My father and I took a wonderful tour over this past winter with Daniela from Icon Tours. Daniela was our guide for the Ancient Roman Archaeological sites and I was impressed with both her knowledge of antiquity as well as her love of contemporary Rome and the relationship between the two. As an Middle School Ancient History teacher, I was... More

Seeing Rome and the Vatican with a guide, and as excellent as this one, is a new experience. Alone is great and beautiful but seeing it through the eyes of some one who tells you the stories behind it is amazing!!!! One can feel the atmosphere! We were a group of 16, parents and 10 adolescets, and even they were... More

Whatever your trip to Rome may include, do not leave the city without a tour from Icon! This is probably the best, most comprehensive, informative, educational tour company that I have ever hired. My wife and I took her father to Europe for his 80th birthday, four of his brothers and sisters from Ireland (ages 65-78) joined us in Rome... More

We were referred to Icon Tours by a friend and thankfully we took their advice. Douglas was extremely helpful in the planning of our family trip to Italy. We booked a tour for the Vatican and were set up with Christiana. She met our group, which thankfully was small on time and where she said she would and guided us... More

Four friends took on Rome for only two days. We wanted a personal experience and Icon tours had been recommended from friends that were there three years ago. The recommendation totally panned out., Our guide was Daniela and she was so wonderful, knowledgeable and what a grand sense of humor. We toured the Vatican Museum, St. Peters and the Colosseum...

Having limited time to explore Rome, we opted to have a private guide take us on a tour of Ancient Rome. We met our guide, Justin a little bit before 9:30 exactly where our instructions said that our guide would be waiting for us. He proceeded to give us a very detailed look at Ancient Rome. He had many stories... More

A friend and I visited Rome in April 2013 and wanted a tour of the Vatican Museum, St. Peters and the Colosseum. The thought of being one of a string of "followers" behind a guide with a headset didn't appeal to us. Instead, we received a recommendation from a friend who had been to Rome many times. He suggested we... More

This was our first trip to Rome and we only had 5 days in the city. Our friends recommended we use Icon Tours to ensure we see as much as we can in this beautiful and historic city in the short time we had. Well from the very moment that I started communicating with Icon I knew I was going... More

Taking a tour was unusual for me as I am an independent-minded (and impecunious!) traveler who likes to see the sights on my own. But I decided that some interpretation could really make a difference in experiencing the ruins of ancient Rome -- and I was right! I got so much out of my tour with Daniela. She is extremely...
