It was a fantastic. However, the app ticket told us to meet at the office (which was closed) and the paper ticket told us to meet by the metro. After we visit IWD the colosseum we were told to meet our next guide for the forum. We we’re told he was tall, had a beard, was wearing a green jumper and had stickers on his bag. He had non of those things and didn’t have a sign. Imagine trying to find the guide in a crowd of hundreds of people. To be fair, once we had found him, the guide was very knowledgeable and we had an incredible time.

We loved this tour. The tour guides were fun and entertaining! We started off by entering straight into the Colosseum, barely waiting at all. The tour was a great pace and had good information. We were then able to explore the Colosseum by ourselves before meeting up with our second guide to walk through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Our guide, Angela, was so passionate about the history and walked us through all the main area, then left us to explore the rest ourselves with recommendations on where to go and what to see. Worth every cent!

It was good, but too short

We had prefer to have more time to spent in colleseum self. At the end we need to change of guide. We haven 't seen the person. It was a discribin of him. And we almost miss him because we didn't see the spot that was arranged. When we came outside of the museum, we need to come together at stairs. But we didn't see him. Luckely, we found another guide and she knows the guide and she bring us to there. We were in total with 4 people of the 12 that didn't found this guide. And came alright, but it was very close to can't do the tour anymore!
