A wonderful way to start our trip to Rome. Our whole family enjoyed the tour and we went back and visited many of the sights the next day to see them in the daytime.
was easy to find the tour where it started . fantastic , humorous, knowledgeable tour guide who made the tour even more interesting . you get to see Rome at night and all the stories - great add on will be catacombes which isnt there in this tour
This tour was not our first choice for our very first tour and venturing out into beautiful Rome on October 21, 2016, but we were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed ourselves. We previously purchased an evening tour to include the 'pretty' attractions and gelato but it was cancelled by the operator. However, this tour, although dark in nature, was incredibly interesting, even suspenseful at times. And you can visit all of the common stops on the gelato tour easily on your own. Each stop was architecturally rich in character and steeped in history. Our tour with Ahmet was true to description, visiting all of the sites mentioned and several unmentioned. I will not comment specifically on the history he shared at each as that could 'give away' the stories and suspense. I will say that Ahmet's wonderfully energetic personality is what made the tour exceptional. Anyone can regurgitate history but it takes personality and passion to make it this enjoyable. He was able to make dark history truly fun - not scary at all. We laughed often but make no mistake, he is very much a subject matter expert. We also felt very safe on this tour as Ahmet pays close attention to his group. Mind you, this tour took place after dark in some pretty narrow, dark, mostly deserted alleys. Ahmet also shared practical tips about Rome so as not to get taken advantage of as tourists. For a single mom traveling with a teenage daughter, we are very appreciative that we got off the beaten path in Rome and had the pleasure of Ahmet's company! THANKS AHMET!
One of the most fun things we did in Rome! Our guide was great and we really enjoyed walking around the city learning obscure history. We took our 11 year old, not scary at all, and not a ghost hunting tour, more stories from the past about people who left their mark on Roman history. We booked this at the last minute and I'm so glad we did!
Barbara has a passion for the city of Rome. She mad the stories come alive. I figured that this tour would be more geared toward my teenage son, but we all enjoyed the tour. I highly recommend it!
The Guide Sabrina is very friendly and engaging. She is very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and recommend it.
This was awesome!! Our tour guide was McKayla and she was SOO WONDERFUL! She did a great job making the tour informative of history, while also telling us the spooky stories and myths of the past. We loved this tour and it really was a highlight of rome. It was especially awesome to see the streets at night while with a tour guide and feeling safe. We really loved this tour and it was in large part thanks to our wonderful guide!
Great tour!! Our tour guide was very informative and very knowledgable. I would really recommend taking this tour when you are in Rome!
Tomaso was great - informative and interesting, my kids, 12 and 15, really enjoyed it. Was great to find out about Bruni.
The tour was amazing! Our guide could not be more perfect for this tour.
We took this tour on July 7th with Ahmed. He was a fabulous guide, and walked us around areas of Rome at night while entertaining us with ghost stories and legends. We went to places that we would not have normally gone to, and it was a great way to spend an evening in Rome. I do wish that it started at 8:00 PM instead of 9:15 PM, as it makes for a very long day.
Our guide Makayla was wonderful! You walk around and she stops in certain spots to tell you stories . It was fun, I would probably do this tour again.
We took this tour our first night in Rome. It was fun to see parts of the city we would have missed on our own. Our guide Ana was knowledgeable, and kept our interest.
fantastic - well worth the money - guide Andy really informative and made the tour interesting taking you to places you probably wouldn't visit on a normal tour - made us sign up for their website ready for when we either visit Rome again or somewhere else in Italy.
fun tour for the first night in Rome. Andy told great stories and it was great to see the darker side of Rome. Not Scary!
Such a great tour! Be prepared for lots of walking and you don't enter any buildings, but you learn so much from standing outside and being transported back in time by the guide's colorful stories. Barbara was awesome!!! So passionate and smart! Only bad thing... At the end, nobody offered tips to her so I felt awkward being the first and only person to tip..... She didn't ask for tips and now I feel so guilty that I didn't give her a tip... She deserved it!
We really enjoyed this and our guide was excellent.It is quite a fast paced tour but interesting without being too intense. Any questions we had were answered intelligently and politely. I would recommend this to everybody. It was Rome from a different perspective.
Great fun! See parts of Rome that you probably wouldn't walk...and hear great stories. Well worth your time!
This was an awesome tour, because it's a shorter tour, you actually retain a lot of the information that your learning about. Nice walk through tour a section of Rome that ends at the bridge of angels, which you see in the movie Angels and Demons.

Great job--although not much about ghosts, the stories were wonderfully told, and the pace was just right. A wonderful way to spend an evening in Rome
