Amazing tour of Ancient Rome with Azzurra
Azzurra was a wonderful tour guide, her knowledge of Rome and its history was first class. Even in the rain she kept us entertained and well informed throughout. She made sure we got the most out of the experience and we would highly recommend you book the tour and ask for her.

This was a brilliant tour. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. We are a family of 4 and our Tour guide - Dennis was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. He was very articulate in his descriptions and stories which made listening very enjoyable. He was also able to keep our children engaged and he was very patient and enthusiastically attending to my daughters never ending questions of the Colosseum. In addition to his explanations, he also provided pictures from a colourful book of how these same areas would have looked back in the day. This visual aid definitely helped imagining it, which was really effective. We really appreciated this as it helps develop our children’s interest in learning about other cultures and history. All in all it was a great day. I would suggest bringing sunscreen and wearing a hot if doing this tour in August.

Amazing tour of colosseum - an absolute must
Feb 2020 • Couples
We took the guided tour of the colosseum, palatine hill and the Roman forum which was outstanding. First of all easy to book in the booking office not far from the colosseum and our tour guide Dennis was brilliant. Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about every step of the tour, super friendly, and very informative. I would highly recommend this tour. The company provides outstanding tour guides, a private entrance into the Colosseum to beat the crowds and a memorable experience overall.

Dennis the tour guide
Jan 2020 • Couples
I was a little sceptical about paying for a tour guide, what can they tell you that a book can’t right?! How wrong i was! Dennis was our tour guide, he had so much more information and gave it with passion! He kept us entertained for almost 3 hours, humour, drama, gory facts and a little bit of good humoured sarcasm. He had us hooked until the moment we had to leave the tour. We loved him, thank you Dennis

Spending the afternoon with Dennis
Dec 2019
Touring Rome in Early December with a knowledgeable tour guide Dennis made the afternoon a time we'll never forget. Dennis, an archeologist by trade, shared his knowledge through words & pictures. His description of The Forum, Colosseum & the culture ancient of Rome left us with a complete understanding of ancient Rome.

Highly recommended: Guide Paolo Penco was excellent
This tour was excellent. Our guide, Pablo Penco was great. He was very personable, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about the Colosseum and Forum. He kept our daughters (aged 8-12) engaged and excited to learn more. Pablo brought a book of historical illustrations to help bring the sights to life. The private tour made a huge difference in the learning experience, which included a VIP entrance avoiding the massive lines outside in hot weather. The Colosseum reached capacity while we were inside, so going without reservations or a guide carried the risk of being shut out.

Excellent tour with great guide - Francesca
Aug 2019 • Family
We toured the Colosseum and Ancient Rome. It was a 3 hour tour. Our tour guide Francesca was very knowledgeable, she had a great personality and did her best to keep us in the shaded area while still thoroughly showing us around. We had an amazing time on the tour! Highly recommend using this agency and specifically Francesca!

Is August a hot month to visit Rome in? Absolutely. Did our tour guide Alice make every stride in the sun worth it? ABSOLUTELY! With Alice you get a knowledgeable and wonderfully funny guide to take you around. We even requested her for our next tour to the Vatican - sadly she was unavailable :(

Electric Enthusiasm!
Had a fantastic tour with Fe that started with the arena entrance to the colosseum and went onto Palentine Hill and the Roman Forum. What a fantastic experience- the knowledge and enthusiasm from Fe was amazing and had us all caught up in the history. Fe answered all the questions we asked and our son has learnt so much in just a few hours- we all have. Definitely recommended!
