Phil is a great guide! Personable, competent and passionate! He gave loads of information and was really engaging! The tour itself is really interesting cause it shows a less known part of Rome but still one of those areas one should visit! I highly recommend this tour and Phil as a guide!!
Philip gave a brilliant tour. His serious scholarship illuminated the final chapter of Roman history that is often overlooked. A must for the intellectually curious.
We had the pleasure of taking 2 tours with Richard. He paces the tour beautifully and loads the 3 hours with a tremendous but manageable amount of information
