    Fabio was excellent guide. They pick you from your hotel with minivans and they assembly the group at piazza della repubblica. The only negative is that the excursion ends there and you have to go on your own back to your hotel. My hotel was just 500m away. The weather was perfect otherwise i guess it becomes muddy at Hadrian's villa.

    This is a must do adventure. First, our guide Inger was exceptional. I had studied much prior and Inger provided so many additional insights. She kept the group informed on what we would be experiencing and maintained a good pace for everyone. Her structure of the tour also allowed you to explore on your own and arranged clear meeting points.

Superb day with Mara. A very pleasant guide for a visit in French. Visit of Hadrian's Villa and Villa Este of very high quality, clear and fun explanations, time flies and Mara's explanations are of great help and allow us to immerse ourselves in the heart of vestiges breathtaking. Private or small group visit, which is a real plus for a visit like this one. Lunch (included in the visit) at noon takes place in a typical and good quality restaurant. Mara manages to share her passion and bring the legend to life. The tour is carefully orchestrated and very well managed. A great day! well done

EXCELLENT GUIDE, Beautiful country area 40 minutes from Rome.

We had a small group tour of 5 people, which was FABULOUS! Our tour guide, Alfredo, was so knowledgeable and patient. This is a gorgeous area to tour and a welcomed break from the busyness of Rome. We would highly recommend booking with this company, as they keep their groups small. Some other companies will book 50 people on this same tour.

An all-round successful event!

We really enjoyed the day tour. Lunch was very good too. The tour guide carried out the tour very competently and interestingly.
