I am extremely disappointed regarding the Rome Walking Tour...As instructed, my family and I showed up on time for the tour at the Piazza Venezia. Unfortunately, we could not find the tour guide nor the walking group (even though we looked everywhere). As you probably know, that

Responded 28 Dec 2019
We did receive your phone call yesterday and we did explain you in great detail where to go, we did talk for about 15 minutes but still you were on the wrong place. We did also offer you to come the day after. There is not much we can do about it because other people found it without any problem. For all the people reading this here are the details (which we send to every person who makes the booking) See for yourself if it is clear but we think more clear then this we can not be: Q: Where is the meeting point? A: If you are in piazza Venezia and looking around, you will see two important buildings. One is very big and white, the so-called Vittorio Emmanuelle. This is NOT the building where we meet. Look for another building which has a reddish colour with one tower upon the side. The building is called ''Palazzo Venezia''. There is an balcony in the middle of the building also with a big door underneath. (the only door in the middle), next to the big door you will find our guide, holding a sign with ‘’Free Tour Rome’’ written on it. If you click on the following link, you can see the exact meeting point here:

Claudia was our guide. Her English was good, but her tour was fantastic. So much history and inside information. We loved the tour and highly recommend. I learned so much and now can really appreciate these wonderful Roman landmarks. Bravo!

We thought this would be a good tour for our first day to get our bearings. Our guide was hard to understand and gave quite a lot of detail about the few places we stopped. Would have preferred to have had more sites pointed out with fewer details. But this may be hard to do

When we arrived at the piazza Venezia, it was teeming with thousands of people demonstrating for climate change at the bottom of the Victor Emmanuel monument. I called the emergency phone number and was given the exact meeting place. When we arrived, we were the only two people

Visited Rome with Pedro with just a few number of people. Very interesting and not boring at all. Pedro was very nice and we loved the tour absolutely.
