Absolutely a most wonderful day and one of our highlights when visiting Rome. Our private guide, Giorgi (nick name), was terrific. I highly recommend her. She met us punctually with a driver at our hotel and started passing along information as soon as our drive to Tivoli got under way. She patiently answered all our many questions and provided the history/facts at each site visited which included Villa D’este, the gorgeous fountains of Tivoli Gardens, and the ruins of Hadrian’s Villa. Thank you also for the efficient handling of our booking and for keeping in close communication with us regarding our booking confirmation as the date approached.
This is a must do adventure. First, our guide Inger was exceptional. I had studied much prior and Inger provided so many additional insights. She kept the group informed on what we would be experiencing and maintained a good pace for everyone. Her structure of the tour also allowed you to explore on your own and arranged clear meeting points.
We had a small group tour of 5 people, which was FABULOUS! Our tour guide, Alfredo, was so knowledgeable and patient. This is a gorgeous area to tour and a welcomed break from the busyness of Rome. We would highly recommend booking with this company, as they keep their groups small. Some other companies will book 50 people on this same tour.
Fabio was excellent guide. They pick you from your hotel with minivans and they assembly the group at piazza della repubblica. The only negative is that the excursion ends there and you have to go on your own back to your hotel. My hotel was just 500m away. The weather was perfect otherwise i guess it becomes muddy at Hadrian's villa.
The tour was exactly as advertised. Our driver, Luigi, arrived on time and delivered us to our excellent local guide, Donato, who was knowledgeable and personable. The pace of our tours of Villa Adriano and Villa D’Este was relaxed and enjoyable and Luigi then delivered us back to our hotel exactly five hours later.
