Great guide! So knowledgeable! She is an archaeologist, so I felt like we got incredible information. We got to tour the inner underground workings of the colosseum as well as the arena floor and all of the regular places as well. Such an amazing tour! Absolutely loved it. We chose to stop there and tour the Roman Forum by ourselves, but I’m sure it would’ve been amazing!

Our tour guide was excellent! The amount of knowledge he has on the colosseum and Roman history was overwhelming. My wife and I learned so much that we never expected. His analogies to explain certain things was awesome. And he made the experience fun with little jokes that he had for certain parts of the tour. We will definitely use your company again when we come back.

Really good tour, and Giovanni was very nice person and he has explained everthing clearly.

Fantastische tour, super enthousiaste gids Zenda! Ze wist ons zoveel te vertellen.

This was a great tour that included the full experience of the colosseum.
