Great value and one of the best possible tours. These were two separate tours that required that we travel by metro to meet the second tour for the wine tasting. This was not difficult but if youre unfamiliar with Romes Metro system it coulld cause concern. The knowledge of the guides for each tour was amazing. Claudia was our Colosseum and Forum guide. She is an archeologist and gave us an amazing, detailed understanding of all the sites,. Antonetta was our Wine tour guide. She was extremely knowlegable and the wine and total experience at the Palavincini Estate and Winery was exceptional. Well worth the money!
The tour was informative and thorough. The winery tour was great and the tasting... well. I didn't plan on bringing back 4 bottles of wine and a bottle of olive oil, but... here we are.
Note: this review is only pertinent to the Ancient Rome walking tour portion of the day, as we did not end up attending the Frascati Wine Tasting section. That was our personal choice and not due to anything with City Wonders etc.
Our tour guide was Marco and he was very informational and helpful! He had lots of good information to share and we really enjoyed him.
Be aware that the pace of this tour is fairly slow and it's a good bit of sitting/standing around as opposed to walking. I personally would have preferred LESS sitting and more walking but I may be in the minority there. It was a hot day so that may have played a part. I feel like I could have finished the Colosseum and the Forum area in about 1/2 the time it took the group, BUT then I wouldn't have had Marco, so overall it was still worth it. I just wanted to mention the pace for others that may read reviews.

Unbelievable trip and excellent value! We met the tour group outside the Colosseum in the morning and our guide was wonderful. She knew so much about the history and kept everyone interested even when some of the group wandered off, she managed to bring everyone back together! The headsets are a great way to still hear the whole commentary. We then had a good break for lunch and met up with another group for the wine tasting experience. The drive up to the hills was relaxing although a bit hot! as we learnt about wine before a little tour of the beautiful vineyard and cellars. We then headed to the tasting room for a fantastic immersive tasting experience of 4 delicious wines with tomato bread. An excellent tour and we'd thoroughly recommend it!
Such an interesting tour at the collosseum. Busy, but not like the Vatican. Our guide was great.
Then there was time to go for lunch and then head off to the wine tour. Nice close bus ride from Rome. Nice wines. Anna was our tour guide and gave us so many tips!
Phenomenal!! I'm so happy we picked this package, a great way to get a lot of cool things all in one day.
was easy to find the tour where it started . fantastic , knowledgeable tour guide who made the tour even more interesting , visited Rome in june and i must say it got rather hot especially in the ruins . be prepared with lots of water , sunblock and hats
This tour was perfect our tour guide at he colosseum was energetic and made the trip fun . The wine tasting trip is a must you get to visit a vineyard and have a wine tasting in a nice wine cellar. The wine was amazing I bought 2 bottles plus the olive oil. This was one of my favorite trips
My husband and I loved this tour! It's definitely the way to see each of these sites and our guide was so incredible, I just wish I could remember how to spell his name. He was enthusiastic, insightful, funny, and answered all of our questions with detail. You could tell he loved his job and every person in our group was enjoying themselves immensely. The Colosseum was fascinating and the tour up Palatine Hill was gorgeous. It's almost surreal to be walking along streets and through doorways that old and with that much history around you. The House of the Vestal Virgins was pretty neat and standing beside where Julias Caesar took his last breath was surreal. The wine tour afterwards was nice but not the highlight. We'd done a full day Chianti wine region tour a couple days before and, in comparison, that one was by far superior, BUT...you did get a lot of wine and and the wine was delicious. The bathroom was out of order at the last winery we stopped at but thankfully the bus driver stopped at a gas station on the way home as Rome was an hour away. Book this tour for sure, you'll love it.
I purchased this tour for my father as a Father's Day gift and activity for both of us on our recent trip to Italy. It was a really special memory that combined some of our favorite things - travel and wine. Our guide for the Colosseum and Ancient Rome, Alessandro, was phenomenal. His passion and interest for the architecture and history of the Colosseum and Forum was unmatched and he made sure that we did not move on without having the opportunity to have our questions answered! He also did his best to make sure we were able to stop and fill water bottles and find places out of the sun to talk. It is absolutely worth it to skip the line with a group! It was already quite long at 10 a.m. when the tour started! After the Ancient Rome tour, we decided to take a taxi to the meeting place for the wine tour, we were able to have a quick lunch and met up with the tour group in a small park. Andy was our guide for the wine tasting and was extremely knowledgable about the region and pointed out some aqueducts and other vineyards on our way to Principe Pallavicini. The wine tour was in two parts, a stop at the vineyard to see the vines and some of the barrels, followed by the tasting which was held in the vineyard offices. The tasting was outstanding and we loved all four of the varietals provided by our sommelier! Time was given at the end to socialize, finish our wine, and purchase some bottles to take home. Andy also provided us with the website and address of a U.S. distributor who carries the wine in the event we decide to purchase more later on! This tour was a very special memory for my dad and I and I would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Rome! Thank you!
