Our guide Sophia has earned a full five stars! She told a lot of exciting and interesting things for both adults and children. She also gave us insider tips for Rome. For the kids she had something sweet to nibble on. There is a star deduction for get your guide: unfortunately the specified meeting point on Google Maps was the wrong one, so we had a bit of stress to arrive on time. Besides, nobody was available at the moment. It would have made sense if we had already had the number from Sophia. Nevertheless, we can recommend it to families and would do it again at any time. For information, our children were ten and twelve years old.

The guided tour is truly an indelible and memorable memory we spent a wonderful day in the company of Tommaso, our guide who is a really capable person. It interacts with the little ones (my 7 and 5 year old children) and adults in a truly unique way! He tells, explains and describes how it was a story enriched with details and stimulates the children with games, questions and his iPad… full of photos and stories that are part of his childhood… in short, very very good! I highly recommend it! Cristina, Rocco, Olivia and the grandmother! Thanks Tommaso!

Very nice private tour of the Colosseum and the Forum with a perfectly French speaking guide who managed to keep the children's attention for more than 3 hours.
