Very straightforward. The instruction for the Colloseum was easy to follow. I didnt buy the ticket with the guide. Probably shouldhave to understand better the history of this monumental place

We had an amazing time on this trip. The Colosseum, The Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum were all so beautiful and informative. Had a great time and would highly recommend.

Fabulous tour with Magda. Very knowledgeable and full of information. The cost of the tour for the areas included was really good value for money. Would recommend

Our guide was excellent- very knowledgeable and personable. Enjoyed having the opportunity to see it the underground.

Amazing to see. Lots of steep steps to climb. Lots of people. But worth the visit.
