      Views and History

      The guide itself was knowledgeable but I felt dwelled in a few areas longer then needed. I also wanted to explore on my own but it seems like the only way now a days to get into historical sites is through a guide. For that reason I suggest signing up with them. We did get headsets to be able to hear her so I was grateful for that.
      Awesome and educational

      This was an amazing tour. Giovanni P. led us through history with immense knowledge. He has two masters degrees in Roman history and it was evident in his factual storytelling. This tour and our guide were well worth the time and money invested. Thank you Giovanni P. for teaching is about the Colusseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum.

      The tour was great, and like many other reviews, too much to see in the allotted time. If you have the time, just do a Colosseum tour on its own and separate the Forum and Hill. If not, then the 2.5-3hr tour is perfect to get a little bit of everything in. Guide spoke perfectly good English, provided great history and knowledge, and answered everyone's questions. It was a beautiful day and the guide allowed a few minutes here and there for pictures throughout the tour. You can stay in the Forum & Hill after the tour is over, but re-entry to the Colosseum was not possible once you leave. No complaints at all!

      We went during a heat wave in Europe. Despite the heat, It was a good tour. Tour guides seemed to read from books. But they were nice and professional. Small group tour - we were able to see so much.
      Lovely tour, I’m glad I didn’t go without a guide.

      Great tour! Our guide was knowledgeable and made sure we didn’t fall behind. I was engaged the whole time. She was also patient with the elderly people in our group which was nice.
      A very educational day of sight seeing

      Our guide Ariana (Ari) was exceptionally well versed in the history of the colosseum and nearby ancient buildings and structures. The story she told was quite fascinating. She was very patient and had safety in mind first with the group of 25 tourists, for washroom breaks, drinking water, stairs, the sun and shade and the cobblestone pavements we walked on..
      Our guides name was...

      Our guides name was Eleanor on this tour. Eleanor was exceptional in her presentation of facts as well as a bit of humor in her narrative. Best regards, D. Fulton.
      A must for history buffs

      I didn’t do much research about the Colosseum beforehand, but this tour made me feel like I didn’t need to anyway. The tour guide was very polite, funny and knowledgeable. You learn and see quite a lot during this tour. I advise everyone to bring their own water bottle since it’s been warm, you’ll walk a lot and there are water stations throughout where you can fill your bottle. Overall, this was a wonderful experience.
      Horrible experience
      Siracusamelissa, Oct 2023
      I am sorry, but this tour and guide are just terrible. Please look at another guide service to book, there are so many others that are good; don’t waste your money on this company. The guides are rushed and rude.
      Great Tour!
      Bruno_S, Sep 2023
      Very knowledgeable guide and very friendly. Kept the tour moving and tried to stay away from other groups.
      Great experience.
      Beatrice_D, Sep 2023
      I have been there before. This was far more comprehensive and sharing with my husband. Could have done with whisper as it was a large Tour.
      Hayley_M, Sep 2023
      One of the best tours to do! Our tour guide was amazing and made the whole experience very interesting.
      Great tour of an amazing place
      John_B, Sep 2023
      We toured the Coliseum and the Forum/Palatine Hill Our guide Valentina was very knowledgeable I am a frugal person and would usually avoid tours like this and just buy general admission but I when I went through these places I wanted to hear the details from somebody that knew what they were talking about. It was very interesting and I would highly recommend them.
      Great tour guide!
      Cynthia_W, Sep 2023
      The Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill are worth seeing, but the tour made it much more interesting. Valentina was amazing, very knowledgeable and handled our group competently and professionally. She was willing to answer questions and fill in anything we needed. She also made sure we had water stops on a hot day! We would really recommend her as our tour guide!
