Our tour guide was also an archaeologist which was an added plus because he made the Colosseum come alive for us. I had visited before but never had taken a tour and was happy that we did.Wish we had just a little more time in the forum but it was an extremely hot day.

Both our guides were fabulous. They were experts on the subject and had a great attitude. They were fluent in English and worked well with the group.

From personal experience, we would recommend doing the Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour on another day if possible. The three day Colosseum Tour can be tiring, especially in the summers.

Fabulous tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome! Our guide was superb, making history come alive as she explained how the Colosseum operated. The walking tour was also wonderful, providing up-close looks at the famous landmarks of Rome.

Alessandro was awesome! He was knowledgeable, patient, and his English was terrific. A superb tour guide. We enjoyed everything and would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a good appreciation of the history and archaeology of the ancient Roman time period. We ended up skipping the Best of Rome Afternoon tour because we needed more time to rest in between and decided we wanted to explore on our own, but are very glad we did the tour of the Colosseum and Roman Ruins.

The guide was excellent and skipping the line makes sense. The tour turned out to be too physically challenging for me and I had to leave in the early afternoon so missed the Pantheon. This was my fault, can't blame the tour operator.

Our tour guide-Sarah Napol.. Was the best guide ever. Her passion for the colosseum and ancient Ruins was evident in her presentation narrative. She was articulate and extremely interesting to listen to and answered asked questions with the same excitement.

WONDERFUL! We had the BEST TOUR GUIDE - EVER! GIGI knew absolutely everything about EVERYTHING. He was delightful, engaging and funny! He kept us in the shade and made sure we were able to have the best photos possible. We would definitely take this tour again- but only if GIGI was guiding!!!

Very good tour and our guide Francesca was very nice. We had to skip the afternoon tour because this was our 7th tour in 5 days. We went on the morning tour because it was the Colosseum and Roman Forum. We were not disappointed. Large crowds but Francesca kept us moving and I have to say the little radio/earphone equipment they have is great. Important note if you are arriving by taxi and you say take me to Metro B station like the instructions. You don't have to go downstairs into the station - the meeting place is just behind the taxi drop off lane. Don't go down the steps towards the Colosseum. Look to the right and behind you - that little park area is the meeting location. It will save you 5 minutes and you end up just 50 feet away. LOL

Excellent introduction to the sights and attractions of Rome. Our guide on the Colosseum and Forum section was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. We were with our grandchildren and her narrative kept them involved and interested. I had been on this tour a few years ago but this version was more comprehensive in the Forum area. Recommend it highly!

Excellent tour led by our guide Lucy a.k.a. Luciana. She was very knowledgeable about the Colloseum and the Ancient City ruins i.e. Palatine. Fast entry facilitated quick and easy access. Lucy made it very easy to understand the significance of the ancient city ruins by using a book with illustrations enabling the audience to visualise the actual ruins, if we were to view it 2000 years back. Overall an excellent tour.
