    The guide provides everyone with a radio so you can hear all that is being said and take your time seeing the sites. We loved seeing the areas outside the colosseum before getting a tour inside. Keep in mind, this tour does not give access to the underground area of the colosseum.

    We booked the tickets just one day before the tour, it was very easy and if we had problems, they immediately solve them. The guided tour was excellent! Fabio was our guide, he was very kind, funny, speaks the English language well and told to us a lot of exciting stories and interesting things. We can recommend him and the agency for everyone!

    Experience was amazing. Lydia knows what she was talking about. I will recommend her as a tour guide. Every questions was answered. And towards the middle of the tour my phone died so i don’t have any pictures for the tour, but she was kind enough to to take a picture of me in the colosseum which was awesome and send it to me. i luv her.
