Phillip was our guide and he was excellent! By booking this tour for one of the early morning slots we avoided lots of crowds and strong midday heat.

Loved this tour, but missed the opening of the Trevi Fountain by just days! I had my coins all ready to throw.
This was a fantastic tour!! The tour guide spoke amazing English and she was great fun! Can't believe the amount we learnt on this tour! Very good! It is a lot of walking do be prepared and please listen to info- cover knees and shoulders for the Basilica- they won't let you in we witnessed this!
Great trip with a very knowledgeable guide. All guides seem to be so passionate about the history of Rome and are able to transfer this to the group. We were given extensive and interesting information and shown places we otherwise would not have experienced! Well worth it!
Perfect pace, so much relevant information and I got to know so much. Rome means much more to me because of this trip.
A good introduction to some of the must sees on a visit to Rome. The Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon were real highlights.

Excellent tour, giving history around these squares and fountains. Would recoment this tour.
A nice introduction to Rome for those who haven't been before, the guide was interesting and informative.
Just enough guidance and time at each piazza and fountain to give us ideas about what to do upon our return. Our favorite spot is the Piazza Navono, where we spent several hours over two days enjoying the weather, meals, artists and other tourists. Another wonderful photo op.
Our guide Monica, did a great tour leading us to places we may not have chosen to go to as some of them were less well known. Learning about the oblesisks and buildings that house the Senate and Government etc and background stories were interesting. We appreciated it.
Good tour a little fast paced due to the distance and the effort needed to keep a party of people together, well worth the money if only to allow you to skip the queue for St Peter's in the Vatican city.
Very nice places, loved them.
The tourist guide had not enough knowledge of anything, everything she said was very vague. She was not Italian and couldn't give any advice on anything about the city, like other nice places to go or where to have dinner or shop.
you could tell she memorized a book and told everything she remembered about the places we visited.
Beware when you book this - one web page tells you it starts at 10.00am - and despite pointing this out to Viator the information is still wrong - and it doesn't, it starts at 8.30am. This was good but our group was 34 people and it was too big, the guide kept having to stop us and count heads to make sure no one was missing. We thought it was quite informative.
Bad start right off the bat. we were met by a lady whom was gathering the 6 people that was to be doing the tour and waiting for our tour guide, whom was giving another tour right before ours or leading into ours since all of her tourists also joined us (to make a total of some 30 people) well, she was 45 minutes late to the meeting point, which she then cut the tour off early, i think it was because some other people had some cooking class also booked with this company and they had to make sure they made it there on time. The guide was informative just didn't appreciate that she was extremely late.
This tour was short and sweet, but we found the meeting point a bit hard to find. This tour, like most others give a radio and earphone to listen to the guide which was very helpful!
A nice, short tour but something that is probably easy enough to do on your own.
Our guide was late. Some of the famous fountains are featured (ie Trevi), you could do this on your own with a decent guide book.
Nice introductory tour especially since we were staying at Hotel Raphael a stone's throw away from Piazza Navona.
The rome squares and fountain were excellent. We were disappointed with the guide. We did not think the presentation was as good as the other tours we had taken on this trip.
My husband and I never got to take this tour. The tour is only on Friday and Saturday, and Viator booked us on a Tuesday. Viator needs to check their information if they are going to allow bookings far in advance of the actual tour. We were credited back the purchase of the tour promptly.
The tour guide was not very friendly. She was very abrupt and even rude at times.
