I have used the company once before 5 years ago when my husband and I used them for a private tour of the Vatican. This time I was coming with my brother and my 3 kids. We decided on taking the Early Morning Vatican Small group tour. I highly recommend them! The main reason being you do not have to wait on line for tickets and that line was well over 2 hours long at 7am! Our guide was super informative and showed us so many things. He made sure to engage the kids in all that he was talking about. It was a memorable experience and I would use them again!

We took our 17 year old son and we're impressed with the 3 tours with WIR and their highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides. It was the trip of a lifetime because of the outstanding tourguides. We can't wait to get back.

We used WIR for a food tasting tour in Trastevere and also for our tour to the Vatican. Both tours were EXCELLENT. Our tour guides were locals and very familiar with their subject matter - our food tour guide, Sara, led us through the winding roads of Trastevere and filled our bellies with delicious food and gelato. She gave us a history lesson about some of the locations where we stopped to eat, and seemed to know almost everyone she passed in the street. She was extremely easy going and comfortable to be around. She really made us feel like family. Highly recommend her!

Our Vatican tour guide was SO knowledgeable about everything! Our tour lasted roughly 3 hours, I believe, and she did not stop talking once! Not only was she knowledgeable, but she cared so much about the subject matter. She was really passionate about the Vatican history and was such a gem to have around as we made our way through so many halls full of history. We were blown away by her knowledge and delivery. Excellent job!

Did the colosseum and Vatican tours with Walks. Super-knowledgeable tour guides. We had Christina both days and she was great! Flavian did the underground portion of the colosseum tour and was fantastic. Private tours are pricey, but nice. Gave us time to do a little shopping at the Vatican and always stopped if there was something more we wanted to see.

if you really want to get a great Rome experience you must look into Walks Inside Rome as your prepare your itinerary. We were in Rome for only a week and wanted to make the most of it. I researched a few tour options and selected Walks Inside Rome. My requirements were English speaking tours, and less than 10 to 12 person to get a more personalized experience. I recommend getting the early AM tours given gets hot in the late spring and summer. The Colosseum Forum bundled as over the top and exceed our expectations. Our Tour guide Teo was engaging, funny and extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the Colosseum and Form. His graphic aids were very impressive. He took his time and we really got our monies worth. If you book this tour be sure to try and get Teo. You will not be dissapointed.
Our second booked Tour was the early morning Vatican and St. Peters tour. Our tour was well managed and delivered. Our guide Fabio was an expert in the Art, and history of the entire complex. Great visual aids were a big help.
If you go to Rome you really need to consider Walks inside Rome. You will not have to wait in line very long and get VIP treatment. There is not other tour company that can stand up to their attention to detail , reservation communications and execution. Our Coordinator Sarah was especially attentive to details.
