We had a very nice day. A very informative great tour. Our guide had a very extensive knowledge. We were lucky that there were very few visitors to the Colosseum. This would allow us to look at everything in peace. I can recommend this tour to everyone, especially with our guide!

Our tour was fantastic - our tour guide Mark was very friendly and knowledgeable, we could not fault him. The tour of Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum was great as he gave so much insight - this was really helpful in imagining what it was truly like back then (as some ruins are very worn down). We topped it off with the Colosseum which did not fall below our expectations. We practically had a private tour (only 5 of us) which was amazing (I had priced private tours before purchasing these tickets and they are much more expensive). One point to note, our tour guide was holding a pink FLAG not a pink vest as directed in the meeting point information - wasn’t an issue but be aware in case you’re looking for pink vests only! :)

Alexandra was a fantastic tour guide! She is also an archaeologist and her extensive knowledge of the historical sites kept us captivated throughout the entire tour. She was friendly, enthusiastic and eager and she prepared a lot of additional materials to enhance her explanation along the way. I would love to have Alex as my tour guide again when I return! Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill tour is a must when you visit Rome - there's so much history behind it and you will be thankful to have a guide explaining it to you!
