As a christian I was amazed by this tour. Beside all the magnificent buildings and heritage Rome has, tour is definitely worth taking. Easygoing tour by Roberto will give you another perspective on the city, without feeling of tiredness, even after more than 4 hours with adequate breaks. Thank you, I strongly recommend this tour.

Very informative tour which shows you besides the well-known basilicas also many less known churches and attractions. Big thanks to our kind guide Roberto whose knowledge is simply impressive. We learnt a lot about the history of the churches and their meaning for Christianity.
Total recommendation!

We booked this tour at last minutes. The tour was on time and it was only for 2 of us, lasted about 3-4 hours. Tour guide had great knowledge about the city. He spoke multiple languages ( German, Spanish, English). Too bad I could not remember his name (I normally do). We visited many important churches and past many landmarks.
We love Rome more because of these small tours with locals. They are compassionate about the city and subject matters in general.

I've been on many tours in Rome before but this was a truly one-of-a-kind experience. First of all, I am a born Catholic and had NO idea what the Holy Doors even were. Roberto was a wealth of knowledge on that subject and more. Every site he took us to - most of which I would never have known about or found myself - was well thought out and all part of an interesting story.
The name of this company really lives up to its name. They will really introduce you to the many unknown treasures in Rome! This tour gives you a unique perspective on Rome and really takes you off the beaten path. Really cool experience and I recommend to anyone visiting Rome.
