Not a ‘native’ English speaker as the website says their guides are. She was late and then WhatsApped for the whole of the tour. Took away our radios in the crowded Map Room so further communication impossible. I felt we were an imposition in her...More

I booked the Vatican Tour with one company but somehow got a confirmation for Romaround Tours. This was the second time to do this tour and I was very very disappointed. First, we reach the office 40 mins before our tour and somehow we manage...More

Going in a group was not worth it at all, especially with this company. Firstly you still had endure a lot of waiting around, and when walking around inside the museums you didn’t really get talked through things methodically. We were also told to meet...More

Firstly, we don't normally do tours, but in Rome had fallen for the spiel about how you have to book a tour to 'skip the line', which influenced us heavily in paying for this 'tour'. What a joke! We payed 3 times what the private...More

Not only are they annoyingly persistent but they are also rude and not worth what you end up paying for. They tell you that you’ll skip the line, only to send you to another line. The first day we scheduled the trip at the Colosseum...More

Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is
a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every

Not sure which tour you're referring to but if it's the Vatican tour, it's supposed to be 2.5 hours but it was about 3.5 including the time they wasted at the beginning. Cost was $50 per person. The colloseum took from 9:30... More
