A wonderful historic tour of some of the key sites in and around the Trastevere area. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, bringing with him reference material to support the visual impact of the sights; English was perfect. Recommend this tour.
Laura, our tour guide, was wonderful. She had a unique perspective of the history and demographics of the area since her family had lived there for generations. It was a different type of tour in the fact that there weren't any well known monuments, churches, or attractions that were overwhelmed by tourists. Much more intimate. My friend and I really enjoyed the experience and would definitely book again.
There were only 3 people went on this tour including myself so it was like a private tour. We met the guide in front of the church in Trastevere. His name is Mauro. He is excellent, told us the history of that neighbourhood and the churches that are there including Santa Maria. It is an old beautiful church. The tour was good and interesting. The neighbourhood itself is very interesting. Lots of walking on cobble stones, make sure you have a guide as it is very easy to get lost. Lots to see in Trastevere. The guide said at night the neighourhood is even more beautiful and interesting. It is more peaceful than any other sites in Rome.
My wife and I booked a walking tour of Trastervere. It was vey nice and we learned about an area that we would not have otherwise visited. It was not as exciting as some of the other tours (Vatican/historical sites/catacombs). We still recommend it but do not be disappointed with not seeing historic sites.
