Very good guided tour in a small group (8 people). Our guide has lived in Rome for 10 years, but was born in Hanover and is therefore a native speaker. You could follow him very well and get many interesting impressions. We were very satisfied and can only recommend the tour!

Our guide, Nadia Bel Bâcha, was very good and explained us very well throughout the visit. The visit must absolutely be made in the morning since it is very hot, so towards the end it is more unpleasant given the great heat. We traveled well in time throughout the visit. I start this activity again.

Professor Jason (or as I think Indiana J.). Of course, be incredibly knowledgeable. He was easy to ask questions to and it is noticeable that he has been there for a long time and knew many and knew where to go just what times to get, for example, some shade.
