The Colosseum Rome An excellent well informed tour, the guide showed a lot of knowledge in a friendly way. As we went in November the weather was warm so pleasant to experience a 3 hour tour. Rome will be making this area a 'pedestrian area' from December 2014 so no more playing chicken with the cars and buses. As always... More

The day tourer of Rome is an excellent way to see all the essential sights of Ancient Rome. For people with a limited amount of time this is really the tour for you. Laura, our guide, was excellent and provided comprehensive and invaluable knowledge about the historical sights. A big, big bonus is that the tour provides you with priority... More

Massimo, our tour guide, cracks the Dan Brown code. This tour is a thrill ride (& walk) through the Rome of Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo. He does an excellent job of explaining this exciting mystery and knows the book and movie inside and out. As Saints and Scholars clash over science and religion Massimo explains how the art and architecture... More

The Gallery is a must see in Rome. We were part of a City Tours guided visit to the Gallery. In limited time available our guide focused on a few objects in each room, providing context for place and culture of the time period.

We booked this trip via Expedia before travelling. For 2 adults and a child the cost was approx £135. The tour lasted 3 hours you cover the roman forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. The guide (Eleanor I think) was very informative and you get to know a lot of the history, not just looking at a building. Would recommend... More

Our Guide from City Wonders, Peter, was very friendly and approachable. He had a comprehensive knowledge of the subject, which you might expect, but in a museum of this size and complexity is still a remarkable achievement. This allowed him to make the most of our tour by structuring it around the time and space available amongst the many other... More

I would certainly recommend to anyone (although I do not recommend booking more than 1 tour in the same day like I did! My legs still hurt... More
