    Loved it!
    Lumi was my favorite! Her humor was weaved into wonderful stories of the Roman Emperors and Gladiators and pagan gods. We saw so much! Lumi has an amazing knowledge!

    Disaster!
    We had paid for two skip the line colosseum tickets for the morning however when we went to collect the tickets they said there had been a “glitch” and they had over sold. They did not have any tickets at all available! They said the company should have tried to get in touch but I had not received any calls or emails. I explained that we were only in Rome for the day and we had a pantheon guided tour booked for the afternoon but nothing was offered in the way of compensation. They said we would get a refund 3- 5 days later. They did take us to the booth where you can buy tickets. We had no choice but to join the very long queue and wait for 1.5 hours in the heat to gain entry to the Colosseum but it meant we only had about 45 mins to look around. It really impacted our day.

    Great tour of Colosseum and Roman Forum
    Took an English speaking tour with Donatello our guide who was awesome!! She was great corralling 12 individuals and explained everything very well and in depth. Highly encourage taking this 3.5 hour tour going to the depth of the coliseum where the Gladiators were staged prior to the fights!

    An insightful step back in time
    Our tour guide (Luni?) was excellent. She had great knowledge and shared her views with humour and insight into history. We really appreciated her recognition that a 4 year old wouldn’t respond to history but would love being drawn forward to look at fish. She is an excellent guide and managed the time brilliantly. I’m sorry that we didn’t properly catch her name so that we could say confidently to other travellers - if L… is your guide you will have a wonderful experience.

    Cancelled by operator
    Cancelled by operator 45 mins before our arrival time. We did not get contacted via my cell phone, found out when the tour guide arrived. Said they emailed but we did not see it as we were in transit. We could not find any more skip the line trips and had to wait in line. In an addition they said the refund will take 3-4 days, funny how quickly they take the money when you book. Would never use this tour group again.

    Amazing!
    What a fabulous tour- brilliantly led by Lumi. Would definitely recommend a tour with this company- well organised and great communication, not only on the tour but also prior to arrival. We don’t think we would have got as much insight into the amazing history on our own so thank you!

    Amazing tour with so much to see
    Amazing tour with Barbara who was so knowledgeable and friendly. She even argued our case with the security staff when a member of our party didn’t have the right ID for the colosseum. Highly rate the tour- worth every penny

    Enjoyed the tour very much and would recommend for all…
    Guide was very informative and had a wealth of knowledge. Tour was very informative but be prepared to walk tall stairs, hills and uneven paths.

    Fantastic Tour
    This was a fantastic tour. Our guide Roger spoke perfect English and was extremely knowledgeable. He commanded the full attention of the group for a three hour period through a busy and sometimes manic environment, being both approachable and charming. The Colosseum is both beautiful and fascinating, as was the Roman Forum. The views from Palatine Hill were awe inspiring. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone in Rome, well worth the money.

    Meh
    Our guide was clearly having a bad day with lost radios Whilst very knowledgeable thus tour would work better if the guide moved it a long a little faster. Perhaps we don’t need quite so much detail.

    Highly recommend
    Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area. It was one of my favourite things to do in Rome and to see first hands the Roman history was incredible. I have never been on a tour that used short wave radio when walking around and I thought it was brilliant. Unfortunately during our tour, there was issues with two of the other guests , they arrived late and then one wandered off while in the Colosseum which took away from our time as the tour guide had to try and help locate him. The awol’s partner then decided to find him. Tour guide managed his best in this situation but we were short for time for the Palentine hill then. Would recommend this tour to anyone, guides were easy to find and there’s a lot to see but be ready for walking and other people in your group slowing the process. Make sure to hand back your radio because the Guides get fined for this!

    An absolute MUST DO!!!!!
    Our tour guide Lumi was brilliant and very knowledgeable. She did a great job of giving out great key information while keeping the group together and moving. The extra money for the colosseum floor and Roman Forum was well worth it. The meeting point was easy to find. The people in the office were very friendly and helpful also. More information could have been given on the need to carry identification for admission.

    Colosseum and Forum Tour
    The tour was excellent and Lumi, our tour guide was hilarious and engaging. Being on the floor of the Colosseum was an incredible experience.

    Great experience, well worth the money
    Great experience, money well spent. Scott was our guide, group was all ages but Scott made sure to accomodate all. It was an in depth tour of the Colosseum and Forum Romanum, so much input and little lesser known facts. 100% recommended. We could have booked the German tour as well but timeslots did not match our schedule. Glad we booked the Englisch speaking Tour. Thank you Scott. April 9, 10:20

We arrived in Rome just a couple of hours before this tour started at 5.30. I got a Whatsapp message from the company with the meeting point and they also phoned to let me know the meeting point as I hadn't seen the message.
Our guide was Ani and we were a group of about 10. She was very knowledgeable and friendly and the tour was really relaxed despite Rome being very busy. We set off late as there was a problem with the booking for a couple of party but she resolved it and was obviously in no rush to finish.
I would highly recommend this tour to get your bearings and see some great sites. It's one thing looking and admiring something but another to understand the history of it and some of the hidden features that you would never know to look for.
Great tour, thanks Ani.

No seriously, I tried to persuade Angela to come with us to Venice after her tour of the Roman Forum (public) and nighttime in Rome (private). She was that knowledgeable and personable. And no tour after hers lived up to what we got from hers.

She was very perceptive about what types of information we wanted, and how much information we wanted. That's key, because some guides can drone on and on about their favorite thing, not leaving time for other stuff you might have wanted to know. She based her tour completely on our wants, even as a six-person group to start. That's when we immediately jumped at the chance to book her (very affordable) private tour of other parts of the city that evening.

She took us to all sorts of nooks and crannies that you don't see on the typical tours that evening. Of course we saw the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, but she also instinctively knew we wanted off-beat stuff like great views, insider tips for where to eat, all kinds of sights we wouldn't have seen on our own, even with the help of Lonely Planet research. She also gave us fantastic advice for the next day, what was worth seeing and what to skip. So in a way we really did take her with us and she guided us the next day without being there.

Some of the best money we spent on our Europe trip was this two-hour private tour with Angela.
