David was great! This was my favorite part of my trip to Rome. There was a decent amount of walking but it was logical and informative the entire way. I definitely think that I learned more and got more out of this trip than I would have if I had just bought tickets to the different areas and taken myself. Unfortunately most places in Italy don't have English translations so taking a good English speaking guide can really get you your money and time's worth in places.
We LOVED this tour and our tour guide, Maurizio! We learned a lot about the history and architecture of the Colosseum within the context of the the personalities and societal norms of the time. The guide was organized and had entrance tickets delivered to him before we got to the gate, so no waiting for entry. The group size was the perfect size to keep up together and able to ask questions directly along the way.
The second part of the tour was the Forum, which was also interesting. Maurizio did a great job covering the highlights without a lot of walking, then walked us up Pallatine Hill to the old Palace, which was fantastic.
We highly recommend this tour!
This was the only tour that we booked and let me tell you it was money well spent. The tour guide was very friendly and explained every historical detail in simple, interesting terms so visitors of all ages understood. The down side was that it rained all day but I can honestly say the tour was the highlight of our mini break.
Maurizio was an excellent guide! Very knowledgeable and I learned new things after having done a similar tour in the past at the Colosseum.
Great tour. Our tour guide Davide knew what he was talking about and you could tell that he was absolutely passionate about the history and culture of the city that he lived in. Funny guy, great attractions.
Highly recommended tour!
Tour guide was great and easy to understand. Took her time and established the history of Rome prior to beginning the tour. Would definitely recommend.
Highly recommend this tour, our guide was extremely knowledgable and informative and to skip the line to get in worth every cent! Top notch
An excellent tour, our guide, Sara, was very knowledgeable about the Colosseum and it's history and also the Forum area. She was also a delightful person to spend a few hours with. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Our guide was excellent. Wonderful tour. I strongly recommend.
Our guide was terrific and very knowledgeable. It was a great tour to see the inside of the Colosseum and the adjacent ancient Rome ruins. Lot of walking through cobblestone streets taking in all of Rome's history. We had great weather....
