There are so many beautiful and interesting places in Rome to choose from. This tour helps to cover some of the places tourists, or at least me, just pass by and read a bit about them online. This tour really has added value and definitely worth the 2 hours. We had the tour with Pedro, (second tour with him) - a great guide with tones of knowledge, fun facts and great humor which makes the tour way more fun than just reading online.
This is the 4th tour we took with free tour Rome and we will definitely come back for more, always professional guides that add a lot of (well deserved) charm to the internal city.
Highly recommend!

The free walking tour with Michael was one of the best parts in my entire trip around Rome. He is very knowledgeable, explains clearly and was able to answer all of our questions. He even gives you his own opinions in each matter which is very interesting and fun. My only regret is not booking more tours with him. Which I highly recommend

Sarah was very knowledgable and entertaining; the legend of the cherub still makes me smile. I was particularly impressed by her knowledge of the Forum. These tasters gave me an appetite to visit the inside of the Forum and Colloseum on my next visit to Rome. Thank you Sarah.

A good short tour to see the sites of ancient Rome from Piazza Venezia to the The Colosseum. Our guide Pedro was very friendly and informative and busted many of the myths of who we thought were Roman emperors. His historical knowledge was great and interesting and we found out many things about the construction and history of Rome which we had learnt from television were wrong!. Two hours well spent.

Love seeing the ancient sites and hearing the stories. However- I wish there were a bit more time to take pictures. I felt that we were just going from site to site quickly and after a while it became information over load. Carolina was very knowledgeable and made the facts interesting, would love to have her be the guide again!

I was slightly skeptical when I first booked the tour, given the “free tour” advertisement. I assumed that it may not be as good as the others but was looking for a way to save on cash.

I was immediately mistaken. Our tour guide, Michael was incredible. He was entertaining, interesting and brought energy and passion to the entire tour. The people I met on the guide were equally wonderful.

Additionally, I soon realised, as had also been advertised on the tour as I booked it, that the tour was tip driven- which Michael said incentivised us to only pay us what we felt he deserved.

If I had more money, I would have given it to him. He was all I hoped for and more as a tour guide. I am hoping to come back to Rome with my family and will be looking to book the same tour with him once again.

We were only 2 who came for the tour and was an awesome with Michael. He is very charismatic person and has a deep knowledge about the city, Italian culture. To be honest it was one of the best tour in my life. With his talent he should be a professional guide.

Thank you!!!

Enjoyed a fun and educational tour with Claudia from Naples who was a great guide! I wish I had done this tour earlier during my trip to Rome because she had a lot of great tips for tourists. The best one was only going to trattorias, osterias, or for appetivo when going out to eat as ristorantes are all too expensive and not good food.

Claudia was also very accommodating as there was a pregnant woman on our tour and she made sure to check in with her to see if she needed a break and tried to avoid any steep paths. She was also very encouraging for us to take pictures throughout the tour.

We planned to go to the coliseum after which worked out perfect since that was the last stop on the tour. Definitely recommend!

We went on the tour with Sara, who was great fun and helped to bring all the ancient ruins and buildings to life!
One thing I would suggest is a change of time as 12.00 means you have to plan your day around the tour- a 10 or 11 start would be easier.
