Guide was very knowledgeable was very pleasant answered questions very well made sure she was in contact with the group at all times and did not walk too fast ahead of the group.

We met our guide pretty far away from the Colosseum, so I was unsure where or how this was going to play out. It ended up he took us by many spots I had already seen that day, but did not know about. It intrigued me and frustrated me that I did not know this beforehand,because I felt like I wasted a lot of my day. That being said, he taught us so much and shared about the places and brought it more alive. When we got to the Colosseum he handed us over to actual archaeologist to take us on the tour and they were phenomenal bringing this alive and showing us the rich history. I fully recommend this tour and recommend it your very first night there.

Unforgettable tour getting to see the Colosseum at night when it was much quieter and being able to go underground where the Gladiators and animals were kept before entering the arena. Jada gave us some great information about the Roman Forum and helped us with our experience. Highly recommend this tour

Excellent choice to see the Colosseum lit up beautifully at night up close. No crowds and no heat...very enjoyable evening! Very informative guide that kept the interest of our 15 year old son which is no small feat! Would highly recommend!
