What people are saying about Lazio

We took the tour in Spanish with Roberto. 10/10, it shows that he loves to explain the story and he does it in a very pleasant way, his good humor is very natural and he is always accessible to the doubts that came up in the group, we left with much more information than we expected and much more appreciation for the history of Rome. His Spanish is excellent, and always very clear in his way of speaking. Around listen to other guides in English and believe me they did not come close to the level with which Roberto explained and you were caught with his narration. In his words, wonderful.

First, Roberto, the guide, makes history so great that the 3 or 4 hours fly by, his knowledge is that of a historian, I would only go back to listen to him again, he is a genius and the agency is very good and very organized, highly recommended.

Emilio was a friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. The tour allowed us to skip the queues.

Fantastic! Limi was out guide and she was hilarious yet so knowledgeable on every part of the tour!

Lovely, knowledgeable and passionate tourguide. Nice and complete tour
