With only a day to see as many sights as possible, this tour was wonderful. Two couples with a private tour guide - fantastic!
Guides were excellent and the tour offered a great opportunity for an overview of Rome. It is a lot of walking but that is the best way to see everything. Could have better suggestions for transfer to the Vatican area.
What a fantastic tour of the Colosseum/Forum/Pantheon/Piazza Navona! Lena was the absolute best guide we could've asked for. She was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and genuinely loves her city and it's history. She was impressive with her historical facts and we learned a tremendous amount from touring with her. Our afternoon tour guide for the Vatican was not as good as Lena. While she provided the headsets so we could hear everything she was saying. Even while she was walking and we could not see her, she continued speaking and sharing history. The Vatican guide did not want to use the headsets which he said we needed to get from the museum itself. We could hardly hear him over all the other tourists/groups. It was frustrating to not be able to hear the history. He pointed out a select few details, and overall we just weren't impressed. I would HIGHLY recommend asking for Lena if you do this tour, which is truly worth every dollar.
Really good, Helena and Andrea were excellent as tour guides, skipping queues was fab as even in May the places were heaving. A lot of money but definitely worth it
Absolutely unforgettable tours with guides that seemed to have encyclopedic knowledge of both the Colosseum and Vatican.
Cannot recommend it enough. Small group, friendly and interesting guides. Even our 12 year old stayed fully engaged for the full 8 hour day! It's more than a month later and we're still reflecting on all that we saw and learned on our insightful tour.
If you're hesitating, DON'T! We would do this same exact tour over again in a heartbeat. It's a bit expensive, but for the knowledgeable guides, fast pass entrances and engaging guides...it's absolutely worth it.
Skip everything else and take this tour!
THANK YOU! My family and I will remember it for all our lives.
We lucked out by finding this tour. My wife and I were very impressed by the tour guides' knowledge for both the Roman history and the Vatican. The lady who toured us through the Colosseum and other Roman historical sites was literally a Roman Archeologist! who could ask for more!! And our Vatican guide was a Roman art major! They were both awesome beyond words! Thank you and I definitely recommend this tour - 5-stars for sure.
The Colosseum/Ancient Rome Tour in the morning was unreal, our guide Elena gave us a new found appreciation of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. She was able to give us the big picture of all of Rome's history. Our favorite metaphor we use now is, Rome is like a lasagna, it has layers and layers built on each other.
That afternoon we did the Vatican tour with our other guide, Lorena I hope we got it right. There it was eye boggling the museum itself. If it wasn't for our guide to keep us in path we might have gotten lost or spent hours at just one area and not be able to see the rest of the many rooms. Her passion of the architecture, history, and arts made us be grateful for where we were at the time.
Laura De Angelis was our tour guide, she is very knowledgeable and detailed it was a very good experience.
Our tour guide was very knowledgable. We learned so much and it was so much fun!
Our tour guide was Helena for the morning portion of the tour. She is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Ancient Rome. This was a small group tour of inky 4 adults. i recommend this tour.
