We didn't realize we were meeting w/ a guide on a private tour, so we were looking for a group tour guide. It was a bit stressful before we found our guide as we thought perhaps we had been scammed. The meeting point also said to meet at the address 100 but then also to meet by the white door- these two points were on opposite sides of the street. Ultimately, our guide was standing under the white door. Inger, once we found her, was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING... and I would recommend her to everyone with children. She was fantastic and the tour was better than anything we expected. Can't say enough about her and the tour, worth every penny!

We had a wonderful visit to the Vatican with Tomas. He was extremely knowledgeable, joyful and great with the kids. Our visit to the Vatican would not have been the same without his guidance and expertise. We thank you for your hospitality and recommend this tour for families.

It's a really fun way to explore the city. It is therefore best to play this game at the beginning of your city trip.

This was fun experience with my wife and kids to attend. With this game we were like in the movie/book.

This game is a good way to find and visit the best parts of old Rome.
