wow! We had a stop over in rome for the afternoon, and Ambra from Great Tours of Rome took us around for four hours on a walking tour. It was amazing, we loved it, and Ambra was very knowledgeable but she also made it lot of fun. I am saving up to go back to Rome, as i loved the city, and will definetely go back to Ambra. it was just the two of us ( private tour but very reasonable) we are senior citizen of sorts . The service from booking to meeting us and making it a memorable day was excellent! Daniela Leigh South Africa

Amazing, knowledgable, taylored to your desires and speed, would never do this without a guide like Rosella, and the early Cistine chapel visit is a must if you are at all interested in seeing the complete picture

I had a challenge on my hands. A two couple 3 night pre-cruise stay in Rome grew to 9 couples which made customizing our time a challenge. Mario(the owner) supplied us with great guides for our Vatican & forum tours but the best was yet to come. I wanted to duplicate the "Home Food" program that allows you to dine in the home of a local for $50 Euro's for Food, Wine & tip. The problem is there is an 8 person limit. Mario found a chef who prepared a tasting menu for 18 people at his home. It ended up being the highlight of our 3 days in Rome. MaRIO IS THE BEST

These tours were fantastic! Our tour guides, Marina and Marta, were both so great and tailored the tours to our needs. We toured the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill in one tour and the Vatican and Sistine Chapel in the second tour. They were both amazing tours, although the Colosseum was our favorite! The tour guides showed up on time and met us exactly where we were told to meet. Prior to the tour, not only did we get the location on the map, but there was a picture of the outside of where we were to meet which was extremely helpful! It was also very helpful that we paid all costs beforehand. Therefore, we didn't have to worry about money or waiting in the horribly long lines... we just walked straight in! The tour guides shared the history of the places and would stop to tell us stories. It was great having private tour guides just for my husband and I. We saw various groups for tours holding walkie talkies and the guide holding a flag... we were so happy we did not skimp on the price and choose a group tour. The private tour is the way to go! I would highly recommend Great Tours of Rome and both Marta and Marina! Thank you for helping to make our trip to Rome an unforgettable experience!!

We were met by our charming and very well informed guide, Alessandra. She guided us through the museums so we saw the Sistine Chapel in relative peace. Her enthusiasm for her subject was catching. We spent a very enjoyable morning with her. Incidentally, all the booking / confirmation stuff was managed flawlessly by Mario.
