    Awesome tour! We had a lot of fun; the amount of historic information you get is perfectly thought out - not too little and not too much. The route is great and all the sights that were shown to us are very interesting. Lucilla was a great tour guide. You will get recommendations/tips for restaurants or sights depending on your prefernces. You will also get some ear pieces to make sure you can always stand under the guide. She also took very good care of us in terms of taking pictures and leading us to water fountains. Definitely recommend!

    A must in Rome!

    Lots of history of Colosseum and Forum Romanum and perfect views around Rome from Vittoriano Panoramic Terrace. Our best regards to the guide Auessia - You were absolutely fabulous with Your knowledege and humour. We haven´t seen anywhere such a good guide, who took care of everyone - even learned everyone`s names and countries - amazing! We felt so familiar... And what a beautiful woman, I had so many pictures from You. I´m the one who taught You how icecream is said in Finnish and the other one, I don´t like to write... starting fo. This tour can be recommended to everyone exept to those who have back or feet problems caused by steep stais in Colosseum and lots of stairs in Vittoriano. We were not on the guides list although we had reserved the tickets in October 2017, but Auessia took a good care of that as well. Just a one phone call to the office and everything was OK.
