    Fantastic experience with kids in the Colosseum
    We had a phenomenal experience with Maria, our Colosseum guide from Joy of Rome. She was friendly and engaging from the first moments, taking special interest in our son (10 years) and daughter (8 years). She whisked us right to the front of the line and helped us negotiate the ticket-taking and ID check process. Once inside, she knew the Colosseum comprehensively, stopping to point out interesting facts and details. She was constantly asking questions of the kids and getting them to use their imaginations, explaining Roman history in a way that was appropriate for them. An impromptu bathroom break was no problem, and we resumed our tour. Maria had a bag full of activities to match the several exhibits she showed us, which the kids enjoyed completing. Maria also knew some of the best spots for views and photos, allowing us breaks to take snapshots. Keeping the kids' attention for 2+ hours is not easy, yet Maria was able to do it through her thoughtful questions and friendly nature. Easily the best tour guide we've ever had, anywhere. Her help with the logistics (tickets/lines) alone would have made the cost worth it; we got so much more out of the experience, for which we are very grateful. Also worth noting that Alexandra from Joy of Rome, with whom we corresponded before and after the visit, was extremely helpful and provided all the details we needed before our arrival. Can't say enough good things about Joy of Rome generally, and Maria specifically. We've enthusiastically recommended Joy of Rome to all our friends with kids who are considering taking kids to Rome. Our 2 hours with Maria were the highlight of our vacation!

    Personal tours are the way to go!
    My friends and I had an excellent tour of the Franciscan Crypts and the Catacombs with Marco. We highly recommend Joy of Rome and guides, Francesca, Marco and Grace. I met Francesca in 2015 and enjoyed the tours so much, I booked them again for my recent trip in October. Grace was our guide for the Colosseum and the Forum. The guides are so knowledgeable and have a great sense of humor. These tours were the best part of our trip….and that is saying something! Everything is amazing in Italy!! Thank you, Joy of Rome!!

    Second Amazing Experience with Fracesca
    This is the second time Francesca has been our guide at The Vatican. The first time was in 2017 for just my husband and me. This time we brought our niece and her roommate and Francesca did not disappoint. She is phenomenal! Her love of the Vatican, the art, and Rome shines through. She is able to bring everything to life and make it real with her stories and knowledge. We sought out Joy of Rome and Francesca this time because our first experience was so amazing. Since she was our guide in 2017, we have done a great deal of traveling all over the world and we compare every tour guide to Francesca. It is actually a conversion we have after every tour. "Was this one as good as Francesca?" No one has come close. Thank you, Francesca! This is a picture of my husband and me with Francesca in 2017 and again this year. She hasn't aged a bit!

    Must see in Rome
    What a wonderful museum! The Borghese Gallery is unique for its history and we would have missed so much if we hadn't one with Ilaria from Joy of Rome. She clearly adores the Gallery and knows so much. She was the perfect guide and seeing the museum was such a treat. Timed entry is very important as they limit the number of visitors very strictly and you have to check all your purses (so I didn't take one). A must see!!

    Wonderful tour off the beaten path
    Wonderful tour! Ilaria was our tour guide -- in fact she was our guide for 3 Joy of Rome tours -- and she was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. English was great. This tour was wonderful because it was off the beaten path without 1000s of tourists, but yet it was easy to get to and taught us something new. We highly recommend!!

    Best Tour Guide!
    This was the best tour we had in Italy! Grace was an amazing guide, so knowledgeable and helpful. The Vatican is so big and overwhelming but she made it enjoyable for our entire group ages 24-85. I can't recommend enough! SO worth it to have a private guide - no waiting in lines. Especially great because we were short on time in Rome. Thank you Grace and Joy of Rome!!

    Wonderful Vatican by Night Tour
    I took the Vatican by Night Tour in August 2023 with my two sons, aged 19 and 22. Laura was our wonderful, knowledgeable tour guide for the evening. The tour was perfectly paced, Laura stopping for extra attention in the pieces we found most interesting. The evening tour was special with fewer crowding and a more enjoyable pace and visit. I highly recommend Joy of Rome and will use them for our next visit!

