Joined this tour at the last minute and couldnt have been happier. Our tour guide Ivana was absolutely fantastic....a real highlight of our trip to Rome. Fun, friendly and a great story teller who brought the darker side of Rome to life. Such a great way to see Rome's dark back streets at night and hear a side of history otherwise unknown. The wine break mid tour was also a big hit! We both agreed that we would have paid three times as much for such a tour...value for money is an understatement! Cannot recommend it enough if your looking for something fun and different to do while visiting the eternal city. We actually might do the tour again of we return it was that enjoyable.

It was a wonderful tour, even though we were a bit unlucky with the weather. I can highly recommend it: a beautiful route through hidden corners that you don't necessarily get to as a tourist. Many thanks to Ben!
