My family of 4 enjoyed 3 separate "semi-private" tours with Walks of Italy in Rome, including the Colosseum/Forum, Vatican museums, and a last-minute customized tour when we realized our 3rd tour itinerary overlapped with the 1st one. We went over spring break and never had more than 8 people in our groups, plus they use quality headsets that come in handy when traversing the more crowded sites/attractions.
Our guides proved knowledgeable and enthusiastic, very patient, and spoke excellent English. They even through in some dinner/ristorante recommendations when asked.
As mentioned above, when we realized our tour selections overlapped significantly, Walks of Italy called and made a special effort to accommodate us, even though it was outside their clear policies. Since we were the only ones signed up for the evening tour, our guide Joseph customized the tour to show us some new areas we would never had explored, including the Jewish "ghetto," and some lovely, small piazzas and churches off the beaten track. They really do go out of their way to ensure you have a quality experience.
I tend not to enjoy group tours, but this was definitely the way to go. Next time we visit Italy, we'll be sure to work with Walks of Italy again. Highly recommended!
