Rome by Night Walking Tour
Reviewed by: Sharron H, United Kingdom, August 2014
We did the Rome by night walking tour on our last night and I thought by then we would be revisiting everywhere we'd already been and hearing everything we'd already heard from other tours. I was very wrong! Our tour guide, Ciara, was excellent, providing not only the historical information to illuminate the sights we were seeing, but also including little things we might not have noticed by ourselves - such as marks on the walls around the city showing various flood levels prior to flood defences being put in at the river. The route was very well designed so that it didn't feel like we were walking miles between sights, and it was a great idea to finish at the Colosseum, as this is so impressive lit up at night (even partially obscured by scaffolding!)
This was the second 'by night' tour we did on our trip, the first being by bus, and I have to say the walking tour was by far the best. We may not have been able to visit as many places on foot, but we got a much better view of them, seeing things you just can't see from a tour bus.
The pace was also nicely balanced, so we didn't feel like we were being rushed everywhere and really had time to take in what we were seeing all around us, and we were in a small group (12 people) so felt as if we were really getting the personal tour. Ciara injected a lot of humour into her commentary and I really felt like I came away knowing a lot more about the city.

2 thumbs up.. We really enjoyed Rome by night with Dario.. He recommended a restaurant for us to have dinner. It was the best, my husband can't stop talking about the food there and comparing to all the restaurants we'd visited. Like Dario said, if there's almost all local. Then you are in the right place to eat.

Tiara, our guide, was really fabulous and made this tour to the best part of our stay in Rome!

This tour was great. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable and it was a great thing to do at night.

This was mine and my sisters first visit to Rome, Our other sister had visited Rome once before but had never done the tour. We found our guide Felix very knowledgeable and was more than happy to answer any questions to posed to him. His passion towards his country was very infective. Even when the tour had finished he was happy to hear our thoughts on Rome and even suggested a few places to go that was not on the Tourist track. I plan to return to Rome in 2 years time and will definitely use this site again if your guides are as good a Felix. I am only sorry that I did not leave him a tip. Can you please forward this onto the company that showed us around. I believe that credit is due to him.
