Georgia, our tour guide was really amazing. The history of the collosseum is fascinating and there were a lot of interesting stories to listen to. The lovely props that she used allowed us to form a good picture of what life was like in those days and how it was all built. There was a small child in our group and Georgia included her in everything to keep her entertained and even had puzzles for her to do.

Outstanding guide! Tour company kept in close touch with us before the trip to verify our meeting place so we were never left, just hoping it would all work out.
