If you only take one tour in Rome, this should be it. You see the most amazing sites - the Colisseum and the Forum, the Trevi fountain etc. You walk on the same stones the Romans did 2000 years ago; you see where the gladiators fought, you see ancient architecture that is still standing! It's a lot of walking, but it's a slow pace, and you learn so much about each site. We had lots of time to take pictures and rest for a couple of minutes if necessary. I highly recommend this tour.
Given the heat and horrendous crowds this was a great tour. Maria demonstrated superb knowledge and patience in navigating the group around the thronging ancient sites. Without a guided tour much of the sites would remain a pile of rubble but she animated the places and the people who occupied them and really created for us a vivid picture of the glories of Ancient Rome. the afternoon tour was enthusiastically led by the vibrant Nina who shared her love of Rome by leading us to the great highlights of the Pantheon, Trajen's column, The Spanish Steps, The Trevi Fountain and much more. We did this at the end of our time in Rome and wished we had begun with it. On all of our tours in Rome we found the guides to be highly professional and superbly qualified. We were really enriched by all of the tours and can only imagine what we would have missed if we had attempted it all on our own.
Very organised guide made sure we all enjoyed experience. Learnt so much and information made place far more interesting.
Both of these tours were absolutely outstanding! Both our guides, Patrizia and Nina aka Mama Bear are archaeologists. They were extremely knowledgeable, thorough, well organized, and always had our comfort and safety in mind.
We had very exelent guide, she known the history very well and it was very good tour. Tour was exelent and intresting. The most of all we liked the first part of tour in Coliseum and Roman Forum. I highly recommend this tour as it is intresting and most of all due to skip the line option.
Also the second part of tour was very nice and we enjoyed it. Giudes are speeking Eanglish very well and are very helpfull and kind.
Excellent tour! Very friendly and informed guides. Lots of walking but the pace is comfortable. It poured rain the day we went. We were prepared with ponchos and umbrellas. Plan for any weather because the guides never miss a beat! Awesome tour even with the rain!
As we only had a short time we opted to do this tour and it while it was a very long day, it was excellent. The short siesta between the morning and afternoon was most welcome. The contrast between Ancient Rome in the morning and Baroque Rome in the afternoon was extraordinary and both guides were entertaining and knowledgeable - a truly excellent experience.
I am impressed with the level of knowledge that each of the tour guide have provided to us. We would never appreciate Rome and the history without their help. Big thanks!
This tour starts with a tour of the Colosseum. You are given a head set and earphones which usually find hard to hear and less personal as guide will often not even face the group when they talk and I usually miss out on a lot of information.
However in this tour the guide stops the group at several points long the way before speaking to the group which I found quite nice. The guide gives you full history on the Colosseum from its fast contraction to its uses over the years which is really insightful and enjoyable.
You spend around and hour at the Colosseum before moving on to the Ancient ruins of Rome which included information on it's history, discovery and uses over time.
This tour moves at a steady pace and is loaded with entertaining information with a clear to understand and knowledgable guide. Groups size is around 20. I would recommend is this tour for people of all ages.
