“Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius Tour was Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010

My husband and I took this tour and we had an awesome time. Maximo our guide was great and his English was wonderful. He was very knowledgable. We had the opportunity to hike up to the crater of Mount Vesuvius, which has a breath taking view of Naples and the bay. Then we had authentic pizza lunch. Finally off to Pompeii for a guided tour by a local guide. Very interesting and fun. Just be prepared to walk and then walk some more. You will be so tired when your all done.

“Best of Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2010

We took several tours throughout Italy, in Rome, Tuscany, and Venice. Of all of these, the tours offered by Dark Rome were the best. Each guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic and really took care of the groups. Unlike with some other tours, we could actually hear our Dark Rome guides, even in large crowds. We had Lorenzo for Best of Rome, which was a great introduction to the city; he really helped me to discover Rome, to appreciate the history behind the architecture and sculpture that can seem overwhelming to the untrained eye. On other days we enjoyed Vivi Anna for Ostia Antica, who offered a fantastic, intimate tour of ancient ruins; and Massimo for Crypts and Catacombs, a fascinating and bizarre look at death.

“Outstanding tour of Vatican with Dark Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

Knowledgeable & dynamic tour guide added greatly to an already exceptional experience. This 3 hour tour of Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel bypassed a long line on visitors that were doing the tour on their own - we met a couple that night who had waited over 2 hours in the hot sun to get in. Plenty of photo ops (no flash) except no photos allowed in Sistine Chapel. Wear comfortable shoes - lots of walking & stair climbing - and carry a water bottle.

“An Entertaining Experience that was the Highlight of our Rome trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2010

The Dark Rome Angels & Demons tour was fantastic -- our guide, Robert, made the book come to life as he reviewed the story line and showed us the sites highlighted in the book -sharing history, art appreciation, and the truth (and fiction -- he called it "poetic license") of the book/movie. The tour was well orchestrated with buses, a coffee break, and some walking. Our guide was fantastic -- as much an actor as a tour guide. We highly recommend this for both fans of Dan Brown's work, as well as those not familiar with it!
