“Extended Vatican tour”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Francesca was our guide for this tour, she had an amazing amount of knowledge, and shared so much with the group. She would have to be one of the best guides I've ever had the pleasure or touring with.
The tour was thorough, and took us to so many places within the Vatican, the views from the spiral staircase were breathtaking, and everyone on the tour had a great time.

“Well worth booking this tour”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Just returned from a three day city break to Rome. Prior to going I booked on line the full day Rome experience walking tour (cost for two £135). The tour consisted of a morning walking tour 10 am - 1pm of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, then 3.30pm - 6pm walking tour of the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona and the Campo de fiori. I am so glad I booked this tour for the following reasons; firstly you can see all these places for yourself, however to really appreciate the history you do need someone with knowledge and experience to bring them to life for you, the tour guides were excellent, very good English speaking, happy to answer questions, very patient and genuinely love the city. The pick up points for the tour were easy to find, the walks were well paced and leisurely, we really enjoyed the experience. I wish I had booked more tours such as the Vatican tour or evening walks. If we are lucky enough to return to Rome I would definitely use this company again.
