We did the a Rome Food Tour on 5/3 with Jeanette. She was fantastic, very knowledgeable, friendly, so helpful and patient with our many questions. We loved visiting the market, bakery, cheese store and meat market. Learning about olive oil and balsamic vinegar, Italy style, was perfect. And...to learn pizza making from an expert was wonderful. Nothing better than to... More

We took the Eternity in a Day tour and the Pompeii/Amalfi Coast Day trip and both were fantastic! The Eternity in a Day tour is a great way to cover the highlights in Rome and skip the lines. We toured the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain (which unfortunately was undergoing restoration, so not completely visible and... More

We did the Pristine Sistine tour with Walks of Italy and it was well worth the early start. There were other early-bird tours running at the time too, but our knowledgeable and friendly guide manoeuvred us (in a small group of 12) to the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms before the Vatican was opened to the public, and we...

Excellent tour and Jon as tour guide! The only way to see the Sistine Chapel and Vatican. Jon was very accommodating because after the Chapel, my kids had about reached their attention limit (as I had expected), so he worked out where to meet the group back before St. Peters, and I took the kids for an extended break in...

My wife and I had a great tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel with Walks of Italy. Our guide was well-informed and gave a very good tour. At first we thought he was too soft spoken, but that was due to the introductory part of the tour on the loud street right outside. Once we were able to get... More

My friends and I booked the A.M. Colosseum tour with Rosa, and it was good. Her knowledge about the history or Rome was only matched by her enthusiasm for it. I wish, though, that we had more of an opportunity to walk around the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill on our own and take pictures or even have time for... More

We just returned from a wonderful three-week vacation in Italy. One of the highlights of our trip was most certainly our Tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill with Walks of Italy. Several things made this tour exceptional. 1. The tour guide. Our tour guide was Alisa who, it turned out, was an archeologist working on the excavation below... More

I booked the food tour- Rome Food Tour: Pizza-Making, Markets & Tastings for me, my husband, and 2 friends. I really enjoyed learning about the city, food, and culture on this tour. Our guide was wonderful and patient. She went through and explained a lot about the food and really seemed to know what she was talking about. She also... More

We took the food market and pizza making tour of Campo di Fiori with Marta and it was the kids' (ages 11 and 13) favorite thing in our three week vacation. All of the food was amazing, I could weep when I think I will never again taste as many good cured meats as I did at the salumeria. And... More

This trip was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We had been down in Amalfi, and were finishing up with a few days in Rome. I looked into day trips to Tuscany and liked the places Walks of Italy visited. We had a small group, 6 of us, and our guide Marta and a driver. Marta was a great... More
