A very nice experience really immersed in history, the guides are first class, you just have to take into account that not all the historical places are close to each other and for what you pay should include transportation (although it specifies that it does not include it) and To go to some places we had to take a taxi paying for it on our own, if I had known I would hire a company that included transportation, if they included it they would have 5 stars.

The advantage of this private tour is that we could never have discovered everything that our tour guides have shown us independently, with a tour in a large group you quickly miss a lot because the information that the guide gives is not clearly placed in the right context . Our guides Thomas in Colosseum and old towns of Rome and Caterina Vatican and museum St Peter basilica and sistine chapel, were really great. Lots of knowledge and nice way of telling. Worth every penny for me and my wife
