We arrived at the meeting point on time, but it seemed a little disorganised even though I'd been receiving WhatsApp messages from the company before the tour. A rep managed to find us a guide who we shared with an Italian couple. After that everything was fine and the tour guide explained everything to us well. I would use them again to book a tour.

Entering the gladiator entrance was one of a kind. A must for anyone planning to visit the colesseum. The guide was amazing she had a wealth of knowledge and even managed to get us into a Pagan basilica that rarely allows entry to tours. The Roman Forum was so fascinating too there was so much to see and enjoy. Would 100% go again.
