While in Italy we did several tours with City Wonders (formerly Dark Rome Tours) including the Semi-private Colosseum Tour, Crypts & Catacombs of Rome, Ancient Ostia Walking Tour, Ghosts, legends & mysteries of Rome and Secret venice by night. We enjoyed them all and found our guides to be knowledgeable, interesting and professional. The directions to all the meeting places... More

This is an excellent tour offered by City Wonders. We arrived bright and early at the Vatican and were let in before the public to have breakfast in the Pinecone courtyard. After we toured the Vatican Museums (Sistine Chapel, Raphael's rooms etc.). Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny. We also toured Saint Peters after the Sistine Chapel. Be sure... More

What a fantastic experience. Our tour guide, Gigi was so passionate and filled with knowledge which made the tour an amazing experience. Gigi's passion ensured a memorable explanation of the Last Judgement. This express tour which allows you into the Sistine Chapel before the crowds arrives, is a real treat. We have previously visited St Peters without a tour and... More

We did a tour of Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius via City Wonders and the wealth of information provided by the tour guides was incredible. They kept us entertained and engaged throughout the entire trip, which was quite useful because the journey to Pompeii from Rome takes about 3 hours one way.

Okay, I spelled the mountain wrong. But what a great trip! We left Rome for a great trip with Annanette as our guide(ok-I spelled her name wrong too), but she did a wonderful job on the bus providing the visitor information on the way down and back. The City Wonder guide at Pompei also did a wonderful job explaining Pompei... More

Fantastic tour with a fantastic guide. Would highly recommend this tour group! You are given a headset which the guide speaks into a mic so you can hear them at whatever distance. A great idea as it gets pretty busy

This is an absolutely fantastic tour of the Borghese Gallery and Gardens. Our guide Rebecca was very passionate about the works of art in the gallery. Her wealth of knowledge made it a very interesting, educative and fascinating tour. I strongly recommend this tour for all art lovers!

This is a really good tour and interesting for children who may be flagging after all the history of Rome. Becky was the most enthusiastic guide I have ever met and really knew her stuff.
