Our guide Sara N was absolutely brilliant . She really knew her subject and made everything really interesting .
We loved our experience on this tour. Just enough stops for pictures and enough time in both Amalfi and Positano. Our driver, Khan, was very knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. Would definitely recommend!
The tour was amazing made all the better by our guide who was highly knowledgeable, friendly and patient (useful when the group kept looking round in amazement). The use of headsets linked to her microphone meant we could easily hear the references on historical scenarios. Brilliant trip.
Serena was such a great tour guide. Despite the heat, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Very informative. It was nice to get in around the crazy queues! Best way to see the Colosseum.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny...we both had been at the Colosseum but had done the tour on our own. It does make a difference to have a good tour guide.
Excellent guide nice not having to wait in that long line well worth the expense
Directions were great on where to meet the tour guide. Our guide had actually done digs at the Roman Forum, so she was able to add some great color for all of us.
I've been to Rome many times, but my family is not interested in guided tours. We've visited the Palatine Hill, but we left feeling that we didn't really understand the ruins, nor their significance. So, this time, when I was by myself, I booked this tour at the last minute. I was very happy with my choice. The guide, Francesca, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, and told us so many interesting things about the Colosseum, the Forum, the Palatine Hill, and the temple of the Vestal Virgins. The weather, being mid-day in July, was naturally very hot, but she tried very hard to find shade for us, and was able to answer all our questions. I also met many nice people on the tour as well. I don't want to share all the details she told us - you should go on this tour yourself. But I will say that afterwards. I was able to recognise an ancient Roman wall from my AirBnB.
Excellent tour. Guide very knowledgeable and friendly. Value for money.
This was THE BEST GUIDED tour ever. Sara Napolitani, an archeologist, and lucky for all of Us a Tour Guide.
The tour is spectacular but you only travel through time and absorb every fact, name and date when your tour guide makes the experience unforgettable....
Thank you Sara and thank you World tours for such an experience.
I would do it all over again.
The Colosseum tour was great. You need to jump the cue's as they stretch for ages. The guides are great also giving you not only information but plenty of photos to give you looks at how things look before originally.
we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge and answered everyones questions articulately. Highly recommend this tour.
Forget every Hollywood sword-and-sandals movie you've ever seen. Instead, book a tour of these ancient ruins and discover the FACTS about their history. Our tour guide was Elizabeta and she was absolutely superb. A qualified archaeologist, she had been personally involved in excavations in the area around the Colosseum. She led the tour with passion, authority, friendliness and humour.
If you're 'on the fence' about whether to book a tour, don't be. Otherwise you'll be one of those tourists who wander around in a daze because they have no idea what they're looking at. The Colosseum, Forum and Palatine have little-to-no signage, and you really do need some expertise to make sense of it all.
Some further tips:
1 Book the earliest tour you can, before the heat gets unbearable
2 Wear comfortable shoes and take a bottle of water
3 Bring comfortable earphones to use instead of the ones supplied
4 Go with an enquiring mind and ask questions
Oh, and PLEASE leave your dreadful selfie sticks at home. You already have two selfie sticks - they're called ARMS.
Maura was an excellent guide. It was easy to find the group and she made sure we all stayed together. We could hear her well with a headset. Showed all the sights with great commentary as we went along. You will miss lots of things to see and explanations if you don't do a tour. She was very well informed
Excellent tour! well worth the price considering the long lines. In addition you are free to stay on in the Forum after the tour for the remainder of the day if desired.
Our guide, Damiano, was excellent. He provided a thoroughly enjoyable and educational experience. We got exactly what we were hoping for--a good look at the Coloseo and the Fora Romano, and lots of information that only an educated historian/archaeologist like Damiano could provide. I would always recommend stopping for a toilet break before leaving the coloseum. We did that. Thank you!!
Guide was fantastic and well knowledgeable. Directions for finding location to meet were easy to follow.
Our tour guide was excellent. She does this daily and studied archeology so she knew everything about the Colosseum and roman forum.
great experience brought to life by an intelligent, knowledegable and funny guide, it brought so many interesting facts and highlighted things you would miss by yourself, absolutely reccommend
Great tour. This was a very good way to discover the city in a different active way. Our guide Allessandra was very good and knowledgeable. I recommend it to anyone.
Our guide, Danielle, was awesome. He was very personable and attentive to everyone's experience. You have a great employee in Danielle.
Our guide was amazing. She was so well educated on all the happenings in and around the Colosseum and did a great job sharing this knowledge. The ability to skip a long line in the hot sun was great. Bring plenty of water and a hat. Highly highly recommend the tour and our guide!!
This was a terrific tour. Our guide was informative and interesting - filled with all sorts of information one would not get from just walking around. She made the Colosseum, Forum and Palantine Hill fascinating. Despite the heat, we didn't leave the tour early. Just great.
