We took this tour as a family of four (two kids ages 8 and 11) and loved it! At three hours long, it was just about the limit for our kids, but it covered so much and we would still recommend it. This tour included the Roman forum, Palatine Hill, and the underground of the Colosseum. We thought it was so cool to see this part of the Colosseum and the tour was completely worth it. Our guide was an archeologist so she had a ton of great information and was also super nice. Highly recommend!

It was an awesome tour. Flavia was extremely knowledgeable and answered every single question without a hiccup. Flavia was enthusiastic and entertaining and made the tour perfect. I would suggest if this is your first tour, choose Flavia as your guide. If it's your 2nd or 3rd, choose Flavia as your guide.
