This was such a great tour, we did this on our first evening in Rome and I would definitely recommend doing the same. Rome can be overwhelming, with so much to do and see, this tour helped us get our bearings before we really began our exploring. We really saw a good portion of the city in a short amount of time, we took mental notes on where we wanted to come back to eat, drink or just walk around some more. Our tour guide was great and really knew a lot of fun not well known interesting facts about the city and the history. This is a lot of walking but trust me, when I say it’s worth it (just be sure to wear comfortable shoes and clothing).

I loved this tour! Even though Rome has a big nightlife, the sights had way less people around and were really cool to see some lit up. The stop for gelato was fantastic and the guide was knowledgeable and had a great personality!

Andrada was an excellent tour guide. Super knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was interesting and entertaining. Would recommend for an intro to Rome experience.

Ms Dana was very detailed in explaining the various sights ; really enjoyed the walk at a comfortable pace.

Very knowledgeable guide, I learned much about the history of Rome and saw places I'd never seen before.
