The decision to visit the Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum with a guided tour was 100% correct. You really learn a lot, get your questions answered and get a much better picture of the whole thing. Otherwise it would have been just a heap of stones, especially in Forum R.... Our guide (German-speaking) was called Berk and he also showed us many pictures of how certain buildings used to look. Thanks for the nice tour.

The tour was fantastic. Lorenzo our guide was knowledgeable, funny and took the time to answer any questions anybody had. The tour didn’t feel rushed and there was plenty of time to take everything in. If you are going to the colosseum, and Palantine hill, then I would fully recommend this tour.

Our guide Berk was just great and very personable. In three hours he gave us lively and comprehensive information about the Colessum and the Roman Forum. No question remained unanswered. He always made sure that we could stop in shady places and go to the toilet. At the end he even sent us restaurant recommendations. Only the meeting point was a bit difficult to find. Nevertheless full recommendation!!!
