Nicola was a very knowledgeable guide with great communication skills and as sense of humour. He gave us an excellent summary of the development of the Roman Forum, the imperial fora and palaces over time[ no mean feat ! ] which really helped my understanding of what I was looking at. The early entry to the Pantheon was a highlight. I really enjoyed the tour.Found it very informative and varied. Would thoroughly recommend it.

Nicola was a very knowledgeable guide with great communication skills and a sense of humour. He managed to summarise the Roman forum and the development of the later imperial fora and palaces really well( no mean feat) which helped us understand a lot more what we were looking at. Entry to the Pantheon early in the day was a highlight. A memorable tour. Would definitely recommend.

Our tour guide was Anna, she was while versed and very passionate about the sites. Anna was very educated and very understandably with her answers, we had a police road block that we could not enter to go to the pizza place for the tour she quickly decided to change it to a different pizza place on our tour, she was very knowledgeable of the area and didn't skip a beat on the tour. She was so gracious thru out the tour. I feel we got more information about all the sites then most tour guides would of known. She even made sure all of us site seekers made it back to our destinations with directions because she was over all very knowledgeable of the area. Anna diffently has a passion and love for what she does. We are very impressed with the quality of our head sets. I would diffently suggest if you have never been to Rome book the Walks Tours and hopefully your lucky enough to get Anna like we where. Wear comfy shoes and bring an empty water bottle for the watering laces thru out your tour because the water is safe to drink. And please don't forget to tip your tour guide.
