We took a Tapsy Tour to the Colosseum with our two children and it was a sensational experience.
The guide explained the history of the Colosseum while entertaining the children with games and activities. Our children really enjoyed the Tapsy booklet and learned a lot.
It was a very pleasant day and we go home with great memories.
We highly recommend it.

Paola was an excellent tour guide for the coliseum & Roman forum (2 adults and an 8 year old). Pitched perfectly for our daughter. Paola made it fun, interesting, interactive, informative and relevant to our daughter. Paola used books, and photos to engage us, and gave our daughter some gifts & photos at the end of the tour. Paola was polite and punctual. The tour was the right length of time.

We took a tour with Tapsy during our last trip to Rome (kids are 6 and 8) and it was a lovely experience. The guide put a lot of heart into the tour and was always careful to present the attractions in a way that was easy to understand and captivating for the kids. The tour came with some props that were a hit with my two such as stickers, an activity booklet and Polaroid style photos. Tapsy has a Mascotte (a mole) and he came to say hi to us - this was great fun especially for my younger one. The tour requires a good bit of walking and it is quite long (3 hours) so make sure you all have good walking shoes and some snack handy. The tour we chose was a walk around Rome and hit some of the most famous landmarks such as the Colosseum and the Pantheon. This is a great introduction to the city and perfect for first time visitors

We booked the Colosseum tour with Tapsy Tours a few months before our trip in June in order to have a child-friendly tour of the Colosseum with our three children. Tapsy Tours emailed us a few days before to tell us our guide was ill and they were looking for another one. The night before the tour they found a guide who was ABSOLUTELY not child friendly (and not one of their usual guides). What was meant to be the highlight of our trip (our kids are obsessed with Roman history and were so excited) was SO disappointing as we were listening on and on and on - and we gave feedback that we needed it to be more interactive and less information. We ended the tour early as our kids were losing their minds. I immediately emailed Tapsy Tours to let them know, and after 2 emails they said we would be partially refunded (the price is high for a non-family friendly tour and was a splurge for us). I have now emailed 5 more times over 2 months and received ONE response last week that we would be partially refunded, and we have seen no money return to our account. There is no phone number listed anywhere.

Had they just cancelled and said they couldn't find a tour, we could have found an alternative. We are so disappointed in the tour and the response and have yet to be refunded more than two months later.

Don't book with this company. They are likely to cancel your tour with little notice and ruin your travel plans. Booked tour months in advance. Tour operator confirmed immedietly then cancelled within hours of its start time.

Good evening, I would like to remind you that your tour was cancelled becouse the tour guide got sick and as it happened during high season it is quite difficult to find an other guide. Of course you got your money back.

We went on this tour with our two young children aged 7.I would highly recommend Tapsy tours. VERY informative tour, whereby the guide was very friendly professional.She had a difficult task in delivering to both adults and children but she had excellent communication skills. TAPSY provided a free guide book which was informative and a useful reference guide. She regularly got changed into different costumes to portrayed different roles, my children were really enthused by her throughout the tour. The tour was excellent value for money. I would highly recommend and would use Tapsy again on my next visit to the beautiful city of Rome.

This is an unprofessional tour provider with very poor and incorrect scripts for tours regarding facts and timings, filing for bankruptcy to avoid paying small business suppliers and then continuing their business, trying to scare former partners with legal actions. Avoid.

The tour was advertised as 9.30am start, we paid the amount quoted of Eur 424, only to be told the day before the tour that it would be at 2pm. We were travelling with small kids and given the 38 degree temperature could not tour at that time and requested a refund.

Since then there has been no communication, no tour and no refund. Outrageous service.

We had a great afternoon with Federica, she was great with our 2 girls, engaging them throughout the tour. Having a Tapsy tour made the world of difference to our experience or the Colosseum and forum, Federica brought the Colosseum to life for the girls. Keeping our girls (and us) engaged whilst exploring in the heat was no easy job yet Federica excelled. They even enjoyed hearing about Federica's experiences as an archaeologist. We've enjoyed it so much we will be enquiring about availability for tours in Pompeii.
