Without a tour guide, we would’ve been in an out within 20 minutes. However, the tour guide explained the significance and historical importance of this site. She was informative, insightful and made the learning of history fun. A definite five star recommendation.

Very knowledgeable guide and great experience. We were upgraded to a two hours tour that we thought we might leave half way but we stayed to the end because the guide was so interesting and we learnt so much

The architecture, statues and scenery are truly breathtaking, the tour was made even more memorable due to Alicia’s storytelling and knowledge of the site, would highly recommend.

One of our top experiences in rome for sure! Our tour guide Alicia was incredibly knowledgeable and an exceptional storyteller. I wish I could have had her for every tour!

Our guide Alec (not Baldwin!) made the tour fun and learnt lots about the history in a relaxed tour. Would highly recommend. Stunning views of the city. Thank you.
