This tour was fantastic! Jeanette was so knowledgeable and so much fun- we really enjoyed this tour. So did our 18-year-old grandson! There was World War II history and ancient history and everything in between. Jeanette was a real charmer and I would have enjoyed spending a day with her or more.
Even though we covered the same neighborhoods with Viator's small group food walking tour not to be missed!, we found the history fascinating and the tour guide delightful. We really like the small groups as opposed to the larger ones.
A real eye opener! I never realised the history of this part of Rome's past. Janette apologies if I've misspelt really knows her stuff and made the whole tour really entertaining.
Our tour guide, Jeanette, was great. Very informative, amusing and sassy. We walked to places we wouldn't have visited and her recommendations were spot on. All in all a very good way to see some of the less well known, but still interesting, parts of Rome.
This tour was amazing. The tour leader was extremely knowable on the subject matter. Also a good story teller who has a passion for this history. She really brought the area and history to life. A
The tour guide was excellent. She gave us information and showed us things that no guide book could. A very enjoyable and interesting 3 hours. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Rome and who is looking for a different perspective on the history of this fabulous city.
This tour was cancelled due to a lack of participation. We travelled in December, which was in the low season.
Our guide, with a Scandiavian name, was really very knowledgeable about every place on the tour. She was really an excellent guide. I certainly felt I got a good exposure to the Ghetto and Trastevere.
An amazing tour. This was my second visit to Rome and this tour was the highlight. Jeanette our guide was fantastic. Her knowledge and passion for Rome was great. The restaurant she recommended at the end of the tour was beautiful!! I would recommend this tour to anyone!
Excellent. Interesting mix of buildings and stories. She made the ghetto come alive, despite the majority not being Jewish, and Trastevere is somewhere that all visitors should go to, but with advice on where to go and how not to be ripped off. We went back two days later for another look. It's not the Roman fora or the Vatican or the Roman temples - it's where much more ordinary people lived and still live. The tour guide was really good. She even negotiated with the local umbrella salesman for a greatly reduced price when the rain fell!
Fantastic tour. Brings the Ghetto and life there into perspective. Also showed a totally different side of Rome in Trastevere. We had a great guide from Michigan who brought it all to life for us. Would recommend this to anyone. Wear comfortable shoes as there is lots of walking.
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and took us round interesting areas we would not have found on our own. Would definitely recommend to.other visitors to Rome.
Nice tour. Very pleasant guide. Pace was good, especially since this was the second tour of the day. It was nice to see and feel the quieter areas of Rome at dusk and in the early evening. The Jewish Ghetto was quite interesting. Check out the kosher Gelato. Getting to hear evening vespers in the two churches we visited was a very pleasing respite.
An excellent tour with an excellent guide. This tour was a highlight of our stay in Rome.
We enjoyed every minute of the tour. We only had three days to spend in Rome, and the tour was one of the highlights. I can strongly recommend it, even if one has more time than we did to spend in this fascinating city.
Our guide was very knowledgable and provided a lot of information on the area. We were very happy with this tour.
Very pleasant and informative tour. Initially, i was surprised that the tour didn't start until 6::00 p.m., but that was the perfect time to go--less traffic and fewer crowds. We even got to hear a group of nuns singing their nighttime prayers at St. Cecilia's Church (across the river from the ghetto).
If I go back to Rome, i will take the separate tour offered hourly in the synagogue. It wasn't included on our tour because, I guess, the synagogue doesn't want an outside group running it''s tours while they are running theirs. Our tour guide was upfront about explaining that the synagogue offered its own tours and that it would not be part of ours.
