ILLEGALLY RIPPED OFF BY "THE ROMAN GUY"
Apr 2020
At the time I booked my tour the cancellation policy was a full refund would be issued with 7 days advanced notice. I gave notice 21 days before the scheduled tour. Now they refuse to issue a refund. They illegally changed the terms of agreement long after the agreement was entered into. They should be shut down!

Hi there! Could you please reach out to us directly, with your name and booking reference? We'd like to help you get this resolved. We are so sorry to be letting our customers down in this situation. The pandemic has hit our sector hard and fast. We would also like to apologize for the timeline inconsistencies regarding the resolution of your cancelation request. We have severely under-estimated the length of time that we would be hindered by this pandemic. We deserve the 1-star review in this situation. We regret that we were not able to show you why our tours are consistently rated 5-Stars. We understand you are unhappy with credits but we are still hoping to make it up to you. We are great at tours and terrible at pandemics.

Received Our Full Refund
May 2020
I must praise The Tour Guy for our full refund. I had my doubts and shared these with their staff. I did not think I was going to receive a refund after waiting 60 plus days. The full refund, in the form of a check, arrived in the mail today. Well done to The Tour Guy. For those still waiting, I recommend being patient, strange times we are experiencing. The company is still in business and is honoring their obligations

Amazing tour guide and tour
Jan 2020
My family and I travelled to Rome from Australia for the last part of our Europe holiday. After travelling to Iceland in poor weather conditions and failing to see the northern lights, it's suffice to say that our spirits were low, which is why this tour was such a pleasant turnaround.
Upon arrival, we were met by our tour guide for the day. Her name was Raf and she was very enthusiastic and happy to greet us. Despite the fact that we came to Italy during Winter where crowds are supposedly small, we were still intimidated by the number of people in attendance. Thankfully, the tour allowed us to surpass the lines almost entirely. As we walked around, Raf was able to provide a running commentary about the history of the Colosseum and answer any questions we had. It was clear that she had a profound knowledge of both the Colosseum and all of Rome. She had also prepared a compilation of images on her iPad that enabled us to envisage what specific areas of the Colosseum would have looked like in the past and what activities it would have been used for, which was very helpful and insightful. I would not hesitate to say that Raf was the primary reason why the day was so enjoyable and that if the other tour guides within The Roman Guy are at all similar to her, then it is definitely worth your time and money.

Wonderful tour of the Colosseum & Neighboring Sites
Nov 2019
It was just the three of us and one other American for the Colosseum portion and then just our family and Loretta (our guide) for the remainder of the tour on Thanksgiving morning. Loretta was very informative, friendly, and engaging. Learned so much about the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Got in quickly with little to no wait (was an 8:30 tour). We even saw Nero, the black cat who "owns" the Colosseum. My teenage daughter rated the Forum as one of her top 3 of our vacation. Would definitely recommend the Roman Guy and Loretta for this tour!

Excellent Tour Guide - Damiano!
Despite the heat, we truly enjoyed our Tour with Damiano! He was extremely knowledgeable and it made us feel like we were in a history book! I would recommend getting those little head-phone/ear phones just because it can be difficult to hear in the crowds...and maybe a shot or two of Limoncello for all of the walking :). We really enjoyed it!! Kim & Debra

Ciao Kim & Debra, Thanks for leaving a review, and mentioning our lovely Damiano. We’re so glad you had a good experience. Next time you’re here, try our Trastevere Food Tour – plenty of limoncello shots and much more are waiting for your testing. Come back soon. Marco

An excellent and informative tour
Sep 2019
At night the Colosseum is just spectacular. Our tour guide was extremely informative all throughout our walk around the Roman forum and down towards the Colosseum. Once inside, there were very little crowds and the informative tour was incredible. Our only disappointment is that we thought the inside centre of the Colosseum would be more lit up as it was quite dark inside the centre. Other areas underground and the exterior are well lit and looks spectacular.
