This tour was extremely interesting and well worth the money! Our guide Karina was very knowledgable about everything we saw and we loved the entire day. I would highly recommend that this tour be on everyone's "must see" list while in Rome.

This tour was just fantastic and one must partake when in Rome. Our tour guide Daniel was absolutely fabulous. He was very knowledgeable during the tour and the tour was very well organized. However, it was Daniel's wit and animation which made the tour top of the line! Anyone can take one on a tour, but it takes an individual... More

I was not sure what to expect with a Vatican tour. However, this was an unexpected joy. Our tour guide Sev, an archeologist, was extremely knowledgeable , and made the tour very interesting. It was a lesson in art history, as well as site history. We missed the queues, and accessed areas off limits to the general public. All in... More

Being underground, where so much of "it" happened in the Coloseum years ago, was amazing. The architecture, the history, the stories…fantastic. Also being able to go out on onto the area that would have been the gladiators floor (or part of it) gives a very cool perspective. This is only available with the private/semi-private tours. General admission to the colosseum... More

We did the Colosseum underground tour which included the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill. It was 3.5 hours and $ well spent. Two great guides and access to several parts of the Colosseum not available to general admission. And you skip the queues. Pace was about right and a group of 20 (i think fully booked) was manageable.

City Wonders and the tour guide they provided, Alice, made our visit to Milan the highlight of our recent trip to northern Italy. The pride that Alice showed in her city and the knowledge she shared with us made us want to spend even more time exploring Milan after the initial 3 hour tour had concluded. I can not imagine...

I was advised by my sister-in-law on the morning that we were flying to Rome that we should book to see the Vatican City in advanced since tickets/tours get sold out quickly. She advised Dark Rome Tours so I booked whilst we having our early morning breakfast at Giraffe (Terminal 5 Heathrow - fast service!). I was not dissappointed. The... More

We booked a private tour with (Dark Rome Tours) prior to arriving in Rome for our holiday and very glad we did. We booked two tours with them, the first was to tour the Vatican City and the second was for the Forum which included the Colosseum. Both tours were superb and well worth booking in advance.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Alice. Very informative and knowledgeable about Milan, art and history. A great base to get a good feel for the city and explore further.

Great tour! Great tour guide! I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to get full experience of The Vatican. It was almost worth the price of the tour to skip the long line to get into the museum alone as that probably saved at least an hour of our time. The only down-side was that we booked... More
