We took the tour of the Catacombs with our family including 2 of our grandchildren. Our tour guide Katrina was fantastic. She was very informative and could keep your attention and the kids as well. She presented the facts in away that was interesting. Great tour.

My wife and I couldn't be happier with our trip to Pompeii, the highlight of our European tour. Initially we were nervous due to previous experience with other company's tour group and how long it would be with other strangers. This tour was different, firstly the group was split into two smaller groups. Our tour leaders, Elena and Sara were... More

Wonderful experience well worth every penny! Organisation and guide excellent. If you like history then this is a must do tour. Avoiding the lines of people and hearing the stories of Roman times made this tour highly recommended

The Colosseum and surrounding areas of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill are not to be missed! The vastness of the Colosseum just knocks your socks off, and to go through with a tour guide who is extremely knowledgeable (as we did) made the experience all the better. Our guide moved us through an incredibly large crowd to get in... More

I would book this tour if you were bored in Rome and wanted to learn about the city. Otherwise I would stick to the skip the line tours because you get the most out of those.

Our guide Rebecca was wonderful, she was friendly, very knowledgeable and a great communicator. She kept her tour light and entertaining but also provided a lot of detail which was fascinating. The whole experience was fantastic - from the warm and comfortable bus to the amazing sites and the excellent guide. I absolutely recommend this City Wonders tour.

Day 1, we visited the crypts and St, Sebastien catacombs, Karina was our tour guide and she was amazing, very knowledgeable which... More
