This was our favorite tour of the few that we had been on! Our tour guide, Alessandra, was amazing, accommodating, and really knew the city and how to think on her feet! The tour had an unexpected closure due to a strike that was happening that day and she was able to whip something up to show us instead! She took us around different parts of Rome and had SO MUCH information to tell us! The tour was only supposed to last 3 hours and because she wanted us to have the full Rome experience she let whoever wanted to continue the tour stick around for an extra 2-3 hours! She was amazing and I highly recommend this company and these tours!
