Our tour guide, Daniela, was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was our tour guide for both Colosseum/Rome Forum and Vatican museum. Although it was hot and crowded (especially in Vatican) during our visit, she made the tour so enjoyable. She was also very good at engaging my two children (9 and 13 Y). All of us had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Daniela and ICON tours for anyone visiting Rome.

Our tour guide, Daniela, was excellent and would recommend her to anyone taking a tour with Icon. We had a large group of 14 with ages of 3 to 74 and Daniela did a great job moving at a reasonable speed and getting the young children involved so they enjoyed the stories as well. The use of a picture book and iPad separates ICON from other tour companies I've used in the past. Daniela even gave us a recommendation for lunch afterwards and walked us to the place and made sure we were setup with a table before leaving us. Would recommend ICON to anyone visiting Rome.

Daniella's wealth of knowledge was only matched by her personality and flexibility to accommodate our schedule and inclement weather. Daniella was our guide for our Vatican tour, the coliseum tour, ancient Rome, the catacombs and a host of other must see attractions. We cannot say enough about Daniella and her incredible personality and knowledge. I highly recommend Daniella and ICON tours for any trip to Rome.

My Fiancè and I took this tour today with Icon Tours. We couldn't speak highly enough of it and especially our guide Danni. She was fantastic, providing us with detailed and interesting knowledge while at the same time remaining fun and engaging. She was never overwhelming and gave people time to take in the sights. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would have no hesitation on recommending it to others looking for a comprehensive yet laid back tour of Rome's historical sights.
