We only had 3 days in Rome, so having only just arrived an hour before the tour it was a great introduction and guide to steer us towards what to spend our time doing, as Gabby not only showed us a lot of the top places to see, but also gave us some great tips on when to go back to avoid the queues and best use our time. Gabby was very informative, and showed a great passion for her job

This tour was great! Gabby, our guide was super engaging and informative! We had a small group, and it felt more like friends hanging out than it did you typical tour. Also, since it was the evening time, the areas were less busy than they are during the day and Rome is absolutely beautiful at night. I highly recommend this tour!

THE BEST walking tour of Rome!! I really enjoyed the evening walking tour, the host was so knowledgeable and fun. He shared interesting and fascinating stories about Rome :) Thank you so much, I highly recommend this experience.

I forgot my tour guide name. But she was amazing. Very detailed and friendly!

Our guide Sharon was great, we learned a lot and had a fun time.
