We took the Maximus Tour of the Colisseum & Forum with Dani and also toured the Vatican with Kristiana and were so glad we did! There's just so much to see and learn and our guides were fabulous. It was a real discovery as so much was highlighted and explained and it all fell into place. Soooo interesting.

Kristiana was fantastic. Made the tour so interesting and at times amusing. Go with a guide otherwise you'll wander around for hours and hours. Ear plugs not great but great value for money.

Kristiana was very informative and clear to understand,and able to answer any questions. We were shown a good cross section of art, architecture, and artifacts. Earplugs are poor quality so can be hard to hear what is being said at times.

Dani was fantastic for our Colosseum tour. She added in a lot of additional history and context. And our Vatican tour was filled with insights and we learned a lot. Highly recommend!!

This tour was very good and the guide was excellent. The audio equipment was only fair - earplug type is not as good as the hand held type because their are so many people around that are talking that is difficult to hear some of the guide's comments. Robert

This was the second time I had been on the Maximus tour of the Vatican and both times were memorable and very informative. The guide was very friendly, chatty, had a good knowledge of the artwork and history- all giving a great experience. This company is great value for money, unlike some other tour operators I have seen advertised online.... More

My husband and I booked through this company 2 tours. One Vatican and the other Colossium. We choose this company because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Certainly not disappointed! Very knowledgeable, professional, polite and funny tour operators.
