The guide complained if we took a picture while she was standing there explaining, she kept saying it wasn't a photo tour, but when she stopped she forgot that she had the microphone and we kept listening to her talking and making fun of others when she spoke of a girl who had torn pantyhose because it was a “too tight” one. In the description it said skip-the-line entry and we took a queue of more than 15 minutes to enter the coliseum. In general it was pleasant, but there are several points to improve. Even on the Palatine Hill, we couldn't see part of it because the guide didn't time it well.

After this tour you will be fully informed about the ancient Romans. It starts with a half hour visit to the toilet for unprepared participants (tip for you?), but after that it really starts. Guide Paolo is originally an architect, but he also showed enormous geological knowledge: no stone was named less than five times. The Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill are explained in detail, but the Roman times really come to life in the Colosseum.

Wrote to ask to have voucher validated the day before, but when we tried to do that we were told it was unnecessary...unfortunately we lost some time that could have been used otherwise. The tour was supposed to start at 11:15am, but actually it was it takes a bit of patience, but it's understandable when you see the flow of tourists in front of the Colosseum
