    Silvia introduced us to the exciting background of the Colosseum and the surrounding area in a varied and enthusiastic way. So all the ruins came to life. Fascinating. She responded well to the questions of all participants and was able to tie up my son, 13, for 3 hours in her sympathetic way. We were lucky enough to be only 4 people which of course made it even more personal. It was absolutely worth it.

    We had an amazing time with our guide. He was very knowledgeable and kind and was great with my kids. During the tour I got dehydrated and overheated and he was so great with making sure I was taken care of. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I would hands down book with them again and hope I got the same guide!

    We had a very nice day. A very informative great tour. Our guide had a very extensive knowledge. We were lucky that there were very few visitors to the Colosseum. This would allow us to look at everything in peace. I can recommend this tour to everyone, especially with our guide!
