We made the visit with Paola, who really listened to our 6 and 8 year old children. She took the time to thoroughly explain how the Colosseum works with books to make her explanations more concrete. After visiting the Colosseum, we went to Mount Palation and finally the Roman Forum. We recommend +++ this visit with Paola who is very pleasant, very attentive and who knew how to make the visit very accessible to our children (while making comments to the parents when we needed it).

Extremely interesting tour, with little episodes to make you smile. Thanks to Thomas! We learned so much! Everything learned in Latin class suddenly came alive in this 3-hour walk. Our 3 teenagers were also enthusiastic. Thomas always addressed our children directly and involved them. The small group makes it possible to respond to requests and to clarify questions more easily. Our tour was even in Swiss German, we didn't expect that - thank you! Everything went great!

The leadership was awesome. Giulia taught our daughter (5 years) and us the highlights and historical connections in a playful way in the truest sense of the word. We adults have been to Rome quite often and still heard and seen many things for the first time. Highly competent, patient, flexible, child-friendly and honestly committed. Thank you very much! Unreserved recommendation!
