We sent my parents on this tour. Their very first time in Rome. They totally enjoyed it. Their tour guide spoke perfect english and made the rich history come alive. Well worth the money!

We took the ancient tour of rome in July of this year. It was my husband and two teenage sons. There were just two more people on the tour with us which was great as we could of had up to 12 people so the small group was excellent. We first met with a tour rep but he leaves after our guide Jimmy shows up. Jimmy was an excellent guide. His knowledge and information were excellent. Our two teenage sons were totally immersed in this tour. He answered all our questions without hesitation and made us all feel comfortable. He was patient while we took pictures and made sure we stayed hydrated by stopping at water stations along the way. Our only wait in line was a bit of a wait at the entrance to the forum but after that we had no wait at the Colosseum which had a huge line that day. We totally enjoyed this tour and would not hesitate using Sky tours again.

We were going to be in Rome for part of one day before heading to Civitavecchia for a Mediterranean cruise. Emailed a few tour companies with our wants and needs and Sky Tours Rome was the only company to email me back and promptly at that. David, a walking history book, met us at 7am, as we requested, in front of our hotel and for the next 8 hours our family learned soooooo much. Forum, Colosseum, Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel, Trevi Fountain, a nice lunch in between, along with riding the bus and metro. David's quiet confidence and enthusiasm for Rome made the tour most enjoyable. He returned us back to our hotel at 3pm as requested so that we could catch our transportation to the port. David (from Toronto, Canada) is the mold that tour guides should be cut from. 5 stars all the way!!! Thanks Sky Tours Rome. Ennis Family of Delaware, USA

We went on the Sky Tours Vatican tour in May 2010 and were very pleased with the tour. Going on the tour meant skipping the long line into the museum - you DEFINITELY should go on some tour of the Vatican rather than going alone. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable; I especially enjoyed his insights into the Sistine Chapel. At certain parts he gave us time to wander around and take photos, which is much better than tours that constantly have you on the move. My one complaint is we had a tough time finding the guide before the tour started. The meeting place was changed, which would've been okay except the person from the company who was supposed to be holding up a blue umbrella had it in his bag instead! Apparently they're also in conjunction with "Angel" tours - the guide himself was holding up an umbrella with angels on it. We managed to figure out who he was by asking people standing around in the right spot.

My daughter, 12 year old grandson and I went on a guided tour of the Colosseum and Forum with Sky Tours Rome - and we were so glad we did. I had asked my son and daughter-in-law who had previously been to Rome, but not taken any official tours, where they would recommend we had a guided tour and their immediate answer was the Ancient Rome Tour.

Simon our guide, came from Denmark and it was obvious he was totally committed to his subject, and was a great authority on all the area and gave us an insight to what it must have been like to have lived in the times. His information was both interesting and humorous and we were captivated by both sites.

We were met on time outside the Metro station and the tour took longer than promised, partly because of the enthusiasm of Simon and all the questions we kept asking which were answered knowledgeably by Simon.

I am so pleased we decided to take this tour and would wholeheartedly recommend Sky Tours Rome to everyone, it would have been such a shame to have tried to see the Colosseum and Forum without Simon's expert guidance. Well done!!
