Owner description: At Epic Rome Tours we like to do things a little differently. What put our clients at the centre of the tour and then we transport them to the head of days of the Roman Empire and the great Renaissance depending on which tour you do with us. As long as you have an open mind we will do the rest. Rome is a magical place but it can be made more magical by the way it is interpreted to you.

Jimmy brings a special sauce to Roman history and understands that most of us want to hear the human stories not the dry repetitions of dates and battles. This is a relaxed, fun, informative and entertaining tour.

For our first night we had booked the bella roma tour all confirmed even have the email. Well and as you can guess they stood us up!! We were ment to meet at 6 at the bottom of the spanish steps so we were there quater to looking for someone with a yellow umbrella and nothing!! Waited for nearly an hour, tried to ring many times that night and in the morning and they never answered the phone. We would never reccommend this tour operator.

We booked Epic Rome Tours about 24 hours before our tour and it was terrific. It was relatively inexpensive and Jimmy, our tour guide, did an amazing job. He was knowledgeable, informative and easy-going. It was nice to have a relaxing tour that felt like five minutes but was really two hours and saw some major sites (Pantheon, Piazza Nuova, etc). This tour was definitely one of our favorites while in Rome.

We were very excited to visit Rome, and Epic Rome Tours helped to make our trip even more special. We booked three tours with them, and are so happy that we did. We started out with the Bella Roma Tour on our first evening, we took the Ancient Roman Tour the next morning, and the tour of the Vatican in the afternoon. We are so thrilled that we did all 3 of these tours. Jimmy was our guide for the first 2 tours, he was excellent. We were a party of 6 (ranging in age from 12 - 70), and we all learned so much. Jimmy was full of knowledge and very informative, he was passionate about his knowledge, and shared his knowledge in a fun way. We all learned so much, and had so much fun in doing it, we feel as though we met a new friend in Jimmy. We went on our tour of the Vatican with Mia. We were a bit sad to leave Jimmy for the afternoon tour, but we were equally blown away by Mia. She was amazing too. She shared her knowledge of the Vatican in such a passionate manner. I am really glad that we booked these tours. I feel as though we fully experienced so much more in Rome and the Vatican because of these tours, and because of Jimmy and Mia. I would also like to thank Shay who helped me with my bookings, Shay was extremely helpful, and professional and answered all of my questions promptly.

We chose Jimmy for our tour after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. Jimmy was knowledgeable but was able to present the information in a lively and enjoyable manner. On the day of our tour, Jimmy was unwell but still turned up on time and provided an excellent tour although we were the only people on it! Thanks for a great morning Jimmy!
