What people are saying about Saint Peter's Square

amazing experience! I went in late november and and there was a huge storm when i was meant to go and the tour company graciously helped me rebook for a clearer day. my driver was Giovanni and he was great! so many great stories and fun facts and was sooooo nice to drop me off at my hotel after.

This was one of the best experiences ever. Not our first time in Rome so it was perfect to see some of the less popular sights. Our driver went out of his way to book and drop us off at a place for aperitif afterwards. Super fun. Super informative. Highly recommend!!!

It was fun way to see the Rome. Most of the places that we visited with this tour were places that we couldn’t go by ourselves. Tour guide was really nice and knowledgeable. You can pick your drop off location.

absolutely brilliant would highly recommend the driver was fantastic we learned so much would do again if we come back 5*

We had a blast! Thank you so much for showing us around Rome. Amazing!
