“I can honestly say that the tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill was one of the most enjoyable and informative tours that we have ever taken. Luca's knowledge of the subject matter was deep and wide and he was able to effortlessly convey the history in an understandable framework. He really helped us connect the dots. We really enjoyed it and are looking forward to returning to the beautiful and richly historic city of Rome.” see lessOctober 02, 2015 Don

“We did three tours with Through Eternity and all three were fabulous! The first was with Mario with an evening tour of the Piazza’s and Fountains. I was very enjoyable and Mario kept the tour lively and full of information. The second was with Filippo where we had an in depth tour of the Coliseum, Palatine Hill, and the Forum. Despite the amount of time and the pouring down rain at the start, Filippo showed us a beautiful church to start and followed with an extremely knowledgeable tour of the archeological sites. The pace was perfect and attentions to everyones needs were excellent. Our final tour was with Luca whose knowledge of the art and artists of the museum and Sistine Chapel were amazing. Again an in depth tour that was well paced full of information on the beautiful Vatican city. We thoroughly enjoyed all of our tours. The guides were excellent and we will highly recommend! Dedicated to your success!” see lessSeptember 30, 2015 Connie

“My husband and I did the Through Eternity tour Special Sistine Chapel tour before it Opens to the public, Vatican museums and St. Peter’s on Sept 3rd. This tour was referred to us and we are so happy that we did it. This was one of the main highlights of our honeymoon in Rome. I am Agnostic, so the Vatican did not have any religious intrigue or special meaning for me, but it is a place to see to cross off the bucket list. Guia was fabulous. Guia was knowledgeable, passionate, you could ask her any questions about ANYTHING (and she encouraged you to!) and she was ready to answer. She created such a unique, memorable experience for us. To be able to gaze up and marvel at the Sistine Chapel without the crowds of people, was magical and truly a once-and-a-lifetime experience. Appreciated being able to walk through the Raphael rooms ALONE as well, while being the only individuals in the room. It was worth every euro we spent on this tour. I now have such an appreciation for the arts, sculptures, the architecture, the history, the mythological stories… it was a surreal experience. Thank you Guia for making our visit to the Vatican one we will be raving about for years to come – and never lose your love and passion for the Vatican City!” see lessSeptember 23, 2015 Anastasia and Stephen
