Very informative guides who were very professional and friendly. Tour was easy walking and the guide for the Palatine Hill part was an archaeologist who just had so much information. Such a great place to visit and you will get more from having a guide than walking by yourself. Do it.

The pre-tour process was well organised and unrushed. This was a comprehensive, informative and enjoyable tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Both guides held our attention for the duration of the 3 hour tour and despite it being a hot August afternoon, they each in turn sought out shaded spots to deliver their talks. Being comfortable made it easier for us to absorb the history and atmosphere of the location.

This tour was great. Our guide Sam was very charming and considerate of everyone in our group. He made sure we stayed together and provided great information throughout. The tour was exactly three hours and it was plenty of time in each place. We did not feel rushed or hurried. We went right in and did not have to wait in the long line. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. It is a lot of walking.

We were fortunate enough to have a fantastic guide on this day, not only was he very informative, had great knowledge but was quite entertaining at times. Really knew how to make our large group feel like a small flock, watching a great entertainer / lecturer at work. Brilliant!!!!
