    Super well organized and executed tour. Tour guide Erika was masterful and well versed in the history of the Vatican. She explained the important pieces and their meaning in the grand scheme of the collection. Wonderful tour all around.

    READ THIS IN FULL These people are awful. I booked very far in advance for 6/23. They messaged me on 6/17 stating that they needed to move my tour to 6/22. I notified this company within 30 minutes of this email that it would be challenging since I had another tour booked that same day and asked if there were any other times available earlier or later. They messaged me back on 6/19 to tell me there wasn't anything else they could do. They didn't ask for any confirmation, so I figured it was that time/date or nothing. On 6/21 they messaged me again, this time to confirm the new date/time would work, and I responded an hour or two later to tell them I rearranged my entire schedule and that it would work. They never messaged me back. So I show up at the new time on 6/22 and there is no "Eternity Tours" ANYWHERE at the meeting spot. I walk across the street to the small park where there are lots of tour groups. I ask someone if my group is there and he asks to see my ticket. This gentleman from another tour company goes, "I've never heard of this tour group," as they're heading several groups to the Domus. I walk back across the street and see an angry woman with her family just getting off an obviously upsetting phone call. I asked them, "Eternity Tours?" and I received an emphatic "YES," and she told me how she had just gotten off the phone with this "tour company" and the tour had been canceled. This same family had been rebooked at this magical made-up time and date. Apparently, "Eternity Tours" went ahead and sent this family 4 tickets to get into the Domus and now they were headed that way. So, great, now I'm messaging these idiots asking for help and getting silence. I walked with this family over to the Domus and they were denied entry. I never received a ticket so no shot I was getting in. The tour time was 2 pm. THESE IDIOTS SET UP OUR MEET FOR 2:15! This woman calls Eternity again. I still have not heard back from them, so I asked her if I could use her phone. This useless human at Eternity tells me they have no tickets because I didn't respond to them in a timely manner on 6/21 (total lie). They then tell me they had to cancel the tour because the tour time had changed (confirmed with Parco and the people working the gate the times never changed). DO NOT USE THIS TOUR COMPANY. What are they doing and why so many issues? They are selling you a slot and hoping they end up with a ticket to match your date/time or give you a date/time that will work for you. They aren't even giving you the tour.

    Best tour in Italy
    Francesca, our tour guide, was amazing! She provided so much historical knowledge and colorful insight! The views and the sites were great, we took so many photos! I really enjoyed the pace of the tour and the small group size. The Colosseum and Roman forum are unbelievable architectural, and historical sites! We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to learn about them through your group! Francesca even took family photos for each of us in beautiful locations. She got to know us all personally and was so much fun! Highly recommend!

    Overpriced and zero customer service
    Incredibly disappointed with this tour operator. We paid €207 for 3 tickets when the entry price per person on the official site is only €18 per person! The guide was late to the meeting point and all he had to do was walk us to the gate of the site and we were then handed over to the official guides. The reason it is so difficult to buy tickets on the official site is because tour operators like this bulk buy them and the sell on for an extortionate price. I have emailed the company three times for an explanation but I have not received a response.

    We learned so much!
    Cinzia was an excellent guide-- Our tour was thorough and educational but also quite entertaining, and there's no doubt that with Cinzia's expertise we gained so much more from our time in the Vatican than we would have on our own. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Italy! I will be recommending your tour company to friends.

    Knowledgeable and Enthusiastic
    Our Guide was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic, fantastic combination. Downside is the massive amount of other tourists like yourself walking through this space.

    Outstanding Tour Guide of Vatican
    Absolutely wonderful tour guide. Told us about the history and religious aspects. I learned things I never knew. I could listen to Jim all day. He is funny, fact filled and told us the deeper meaning in an easy to listen to manner that is easy to retain. Highly highly recommended. We had the 150pm Wednesday June 19 tour.

    Excellent introduction to Rome
    This was an excellent full-day (9am/4pm) tour private guided tour. Great way to discover the city and see the highlights. It was a very hot day (90F) and so quite challenging for the kids, but having our private guide was a huge saver of time (skipping lines, taking shortcuts…) and energy. Maria Letizia was our guide for the day. She managed to engage our 9 and 12 year olds for much of the tour, booked a table at a nice quiet (and cool) restaurant and generally made our lives so much easier. She introduced major concepts of history, art history, architecture etc, very quickly without overloading us. Thank you!!!

    Family collessum tour
    Franchesco was our guide. I've been here twice before. We saw and learned more than both times combined. Unfortunately we did not get to the underground as originally requested due to colosseum limits but they refunded the difference.

    amazing tour of the roman forum and colosseum
    the tour was so interesting. our guide Paolo made the roman forum and palatine hill come to life. we were given so many details and visuals how they lived. the colosseum was spectacular with so much information. the smaller group of 10 was perfect. Paolo was the perfect guide with a wealth of knowledge.

    Perfect Private Tour of the Vatican
    Absolutely spectacular tour with Lorenzo! We had a family of six and he was the most interesting & knowledgeable guide so far in Rome. It was a five hour tour with a little break. Perfect amount of time for the Vatican!! We loved being in a small group. Very impressed with Through Eternity Tours!

The private 4-hour tour of Venice was frustrating for the five of us. Eternity Tours needs to pay better attention to "easy peasy" directions with maybe a photo or map of the exact pick-up location for the guide. ET should not assume well-educated tourists can take written directions without any visual aids. WAY TOO MUCH time was spent looking for the guide. Remember ET's vernacular could very well be a MAIZE for people never in Venice before. Even though we were slowed down by figuring the meeting point, we did tip the guide because of his knowledge and willingness to be flexible.
