Best tour ever!
We looked for something unique, not just a tour of the Colosseum and the normal stuff that everyone sees. It was the best tour we took part in. The guide was unbelievable, with knowledge that doesn't end. He is a true Roman and you can tell he loves his town. He also speaks English fluently, and it is easy to understand him. We ended the tour in the BEST caffe in rome! I would have never come across this bar without our guide!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Crime tour of Rome
Michele was great!
I took this tour on my last night in Rome and I think it was a really cool way to end my time in the city. Michele was my guide and he was very informative and explained the crime events that took place really well, with a lot of detail and passion. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city as it gives a different perspective of Rome. I loved every moment of it!
Crime tour of Rome
Definitely worth the time and money!
Our tour guide Mike was awesome! He was so knowledgeable about the history behind these dark happenings and his method of storytelling was captivating! Being my second trip to Rome, I was insearch of the unconventional. This was it!
If you are thinking about doing this tour, DO IT. You won't be disappointed!
Crime tour of Rome
Interesting and informative
We had already spent a week in Rome seeing all of the “headline” sites. This tour was a fantastic end to the trip — a great walking tour through some less known sites and some that we had seen but with new perspective on the events that happened there. I would highly recommend it.

Awesome Tour - Incredible Guide

Crime tour of Rome
Fantastic experience - Highly recommended
I've visited Rome a few times so I was seeking a more local experience so chose this tour. Other friends were arriving into Rome so in the end we were 6 (mid age) women. Nicola our guide could not have been more accommodating, apart from the murals we also wanted to stop and sample some food/wine along our route so he happily incorporated this too into our ride. What we all really loved was exploring another side of Rome away from the tourists and the classic must sees, on this tour we visited exciting and quaint neighbourhoods and saw how the local folk really live and some really fantastic murals! Nicola was informative and we learnt some great information too. Nicola is really easy- going and wants you to have a great experience and each of us, regardless of our cycling skills (from near none to a tri-athlete) had a fantastic time. Do yourself a favor and book this tour, you won't regret it.

Great Tour!
Mike was a very enthusiastic tour guide! We were actually surprised that he didn't cancel despite it being a pretty chilly December night. We learned a lot from the tour regarding some pretty popular Roman "crimes" as well as some more obscure ones. He was very easy to talk with and could answer any question we had to throw at him! Afterwards we had some very delicious coffee (included) and then he gave us some tips and recommendations for the rest of our trip. Overall very satisfied and would recommend!

Very knowledgeable guide, and an interesting tour
We met Michel near the Pantheon and were pleasantly surprised to hear his very clear american accent (he is 100% Italian !). He has a very broad knowledge of history in general and engages in any questions etc. He brings life to many areas that you would otherwise not notice if walking around as a tourist. This is (mostly) a tour of what was considered criminality by a catholic regime (e.g. Galileo) so don't expect a history of gun running, mafia, hit-men etc.

Criminal tour of Rome
This is a wonderful way to see parts of the City. Fiona is extremely knowledgeable, full of enthusiasm and gave us a series of real stories at various sites of political murders, ancient Roman intrigue, and high society manipulation . You will also be shown interesting bits of architecture and historical snippets along the way. It isn't so much criminals, and should maybe named Martyrs and Murders. Great fun way to see the city from a different angle.

Thanks Michele!
Wow! Wish we could have done this tour first day in Rome since you learn so much history. Michele knew so much and shared so much history and interesting stories about what we were looking at. Too bad so many tourists walk by these places and have no idea what they just missed. Excellent English (he has US ties). A pleasant experience designed to keep walking to a minimum with greatest coverage.
