The advantage of this private tour is that we could never have discovered everything that our tour guides have shown us independently, with a tour in a large group you quickly miss a lot because the information that the guide gives is not clearly placed in the right context. Our guides Thomas in Colosseum and old towns of Rome and Caterina Vatican and museum St Peter basilica and sistine chapel, were really great. Lots of knowledge and nice way of telling. Worth every penny for me and my wife

With the support of our local guide we were able to dodge the crowds and really enjoy the experience all locations had to offer. We spent a total of about 5-10 minutes picking up the audioguide and all else was zero waiting. Amazing experience, for sure will want to repeat next time.

Katharina, our guide was great. Full of enthusiasm and very likeable, she brought us closer to the history of Rome. You could tell her passion for history. She has tremendous knowledge and was able to answer any question. We recommend!

Knowledgeable and personable guides, everything worked smoothly. Demanding (a lot of walking) but absolutely recommendable!

The guide was very nice and explained everything very well. Everything problem-free. I can only recommend
