    Raf was an amazing guide. She was very knowledgeable and she spoke clear enough for us to understand. The extra tidbits of information that she gave us were a plus (the secrets, gossips and feuds). The outside of the Pantheon is included in the tour, however, the inside isn't. Raf was willing to take us inside depending on the length of the line. If I could give her more stars I would. Definitely worth it!

This was an enjoyable tour, and it was helpful having a guide to see some of the main things of Rome like the Pantheon, Spanish steps and Piazza Navona, as well as peeking inside some magnificent churches. It was a lot of fun, I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone still unsure about using a guide.
