We took the Colosseum/ Forum tour one day and the Vatican/ Sistene Chapel tour the next day with our three boys. Our guide, Anna, was excellent. She knew how to pace the tours, the level of information, and the short breaks, to get the most from the boys for the experience. Anna really brought Rome to life for us and the experience will live long in the memory!
Email communication to organise the tour was fast and accurate. Thanks to the team at Private Tours of Rome.

One top tip from Anna - treat yourself (and the kids) to a gelato at Flor after the Colosseum tour!

We loved this tour. Agata was out guide and she was amazing! So knowledgeable, kind, and punctual. We loved skipping the lines and going around large groups. She personalized the tour taking us to places that were on the way to the major sites and pointing out the history of each place. We loved spending the morning and early afternoon on the tour but then having the rest of the day to explore on our own! We highly recommend this tour! And we recommend Agata as a guide !

A very well organised tour. The first day was a visit to the Coloseum and it was very easy to find our guide and we were taken straight in. Our guide was very knowledgable, it was then over to the Forum, we would of liked to see Palantine Hill but this was not part of our tour and time passed all too quickly at the Coloseum and I feel we would of liked longer here. It was then time to visit various squares our particular favourite was Piazza Navona. and the Pantheon. A very enjoyable day. Day 2 was the Vatican Myseums and the Bascillica. This was absolutely fascinating and again our guide was easy to find and on time, her knowledge was incredible. This was my favourite day.
The organisation behind this tour was very good with clear instructions sent to me and my messages to the company answered quickly.
It was lovely to have our own private guide with us at all times and I would highly recommend this tour, it was a very relaxing way to see the major sites and to have one to one time with such knowledgable interesting locals and to able to ask whatever questions you liked and go at your own pace both guides were keen to tailor the tour to your requirements.

We travelled to Rome with 2 teenagers who were not interested in touring "old buildings". After the first part of our tour, both teenagers were really excited to learn more! Our guide was very friendly, took his time to show us around and answer any question we had. He made it fun and really took us all back in time. It felt like history came alive!!! With so much to see I can only recommend the tour. Not standing in long lines was a life (and nerve) saver! All of us enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend. Booking and scheduling was easy as well.

Agatha was our guide on day 1 and Francesco was our guide on day 2. Both guides were EXTREMELY knowledgeable, friendly, personable and patient. They both took the time to explain things to us in a way we would understand. They both thoroughly enjoyed their jobs. English was not their first language, however, they spoke it VERY well. Their were NO language barriers.
Day 1 there was ALOT of walking involved, as you are seeing the colesseum, Roman forum, Trevi fountain, piazza navona, panthenon, and capital hill. I feel like I’m leaving out some attractions....because Agatha IS so knowledgeable, she was pointing out things along our walk!
Day 2 you are seeing the Vatican, Sistine chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Francesco had us sit down and explain Michelangelo and the Sistine chapel in extreme detail, had he not done that, we would not know what to look for or the significance of the art.

This was a fantastic start to our trip! Highly recommended!

Awesome all round.
Our driver, Marco Accettola, was punctual and VERY knowledgeable. Driving us around, stopping when we wanted for photo ops.
Very professional and accomodating and his Mercedes people carrier was smoothe and luxurious.
Our guides?
I can’t say enough about Massimo and Lucia.
They were both fun and informative. Wonderful personalities in their own right.
Both very patient and open to the questions we offered.
This was a 10/10 experience for me and my family and I have no hesitation in recommending this service.

This was a great tour, and both guides were very knowledgeable and informative. The first day we toured the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and the Pantheon. 4 hours is insufficient time for all of these stops. Although we walked briskly and didn’t stop for long at any place, we still had to take a taxi to make it to the Pantheon before it closed. We spent too much time at the Roman Forum, and too little time at all the other places. 3 hours on Day 2 for Vatican City was perfect, and Irene’s English was impeccable. Since this was a private tour, Irene catered it to our interests, stopping when and where we chose, and allowing us ample time at each location. She also provided us with other locations in which she thought we’d be interested, for exploring on our own. I’d recommend at least 6 hours to tour the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and the Pantheon, and wear sturdy walking shoes, as the ground is uneven in many parts. Skipping the lines is absolutely the way to go, unless you want to spend a full day waiting to enter the attractions!

One the best decision we made was to book a private tour with this company, our guide Francesco was fantastic, very knowledgeable, friendly, personable and funny, he made our day. He was pointing out details that you would never get from a tour with a large group.
