Will visit rome again & also book this tour again! 1000 out of 10 if we would have to rate it! Best Regards, Nathalie & Christian

We liked the in-depth knowledge of our guide. He complemented facts and dates with images which helped us imagine the historic buildings as they would have looked when built. We learned a lot of quirky facts which we will always remember and this made the sites and structures more memorable.

What I've enjoyed the most was the time witb the other people at lunch...great time. But in general, all was fantastic.

Our guide Eddy was great! So nice, so many things shared. It was the best tour we ever had. Congratulations Eddy!
