Our guide Beatrice was wonderful! She was knowledgeable, and clearly very passionate about the history here. It was a COLD long day with a lot of walking, but she made everything so enjoyable that we were sad to see the day end. I would highly recommend this tour - and more than highly recommend Beatrice!

Our guide, whose name I have forgotten, very annoyingly as she was brilliant. So knowledgable and intelligent. She brought the sites to life! We did have a very rainy morning which could have dampened our enthusiasm but that didn't stop our overall enjoyment and, of course we would recommend this tour to everyone. It is a must!

Ended up being only 3 of us on the tour. Francesca was so knowledgeable and was a great tour leader! Having a small group, she was able to go into more details and spend more time with us in certain areas of the ruins, than we would of otherwise been able to.

The tour of the Colosseum and ancient Rome was wonderful! It was with Roma Experience Tours and Tizianni was our guide who was extremely knowledgeable of the history of ancient Rome. She was very friendly and a wealth of information. We highly recommend this tour and tour guide!

My wife and I did the tour on a Monday morning in March and ended up being the only people booked! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! We learned so much more than just about the ruins and buildings, she was able to tie in the history of the city, emperors, and modern day study to really help us visualize the area. Truly a one of a kind and intimate experience!!

We booked this tour well in advance and Vincenzo collect as agreed and and on time! He certainly enjoys his job and knows a thing or two about ancient Rome, people, culture and history ! Vincenzo has a way of conveying the very complex history of the area we walked through in a light-hearted way without turning us into history geeks. If I were to do it again I would choose Vincenzo as tour guide.
Thank you for a unforgettable day.

We had a fantastic tour. Our guide was the best ever. She was well informed as to the history of the area and was able to pass along that information in a very understandable manner. I would highly recommend Viator.

Our tour guide, Paula, did an excellent job of explaining the history of the ancient roman forums, palaces, temples, and Colosseum. She was one of the best tour guides we have ever had and really enhanced our Rome visit.

Vincenzo was a very well informed and thoughtful guide. He was also an excellent person to ask just about any question you had about Rome from traffic to politics. He was passionate about his subject and not afraid to have an opinion on it. We really enjoyed this tour. Brett
