Alessandro was an incredible guide! He was engaging, had SO much information, and really helpful photos to show the "then vs. now" of everything we were looking at. This particular tour was so cool to be able to go underground and see the Colosseum from different levels. We'd highly recommend booking this to anyone looking to do the full experience, and pro tip - bring water if it's hot out.

Alessandra was excellent - professional, knowledgeable and informative.

The underground tour was fascinating, as it was handed over to Sarah, who also knew a great deal about the subject.

This is a great tour and not to be missed. There is a wealth of information and the underground visit is fascinating. Both our guides were informed and gave each member of the tour the time and attention they deserved. Elizabet is a lovely guide and I would recommend her and the gentleman who showed us the underground arena to anyone.

Our, tour guide, Elizabeth was wonderful! Our two nephews have never been to Rome. They were fascinated with the Forum and the Colisseum. Lots of walking in the heat. I would recommend a morning tour.

Serena was an awesome guide, who made certain to make it fun and informative. We loved the Colosseum (especially the underground section) - would recommend it highly. The views from Palatine Hill were spectacular also.

Our private guide Franz was fantastic! He made everything about the tour the best part! He was highly engaged with our 3 boys ages 6, 9 and 11. He gave us an introduction while getting inside and meeting up with the small group. This specific part prevented boredom and allowed our family to just enjoy what we were visually seeing later. I appreciate his thorough knowledge and friendliness, he seemed to enjoy being there with us. Although it was hot Franz was also very aware of that and always guided us to the shade when he could and cold water. I am so happy we chose Tours of Rome.
