Carolina gave a very informative walk, academic and precise. We started on time and covered all the spots without being too rushed. The group is polite and although it is Easter Monday and we were not able to go inside the Pantheon due to Covid restrictions, Carolina made sure our time was well used and took us on a vibrant walk through the Jewish ghetto. Thank you and will definitely recommend to my friends!

Great tour with a lot of ground covered. We were really glad to have booked a guide, instead of going by ourselves. Priscilla is very knowledgeable and has a unique way of telling her stories and historical facts. Her storytelling takes you right back to ancient times. It was fantastic, great sense of humour, we learned and lot and had fun. Definitely recommended!

Vi syntes, at det var rigtig godt! Min bror, mor og jeg havde frygtet at 3,5 time var alt for lidt til at nå alle de ting vi skulle se. Men det var det ikke. Vi så det hele og følte ikke at vi manglede noget. Vi var meget trætte bagefter, men vi gik også derfra med en følelse af, at vi havde lært en masse og fået noget mere kultur ind i os.

The tour was great. Not too long not too short. The bikes and simulation binoculars in great condition. The guide, Gianmarco, did a great tour for us!

This was a great tour. Lots of information and sites to explore.
