Our guide was Dennis and he was just wonderful!!! So knowledgeable, had an answer for every question asked. We were with our two boys (ages 6 and 8) and he paid extra attention to them, kept them involved and they were never bored. You can see that Dennis truly enjoys his job and wants to provide an unforgettable experience for his tour. We really enjoyed seeing everything, thank you Dennis!

Lovely tour. This tour didn’t include access to the Colosseum, like we thought we had booked. Luckily we were able to add access to the Colosseum for 10 eur more, and still get the guided tour. Can only recommend it! Try it in the afternoon to catch the sunset from the Colosseum, it’s just magnificent.

Notre guide Helena était très sympas et avait beaucoup d'humour. Nous avions mal choisi notre visite, nous avons pas pu rentrer dans l'arène. Faites donc attention à la description de la visite... Nous étions les seuls à devoir quitter la visite en plein milieu de l'expérience.. Dommage
