Our experience with the guide Dr. Zenda Martinelli was very good. It was just me and my daughter and Zenda was available to welcome our curiosity and the thousand questions. The visit was postponed by an hour and I was notified via whatsapp the day before. This involved a readjustment of the day's organization, but it wasn't a big deal. For the rest really good experience.

The guide was a very nice guy. Very informative experience. Skipping the line is definitely the right choice. Nice view inside the Coloseum. A lot of interesting facts about the Roman lifestyle back then, that you wouldn’t get without the guide. All in all, a good experience. Worth the money.

We had fantastic time exploring the colosseum with Sam. He was super knowledgeable and friendly. The trip took us about an hour. We had the option to continue toward Roman Forum and Palestine Hill but because of time constraint we chose to spend time in Colosseum. This was a great fit for our schedule. Would certainly recommend this experience.
