Our guide is extremely talented and passionate, and gave us a comprehensive tour. We had a great experience and our 12 and 14 year year olds were quizzing us after this tour put nicely in a historical perspective. We pack our trips with tours and this one is a special one. Thanks for being generous with your time.

Our guide tour was Allek. The guide tour was one of the best we done. Allek showed and explained us the high light and much beyond. We got to discover the historical background of Rome and specifically st. Angelo Cassell (the latest name....). His English language was perfect, with no accent, and it was easy to understand (compering to other guide tour that we took).

The pass was easy to purchase as was the app and instructions from the app to get to the meeting point where the GYG rep was waiting. Our guide around the site was fantastic, spoke great English and was witty too, which was appreciated when you have been walking round Rome all day. The duration was spot on and price fair. Would use GYG again and recommend to others.
