The Eternal City Tours presents:
I think that Bruno did the Vatican Tour. The guide that we had was very good and spoke English well. He made the tour interesting by involving us in quizzes along the way. He was very knowledgable and always happy to answer questions.
Very knowledgeable, and patient with slower walkers. Painted a vivid image of the sites.
Really enjoyed the tour and Bruno's very special way of explaining the Roman history. His style of giving everyone in the group a character made the history very memorable and engaging. Many thanks to Bruno!
He is a terrific guide who made us all participate in the past lives of Roman Citizens as he took us through the streets and ruins

I would like to thank Bruno our tour guide for a wonderful experience. Not only was the tour informative but it was also fun and all of the group were involved. I would definitely recommend it. 5* Thank you
Enjoyed tour and Bruno involved each tour member.
it was a fabulous tour. i thought it was clever of bruno to assign characters to members in our group and use them throughout the tour. It greatly helped me put the historical sequence of events together.
We enjoyed the Colosseum tour very much. We wanted a tour that provided a good overview of the area and its history but did not get bogged down with minute details of dates and names from ancient history. This often is a fine line, however Bruno managed to find just the right balance. He was entertaining and encouraged full and fun participation be other tour members. It was a really good experience- having admission prices included as part of the tour cost made everything go faster. We also enjoyed the 25 minutes we were given within the Colosseum to roam around on our own. We would be happy to book with you again- thanks Bruno

Every bit was enjoyable. to have us all feeling included by having us be characters of the time made the tour that bit more interesting. thanks so much for making our trip to Roma extra special.
Bruno made the tour fun. We would have missed so much by not knowing what we were looking at.

A very interesting and informative 3 hours - time passed very quickly We liked the way Bruno introduced the key people in the building of the Colosseum and then continued to weave the character in and out of the tour .
We found the tour amazing. Bruno used role play well to engage us and immerge us into the history throughout the tour. Everyone in the group was involved and assigned personas such as Maximus and the Vestal Virigns. Overall, brillant tour - will recomend to Friends. Bruno definitely made the tour! Charming, funny and knowledgable.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Bruno coped well with the disruption from the city marathon and gave an excellent tour. Giving the tour members character names and roles from ancient Rome really helped me remember all the information he gave us. He also answered all questions very well. Would highly recommend the tour to friends going to Rome.
Involved the group in an engaging manner. Information at his fingertips, but never dull.
Couldn't believe our luck when we got Bruno.The tour was so well organized, a small group & Bruno involved every one of us in the history of the Colosseum & the Forum. Bruno was so knowledgeable & informative & so made it interesting even if one wasn't a real history buff.
We really had a great time. We all had roles to play during the tour which made it a lot of fun and informative. Bruno was fabulous!!!!!!!
Excellent tour showing you the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Our group had an age range from a 6 yr old (Sparticus) to the mid fifties and Bruno had a way to relate to everyone. He had an amazing ability to involve everyone in the tour and was very humourous. He was very informative and left you wanting to know more without boring you with things that you didn't want or need to know. Thank you Bruno and Eternal City Tours for making our tour everything we wanted.
Amazing job, he knew so much about all the cities and history. Loved it.
Excellent guide. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome.
Bruno brought the majesty of Ancient Rome to life in the middle of the Colosseum. Skilfully blending ancient history with Hollywood’s interpretation, and his canny knack of getting the whole group involved by giving us all “titles” the tour passed like a breeze and I for one thoroughly enjoyed it. As with all our guides he responded with great knowledge and enthusiasm to answer all of the group’s questions.
Bruno was absolutely excellent as was the tour generally. Very informative and amusing too. Our only regret was having to rush off to catch our plane home and forgetting to to give him a tip. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Peter & Elaine Mitchell
Very enjoyble tour, Bruno very knowledgable was great to hear all the fasinating facts and see main sights.
Amazing, informative tour. Bruno's tour was fantastic, he involved everyone in the group and was constantly helping us all to visualise the ancient world from the few remaining ruins. From children to older group members he dealt with everyone at their own personal level. Well done Bruno. Highly recommend to anyone.

Bruno gave us a most enjoyable tour keeping us very well informed and amused in equal measure. We were very pleased that we had booked the tour. Aloan Brandon
Quite simply the tour was one of the highlights of out trip to Rome and Bruno's presentation and engagement was simply superb.

