Very good, nice visit, long enough to see everything and not enough to get bored, very pleasant staff, guided tour with notes of humor ... great activity to do with the family, makes it possible to see all the monuments and to choose more easily visits during short stays

To be mentioned positively - the upper deck is currently closed & it is heated (pleasant with the currently low temperatures). Windows were very clean so that we could see everything well.

As in other European metropolises, a very meaningful and informative way to get to know a city and to quickly get an overview

Really fun way to see Rome! Our guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable of all things Rome. Highly recommend this tour.!

Good day, this attraction is great, we really enjoyed it in those three days and the staff was great.
