I wish I could remember our guides name, she was amazing. I think it might have been Renata, or something similar. It was so very hot and she was so mindful to make sure we always stood in the shade, or if we had to go in the sun that it wasn’t for too long, and she made sure we topped up our water at the water fountains. The tour itself was so informative and insightful. I’ve been to the Colosseum three times before and I learned new things! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, it was perfect, and there were lots of chances to sit and rest for a few minutes which meant we could finish the tour in the heat with relative ease. Thank you so very much for such a wonderful experience.

Our guide was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and provided an amazing tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum! We were able to ask questions and capture some amazing photos - our guide kept a good pace and made sure to keep the whole group included as we walked along. 5 stars!

We explored the Imperial Forums and the Colosseum together with the Guide Diego who cheered us up with historical and funny anecdotes and satisfied all our hearts. All very interesting and exciting, even our 10-year-old girls were fascinated by the stories of the Guide who was able to keep the interest alive for 3 hours. I absolutely recommend it.
