Excellent intelligent tour guide. He had a fantastic grasp of history and truly cared about the group dynamics. We treasure the San Clemente and Catacombs tours as an exquisite component of our Italian tour. Thank you

The tour was recommended as a must do. It did not disappoint. The tour of San Clemente was amazing. It was not crowded at all and the tour was wonderful. The catacombs and the Appian Way were also amazing stops on this tour. Fiona was a great guide. She was knowledgable and made learning fun.

San Clemente was really interesting, to descend to the lower levels and go back in time. Our guide was very professional and informative. Catacombs also very cool, though wish we could have spent a bit more time there.
