We had read a lot about long queues at the Colosseum and the Vatican and people had recommended using a tour guide to get as much from our visit as we could. I found the City Wonders trips on Expedia and booked a tour for each venue. The instructions I received by email were clear and the guides were easy... More

Would absolutely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area! Be sure your camera battery is charged and you drink plenty of water - this is an all day experience - and well worth it. This was my favorite part of my Italy vacation.

This was a great tour to a local vineyard and tasting of local wines. It was nice to get out of the busy city center and out into the beautiful countryside. The wine was fantastic!!!

I would highly recommend booking a tour of the Vatican with this company. David took our tour, a full 3 hours spent in all of the important locations within the Vatican. David made our tour individual, entertaining and even humorous! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend this to anyone! Thank you David!!

The tour guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgable. The tour itself was fascinating. I would definitely not have gotten so much from the visit without this tour.

City Wonders company produce fantastic tours in various cities in Europe. I booked 2 tours - Underground Colosseum tour and 4.5 hrs Vatican tour. Both were fantastic - tour guide Alessandro in Vatican was just exceptional - one of the best tour guides and tours i had in years. Marina was a tour guide for Colosseum/Forum and was just great....

Excellent tour, well worth pre booking to avoid queues, certainly worth the money, very informative. A three hour tour which started at 10.00 and went on until 1.30, an extra 30 mins, which doesn't happen very often.

I was very impressed with this company and the tour guide. They were well organized and the meeting point was easy to find. The guide spoke English well, with just enough accent to remind us we were in Italy. Knowledgeable, friendly, clever and able to explain the history without sounding bored or like a memorized script. The tour uses headphones... More
