Lorenzo was extremely knowledgeable and personable as he walked us through history. We could really visualize the events of the past. Lorenzo did not rush through the tour, but gave us just the right amount of information to keep it interesting. Well worth the time!

Highly recommended tour. Our guide, Alessandra, was excelent - very knowledgable and qualified as well as passionate about the topic. She was also friendly and genuine and made this tour a great experience. In my view, it is worth it to pay a bit extra to have a smaller group (max 10 people).

Eni was great today! Such a sweet and informative tour guide. He had so much history to share with us, it was fascinating. I especially loved going up to the Roman Forum and getting beautiful views of the Colloseum from the hill. It‘s a lot of walking and 3 hours so make sure you bring water and good shoes! It wasn’t too much though. Only complaint is that I would of liked more free time at the Colloseum to explore and take photos. Other then that, all round great tour guide and experience. T...

We had a really enjoyable and informative morning with the amazing Eni. What an encyclopaedic mind, and the guy is funny too. A perfect combination. The meeting point was easy to find thanks to your instructions and being in a group tour meant we got in everywhere quicker. Would highly recommend. Thank you

This was a very in-depth tour that was informative and gave great photo opportunities around the Colosseum and atop Palatine Hill overlooking the Roman Forum. Tour guide was enjoyable, patient yet moved the group along in a timely fashion and was able to answer all questions.

Our family had a thoroughly brilliant afternoon touring these amazing sites in Rome, led by the brilliant Lorenzo who was an incredible font of knowledge regarding all the sites we visited, he answered all questions and had a great sense of humour. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

We had a great time seeing the colosseum. Our guide Lucia was great! We went on a Sunday. Keep in mind the other museums are closed on Sundays so this is the busiest day for the colosseum. If your going on Sunday you will not see much without a guide, it is way too packed.

We had an amazing tour with Alessandro, who was a very experienced guide who welcomed us. He had a clear passion for being a tour guide and put all his energy in, he even had a book where we could see some illustration of how it would look like in the past. We spent a perfect amount of time in the Colosseum to see everything, and ended in the Forum. This was on my bucket list for years and thank you again for making it perfect.

Overall pretty good experience. Our tour guide was knowledgeable but not very personable. Learned a lot but next time I don’t think I would do a 3 hour tour. Also it was hard to hear in the headset. We were given one headphone and not 2 and there was not volume adjust button. But overall not a bad experience.

Eni was literally a fountain of information about the history of the Colosseum and its environs. He is a an exemplary tour guide who has been continurally learning for the past 10 years. I can't imagine having a better guide. I am certain he told us things that nobody else would notice or know. We had enough time to stop and take photos; he was sensitive to the needs of everyone and answered all our questions.
