    Loved this tour! Maria was AMAZING with my two boys (5.5 and 8 yrs) while touring the Colosseum in August. They are both shy, she was caring and kept them engaged the whole time. My husband and I learned so much too. Maria had extensive knowledge about the Colosseum and it's history. She also had an iPad with pictures to help the kids better understand what the Colosseum was like during that time. She gave some cool facts that the boys like to share with everyone. I would highly recommend the Joy of Rome and Maria. Also, being August and coming during a really busy time the Joy of Rome was really easy to work with and were very responsive with emails.

    Serena was awesome in keeping my daughters engaged. She is super knowledgeable about Rome and we had lot of fun. She was also great in providing us suggestions on where to eat. We went to that awesome gelato place as well. All in all, great experience with her.

    Arianna showed my wife, our six year old son and I around the Colessuem. We all loved it. Very engaging, very informative and very friendly. Removed all the potential stress from visiting such a busy and popular attraction. Worth every penny. Thanks!

    Great tour with not just historical facts but plenty of anecdotes that kept the teenagers attentive the whole time. Massimo was just fantastic. Period.

    Francesca was a great guide. She engaged with my 8 yo and had lots of interesting details to share. Definitely a must do tour in Rome.

    My teen daughter and I had a private tour of both the colosseum and the Vatican on 2 separate days. Our tour guide was Sarena. This was an amazing tour and really enhanced our vacation. Sarena was an amazing tour guide. She is so knowledgeable, engaging, and personable. My daughter has studied a lot of Roman history and art in school. Sarena took that and ran with it, really personalizing our experience and tour. It felt like we were walking around with a good friend, one who knows so much about Roman history, art, and these Roman landmarks. We did not wait on line anywhere. And she knew all of the best places to stop including restroom breaks. Both tours were worth every bit of what we spent. I highly recommend this tour company- ask for Sarena to be your tour guide. You will not be disappointed .

    Great service .. our guide Salvatore was very informative and patient. Would highly recommend this company and your . Did t feel rushed and got a good idea of the colloseum and the rich history.

    Our Joy of Rome tour was our favorite tour we did in Rome. Serena was our guide and not only was she informative, but kind and accommodating. She was excited to show us the history of her city. We had been traveling for a few weeks with 6 adults and our 6 month old daughter. By the time we got to Rome we were hot, tired and not very excited about spending another day sweating amongst hundreds of tourists trying to see some old rocks. Well… Serena changed our minds about Rome! I felt like I actually learned the history of the coliseum. We could understand her. She made sure we had a break and stayed together. Also, Joy of Rome tours accommodated us last minute and helped us find a tour that worked for us. They were responsive and helpful. Great overall experience!!!!

    Thanks to Francesca, our Colosseum tour was the highlight of our Rome trip. She kept our young boys (6 and 8) engaged and focused. The Colosseum is a huge place and the kids often got distracted but Francesca had no problems getting their attention back. She patiently answered their many questions (including random ones totally unrelated to Rome). She answered many of the adult questions too, satisfying our curiosity. Because of her, we the parents, managed to admire the majesty of the Colosseum. Without her, I'm sure the boys would have gotten bored quickly and the adults, having to keep a constant eye on them amidst the crowd, wouldn't have had such an enjoyable experience. Booking with Joy of Rome tours was easy and fuss free. They answered all questions promptly via email.

    I would highly recommend Joy of Rome. The whole experience from booking the tickets by email to being guided to the meeting point to the tour itself was faultless. I went with my 7-year old daughter who by 15h30, when our tour started, was pretty tired after a whole day of walking. But Alessandra, our guide, had enough spark, passion and interesting facts to keep my daughter interested throughout! Alessandra and her guided tour were pure Joy!!!!
