My tour guide was the absolute best. She kept apologizing for things that were out of her control, like how crowded it was, but I appreciate that she wanted to make sure that ever moment was perfect for us. She was will versed in her Roman knowledge and made the whole experience amazing.

The tour was fascinating! Alessandra was great and very funny. Make sure you budget more time than the length of the tour - most tours i have gone went over time due to how crowded most places are

Our guide Marco was excellent. It was easy to meet up. The headsets worked perfectly. Overall, it takes a lot of walking so be prepared. The Arena access was worth it.

The tour guide was super pleasant, we learned a lot of things that we had never heard before. It was a lot of fun, entertaining and very very interesting

she was very knowledgeable and passed the information to us that kept us interested the whole tour. She is an asset to your company.
