Fascinating. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly with excellent master of English language. The tour was a highlight of our Italy trip.
Our guide was a qualified archaeologist and she helped make our tour most interesting with a lot of information about the construction of the Colosseum and its different uses over the years. She also made the Forum far more interesting than previous visits.
The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. We did not have to wait anywhere. Note that the stairs in the Colosseum are a challenge and an elevator is available, if you need it.
Wonderful tour but be prepared to WALK!!! Really nice tour guide!
Incredible knowledgable tour guide! Ancient Rome was unbelievable, so was the Colosseum. Highly recommend a tour to enhance the memories of this trip!
Francesca was a great tour guide. Very knowledgable and interesting. Definitely worth doing the tour instead of touring ourselves
Our tour guide, Claudia, was our best tour guide across 4 tours we took during a 5 day visit in Rome. She had a passion for her subject, and though Italian by birth, had a solid command of English. The Colosseum is the best part of the tour...lots to learn, and so fascinating to think what engineering of 2000 years ago was capable of. Also really helped to have a tour guide for the Roman Forum...otherwise it's hard to really fully appreciate what you're seeing or the history of it all.
Skipping the line at the Colosseum saved so much of my precious holiday time. The queues were HUGE! This would have made it worth the money alone. However, the guide was an archaeologist. She also knowledgeable, and explained everything so expertly, headed added another dimension to the to the trip. I was amazed at the depth of her knowledge - a real expert! We saw so much in a short time, and I'm sure I would not have learned so much without the guide. Well done!
Amazing tour. We went from the very floor of the colosseum where the gladiators and animals waited, Saw and understood how the manually hoisted elevators worked. Walked the " Walk of Death" where the gladiators entered the colosseum, like how a football team enters a stadium.Just stood there with a feeling of awesomeness and fear! Then climbed to the very top tier with steep steps.
After leaving the colosseum, we walked to the Roman Forum, the center of ancient Roman politics.A very long and fascinating tour.
Great way to see the highlights of Ancient Rome. Was much more meaningful with the help of our informative and entertaining guide. Highly recommended!
Our guide David was personable, engaging and knowledgeable. Skip the lines is the only way to go. David shared extensive history of the Colosseum, the Forum and the Palatine Hill. It was amazing to stand and walk around areas with so much history. David helped to bring what was left (the ruins) to life. This is a 3 hour tour with a lot of walking so be prepared. One of the best parts of our time in Rome and well worth it.
Our tour guide Rose was great, passionate and very knowlegeable. She brought the ruins to life for us. I would highly recommend this tour.