    Great Vatican tour for our kid!
    This tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Rome. Our guide Grace designed the tour for our 9-year old daughter, and she loved the experience! At the same time, our guide answered questions that I had about the art that helped enrich the experience for me too. If I went back to Rome I would certainly book another tour with this company.

    Fabulous tour for ALL ages, but especially groups with kids
    This was an EXCELLENT TOUR...I can't recommend it enough. The Vatical Museums is such a huge place and can be overwhelming if you try to do it on your own, but with this private guide it was an enjoyable and informative tour. It was very busy the day that we were there and the lines to get in were VERY long, so doing the skip the line entry really helped to keep all of us from melting down. Our fantastic guide had nice books and visual aids to help our 7 year old son learn more about the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel. She was very patient with all of us and our various ages/interest levels, and we ALL learned a lot and and ALL really enjoyed our guide. The length of the tour was great for all of us to learn a lot, but wasn't so long that we were bored.

    Most enjoyable Tour in Rome especially if you have kids!!!
    This is our first time ever traveling to Rome which was quite intimidating and overwhelming. Our colosseum tour with Serena was a breath of fresh air! We have four young kids aged 9, 7, 5, and 3 and I was so nervous they would be bored out of their mind. Serena showed up with enthusiasm and I automatically knew we were going to enjoy that tour! She kept the kids engaged and excited to learn more! They ended up saying it was their favorite part of Rome! Serena and this company is a blessing especially when you have kids who need that extra patience and excitement! To make it even better, her English was so easy to understand which is always a worry when you’re out of the country! Also to top it all off, she happily took pictures of us as a family! We will definitely book with them again if/when we visit Rome in the future!

    Great family tour of the Vatican!
    Our guide Francesca did a wonderful job taking us around the Vatican Museums. She made the tour enjoyable and educational (but just the right amount of educational or our kids (age 9 and 12) most certainly would have complained). We were very happy to have Francesca lead us on the private tour given how crowded the Vatican Museums are; otherwise, it might have felt overwhelming for the kids. We did a few different family-oriented private tours during our trip with other guides and Francesca was definitely the kids' favourite.

    Amazing 3 tours in 2 days!
    We booked three wonderful tours with Joy of Rome, and Serena was our guide for all three tours including Rome walking tour, Vatican, skip the line tour, and Colosseum tour. She is a wealth of knowledge, super friendly and personable, also flexible with schedule and attentive with all questions. Would highly recommend!

Amazing tour! Excellent guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Her passion for the museum made it even more interesting and exciting. We will remember her and the museum fondly. If you like to hear the history of art and artifacts as you view them, this is the tour and tour for you.

I couldn't find a page for the official museums so i'll review here even if I don't know Joy of Rome Tours (i'm sure you are wonderful). For me, this museum was the best place I visited in Rome. Incredible artefacts from ancient Rome can be found inside and it's not so busy either.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to tour the Capitoline Museum today with Francesca. I cannot remember spending a more enjoyable and informative three hours. Her training and depth of knowledge resulted in the best tour we have had during our three trips to Rome. She answered all of our questions not only about the museum and it’s contents, which were spectacular, but about Rome in general and what else we might want to do. A tour with Francesca is a must do in Rome! Brice Ladson

My wife and I booked a private tour of the Capitoline Museums during our visit to Rome. We had missed these museums on our previous visits to Rome and wanted to do it right this time. We were very pleased with our decision to do the Joy of Rome tour as it really brought the museum alive for us. From the moment we met Francesca in the courtyard she made us feel like old friends that she was sharing her favorite museum with. She was fun and very knowledgable, sharing interesting details that we would have otherwise likely missed, including the center point in the courtyard where all roads that lead to Rome converge. The sculptures, art and architecture in the Capitoline Museums is breathtaking, but the experience is really enhanced when you have a private guide that has an intimate knowledge of the place and it's history. Francesca was all this and more - a terrific guide and a genuinely great person to spend a few hours with. We highly recommend this tour and Francesca, specifically, as a guide.

We spent a delightful morning at the Museums with our guide, Nicole. The Museums have a magnificent collection that documents the history of Rome and our guide could not have been better. Nicole's in-depth knowledge and passion came through from start to finish.
