We've been with Eternal City Tours now on our 3rd tour in 3 years.
The tours - specifically with Paul - are the most inspiring we ever had in any part of the world. He brings ancient and medieval papal Rome to life with amazing intensity and color. Thanks once more, Paul!
Ling & Georg, Germany (KJV)
Thanks to our tour guide, Paul; my husband and I had a wonderful learning experience touring the Roman Forum and the Vatican City Museums. Paul is extremely knowledgeable on the fascinating history of Ancient Rome and the early Renaissance religion which made the tour that much more interesting and exciting. I highly recommend Paul and Eternal City Tours to those seeking an expert tour guide. He is also very sociable and takes time to answer any questions you have.
Rita, New Mexico (NIV)
The tour of the Forum was truly an enriching experience due to the expertise and knowledge of our guide. The guided tour was personalised and inclusive of all. The guide engaged participants encouraging inquiry and acknowledging thoughts and reflections. We walked with the Etruscans and Romans, glimpsed another time and place being transported through history by the considered and thoughtful presentation by Paul. This tour met the needs of lovers of history and academics alike.
