Beyond all expectations!
Our experience on the Collosseum tour was a highlight of our trip. Our guide, Massimo, was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and created a sense of wonder when seeing artifacts/sites that I didn’t know the history of previously. Truly one of the best guided tours in my time traveling! Can not recommend enough!

Adoramos o passeio e o guia
O passeio foi muito bom. Tudo bem organizado, desde ponto de encontro até o tour em si. O nosso guia Maximus foi maravilhoso. Até o nome dele é bom pra uma excursão no coliseu (kkkk). Sempre muito simpático, mostrou muito conhecimento, atencioso e soube levar o grupo em um passeio muito agradável mesmo debaixo de muita chuva e vento. Nem isso estragou. Ficamos satisfeitos! Bjos pro guia!

Efficient. Good meeting spot. Prompt. Guide Neomi extremely knowledgeable and had reconstruction and historical pictures to enhance description. Ran over because she was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Unfortunately we had to leave to get our van pickup for trip to ship.

The best guided tour of our trip. Barbara, our guide, was witty, passionate and well versed in the history of Ancient Rome. She made the entire setting - the old palace ruins, the arena - come to life. The pace was just right - 3 hours flashed by without any feeling of being rushed or too slow. Highly recommend.

The tour was very well led by Barbara, our guide. She was very friendly and entertaining, a living and enjoyable enciclopedia on Roman history. Not worth discussing how beautiful Rome and the Colosseum are... Plus, the only opportunity you have to skip the infinite queue and visit the arena.

Very enthusiastic & knowledgable guide. No wait entry very handy. Gladiators entrance well worth it. They didnt show where wild animals were kept or where gladiators prepared, as advertised, though.

Great tour from start to end, very enjoyable and even better that we skipped the long lines for the colosseum. What really made the tour for me was the guide Laura, not only was she informative on the subject matter, she also delivered the information in a very engaging and jovial way which really brought the group together.
