    Our tour guide Dennis was an absolute delight. This is my first time in Rome and I’m a solo traveller so I really wanted to do this tour and it was incredible. It took around 4 hours and it’s the quickest 4 hours ever, I’ve learned so much and felt so comfortable around Dennis who was extremely knowledgable and answered any and all questions thrown at him. I recommend this tour to anybody, it was worth every penny - you see and learn so much and it was really nice to gain some local knowledge from Dennis to use for the remainder of my trip!

    Excellent. Guides bring the Colosseum and Forum to life.

    Highly recommend this tour. Skipping the lines and access to the floor of the Colosseum alone makes it worth it. But our guide really brought the Colosseum to life. We got so much more out of the visit then if we had wandered around ourselves. And the Forum and Palantine Hill is worth the time even if you are tired. Amazing history again with an excellent guide.

    Well worth it on short notice

    So! I missed my previous tour with a different company and booked this one last minute. And I must say, it was good that I did. It was easy to find the Meeting point and was treated great. We then met our guide who I must say was very knowledgeable and he wanted to share so much information that he almost ran out of time. We entered the colosseum through the gladiators entrance and it was special. With the stories being told and your understanding of everything becoming more clear. It was a great experience. Hands down worth the booking. It’s worth noting that this tour was about 2 1/2 hours long, not a hour as printed.
