Our guide Marcius is very knowledgable, funny and patient and he really took the time to guide us through ancient Rome history. My family, including my 11-year old, had a very pleasant experience. The tour lasted for over 3 hours and it was very well planned. The only downside was the size of the group: this was claimed a small group tour with less than 20 people, but instead there were at least 26 people. Overall, this was the best tour we had in Italy!

I highly recommend seeing these sites with a higher tourist pro. Guides in Italy have to take test and they really know their stuff. I really enjoyed learning so much about the four of palatine hill and the Colosseum with our guide and definitely make sure you do this Tour

Our guide Andreada was very knowledgeable and personable, providing information and tidbits that truly helped us appreciate the Ancient Roman Sites! Just pay attention to the meeting point as its a bit tucked away, and definitely wear comfortable walking shoes!
