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.

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.

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.

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!

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).

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.

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!

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.

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 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.
