This was an amazing tour. To our delight, there were only 6 people in our tour. Our tour guide Maya was excellent. She had a smile on her face from the beginning to the end. We moved at a quick pace and toured everything in about 3 hours. While it was a bit crowded, Maya was good at finding places to stop and take photos. We really enjoyed visiting the underground of the Colesseum.

We had a great time visiting the underground colosseum and Roman Forum with Lumi our tour guide who was very informative and funny. She kept the attention of our 13 year old twins who usually get bored with tours and in fact they said this tour was the highlight of our family trip! Lumi was nice enough to let us spend a few extra minutes visiting the Arch depicting Roman victory against Persians in the Forum, even though it wasn’t part of her tour agenda. We loved the tour and would book again!
