Rome: James Bond Spectre Tour by Minivan

1. Rome: James Bond Spectre Tour by Minivan

In “Spectre,” James Bond drives his Aston Martin at a terrifying speed through the narrow, ancient streets of Rome. He’s being hunted down by SPECTRE, the sinister criminal organization, and its mysterious member Franz Oberhauser (played by Christoph Waltz). The Eternal City is the setting for about 20 film scenes. Step onto the open-air set and relive many of these key moments. Take on the role of “Bond... James Bond” or femme fatale Lucia Sciarra and follow in their footsteps.   Your guides would love to put you behind the wheel of an Aston Martin but that’s a little out of the budget. Instead, you’ll slide into a discreet, luxurious and comfortable alternative: a sleek black minivan. And since no one besides Bond should tackle Roman traffic, you’ll have a driver. This will allow you to soak up all the 007 sites and fully enjoy the tour. You will be taken behind the scenes, revealing how the real Rome can differ from the movie-magic version. During this evening tour, experience the energy, excitement and spectacular beauty of the Italian capital after dark. And maybe even a Bond-worthy adrenaline rush. You will be 007 or a Bond girl until the bitter end. To conclude, you’ll toast the evening adventures with a "shaken not stirred” martini, a genuine Italian cocktail. This “Spectre” tour led by a stellar guide has all the elements of the luxurious world of James Bond.

Great tour with a high entertainment factor - highly recommended!

I gave this tour to my husband for his big birthday and hit the bull's eye. As an absolute James Bond fan, he knows Specter very well. Ewout Kieckens offered us a great city tour and showed us many locations, even if they can only be seen for seconds in the film. On his tablet, he was able to make a comparison between the location in reality and the fiction in the film. In his friendly Dutch manner, he also gave us many other useful tips for our stay in Rome. Our driver Massimo was available at every stop at the right moment to collect us again and was not only courteous, perfectly familiar with the area, but obviously also well connected. Highly recommended for amateur and professional Bond fans!

We would like to thank Ewald from the bottom of our hearts, who made the tour unforgettable for us! We had a lot of fun together, were in corners of Rome that we would otherwise never have discovered and the time flew by. At the end we were given a city map on which the route of the tour was drawn again - a great reminder of the beautiful evening and at the same time practical for the rest of the vacation days. Thank you, Ewald and greetings from Berlin / Rostock :)

James, Monneypenny, Franz M & C, everyone was there

The tour started in a great setting at Casel St. Angeli, a small replica of the film was brought to mind by means of excerpts, with the original soundtrack we visited the various locations throughout the city. Not only impressive how the film and its scenes are created in Rome, the many interesting background information is also a must for every 007 fan. Congratulations to our tour guide, great job. TOP Ewout!
