TERRIFIC TOUR ,GUIDE WAS ENTERTAINING KNOWLEDGABLE AND PLEASANT TO TALK TO .A GREAT REP FOR VIATOR .WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SPEND THE WHOLE DAY AT THE VILLA BUT VILA dEste WAS AN EXCELLENT TOUR AS WELL
Wonderful trip. I was worried about finding the office but it turned out to be easy thanks to a local and handsome cop. The street is a little hole in the wall street close to the Colosseum. The day was warm, the guide was great and the gardens at Villa d'Este were wonderful. The steps are a challenge so be warned.
Easy to book - comfortable coach - beautiful place and great guide. The most memorable day of our trip and definitely worth a full day - anything else would be rushed.
We were a group of six in our party from the UK and Spain ... and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip led by Stefania - our tour guide for the day on 10 Sep 2016. With her archaeological background it was doubly interesting. She timed the day's trip so that we could experience the water organ at Vill d'Este.

This is a wonderful trip. Our guide was Guiseppe. He is a native of Tivoli and was very informed. He did a great job of making sure we had breaks as needed, allowing us a little time for shopping, and pointing out the important points of the 2 villas. The lunch at the restaurant was very good.
I have done the half day tour...much better to do the full day tour. Great guide. Excellent
,our guide Giuseppe, was excellent, very knowledgeable and very attentive to everyone in the group! He took us to all of the places mentioned and kept us going on time! He was upbeat and directed us to shops during our shopping time! Thanks-Kathy and Dennis
Excellent tour with a most competent and knowledgeable guide.
Our guide was great, friendly, knowledgable, spoke great English, and took us through two amazing sites, explaining all the interesting facts along the way. He made the best of it when it rained on us for about half an hour This was the best day of our vacation, relaxing and beautiful! You wouldn't want to miss villa deste, it's truly the prettiest place I've ever been
Giuseppe took us on a fun and informative tour of these two fascinating locations!
Alfredo was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. Hadrian's Villa was enormous and the Villa d'Este was absolutely beautiful. You must see it!!
Had a great time visiting Hadrian's Villa and Villa d'Este. Well worth the trip. Knowledgeable guide with ample time for pictures. Be prepared to walk and enjoy. The lunch break in Tivoli was perfect. Thank you.
My husband and I had a great time on this tour , our guide was really knowledgeable and friendly - loads of interesting facts and gorgeous ruins and gardens. Highly recommend!
This was an amazing tour filled with history and the beautiful gardens and fountains. Our tour guide was fantastic!
I chose this trip as we live near Hadrians wall in the North East of England and i wanted to see Emperor Hadrians villa. The first part of the trip gave us the opportunity to see how he lived, the second part was in Villa DEste. The gardens here are so beautiful and the views both inside and out are breath taking. If you like your history and want to do a trip outside the city of Rome, then this is for you.
Just delightful! Our guide was funny and informative. We loved the sights, the town where we had our lunch break and the fountains. A wonderful day!
Amazing! Worth it to get out of the city, guide was very knowledgeable. The gardens were phenomenal

We truly enjoyed this day trip from Rome. The guide was knowledgeable and the coach was very nice, clean and comfortable! It was hot touring Hadrian's Villa minimal shade and a long walking tour so wear appropriate clothing and bring water as none is available during the tour of the villas. It was well worth the money spent!
The tour was very informative and we were given freedom to stay with the tour the entire time, or meet back with the guide at a certain time and place. The times at each place felt short - I could have easily stayed longer! Made me much happier that I didn't do the half day tour, because it definitely wouldn't have been enough.
A fantastic tour. History at one villa and magnificent fountain gardens at the other. Take care at lunch, as we felt stung by the prices somewhat. Perhaps go for a cheaper option you find for yourself.
Loved the gardens as I had seen them on the TV and it is so worth seeing for real. Good timings for the day and the meeting point is near the Colosseum which is easy to get to I walked from my hotel.
Loved this tour. Both places were exceptional and the fountains at Villa d'Este were amazing. Great guide.
We were glad that we had booked a guided tour instead of attempting to organise our own itinerary to Tivoli. We learned so much from our enthusiastic and charming guide, Barbara, and transportation was quick and efficient. Both sites were breathtaking in different ways - spectacular ruins at the astonishing Hadrian's Villa and great beauty in the house and garden at Villa d'Este.
This was my favorite tour in all of or travels in Italy, Spain and France. Our guide was soooo knowledgable. The day was very hot and the tour of all the beautiful fountains was perfect. The grounds and paths that wandered through the fountains made walking easy. I took many pictures of the most unique fountains I have ever seen. We would do this tour again if we return to Itay.
