My fiance and I did the "A.M. VIP Access: Colosseum Underground & Ancient Rome" tour. Our guide David was absolutely wonderful! He provided us with so much history, yet kept the tour fun and easy-going. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome!

We did three Walks of Italy tours during our trip to Rome and Pompeii in April 2014. All three tour guides (Ilaria - Pompeii/Vesuvius; Violet - Rome City Walk; Guido - Vatican) were excellent. I would HIGHLY recommend Walks of Italy. First class all the way. Lisa Miles & Gordon Woodruff

If you are looking for a one day tour that highlights the best of Rome's history then this is the tour for you. Even though we were planning to be in Rome for 3 days we decided on this tour because while we wanted to see the rich history we are definitely not history buffs and wanted time to explore... More

My daughter and I took the VIP Colosseum Underground tour at 8:30 a.m. on a Sunday. Unfortunately the Rome Marathon was also at 8:30 a.m. on the same Sunday and the start of the race was at the Colosseum. Walks of Italy reassured us in an email a few days earlier that they would not cancel our tour. The day... More

PM. VIP Access: Colosseum Underground & Ancient Rome: Our guide Cecilia was excellent! The tour was very well organized. I loved having such a small group--it made for a very intimate experience. The VIP access in the Colosseum was incredible. It wa amazing being on stage with only a handful of people, and exploring the upper and lower levels with... More

We traveled to Rome for Spring Break with our boys (ages 9 and 12). Having visited before, we had used Walks of Italy and another tour company on our previous visit. On this visit we opted for all tours to be through Walks of Italy because of small sized groups, excellent customer service and extremely knowledgeable guides. We were not... More

My 12-year-old daughter and I spent last week in Rome. We did three tours with Walks of Italy: "VIP Access: Colosseum Underground & Ancient Rome"; "Pasta-Making Class: Cook, Dine & Drink Wine with a Local Chef"; and "Pristine Sistine: The Chapel At Its Best." We each highly recommend all three, and the Walks of Italy company generally. Colosseum: the access... More

So glad we took the time out to experience chef David and his rooftop kitchen. We had a lovely, casual night of cooking and learning, eating and drinking! Chef David made us feel like family with his cool, happy attitude. He greeted us with some yummy appetizers and Prosecco...had a few minutes to get to know the other guests and... More

My husband, 12-year old son and I enjoyed a lovely morning in Ancient Rome with a small group of 5 and our guide Cecilia. She was extremely knowledgeable, organized and charming. Our son loved her and we did too. The others on the walking tour were a couple in their late 20s/early 30s and they seemed to enjoy it also.... More

We highly recommend Walks of Italy Tours. We were very pleased with the two morning tours we took with this company (the Premium Colosseum Tour and the Pristine Sistine Chapel Tour). It is obvious that Walks of Italy selects their guides with care and, that the guides care very much about the areas/sights they are presenting to their groups. Groups... More
