"Hands Down the Best Tour Operator in Rome"
November 04, 2017
My wife and I took in 5 tours with Eternal City tours. They were all outstanding. I can say (after having spoken to several family and friends who've visited Rome) that we had the best experience. This is due to the tour guides' main occupation which is usually an academic pursuit in theology, arts, history, and philosophy. Their in-depth knowledge combined with professionalism and excellent training makes their tours more than worth while. I can say a lot of good things but I'll just say this - after spending around $1100 on the tours we still took the last tour guide out for lunch as well as bought them a couple of bottles of wine - we unhesitatingly recommend Eternal City Tours.
But really it just boils down to a couple of points. The reality is that most of the tour operators in Rome have an intense dislike of Christianity ... while that's their right they allow this to skew the quality of their tours. After making the effort to visit Rome would you want to pay a tour operator to be on the receiving end of their gripes? If not choose Eternal City Tours!

I took many tours with this company as I enjoy the in-depth knowledge of history, theology, archeology -- all of what Rome truly is -- and none of the tours let me down. Highest recommendation.
"Sts. Peter & Paul Tour"

Chose this tour to get a deeper knowledge of Peter and Paul in Rome. James did not disappoint. History, art, architecture and a view of the neighborhoods we walked through from site to site. Highly recommend this tour especially if you are looking to go to St Paul's outside the Walls.

"The Best Tour Guide, Bar None"
June 30, 2017
Our family was very lucky to have booked an ancient Rome tour through Eternal city, and had James as our tour guide. I've booked a lot of tours throughout our travelling across South America and Central America, Asia and Europe. Never have we come across a tour guide as professional and as knowledgeable as James. He is a living history book of Rome and Italy. His knowledge is vast and at the same time, James kept his stories interesting and funny for my 17 y/o, my 13 y/o and my 21 y/o nephew. My kids are still talking and laughing at the stories that James told us during our tour. I wished that we had retained Eternal City and James for my Vatocan tour the previous day. I highly recommend James and Eternal City tour. please feel free to ask me any questions regarding James or Eternal City tour.

"Must Join Tour Operator!"
May 29, 2017
We spent a week in Rome with 3 different tour operators/companies and must say that Eternal City Tours is THE BEST. We wanted to join The Passion of Christ tour but there was no tour available on the date we wanted to do it on Viator so we contacted Eternal City directly and they had arranged a private tour for us on our selected date for the same price. We also joined The St. Peter and St. Paul walking tour which not many tour operators offer. Our guides Blitch and Paul were both very nice, knowledgeable and explained clearly. Those two tours are really worth doing as Eternal City would bring you to the non-typical sites. As a non-Catholic/Christian, we have found both tours very interesting on both historical and architectural perspectives and would be more so if people go to Rome for pilgrimage. Highly recommend Eternal City Tours to anyone

"By far this was one of my favorite tours."
August 19, 2016
By far this was one of my favorite tours. James was absolutely amazing and we really appreciated the extra time that he took to answer our questions. He also gave us a quick lesson on the best places for shopping and dining. He is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to be around. The tour itself was breathtaking to say the least. The churches were breathtaking and it gave us a better understanding of what we had been taught in church. To be able to have a visual image of what you had only read previously was such a blessing. I highly encourage everyone to take this tour and request James as he was awesome!
