Really great tour by Luigi. Highly recommended. We like learning about history and value storytelling and Luigi was fantastic. It wasn’t one of those rushed, superficial tours but a nicely-paced tour that leaves you so much more curious about Roman history.

Valentina was an amazing tour guide who was an expert in all things Rome! The tour felt extra special because it ended up being just my boyfriend and me, and Valentina was really able to bring the history of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome to life through her storytelling. She was very engaging and kind and made us feel like we were just three friends catching up to learn about some really cool, interesting stuff! It was our first tour of our 10 day trip to Italy and was definitely a great first impression that helped set an wonderful tone for the rest of the trip! Would highly recommend you try this experience out if you want to gain a deeper understanding of Roman history while checking out must-see attractions. Tip: wear comfortable shoes and lots of water if you’re visiting during the summer time! You’re going to need it.

Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable, and we learned a lot from her. But with the environment, the mask, and the accent, at times it was challenging to hear and/or understand everything. We hated to miss any details!

We went on this tour with Helena. She was super knowledgeable and shared lots of great information that made the tour very interesting. We debated over booking this tour with a guide or doing a self-guided tour and are glad we went with this! She expertly navigated us and explained everything we were looking at. This tour is a must do if you are visiting Rome for the first time, or if you are wanting to learn more.

Was a very special day for our family learning about the history of the Colosseum and the Forum. Eva was so great that even our three teenagers were engaged during the tour! That may be the ultimate test for a great tour guide:)
