I'm taking Icon tours in July (after reading many reviews of both on TA) so hopefully they will be good :)
Our children were 16 and 18 when we were there last July, and were not really all that keen to go on tours at first, but the guides were so interesting and amusing that they loved the tours, and we would all have done more if we had time. If you type angeltoursrome into Google, you will find their website.
Hope you enjoy Rome as much as we did.
Which tour did you use - what was the cost? thank you!!
Here's the Angel Tour website:
They charge E25.00 pp for a 3 hour tour and a E15.00 pp for teenagers. Check out the website. This does not include the Vatican admission fee of E13.00 pp. We toured St. Peter's Basilica as part of our tour (that is free so you can also tour that on your own). Angels rented headsets for us (no extra charge) and we got a fantastic private tour and only hearing the guide. She did not rush us from exhibit to exhibit and gave us plenty of time to see the exhibits and take pictures. Your teenagers will like their tour according to what others have posted here.
Angels also do a tour of the Colosseum and I am sure that would be very interesting w/ them as your guides. They only take 8 in each tour group so you can get more out the smaller group. We did a tour of the Colosseum through the Colosseum and there were 40 in our group. We were not happy w/ the large number because we often got in the back of the group and couldn't hear our guide.
However, you can also do a search here to see what others have said about Icon Tours. I am sure they offer a good tour also.
