Sterling effort by guide despite torrential rain. Poor organisation.

To be honest, this tour should have been cancelled by the operator. We arrived 35 minutes early as it said we should be 30 minutes early. The rain was relentless and on arrival the lady on the desk told us 'you're very early' and that we could wait in the next door office. She said we would start walking at 12.20. We waited and waited. We checked a couple of times and eventually at 12.30 we were rushed down to meet the guide. It was not easy in the pouring rain as the guy was walking extremely fast. Once we got there, we'd kept the guide and a few other people waiting for a good ten minutes. Once we started the guide - Sam - was helpful and informative despite the cold and wet conditions. On a good day this would have been a great tour.

Andrea was an amazing guide! He made learning a lot of fun!

We did the colosseum and Roman forum tour with Andrea. It was more than 3 hour but didn’t feel like it at all. I’m usually looking for 1hr tours as 3hrs sounds like it would be way too much, but it really wasn’t. I also read some guides can be lazy, but Andrea was amazing. He was funny, really knowledgeable, and really nice. Highly recommend this tour with him!

Josephine’s colleseum tour was remarkable, memorable and inspiring

Josephine was a dedicated and knowledgeable tour guide who brought a nice personal touch to the Colloseum with humour and personality. It was thundering, raining heavily and striking lightening but this did not dampen her spirits. She was passionate in her explanation of everything. Couldn’t recommend more highly. Thank you Josephine for a great tour.

Superbly designed and delivered tour of Palatine and overview of Forum

My son (21) and I enjoyed a thoroughly informative and illuminating tour of the Farnese Gardens / Palatine lead by an experienced tour guide / archaeologist. The Group was manageable size and the personalised sound system coped well with the high level of ambient noise inevitable at such a sought after location.

Amazing tour, and the guide Simona Mariotti made even more special!

The tour was very interesting and the sights were beautiful. We were especially lucky as out tour guide, Simona Mariotti was so great that it made the several hours on the tour pass by like minutes. She was extremely knowledgeable and at the same time so interesting and fun! My sincere thanks to her.
