As it turns out I was the only one on the tour that day but it worked out to my advantage as I had very in-depth experience. The guide was highly knowledgeable as well as funny and entertaining. I got to learn so much about the history of Rome and specifically the Jewish experience there which was very enlightening. Thank you for a great tour!

Our guide was very informative and responded to our questions and the needs of our group. I was a bit surprised that the entire tour didn't focus on the Jewish ghetto, but really enjoyed the overall history tour that we were given of the area.
