This tour was the worst tour I have ever been to. The operator of the tour disrespected his workers and clients. He was disrespectful to my family when we were negotiating. I DISLIKE this tour very much. The only alright experience with this, is the open wi fi.

I was waiting in line for the vatican until I was harassed by a very nice but persistant man he cut me and my family a very good deal for skipping the line and a tour but this was a short lasting victory as we had gotten to the agency at 9:00 am being told our time was for 10:00, it is now 11:00 am and we have yet to see a tour guide and when asking for money back we were harrased and told to wait till 11:00 we have but we have yet to see anything in conclusion worst service ever they were rude and very dishonest and I would not recomend going here the only good thing I have to say is that in the street waiting I found an open wifi. :P

We first came into contact with Romaround tours when we were strolling outside the Colosseum. A friendly woman approached us and asked if we were interested in taking a guided tour. We wanted to go in the colosseum and decided that a guided tour was probably best so that we could get a feel of the history of the place. We paid 21 Euros because we were under 21. The tour guide was great - i can't remember her name but she was very informative and really knew what she was talking about. She gave a tour of the outside of the Colosseum and explained what everything was used for etc. After that we skipped all the queues and went diredctly into the Colosseum. She took us around the whole colosseum and explained everything about the Colosseum to us and answered questions as they were fired at her. After this we met another tour guide (Mark Anthony) at the exit and he took us to the Roman Forum and guided us around. It was short but that was expected because it was complimentaryand wasn't included in the price.

We also went with Mark Anthony to the Vatican. It was a great tour where he took us to all the major things which most people wanted to see. It is virtually impossible to do the Vatican museums and see everything - its just too extensive. He was very informative and made sure that all questions were answered and all topics covered. Again another great tour. If you get the chance i would recommend you use this company for tours.

My boyfriend and I were both In Rome for the first time, and since the city has so much history, we decided to splurge on guided tours. Despite our tight budget, we wanted to make the trip worth it, and Romaround helped us do that. We were approached outside the Colosseum for a guided tour and decided to go for it, largely due to the fact that doing so would let us skip the massive, unmoving line to get in--seriously, we were so sad at first seeing the line, thinking we wouldn't even be able to handle the hours of waiting. Anyway, our tour guide was hilarious, a native Roman who also spoke great English, and we learned a lot. The tour also included the Roman forum, where we had a guide called Marc Anthony (seriously!) who is American and extremely passionate and knowledgeable.

We enjoyed this tour so much that we took Marc up on his offer to do the Vatican tour the next day. Vatican City is overwhlemingly huge. Even a guided tour was 3 hours, and that's skipping over the fluff and going for the really important bits of history...seriously, it would be physically impossible to see everything. The Vatican City is so crowded with tourists, here you have earphones and listen to your guide that way. The office for Romaround is very close to Vatican City.

We were approached by a representative outside of the Vatican and decided to take the offered tour. We had the best guide, David, who was really really good and really knew about the Vatican and it's museums. Our guide was friendly and he spoke English very clearly (he was an American). We recommend this tour to everyone, it wasn't too expensive and you definitely got more out of visiting the Vatican with a tour guide.
