Our tour guide, Emilio, was very well-versed and passionate about the history of Ostia Antica. His friendly demeanor and fluent English made this in-depth tour very enjoyable, grazie Emilio!

Ended up being a private trip for our group of 6 in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. Emilio, our tour guide, took cues from the group as to our pace and interests. He was pleasant and professional as he shared the history of ancient Ostia and took time to answer individual questions. Took a break at the cafeteria and gave us time for snacks with no pressure to be at the bus by X time. Relaxed and friendly. By far, one of the best tours I've ever taken.

Very nice tour with a comprehensive look at an ancient city, different than Rome because nothing has been built over the top of it. Our guide back to ancient Ostia was Donald, who did a terrific job infusing us with his passion for the cite. We have been quite satisfied with all the tours we booked with Viator as well as their service: website, communications, changes, confirmations, etc. everything went smoothly making our trip that much more enjoyable.
