"Incredible Touring Experience!"
May 22, 2017
My daughter and wife contacted Eternal City Tours for a day and a half of tour since we were in Rome for a short time and wanted to see as much as possible. The other consideration is that we are Catholic and thought it would be of benefit to have a tour from guides that understood our faith. That said, this tour company would be of benefit for anyone regardless of faith. We had 3 different guides over the one and one half days. They all attended university in Rome and had an incredible knowledge of the area we were exploring with them. I felt as if I were on a walking tour with a university professor who loved what he did and also loved sharing his knowledge with others. I'm convinced that we covered more ground in our day and a half that one could cover in 3 or 4 days.
From the Catholic standpoint, it was amazing. I learned much more than just who the artist was, it was a very moving experience...it felt more like a Pilgrimage. I would recommend this company to anyone who really wants a quality experience with guides that are educators.

"Made our trip to Rome!!!"
May 13, 2017
We arrived in Rome on an early Monday morning and Eternal City Tours (we worked with Tom) was more than willing to schedule us for a later start of the day for the Papal Basilica Tour which was a great start to our time in Rome. Some of these basilicas are out of the way, but if you are a Catholic visiting Rome, they are a must-see. Our tour guide was great and made sure that we knew the history of each basilica and gave us enough time to really take in each place. We were in no way rushed. The next day we did the "Rome Was Not Built in a Day Tour" which covered all of the big sites in Rome, plus some added on beautiful churches and cathedrals. Our tour guides were amazing the second day as well. The tours were fantastic as we were able to cover much more than we would have on our own. Plus, the information (historical, art history, etc.) was like taking a college class. Our groups were small (at some points, just us). Finally we felt at home with our guides based on out shared Catholic faith and world views. Definitely recommend this company for touring Rome. Great way to see the city!!!

Both James and Isabella were wonderful guides on our tours. They were very knowledgeable and made the experience more meaningful. My husband and I will definitely recommend Eternal City tours to anyone who is visiting.

"The Absolute Best!"
June 15, 2016
This was the most fun, thorough and detailed tour my Fiance and i have ever been on and we went on over 6 tours on our recent trip to Italy. It started out with emails to Tom, who responded very quickly and wrote in very clear English. We booked the "Rome wasn't built in a day tour," Isabella was wonderful. She was very engaging for the entire tour of Vatican City, with No dull moments! Her knowledge combined with rumor is what made this surreal experience even better! Then Jan, took us walking through the street of Rome. Not only did he take us to all the major sites, he told us the history as we walked, showed us great sports to get a Cafe, limoncello, panini and much more. It was so much more than history, but we felt as if he were locals. From the Pantheon to the Trevi fountain and everywhere in between, we ended at the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. Jan did an amazing job and I am so happy we were able to walk to city with him as our guide! We highly recommend this private tour through Eternalcitytours, and expecially our guides Isabella and Jan!
