We were in Rome for 6 days in November and booked 3 tours with Walks of Italy. They were all terrific. We selected Walks of Italy because of their small group sizes, and we were lucky to have smaller than the maximum capacity in each of our tours!
Our first tour was the Twilight City Stroll with Linnea. It was a great introduction to the city and a lovely way to see the city as the sun was setting. It was really handy for us as we were staying near the Spanish Steps (where the tour departs), and it gave us the opportunity to get our bearings at the beginning of our trip (our first day, in fact). Linnea was so full of energy - her enthusiasm made for a lively tour, especially as we began to fade from jet-lag! We found out at the end of the tour that it was her first offical tour with Walks of Italy - great hire!
Our second tour was the Pristine Sistene with Rosa. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about the information she shared with us. She made sure that we got into the Chapel before any one else - we had at least 20 minutes in the Chapel to ourselves! An amazing and humbling expereince. She's a gem!
The VIP Colosseum tour was our last. Again, we had a very knowledgeable guide in Jowita. She had a great personality and provided loads of information. The tour included Palestine Hill and Forum but the highlight was the Colosseum. On this tour, we were taken to 2 areas that have just been opened to select tour companies - the underground dungeons and the very top tier. These 2 areas really helped us get a sense of the size and scale of the structure and what it must have been like to be a participant and a spectator! An incredible opportuntiy!
We will use Walks of Italy again!
