Excellent tour that included all of the top sites to see of Ancient Rome! We had a wonderful tour guide who was very informative and spoke English very well. Just so you know what to expect, there is a lot of walking on cobblestone paths and a lot of steps within the Coliseum. Just wear comfortable shoes. This is a must-do tour!!
Alfredo was excellent. He was knowledgeable and was always attentive to the group. Was a very informative tour. Be prepared to walk quite a bit. There are a couple restroom stops along the way. Total tour took 3.5 hrs.
This tour was brilliant, our guide was most helpful and having the headset was great as we could just take it all in and sit back and listen. Queue jump at the Colosseum was great. Highly recommend.
Very enjoyable tour - we learned a great deal of history about Ancient Rome and our guide was wonderful.
The tour was great! We loved Francesca! She made the tour really fun and interesting. It was a great way to see a lot of the popular sites as well as learn all about them. We would definitely recommend doing this at the beginning of your trip to Rome!
An Excellent guide, I think his name was Alfredo, very clear diction and knowledgable. Wish I had known about the lift up in the Colosseum, I should have enquired as I do find slopes and stairs very difficult. So a relief to takes the lift down!
The tour was everything it said it would be. Great tour guide who was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. It is a fast-paced tour so that should be emphasized - not for people who can't walk the city streets quickly. I would have liked some written information about what we saw so that I could review it afterwards. So much information in a short time - it was hard to remember everything!
Our group was very small and it was like having a private guide just for our family. My 9 year old grandson was so fasinated by all the information the guide gave us. Our guide went out of his way so we could see everything we wanted to visit and even took us to a beautiful church that wasn't listed on the tour. It was GREAT!!!
Fab tour, guide was so knowledgable and lovely! Excellent way to see these sights!
Excellent energetic informative tour guide. Hit all the great sites of ancient Rome. Highly recommend
This was a fabulous tour. I arrived late due to traffic and luckily the group was still there and the tour guide had an extra ear set. He said, don't worry about it, we'll deal when we reconvene with the coordinator. He didn't know whether or not I was apart of his group or not. He didn't have to do that. When we met up with the coordinator, everything was straightened out and I was good to go. During the tour he was very detailed in his overview of the monuments. It was very hot and he answered questions, provide opportunities for us to rest, had pictures to illustrate what the areas looked like back then compared to what they look like now. It is a lot of walking, so make sure you have the right shoes on and bring your own water bottle. Walking through Rome and all its history is amazing.
My husband and I were in Italy this past February for our honeymoon. It was great that we went during the off season, because Rome still had a lot of tourists during this time. We spent 2 days in every city we visited, and we made sure to get a walking tour on our first days. This half-day walking tour of Ancient Rome was a great! We covered a lot of ground, and got to see the main attractions in Ancient Rome. This was also great because we got to skip the long line at the Colosseum - and you will want to skip that line...especially if you plan on going during the peak seasons. Also, our tour guide Nicola was very friendly and informative! Definitely recommend this tour!
This tour was perfect, and our guide was firnedly and full of answers to all my litle questions! I'd recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!!
I think the tour was outstanding. We were fortunate that our guide was an archeologist by profession who was so well informed. She was a pleasure to have as a guide also. I highly recommend this tour
Tour guide was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Well worth the time and money
