Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history and archeology of Rome. I would highly recommend this tour! Moreover, towards the end of the tour the pouring rain started. So our guide , as a professional, continued to tell us the tales and stories (since we couldn’t go outside). That was one of the MOST interesting tours we have ever had.

Jaber was the best guide! Took care of our group making sure we found amazing fresh cold water stations, spots in the shade to stand while he spoke and taught us all so much with a positive attitude, I didn’t even mind the hot weather. Would recommend to anyone!

We were very happy with this tour. I believe our Tour Guide was called Katja (not sure about the exact spelling). She was the BEST and had loads of knowledge to share. Would definitely recommend!

The tour was rich in information. Lasted longer than it should, just because of guides who like to tell you everything. I can totally recommend this tour.

Very nice tour, good and passionate guides, make you imagine to really live the experience of the ancient Romans.
