Our tour guide was amazing. He had incredible knowledge of all the sites and the history. He was also very enthusiastic and energetic. Only criticism was that the tour ran long. The Colosseum and Forum portion of the tour were perfect. We felt like we spent 2x the time needed on Palatine Hill.

Great way to beat the line, though Colosseum staff would not let our tour guide talk in the underground area. very disappointing.

Our tour guide, Jessica, was very knowledgeable and provided excellent insights as to what it was like to be a participant or spectator at the Colosseum events, explained fact vs fiction. The underground tour was impressive with it’s special exhibition of gladiators costumes and helmets. Would recommend to anyone interested in this unique aspect of Roman history.

Fabrizio was an amazing tour guide. We normally aren't a fan of group types because there are inevitably difficult members in the type group; this your was an exception because of his knowledge base and patience. At first I was concerned about the tour ending too quickly, (I thought I had read somewhere that the tour was only 1.5 hours) but despite how briskly the group moved I felt like we still saw everything. Again, Fabrizio is a significant asset to your organization and he made this for well worth the investment. The only major complaint I have is that the earpieces to the radios were pretty uncomfortable and the radios worked inconsistently and had a period where there was interference/bleed through from another tour guide.

Our tour guide was the absolute sweetest! I am sorry I don’t remember her name but she was born in Rome and knows such an unbelievable amount about the history and has such a love for the city. She was so kind, gracious and caring!! She is what made this your!! Also if this is posted please, please, please tip your your guides.
