Gigi was amazing. He was a wealth of knowledge and answered all questions in a way that could be understood. Laid out the tour where all the information became a full circle to better understand Rome and why and how the roman empire rose and collapsed. Excellent tour and would highly recommend. Your company is very lucky to have someone like Gigi.

Excellent tour, English speaking guide. She had great knowledge of the Coliseum and Roman history. Highly recommend.

Whilst in Rome for 9 days, I booked three separate tours with Walks and every tour was exceptional. Clear and easy booking process. Very clear instructions on meeting your guide and the expectations of the day. Very good tour group size. Whilst in Rome we saw huge tour groups (sometimes 40 people in a group), but these groups are small and feel more personal. Good quality headsets for listening to the guide. But without doubt, it was the excellent quality of the tour guides who made the experience. Full of knowledge, often relating the information to storytelling, bringing the subjects alive. You felt like you were being greeted by an old friend. There is plenty of time for pictures and questions. The guide ensured everyone was included in the dialogue throughout. The full access onto the arena floor was worth the extra price to be standing in the shadows of the gladiators. I would highly recommend Walks and will be booking with them again in the near future. Thank you to the team at Walks for providing such a wonderful experience of Rome. Dr Julie Riggs

A nice high level overview of the history, legends, myths and people who lived and frequented the Colloseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Paolo was my tour guide and was pleasant, not rushed and made sure to squeeze us into the best viewing spots. I did not hesitate booking another tour with this company.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions about the area. Wonderful experience!

We had an amazing time. Francesca was a great guide and had a lot of good information and energy. One of our top experiences in Rome!

We were lucky to go with a very knowledgeable and caring guide Angela. To visit the Colosseo one would need a guide to restore the original architecture within history context as the current remains doesn’t tell much. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a tour around the Ancient Roma city center area.

Andreas was a fantastic guide! Highly knowledgeable, witty and entertaining. He led us through the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum with fascinating stories. We’d follow him anywhere.

Sara was an excellent tour guide. Would highly recommend this tour.

Michael was an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. It doesn't get better than having an art historian who is native to Italy as your guide to Ancient Rome. Michael found ways to deliver the information in an amusing way while treating the history with respect. His tour was a highlight of our trip!
