excellent guide and took very attentive care. Highly recommend this tour if you're going to Tivoli
This was a great tour with Vincenzo who was extremely knowledgeable and shared so much with us.
We highly recommend this tour and would love to do it again ourselves next time we visit Rome and will definitely use Viator again for other trips. Grazie Vincenzo - you made it special and unforgettable.
It started as a cloudy and rainy day, but it did not matter, we had a great guide that led us through the ruins with great information! The sun finally came out when we got to Tivoli Gardens, it did not matter though because even clouds could not take the stunning views away from this beautiful property. My daughter said, if I was a fountain or a butterfly, I would want to live here. We are a family of 5 and we all enjoyed our day.
Great day trip out of the city of Rome to the Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'Este. Our guide, Felix, was outstanding- knowledgeable and funny. I will say that this tour requires a lot of walking and significant climbs up and down. We had several in our group who were not able or prepared for the level of activity and held back our group somewhat. Villa D'Este is magical- bring your cameras!
This was another pleasant surprise. Not originally something we had planned, but so glad we did it. The gardens and fountains at Villa D'Este are amazing. We were in time to hear the fountain sing. It's just so awesome that in an age with no technology what they accomplished. Hadrian's Villa is still being excavated and it is also a wonderful experience. So much history and beauty. The gardens there are lovely as is the fountain.
Very nice trip. Both sites beautiful. Lots of steps at Villa d'Este.
Unfortunately, it rained the entire day - but this was still a highlight of our trip to Italy. The guide, Ariana, was amazing. Trained in archaeology, she was able to give us great information on Hadrian's Villa. She had actually done some work on the site. The tour of Villa d'Este was also wonderful, Ariana was patient when we wanted to stop and take pictures. The bus was comfortable: everything ran on time in spite of the rain. We would definitely take another tour with this company.
Guide was superb ,very clear and full of background information whole trip was a delight
This tour was amazing! The small group made for easy traveling and the guide was super friendly. An included lunch would have been better, but the kindness of the driver and guide made up for it. It definitely recommend!

This was an amazing tour. Made even better by our wonderful guide Arianna who brought the whole story of Hadrians Villa alive and was very informative and great fun. Villa d'Este was beautiful and again Arianna was a great guide giving us plenty of information. I would have no hesitation in recommending this tour as a must do if you are going to Rome.
Great tour, interesting and an excellent, informative and obviously knowledgeable guide. Plenty of time to look around, lots of good and intwrsting information and a lovely day .. Thank you
Our tour guide was a native of Rome and spoke English well. He answered all of the tour group's questions clearly and was helpful in every way. It rained while we were in the gardens and he was obviously sympathetic that we would not be able to see all of the fountains in the garden. He was concerned for our safety with the rain soaked marble steps. The next day we saw him in Rome and he remembered us and said hello. He is a gem!
Excellent tour with good experienced guide.Villa d'Este and Hadrian's Villa are a must see when visiting Rome.I wish I could stay longer especially around beautiful pools in both places.
Great tour! Guides friendly and knowledgeable and suggested great places for lunch! Good timing: saw much and didn't feel rushed! Good job!
Great day at these two villas. Not only is it worthwhile to get out of the city for a day, the grounds are
remarkable and add a completely engaging insight to the lives of the noblemen. Buy your tickets as early as you can as the pricing increases as the date approaches. even months out. Recommended..
