I took my 12 year old on this tour and we both loved it. Time traveling in the Basilica of San Clemente was incredibly interesting. Highly recommend this tour. You go on a bus to the catacombs then come back to Rome where a bus takes you between the other two destinations. The guides were super knowledgeable and we got more than expected.
Tour Guide Sabrina was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter. The trip to and from the Catacombs by coach and the commentary along the way were a huge bonus.
Laura was awesome! Very knowledgeable, friendly, fun and passionate about the sites that we saw. She provided information above and beyond the scope of the trip. Information you would never be able to get on your own. I hope to be with her again!
Put this tour at the top of your list! Our guide, Sabrina, was so knowledgeable that she made the experience even more fascinating! The crypts and catacombs were breathtaking and I will be thinking about them for a long time! I didn't realize the tour also included a tour through the Basilica di Saint Clemente, which was like walking back through time as we investigated one church built on top of another, on top of another. This would have never been as interesting without Sabrina's historical knowledge and storytelling! LOVED this tour and highly recommend you go!
All around awesome experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, but the highlight of the tour was getting to roam inside ancient catacombs. It was the kind of thing that was both awe-inspiring and super creepy--it made you want to learn more about the history while simultaneously making you want to jump out and scare everyone that walked by.... or maybe that was just our group. Be advised there are lots of steps, so not wheelchair accessible. If you can do this tour, do it! The preservation of the monks is incredible!
Mike/Mark....i can't remember his name, was very entertaining and very knowledgeable. in fact he knew his subject matter in depth and I really appreciated his observations. He was also entertaining and fun. The trip was great, the stories amazing, and the bones awesome!
Most enjoyable tour we have had with a friendly, knowledgeable guide.
Our guide Katrina and Luka was the highlight of all of the tours I took. She was originally form California so her English was perfect also speaks Italian and some German just as easily. She has really studied her history and gave us some much information along with questions about what we thought things were that it became a history discussion instead of just a guided tour. Myths, legends, the actual facts, who the gods were and then the name changes, how things became what we know today - wow. She was the best guide I've ever had in all of my travels! The catacombs were fascinating and we were luck enough to witness several Masses being held in there - a rare sight since they usually happen when closed to the public. I was with Katrina's side so really didn't interact with Luka except when he lectured on the bus but he was also great.If you're going, I'd recommend asking for her. We also went to a small church St Clement - and the church under it from the 12th century and the one under that from 400AD - amazing, and then the Osuary with the bone art - some people didn't really like it, but looking at it from the art side, what they did with the bones was amazing and beautiful and then to hear the story behind it and the reverence that these monks have for it, they go in and pray each day with their ancestors. Well worth it.
The sites were certainly amazing, but most importantly of all we had an amazing tour guide that explained everything in great detail to us. It was much appreciated!
Our guide was amazing, she was funny and informative. A great tour
Had an excellent tour with Claudia. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour took about 4 hours in total.
Our guide Mike was knew his stuff and was very entertaining. A great tour of a relatively unknown site
Great tour, I guess not for everyone but was extremely interesting, and the tour well done and the guides fantastic.
The tour was amazing!!! our tour guide Rebecca, made everything easy to understand and she is able to provide a lot of information about rome.
Very interesting tours with knowledgeable guides. There is a lot of information about Rome and the churches.
Great tour, our guide was very knowledgeable on the history and he had a great sense of humour. The tour finished by the colosuem , so we opted to stay around there rather than going back on the bus to Piazza Barbierini. Highly recommend this tour!
Being on a tour and with a guide who knew a lot about the places we visited is precious and valuable.
Best tour I did in Rome. These are places were incredible and I probably wouldn't have visited them myself. The tour guide, Claudia, was fantastic!
Skip the super tourist-trap tours and get a skip-the-line pass but definitely consider paying for this full tour experience.
Because of our tour size, two tours were combined and we ended up with two tour guided that were very interesting and engaging and made the whole experience fun. Rome is a city with so much character and history and these tour guides gave us a lot of information we will remember. The Catacombs were fascinating. Bu showing us how the building were built one on top of each other was impressive. They pointed out details which would have been missed if we were doing a self guided tour.
Rome is built like a lasagna with many layer of history. One needs these type of guides to help us learn about this great
Our tour guide was a young lady from Ireland and was a joy and had lots of interesting history and information to share with us.This is probably like nothing you've ever seen before. The crypts are decorated in human bones so if you think you can't handle it, you could probably wait outside for the group or just visit the gift shop. The Catacombs are amazing! The pick up and drop off point is the same, easy to get too, I found out some of the tours aren't like that. I would recommend this tour.
Tour guide was great and very knowledgeable . Was a wonderful , informative tour
