Perfect, perfect, perfect. The guide was so friendly, and he really loved everything he was showing me. My tour included both Hadrian's Villa and the Villa d'Este, but because I was so much more interested in the former, he customized the schedule so we could spend the whole time among the ruins of the emperor's villa and he gave me an ultra-thorough tour.
We had an absolutely great time on this tour! Donald was our tour guide for both Hadrian's Villa and D'Este was fantastic and very knowledgeable. He has a lot of experience of both locations and it really made our tour exceptional. Our driver was Stephan and he had a treat of pastries and water waiting for us at the van after our Hadrian's tour. That was nice! I would not hesitate to take this tour again!
Our tour guide, Donald, has been guiding groups through Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este for many years, and it shows in his practiced and engaging delivery. The short drive outside of Rome is well worth the time to visit these two wonderful sites in a half-day tour.
half day tour was ok Hotel pickup goodfriendly driver daughter a little sketchy on some details little shy Tivoli tour guide was informative good sense of humour maybe bored tour promised 3 hours only got 2 with guide left on own at villa d'este without garden explanation
This was a wonderful tour. Our guide was interesting and had a great sense of the history of the area and a great sense of humor. We were driven in a very comfortable private limousine from Rome and back. Our only wish was that we could have spent a little more time at the Villa D'Este gardens.
