Todo está organizado de una manera muy funcional. Vimos el vídeo multimedia antes de la visita y tuvimos todas las explicaciones necesarias para poder llegar a tiempo al coliseo y disfrutar de la visita. El personal de la oficina es extremadamente competente y amable.

Was really disappointed with the meetup reception. They seem to be understaff and wait time 15 minutes. Our guide Fabio is awesome and we totally enjoyed seeing Rome and Palatine hills with him. He is so knowledgeable and very detailed. We love and recommend this guide.

Fabio nous a révélé de belles choses sur la Rome antique et nous avons beaucoup apprécié la visite. Petit groupe de 4 pour ce tour ce qui était d'autant plus intéressant. Visite un peu trop longue pour mon fils de 7 ans qui a quand même résisté et en garde un bon souvenir.
