Laura at the colosseum
Sep 2021 • Solo
Laura was the best guide you could ask for. She really made history come to life and her enthusiasm is unmatched. I couldn’t have had a better time. I will be back and ask for Laura.

Best tour we had in Italy- with Maya
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was by far the best tour we had during our entire Italy trip. Maya was an amazing tour guide! She was funny and able to explain everything very well, answer any and all questions we had and keep the group moving along.

We had a great tour and learned a lot. Our tour guide was answering all questions patiently and she was caring for the whole group. Definitely recommend this tour. Without this tour we would have missed a lot of information. Our tour guide was Claudia, she spoke German, clear recommendation.

Roberto, the genuine tour guide with great English language skills. He was very informative.
Aug 2021
Roberto was a genuine tour guide and his English was great and really easy to understand for me as a non-native English speaker, too. During our stay in the Colosseum was really rainy therefore he found us a place in order to not get wet and told us stories and stories. It was a great experience. I would definitely recommend him.

Great tour, I learnt so much!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Magda was so, so knowledgeable, and was really engaging. Magda was also very professional and answered every question we threw at her. The tour was long, but wasn’t too tiring as she had us all engaged the whole time. The only suggestion I have for improvement would be to leave a little time to take photos in the Colosseum, as it felt like we didn’t really have the time to stop for many happy snaps. Thanks again!

The tour guide from hell (Simone)
Today’s tour was a disappointment. Twenty minutes into the tour our tour guide Simon had lost my attention with his dry inappropriate jokes, and his fast paced reenactment. I was a by stander and there was a point where he said he was going to call the police on another person on the tour for stealing a radio all because she was trying to keep her sleeping toddler out of the scorching sun! The rest of her party was with him but he made a huge deal that she was leaving the group and that the radio was expensive more than once. He rushed through the coliseum so quick that we were unable to get pictures inside, asked that the kids plug their ears when he wanted to talk vulgar, and at the end of the tour asked at least 5 men to hang back so he could tell them to give him a five star rating. When a couple of other tourist wanted to talk to the family of the person who he threatened to call the police on he was very rude with that family as well as the other tourists. All in all it was a very terrible experience that was meant to be a very memorable one.
