This tour was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Claudia was knowledgeable, funny and easy to connect with. Our kids 9 & 11 loved her and insists that we book another tour with her next time we are in Rome!

We had a great time with our guide. I can't remember his name now and he was great and exceptional!! I wish I took his number. he was so good with the kids and explained them and us in their language the history of the colosium history. He was passionate about the subject and guess what he was an archeologist at the coliseum too! kids got tired but I wish we could have extended our tour with him!!!! thank you!!!
