    Excellent tour - our guide, Marco, was excellent with the kids!

    This was an excellent tour. Perfect for the family and the kids. Marco was great with the kids. My sons were listening to him throughout and found his questions and little snippets of information fascinating. He kept them entertained with games and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Booking was easy. All instructions on where to go were very clear. The agency kept us informed throughout.

    Everything went great (reliable, on time, friendly) and we can recommend this tour. Our son is only seven and we should perhaps have waited another year, since his interest in buildings is of course not yet there (but for the gladiators) ..... but the guided tour was turned into a little guessing and guiding Educational game packed what made the whole thing more interesting (especially the winning prize) .... Everything was good ....
