We loved this tour. Tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. My feet hurt from the day of walking but all forgotten because of the tour.
Matteo was a great tour guide. Interesting and informative. Teen daughter enjoyed this tour the best.
It was a good tour, but we were a bit disappointed. May be we had too high expectations. The guide was trying his best to keep us engaged. But the content or the storuea in itselfi were not too horrifying or scary. It was okiesh, not too bad not too good.
Max was a fantastic guide on the night tour of Rome. His stories kept our groups' interest, with the perfect blend of history and mystery. Truly an enjoyable evenin!
Fab tour and a different way to see Rome! Excellent tour guide and good English speaking. Would recommend to anybody looking for 'not your average tour'
Good Fun and a different view of this great city
Very disappointing. A lot of walking for very little stories. The few stories we heard were out of any high school history course. Would avoid this tour.
Our tour guide, Blitch, was fantastic. We can't say enough good things about him. . He was knowledgeable, informative and highly entertaining. The tour was a great introduction to Rome and took us to places we would have never seen. To top it off, Blitch is a native New Yorker who used to live a few block from us! What a small world!
What a great,walking tour during the night time. Our guide,from NY,(can’t recall his name) made the walk, the stories and the history all interesting and kept you engaged Highly recommend!
We loved our tour with Manny! He was funny, told interesting stories and we really enjoyed the evening!
