Such an awesome experience!!

Overall this was a great experience with our guide Lawrence (I probably spelled that wrong). From the beginning I was running a bit late and the wonderful people just slid us right into the next tour. After that it was such a breeze. Lawrence was very knowledgeable about everything and gave an amazing tour. The only thing I would have liked a bit more was some time for pictures but I did understand we had to be at the Colloseum at a specific time. Definitely would book this again and thank everyone involved so much!

Für die Führung im Kolosseum wurden wir mit unserer Gruppe mit anderen zusammengefasst. Als 'Entschädigung' für die nun große Gruppe - wohl mehr als 25 Personen - haben wir auch den Zutritt zur Arena erhalten. Die Führung war gut und informativ. Der Guide aus Berlin ebenfalls - mehr der Typ von nebenan als der Oberlehrer. Leider ist dann für die weitere Führung nochmals eine fast gleich große Gruppe hinzugekommen, daher waren wir so um die 50 Leute. Für diese Verhältnisse hat der Guide es sehr gut gemacht. Die Organisation war hier aber nicht gut aufgelebt. Durch die Fachbegriffe ist eine Führung in der Muttersprache schon sehr sinnvoll. Ich denke hier waren dann 50 Leute in Verbindung mit der deutschen Sprache besser, als eine Tout auf Englisch. Das Wissen hat der Guide sehr gut vermittelt.

All perfect except that while having hired palatine hill the guide refused to teach him according to him for lack of time and claiming that he already taught us from afar.
