We enjoyed the food and walking tour of Rome very much! Great way to see the streets of Rome, tasty food and wine, and a very knowledgeable guide! We We enjoyed the food and walking tour of Rome very much! Great way to see the streets of Rome, tasty food and wine, and a very knowledgeable guide! We went on the Coliseum and Underground Dungeons tour as well. The next morning we had booked the express Vatican tour. We loved it but our guide was a bit hard to understand. We then did a private all-day shore excursion in Livorno that included a day trip to Pisa and Florence. The driver was on time, professional, very knowledgeable, and took us to see some lovely sights! The guide in Florence was amazing! Overall, we really enjoyed all the tours we did with the Roman Guy and would recommend them to everyone!..more
