Amazing experience and fantastic tour company. The tour was absolutely amazing and the tour guide was so great, really informative but also a lot of fun. The company was great at ensuring that everyone was safe and socially distanced whilst still having fun. Everything was contactless and we felt very secure. I would highly recommend this tour.

My fiancée and I went on this tour and really enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide Roger was excellent, really knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It rained quite solidly for an hour and a decent portion of the tour is outside so make sure to dress appropriately and check the forecast! However, we still had a great time, saw some fantastic ruins, and learned a lot. The historical context made the architecture even more interesting so I would really recommend getting a tour guide to show you around and explain a few things.

Our tour guide Fumi was great! She was so informative, made you stop, think and use your imagination to picture what it would have been like when it was in full use. Loads of little facts here and there were a great addition too. We were lucky being a small group of seven, so it felt really intimate. Also, thanks for the photos in the best spots, Fumi!
