What a delightful surprise to run into Chad Buckarma from Eddie's Fun at the Pantheon after having first met him at a pizza restaurant a few nights previously. As we were taking in the majesty of the Pantheon, Chad approached us and volunteered to share his considerable knowledge of the site. Chad described architectural details as well as providing insight into the lives of Raphael and others who are buried there. Chad will help you get the most out of your visit to the Pantheon.

We recently visited Rome for 1 1/2 days. While walking near the pantheon we were approached by Christine. She asked if we wanted to take a tour with an English speaking guide. We were hesitant since there are so many scammers at sites in Rome. She told us that we would not have to pay until after the tour was over, and we would not have to pay if we were not satisfied. The guide, Alex, was excellent. He knew his history and he was full of personality. The tour was ongoing, so people were always joining the group or leaving the group when the tour reached the place where they joined it. Alex handled the comings and goings seamlessly.

When we finished the tour we could have easily walked off without paying, as it was on the honor system. We were very satisfied so we found Christine and paid.

Christine told us about a tour of the vatican. We were leary about leaving a deposit with her, but she pulled up trip advisor to show us that the organization was highly rated.

We signed up for a tour of the Vatican for the next day. It was fantastuc. We were met at the designated subway stop. We then walked to the office to pay the balance of our tour. Our guide, Deborah, met us at the office. She is an amazing guide and the tour could not have been better. We were given headsets so that we could always hear Deborah. We never had to wait to go through security or to enter the chapel. Deborah moved us through the crowds and past all of the long lines smoothly. She provided amazing detail and infused her information with humor and stories.

If you plan to visit the vatican....do so with Eddie's. If you speak english and happen to get Deborah, you will not be disappointed.

We booked this tour after friend suggested a few months before we travelled. /the company relied promptly to emails and even contacted me by phone.
On arriving to Civitavecchia - port for Rome - a train strike had caused a cancelation of our much looked forward tour arranged with Eddy's fun tours. We were suitably impressed that eddy tried to reply to our phone messages then sent email stating a full refund was on our way and it did arrive. Not that we had any concerns of that.
This company can be so trusted to do the best for you in anyway needed. We would highly recommend them.

Let Eddie and his crew customize a private tour for you and see EXACTLY what you want with a TON of FUN along the way! We spent the day on a tailor-made, one-of-a-kind experience that took us to the obscure places that no other tour group went to (aqueducts, Appian Way, catacombs). We also dropped in to visit a couple of unscheduled sights after we told Eddie and our guide that we were intrigued by religious "relics". Our guide, Amanda, adjusted the tour to match our personality and pace, making it "FUN" and memorable! What a FANTASTIC day exploring Rome! We impressed Eddie with all that we had already experienced on our trip, but we were equally impressed with what Eddie and his team had planned for us! Thanks, Eddie (and Amanda)!

My husband and I fully expected to use our guide book to tour the Pantheon as it was not included on other tours we had booked. But as we arrived at this fabulous site, we were greeted by a young woman who encouraged us to take at ten euro tour with Amanda of Eddie's Fun tours. Amanda was delightful, knowledgeable, and took an interest in all our questions. We doubled our payment after the tour, totally in thanks for all we had learned.
