Small group tour with Alessandra (3 families with kids 2-9 years). Seemed well pitched for 2.5 hours to keep the young ones interested - quizzes, picture books, stories. “Lots of fun and very interactive” was comment from our 9 year old. Most of the tour is the Colosseum with 30-40mins at the Forum. About right for the children’s attention.

We had a great tour with Kate. The other families never showed us so we were alone. Kate was great with all the ages. she was able to adapt herself to the rythme. the colessum is beautiful and definitely worth a guide. I highly recommend this tour for young children

Alex was a great tour guide and tried really hard to keep all the kiddos interested. However, there were more than 12 people in our group, and there was not a treasure hunt/or prize at the end. My kids were really looking foreword to a treasure hunt, so this was a let down for them. Either the description needs to be updated, or we didn’t get the treasure hunt and prize.
