Enjoyed Catacombs and Roman Countryside Tour
My daughter and I took this tour and both liked it. We booked it because we wanted to get out to the catacombs and the Appian Way without having to deal with figuring out the transportation. Even though we liked this tour, I'll have to say that we took two other tours with Through Eternity and thought their guide was a bit more passionate and did a better job. Anyway, this tour takes you via bus to the catacombs on the Appian Way, where you join a guided tour given by a priest or monk (your guide for this part is affiliated with the catacombs site, not Enjoy Rome). We both thought the catacombs were interesting. Note: They tend to take somewhat large (20 people?) groups down. Try and stay in the front, or you might have trouble hearing what the guide is saying. After the catacombs, the tour continues further down the Appian Way, where you get to get out of the bus and walk a bit. At the end of the tour, they stop at a point where you can see the aqueducts. The view of the aqueducts is over a golf course. I was hoping we'd be a bit closer. The bus was comfortable with good air conditioning. However, a few times the bus driver was talking on his phone at a conversational tone while the tour guide was talking and it was a bit hard to hear her. To me, that struck me as a bit bone-headed on the bus driver's part. I'd guess we spent about 1 to 1.5 hours of the 3 hours on the bus. Even though this tour wasn't the "near-perfect" experience our Through Eternity tours were, we both thought it was a good experience and a reasonable value.