Bruno made the whole experience come to life, he has a great ability to make us feel part of the Roman experience. Just walking around without his guidence would have been very uninteresting.
The tour was fantastic! Bruno was so informative and made the tour really fun. I will definitely do this tour again. Nicole Chidiac Same mould as Tiffany on the Vatican trip, very knowledgable, helpful and came across as very enthuisiastic. Brought the tour to life by naming "punters" as certain roman people of the ERA which was a good communication idea and fun. Again, great fun, learnt a lot and very highly recommended. Regards,
I enjoyed this tour very much and thought that Bruno provided lively and entertaining commentary. He seemed very knowledgable about all things Rome and was evidently passionate about his city. Otherwise, I had a good day.
The tour was excellent. Bruno was very informative and engaging the entire time.
We had a great tour.

Hello, I took a tour Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half day walking tour on August 13 at 10 am. My Tour guide was Bruno. He is very knowledgeble, and the tour was very interactive and interesting. I would like to let you know that we really liked how he explained to us ancient history. Sincerely,
It was perfect!
Bruno did an EXCELLENT job of informing us - not only of the Colosseum (Flavian Amphitheatre as he corrected us) but by giving us all 'roles' to play so we better understood the entire time period of ancient Rome. He had peripheral knowledge (of plants, phrases and history) that really led to a VERY informative in depth tour that was one of our highlights of our trip to Italy. (And his English was excellent.) GREAT JOB!!
We loved the tour, and Bruno made it fun and interesting. I felt like I learned a lot from Bruno. All history should be taught that way! It was a highlight of our trip.
Bruno gave an exceptional tour because he made sure it was interactive, lively and light hearted. Giving each of us a role to play really helped to cement knowledge of the Roman history that is necessary to understand in relations to the building structures. It was also nice that he would speak to the individual rather than just addressing a group of random strangers. The tour was very organised and helpful. He went beyond what was required and knew answers to our many questions.
Bruno did an excellent job and we really learned a lot about ancient roma.
Bruno was absolutely fantastic - a wealth of knowledge, humorous and extremely thoughtful.
I learned of your tour company via other travellers and booked online the night prior to the tour. Very organized website and easy to navigate to confirm the tour. The tour organizers were very informative and friendly upon check in at the Colosseum. Our group leader, Bruno, was very knowledgeable and balanced ancient history with modern references that kept the tour fresh and very interesting. Really appreciated Bruno's expertise, he's extremely well studied and was very comfortable answering the very random questions we posed. His humour was very refreshing and he involved every individual on the tour keeping us all engaged and participating in group commentary (hard to do on such a hot day). All in all, an excellent experience and I will recommend your tour company to my friends for their travels to Rome. Best regards

