Our tour guide--a native Roman--was very good. She had studied archeology in university. Though the weather was very hot we enjoyed the history. Would recommend that Viator provide a shadey rest stop (cafe?) for 15 minute break during this 3+ hour tour.
Ease at jumping the queue, Guide very informative, well worth it.
Our guide Valentina was passionate about the coliseum, roman forum and palatine hill. Not only a guide but an archeologist!!!! Everything about our tour was wow, wow, wow. We learnt so much and were overwhelmed.
We had an excellent tour guide that was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. I wish that I could have recorded his tour to play back later. His tour was filled with facts that would be hard to find in any written documents.
Extremely enlighnting tour about the life of gladiators and how Hollywood has deceived us on how they actually were.
Barbara was amazing. She really knew her history and the stories. She loves her job and it shows during the tour. You learn so much more by taking the tours. Take the tour!!!
This was a great tour. The meeting spot was easy to find and the employees were friendly. Our guide, David was great. As a matter of fact, he ended up being our guide the first day (Vatican tour) as well. He was very informative and had a great personality adding in small tidbits of information along the way. He was very thoughtful as well to the older people in the group that this tour was a little tiring for. He made sure to always find a shady spot as well as a seat for them when ever we stopped. I would highly recommend this tour. We loved it!
Knowledgable, helpful and interesting guide, well organised tour, user friendly booking.
The tour was very well organized and guide was very passionate about the her job and was very informative
The tour was great! Our guide was awesome. However, the amount of walking towards the very beginning of the tour should me minimized. Also, our tour guide spent too much time talking about SPOR. But, overall it was a great trip.
Amazing tour! Sabrina, our guide was wonderful! My son has been studying Latin for years and a visit to the Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum was an absolute thrill. Sabrina brought all of those places to life for us. We upgraded to the full Colosseum tour and it was so worth it. We went from the basement to the top, where only a limited number of people are admitted. It is a marvel of engineering and one of the highlights of our trip to Rome!
This was a very well run tour with excellent information and great explanations of historical Rome and it's place in the development of modern civilization.
The tour was great and the guide was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. One thing I would suggest is that the guides mention that if they want a picture with a gladiator, they will have to pay 5 Eruos! That is outrageous and guides should warn tourists so they aren't taken advantage of.
