Tour made it easy to see the catacombs which are hard to reach on public transportation which was why I chose it. Glad that it also included St Mary Major and St John in Lateran and guide led those of us interested through the Holy Doors of each. Guide was knowledgeable and careful to keep us together, spoke English clearly.
Excellent guide really enjoyed the catacombs fairly small group could hear well.
Great tour and excellent guide. Very informative and put up with all my questions. If you like Christian history then this should be a must tour when in Rome.
Our guide was friendly, good sense of humor, very knowledgeable. The church stops were very interesting and exceeded expectations.
Absolutely astounding. We were the only ones at our tour so it made it more personal. We were very lucky due to it was a Jubilee year of Mercy - thus we were able to walk through the Holy Doors that normally happens every 25 years. St. John's was breathtaking, honestly pictures doesn't due it justice. St Mary Major was as beautiful in it's own way.
Our guide I can't remember her name, but she was think with brown hair, was to helpful and showed/shared with us information we would have past by if it wasn't for her. The catacombs were amazing bring a sweater since it gets cold down there. Everyone should visit the catacombs to fully understand the Christian and Pegan religion relationship. Wonderful.
I loved the afternoon Christian tour. Our guide Theresa was just perfect, she took great care of all the people . She knew so many answers. This tour could have lasted longer. We saw so many beautiful churches. We enjoyed the catacombs also. What a wonderful experience . You must see to believe. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Excellent tour! Guide was very knowledgeable! Very somber experience! Glad my daughter and I did the tour to appreciate what churches went through in the past. One annoyance - visitors who do not respect the rules! When asked NOT to take photos - means NO PHOTOS! This is one way Rome has been able to keep and maintain the infrastructures for next generations to see and appreciate. When this happened, the visitors should be reprimanded, embarrassed in front of the crowd and/or removed from the group!!! How rude and selfish these visitors are!!!! There should be someone at the end of the line for the tour, so that those who are at the end of the line taking photos will be caught. Why would any one want to take photos of burial grounds - disgusting!
Very good way to see several different, widely diverse religious sites. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Would have taken 3-4 times longer to take public transportation to get to the different sites on this tour.
Outstanding and uplifting tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and allowed us time to take everything in.
Excellent guide, Chiarra..........My husband and I loved this tour. Great to see the catacombs and also the beautiful basilica of St. John of Lateran and Santa Maria de Maggoria. Our guide was very imformative and we especially loved the tour company pickup at the hotel and drop off very near our hotel when the tour was over.
Tour was amazing, not long enough to see everything, needs to be a couple of hours longer, felt a little rushed. I would recommend doing this trip early in your visit so you can go back to the churches and spend more time. We did this on the last day - now we will just have to go back to Rome to see it again! :)
Our guide on the bus was very knowledgeable and her English was quite clear. Thank you for providing hotel pick-up service!
Excellent tour, well paced and most interesting. I learned a great deal..
very nice short tour in between the other ones. Guide was Franco, who went out of his way to assist a mildly disabled tour member, and overall was great
Our tour guide was excellent. We did the morning tour which was really nice since the afternoons in Rome seemed to be hot.
The tour was excellent. It was fascinating to drive on the Appian Way past Quo Vadis Domini where Peter is thought by tradition to have had a vision of Christ that moved him to return to Rome to face Nero's persecutors in his courageous martyrdom...Then visiting catacomb of Domitilla was most informative...finally... Short visits to St John of the Lateran ...seeing the Holy Staircase...and St Mary Major was a good overview. Rome is so big with so much to see. I can't imagine trying to see it without the help of a good tour. The guide was funny and informative. This was a good value contrary to the bad reviews given to the tour company for other tours. Conducted in a minivan... Comfortable, timely ... Very good!
I would recommend this to anyone! I was very happy with this. Our tour guide was great!
Great tour! Knowledgeable guide who incorporated the Christianity into what we were seeing.
