Absolutely amazing tour. We spent the afternoon with Dennis in the sunshine. I really liked the time of day we spent exploring the coliseum as we got to watch the sun come down towards the end of the day. Dennis was so knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, answering everyone’s questions with vigour and enthusiasm. It was very obvious he has extensive knowledge of Rome and being a ‘Roman from Rome’ made this even more impactful. I think the headsets are a great addition to the tours as you can really hear all of the details and small points made walking all of the way around. Do not hesitate to take this tour if you like to walk and explore many different areas of Ancient Rome.
