We booked the guide just the evening before and we got contacted by the agency that is was hard to find a guide so soon. Therefor we rescheduled the guide to another time. The agency really showed flexibility. Great thanks! Our guide Georgio was amazing. We were the only one on the tour so it was a really nice private experience.

Fantastic Tour with a fantastic Guide. Veronica knew just everything, her german is very good. I was the only client on the tour, that made it very special. All the things you always wanted to know about the Pantheon and the area that sorrounds it, you get to know on this tour. Thank you so much.

Excellent Guide

The church was unexpectedly closed so the guide (Matteo) took us to another one nearby which was magnificent. Matteo was young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were the only people on this tour which meant it was totally personalised.

Outstanding! Tour guide incredibly knowledgable and very family friendly! Highly recommend this tour, you won’t regret it

Very informative, and the guide, I forgot his name (Josh or Georges) was fantastic. What a great historian!
