Dark Heart of Rome: Facts, Legends, and Mystery Tour
- Duration: 1.5 hours
Our family of 5 with children ages 15, 12 and 10 really enjoyed the golf cart tour around the city. Eugene did a great job interacting with the kids and asking them questions. He also tailored the tour to our interests. My wife and I have toured the city in one day on a previous tour; I can say the golf cart is an ideal way to see the city allowing flexibility to go anywhere. One of my favorites of the 3.5 hours was visiting a park above the city with a view of all of Rome.
My 16-year-old daughter attended the class. At the end she expressed some annoyance with the fact that she was the only teenager in the group. There are only two options to attend (under 14 or 15 and above). She did not really find her place among the group and felt quite left out during the talk around the table. Alcohol consumption is also not appropriate at this age. I suggest better matching of content and party or individuation of instruction when needed.
REALLY interesting activity. I believe the only TRUE way to really know about a City history. Not very deep cause only lasts for 90 minutes but much more interesting, exciting and rewarding than the traditional tourist tours. Look for similar activities as this one and do as many as possible once is the only true way to really know about a City such as Rome.
Alethea was an amazing tour guide!!! She kept it fun, and very educational, throughout our stroll through the Roman streets. She had knowledge about locations that I had seen on previous tours that the other guides didn't offer. If you're lucky enough to have her, you're in for a treat! 10/10 would do another tour with her any day!
Eugene was awesome!! the tour was great!! He was super friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable. Even the kids loved him.. Also by the end of our tour he picked a restaurant for us and made the reservation. definitely worth the money.
