We were guided by Arian from Crown tours, if I heard well his name. If not i am really sorry. His english is very good, although radios are not the best. But on this tour you can be close to guide so you can hear in person. Tour is very very demanding and tiring but you see everything that you need to see on your first visit to Rome. He knows facts and fun facts very well so it is interesting all the time. Of course that 3 hours is not enough to talk about everything in this tour, but its more than enough to get tired so you need to go for lunch and wine as soon as you finish.

Excellent tour! I’ve never gone for a tour like this before, it was really fun and the tour guide (Amber) was really knowledgeable. I felt really safe following her around the forum etc and the office was easy to find and well organised. I would strongly recommend this tour and I’ll definitely use again next time I am visiting Rome.

The experience was great, we did our tour with Lumi. She gave us a detailed, fun and very knowledgeable tour with historic information along every step of the walk. Would definitely recommend and do it again as I would have never know so much about the historic landmarks of Rome if I have done it by myself.
