Traveling with two teenagers. I'm not kidding, this was worth EVERY PENNY!! Our tour guide, Vincenzo, was a student of restoration on the Colosseum and the Forum so he had little known facts and interesting information he'd learned in class. My teenage kids were walking next to him and asking him questions, he was so engaging. He took care of us too - found a way around a long line for immediate entry to the Colosseum. Case in point, it's almost 4 months later and I just asked my son the tour guide's name and without hesitation he said Vincenzo - he definitely made an impression!
This was a great tour. We didn and #39;t link what to expect as we did not have any specific request for our guide and just wanted to learn more about the history. We had Amanda as a guide and we totally recommend her! If you want The REAL story of the colosseum, learn what matters, this would be the tour!
Vencenzio was the best guide we could have asked for. His depth of knowledge was impressive and his ability to transfer that knowledge to us made the tour fantastic. We recommend this tour and especially Vencenzio to everyone.
Our guide was patient and knowledgeable. Passionate and enthusiastic. My mom is handicapped and used a walker on the tour and our guide was extremely patient and accomodating
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating and her presentation of the history of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome made the physical evidence come alive.
We were 2 couples and this was superb. Our guide, Angela, a local, was brilliant. She was easy to understand, helpful and friendly and open to what we wanted to see with excellent suggestions. We entered the Colosseum quickly through the express lane, despite there being long queues patiently waiting to get in.
She took us from the Colosseum to Palatine Hill and then the Forum. We found it a great way to see what we did as our stay in Rome was limited. With just 4 in the group, we moved far more quickly then we would have with a larger group. We are very happy we chose this way of seeing Ancient Rome
This tour was outstanding! Our tour guide, Irene, was an expert, having majored in art history at the university. During our walk, she helped us understand how the history of the area helped shape the present, and helped us imagine what it must have been like when the gladiatorial games were held in the Colosseum and the Caesars and Cleopatra, for example, walked the same paths we were. We did indeed manage to skip the lines with her help. This tour is a super value for anyone wanting to make the most of their Rome trip. I highly recommend it.
Outstanding tour and tour guide. Extremely educational and enjoyable.
Highly recommend this one!
We had a great tour of the colosseum, forum and palatine hill with a private guide booked through Viator. Our guide whose name I unfortunately can't remember was a PhD in archaeology who had worked on some of the areas nearby so she was a real wealth of knowledge! The check-in process was flawless although on first glance it looked like kindof a nightmare with all the people waiting in line!, and we waited just a couple minutes to check in , then we were handed off directly to our guide with no other delays! Based on this tour, I would book again with this company without hesitation.
Elena was great! She spoke wonderful English and was extremely knowledgeable. She had. A great personality. Elena really made our first day in Rome special!
Luciano, our guide, knew just about everything about the Colosseum, the Pallatino, The Forum, and everywhere else we went in our 4 1/2 hour tour through ancient Rome.
We can not speak highly enough of his dedication to our interests, and attention to detail.
Everyone should take a tour of this nature, never mind that it is rather costly, it's certainly worth the cost.
Our was a private tour with Lisa!!! Wonderful very enthusiastic and entertaining!!
Tour guide was great! Saw lots of beautiful views and learned a lot about ancient Rome. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and very accommodating with flexibility in the schedule.
Not only did Teresa bring history to life, she also gave great tips for touring Rome. Thank you!
Our guide, Maria Luisa, was very knowledgable and a pleasure to spend over three hours with. Her English was excellent, and the information she imparted added enormously to what we had learned before. We have travelled in many different countries and had many different guides. She was among the very best. We would not hesitate to book with Context tours again.
Alessio gave us a fantastic private tour! Extremely knowledgable and a pleasure to have a our guide! Highly recommended! Ciao!
This tour was fabulous and our guide was extremely knowledgeable. Even though we had to trudge through rain, mud and rivers of water, I highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Barbara, went above and beyond to please us. Fran
