We recently took the Colosseum and Forum tour with Federica and had an amazing time. At first I wasn't sure what to think of the headsets that she gave us to hear her better but once we entered the crowded Colosseum I was glad to have it because not only did we not miss any info, but we were able to step away to take a picture and not miss a beat. I can't imagine visiting these locations without a guide. First of all, you are able to skip the line (even the large group tour line) and get right inside. Secondly, there is just so much history that is not apparent that without a guide, you'd miss so much. I was particularly glad we were part of such a small group because it would be easy to get lost or left behind in a large group and difficult to really see the sights. In the Forum, our guide had an interactive virtual reality app that let you visualize what used to be in that space 2000 years before. Since so much of the Forum is in true ruins, it was very helpful to really picture it and definitely helped engage the kids on the tour.

My husband and I booked the 3 hour Vatican Wonders tour. Our tour guide, Eleanora, was amazing. She had a tremendous amount of knowledge about everything we saw. She was very attentive to everyone in the group, making sure we didn't lose track of anyone. Having a semi-private tour like we did is definitely worth the price. Our guide spoke excellent English, was warm and personable. I highly recommend this tour company and will use them again if we return to Rome.

Semi-private three hour tour of Vatican/St. Peter's. Guide spoke excellent English and was very well informed. She (Eleanora) knew a story (seemingly) behind every piece of art she saw. Most importantly, we got to bypass the block long wait in line and did not have to use any potentially less than reputable street sold tour services.

We did two tours with this past June with this group, were very impressed with one, Colosseum but not so impressed with Vatican City tour. The guides were very knowledgeable in both cases. The Vatican City tour had a situation out of the companies control that put a damper on our tour, however we felt the guide did not handle this professionally. Luca our guide for the Colosseum was awesome and I would highly recommend touring with him.

We did a tour of the Vatican our first day with Overome. We had the best guide, Paula. She had an incredible amount of knowledge and was excited to share that with us. We had a small group of 10 for the tour.
We were so happy and surprised that the next day she was our guide again for the Colosseum. Still just as wonderful and there were only 6 of us (all in our family) on the tour.
Thank you Paula and Overome for making our Rome experience wonderful!.
