This was our favorite tour of the few that we had been on! Our tour guide, Alessandra, was amazing, accommodating and really knew the city and how to think on her feet! The tour had an unexpected closure due to a strike that was happening that day and she was able to whip something up to show us instead! She took us around different parts of Rome and had SO MUCH information to tell us! The tour was only supposed to last 3 hours and because she wanted us to have the full Rome experience she let whoever wanted to continue the tour stick around for an extra 2-3 hours! She was amazing and I highly recommend this company and these tours!

Our tour guide was the absolute best. She had a masters degree in archeology and had actually worked on some of the archeological sites in Rome. She had a contagious enthusiasm for her subject and really wanted to share it with us. Skip the line great but the best was her oresentation

As an archaeology buff, this was a must do experience that exceeded already high expectations. Seeing the colosseum and the forums, and learning their stories on site, created a feeling of awe and wonder that can't be experienced in any other way. The fact that our guide, Alessandra, was herself a professional archaeologist of the classic period added enormously to the experience. She was wonderful.

This tour included the underground area of the Colosseum which added an element of awe to the visit.

We had a fantastically good 3 hour trip. No long queue for the tickets and a private guide for the two of us. I did not realise that I had arranged for that rather than a group tour but am very glad I did. Our guide was brilliant: well informed took everything at the right pace and was a joy to be with. Quite a lot of walking - but that is because there is a great deal to see. All fascinating and excellently explained.

Christina was a fantastic tour guide! She was so very knowledgeable about the Colosseum and The Forum. I would highly recommend a private tour with her if you can-you will not be disappointed!

Amanda, our private tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about the times and history about the Romans who lived centuries ago. Her explanations of the times went beyond just the historical perspective as she helped us appreciate the lives and challenges of those that walked the streets of Rome over 2000 years ago. Her perspective and knowledge of Rome throughout the centuries was astonishing.

Ms. Selenia was a wonderful guide, knowledgable and very personable. She spoke excellent English, and gave us a very in-depth tour and education about the antiquities we toured. We highly recommend this tour and Ms. Selenia.

Our guide was perfect! She was an archeologist so very knowledgeable and thorough while still being interesting and fun!! We had so many tours on our trip, unfortunately I can and #39;t remember her name, but she was from Rome, and we couldn and #39;t have been more happy with her!!

This tour was amazing!! Our tour guide Gulia sorry if I have spelt it wrong! was so lovely and patient and a wealth of knowledge, not just in the main historical facts but also in unusual and interesting details. My fiancée and I had hardly any knowledge of each site we visited but Gulia has these wonderful books with her which showed pictures of how it looks now and then she pulled over a transparent page with an artists impression of how it once looked. I couldnt recommend this tour enough as its so great to have the personal touch rather than listening to an audio tour. Also skipping the queues will help save you time so you can enjoy more of the sights of Rome!!

Our tour guide was very knowledgable and patient. I learned so much that had to do with the history of Rome, which could be applied to sites I saw later during my time in the eternal city. Worth every penny.

Davee was an incredible tour guide. We went all over and he took us to the top of the hill, and explained everything about each area. He was fun and engaging and we really enjoyed our time with him.

Traveling with two teenagers. I'm not kidding, this was worth EVERY PENNY!! Our tour guide, Vincenzo, was a student of restoration on the Colosseum and the Forum so he had little known facts and interesting information he'd learned in class. My teenage kids were walking next to him and asking him questions, he was so engaging. He took care of us too - found a way around a long line for immediate entry to the Colosseum. Case in point, it's almost 4 months later and I just asked my son the tour guide's name and without hesitation he said Vincenzo - he definitely made an impression!

This was a great tour. We didn and #39;t link what to expect as we did not have any specific request for our guide and just wanted to learn more about the history. We had Amanda as a guide and we totally recommend her! If you want The REAL story of the colosseum, learn what matters, this would be the tour!

Vencenzio was the best guide we could have asked for. His depth of knowledge was impressive and his ability to transfer that knowledge to us made the tour fantastic. We recommend this tour and especially Vencenzio to everyone.
