We met at office meeting point not far from the Colleseum, we were a party of 3 people and guide was very knowledgeable, her English was brilliant and very engaging! We did the English tour of Collesseum, forum and Paletine Hill where view was worth the climb in 30 degree heat!

The guide was very good and enthusiastic but she wasn't at the meeting spot at the right time so that was frustrating. Also I booked this tour because it was an your and wasn't too long but they ended up taking us to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. It was nice we didn't have to pay ant extra for this but I ran out of time and only got to see 15mins of the actual Colosseum which I mainly wanted to see and had paid for. The guides were very good though.

Intelligent organization Warm welcome the organization recontacts us just before the visit to be sure that we will not get lost for the appointment. The Guide for the visit of the Colosseum (which included the visit of the forums which we could not attend) was passionate, very cultural and lively with a walk and short stops for anecdotes in the Colosseum. Thank you. See you soon for another visit.
