“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

The Roman Forum is an absolute must if you have an interest in history, there are so many amazing sights here its hard to get your head around the fact they have survived so long. I recommend doing a tour with a local guide, their knowledge is unsurpassable

“Ancient Rome City Tour with Roman Odyssey Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Emily with Roman Odyssey Tours was fantastic in that she went beyond the call of duty to help me insure my family was taken care of in Rome. Taxi's, Travel to the Airport, Dinner reservations at some of the best native restaurants in Rome and more.
John was our tour guide of the Ancient City and was enthusiastic, knowledgable and above all sensitive to our family who had never seen Rome. His patience in explanation of the AC were exemplary. John also is a sommelier and was able to show us the rare and hard to find restaurants and wine that you would "never" find.
When I return, I "will" use John and Emily again as they insured our trips success.

“Ancient Rome with SoniaTavoletta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I agree with Garth, Sonia was amazing, her knowledge and passion truly made the tour special.
She assisted navigating long entrance lines and getting my family quickly into the Colosseum and Vatican Museum. Well worth the money for someone of her talent.

“Ilaria Marsili”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We 'found' Ilaria through her sister Marta who is also a tour guide (who is also excellent and reviewed separately). We spent one tour with Ilaria in and around St Peter's and Castel Sant' Angelo and had a great time. She is infectious with her enthusiasm and educational with her historical knowledge. She kept our entire group (family ranging from 13 to 80) engaged and learning the entire time. We would highly recommend Ilaria, but make sure you book in advance as she is very busy, particulary during the summer months.

“Rome in three days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Just finished our three day stay in rome with my wife and two kids ages 10 and 11. We were blown away by the rich history and culture Rome has to offer. The Roma Pass was a very good investment in that you did not make any lines to enter colesium and other attractions and all public transport was included. There is so much to see that you have to prioritize which sites you want to visit. The highlight of the trip was the Vatican Museum and the Colesium with Palatine Hill and Roman Forum, just breath taking. We will plan a second trip to this magnificent city.
