It was a wonderful tour. The guide was knowledgeable and friednly. The bus trip was comfortable. Overall excellent
We loved our guide Alfredo.My 12 year old granddaughter and I consider Villa d'Este one of the highlights of our three week tour of Italy.
Sent you a review one week ago, cant see anything yet. The same last year - nothing appeared with my review - which both last year and this year were very positiv, since we were very satisfied. Kind regards from

Good guide, interesting day, learned a lot. Good bus, on time, no hassles...all good.
Really excellent tour. Alfreddo our guide was really nice, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We were in a small group and taken in an air conditioned coach, this was really handy as it was about 32-25 C in Rome. He gave an excellent commentary. Hadrian's villa was amazing. Nothing prepares you for the shear scale of the place. The town of Tivoli was quiet and the people were nice. Had some excellent pizza at the restaurant in front of Villa D'este. The Villa was amazing, so many fountains and water features. The gardens and architecture were amazing. Alfreddo was really informative and had a great time. A must see.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I have been to Rome before and wanted to do something I hadn't already done so I booked this tour. I am so glad I did. I loved seeing Hadrian's Villa and learn about his reign and his life. But the Villa D'Este was the pinnacle of this tour. The gardens are so beautiful. The English Speaking guide was brilliant, funny and very knowledgeable. A great day away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. Worth doing.
We had a lovely day visiting Hadrian's Villa and Tivoli Gardens. Our tour guide was lovely and very informative. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Elisabetta was excellent. She was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English and both Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Esta. Transport was very comfortable.
Wonderful places to visit! Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable of the history. The day was super hot and humid, but overall a very good trip into Tivoli!!
Fantastic tour of Villa d'Este and the beautifull gardens and fountains in Hadrian's Villa. Our tour guide Francesco was great and had so much patience with all the members of the tour. We had some older people that had difficulty with the steps and he arranged for a cart to drive them around. We highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Rome!
If you like ruins, you'll love it! If you like views from the top of a hill, you'll love it and if you love water features and gardens, you'll love it! Bit of everything for everyone on this tour!
Excellent Tour. Well organized. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and informative.
Well worth the cost.
An excellent tour with a very entertaining and knowledgeable guide. Just the right pace for the less mobile to be able to keep up, without holding up the younger element. Visiting the Villa Adriana first allowed us to see the progression from one era to another. Highly informative without being too intense.
Would have been nice to have just a little longer in Tivoli but it made the perfect wind down at the end of a busy week sightseeing.
Tivoli is gorgeous! I enjoyed Hadria's Villa, particularly the Egyptian inspired area. The Villa d'Este is enchanting! The. Water features are amazingly beautiful. I highly recommend this trip.
This was a really nice tour and a nice, quiet day trip away from the frenzy of Rome. Our tour guide, Viviana, was very knowledgeable about the sites and very friendly. My particilar favorite was the Villa d'Este with all it's incredible fountains and gardens. So beautiful!
This was an amazing low cost tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. The Tivoli part of the trip was more ruins, but the Hadrian's Villa was amazing with the scenery and the fountains. There were restrooms at the sites and the guide gives us enough time for picture taking. All in all, I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. You will enjoy it.
One of the top 2 tours we went on our Europe trip. Great guide. Short bus rides. Well paced walks. Very interesting information about the Hadrian's Villa complex and Hadrian and life in the times and the uses of the various parts of the complex. Villa d'Este gardens were delightful and very pretty- much better in my view than Boboli gardens. A lot of water and fountains and statues. We forgot a water bottle and hats, both of which are very useful on this tour.
Our guide Alfreddo provided a good level of information both on the bus and at the villas. We also had plenty of time to enjoy both villas. The free time in Tivoli was sufficient to visit one of the good places for lunch, or to view the town. The two villas are completely different and equally worth visiting. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our day.
Ariana was an excellent guide - personable, engaging, entertaining, informative - all important for a wonderful tour.

Excellent tour of Hadrian's and Villa dEste. Plenty of time to see Hadrian's Villa and would like more time to cover all to see at Villa dEste. Mobile audios were one of the best we have used on large group tours. Very knowledgeable guide. Not a long trip from Rome to the villas and recommend this day tour if in Rome.
I would highly recommend this tour! The guide was excellent and spoke very good English and both Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Esta in particular were beautiful. As both sites are outside of Rome they were much quieter then other sites. Well worth the money for the tour.
