Every Context Tour we have taken has been worthwhile and impressive, but Dony ups the standard. His enthusiasm combined with his capacity to relate complicated historical connections made our time with him amazing. Any time we return to Rome we plan to book another tour with him as we have no doubt it will enrich our understanding of history.
This was one of the most delightful and inspiring experiences we had in Rome. It was a highlight of our trip. We took a relaxed tour of some of the most beautiful, awe-inspiring churches in Rome. Chiara is a kind and generous guide. On this tour, she shares the beauty of Rome, its churches and its festive nativity scenes. We were taken to incredibly beautiful places we would otherwise have walked by without noticing. She has deep roots in Rome and with the Catholic Church. She is a lovely person to spend an afternoon with.
Being in Rome at Christmas, this was a must on our list. Jose clearly knows his stuff. His timeline helped put so many historical facts from many different cultures and religions into a single frame that just made things easier to understand. Seeing the churches, nativities and other significant elements in each church was an education. Jose was really flexible with us, as we had to get Covid tested before our flights the next day and he helped us by going farmacia to farmacia on our route (perhaps one or two off the route) to get us where we needed to go.
