Francesca was well informed, funny, and always smiling. She obviously loves her job, and was so much fun as a guide. We were running late and the tour company bent over backwards to allow us to join them and make us feel welcome. The tour was well paced, with lots of opportunities to take pictures and ask questions. She also had great visual aids, including her 'magic book' with all kinds of great pictures to help us envision the sites as they would have been. Overall a great tour. The only t...

We had a fantastic time!! Our guide Lumi was hilarious and we loved her humor. She was very informative and her pacing was awesome. She made sure that everyone got to stand in the shade or sit down when possible. We did the arena tour which was cool to be on the ground floor.

This was a good tour overall, we started off with roman forum and palatine Hill and got access to the arena and collosseum with skip the line entry. Our guide was a lovely lady and explained everything well and went into details about some of the history. The only hiccup was that we got lost in the crowd before entering the colloseum and while we had the radios active it was very difficult to find the group and guide given hundreds of people are pushing you and trying to enter. We eventually ...

As with most tours, your tour guide makes or breaks the tour. Our guide (name started with a D- maybe Daniel or Dennis?) was fantastic! He was an archeologist and had broad knowledge about the Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. He was able to answer all of the many questions he was asked. We ended up booking this tour at the last second because another tour company canceled our tour with Underground the day before (bummer!) but we were very glad we did this tour.

The tour was really good and Stefano, our guide, was personable and very knowledgeable. The headset radios were not great and the sound kept breaking up. It was also a shame there was no option for the earring impaired available. The tour ran smoothly except one incident at the entrance to the Colosseum where it appeared there was a discrepancy between number of adult and concession tickets that had been purchased. After about 15 mins this was sorted and unfortunately one person had to leave ...

We signed up on the day of the tour and did not know what to expect. Marcius was amazing. He was better than the private professional guides we had earlier on our trip. He brought such an engaging energy that drew you in with his vivid descriptions of how life was 2000 years ago. We highly recommend the tour and Marcius. Grazie!

An amazing tour, definitely worth seeing these sites with a guide to get the best experience. The knowledge and interactivity of our guide Yuri helped make the experience much more memorable! The Colosseum really was the main event however the Forums and Palatine Hill were just as interesting and beautiful.

Dennis was our tour guide and he was awesome! Very professional, knowledgeable, and kind. Accommodated to the group’s needs throughout the tour. He knew a lot of the history and made visiting the Roman Forum / Palatine Hill / Coliseum much more enjoyable and meaningful. He also mentioned that he is an archaeologist which is really cool!

Francesca was such a friendly, entertaining and knowledgable tour guide! I loved hearing about the history and imagining what the colosseum and forums would have been like thousands of years ago. I was very happy with the pace, there was plenty of time to look around and take pictures. I'd really recommend this tour if you want a deeper experience of these landmarks :)
