At Epic Rome tours, we like to offer something a little different from most other tour companies in Rome. We give tours of the Vatican, Ancient Rome and Rome City centre but we like to put our clients central to our tours. It is about your experience of seeing these beautiful and historic sites. Our tours are intimate, never larger than 6-10 people and your guide caters exactly what you want to do. Our guides are trained to bring the place alive for you and bring you on a journey that through 2,000 years of history of a city that is the most important in history. This is not a history lesson, this is a journey into the past that is meant to be fun and unforgettable. Join us on a tour in Rome and see this city in a unique and fun way.

And they are not responding to e-mail or at telephone. So they have cheated me and my young son for 55 Euros.

Jimmy brings a special sauce to Roman history and understands that most of us want to hear the human stories not the dry repetitions of dates and battles. This is a relaxed, fun, informative and entertaining tour.

We booked Epic Rome Tours about 24 hours before our tour and it was terrific. It was relatively inexpensive and Jimmy, our tour guide, did an amazing job. He was knowledgeable, informative and easy-going. It was nice to have a relaxing tour that felt like five minutes but was really two hours and saw some major sites (Pantheon, Piazza Nuova,... More

We were very excited to visit Rome, and Epic Rome Tours helped to make our trip even more special. We booked three tours with them, and are so happy that we did. We started out with the Bella Roma Tour on our first evening, we took the Ancient Roman Tour the next morning, and the tour of the Vatican in... More

We chose Jimmy for our tour after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Jimmy was knowledgeable but was able to present the information in a lively and enjoyable manner. On the day of our tour, Jimmy was unwell but still turned up on time and provided an excellent tour although we were the only people on... More

We had a great time. Jimmy was professional and informative and answered our questions well. We were really lucky to be a group of only 2 but we both feel like the tour would have been great whether 2 or 20. My friend and I wanted a good way to be introduced to the city of Rome and we couldn't... More

We heard about Jimmy from my friend at the office. His website paints an accurate picture of his company; knowledgeable and enthusiastic but not pompous. He brought his own reproductions of the Sistine Chapel on our Vatican tour which he produced with a flourish from his inside pocket so we could find shade in the courtyard while he outlined the...

I heard about Jimmy through a friend who took his tour last year. I did the tour at the beginning of September. His enthusiasm, humor and knowledge about all aspects of his tour, made it really interesting and fun. I had read books on the Colosseum before but was amazed by all the interesting facts that i had not read... More

Did this tour with Jimmy in early September and it was one of the highlights of my Holiday. The queues were massive that day but Jimmy got us past all of these. Once inside the Vatican I was blown away with Jimmy's knowledge. The tour was informative and really funny at times. He really engaged the group and was approachable... More
