Excellent tour, would highly recommend it to anyone. Our group was small and our tour guide Scott was friendly, very knowledgable and kept us entertained all day. It was a long day with lots of waking but we got to see so much and learn new facts about the Romans. It was very hot day so make sure you bring a water bottle with you as there are fountains along the way that you can keep refilling them. And Scott made sure we were all keeping hydrated and found lots of shade for us to rest in along the way. I give it 10/10 as I just can’t fault this tour!

Giulio was an excellent guide. Enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, managed the group well, really brought everything to life. I highly recommend this tour. If you're visiting the Colosseum, you might as well go all-out and try to see as much of it as possible because you may never come back. And if you're sure you will come back, that means you probably really enjoy this stuff so you might as well get the best experience available. It's pricy, but it is well worth it.

It was a scorching hot day so all things considered it was a good tour. Our guide was struggling with the heat and was concerned with our well-being. That said I would have liked to spend some free time in the Colosseum as advertised, it didn’t matter so much to us as been before and wanted to see underground mainly but had it been out first time we may have been disappointed.
