    Too much information, well done and layed out nicely but too many facts to try and absorb. We saw everything but in the end less talking and more looking would have been nicer. Please do simpler explanations

    Amazing guided tour of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. Our guide was so thoughtful and we learned so much! The Colosseum did feel a bit rushed due to it being the last tour of the day, but that was understandable.

    Our guide Barbara was very informative. She really knew her stuff. We got to visit all levels of the Colosseum and didnt feel rushed at any time. Highly recommended.

    Amazing experience. Would love to do it all again. Highly recommended.
    Archaeologist is a must for a guided tour.

    This was my 3rd time to visit the Colosseum/Roman Forum/Palatine Hill and I got the chance to experience all of them in ways I never imagined. We had one tour guide for the entire time who was personable and knowledgeable. At the Colosseum the tour was lead by a docent/guide who took us to the Gladiator arena, the underground, and to the third tier. She made sure we knew the stories behind each of the areas and patiently answered all of our questions. I saw parts of the Palatine Hill that I had not seen before and heard lots of interesting facts about life on the Hill. The tour ended after a historical overview of the Roman Forum and ample free time to explore it. I said at the end of the tour this was the best $100 I had ever spent on touring.

    Our guide Alana, was exceptional. The visit to the coliseum was outstanding. Seeing the underground area where the gladiators and animals were kept was fascinating. We saw an historical representation of how the 80 elevators were used to transport the fighters and animals to the arena floor.
    After learning everything we wanted to know about the coliseum, we then climbed to Palatine hill. The emperors palace and grounds were amazingly well preserved for being built 2000 years ago. The view from the top was breathtaking. The Forum below with temples, arches and other structures was amazing.
    There were only eight of us on the tour and Alana was most helpful.

    One of the best tours we did on our trip to Italy. Our guide Maria was beyond informative and kept things very interesting. Highly recommend it. It is worth getting up early to avoid the large crowds that come later.
