A must see!
Such a great tour anytime of the year but the week before Lent makes it even more special! Thomas was wonderful! He has a tremendous amount of knowledge of the Bible, Catholicism and Rome! A must see when in Rome!

Wonderful tour . Learned so much.
Sep 2019
Our tour guide Thomas was excellent. We saw several beautiful churches and many religious relics. Just a warning, there is a lot of walking so wear comfy shoes.. Our tour lasted about 3 1/2 to 4 hrs and we ended far from where we began. Make sure you have taxi fare to get back to your hotel.

Knowledgeable guide, excellent tour
Oct 2019
I was seeking a tour of some of the most important churches in Rome from an authentically Catholic perspective, and that is precisely what I found with the Passion of Christ Tour from Eternal City Tours. I was blown away by Tom’s knowledge of Church history, Scripture, and theology, and his ability to integrate all of these topics into a cohesive, linear story, which unfolded as he took our small group around to the various sites of the tour. Everything was integrated beautifully. It was a large amount to fit into a 3 hour block, so we did not get to spend a great deal of time at any one site, but that was balanced by the fact that we were able to see so many amazing relics, examples of artwork, and pieces of Church history. Our group was small, with only three of us, and it was more like a private tour than a group tour. If you are interested in seeing as many of the highlights of Catholicism in Rome as possible while also understanding why they are important, then I highly recommend this tour!

Highly recommend this! Tom is a superb guide, his vast knowledge and Catholic outlook knits the sites and relics into a hugely informative and fascinating web of history and faith. Time to pray and immerse yourself in all you encounter and hear. Cannot overstate how much we appreciated both the sites and Tom's commentary. The tour alone worth the entire cost of travel from SK, Canada!

Fantastic! Such a fascinating tour
We had the privilege of having James as our tour guide for this fascinating walking tour. His love for history and religion is truly evident in his talks. My wife and I learned so much through the 6 stops we made. We got to see many relics from the life of Jesus as well as some fantastic architecture and sculptures. This was one of my favorite tours of our trip- I was so happy we did it. In total the tour last about 3 1/2-4 hours but it’s worth every minute.

Wonderful tour with knowledgeable guide
We took this tour with James as our guide. It was just four of us so we enjoyed having a small group and not needing to use headphones. James answered all of our questions and gave us insights into many details about the churches we visited that we wouldn't have thought to ask about. Fantastic tour and would highly recommend to others who enjoy Catholic history in particular.

Spiritually inspiring Tour
Oct 2018 • Couples
My husband and I are cradle Catholics. We have taken our faith for granted and do not know very much about the history and so much more that Tom our guide brought to our attention as we went through the beautiful and intricate details of the Basilica paintings. Our last stop in the Basilica of the Holy Cross was an emotional one for me as we stopped at the Shroud of Turin where Tom pointed out the images of Jesus Christ's head, arms and legs visible through the blood stained cloth that was used to wrap His body in the tomb. Through it was only a printed image, I saw more than an imagery but the reality of Jesus Christ having gone through so much bodily torture to redeem us. I felt unworthy at that point and my emotions just got the better of me. Tom is very knowledgeable and very experienced. He made sure we got the the best view at the right time that made our tour a very pleasant experience. Tom is one of the partners of Eternal City, so be sure to ask for him when you book this tour! This is an tour every Catholic must book and book it through Eternal City Tour!

Wonderful tour of churches through Rome
Sep 2018 • Couples
Our family ended up having a private tour, with Blitch, since another family was unable to make it. He did a great job of giving us information and also giving us private time to pray and take in the sights. Blitch is a very passionate and informed guide (congrats on getting your degree!). We would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about churches in Rome!
