First of all, it would help if you read the book, but in the very beginning the tour guides (Massimo and Louisa) gave a brief introduction to the story. If you don't like Dan Brown's work, go on this tour any way. It's not meant to make you love the book - it just takes you to the many breathtaking fascinating places that were used in the book. The guides would tell you the history behind the works of art as opposed (or in addition to) the meaning Dan Brown gives them in his novel.Our tour guide Louisa was a very interesting story teller, very knowledgeable in Rome's history, and Massimo was very funny and beaming with enthusiasm and knowledge. We had the tour on Palm Sunday, so we couldn't get to the St. Peter's square, but Massimo told us many great stories while standing outside the Vatican walls and did an amazing job. The tour uses a bus to cover long distances. In Castel Sant'Angelo you have to go up the steps - make sure you do go to the very top - the view is to die for!Reviewed by: Ilona G, April 2014
Roberto was excellent! Highly recommend this tour!Reviewed by: Dawn R, April 2014
Robert, our guide was so much fun! He was descriptive (he knows everything) and the connection of his tour and the book, he made just really brilliant. His comedic interludes regarding the content of the tour made it like you were in the backyard listening to a story with funny twists! The tour took you to the sites in the book, but you need no knowledge of the book to thoroughly enjoy this tour. The history of the churches....wow....excellent work...City Wonders has been amazing with every single tour I took, I highly recommend using them.Reviewed by: jrgs30, April 2014
Great entertainment and very interesting. Best tour I have ever been onReviewed by: Frances Amanda M, April 2014
This was one of the highlights of our Italian adventure. Everyone on the tour was a Dan Brown book nerd and everyone really knew the story and details. It was a nice small group of +/- 20 split into two groups of ten for most of the day and combined at times. Our two tour guides Louise and Robert complemented each other well and made this tour so much fun. Louise was really into the art and history. Robert was very dramatic and brought out the story. It was so cool to see the real sites discussed in the book and to learn about the parts of the book that were exaggerated or really factual. This was just great fun.Reviewed by: William B, March 2014
