Terrible experience
, Jul 2022
Booked for English guide but tour company decided to switch to different time with Italian guide at last moment without our consent and refused to refund. Went there anyway and found out there were plenty of English guided tour 15 min prior and after time we were rebooked to. Poor customer service.

hello, we do apologize for the customer service, you booked an English tour it's right but also in the tour description, it was written very clearly, also in the voucher if English is not available then by default language in Italian. kindly check your voucher and tour which you booked, we are extremely sorry you are not happy with us and thanks again for understanding where is the misunderstanding.
Could have been a disaster but was a great experience thanks to Daniel
, Mar 2022
Last minute ( 5 days before ) booking... no choice but to take the Italian tour with an English guide... Luckily for us, Daniel compensated for our lack of understanding of Italian... He was mindful of our language limitations and thus gave us a pre explanation of what we see and took each occasion to bring us additional details inside. After the visit, he responded to all our questions we still had.. At the end of the day, It was a great tour which justified the hefty price paid (>200 euros)...

thanks for your explanation, as inside the Domus the authority they provided sometimes English and sometimes Italian guide and that's why we send the guide to help our travelers to understand the explanation inside to the Domus after finish the tour with Domus authorized guide.

Ein sehr guter Guide. Er hat die Geschichte um Nero und seinen Palast lebendig und spannend rüber gebracht. Die Organisation durch den Touroperator Viatour war eine Katastrophe
