Es hat Spaß gemacht seinen mitreißenden Geschichten zu lauschen. Es war eine super Mischung aus witzigen, informativen und gruseligen Geschichten. Einfach super.

It was a gift to my aunt to participate in the tour when we went to Rome and we had the best time! Joey was the perfect guy for telling the mystic stories with his smokey irish voice and the perfect amount of black humor. He handled even the stressful situations with fun and included random photo shoots and parking cars in his jokes. all the stories were vividly told and one even sympathized with the weird witches and executioner. already recommended this tour to friends and will definitely try one of the other tours when we are in rome again. thank you!
