    We had perfect tour guide. She was absolutely amazing and funny too. She made whole journey Interesting and interactive. Colosseum underground is breathtaking. Palatine hill too. But only one minus is,that if you go with a tour guide, you cannot see the whole place of Palatine hill. Which has a beautifull views. But only a short cut but with most importent points.

    This was a good tour, it started a little later than scheduled and finished later as well but we were fine with that. Our guide for the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill was great, friendly, answered all questions and showed us all the top places. The underground Colosseum tour was awesome too and our guide for that was an actual archeologists and you cold really tell she was passionate about it. Both guides gave us so much insights that you wouldn’t learn from anywhere else it was well worth it.

    Thought the tour was great! Gives good background of history. The dungeon area seemed to be shorter then the rest of our tour but good to see. Mircea was our tour guide for the second part of our booking of the Palatine Hill and he was one of the best tour guides we had had regarding background information of sites. Definitely dedicated to the history of Rome and we had a great experience!
