We were a little hesitant to book this tour as we were booking it for the two other couples that would be traveling with us. It was a costly tour and we worried we would be wasting their money. We were pleasantly surprised and can honestly say it was worth the cost.Entering the Sistine Chapel before the crowds was amazing.... More

A visit to the Sistine Chapel is one for the bucket list. And, visiting with Walks of Italy does indeed add value. The tour starts very early, but the benefits are well worth it. The majestic Sistine Chapel should be seen in as much quiet as possible in order to have the complete experience. Though there were other tours in... More

Very good tour of Ancient Rome, pantheon, Trevi fountain and Spanish steps. Eliza was friendly and upbeat and very knowledgeable. It took a few minutes to understand her accent but once you fall into the groove it works. She kept a good pace and showed her love if the city.

My family of 4 took part in this tour a few weeks ago. Andrea was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide and we really enjoyed learning all about the tiny details of what we would normally have walked straight past. There were only 10 of us on the tour and it was the perfect size to stroll around the city sightseeing.... More

We took part in two tours with Walks of Italy, the Pristine Sistine and Colosseum by Night, and both were exceptional. We are not traditionally a family that enjoys taking part in tours, preferring to do research before we visit and trust ourselves to get around, but the two tours we did in Rome were chosen due to their uniqueness....

My family of 4 visited Rome for the first 3 days of a 12 day trip in July. We arrived jet-lagged and a little shell-shocked early in the day. I was really looking forward to our Twilight Intro to Rome Tour that evening, and the tour did not disappoint. Joseph was our guide, and there was just one other family... More
