It was supposed to be a group tour but because other people didn’t make it on time me and my fiancé ended up being the only ones around, so we basically got a private tour. Fiona, our guide, was amazing! She actually knew so much about everything we saw and she even took us around Trevi Fountain and other nearby places while we waited for the booked time for the catacombs. The transport was also really comfortable. The overall experience was top notch!

This tour was very different from the other tours we went on during our time in Rome. Barbara was our tour guide and she was excellent! very knowledgeable and friendly. The crypts and catacombs were so interesting and definitely worth seeing whilst in Rome.

The guide Rhian made the extremely informative and interesting. The tour packed a lot of information but felt relaxed. Probably best City Tour we've done and would highly recommend this tour and guide.

Easy to use and a great way of getting around the city. We booked for 3 days and was just right to get everything in that we had planned.

God option for make a tour of main attractions in Rome. However, prepare yourself for walking.
