Awful. The tour guides at the Catacomb di San Callistro posted 3 months prior to our date that all Catacombs tours would be shortened, and certain areas of the Catacombs would be closed. Viator and/or its agent Romaetravel, did not inform us, nor was the pick up service driver informed. We are waiting resolution of this matter for a refund.
We are sorry you were a bit disappointed in the tour.
As it is written on the voucher, depending on the availabilities, you can visit two of the catacombs, maybe that day the ones pictured in the ad were not opened to the public.
All the catacombs are all very beautiful and well preserved so we make sure it can always be a good experience.
We're also sorry that the driver arrived a bit late, unfortunately it was probably an inconvenience caused by heavy traffic.
Visited 2 catacombs - find out when you get there all bones have been removed. See nothing like the picture. Had a driver that was just learning to speak English. Nice guy but had to have conversation. Save money and visit catacomb on own off hop on hop off. IMO - this was a ripoff
We are sorry you did not like the catacombs.
We offer a pick up and drop off service from our customer's hotel to the catacombs and we provide the tickets to go inside. Once you are inside, an official guide provided by the catacombs organization, accompanies you during the visit.
As you know, catacombs were used by christians during the Christian persecution more than 2000 years ago. As time passes, catacombs where abandoned. Some of the bones had been moved in some churches in Rome as relics and due to the abandon, catacombs were probably robbed. These are probably the reasons why you did not find the ancient roman bones inside. However catacombs are well preserved and you could easly imagine how romans used them.
