Our guide (Marco) spoke perfect English at a measured pace. He always made sure that we were with him. No one got lost. He seemed to anticipate questions that we would most likely have as we moved from site to site. He brought Ancient Rome back to life. There were bits of light, relevant humor (to make sure we were paying attention). We were very pleased with our tour and we give our guide a very high rating (5 stars!!!), Blaise and Linda Bisaillon Northampton, Massachusetts, USA

Louisa was very knowledgeable and offered great insight and background on the tour. She was personable and kept our interest the entire time with interesting stories and sense of humor. It was easy to find, and we learned a great deal on the tour. Highly recommend!

It was a good tour with Anita (I think that was her name). It was a large group though and a Sunday in October that was quite warm and very crowded in the Colosseum! I cannot imagine what it is like in the summer months! So the whole time it felt chaotic. But she did her best to get us the best views and also to an area where she could speak to all of us once we had gathered around her. She was very informative and knowledgeable. Thank you for also providing the head phones as it would have been impossible to hear her tour. It is always worth it to have a real guide to explain and then ask guide questions.
