What people are saying about Lazio

Having the right expectations is important...

Is this worth it? Yes. Is it going to blow your mind? Yes. So do I recommend it overall? Yes, for sure. However, it’s just important that you know this tour is like lightning speed version overall. You definitely save precious time with the skip the line options but know you will still have to wait at various times for various things. Also, you will have a chunk of time where you’ll stand outside and they’ll just talk at you describing certain things because you can’t talk in the Sistine chapel. There is SO much to see at the Vatican museums and you’ll probably see about 1/3 of it. Then at the end you get dropped off in St Peters Basilica and find your own way from there, which is great if you have time to wander around. The tour guide was very helpful and deepened our appreciate for the art and the experience, so I recommend a tour guide for sure. Especially if you can afford a private tour guide! So, definitely a good experience, just have the proper expectations going into it!

Interesting tour and good value for money

This was probably the best value tour we took out of 11 over a recent Med cruise. Our guide (Andrea Gringana ?spelling) was enthusiastic, friendly and informative but not "in your face". Everything was included in the price - travel, coffee, lunch, entrance tickets. We decided that a switch-over day in Civitavecchia was probably not long enough to go to Rome for a sensible period of time so we stayed locally. We'd never heard of Tarquinia past or present but it's well worth a visit. The only thing to note is that the ancient Etruscan necropolis consists of rooms underground, each reached by a steep staircase and therefore this tour is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. The size of the port of Civitavecchia and the rules associated with it mean that the guide cannot meet you inside the port gates so you need to take the shuttle bus to the entrance and meet them at the drop-off point immediately outside.

Chaos getting tickets near the arch. Running late again.

Chaos getting tickets near arch. Not girls on site fault though. Needs more organising with a different system. People getting frustrated and angry. Late again as other tour by 25 minutes. Why get everyone to turn up 25 early if you’re going to be 25 minutes late. 50 minutes wasted. First guide, a man, around forum and hill wasn’t great. Even though a small group could not hear him. Seemed to be just filling time talking about marble to much. Would but recommend this part of tour ..... I would recommend the Colosseum tour which was great and all credit to the guide, a young woman who was fantastic. Fun to be with, funny and very knowledgeable.

Both guides were really knowledgable and friendly

We had a fantastic tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman forum. Both Julio and Keith were extremely knowledgable, friendly and fun. They kept the group moving and the time flew by. It was easy to find the start of the tour and the organising team were well prepared and very organised. One word of advice is to take some food with you if you are going over lunchtime as there is nowhere to buy food on or near the sites.

The tour was made by the excellence of our guide, Lindy.

Thanks Lindy, the best guide we have had by far. Not only did you count numbers and check we were all there, you rotated us around so all could look at the objects and take pics. You had a sense of humour, excellent English and a good knowledge of your subject. Superb job. Thanks a million.
