Absolutely amazing! The tour guide Georgio was brilliant! He really knew his stuff, 3 hours I think is the perfect amount of time. I’m glad I did the tour. It did end up being 10 people instead of 30 but 10 was a much better number. The tours of 30 people around us looked too chaotic and you wouldn’t get the same personal experience as we did. Would definitely recommend doing this

We really enjoy this tour, full packed, very informative, no dull moments, a must so you will appreciate more about the history of how great is the Ancient Rome, colesseum, palatine hill. Our tour guide Halina, is not just a tour guide but felt like our mother who cares for us dearly all the way and really enjoy how she tells us stories about Ancient Rome. She tells us the history in a good way we won’t be overwhelmed with. The tour is on time, easy to find the meeting point. Surely a must to have when you go in Rome.

Alice was very nice and humorous when she was talking about the Forum, the Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. The group was quite big, so it was a bit stressful to keep up with everyone, but overall it was a good experience. This is especially a good solution for people who don't have their tickets to enter the landmarks at the last minute, so I would recommend. It's a bit overpriced, like everything in Rome, and I hope the company pays its guides well.
