    Marco was a fabulous tour guide. My son is 12 and autistic. Marco was fantastic with him as well as my typical 6 year old daughter. He was patient, informative, and an absolute joy. He really brought the tour of the Colosseum to life. We enjoyed our tour so much and truly appreciate his enthusiasm. It was entire family's favorite part of our trip to Rome!

    Very nice visit with Alessandra (Raphael Tours agency), archaeologist guide that my son and I highly recommend! My son (10 years old) was delighted with the visit to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Neither too long nor too short with explanations well suited for a child of his age. Alessandra was absolutely lovely. We certainly wouldn't have "seen" the Colosseum or the Forum in the same way without her.
