Our tour guide Luca was excellent and kindly offered to do the bilingual tour as the English tour guide didn't turn up (he was only meant to do the Spanish tour). He did an amazing job though explaining everything in English and Spanish - the down side would be that as there were so many of us (about 60) it was hard to hard in the bustling streets of Rome if you weren't near the front. It didn't help that we did it on a Monday when a lot of the museums are shut.

I have no complaints about Luca, he was very knowledgeable about the city and I felt that I really learnt a lot, but wasn't bombarded. It was a great way to see the sights and not get lost. There was plenty of time to take photos as well on the way. Overall a great experience.

The afternoon tour was supposed to be in Spanish and English but the English guide didn't show up. So Luca, taking the 60 or so of us, provided us with a bilingual tour that was really good. He could have cancelled the English tour (as he is the Spanish guide) but rather provided a tour for all do us. Thanks much Luca!

I found Menela to be very professional and knowledgeable. All one would expect on a tour she delivered. I read reviews but went with open mind and glad I did. This is how things are in Rome.
Maybe people who complaint need to get a private tour and pay big €£$.
