Ales was informative and knowledgeable and clearly very passionate about Roman history, and the restoration and preservation of the areas that we visited. It’s a lot of history to cover in 3 hours but he gave us a great overview and also gave everyone in the group plenty of time to stop and take photographs.

We had the best tour guide, his name was Alessandro. He was really knowledgable and thorough. It was a great tour, really informative and interesting. Sadly some of the group members were in a rush to get around the colosseum, probably only interested in the skip the queue benefit to be able to say they had been there. What a shame they missed Alessandro’s expert tour. This tour is not for those in a rush, this tour is an in-depth one, fantastic for anyone with any interest in learning about the history of Rome, the colosseum, the forum and palatine hill. Alessandro kept us all engaged, adults and kids, at all times and answered many questions, nothing was too much for him. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour and would strongly urge anyone planning to book this tour to request a tour with Alessandro. If you are actually interested in spending time hearing about Rome’s history and not just taking selfies, this is the tour for you and he is the best tour guide out there!

It was very easy to find our guide at the designated meeting point and she was lovely. We use Get Your Guide nearly everywhere we travel and this tour did not disappoint. It is wonderful to have such a passionate, inside perspective on a place so historical and she was wonderful interacting with our 2 year old. It was SO crowded on this particular day but our guide made sure that we did not lose a single person in the crowd.
