Let me tell you this. I enjoyed this tour so much, I took it twice, and on the second time, I invited my friends who I met the night before. The guide, Polina, is such a sweetheart. As per her educational background and personal interest, she is very well informative and cultured about the place. She did the ice braking at the beginning and became friends with us at the end of the tour. Drinking is always there and you would enjoy your time. Worth of money and time!

Chiara is absolutely amazing!! She is very excited to give everyone the best experience while in Rome and has great recommendations and knowledge of the city. She is very involved and interested in the group! I wish I was able to stay in Rome longer to do another!

It was very nice because both singers were very good. Of course the acoustics are bad on a roof terrace, but the two really made the best of it.

This was a great way to meet people when travelling solo. It was a super fun group and our host and guide were both fantastic.

It was a great experience we had so much fun and learned about its history. You also meet other travelers and connect :)
