Great tour lead by our tour guide Barbara. She spoke good English and had an excellent knowledge of Ancient Rome. Skip the line tickets are well worth the money as ques are big and you can spend a lot of time waiting out in the sun. Happy with tour and will recommend it to friends and family.
Tour was awesome even tough it was really hot the day we went. our guide was really informative and we saw a lot in three hours. would have liked to have spent a little longer at the coliseum but understand we had to get to the forum and Palatine hill.
Sara was a fantastic tour guide. Very easy to listen to and understand, provided more than enough information about ancient Rome. It was quite hot when we went in June so wear something cool and comfortable to walk around in. Fantastic tour, best way to cover the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palentine's hill. Highly recommend!!
Take the first tour in the morning like we did. Not a lot of people. But when you leave the Colosseum there will be thousands waiting in line. The guide was great and knowledgeable.
This was our favorite tour in Italy. The Colosseum and Palatine Hill were amazing! Our guide Barbara was the best! she really made the history and story of the area and structures come alive. This is a must do while in Rome, and try to get in Barbara's group if at all possible!
Elizabeth was great! Really nice and knew all about the story of the sites.
Sarah was awesome, what a privilege to have archaeologist as a tour guy, I just wish she could have made the weather less hot!!!!
Marina was our tour guide. A sweet, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic guide! She is actually an archeologist!
This tour was fantastic! Sara N. was our guide and she was very informative. Her presentation was very thorough and easy to understand. She provided us with many details, but was able to keep everyone engaged. She was very upbeat and made us want to learn more about Italy.
We loved this tour. Our guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all questions and made the tour a lot of fun!!
Unfortunately, we got lost and missed the meeting point of this 3pm, 3 hour tour. I was most upset missing this as the Colosseum is HUGE and bus stops were a bit confusing so we were on the wrong side, very hot and flustered. However, the booking staff were SUPER lovely and understanding and booked us into a Family Tour, which was only 2 hrs and at 4pm. Despite many times we were discouraged to attend the Family Tour by 3 staff, the guide accepted we were happy to go on any tour and accommodated us. There was a family of Mum, Dad and young boy and girl and Us. The guide was most informative, encouraging to us all. It was such a lovely Tour I would definitely recommend this to others with children. After our long walk getting lost and it was a hot day, the tour walking distance and timeframe was perfect. Matrina? I think her name was, was a lovely guide. No negative comments. Enjoyed everything.
A serious thumbs up!
Serafina was our guide through these amazing places. Well informed, fun and able to manage her group of 20 very effectively. It was quite hot, so finding shade whenever possible was critical. One of the most amazing places we have ever visited - Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Forum, Priceless ! Well worth the investment.
It was beyond my expectations. Our tour guide Alessandro is an archeologist who provide very factual insights into the relics we were seeing. It more than met my roman knowledge and I would highly recommend this tour for any tourist or native roman

Sarah was great! She was very pleasant and knowledgeable. It was a hot day and she made sure we had water and if possible shade.
This was the best tour I have ever done. Alexandrio had amazing knowledge, fabulous enthusiasm and a great method of sharing his information. A really fabulous day
Our tour guide took his time and did not rush us during this very interesting tour of ancient Rome including the Colosseum. The headphones worked perfectly and made it easy to hear and understand our guide who spoke excellent English and helped us learn several wonderful facts about this historic and glorious place. I highly recommend this tour.
