We had an amazing time. You could tell that our guide, Genie, loved talking about the history of the Roman Empire. The tour was very interactive in the sense that we were all asking questions and she answered with ease. Her knowledge and tips through the trip made this experience one I would definitely do again

Our guide was excellent, unfortunately I can't remember his name other than he was Americian. He was very knowledgeable and made the trip informative and entertaining. He provided lots of opportunities to take photos and I would highly recommend booking this trip.

This activity is 100% recommended! Me and my friends had an absolute blast; with being with a group and touring all three historical features. Great spots throughout the sites that give a stunning view of Rome.
