This tour went above my expectations. Our guide, Federico, was amazing in both the quality of the information he was sharing and also the energy he brought to the tour. This isn’t a tour that every person coming to Rome typically does like the coliseum, Vatican, etc. However, that is a shame as the sites visited in this tour are just as memorable and in some ways more interesting. If you are looking for something unique, and are interested in history, then I can’t recommend this tour enough. I will be looking into what other tours Federico’s company, TakeWalks, does in Italy!

The tour was brilliant, we learned so much about the catacombs, the crypts, and the aqueducts. It was great to learn all about the history of Rome and the tour gave us an insight we wouldn’t have experienced without our guide!

Amazing, it's a shame you have to accompanied in the catacombs but our guide was interesting and the crypts are a must if you are in Rome

Our guide was very good at explaining the history of tour destinations and our driver was very good at navigating the streets of Roma.

Very nice and educational tour with an absolutely excellent guide. Good mix of experiences and the attraction.
