Our tour guide Maria was amazing with our kids on this tour. She structured the tour to make it very interactive for our 11 and 14 year old kids and very educational and very entertaining. It was a great way for kids to learn about Roman and Greek history. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome.
Maria was our super guide. The whole tour was so much fun that not only our 2 girls aged 10 and 13 enjoyed it but us adults too. I'd have to say this tour is really worth it very informative and engaging.
Marie was great! The kids had a good time and especially liked the trinkets. I personally learned a lot and though I might not book a kid tour again, I will definitely book guided tours wherever I travel from now on.
we signed up for this tour last minute as we were finding that our hotel concierge could get any kid-tours for us in Rome. Maria was great getting our 10 year old twins interested in ..another museum. She kept us and our kids interested throughout the Capitoline Museum even though it was very hot day. Absolutely recommend Viator's kids-tours for any sight.
Our guide was Maria, who was absolutely amazing! She was so attentive to our 12 year old daughter, who already knows so much from reading all of Rick Riordan's series of books. Our daughter loved discussing all the stories behind the masterpieces of this Museum! For kids and adults-don't miss this!
