If you’re in Italy in short time or just one great Knowledgeable Guided experience I highly recommend this. Our experience was excellent. Hands-down my favorite experience in Eataly including the best gelato place that I was introduced to and also all the great restaurants.

If you don’t want to visit Rome in deph but still want to get the most out of it, this is the tour for you. You drove right at the manument or site with the car, the driver shows you and tells you the story about it, if you go inside the building(for ex colisseum), you don’t waste time waiting, everything is arranged so you don’t wait in line. Special request were granted(pizza and gelatto) in the best places. Really, the best tour you can get if you don’t like lines and wait time
