We had a mistake in what type of tour we expected. The tour leader and staff of Dark Rome saw to it that this issue was resolved. This tour was outstanding! The quality and knowledge of the tour leader was wonderful. The contracted tour company exceeded our expectations. A Great Day!
What a wonderful day we had! Just my wife and I with Annalisa, The Closseum and ancient Rome! My wife has some back and knee issues and Lisa was able to adapt the walk to make it easier for her without sacrificing any of the quality of the tour. She has brilliant recall of large amounts of information about everything there is to see on this tour, and there is a lot! It is obvious that she loves Rome and its ancient sites and has spent a great deal of time learning the history of the city. I couldn't possibly tell you all the history she shared about The Colosseum,The Forum and Palatine Hill but I can tell you that she was animated, interesting, engaging and able to answer any question we had about the area. There is a lot to see on this tour and the experience could not have been the same with a large group of people, or wasting the day standing in line. Most importantly, I don't know that it would have been as great an experience with another guide. I'm sure all the guides are good, but I don't think any other guide could be more kind or more in love with her subject and eager to share its history. Thank you Lisa for an unforgettable experience!
This was a wonderful tour with a charming young Italian guide, very knowledgeable of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. I highly recomend the private tour, else the noise, hustle and bustle would be very distracting in either venue. Our guide was also able to personally address our questions and really personalized our tour.
This was a fantastic way to see the Colosseum and the Forum. Our guide, Patrizia, was really knowledgeable and she brought the ruins to life for us. Our experience was so much more enjoyable because of her explanations and our kids were fascinated by her tales of Roman history. There is virtually no tourist information on display and so, without a good guide, a trip to the Forum could have been quite disappointing; instead, it was the highlight of our trip.
Very good tour highlighting Ancient Rome. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate. The only odd point was that I am not sure whether this was art history or just history.
Our whole group loved the tour, Marta was passionate about her work and made it very enjoyable! She was by far the best guide of the three tours we took, and she made the tour that much more enjoyable.
Excellant tour guide. We learned a lot. Very well organized. You might want to read up the Forum so you have a general overview.
This was definitely the best way to do this - our tour guide was fantastic and once again so knowledgeable - there is a lot of walking - so unless your fit I wouldn't attempt it.
Marta was an amazing guide!!! I would highly recommend her!!!!!!! Marta's knowledge of Ancient Rome made the tour come to life. Thank you.
Extraordinary, we was always interested in the explanaition of the guide, she has a good experience about the place.
An excellent tour. Mary Grace was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and made the history come alive.
This is a fabulous way to tour the Collosseum and and ancient ruins of Rome. Our guide Marta was passionate and knowledgeable on the history of old Rome and provided us with a great commentary while we explored the sites. Without her instruction and aids, we would not have been able to visualize what ancient Rome was like. Definitely worth the ticket price. One suggestion is to provide a marked up photo of the meeting site so first timers to Rome can more easily spot the tour guides at these busy venues.
