Jason was fantastic! Incredibly knowledgeable about history, beyond just facts and dates. He shared insights about how events and circumstances came together to contribute to major events in ancient Rome. Driving through these places with him you could really envision what it might have be like that be in those spaces in ancient times. This tour was a highlight of our trip for sure!

Cuma our tour guide and Miko our driver did am outstanding job. They were so knowledgeable and we saw places we would never have known about but for this tour. They were so enthusiastic about their jobs. Made the trip one of the most enjoyable things we have done in Rome. Took the night tour and it’s a great way to cool off after walking around the city in the summer.

This tour was so fun!!! After walking around in the heat in Italy for 12 days straight, a golf cart tour was just what we needed! And the catacombs were so fun! Our tour guide was so welcoming and friendly and we had a great time! Definitely do this tour!!!

Great intro to Rome and useful way of getting around whilst learning about all the historical sights

Great way to see Rome. Was also very good that it included the BigBus company as well.
