The Colosseum is impressive and we are so glad we had a private tour geared for our four children, it made it so much more memorable to learn the history from an expert who kept our kids engaged the entire time. She was a delight, but a little hard to hear at times because she was losing her voice. However, she was always super friendly and patient to repeat herself and find a quieter area to explain the many interesting facts surrounding the building of this great monument. We also really enjoyed Palantine Hill!! The Romans were masters of their crafts and what a privilege to walk in their footsteps.

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.
