Excellent experience
, Mar 2020
Having been to Rome before and touring some of the same basilicas, it was a great experience and extremely cost effective to do it this way. Our driver guide Matteo spoke perfect English and tailored the tour to our interest. And communication with the office through Erika couldn’t have been better. I would definitely use this company again, a lovely experience.

Amazing day touring some of Rome's most spectacular and historic churches. Additionally, a visit to the catacombs also included which was also incredible. Very much enjoyed our time with our skilled driver, Damiano and the background knowledge he offered not only on the basilicas but also on a great place for lunch. Highly recommend this tour if you're interested in diving a bit more deeply into many of the churches not on everyone's to-do list, particularly if you want to visit all of the Seven Pilgrimage Churches made famous by St. Philip Neri.
Best way t see the Christian Sites
, Sep 2018
Davidd was our driver and tour guide he was prompt and very professional during the entire tour. This was our second time to visit Rome, our last visit was limited and we were not able to visit the sites we wanted to. This is the best way to get around Rome. Having your own driver and vehicle makes it easy to get to the sites, and did not have to worry about finding a parking space or long walks. We were dropped off right at the entrance to most sites. We set the time frame for visits at each sites, that way we could spend as much time as we wanted to really explore the sites and get a good understanding about the Rich History at each site. Our driver Davidd also recommended a local place for lunch, and when we arrived we had a table waiting for us. The food and service was excellent. We have taken many tours mostly in groups, but having your own private driver and vehicle is the best way to see the sites you want to see on your schedule. I would highly recommend this tour. .

This was an awesome tour! Would suggest to anyone. We were able to go where we wanted and customize as we went. The first thing in the morning our driver, Alessandro, asked what we wanted out of the tour. We were able to visit many places and he even had us at St Peters Square at noon, we were able to here the church bells ring. Beautiful! My son wanted pizza so Alessandro took us to a place he likes to go, not a tourist trap. It was wonderful. We ended the tour at the place I asked, the Pantheon! He dropped us back off at our hotel. This was our last day of a 3 week European trip, what a wonderful end!

Our driver was Damiano. He took us all over Rome to the Christian sites we wanted to see. He told us a little about each one and then parked us as close as possible. He gave us a certain amount of time to visit each location before returning to him. He took us to a great local place for lunch. We really enjoyed this tour. We spent about 6 hours on the tour, but could easily have spent 8 and taken longer in each church.

We went on a Sunday and because it was a private tour we were able to hit things at the perfect time, meaning no lines anywhere at all. The catacombs were inspiring and the churches marvelous. Our tour guide was Max. He was very informative and talked to us like friends. We had a stop at St. Peter's on the list but because the Pope was speaking we told him we would much rather see the Pantheon as it was our last day in Rome and we had yet to see it. Though it wasn't on the list he took us there and gave us tons of information. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone
