After reading the review I knew I wanted to do this tour as Dan Brown is one of my favourite authors.
We had Robert as our tour guide who was amazing, he quoted sections from the book and you could tell that he has such knowledge about Rome.
The tour itself was incredible, the beautiful churches and locations that were visited as well as the history that we were provided with in each locations.
If you are a fan of the books and of history then this is highly recommended. You will not be disappointed and you if you get Robert as your tour guide then you are in for the best tour as he is awesome
Thank you so much for showing us the history of Rome, this was by far the best tour we did.
A fantastic tour connected to the book. Our guide, Roberto, led us on the adventure that Robert Langdon followed while giving us great historical details about the artifacts and the buildings featured in the book. He separated fact from fiction and kept us on our toes using humour and wit.
This tour was one of our highlights of Rome. Our guide Roberto knew the book inside and out and made the day come alive. We learned so much about Rome, Bernini, and the novel. Well worth the time and money and definitely a must do!
Great! The guide really knew his stuff. You dont need to have read the book before.
Mike was a very knowledgeable guide. It was a fun tour but I learnt a lot too.

Robert and Mike, the guides, were amazing. Group was split in half with one of the two guides at each location and entire group shared the bus. Tour followed the story line of the book and did an excellent job of pointing out fact from fiction. Even if you're not familiar with the book or movie, it is easy to follow along and enjoy the story and the beautiful locations in Rome that you may have otherwise overlooked.
Our guide Robert was amazing. His passion for the subject matter was obvious. He was able to close his eyes and quote sections from the book in a lively dynamic way that made the tour fun for everyone. He was able to separate fact from fiction. This tour was probably one of the best I have ever taken and without doubt Robert was the best tour guide my wife and I have encountered.
Small group with excellent guide. Her knowledge astounded us, and she was very kind and helpful to those in the group who needed more time or rest. This tour involves a great deal of walking plus some pretty steep staircases but is worth every minute.It was totally fascinating and beyond first class.
This tour was the best part of our trip to Rome. Our guide, Angela, was knowledgeable not only about the film and the book but also the sites in Rome. She was welcoming, enthusiastic and funny. The minibus that took us between sites was very welcomed by our tired legs and the complimentary drink at a café on route a very thoughtful aspect of the tour. Angela really brought the book to life so much so that my husband is reading it again. We will definitely recommend this tour to our friends.
Our guide Michael was great. At every stop he related book plot, Roman history, and church history.
Brilliant, would highly recommend this tour, we learnt so much from our guide Roberto who has pure talent.
We really enjoyed our tour, seeing the places referred to in the book and movie. Our guide spoke English clearly and knew his stuff!
My wife and I had read the book and saw the Angels and Demons movie before coming to Rome and were so happy with this wonderful tour of churches, statues, fountains, bridges, castles, and other sites in the Eternal City. Our tour guide Michael provided a thorough overview of the book pointing all of the historical inaccuracies due to artistic license taken by Dan Brown and Hollywood in presenting the story. Michaels extensive knowledge of Italian art history and his sense of humor provided an enjoyable experience. A visit to the magnificent Castel Sant'Angelo with one of the most spectacular views of Rome and the Vatican was an excellent way of concluding the tour.
Our guide was amazing. He was perfectly fluent in both English and Italian and sorry but that was a MASSIVE help. Most locals in Rome can't speak English this clearly so it was so nice to have someone actually fluent in both. He knew the book like the back of his hand and all of the history of Rome to go with it. Very highly recommended.
Brilliant. Great Guide - Roberto - learnt so much, not just about the book, but the locations. highly recommended.
A very interesting tour that allowed us to visit some Rome churches that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. I feel that tour attendees should be somewhat familiar with the Dan Brown book or movie to be able to better follow the discussions. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave life to what we were viewing. A most enjoyable way to spend a morning in Rome.

An amazing tour, our tour guide Robert was very knowledgeable and he spoke English very well. It was a great way to see some unique sites in Rome.
This was a fabulous tour. Our guide was Roberto who managed the difficult task of blending a novel with the history of Rome in a fun and very entertaining way. We learned a great deal about Rome following the steps of Robert and Vittoria. We will never read the book in the same way again! Thanks Roberto - the best tour we've ever been on.
Amazingly informative experience - best tour we did in Rome - Worth every Euro!
The chaps that guided us were excellent
Very happy that we did this tour. Gave us the lay of the city of Rome and our guide was great. Related it back to the movie - both fact and fiction. Loved it.
We loved every minute of this tour. The aptly named Robert brought the sights to life with his depiction of the Angels and Demons book. His passion for the story was matched only by his extensive knowledge of all things Roman. A novel and exciting way to see this awesome city.
