We had a great tour and adults and kids alike learned a lot and had a wonderful time. Our guide was so engaging with the kids- of the 3 tours we took on this trip, this was their favorite and it was because they enjoyed talking with our guide so much. Thank you!

We had a fabulous experience on the tour of Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Our tour guide Chiara was just amazing. She kept our 8 and 11-yr olds engaged throughout. She was very patient and extremely knowledgeable. Our kids had a great time on this tour.

Claudia was fantastic and pitched the level of the tour perfectly, bringing Ancient Rome to life for the whole family and enchanting our 6 and 9 yr old boys with incredible tales of gladiators and emperors. She is a true expert in the field (she collects books about the Colosseum as a hobby) and was able to answer all of our questions in detail. She was also very kind, bringing along little gifts for the children and talking to them about their interests - they loved her and were sad to say goodbye at the end. The 3 hours flew by and we didn’t want the tour to end! We went to Rome specifically for our children to see the Colosseum, so we really wanted to make sure they got the most out of our visit by going for a private tour - so glad we decided to do this as they afterwards said it was the ‘best day ever!’ Our children’s existing interest in Ancient Rome was magnified and, a week later, we are all still talking about the fascinating things things we learned on this tour!
