The tour was good, but we did not visit the Forum - there was not enough time. So the guide poited out the highlights of Forum from a wievpoint at the Palatine height. This was satitisfactory acually, but not what was said in the description of the tour. The guide by the way, was very good, she knew a lot, and spoke all the time...

We enjoyed the tour, our guide was very good and gave us a lot of additional information and showed us pictures to help visualize what these ancient ruins once looked like. It ended up being about 4 hours because our time to get in the colosseum was late. Luckily we didn’t have any other plans it was okay.

English tour with Sarah. It was a lot of fun and it was downright amusing. She skipped unimportant and standard things and instead directed our attention to completely different, very important aspects that we had never heard of before! Would book further tours with her as a guide at any time.
