Definitely a night to remember. As a solo traveller, this kind of tours really makes your vacation a lot more fun! Our guides Chiara and Jen were super chill and talkative throughout the tour. As the awkwardness breaks throughout the group, they did a very well job. You cannot help but find yourself drunk at the very end of the night. The tour includes spritz, cafe coretto, a beer or wine, aperolspritz, and limoncello, so little bit of every Italian alcohol you can try. Friendships were made that night. Worth of money.

Chiara is absolutely amazing!! She is very excited to give everyone the best experience while in Rome and has great recommendations and knowledge of the city. She is very involved and interested in the group! I wish I was able to stay in Rome longer to do another!

After this tour, I think I much prefer walking tours at night. Gentler weather, fewer crowds. Plus these monuments in particular were beautiful at nighttime. Our tour guide Chiara was fantastic, she was very knowledgable and passionate about the history.

Anastasia was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and personable. She answered all our questions and we never felt rushed. Highly recommended!

Laura was our guide and she was amazing , we had a wonderful time , highly recommended
