Our guide Massimo was giving his heart and soul when he was walking us through the history of those ancient roman masterpieces. He had also brought some photos to show us some of the historical figures and buildings that are no longer there but are part of the history of this place.

Our guide Sara was very knowledgeable about the history of those places guided by her. The way she explained the history was like story-telling, interesting and humorous. She was very professional and experienced. She was able to pace the speed of the tour very well and allow us sufficient time to take pictures. We truly enjoyed the tour and learned a fair bit of history.

We didn't plan ahead correctly and were grateful to be able book this tour the previous day. The directions to the meeting point were out of date because the hallway in the metro station was closed. Our guide was educated and informative. The tour was 3 hours long, but we covered a lot of ground so it was pretty fast-paced and went quickly.
