We had an amazing experience at the pizza and gelato making class! The teacher was so enthusiastic and passionate about cooking and he was also a lot of fun. I don’t even like to cook and I had a great time. The food was delicious and it was so special that we helped to make it. I highly recommend this tour

Terrific customer service and terrific tours. I corresponded with WIR for several months ahead of a March 2024 trip to Rome, discussing options for various tours, and they were always responsive, polite, informative, flexible, and helpful. Ultimately we booked two tours: a private early morning tour for 8 persons for the Vatican museums and St. Peter's (3 hours, kid-friendly) and a private 4 person Caravaggio painting workshop. Both were excellent. The tour guide for the Vatican museums and St. Peters spoke excellent English and was magnificent with the kids, helping to guide us through an incredibly crowded, hectic museum environment while also introducing, explaining, and contextualizing the museum and key pieces. She had just the right touch in knowing how much information the kids could absorb, and she was terrific in St. Peter's, as well. Later, our tour guide for the Caravaggio workshop was so lovely, connecting wonderfully with the whole family. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

I would 100% recommend WIR to anyone else visiting Rome, either for the first time or for a repeat visit.

The best about this tour is pick up and drop at your Hotel. I expected a Golf Car right, well it was not and the vehicle was so high I struggled to get in and out. There were 3 of us so small yes. Pizza was good but took too long to get in a restaurant. Guide drove all over Vatican City then we had gelato (good gelato) in a small shop some where, then at last what I really wanted to see was Colosseum at night. Worth the photo. Be prepared to go with the flow on Get Your Guide Tours, not what you read. The guide was very pleasant and did his best to please. But all took too long started at sunset to 11pm.

We four are experienced travelers. We all agreed that Cristina is the best guide we have ever had! Her expertise and command of the information were so much appreciated. She is impressive! We spent two mornings with her--one at the Colosseum (where two of us had visited several times in the past) and the other at the Vatican--again not for the first time for some us us. Cristina made us see the sites through fresh eyes. She did not waste a moment on extraneous or frivolous conversation. Grazie mille to Cristina!

We did a full day private tour (4 of us). We were picked up at our hotel right on time and started at the Coliseum with the underground included. When we were dropped off at the Coliseum we were greeted by our tour guide, Marina. She was amazing! She led us around the underground, explaining all the areas and giving us details of the life of a gladiator. We then toured the upper portion of the Coliseum. She knew all the places to take great photos where there weren’t a lot of people. We then went to the Forum and learned even more about life in Ancient Rome. She then took us to a wonderful little restaurant for lunch, off the beaten path so not many tourists. Our driver then picked us up and took us to the Vatican where we toured the museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basillica. Again Marina was amazing! Unbeknownst to the rest of us, one of the people in our group tried to stump her with questions and she always knew the answer. At the end of the day the driver picked us up and took us back to the hotel. Amazing day!!

We did two private tours with Walks Inside Rome - the Colosseum/Forum and the Vatican/Sistine Chapel and both were first rate. The guides - Domenico in the Forum and Sara at the Vatican - were polite, professional and knowledgeable and tailored a multi-lingual/multi-generational tour that satisfied everyone's ability and energy level. Both guides were also recognized by the local security professionals at each site allowing us to expedite our entrances/transit through security. We couldn't have been happier with the way each tour transpired. In addition, there was excellent communication with the WIR staff via WhatsApp - from reservation to tour completion - that walked us through reserving the appropriate tours, touching base several days prior to the tour kickoff, and being available and responsive as we connected with the guides at each site. Hands down the WIR tours were the highlight of our trip.

Me, a friend and our two 10 year old boys had an amazing time recreating the gladiator battles with our tour guide, Vincenzo. He was so knowledgeable and kept the kids excited the entire time. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the underground, but it was still great. We did a more expensive private tour, and didn't have to wait in any lines.

Our experience with Walk Inside Rome is excellent! We are very satisfied with all of our activities that WIR arranged. If it wasn't the heat, my kids and families would have enjoyed it even more.

First on Day 1, I enjoy how our guide Gioia did the Treasure Hunt with the kids that drew their attention at first, but since the walking and the heat distracted them, they lose interest soon. However, I personally enjoyed how she explained things in the museum.

Day 2, the kids loved the cooking class with chef Sara. It was a lot of hands on experience to prepare an authentic Italian meal themselves. Other than the price tag, we absolutely enjoyed the cooking class.

Day 3, the underground experience at the Colosseum was great. Glad that we were able to explore the behind the scene there and learned more stories about how the Roman's operated the fights back then. Our guide Cristina was great about explaining all the details to us and she brought the books to explain to the kids which my son really engaged. I super appreciated the fact that Cristina is a teacher and know how to talk to kids.

All the skip lines to the sites really worth it. Can't imagine if we needed to wait for hours to get inside under this heat.

We had a phenomenal tour of the Vatican, exclusive access to the Sistine Chapel, and then of the Colosseum and Forum with Maria Daga. We have visited the Sistine Chapel a few times before, including another early access, and this visit with our family was really outstanding thanks to Maria and Irina. They were extremely knowledgeable, and Maria in particular was engaging, flexible, and knowledgeable enough to adjust her content to each person in our small group. We had great access, weren’t rushed, and plenty of time to take in the best parts of the Sistine Chapel and Vatican. Maria was a real treasure….I’d ask for her and would highly recommend!!
