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.
Excellent tour guide! I think her name was Priscilla. Thoroughly enjoyable tour.
Our guide Marketa was the perfect guide, friendly and knowledgable and took extra time over the allotted 3 hours with us. It was a wonderful tour just to be about in Rome and hear the history, especially of the Jewish Ghetto. We stopped along the way at a very local cafe for espresso with our tiny group and enjoyed our guide and each other's company. Marketa recommended a restaurant she had never been to but heard good things about and we went back to Trastevere to Spirito di Vino and had a wonderful dinner. Part of this restaurant was once a synagogue and the building dated back to 80BC. Fabulous recommendation! The owner even gifted us with a bottle of wine as we left. Truly a perfect ending to a wonderful tour!
Our guide Viviana is an archeologists, working in one of the universities in the city - who better to guide us through the history of Rome through its streets and piazzas? The tour was informative and we learned a lot, and got a glimpse of seeing hidden gems in Rome's side-streets.
