We did several tours with this company. All were very well out together and informative. Any tour costs more than doing the events alone. We felt the price was worth the services we received. All guides were informative and very friendly.

Traveling with friends who had never been to Italy, we thought it best to use tours to maximize our brief 3 days in Rome. We took 2 tours, and they were fabulous. Both tours handed out the individual audio earbuds so that we could hear our guide clearly. The first was an afternoon tour of the Coliseum, Palantine Hill, and... More

We took the Colosseum & Underground tour in Rome and it was fantastic. We got to tour the main Colosseum but also two areas that are not accessible to the general public - the underground where the animals & slaves were kept, and the very top of the Colosseum where there are spectacular views. This tour also includes a tour... More

Enjoyed this walking tour very much. We booked this before we left home and we were so glad we took the tour that visited the Sistine chapel very early. It is worth getting up -- easy to find a taxi to get to the meeting point on time and when we saw what the crowd was like in the Chapel... More

We booked both Colosseum, etc VIP tour and Pristine Sistine before we left home. Both our guides (Barbara & Jeb) were very well prepared and knowledgeable. Don't let the early start for Pristine put you off - it's well worth it. The crowds in the Sistine and Vatican when we finished were crazy. Both tours meant a lot of walking... More

We did two tours with Walks of Italy when we were in Rome. The first was the "Welcome to Rome: Twilight Stroll with Gelato". The second was "VIP Access: Colosseum Underground and Ancient Rome". The Welcome to Rome was a great way to get the feel of Rome and a bit of the lay of the land the day that... More

We participated in three tours during our 10 day stay in Rome. Colosseum, Forum & Palatine - Barbara was an excellent guide and a fountain of knowledge. Galleria Borghese - Guido could not have been better, an absolute joy to have as a guide. Pristine Sistene - Tiberius was informative and a wonderful source of information. We made a few... More

Took the twilight tour on arrival and Pristine Sistine a couple of days later. Our guides Cecilia and Rosa were very informative and passionate about their subjects and brought everything to life. Cecilia took us around parts of Rome that we would never had seen if it wasn't for her and the tour ended with amazing ice-cream! Rosa took us... More

Luigi was an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable, patient, personable, and spoke great English. He was happy to answer all of our questions. We could not have asked for a better tour guide!

This tour was first rate. The guide, Elisa, was truly an expert on the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's. It was expensive but really worth it.
