“Rome at Twilight among the Piazzas and Fountain tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The Rome at Twilight among the Piazzas and Fountains tour was a lot of fun. I was very impressed with the knowledge of our tour guide, he kept us entertained throughout the whole tour. The groups are small and the guide made everyone fell part of the group.

Dear Ross Naples,

Thank you so much for your kind words about your tours with Through Eternity. No doubt your positive experience at the sites is due to the hard work of your guide. Our mission at Through Eternity is to inspire a newfound interest in Rome's history for newcomers and to continue a lifelong love affair with the city for veteran visitors. The guides who work with us have not only incredible scholastic backgrounds in their subjects but also have tremendous passion for their city and want to impart that to all their clients. We hope that this trip will be the first of many to Rome.

All the best,
The Customer Care Team

“Knowledgeable and Personable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We took 3 tours in Rome--The Vatican Museums, The Colosseum, and Rome Twilight.

All three were superb. The tour guides were walking encyclopedias. They were so up close and personal. I would recommend without hesitation. These tours are for people who thirst for knowledge. We got our fill.

“Worth every penny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

We booked the tour for the Roman Forum and Coliseum and it was wonderful. Our guide, Katia, was extremely knowledgeable and her presentation was very professional and friendly. We would definitely recommend this tour. Having only 12 in the group made it very personal and enjoyable. The meeting place was easy to find and Katia was delightful. Well worth the money....book this tour!!

Dear Dgat2,

We're very happy to hear how much you enjoyed your Ancient City group tour with Katia. Working with intelligent and enthusiastic guides is essential to ensuring that our clients have the most enjoyable experience possible and our management team goes to great lengths to work with the best guides in Rome.

We're also glad that you appreciated the small group sizes. Your time at these sites is precious and we've found that the smaller groups are much more conducive to an in-depth experience at the monuments. We deliberately limit our group tours to 13 people, which is large enough for us to charge group prices but remain small enough for a more personalized experience.

Thank you so much for your review. We sincerely hope to tour with you again, perhaps next time in Florence or Naples.

Best,
The Customer Care Team

“Through eternity tours”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Nice people but tours best for intellects, a little boring. My 12 year old just managed to get through two tours - the ancient city essential experience, colosseum, roman forum and palatine hill and twilight tours. Way too long for what was seen. The twilight tour was better, the guy was much more interesting. Don't recommend for children.

“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

My mother and I went on The Ancient City In-Depth Experience, Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Our guide was Luca and I can't say enough nice things about him. Fortunately, we went at the end of the season so the heat and crowds weren't that big of an inconvenience. Our group was 12 with one person using a walker. Luca's use of the English language was excellent and funny, since he had been an exchange student in his younger years. He is working on his PhD and had actually done some of the digs at the Forum. His knowledge was first hand and included fact and stories that were both informative and interestingly creepy. We had a wonderful time and I would recommend the company and Luca, specifically.
