Awesome tour of the Colosseum/Palantine Hill with Fabulous Private Guide, Marco!
Highly recommend this amazing private tour with Marco. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the information. He also brought an IPAD with many different visuals to give context and perspective to all that we were seeing. All-around awesome experience for us because of Marco's thorough and detail-oriented tour. Only negative was that we specifically wanted a private tour which we got but the booking agency put our tour into one entrance ticket with another group of 8 people so we had to wait with them for their guide to arrive to gain entrance to the Colosseum and then coordinate meeting up with them again and waiting to gain entrance to the Forum and Palantine Hill part of the tour. That did not seem very fair to us as we paid for the private tour and we (and Marco!) should not have had to deal with the booking company's very inconvenient logistical ticketing process.

Guided tour of the Vatican
We had a tour guide,showing us around, and giving us a verbal commentary, We found it very informative, and totally amazing. You would need to give yourself 3-4 hours to see everything, We also saw the catacombs below, and found that was very interesting also.

Private tour of Vatican and Coloseum - Marco was great!
We did a private tour of both the Vatican and the Coloseum / Roman Forum - I have to say, deciding to do private with Marco ended up being a really great decision. Marco was amazing with the kids, took his time and was attentive. Would recommend him in a second. Thanks so much Marco!

Great tour of the Vatican
Booked a tour through trip advisor and was assigned a tour through city wonder tours! Our guide ‘Chiara’ was terrific and was so good at getting us through the horrendous crowds! She was very informative and knowledgeable. Despite the crowds of people this tour is a must in Rome! Getting through the security is the problem but we know that this is necessary!

Private Guided Kid Friendly Tour is Vatican
Simona was amazing. She was patient with our bery active boys, ages 8 and 9, and kept them completely engaged. She made time to answer all of their questions. The use of the iPad, scavenger hunt and pictures was perfect. She provided the right balance of history for both children and adults and the pace of our tour was perfect. I would highly recommend this tour, and Simona, to any family looking to tour the Vatican. My boys, my husband and I had a blast and learned a lot.

Worth the expense
We booked this through the Roman guy & headcount. We reserved an early time slot, 7.30am to make sure we avoided the crowds & it worked. We met our tour guide outside the Vatican , her name was Amanda & she was lovely. We got headsets so we could hear her & didn’t have to be really close to listen. She was really knowledgeable & was really passionate about what she was talking about which showed through. Security was quick. We had a walk through some corridors filled with statues & tapestry’s. the Sistine chapel was busy when we got there but not too much where you couldn’t move which is why we had paid for the earlier ticket. The Sistine chapel has to be seen, it’s just beautiful. Amanda took us into the basilica & gave us lots of great information there. The tour finished at 1pm. I would recommend taking this tour , it was an early start but well worth it. I would also suggest that you pay the €10 to walk up to the top of the basilica to take in the views across Vatican City. It’s just beautiful.

Marco is the perfect guide!
Marco was one of the best guides we had while in Italy. Our three kids enjoyed our time with him as much as the adults. His English is impeccable and his knowledge and passion are unmatched.

We all loved it!
We have been to the colosseum several times but wanted the kids (8,10,12) to engage with the history of Ancient Rome. The kids loved the tour with Marco and so did we. We learned so much but had so much fun too! Could not recommend more highly. Thank you Marco.

Colosseum tour with children by Marco
We loved our tour of the colosseum with Marco in May. He was very engaging, understood the attention span of our tween boys and kept us interested even during a downpour. We highly recommend him as a professional guide!

Your guide in Rome
We had an excellent tour of Highlights of Rome with Marco. As soon as we met, Marco managed to connect with children (aged 12 and 8), captivate them and hold their interest for the whole tour. He is very knowledgeable, knows a lot of facts and presents them in a way when learning is fun. Marco’s English is perfect, which was important for us as kids sometimes struggle with accents. I would recommend Marco’s tours for children and adults alike. Next time we are in Rome we would definitely book him for other tours and I have recommended him to a lot of our friends. We had other guides in the past and Marco is the only one we would go back to for all our future visits. Thank you Marco for a brilliant experience! It’s a pleasure to deal with professional person!

Great for kids and adults!!
This tour was worth every penny and I would do it again!!! Marco was so friendly and personable. He kept the kids (11,9&7) and adults interested the whole time. He helped us see the highlights while not getting bogged down in the crowds. And he had so many fascinating details to share. Thank you Marco!!
