5 Star Rating: Excellent Free City Tour Rome - "well done!"

Review by Robert, UK - December 02, 2015

We did book this tour way in advance and we were not sure what to expect. It turned out to be a brilliant choice. I don't see why I need to book a paid tour if I can get it for tips only, such a great concept. Our guide was very friendly, bringing us around places we normally wouldn't have gone to. All with great explanations about what to do and where to go. The group was not big and it was easy to understand the guide. His English was excellent (I can not say the same for the Vatican tour we did yesterday with a different company). At the end of the tour we got great recommendations about where to eat and what more to see. We (family with 2 teenagers) would recommend to do the free tours. Thank you.

Review by Ben, USA - December 02, 2015

Very nice tour around the Colosseum area. Was absolutely a good choice to book the tour ahead because we wanted to join the Vatican night tour but it was fully booked. However, when we wrote an email we got an response straight away and they found us a way to join in. Absolutely great customer service and great guides. Thank you again for making the Rome trip even better and we will be back one day.

We really had a lovely time on our walk through the center of Rome. The guide was nice and told many interesting stories. He showed us around the Forum and the Colosseum. When we visited the Colosseum after, everything made a lot more sense. It was such a nice walk, thank you!

The best time to visit Rome is in Spring and Autumn. Even so, even in summer it is a lovely city. It can get quite hot though. But whatever the weather you encounter, Rome always has something to offer. If it rains, there are many museums. If it's too hot during the day in August, everybody is on the streets at night, having a good time. January is probably the coldest month, but that also means a lot less tourists.
You already know many of the highlights of Rome. They are world famous. From Saint Peter's to the Vatican Museums and from the Colosseum to Palatine Hill, Rome's touristic sites are unforgettable. You would need months to visit all the sites and museums in the city.
