“Walking tour of Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We recently took the Walking Tour of Rome. Luca our guide was amazing. His fund of knowledge about the history of the sites was wonderful. He brought the history to life and made the time pass so quickly we were sorry yo see our day come to an end. Well worth the cost. If you love history Luca is the guide for you. The company is great. We had a problem paying through PayPal and they were more than accommodating. They responded promptly to our emails and worked out the glitch.

“Through Eternity - Vatican & St Peter's Basilica In Depth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We weren't sure when booking this 5 hour tour as to whether we would be checking our watches after a few hours wondering why we didn't just settle for the standard shorter option...we shouldn't have worried. We met our guide Marco this morning and he proved to not only be very professional and knowledgeable but also able to give so much more "life" to the tour by providing interesting background and detail to the art and artists. His profound knowledge of art history and the Vatican kept us enthralled that the time seemed to fly by. Just as impressive was his ability to move our small group through the crowds and larger tour groups, putting us in the best viewing positions for photos and discussions. I can honestly say that the Sistine Chapel would have been wasted on us without Marco's excellent presentation before entering and use of his ipad to explain details and anecdotes about the frescos and artists.
I would definitely recommend the in depth tour to get the most out of your time at the Vatican and to request Marco as your guide...An amazing day.

“More than a pile of old rocks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Our expert guides at Through Eternity Tour helped my teenage daughter and I go back in time and really understand what we were seeing and experiencing in Rome. Having taken these tours, I can't even imagine trying to understand Rome on our own. On one of our tours we were the only guests! Our guide tailored the tour to fit the interests of my daughter, including a visit to a cat refuge, a quirky and cool glass shop and, of course, gelato.

“Fun Time in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Gregory was caring, courteous and vastly knowledgable about the Vatican Museums and Basilica. He showed good taste in conduct and appearance and shared information in a very personable, easy to understand way. Mario was flexible, dedicated, passionate, and talented. While touring the Colosseum area with him, Mario brought ancient Rome alive for us with his engaging personality and stories of the past. The premiere service and fair pricing we received from Through Eternity was way above average of the norm.

“Through Eternity - Florence Tours; worth every Euro!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We just returned from Florence and possibly the best experience we had in Florence was the two tours we took with Through Eternity. What a refreshing relief to take these tours. As you watch the gigantic tours following the guide with the raised sign or umbrella, ear pieces in their ears walking solmenly through the city and sites it was so delightful to have such a personal tour. We had two tours; one, the Medici of Florence, we were the only couple, and the Uffizi and Academia, we were one of only three couples. Out guide for both tours was Angelo; he was extremely professional, and passionate about the tours and sites.

We had almost the identical tour experience in Rome two years ago. Highly, highly recommended for the value, the interest level and the ability for the guide to bring the subject alive.
