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!

This tour was a very unique experience , super fun. You get to drive through the city and see it from a different angle . All the guides, Roberto and his son were very nice, ice cream was a nice addition. The tour operator was able to accommodate us even though we lost our time due to flight delay. 100% would recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for a thrilling experience.
