It was a great tour. The guide speaks good english and showed good knowledge about the history of Villa d´Este and Hadrian´s Villa, two places totally diferent e amazing. They didn´t pick you at the hotel. When you book, they sent you the agency´s adress and you have to go there. But I recommend.
Loved this day trip to Tivoli. The day was rainy but we had umbrellas. You are outside most of the day, so wear comfortable walking shoes and wear a coat if it's chilly or rainy. I wouldn't recommend this tour for small kids. Lots of stairs, lots of walking, but well worth it! The ruins at Hadrian's Villa were very interesting. Our archeologist guide, Elizabetha, did a fantastic job describing and explaining things. The highlight, however, was the visit to Villa d'Este. Oh my goodness. The water falls and landscaping and fountains were spectacular! For lunch we ate at a restaurant called Trattoria de Falcon. Excellent food!
A wonderful day - the guide Michaela was extremely interesting and knowledgable. A thoroughly enjoyable day where we learnt a lot and saw do much beauty.
We had a fantastic time on this tour. The very small group size (6) meant we were able to easily interact with each other and the guide and ask questions when needed. Larissa was an excellent guide and made the tour very interesting. She had a thorough knowledge of the area and history and a clear love and passion for her job. The two estates were amazing, the gardens were beautiful and the view to Rome from the top of Villa D'Este was breathtaking. The town of Tivoli was lovely and peaceful and the fresh, hand made pasta we enjoyed at a local Tivoli cafe for lunch was the best pasta we have eaten. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome!
Great guide, great places, great vistas. Just do it.
Very good guide, informative and moved us along at a good pace.
This was a great tour--very interesting and informative. I would give it a 10 out of 10. The tour guide, however, exceeded all expectations! She was knowledgable, thoughtful, and spoke English very well. I am of limited mobility and could not walk the whole of Hadrian'sVilla. What I did see was very good. At the Villa d'Este, our guide arranged for a golf cart for my husband and myself. This was so thoughtful and we got to see the all of the grounds and fountains. She made this trip truly memorable. I would highly recommend this tour and Viator.
This was a great tour with guide Larissa. We spent a lovely day in Tivoli, with a lunch at an outside restaurant with excellent food. So much to see, but we did it all, and it was all quite amazing.
We had a wonderful tour of Tivoli Gardens and Hadrian's Villa. The tour guide, Alfonso, was extremely knowledgeable about the history and archaeology of Hadrian's Villa and the Tivoli Gardens was beautiful.
This was our first experience with Viator and we will definitely book another. Our guide and the reception team at headquarters spoke very good English and they were all professional and charming. The bus was clean and comfortable, and the driver was excellent (very unlike the Rome city bus drivers who are all practicing for the Indy 500!) The site tours were informative, and of course, the sites themselves are incredible!
This was a wonderful tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour of Villa d'Este required lots of walking up and down hills that would limit some visitors by they still had a beautiful view. I think this tour is a must if visiting Rome and time allows.
Tivoli was amazing. I have never seen so many fountains. We would love to go back and spend time in a different season when the gardens are blooming. Hadrian's Villa was very interesting but we only saw about half as it is outside Rome and took about an hour to get to. It is very large and a wonderful look at how Hadrian lived.
This tour was great! The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The sites, Hadrian's villa and the Villa d'Este were terrific. But be aware that this is a physically taxing tour.
