This was my 5th and favourite tour in Italy. Our guide Marisa was absolutely wonderful. We had the option of going with an English speaking guide or staying with Marisa (Italian speaking) we chose to stay with Marisa because she was just adorable from the moment we met her, my partner is Italian and translated the tour for us. She took us to so many beautiful sights in Rome that we never would’ve found without her. She made the tour something very special. We had our 1 year old baby with us and Marisa took her in as her own, it was beautiful to watch. We thoroughly enjoyed all the beautiful sights we were taken to, my favourite being a view point where we could see most of the city, Villa Borghese gardens and a keyhole which perfectly fit the Dome of St. Peters Basilica. We also tried beautiful Roman style Pizza, Supplì and coffee. I loved the tour so much I’d do it again. My biggest thanks to Marisa for such a wonderful experience.

Vladimir was a wonderful guide. Passionate, humorous and very respectful even when faced with some tough questions from others in our group which were so specific not even the greatest historian could answer. I loved his personal touch and love for the city and determination to get others to fall in love with it just as much. He was also able to engage and keep my 13 and 16 year old daughters interested which is a tough job ;).

The tour was excellent, despite the heat on the day, mainly due to the knowledge of our guide, Alexandre Palma. He is archaeological, so he brought curiosities and a more in-depth look at the history of the places. It was really worth taking this tour!

The Vespa tour was fantastic! The riders were excellent and very knowledgeable. We had an amazing time exploring the city. Highly recommend!

The tour guy was very interesting and funny! Great experience
