We will take you on a trip around ancient Rome and back, you won't have to move, just stay still, let your mind do the walking and jump with us in a time machine and let us do the talking.

We will start our engines in the place where the city was inspired(*) and built by the hands that shaped the future of coming generations to keep moving, creating, conquering, destroying, building and transforming to create the world as we know it today.

I really enjoyed the tour. the tour was less touristy. Rather, one got an exciting impression of the history of Rome. The information that was received seemed to have been elaborately worked up and compiled. As a non-native speaker, I sometimes had difficulties understanding everything, but overall this was not a problem. I would definitely recommend the tour if there is a historical interest in Rome

The most amazing tour I ever been! Marcello (tour guide) was perfect, he known about history, art, and even give us tips about what to eat and where to go. The best for your first day in Rome!

I've done many of these free walking tours but this was the first one I left half-way through. The information was all taken off Wikipedia, sometimes inaccurately, and put together in a frantic and confused order. At times i didn't understand what the guide was talking about and I later realised I had missed crucial points information. Wouldn't recommend.

Response from Great Times Tours
Shame on u, hard work goes on the core of every detail of this tour is the only one of this kind in the city and is created through years of research dedicated to bring the best of this iconic landmark, with all due respect to those that are visiting us, some that cross the world and work very hard some during an entire life to be able to visit us at least once in their lifetime, young lady my job is to deliver the very best for every single turist but I understand your level of education, appreciation and respect for someone else's work since u walked away leaving nothing literally, nothing but a negativism after you, good for u.

It was perfect!! The guide provided a lot of details and was helpful even after the tour. We went for lunch and it turns out we had a lot in common! I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone fond of history and who wants to leave the tour with a good grasp of the history of Rome and its empire. William
