I recommend this trip to everyone who wants to know the story behind the important places in Rome. Bruno is a very nice person who explained all the history in a simple way and with good English. I really appreciate that he continued with the tour although it was just me on that day. I highly recommend this tour if you are in Rome for a short trip. I had lot of fun learning the stories behind the fountains and main squares. P.S: you will also get to see the most beautiful fountain (chocolate fountain) that’s not included in other tours :)

Great personal experience!

We had the chance to get a tour through the City of Rome for only us as a couple. We really got sucked into the culture of Rome how it is and how it used to be. The knowledge of the guide, together with the humoristic momenteel we had, made it an experience to never forget. Absolutely worth it! Thumbs up and a big shoutout to our guide Stefano!!!

Enjoyed the tour despite the weather

The tour was entirely outdoors on a cold and very rainy (pouring) December morning. Nevertheless, we - and most of the group - stuck with it (almost) until the end (we left one stop early because we had an afternoon tour scheduled for the Vatican.). The guide, Stefano, was very informative and also very funny and entertaining. He kept us going despite the bad weather. He provided lots of very interesting information and we learned a lot from him.
