“Dark Heart Tour was Awesome!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Massimo was awesome! Hands down the most enlightening and interactive tour my fiancé and I have ever been on. His energy and clear passion for some of the subject matter was what really drove the tour, and kept us intrigued in its entirety, which was longer than 2 hours…but we didn’t mind in the least. I hope we can make it back to Rome for a few of the other tours he provides, and we will be recommending him to everyone that is looking for a good evening of “disturbing” but unique information/locations, when they visit Rome.

“Vatican and Sistine Chapel”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Completely enjoyed our tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel led by our wonder guide Rachel. From the moment we met her we were captivated and interested in the wealth of information she shared. We learned so much in a relatively short time....a little over 3 hours. Wish we would have taken a Dark Rome tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum.

“Colosseum Tour and Vatican/Sistine Chapel Tour”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Both tours done last week with Christian as the guide for the first one and Tiffany for the latter. Both guides were extremely informative but it was the wonderful way that they passed on the huge amount of knowledge which made the subjects come to life. Would definitely recommend this company as everything was carried out in such a professional manner. Special thank you to both of these guides.

“Vatican tour”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

The tour was excellent, our guide Sara N was friendly, knowledgable and informative, she took time to explain things in great detail, showed a great passion for the place and kept us interested for over three hours. It was busy and there is so much to see, having a tour guide made sure you knew what to see and where to go. Highly recommended.

“Colosseum and Vatican”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Both tours were excellent, a must see. Soo much to see and so little time!
Tour guides were caring, and took their time showing and explaining the history.
I would defently go with Dark Rome Tours for future tours!
