Excellent experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable. She was very thorough and we really appreciated her descriptions and diagrams of what we were seeing today now looked like in the original form then. Nancy and Tom, San Francisco, CA

Our well informed and thoughtful guide Paulo was a master at opening spaces in the crowd for our group of 4 to see this magnificent structure. He knew the best vantage points, a lot of interesting facts and was an enjoyable narrator of the history of the people who lived at the time the Colosseum was used.

We thoroughly loved our private tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome. Our tour guide Michaela was informative and helpful. She had great info and was always willing to answer our questions. My wife and I felt fortunate to have a small, private tour when we saw so many large groups all around us. For us it was worth the extra money to have a one-on-one experience with a guide as opposed to the alternative.

Loved our tour. Individualized attention was really amazing at the Colosseum because of how crowded and loud it got in some spaces. Our guide was so passionate about the history and helped us to better understand life in Rome during the time of the Gladiators.

As the bells tolled the appointed hour, we met up with our guide to begin our journey through time at the Flavian Amphitheatre. Our guide's knowledge of and passion for the history of this site was evident as our guide took us back to roman times, allowing us to immerse ourselves in the sense of the site. As we wandered the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum, we were made to feel the presence of those who lived centuries past.
My wife uses a travel scooter for mobility issues and she missed little, as she was well accommodated.
A must-do tour of Ancient Rome.

I wish i could rate this a 6 star. The tour was amazing. Saw lots of other tours with unto 30 people. Our guide Maria Rosaria arrived for a private tour with just the two of us. go early to avoid crowds on a sunday She was so Knowledgeable and she really did help us to skip the queue's , so didn't waste any time. Her respect for her countries history was humbling. She made the trip so interesting with lots of knowledge and could answer all our questions. We would not have enjoyed this trip if it wasn't for Maria.After the coliseum we walked to the roman forum and the pallatine hills... We truly made a journey through History thanks to her. Hope to return with my family to repeat very soon.
