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'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.

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.

I like the tour but I thought it would be a 8 hour tour and is not is divide in to two different tour one in the morning and one in the afternoon by the way be prepared to find yourself to the second part because the tour person don't take you there so me and my mom had to take a cab over since is not very close and we didn't wanted to get loss another thing you have to pay a non- refundable deposit for the head piece for the second part of the tour overall it was good but if could be better if they don't divide the tours.....

A good tour while in Rome. The only downside was the amount of walking. They could use a shuttle to transport in between the colosseum and Vatican.

Our tour guide for the Colosseum was almost a half hour late but, she was pleasant and informative. It was great to have a tour guide because we would have missed a lot of stuff. In the afternoon, our tour guide for the Vatican was good as well.

Coloseum tour was good. Great guide.
Separate Vatican tour and guide less impressive. Very mechanical and a bit rushed.

I had high expectations based on the reviews and the price. I would choose another company in the future. Our guide was very nice but did give enough info about what we were seeing or the history. we used a different company inFlorence for a fraction of the price and it was much better.

This tour was a complete waste of money the morning tour was very average with not a lot of time in the coloseum and the afternoon tour of the Vatican museum was terrible the guide spoke very poor English and we could not understand her at all and unfortunately St. Peter's bascilia was closed but they did not even take us over there and give any commentary it at all
