There were only 4 of us on this tour and it was great. Marco the guide was friendly and knowledgeable and went at a pace that was acceptable to all four of us. They asked me to change the day of the tour as they thought that it would be very busy on the day i originally booked. This was really good advice and both venues were relatively quiet.
Two adults had to sit in the front seat of the van with a console so there was no leg room. The other passengers had comfortable seating in the passenger seats in the van. We did not get a discount for having to be crammed in. The tour should provide comfortable seating for all!
Worth the money. The guide was great and her English very good. The sites were no where near as populated as Rome.
Our guide (Mauro - I hope I spelled that correctly) was excellent. He was very passionate and a wealth of knowledge. Hadrian’s Villa was a wonderful look back into how life was almost 2000 years ago. The ruins are in good condition for their age. Villa d’Este was also great. It shows the oppulance of the Renaissance era. The gardens are fantastic. I would recommend this tour and the size of the group (6 of us) meant very personalised attention.
Wonderful tours. Great guides!!!!
The tour of Hadrian's Villa was excellent as was the enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. The tour of the Villa d'Este did not take place because the site was closed. We were disappointed. We were given to understand that this was not an unusual event and wonder why we were not given the option of changeing the date in advance rather than being confronted on the day. The guide assured us that a refund would be made. Nothing happened so I had to chase it myself directly with Viator. It refunded what I consider a miserly amount considering that the Villa d'Este was a substantial proportion of the trip. I wonder if they would have refunded anything at all if I had not struggled through their system.
Very informative, however when she wasnt providing tour information guide seemed to be on her mobile phone more than was necessary in my opinion.
If you are a history or architectural buff, this is an absolute must. As close to Ephesus as you can get without going to Turkey. Wear your walking shoes and bring your own water
Loved the tour and our guide was really interesting. Hadn't realised Hadrains villa was so large and the gardens and fountains were amazing at the Villa d'Este. The only issue was that we had booked for a morning tour and it got changed the day before to an afternoon. This did end up better for us as we missed the worst of the days heat however it was lucky that we had not planned anything for the afternoon.
