I went to Rome with my 7 year old daughter. I booked the Colosseum, Forum and Pantheon tour with ice cream for the two of us. Our guide was extremely helpful in involving my daughter on a treasure hunt in search of architectural details in the monuments. For a dad (who didn't know Rome so much) the presence of the guide facilitated a splendid moment of sharing with his daughter in the discovery of the monuments.

We booked this tour on the first evening of our vacation, were picked up by our guide at the hotel and then took a taxi to the start of the tour. Being guided through the city in the evening by a Roman woman in German was a great and recommendable experience. We already got a good spatial feeling for the city and received one or the other tip along the way.

Luisa was an outstanding host and tour guide. Her knowledge was immense and we felt very welcomed as we toured the most interesting and fascinating historical and artistically influenced piazzas, structures and buildings of 16th and 17th century Rome and such wonderful historical stories at each site. This tour is an absolute must for any visitor!

A competent and linguistically well-versed tour guide introduced us to the glittering sights and secrets of the eternal city. A "must" when visiting Rome.

Our tour guide Francesco was fantastic - very knowledgeable and personable. Worked well with both children and adults, very fun and we learned so very much!
