Paolo, our tour guide was the best guide ever! He was so informative and funny and an incredible storyteller. A great experience!!!


We entered and exited every gate for the same view of the colosseum.. Tiring and too long. The garden we visited next was great. But by then we were too tired. A better option is to cut the time in colosseum and give the tickets to people if they want to go back after the tour.


Best tour of the trip! Paolo was engaged, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. I especially appreciate how he interacted with my 8 year old child, including her in the tour and making her feel appreciated and excited to learn. Highly recommend!


Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Foto Romano are a must see. These sites are best seen with a tour guide as they know the short cuts and best viewing places. And, there is no waiting in line to get in. Great tour guide with great knowledge of history and explained well. I highly recommend this tour.


Palatine Hill's Story is Fantastic and Overwhelming! Jo "our guide" was informative and engaging. Stories were colorful and brought the Kings, Emperors, The Ruling Families, Constantine, Julius Caesar and more to real seems they were still present.


Check the whole area for the group pick up as the directions is a rough guide Take plenty of water/fluids Wear good walking shoes/trainers Take snacks/sweets Keep up with guide as the head phones will not give you enough coverage and you loose the conversation.


Giorgio was very informative and knowledgeable! We enjoyed our tour and would recommend this tour with Giorgio!


Jana our guide, was great! She was enthusiastic, informative, and she knew her history. I highly recommend her! I would give more stars if I could.


Our guide was very knowledgeable and didn’t rush through the sights. My mom is older and we needed to go slower but it was not a problem. Good experience.


Janette was FABULOUS!!!!!!!! In all the travel and tours I've done, I have never found a more kowledgeable guide. And FUNNY!!!!!! She made ancient Rome sound like a riot!! She managed to help my knee-challenged wife while still keeping the group on schedule. I want to take her on all of my travels.
