Great tour with a very well informed guide, so many stories and photos to help bring the history to life. Strongly recommend this company - a great group size so we all could ask questions.

Awesome tour! We had a lot of fun; the amount of historic information you get is perfectly thought out - not too little and not too much. The route is great and all the sights that were shown to us are very interesting. Lucilla was a great tour guide. You will get recommendations/tips for restaurants or sights depending on your prefernces. You will also get some ear pieces to make sure you can always stand under the guide. She also took very good care of us in terms of taking pictures and leading us to water fountains. Definitely recommend!