A very informative tour, Bruno's knowledge and delivery were spot on. Perfect for the adult audience and our 11 and 13 year olds, as a family we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it exceeded our expectations. Liz Cousins
Very interesting tour.
This was a great tour, wish we could have seen more of the Forum though. Bruno was very interactive with us and made it more enjoyable.
Bruno was terriffic in making the tour "come alive" for the entire audience. He is very passionate about Roma and what he was talking about which made it all the more interesting. We had a great time and it was a highlight of our stay in this beautiful city. His restaurant recommendations were also perfect.
He knew more then me.... I was impressed!!! Great job Bruno, you were very knowledgable and friendly
Best Tour guide ever! He made the tour even more engaging by having everyone "assume" an historical figure/role. I learned more during this tour and remembered the information afterwards because of Bruno. In addition to Bruno, the tour was very organized. Overall outstanding experience.
Bruno was very knowledgable and enjoyable. We had a great time on this tour and would highly recommend it!
He was an awesome guide. I went on several tours while in Rome, and this tour was by far my favorite. I enjoyed the role playing that he did-- it made learning about history much more enjoyable. He also did a good job of answering questions.
It was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Bruno knew what he was talking about and he was funny, which is a great combination. I learned a lot on this tour and I'm very glad I had such an amazing experience. It will be a memory I will never forget! Thanks.
Bruno interacted well with his audience and tried to make them all feel like they were part of history. Very interesting.
Christine De Vallee
Our guide was wonderful! With the detail information he verbally provided I was able to actually envision how it must have looked 4,000 years ago. A+ I hope he gets paid well because he is awesome!
This was the best tour we took in Roma, all because of Bruno! He was a great guide and got the entire group involved in the tour. I can not say enough great things about the tour and Bruno. I would highly recommend this tour to others and hope they get Bruno as a guide, he was the best!
Loved the way Bruno got everyone involved by giving us all names from the story he told us of Ancient Rome. He brought everything to life and made it much more interesting than if we had done it on our own.
Dave and Joan Raimbach
It was such a crowded day - I'm sure that made it hard for him. leslie Excellent!
I couldn't imagine any better! Thank You Bruno, your knowledge was astounding, and well delivered. Ciao
Bruno did an excellent job. Very friendly, informative and conducted the tour in a very professional manner.
Excellent tour guide - loved the way Bruno had us interact with the group by giving us Emperor, gladiator names etc. This gave us a better feel for the place. He had a great sense of humour and was very knowledgeable.
We took the Ancient Rome tour on 9 March 2016 when it was raining, windy and the temperature dropped to almost freezing. Bruno however was still able to manage and make the tour interesting and informative. He did an excellent job.
Digna R Walker & Marissa Caluya
Bruno was outstanding. He brought everything to life and was exceptionally knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole event.
Bruno was an excellent guide/lecturer and very personable and entertaining. There was a lot of walking and he set a pace that my wife (who has rheumatoid arthritis) had no difficulty keeping up with. I especially liked the way he showed us the Forum from atop the Palatine.
We had excellent tour. Thanks. Bruno was extremely knowledgeable about roman history with many stories to keep us enthralled.
Despite the bad weather Bruno made it a very enjoyable Tour.
it was enjoyable how Bruno gave us roles to play (I was Emperor Titus) and then interwove the ancient stories using us as participants.
Found Bruno good fun as a guide. Got everyone involved as he gave everybody a character i.e. an emperor's name etc. Found his info and feedback excellent in the palatine hill and roman forum part of the tour. Colosseum tour was good also. We enjoyed his dry sense of humour, as a couple we found him very funny but not sure everybody got his sense of humour. All in all a great tour.
Information provided throughout the tour was very relevant and interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, and learned a lot about Ancient Rome.
Bruno's knowledge and story tale 's left an everlasting thirst for Rome's history in my sixteen year old boys. Bruno was excellent and everyone enjoyed the tour, even in the pouring rain.
The tour was fantastic, Bruno was great, full of information and entertaining as well. I would recommend this tour.
Bruno was fantastic! One of the best tour guides that I have ever had. Please let him know that we really enjoyed his tour. He did a wonderful job.
Very worthwhile, enjoyable tour. Our party of four really enjoyed our guide Bruno, and learned a lot about the Colosseum and Ancient Rome. Highly recommended.
Great tour -- his information and insight were outstanding -- his interaction with each an every member in the group was what made it not your average tour -- but worth every penny -- Highlight of our time in Rome. Thanks
Excellent tour. Thank you!
Elizabeth Black and Leo Lessard
Bruno was knowledgeable, entertaining and professional. It was a most memorable experience right to the end, and that was despite wet weather. Bruno kept our attention and captivated our minds. He was great! 5 Star Rating
Karen and Brian Foster
Bruno was not only knowledgeable, but also made the tour fun using role playing etc...
Bruno gave an excellent tour he involved all the guest into his tour and made it fun for all. He gave us a lot of information that I or we did not know. all I can say is it was Great.
Bruno was better than excellent - you need to include a rating: outstanding! Excellent relationships with his group, great level of information, and a super performance!
3 hours is a long time to expect two children to walk, sight-see and listen, but Bruno did an excellent job keeping their interest. Designating character roles to people and acting out some of the scenes was a great idea in helping to keep their attention.
The idea to engage the group to act as different historical persons was a good pedagogical thing.
I have to congratulate Bruno for an excellent tour. As a teacher previously and now an inspector of education I have a particularly critical eye and was highly impressed by the way he integrated and engaged the whole group throughout the very long and hot tour. His knowledge, confidence and enthusiasm was outstanding, one of the best tours I have ever taken. Very many thanks.
Bruno made history come to life.
