Enjoyed my half-day sight-seeing tour on my 2nd day in Rome! I was on my own so able to go at my own speed, which was great. I got to see a lot of extra sights that might have been missed if I was in a group (though I would recommend this for a group or individual, especially if you have never been to Rome before). We saw the most well-known places, including the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and more. I was also able to request a drop-off near a restaurant, so I got lunch afterwards, as it was a half-day excursion. I would definitely do it again!

Andrea was incredibly nice, patient, and thorough. My Mom and I immensely enjoyed our trip. Highly recommend!

Loved our 2 hour tour with Piertro. He went all around the city and really gave us a thorough tour.

Great way to see Rome and stay out of the 38 degree heat!

Gerry is the best! So nice, knowledgeable and kind.
