Great tour of Ancient Rome
Jul 2021 • Family
Our guide Dennis led a great tour of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine. Informative, thorough, interesting, and funny. We almost never take guided tours and only did this one because Colosseum reservations were sold out, but we were so glad we did. We learned so much more than if we had wandered through the area ourselves. Highly recommended!

Colosseum and Ancient Rome Small Group Tour with Adriana
Feb 2020
Adriana was our guide for this tour. She is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her subject. We thought she was great. We were able to learn interesting details and facts about ancient Roman history. Had been a little apprehensive about doing a guided tour but really glad we did and glad that we chose this particular company (having researched several)
The tour turned out to be one of our highlights of our trip to Rome.

Thank you so much for your review. Adriana is in fact a very professional guide, always ready to share her knowledge and entertain you while you learn new things about Rome. We always recommend it´s better to get to know the city with a tour guide, to make the experience even more unforgettable. We are glad you liked the way the tour developed. Thank you!
