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.
Guide provided information essential to understand an appreciate the structures.
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.
Our guide was patient and knowledgeable. Passionate and enthusiastic. My mom is handicapped and used a walker on the tour and our guide was extremely patient and accomodating
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating and her presentation of the history of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome made the physical evidence come alive.
We were 2 couples and this was superb. Our guide, Angela, a local, was brilliant. She was easy to understand, helpful and friendly and open to what we wanted to see with excellent suggestions. We entered the Colosseum quickly through the express lane, despite there being long queues patiently waiting to get in.
She took us from the Colosseum to Palatine Hill and then the Forum. We found it a great way to see what we did as our stay in Rome was limited. With just 4 in the group, we moved far more quickly then we would have with a larger group. We are very happy we chose this way of seeing Ancient Rome
This tour was outstanding! Our tour guide, Irene, was an expert, having majored in art history at the university. During our walk, she helped us understand how the history of the area helped shape the present, and helped us imagine what it must have been like when the gladiatorial games were held in the Colosseum and the Caesars and Cleopatra, for example, walked the same paths we were. We did indeed manage to skip the lines with her help. This tour is a super value for anyone wanting to make the most of their Rome trip. I highly recommend it.
Outstanding tour and tour guide. Extremely educational and enjoyable.
Highly recommend this one!
We had a great tour of the colosseum, forum and palatine hill with a private guide booked through Viator. Our guide whose name I unfortunately can't remember was a PhD in archaeology who had worked on some of the areas nearby so she was a real wealth of knowledge! The check-in process was flawless although on first glance it looked like kindof a nightmare with all the people waiting in line!, and we waited just a couple minutes to check in , then we were handed off directly to our guide with no other delays! Based on this tour, I would book again with this company without hesitation.
Elena was great! She spoke wonderful English and was extremely knowledgeable. She had. A great personality. Elena really made our first day in Rome special!
Luciano, our guide, knew just about everything about the Colosseum, the Pallatino, The Forum, and everywhere else we went in our 4 1/2 hour tour through ancient Rome.
We can not speak highly enough of his dedication to our interests, and attention to detail.
Everyone should take a tour of this nature, never mind that it is rather costly, it's certainly worth the cost.
