We took a private 3 hour Historic Center Tour of Rome, with Eternal Tours. Our guide, Manuela, was really terrific!!! Not only was she thoroughly knowledgeable about everything we saw, but she was quite friendly and very accommodating as to what we wanted to see. Manuela was able to squeeze in so much in just three hours! We were very pleased with the cost of the tour - it was much lower than we had anticipated for a private tour - and we were also quite impressed with the communications we received from Pete, the gentleman who arranged the tour for us. It was definitely worth every single penny!!! There is really no better way to see Rome than with a guide who was able to explain so much about the history of what it was we were looking at. We should have booked ALL of our tours with Eternal Tours! We took two other tours while we were in Rome with a company called Viator and they were AWFUL!!! We were VERY disappointed with Viator for the over-priced, under-informative tour of the Vatican, and the over-priced bus trip tour of Tuscany. I wish we knew about Eternal Tours before we ever took those other two tours. What a waste of money they were. Live and learn. Grazie, Manuela! And thank you, Pete... we were very happy with your service and will definitely recommend you to friends and family headed to Rome!

This was my wife's first trip overseas and she was very nervous about the trip. Eternaltroursrome was nothing short of spectacular. Due to bad weather in Atlanta our bags did not make it to Rome until the next day. My wife was very upset, but we met Josie our guide, that afternoon and she turned what was starting out as a disaster to one of the best days of our lives. Josie was so nice, knowledgeable and flexible. Peter had left a message at our hotel with before we even arrived in Rome and was always responsive to our needs. We were so impressed we were recommending ETR to people we met on the ship, but were going to stay in Rome after we returned from the cruise. Do yourself a favor whether you are spending all your time in Rome our maybe cruising out of there, as we did. DO NOT book with the cruise ship are the other services that will herd you around like cattle. The cost for ETR is no more than those other guys and you will get the personnel service you need. We booked tours at our ports of call through the ship and my wife and I were very disappointed after our experience with Josie. I highly recommend eternaltoursrome.net and welcome your emails to tuttm@northwood.edu.

Despite living in Rome for 3 years I never visited the Vatican Museums so on a recent return trip my husband and I booked a 3 hour tour with Eternal Tours. Our lovely British guide Josie met us at our hotel to escort us to the Vatican. Once inside, and as talking and presentations are not allowed in the Sistine Chapel, Josie began with a great introduction to Michelangelo’s masterpiece and how it evolved, as we sat on the sunny terrace. Josie’s background in History of Art and Education really showed in her interesting and informative presentation. It was really rewarding to be shown the most important and significant items in the museum by someone who clearly knows her stuff, so much better than a guide book. We had particularly requested to see the Raphael rooms so Josie duly gave us extra time there (not to be missed!) pointing out details we would have otherwise not noticed. With Josie’s info fresh in our heads we reached the Sistine Chapel which was as spectacular as we’d hoped! We finished with time in St Peter’s basilica and all too soon had to say good bye to lovely Josie, the three hours had flown by. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about the most important pieces of this overwhelmingly vast museum from a very professional and friendly guide.
