We used Rome Private guides in 2016 for all our Italy tours and used them again this year. They do not disappoint, first was the early entrance private tour of the Vatican which was an excellent choice, next we did a full day tour of Pompeii and Amalfi Coast from our hotel in Rome and then we did the private Colosseum with underground tour and roman forum. All guides and drivers were wonderful, you just can't go wrong with RPG. If you want stress free excellence then book with them.

We booked the dungeon tour and had a great time. We got alot of information in a fun way, our guide was interested in including us in the tour, made sure we saw all the main attractions and everything was fine. I am not a big fan of tours, but this one I recomend because you get to go to the dungeons and to tier 3 in the colloseum and you get alot of information about the history in a short time. I recomend this tour, it was a plus for our trip.

Greetings from Romania!

Our travel agent uses this agency for all his clients that go to Italy (not just to Rome).

Every tour they arranged for us in Rome was fabulous, as were the drivers that they also arranged for us (including to/from airport). Matteo was a wonderful guide, he took us on the Vatican Museum and Vatican tour, and we were delighted that he was also our guide for the Archeology Tour a few days later. Both tours included skip the line tickets (which was great since the sites can get very crowded and you don't want to spend your time waiting in line). All their guides speak English fluently and all are licensed.

Ivana and Ellie were very responsive if we had any issues (and there is a 24-hour emergency contact number if needed). They contacted us while in Rome to let us know that the day our Tivoli Day trip had been scheduled for by our travel agent was a day that the Villa D'Este was closed (apparently, the Villa is closed on Mondays), and arranged to switch the cooking day we had scheduled with the Tivoli trip at the last minute without a hitch. On one occasion, we were at the wrong spot to meet our guide, but a phone call quickly took care of that.

Most tours are half a day, with the exception of Tivoli which was a full day. While I am not sure exactly what the tours cost (as everything was arranged through our travel agent), it was the trip of a lifetime for us and a trip that was unforgettable, made better by the knowledgeable tour guides we had! You will not regret booking through them!

Our short time in Rome would have been good but with Sergio From (Tours By Locals) it was amazing. He met us at the train station and our tour began on the train with lots of information about what we would see and do. The ship's tours wouldn't have covered nearly as much (and would have been much more expensive) but Sergio tailored the trip to our needs including purchasing the train,BIRG tickets, skip the line admissions. Loved having our own guide for the 5 of us. Sergio was so personable and conscientious about making our excursion the best it could be - and it was. For anyone doing Rome the first time this is the way to go - and even though we have been there twice before we still loved every minute of the trip.
