We decided to celebrate our 30th anniversary in Rome and wanted to enjoy the city to it’s full. We researched, decided and booked three Rome City tours; Sightseeing Walking Tour, Coliseum & Ancient Rome Tour and the Vatican Tour. We were very impressed with the organisation before our visit; the speed of response from their office and the information packs were impressive. We had a similar experience to others in that we needed a last minute change in itinerary due to Pope Francis staging an event at the Vatican – without the advice from Anna we would never have known.
We were met by our guide for the duration; Lara on the day of the first tour and she walked us round the sights of the City centre. She paced the walk impeccably and her selection of sights was excellent. The Coliseum tour was next and without her it would have taken us considerably longer and I’m sure we would have seen and understood much less. The final day was spent at the Vatican and similar to other reviewers we were so pleased as Lara guided us through the fantastic place and concentrated on what we wanted to see. If it had been left to me we would have spent far more time getting through the early galleries and would have been exhausted before we arrived at the Raphael rooms!
We very much appreciated Lara’s thoughtful consideration and knowledge sharing whilst with and would highly recommend this organisation.

We went on the Private Tour - Rome Day Tours and we couldn't recommend it more highly. With so many such tours being offered in Rome, it must be very hard to choose between one and another but having been on this one, we can't imagine how any other could be better, hence the five stars.

In the company of Vera, our guide, we were shown all the best bits of Rome in the limited time we had without feeling that we were rushed or herded from one place to another like cattle and she had the uncanny knack of imparting knowledge in an interesting way.

Touring the Colosseum, Vera's use of illustrations on her tablet and the book she brought along with her brought its history to life for both our kids (aged 14 and 12) and us.

As for the The Vatican, without Vera and her structured tour we wouldn't have known where to start and would have been going round in circles in its vastness and not seen half the things that we did.

She had an amazing knowledge of the city and was able to give us little bits of general knowledge that we would have had no idea of if we had travelled independently (who would you ask why all the buildings and the iconic pillars of buildings have holes in them and who else would show you the proper way to drink from the numerous fountains scattered around the city?)

Following this experience we look forward to visiting Rome again and took no chances - at The Trevi Fountain we threw the requisite coins from our right hands over our left shoulders.

Friendly, flexible, and extremely knowledgeable - Rosella was a perfect guide and a perfect host.
The arrangements were flawless - despite a last minute change due to Pope Francis staging an event at the Vatican - and it all went very smoothly.
We came away feeling that we had really seen and understood the treasures of Rome, as well as feeling that we had been welcomed by a native who shared her passion and love for the city and culture.
They really deliver what they promise - cannot recommend too highly.
