Our Guide (Mike) was great. He made the trip interesting and fun. Being able to explore underground Rome was fascinating and helped us to really appreciate how the city had grown up over the centuries. A great trip for a hot day as you spend most of the time in cool churches, underground or in an air conditioned coach. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to understand more about the customs and culture of ancient Rome.
The Colosseum was fascinating and being able to enter the arena, underground area (hypogeum) and the 3rd level gave you a feel for what it would have been like to both be a participant and a spectator in Ancient Rome. Our Guide spoke good English but we found it quite challenging to listen through headphones for the whole 4 hours. I would have liked more time to explore the Forum alone as we didn't see it all and less time spent on the Palatine Hill. All in all a good tour but tiring in the heat - remember to take your own water bottles to fill up at the fountains around Rome.
