This was a really fun tour. especially if you have read the book. The guide was fun and gave us lots of little extras. The best thing though, was when we got to the Vatican the Pope was Saying mass. I felt like a teenager seeing the beatles the first time. It was fabulous.
Was quite sceptical at the time of booking this tour but it turned into one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. Our guide Melanie was just brilliant, enthusiastic, Knowledgeable and fun.
Would 100 book another tour with Viator
Melanie our tour guide was just great. The way she narrated Dan Brown's story switching from fiction to history was really captivating. I would very much recommend this tour and it's one of my favorites.

Great tour, very knowledgeable and interesting guide!!!!
Melanie was great. Best tour-guide, by far, we had in 3 weeks. St. Peter's was closed due to canonization and they planned an alternative trip to Tiber island, which was great. Even if you are unfamiliar with the book, this is a tour to take. Melanie can explain the book in a few minutes and the people that haven't read it followed.
Roberto was a fantastic guide providing the narrative of the books for those on the tour who had only seen the film, which this tour focuses on, in a fun and entertaining manner. Along with taking us on the journey of the book he painted a beautiful picture of Rome's past with all of his knowledge shared throughout the tour. He was happy to answer any questions in detail and gave us an in-depth insight into Rome, showing us how Dan Brown used Rome's history and some of it's many Bernini sculptures within the book.
The air-con coach to take us from place to place was welcomed between destinations, as well as the gelato/drink stop in a small cafe, as we visited during the hot, sunny season!
Regardless of if you have seen the book or the film, I highly recommend this tour. If possible I would book for one of the first days of your Rome visit as you get a good overview of Rome and can use it to get to grips with where things are. Myself and my friend being from two ends of the Angels and Demons spectrum, one being a huge fan of the book and film and the other having seen neither, found that this was out highlight of our Rome trip.
All in all, don't miss this tour!
This was an absolutely wonderful tour. Claudia P is a gifted story teller. We wish she did a million more tours. She is the guide you wish you could drag around Rome everywhere with you. The tour was also great - excellent grounding for Rome, withe info at every corner. The gelato came just in time! Thank you so much, I would buy this tour again now if I was coming to Rome again.
It was very fun. My son and I enjoyed it very much. We were both Dan Brown's fans. The guide was very nice and speaks perfect English. Interesting to know lot of the details of Rome and its truth.
Anyone who has read the book or seen the film should really go on this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very entertaining too. We found the church of the illuminati! It was good having a coach pick us up and take us on to the next part of the story. We learned a lot on this trip - FANTASTIC!
