If all tour guides could be as well informed, professional, and charming as our guide Brandon, organized tours would have a much better reputation amongst those seeking a culturally sensitive experience. Brandon's love and knowledge of the Vatican City and its treasures, coupled with his humour transformed a long list of boring endless facts into an enriching personal experience that gave insight into the workings of the Vatican City. Highly recommended for those seeking more than a 'run of the mill' tour.

Just a few short words in praise of Through Eternity tours. Having booked a surprise weekend in Rome for my wife’s 50th Birthday, we started the first full day with Ian as the guide on the Forum & Colosseum tour which was not only very informative but also fun. The only regret was that we were unable to fit any more tours in due to our schedule. Don’t be put of by the prices, having shopped around beforehand not only are they competitive but also well worth the money.

Fortunately my husband had the foresight to book with a tour and order our Vatican tickets online before our trip in July 2009. It was great to walk past the long snaking line of people and enter the Vatican museums with our group.
Ian is simply amazing - he is very personable, funny, smart, charming, athletic, and extremely knowledgeable. He held the rapt attention of everyone in our group, from ages 11-65, as he was able to expertly weave historical facts with interesting anecdotes. Those who want a dry, boring professor-type to list off the bare facts will definitely want to choose another guide! We highly recommend Ian for your tour guide!

I went to Rome in mid-June and did the Through Eternity tours of The Vatican (8hrs), Rome at Twilight and The Colosseum and Roman Forum. The tours were amazing: great value for money, very very informative, the tour guides (especially Justin Southern) are outstanding!!

The tours do sometimes overrun - you can leave if you want but it just shows how dedicated the guides are that they will stay on and answer as many questions as you can throw at them! They have a real passion for what they do!!

We found the two tours with Thomas not as interesting as they could have been and recommend checking out other tour operators. The sites were interesting but Thomas's commentary did not follow a logical flow. He also provided too many comparisons to modern history which tended to trivialize the Roman history I felt. It was oppressively hot on the days of the tour and Thomas made no attempt to keep the guests out of the sun while discussing certain aspects of the tour something that was easy to do and would have no diminished the views of these beautiful areas.
