Reservation changed - it worked out!
Samantha

Although our original plan was changed because not enough people signed up for the walking by tour, we were upgrading to the bus tour. We enjoyed the drive around the city, and although we had wanted to walk through the garden, we will definitely be back and can do this on our own. We also enjoyed our tour guide’s thorough description of the sites we visited and all of the details she added. Our group was relatively large (maybe 15-20 people) and she did a good job making sure everyone was aware of the logistics and things we needed to know to get back with the group after our free time at the Acropolis. We also enjoyed the tour of the museum and were grateful for the time she took to point out the highlights of the exhibits. Overall, we were pleased with the tour, and will definitely be back to fill in the places we would have seen on the walking tour.

Walking Tour was inspired experience.

Our guides for both parts of our tour were so knowledgeable about the history of Rome, we couldn't have been happier with our experience. It was disappointing to not get into St. Peter's Basilica due to a religious holiday (make sure to check the Catholic calendar prior to booking) but our guide made up for it by spending extra time going through every detail possible at the Vatican Museum.

This was the worse tour I have ever taken. The tour guide was rude. She walked too fast for an elderly group. Would not answer our questions. She told us just to watch and she would tell us what we were looking at later. We like to know what we are watching. When we stopped to take a picture she told us to come back and take pictures on our old time. Spend your money elsewhere. This tour was a waste of money, we would have done better on our own

Our tour guide was terrible. She was a short older lady with brown/red hair and kept walking ahead and leaving everyone behind. She would tell us that we can stop and get water and then start walking and leave people behind. She was knowledgeable but I do not recommend this tour.
