This was a great tour - very informational and a good way to get a view of the city and some of the primary monuments while walking through the city in an afternoon. (We then spent another day at the Colosseum and one day at the Vatican).
The tour guide was extremely knowledgable about all the sites. It's a great way to take in a multitude of sites in a short time.
our guides although completely different were both knowledgeable and thorough , i enjoyed the Ancient Rome walk better and my wife enjoyed the Best of Rome better, maybe not doing both in one day would be better, but our time in Rome was limited
This was our first tour in Rome and we loved our guide Ilaria. She was really knowledgeable and fun! I would recommend her and this tour! Lots of walking
