This was a wonderful tour but very physically exerting. We took this tour after the morning tour of the Vatican. My 80+ year-old mother was too tired to manage all the walking and stairs involved in the afternoon tour. BUT for the 3 of us who went, it was well worth the exertion. Our guide was very knowledgeable - easily able to fill a 15-minute wait to enter the Coliseum. His English was easily understood. At the beginning, on the bus, 3 different guides explained what we were seeing in 3 different languages. I was wondering how this was going to work. When we exited the bus, we were divided by language and the rest of the tour was a joy. A must-do tour.
The local guide was very good. We were grateful for his informative and engaged style.
Absolutely excellent. Well organized. Great information. Wondeful tour guide.
very enjoyable indeed. Saw may of the main sites, and our guide was very charasmatic and knowledgeable. Unfortunately he also spoke quite fast, and i didn;t get his name, so can't thank him for a lovely afternoon. Would have liked a little more at the colosseum, but the tour did finish late enough, so appreciate it was not possible. It was a dream come true to actually stand inside and wander around, worth every penny!
This was the best walking tour of the holiday . The guide was excellat and really made the trip so fun fun . Loved the fact that we didnt have to wait to get into the colossum - this was worth every penny !
Awesome...mossimo our guide was terrific! Great pace, knew the history....
We had Franco as a tour guide. He was excellent. Very knowledgeable and amiable.
Our guide was very knowlegeable and very patient with the slower tourists, which we all appreciated. The tour was a great introduction to Rome and all its history - I recommend everyone who is visiting Rome for the first time take this tour to famialiarise themselves with the general layout and history of this magnificent city
Great tour of all of ancient rome. The guide was a great guy and did a fantastic job.
The guide was very kind and informative. I wish thy would give us a timeline of events on a paper.The colosseum is definitely worth seeing with no standing in line with this tour.
The tour does not pick up from all hotels though.
This is a primary tour to take when arriving in Rome. It is a very informative tour so try to take it as soon as possible after settling into the city. It is an easy tour but very crowded.
Awesome and very informative tour. The guide was entertaining and knowledgeable - it made the whole experience enjoyable. My only suggestion was that he should have dressed up like one of the gladiators that we saw at the Colosseum :-)
Another a must do tour. The guide is pro. Loves to hear his accent.
Our tour guide (Dr. Vanessa) is very knowledgeable. Her language skills are excellent. She is attentive and willing to answer special questions for her guests. She has taken the time to research other locations that the tour passes so she can share as much information as possible with the participants. I am very pleased with my experience. This tour is a highlight tour and not a long walking exploration of the sights. It might be best to take early into a stay in Rome rather than at the end of your stay.
This was a wonderful tour. Of course, the highlight was the Colosseum, which was the highlight of the tour. The guide was excellent and answered all our questions. I recommend this tour without reservation.
Excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. He went out of his way to accommodate my family who has two senior adults who had difficulty in keeping up with the pace.
Pick up at our hotel was on time. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Overall I give this a 5 Star Rating. Excellent value, expecially for those that do not want to stand in line waiting for tickets.
