Very nice tour of the colosseum including the underground part and of the roman forum. Very nice explanation from the guide about the different historical facts of the colosseum while keeping it interesting. We were equipped with radio to properly hear the guide. The forum part is a bit short but we were free to take our time visiting it once the tour was finished with our ticket.

Our guide was wonderful! He knew the history so well and was able to answer all our questions. He was very accommodating to the heat and made sure we were in the shade and had water as much as possible! Worth the money for sure we were able to see everything and learn a lot!

Vasco was a great enthusiastic guide and a great sense of humor! He had a good timing, didn't rush and had time for questions. I really liked the tour, even though I would have loved to wander around the sites on my own after the tour, but the group tickets won't allow for that.
