booking was very easy. Meeting was held exactly at the Spanish Steps. There were only two of us and the tour was still taken. very friendly, informative, presented with a lot of detailed knowledge. The 2.5 hours flew by. It was a pleasure for us and also a great birthday present for my wife. we had already booked a guided tour of the Vatican Museums on Tuesday. Small group, also kept very personal. We will be happy to do something with "get your tours" again.

We did this city tour with Romina and there were only three of us. Romina, put a lot of effort into us and we learned a lot about the history of Rome, we were out for 4 hours and really saw a lot. We can only recommend this city tour, but above all we recommend Romina. Many Thanks
