    Fabulous!
    Dario was a fabulous tour guide! So knowledgeable and clearly has a passion for history, but he was also very personable and we felt comfortable and at ease with him right away. For the three months leading up to our trip, he was in regular communication with me, sending me tips and recommendations that would help us during our trip. On the tour, he went out of his way to send me places to visit at our next stop on the Almafi coast. He also took his time with us, even going over our agreed upon time a slot, which we really appreciated. We felt like friends visiting his city, rather than customers. Book with Dario and you’re sure to have a great experience. Ciao!

    Great experience exploring Ancient Rome
    Our group of 4 (Mom, Mother-in-law and two teenage girls) did the walking tour of Ancient Rome which included the Pantheon, Forum and Colosseum. Our guide, Dario, was fantastic - very insightful and helpful in bringing these ancient places to life. He was knowledgeable about the sites, with pictures and descriptions to show how they looked two thousand years ago. He was also able to answer all of our extra questions about culture of those times and curiousities about present day Rome. In addition to his professionalism, he was incredibly patient and accommodating of our group and our need to rest with my elderly MiL’s injured back. It made the tour enjoyable for everyone. My family highly recommends investing in tours with local and knowledgeable guides and we think Joy of Rome has the best!

    Family visit if Rome
    Taking guided tours with Joy of Rome during 2 full days was an excellent decision. We enjoyed and learned so much more than going our own way. Francesca and Dario were so knowledgeable, interesting and friendly that we enjoyed every minute of our tours. Thank you so much for an exceptional service!!

    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!

    A brilliant museum
    So enjoyed our few hours in the Capitoline Museum, we purchased our tickets at the door only queued for a few minutes. Definitely worth a visit, a huge amount to see and very spacious. There is an incredible vista from the lower level, we spent 10mins complete alone taking beautiful photos of the city. Perfect

    You must visit this museum!
    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.

    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!

    Excellent museum and guide!
    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.

    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!!

Francesca was an educated delight! Her English and command of the history of the Jewish Quarter made our experience top-notch. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer and her warm personality didn't hurt either!

Dear Francine, grazie! the jewish district is so interesting, its history is heavy but important but i agree francesca has the rare skill of a real story teller and through her words even such a sad part of our history becomes acceptable and of course interesting and charming, thank you! angelica

We booked this tour last minute after stumbling across the Jewish Ghetto area of Rome while walking around. The history behind the Jewish ghetto is very sad, but intriguing. I cannot give enough positive feedback to our tour guide, Marta. She was amazing! Very friendly and very knowledgeable! We absolutely LOVED this tour!
