Augustino was a fantastic tour guide! He was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, keeping us all entertained and at ease. The tour process was smooth and the headsets worked great. Loved the ease of getting around these 3 areas with guidance and minimal waiting. Would highly recommend this tour and guide!!

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.

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.

Great tour and great guide Alessandro, total recommend. I am not usually a-guided-tour-person, I prefer to wonder around and explore by myself at my own pace. But I am very glad I took this tour, because otherwise I would miss a lot and wouldn't know which way to go, where to look and what exactly I am looking at. Being able to hear the stories and context behind the monuments, gave this visit another dimension. I've learned a lot and really enjoyed.

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. Thank you!

A must do if you are in Rome. Our guide was Alessandra and she goes through every detail & answers any questions people have, you can really tell she loves the city history and wants to share her knowledge. She was also finding out where everyone in group was from and finding out names which was a nice touch, she made it a great experience for my first time in Rome.

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.

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.

This tour and tour guide was the best tour I’ve ever had! I didn’t know what to expect … but it wasn’t getting one of the funnest, SO interesting and knowledgeable experiences of my life! Aerion (sorry I can’t remember the spelling) was our tour guide and he just made our experience that much better. I could almost say he made the experience, he really did! … seeing the colosseum was so amazing! The information, the facts that we learned and were told, were the best in the world! Palatine Hill and the Forum was absolutely incredible! Please do a tour of these, you will have the time of your life!!!! - J. & S.

Elizabeth was an excellent guide. The tour was informative and went at a good pace. We were on holiday with our 10 year old son who enjoyed it too and didn't get bored. Having a small group meant we were all able to keep together and not waiting for people to catch up.
