I booked this at the last minute because we missed our tour from a different company. Turned out to be an excellent experience! The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very detailed about his explanations. He was also very patient with all the tourists in our group and was more than willing to answer any and all questions we had for him. 10/10, would recommend to all!

Very well paced out!

The Tour was operated by the guide with adequate information at the right places. She was aware of the walk may be a little difficult for some so she paced it out well. Loved the little trivia things she mentioned from history which are not usually covered in school text books.

Booked the event the same day and I would say its worth it because we didnt have to wait in line to enter the Colleseum, Palatine hills & Forum. We were let in right away (you obviously had to go through a security line) but we just entered through the group entrance with no wait at all. The meeting place was easy to find and the tour started on time. It was not a very large group so it made it easy to walk AS a group unlike other groups that had about 20-30 people standing around. Donatella, our guide, was wonderful and had a wealth of information that certainly made the tour more meaningful.
