Fascinated by the ancient shopping precinct and the ancient restaurant - so similar in layout to current pubs. Great to be able to continue to explore at own rate and return to Rome when you are ready rather than be rushed through the tour.
Our guide, whose name I unfortunately have forgotten, was wonderful. He was on time to meet us and the tour was really informative. We liked the small group--there were 6 of us--and the flexibility of having our return train ticket so we could return to Rome whenever we chose, not necessarily at the end of the tour. Ostia was not overrun with other tourists, so it allowed us to explore and look without fighting the crowds that we encountered on tours in Rome. I really recommend a camera and comfortable shoes. The surfaces are very uneven and because we were there after a rainy night, there were lots of puddles to get around. I highly recommend this tour!
Wonderful tour! Our guide, Mike, was very professional, he gave us a lot of informations, and also told us very good jokes. It was a very pleasant morning.
In the afternoon we went to the see! Very nice and quiet...in October near the sea.
Worth a visit!!

We had a wonderful visit to Ostia Antica with Ahmed. He was very knowledgeable and interesting. Really felt that we got so much more out of the trip with him. The tour was well organized and paced perfectly. Ahmed was very accommodating and helpful to all in the group. The visit was like a stroll with a professor. Recommend Ahmed and this tour highly.
Excellent Trip. Our guide was very informative and the trip itself was relaxing and we learned a lot. Ostia is a small Pompeii and did not have the crowds which made it lovely.
excellent trip,great guide.very interesting site.early morning trip,the site was lovely and quiet.as good as pompei,another insight into the outstanding roman empire!
Better then Pompeii. No crowds and a great guide..
Great tour guide. Better than Pompeii. Thank you for an awesome day!
I really enjoyed visiting this lesser known ancient town. Our guide was Rebecca and she was very friendly and answered all our questions, and you could tell she enjoyed interacting with us and having a conversation not just repeating facts. She really made the tour special. The tour covers the best of the bulk of the town, and Rebecca had good advice on what we could see if we stayed after the tour. It is also a nice touch that this tour meets you in Rome and gets you on and off the right train at the right stops. I would definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent trip , very well preserved situs , interesting and usefull information from the guide,
Mike , an american living in Italy , so native english speaker .
