This was such a great experience! We had the best guide, Elizabeth (an archeologist from Rome). She was extremely informative and her love and passion for what she does made our tour extra special and exciting. Her excitement is contagious and we were extremely happy with our tour. The underground portion was extra special and we highly recommend doing this tour. Hopefully you'll luck out and get the same guide we did!

Our guide Marta was so interesting. She made the tour go so fast we wished for another 3 hours with her. You must ask for her. Completely knowledgable and well worth it!

Small group the ideal way to visit the colosseum, trying to visit with 40 plus is not an option. Louise was our guide and excellent, with comprehensive knowledge of the history of the colosseum. Unfortunately a little rushed due to the authorities pushing the tour groups through as fast as possible, but overall an excellent tour. Thank you Louise, and yes the Irish bar and beer were also well appreciated.
