First tour we looked at was booked solid. So we were referred to this one- the after hours tour. Glad we got it. After hours started at 3:45 pm. We went to the Capuchin (bone) chapel first and then the catacombs. Capuchin chapel was interesting but the catacombs were awe

This was my second trip to Rome, and since I had seen the heavy-hitters the last time, I wanted to do something a little different this time. I am very happy I booked this tour. Our guide Leonardo was the perfect balance of informative and entertaining.

I really enjoyed this tour. There wasn’t really time to do any exploring so if this is important to you may not enjoy this tour. I found it perfect. Andrea was our tour guide and he is amazing. You can really see how passionate he is about history.

Hello omyakinfeet, Thank you for your feedback from your recent Catacombs and Bone Chapel tour, we really value your thoughts on the experience. It is disappointing to hear that this tour was not what you were hoping for, as we genuinely want all of our guests to leave us feeling inspired and enthused about the sites visited. We love for our guests to feel that they have had a terrific time with incredible, knowledgeable guides and that we have taken care of the logistics of getting between A to B in a new city. We apologize that this was not how you felt after your time walking with us in the crypts and catacombs of Rome. We honestly hope that the other tours that you took with us were more to your liking and that you will give us another chance to wow you in the future! Warm regards, The Walks Team
