“The highlight of our trip - wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Lara was amazing and she was worth every penny. Without her we would of missed so much history and she made things feel alive with her wonderful knowledge and stories of the colosseum. She spoke perfect english and i was sad when the tour ended. This tour is really worth the money especially if like us you only have limited time to look around and there is so much to take in.

“Truly amazing guides Francesca and Christiian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

This company hands down provides the best service and outstanding guides. My review is just another to add to the exemplary list of reviews by others. We visited Rome in November and toured with Christiana for the Vatican and Francesca for the Colloseum and Forum. Both were simply stated the two best guides we have ever had. Christiana is an art historian and although this was my fourth time to the Vatican it was my first private tour--And how we learned and enjoyed. Francesca is an archeologist now no longer actively on this profession but her dissertation was on a excavation she led in the forum. Again a stupendous learning experience. Beside their comprehensive knowledge both are lovely people Next trip to Rome will definitely do another tour with this company. Lastly if you do price comparisons with the other tour providers in TripAdvisor this company is the most reasonable. So worth it!! Congrats for your service. We are grateful and so much more knowledgeable about Rome and its history

“Vatican, and Colloseum Tour - brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Was recommended by a cousin, who did the Vatican tour. My initial email query was responded to straight away by Anna, and in about 2 hours, was able to book a following day tour to the Vatican. Francesca was our guide, and she spoke fluent English, and very accommodating. Nothing was rushed. Also obligingly took our family photos. To me, the insights she provided into the tour were what made it special. You get to appreciate what you're actually seeing.

As we were happy with the Vatican tour, we booked the Colloseum for the next day too, also with Francesca. Same thing. She was prompt. She also printed the online-booked tickets for us, as we didn't have access to a printer (you book the tickets separately from their service).

Her use of the ipad for the Vatican tour, and books/map for the colloseum was effective.

Many Thanks to Anna and Francesca - would definitely recommend them.

“Awesome. Worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

We toured the Coloseum/the Forum and Vatican City with Veronica and Roberta. Both guides were very knowledgable, were able to answer all of our questions and clearly spoke English. Natives to Rome they were able to give us the unique insight. I strongly recommend this tour agency to anyone visiting Rome.

“Best way to start your time in Rome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Sorry it has taken me so long to write this review, but I was away over 9 weeks. My sister and I visited Rome in September and had a fabulous time. We decided to take a full-day private tour since my sister had not been to Rome before. We wanted to touch on all major sightseeing points without having to wait in long lines. Our guide for the day, Francesca, meet us at the Coloseum Metro stop. This began our marvelous and informative tour that we will never forget. Francesca was a warm and friendly woman whose knowledge of Rome was amazing. She took us to the major sights in the city and we never felt rushed. With her knowledge our enjoyment of each destination was even better than expected. At the end of the day it was sad to say good-by, since we felt we had made a new friend. Thank you Francesca for some great memories of Rome!
