We had the absolute best time on this tour! Alex and Michael were the best!!!Alex was extremely knowledgeable about Rome and its history!! He went above and beyond for us in several ways. One thing was that we were late. I got mixed up on the directions and went to the wrong place. In addition to this, it was a Sunday and we KEPT getting our rides canceled by Uber. I was literally in tears and crying because of the circumstances. Any other tour guide would have left without us. But Alex waited for us and then extended the tour for us. Also, I was with my mother, Diana, who is older with mobility problems. He was so polite and patient with her, even helping to assist her to walk at times. We were so incredibly impressed with his kindness and patience. My mother absolutely adored him. The tour itself was fantastic! It was hands down of the funniest things that we did in Rome, My 21 year old daughter and her friend loved it. We wish that we could go back and do it again!!!!

I opted for the night tour with Duccio. He was a real gentleman, with a genyine passion for art and history, which added an extra special element to the tour. If you are looking for a personalised, private tour, or are interested in seeing the City at night without the strain of walking... then this is a must do. Thoroughly enjoyable, and you leave with so many interesting tidbits about Rome.

We are really glad we chose to do this on our last day of three weeks in Rome. Something totally different. Heads up though, don’t expect to see skulls and bones like Paris, these tombs have been looted or the bodies moved so they are empty… still stunning though, we give it a thumbs up!

The Golf Cart Catacombs and Sightseeing tours were well worth the time. Our driver/guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour fascinating. He also possessed a lot of patience as he worked his way through the Rome traffic while making sure we were all safe and comfortable.

Was very enjoyable and Carlos was extremely knowledgeable. Took us all over Rome and saw the high lights. Would suggest doing this 1st and you can then decided if you want to go back.
