Was in Rome a few years ago and took a tour with Odyssey which we thoroughly enjoyed - was surprised at the time at just how many tours they offered - it wasn't just limited to Rome, they also organised tours for nearby attractions as well, day trips etc and you also had the option of a tailormade tour. Came back in March of last year and booked a few tours with them. Was extremely impressed with how professional, informative and fun the tours and tour guides were - these people really love their jobs! All the guides we had were very approachable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic - even when it came to asking them for tips on where to eat and socialise! The tours were also very good value for money - in a city like Rome, where there is so much to see, and which would take you years to get around, I would recommend Odyssey taking you by the hand and showing you the highlights!
