We had an absolutely wonderful tour with Dennis! Could not recommend it enough. Dennis walked us through the Colloseum (we skipped the line and felt like we were the only ones in the Colloseum). Dennis was extremely informative and knowledgeable, willing to answer all the questions we had! We also walked around the Roman Forum and the Palestine Hill. It was a perfect afternoon, made even better by Dennis. The company private you with a headset too which ensured we could hear Dennis the whole time.

We had Rosa who was an excellent guide and went into a lot of good details during the tour. She even overan to ensure we got the full guided tour as we had an issue with one of the group. This was the reason for only 4stars as we thought the Arena tour gave us a better tour of the colisseum but it did not allow us to go into the higher levels which was a shame and misleading by the tour company. I would take the regular tour next time to get a better view inside the colisseum.

The skip-the-line and arena floor access was well worth the price of the tour. Although I had to push down the feeling to scream "Are you not entertained?" as in the movie Gladiator, the amazing view walking out onto the floor of the Colosseum is something that I'll never forget. Renata was a good tour guide throughout the process but it is a lengthy tour that covers the entire area around the Colosseum as well.
