    perfect!
    the tour was very interesting: we had a young, knowledgeable guide (Andy) that knew literally everything about what we were seeing. He gave us a lot of suggestions for restaurants and shops. Thank you Andy and thank you SPQR for the unforgettable experience!

    Coliseum, Palatine and Forum tiur
    This was one of the best tours I’ve ever been on. Our guide was Mircea. He was very professional and made the tour very enjoyable. He was able to answer questions and obviously knew his stuff. A hot day but made easier by his constant use of shady locations. A great day, thank you.

    Tour of Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine
    I had spent so much time online looking for the best tours for Colosseum but with so many mixed reviews everywhere we didn’t book any. So glad we took the chance and just turned up on the morning. We were assigned our Tour Guide Mitch who was first class!! Our group was just the perfect size (about 12). We had skip the q also with the ticket and it was much cheaper than we had anticipated. I couldn’t recommend Mitch and the company highly enough. Just wish we hadn’t booked the Vatican already as you receive a discount for it. Don’t look beyond here for any of your tours. Fair play to Mitch for not missing a beat even when one of those in the tour decided to put on a full face of makeup in the middle of it all!!!

    Excellent tour with knowledgeable tour guide
    We are so glad we got tickets to this tour. Originally we were debating to go it alone, but you absolutely need a tour guide to take you round the colosseum and palatine hill. It was amazing. We had mitchi as our tour guide. He was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He made the experience entertaining even whilst the sun was beating down on us. Would highly recommend this tour. They also do a discount for the vatican as they do a tour there. I would also recommend you bring a bottle of water with you as they don't sell anything near by. It's easy to get to the colosseum via metro. Excellent day.

    Tour guides Radu and Mircea are Excellent!
    Mircea and Radu are excellent tour guides! They are interesting, knowledgable and helpful. Yet, whilst these two tour guides are excellent and did everything right, the managers of the company are very rude and inefficient. Mircea and Radu deserve to work for a better company!

    Excellent tour of Colosseum and Forum
    Went on the free first Sunday of the month so considerable saving. The lady who took us around the Coliseum spoke excellent English was very informative with just the right amount of information answered questions when asked and organise the group splendidly. At the end of her tour she gave clear instructions where to go for the next section and left us free to explore the Coliseum until the next tour started. The tour of the forum was conducted by Radu who was very well informed how old the focus of the group very well injected humour into the tour and engauged every member of the group. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and yes he did teach me the name of the last Roman Emperor thank you:).

    Fantastic tour
    We had a tour of the collesuem and palatine Hill / the forum. The lady who took us around the collesuem was very helpful and spoke very good English. She gave perfect instructions and had good knowledge of the history. Next we met Radu for the tour of the hill and Forum. He was fantastic. Full of knowledge but also made the tour so interesting with his humour. Highly recommend using this company. We also paid a cheaper rate than what other people were charging.

The tour was well worth it to save time queuing. In addition we got a very knowledgeable guide who explained lots of information about the history of the colosseum. The price included a tour around paletine hill. We decided to do this self guided in the end as our tour group was huge (70 plus people) and it was difficult to hear the guide.
