Francesca was fantastic, a true font of knowledge. A great tour.

The government suddenly decided that everything should be open to all during this week, Cultural Week, so our Skip the Line tickets did not work which was annoying. Francesca did her best and got us into the Forum as quickly as she could but the queue fir the Colisseum was painful.

A great experience enhanced by the wonderful guide.

We had booked our guide not knowing what to expect and would recommend this service to anyone. We were quite lucky in that there was only one other person on our tour (it was first thing in the morning) so it was as if we had a private tour. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, spoke clearly and loud enough for us to hear. We moved around and covered quite an it if ground, all the while learning a ton about the people, history, and architecture. I would highly recommend this for anyone as it was a perfect t piece of our visit to Rome.
