My husband and I spent two weeks in Europe and this was BY FAR the best tour we went on! We spent our morning with the lovely Chiara, seeing the ancient Roman sights, and our afternoon was with Christina at the Vatican. We were blown away by both ladies’ extensive knowledge and great energy. EXCELLE
Chiara did the first half of the day with the Coloseum, Forum and other attractions. Christina did the Vatican. Both guides were knowledgeable, worked at perfect pace and made our group feel intimate with the history. I would recommend this tour to get a rich and deep but timely review of the city.
We had a long list of things we wanted to see and do when in Rome. This tour allowed us to tick off more about half of that list in the first day of our 3-day visit to this wonderful city. Our tour guide in the morning was Chiara and she was absolutely fantastic. The first two stops were the Colosseum and then the Foro Romano and we family of 4 shared our guide with a lady from the US, so it was only 5 of us. The tour was really personal and we learned so much. The rest of the morning we had Chiara to ourselves.
I don't remember the guide's name in the afternoon, but this was less personal by its nature, because we were in a larger group with equipped with intercoms. That was fine, but there are a lot of galleries in the Vatican and the tour can only give you a relatively brief overview. Still, you get a wealth of information and plenty of time to enjoy the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica on your own.
To be fair, the tours are all pricey, but if you were to buy all the tickets separately and do the research and then queue up for all these places, you would probably need two days rather than one and it's probably not that much cheaper anyway.
We thoroughly enjoyed it, but we ended up walking nearly 26k steps that day each or 19 kilometres if you prefer. If you are happy to do a lot of walking, which we were, I can highly recommend this tour for you.
Fantastic tour! The best of Rome in one day. If you have limited time in the city, I HIGHLY recommend this tour. Tour guides were very knowledgeable, told interesting tours, and were funny and enjoyable to listen to.
Brilliant tour, really enjoyed the day. Julian was very knowledgeable and really passionate about the history of Rome. He was very attentive and took the time to explain any questions asked. He did not just talk about the history but explained some of the myths and ensured we knew what was fact and truth. Irene was our guide for the afternoon and she took us around the Vatican and the sistine chapel. She defiantely knew her stuff and had great humour.
The day is very long so ensure you are ready for all the walking,if not i suggest you do it in two half days. Really really loved it
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide Anthony was entertaining if a little eccentric!
Best way to cover all the historic sites in short time. Our guide for first half of the tour around Colosseum was Giuliano. He knew the history well and kept it interesting for good 3 hours. Second half of the tour covering sites around Vatican was well organised too. Our guide was Maurano.
If you have time, take 2 half day tours as it requires lot of walking.
It was well organised and our guide was excellent. It did what was promised. My grandson thought it was really exciting and everything was well explained.
We were only in Rome for a few days so booked this to see the most of the city. It was a long day and not one for those who can and #39;t walk far but it and #39;s definitely an easy and educational way to see Rome. If you and #39;re not into religion then it may be worth skipping the Vatican as it and #39;s long and dull.
This trip was excellent. If you want to see all of the main attractions in a short space of time this is perfect. Giuliano our guide was fantastic had great knowledge and spoke great English.
Best tour ever!
Our tour guide was Chiara, she is knowledgeable and loves what she is doing. She makes it really fun and enjoyable.
I recommend to book with Chiara if you can.
Extremely worth it, Both guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, in the morning we walked around Rome Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, etc which was beautiful, we had immediate access to all the places we went and walked around listening to our guide Chiara, she was really fun and knew everything like the back of her hand. In the afternoon we went to the Vatican City with Christina who was really friendly and fun as well, She had prepared a presentation about the Sistine Chapel which had great detail and explained all the paintings done by Michelangelo there. Due to the fact that it was a small group it made the experience so much better as it felt like it was more like a private tour. I would definitely recommend this tour for everyone and i would love to go back to Rome :
CHIARA WAS EXCELLENT. SHE WAS SPIRITED AND VERY EDUCATED. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO EVERYONE. SADLY BECAUSE OF TRANSPORTATION ISSUES WE HAD TO CUT OUR TOUR WITH CHRISTINA AT THE VATICAN SHORTLY, AND SHE WAS FANTASTIC TOO AND WAS ACCOMODATING TO SEEING US EARLIER.
This tour was not only informative but so fun! Loved the guide. It was like a comedy tour.
OMG. MAMAMIA. Chiara our guide was truly amazing. Thank you for your extensive knowledge, your personality and your hosportality. You are a credit to the touring industry. We loved every moment with her
A very full day! Covered a lot of ground and an enormous amount of information thanks to our knowledgable and entertaining guide Ciara. So much to see in such a small amount of time. Totally fascinating.
Great tour great guide the only way to see and understand what you are looking at
Great, long day. Ciara who showed us around the Colosseum and Forum was AMAZING!!!! She was so knowledgeable and even more so entertaining and funny. I wish she could guide every your I would ever go on - she was awesome.
Our guide for the Vatican, Vincenzo, had a ton of art history knowledge and made what could possibly a dry topic very interesting.
Great if you want to get your major Rome sites done in one day. But this is an ALL day thing - so get some rest and wear your walking shoes.
Both our tour guides were enthusiastic, professional and we had an enjoyable experience.
Chiara Rocks! We couldnt have been happier with our tour. We covered a lot of ground, say many sights but most importantly we felt like Chiara was showing us her hometown and neighborhood - because she was! She had so many insights that only a citizen of Rome would know. We understood what, but why, we learned correct pronunciations etc. The entire tour was well organized etc, but Chiara made it personal. Thank you!!
Tour was great. Kiara/Ciarra (spelling?) Was fun and engaging. Both guides were fluent in English.
Gesippe was amazing! He had great knowledge and it was clear how passionate he is about Roma. Thanks for a great tour of the collesium, Roman forum, pantheon, and trevi fountain!
My morning Collosseum walk with the amazing Chiara was great.
The afternoon tour the headpiece was different and unless within one metre of the guide you could not hear. Lucky the vatican speaks for itself. So the 5 stars for the 1st half. 1 star for the 2nd
This tour was absolutely incredible. Very informative guides. It was a very long and tiring day, but well worth it!!! Great option if you don and #39;t have a lot of time in Rome- really get to see a lot! Highly recommend.
