Arrived at our meeting point that had been messaged to us prior to our holiday,good instructions. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable at every point. We could have up graded and had a headset with more information as we walked through Rome but was happy to follow and enjoyed what he told us anyway. Beautiful place and so happy we chose this tour as going alone may have not aloud us to see everything in our 8hrs there.

Very knowledgeable guide and great experience. We were upgraded to a two hours tour that we thought we might leave half way but we stayed to the end because the guide was so interesting and we learnt so much

The architecture, statues and scenery are truly breathtaking, the tour was made even more memorable due to Alicia’s storytelling and knowledge of the site, would highly recommend.

Very well organised, staff were waiting at the port to guide us to the coach. Our guide was very informative and entertaining we had an amazing day.

This was a perfect tour. I saw many different things in a short period of time. I would definitely recommend. The tour guide Andre was awesome.
