Excellent Tour in Rome

Our excellent guide pulled up in a comfortable van and drove us around Rome showing us points of interest. The Catacombs tour was very interesting! Then we were taken to an amazing overlook of Rome. Then we walked into a beautiful Church with orange candles. Our guide then took us to various sights, it was dark and everything looked magical. Our guide gave us great advice and restaurant suggestions. I highly recommend Viator, for tours in Italy!!

Excellent door to door tour with friendly professionals and super clean cars.

This was a GREAT overall experience, We timed it after a day of tours and a 2nd half day exploring. The tour guide arrived early and was super friendly. It was a great change of pace to have a VIP car service drive you around show and talk to sites that hadn’t been seen yet. The catacombs are a must for anyone interested in history or religious aspects. The property the catacombs sit on are truly amazing beautiful gardens and worth seeing alone. The stop on the Apian way is unique, again cool and visually appealing. Final destination St. Paul’s Basilicca outside Vatican City walls had little to no crowds and was stunning. To be shuffled around in class and comfort to take in the experience was an excellent break and enjoyable experience well worth the money.

Great driver named Constantine! very informative. The English guide at the Catacombs spoke too softly, was difficult to hear. She walked a bit fast so the last part of our group didn't get to hear and see all the points of interest.

Incredible tour

Patrick, our guide picked us up on time and was very knowledgeable about the entirety of Rome not just that relating to our specific tour. The Catacombs de Callisto were amazing. Just to think that crypts for over 500,000 were hand dug 2000 years ago in four levels over 50' deep. We also got to see parts of the old city wall along with St. Paul's Cathedral. I would highly recommend this tour and our guide Patrick

Constantine was amazing. He was on time and very easy to speak with and brought us to catacombs Appain way and then circus maximus and other attractions we wanted to see on the way back to our hotel. Pick up and drop off at the hotel was fantastic. Also the car for the 7 of us was very comfortable.

Visit to the Catacombs of Rome

This was an excellent tour. It far exceeded our expectations. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and accommodating. Note worthy - We were a group of 17 persons and Viator provided return transportation from the hotel to the the sites. The shuttle service done Patrick and Mirko was par excellent! They themselves were superior tour guides whilst providing explanations for every question asked. I recommend that you use this cab service as we very happy with the service provided. Thank you Viator! Thank you Patrick Mirko!

They’re empty caverns and once you see one, you see them all. We were expecting more of it! The tour guide was good and knowledgeable! The weather once you go down the catacombs was a real refreshing break from the heat and humidity in Rome. Lourdes Lourdes

Disappointed with Annoying Guide

First of all, the Catacombs tour wasn't a private tour, they just brought you to a group tour that is run through the site which would've been fine if they just said that's what it was and didn't make it sound like it was a private tour. The guide didn't actually know much about anything. Whenever I asked him what things were he just read me whatever signs were around and he said it was his first time ever going in the Catacombs. He was extremely annoying and seemed to only want to take pictures and was mad at me if I didn't want a picture or wanted to actually know what something was before taking a picture. Super annoying and he wouldn't respect me when I said no. Absolutely not worth the money.

Dear Guest, we are really sorry about the lack of professionalism of the guide during your visit of the Catacombs. Our tour is a private one because your chauffeur picked you up and drove along the Appian Way to the Catacombs, and return. The visit of the Catacombs doesn't depend on us but we are going to refer your review to better the service. Regards

BEST experience we had in Italy!

We reserved this trip before arriving in Italy and visited several sights while in the country. Without a doubt, this was our best experience in Rome. The chauffeur, Constantin, was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. His driving was smooth among the chaotic roadways of Rome and he escorted us to some amazing places. In addition to this, he spoke very clear and concise English, keeping our trip an educational one. The only setback that we experienced was the lack of remains in the catacombs. As odd as that may sound, the photographs on your website advertising this tour show the remains of several monks but for the purpose of preservation, those remains are no longer in these catacombs. It was very misleading and a bit frustrating, but the behavior and efforts of Constantin compensated for this experience as he made it fun regardless. Thank you, Constantin, for a memorable trip through ancient Rome.

Thank you for your review and your appreciation for Constantin. The itinerary suggested during the visit of the catacombs and the existent remains are beyond our control. We hope to see you soon again as our guests
