Our guide, Simon, arrived in plenty of time. Access was easy to the sites despite Covid requirements. We had an excellent and informative tour. We were never rushed and felt able to ask any questions that we had. The tour was comprehensive in terms of seeing the main aspects. It was great value for money and we would highly recommend it. Now is an excellent time to visit Rome as there are not many visitors. It makes for an ideal opportunity to see the sites at leisure. Our guide was excellent and we would highly recommend her.

Me and my friend pre-booked this tour before arriving at Rome. We had a tour guide called George, he was amazing. Extremely knowledgeable and had a sense of humour. I would recommend this tour as you get to learn so much that you wouldn’t get to know if you just went on your own. The tour left on time and allowed you time to take in the views. If you like to know what you are looking at and want an enjoyable experience I would recommend this tour. Thank you George for being a great tour guide!

With great knowledge and passion for history and languages, Samuel is a fine tour guide. I felt so lucky to have him.

Excellent, knowledge curator. Giovanni was enthusiastic and made the tour interesting. Well done!

Evis was great! Wish it could have been longer but we packed a lot into 3 hours.
