Our guide was excellent, well informed and efficient, got us in and through with no hassle. The small group was great. It gave us a very good picture of what life was like in ancient Rome. It was nice for the privileged, not so nice for the poor and slaves. The sheer size and

We had a fantastic private tour with Mary (Maria). Her historical knowledge of the area was amazing and she made Ancient Rome come alive for us with her explanations of daily life in and around the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. It was an experience we won't forget. Thank you Mary!

The jetlag is a little easier to overcome being surrounded by such beauty, isn't it? Beatrice will be informed of your lovely review, and reading how she has been so enthusiastic and informative makes us proud to have her on board. When returning to our beautiful city feel free to drop us a message and we can see if Beatrice is available to show you some more of Rome's spots not to be missed!

Dear Joshua R, Another praising review for Santi! Amazing to read he has been able to make your day unforgettable and was very informative. In the summer it might indeed be a good suggestion to join the morning tour, as in the afternoons the Italian sun can take the overhand. Unless of course, you'd like to be sure you get a free tan along with your Colosseum visit = ) Luckily there are water fountains located near the sites visited. As for Santi, I will personally make sure he gets to read your kind words! Thank you again for taking the time to share your positive feedback.
