What people are saying about Spanish Steps

Cuma our tour guide and Miko our driver did am outstanding job. They were so knowledgeable and we saw places we would never have known about but for this tour. They were so enthusiastic about their jobs. Made the trip one of the most enjoyable things we have done in Rome. Took the night tour and it’s a great way to cool off after walking around the city in the summer.

Lovely experience, guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She took us down routes we wouldn’t walk and pointed out the history and culture surrounding us everywhere. She walked at a steady pace and allowed us to rest as needed. We did the tour on our first evening in Rome and I’m glad we did as it helped us in exploring the following days as we had reference points.

David and Emily were very friendly and knowledgeable and showed us parts of Rome we had not seen in other trips. They avoided the touristy stuff and gave us a lot of information. We would highly recommend a Vespa tour and would do it again!

Guide was awesome and very informative. Saw a lot of the major tourist attractions and a fair amount of streets and sites that were off the beaten path. Good overview of Roma

Excellent tour, Max was a very good guide, in which we visited the hidden places of Rome, that only a local can know, I loved everything!
