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...

We met our tour guide, Anna, and were part of a group of 12 people, touring the Vatican Museum and ending just outside of St. Peter's. Anna was terrific! Had a thorough knowledge of much of the art in the Vatican Museum and gave interesting tidbits and highlighted some of the specifics of the Rafael Rooms and prepared us completely... More

Used Icon for two different tours during our recent stay in Rome. Booked the Vatican museum group tour and we found it to be very informative with an excellent tour guide. Our 2nd booking with Icon was a private tour of ancient Rome. Daniela wax our tour guide and she was excellent. It was my wife's birthday and it turned... More

I have booked a Rome Forum tour with Icon after reading the comments on the site and visiting their web site. I was under the impression that the tour will be of the highest quality and would be a wonderful way to learn more about the Roman Forum and its important sites. The tour we were given suffered from the... More
