“Two different experiences”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We did two tours with this past June with this group, were very impressed with one, Colosseum but not so impressed with Vatican City tour. The guides were very knowledgeable in both cases. The Vatican City tour had a situation out of the companies control that put a damper on our tour, however we felt the guide did not handle this professionally. Luca our guide for the Colosseum was awesome and I would highly recommend touring with him.

“Outstanding knowledgeable guide”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We did a tour of the Vatican our first day with Overome. We had the best guide, Paula. She had an incredible amount of knowledge and was excited to share that with us. We had a small group of 10 for the tour.
We were so happy and surprised that the next day she was our guide again for the Colosseum. Still just as wonderful and there were only 6 of us (all in our family) on the tour.
Thank you Paula and Overome for making our Rome experience wonderful!.

“Excellent Walking Tour of Vatican”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Joined Overome's Vatican Tour (Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, Piazza S. Pietro, and St. Peter's Basilica). The website said that no. of guest would be limited to 12 per tour. Well, our tour only had 6 guests, no complaint about that.

The tour guide (a lady) was resourceful, spoke very good English and offered excellent service. The tour lasted about 3.5 tours. It was hot, very crowdy, and we felt tired in the last hour, yet our guide was enthusiastic from beginning to the end, entertained us with a lot of history, arts, and religion stories.

By the way, we never feel "rushed" by the guide. She also allowed ample time for the bathroom break.

Yes, you can tour Vatican by yourself and save a few bucks, but you will miss out a lot of details. I would highly recommend Overome to every visitors to Rome.

“Good tour, awesome guide”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Completed the Colosseum and Ancient Rome tour with Federica as our guide. We were late to the meeting point but I received a call from the tour company to confirm our attendance and Federica waited for :10 for us to arrive. It was total of 6 people in the tour so we all had our questions answered. Federica had an awesome app that reconstructed what the Roman Forum would have looked like and you could compare it to the ruins while on the grounds. Definitely recommend this tour company.
