Tataiana, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The group was small and she kept us engaged throughout the whole tour. She gave us some suggestions on other activities we could do while in Rome. I would highly recommend this tour.

The best Colosseum experience
I had been to the Colosseum several times but I really wanted to see the Underground. We met at the office on top of metro station and from there we were directly taken to the back entrance of the Colosseum managing to skip the massive lines. The Underground was mind blowing and the guide told us some of the most interesting stories. The arena however was my favourite part. Seeing the Colosseum through the gladiators perspective was priceless. It was a lovely sunny day and we enjoyed the tour of the Roman Forum just as much. Very small group with a friendly guide. After 1 hour and a half spent with him, we wondered by ourselves. Totally worth it!

Great tour of Ancient Rome!
Jan 2020 • Family
Our trip to the Colosseum and Roman Forum was incredible and very fun for the whole family! Santos our guide was not only knowledgeable, but very friendly and personalized the tour for the whole family and was great with kids. He took the time to not only share the history of the various sites, but how it influences us today. Seeing the colosseum and going underground was an experience to remember, worth every penny! Would highly recommend this tour!

Great Tour-Great Guide
Nov 2019
We had Marta as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and personable. If you want to tour the Colosseum and Forum, you should choose this tour. It includes going Underground in the Colosseum which most people don’t see.
One thing to mention, if you have problems walking this tour may not be for you, There are many steps involved.

Excellent and informative tour. Evis was an awesome tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and made the information fun to hear. Some of the other guides I overheard were quite dull in their explanation but Evis was animated in her description of the Colosseum history, keeping it interesting.

Palatine Hill and the Colosseum

We bought this small group tour and would definitely recommend it to others. Our guides were knowledgable about the Roman history and friendly. The tour took us up Palatine Hill as well as undergroud in the Colosseum and to the very top of the Colosseum.

Great stories and history
Jun 2019 • Friends
We started in Palentine Hills. Our tour guide Santos was wonderful and had great stories. We were all women in the group and he was very attentive to our needs. We went to the Coliseum and went all over. Another good guide who knew her stuff. You could smell death down below, where the gladiators were. And the views up top were spectacular.
One has to take a tour or the waits are long and there are no historical stories. Thanks for a great day. It was very hot but we diid it!
