Absolutely amazing! The tour guide Georgio was brilliant! He really knew his stuff, 3 hours I think is the perfect amount of time. I’m glad I did the tour. It did end up being 10 people instead of 30 but 10 was a much better number. The tours of 30 people around us looked too chaotic and you wouldn’t get the same personal experience as we did. Would definitely recommend doing this

Amazing !! I was a bit nervous at first but after the demo and the guidance of Marcelo I was super confident at the end of the tour. And what a tour ! We saw everything and had lots of stops for photos, we basically did Rome in 2 hrs without getting sore feet. Would highly recommend this trip 10/10

Excellent tour with Dennis, full of knowledge and very engaging. He answered all questions thrown at him without hesitation. 100% recommend this tour, was the best one we signed up to all holiday and would definitely sign up for another. Thanks Dennis!

Our guide was Laura. She made for such an enjoyable 2,5h. Very knowledgeable about ancient history (not easy with two history majors in the group) and a great storyteller. Don't skip this.

We really enjoyed knowledgeable and pleasent guide of ours - Giorgio
