Patricia is a very nice guide. Got a nice impression of Rome. Apparently 2 excursions were mixed up. Panoramic tour and classic tour. To stay with the group, we opted for the upgrade of 10.00 pp for the classic tour. Great choice. It is quite a walk as the bus stops at 2 places and then we continue on foot. Tired but satisfied we look back on a beautiful day!

Our guide Alec (not Baldwin!) made the tour fun and learnt lots about the history in a relaxed tour. Would highly recommend. Stunning views of the city. Thank you.

The tour was well organized and we had a very fun and friendly tour guide. It was a nice panoramic drive visiting the most important sights in Rome. Gladly again

Very quick visit in Rome but thanks to the Alesia guide we were able to see the most relevant and with very good explanations.

We learned a lot about roman lasagna history the pope, and empires
