Support local businesses! I booked this tour last minute for my husband and I, and it was a great decision. The colosseum is huge and full of intricacies, had we gone on our own we would have missed out on so much detail and history that Mircea provided us on the guided tour. Mircea is a Roman local with a passion for the history of this city. During the tour, he kept us engaged and provided plenty of opportunities to ask questions. His storytelling was also so intriguing that I felt I could picture what life must have been like back during the Roman empire. Not only did Mircea keep us engaged throughout, he pointed out so many subtle and small details in the design and construction of the colosseum that left me in awe of the work done by these people thousands of years ago. Overall, this was an engaging, educational tour well worth its value. I wish we had time for some of Mircea's other tours. I would wholeheartedly recommend Mircea to anyone who wants to learn more about the history of Rome and who wants to support a small local business. Thank you Mircea!

while our tour guide was a lovely and entertaining guy, i wouldn’t recommend this tour to those who have come to rome specifically for the ancient city, for as a historian i was a little disappointed by it. the tour of the forum only included the arch of titus, temple of romulus and the temple of antoninus, and only really in terms of constantine and christianity (which is interesting stuff - but as a historian of the republic i was hoping to see more - or any - of the topography of republican politics), and a lot of the tour was actually about the tour guide himself rather than the history. as we did the forum first this meant we had to leave and could not re enter making it feel like a missed opportunity that we weren’t able to see the rest of the forum or the house of augustus. i would definitely recommend this tour to someone who is doing it because it’s what you do when you’re in rome, but not to someone who has come to rome specifically to see this stuff!!

Our tour was exceptional and one of the best we have had on our 4 week euro trip. Mircea (Michael, Mike, guy with an M) was brilliant with a bright and bubbly personality his rambling as he calls it was so informative and was the perfect mix of commentary and breaks for you to stop and get photos and see what you wanted to see not just being rushed through to tick a box. I would highly recommend Roman Vacations to anyone looking for a great tour when in Rome.

James is such a knowledgable person. I could listen to him for hours. Make sure you hold onto him, he’s an asset to your company! I definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in history. Not many people know what the Roman Jews went through over the years and this tour has definitely opened my eyes.
