We were on the English spoken tour on 23/02/2022 we didn’t get the persons name but he was amazing. Please pass on this feedback. He was very informative and knowledgable, and also really friendly. He made us feel really welcome and was such a good tour guide we feel lucky to have had him show us around. We learnt so much about the history of the Colosseum, he kept us thoroughly engaged throughout and was really funny. He gave us memories that we will have for our lifetime and he was just fantastic.

A very smooth and enjoyable experience. We got a taxi to the drop off area and arrived 30 mins before the start. Don’t be late they won’t wait for as one woman found out today as she tried to catch up while we had begun our tour. Pablo our guide was so knowledgeable not only about the coliseum but all Roman history and it was a pleasure to listen to him. Go early, we were there at 9 am and it was still busy but not chaotic.
