Francesca was an amazing tour guide for our family with kids ages 10, 10, 6. She kept them engaged the whole time, explained the historically significant aspects of the tour in ways that kids found exciting--and adults, too. I highly recommend her and the company. A+ bravo!

We were looking for an engaging, informative tour of the Colosseum for our kids (and us!) and Serena was the perfect solution. She brought the experience to life through storytelling that kept both my kids (ages 7 and 3) entranced throughout the 2.5 hours. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything. We also spent a bit of time at The Forum, and it wasn't too much. Would highly recommend this tour!

I would highly recommend Joy of Rome. The whole experience from booking the tickets by email to being guided to the meeting point to the tour itself was faultless.
I went with my 7-year old daughter who by 15h30, when our tour started, was pretty tired after a whole day of walking. But Alessandra, our guide, had enough spark, passion and interesting facts to keep my daughter interested throughout!
Alessandra and her guided tour were pure Joy!!!!

I booked a private tour of the "Colosseum" for my son (7 y.o.) and I. Our guide, Maria Grazia, did a wonderful job engaging with my son and providing us with plenty of interesting information. The tour was really well planned and I would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a fun but educational activity in Rome. Our guide was very knowledgeable, fun, kind and entertaining. We booked out tour directly by contacting by email the organization. They were extremely prompt in replying to any questions we had and the booking process was very smooth. We will book other tours with Joy of Rome when we will visit Rome again.Thank you for the wonderful tour!

Francesca gave an amazing tour to our family of four that was the highlight of our trip. Her knowledge was excellent and her style and approach made it memorable for all in the family. The kids kids learnt new things, had a great time, were totally engaged and were inspired to learn more. Her secret tips on where to get the best gelato were very much appreciated and lived up to the hype. A great way to spend a morning in Rome

We booked the family tour of the colloseum, Illaria was our guide and we were not disappointed. For 3 hours not only were my sons (5 & 8) engaged throughout, it was fun, informative and there were a lot of questions that needed answering (by Illaria) so a lot of patience was required. Even my husband and I walked away knowing so much more! Grazie Illaria for a wonderful, informative afternoon!

I want to recognize the great work Grace and Francesca did with my family during the Colosseum and Vatican experience. They kept the attention of my kids all the time with very interested descriptions about the attractions. Highly recommended both of them if you want your family to learn a lot with amazing tour guides!

We were lucky enough to have Francesca as our guide. Our first full day in rome, we showed up having just walked a mile in 90+ degree heat with my wife and daughter who was understandably a little cranky. Francesca lifted our daughters spirits in no time and from there it was on to a wonderful tour of the colosseum. Francesca connected with our daughter, personalized the tour and most importantly made it fun.

We’ve done a number of tours in Rome during our latest trip and this stands out as easily the best. Definitely do it if you have kids!

Amazing tour hosted by Francesca. Kids thoroughly enjoyed all parts of the Colosseum. Francesca was so engaging with the kids, made it fun and adapted to what they wanted to see and learn about. Super knowledgeable.

We had a truly wonderful tour of the Colosseum with Serena. It was the perfect length, with just the right amount of content and fun for our 7 and 9 year old kids. She was kind, patient and super informative. They also made the entire experience super easy and smooth in terms of process. I HIGHLY recommend booking a tour with Joy of Rome - we will certainly be doing so the next time we are in Rome.
