The guide was lovely friendly, informative, articulate. A great way for a first-timer to get a handle on these overwhelming monuments in a couple of hours, even - especially - for our 9 year old! Definitely worth the outlay.

A great tour led by Chiara, she gave us fascinating insights into the history of the colosseum and the Roman forum. Her cheerful attitude and helpful nature meant that we had an unforgettable tour of an amazing place from an experienced and knowledgable guide. The history of the area is stunning and Chiara brought it to life for us all. Thanks Chiari, Jame and Ian.

Our tour guide Irena I think was fabulous! Very knowledgeable and personable. Despite the heat and humidity of July in Rome, it was very pleasant. If I could request her for a future tour I absolutely would!

This tour aside from the greatness of the setting is dependent on the knowledge and presentation of the guide and Francesca's knowledge and ability to communicate that knowledge was exceptional.

After missing our tram and having to catch an Uber to make it there on time, we were pleasantly surprised to meet the same guide that we had the day before at the Vatican. We knew Lucia was a fantastic guide so we were super excited for this tour, and she did not disappoint.

We loved exploring the Colosseum and hearing about the events that took place there. It really is breathtaking inside - and Lucia took us to the best spots for photos. The Roman Forum is equally as fascinating, as you can actually see the layers of the lasagne of Rome as they have excavated the ruins.

We picked the 9am tour and I'm glad we did. It got REALLY hot towards the end of the tour with the afternoon sun beating down, so I wouldn't want to go in the afternoon!

This tour is a MUST if you are in Rome!!
