Lovely guide that was very knowledgeable and helped make it a great experience. We would definitely recommend this tour. On the day we went entry was free to everything in Rome so we were given our money back for entry. However, the ques were horrendous as a result so this company placed someone to hold our place so we only had to wait about 20 mins instead of about 2hrs. The commentary on the tour was excellent, including white we were in the que. The lady that was our guide was excellent and also very friendly. Along with giving us information, she also led us to the best places to take amazing photos. Definitely value for money and a wonderful experience

The tour was very good, but it would have been nice to know that everything is free on the first Sunday of the month at the time of booking. Fast pass was not available because of that. The guide did return our ticket portion of the fee, which was appreciated. The guide was very knowledgeable.

very interesting and informative tour. we had enough free time in the colosseum for roaming and pictures. did not really need a guide for the forum. my only criticism is that our tour guide did not have our fast entry tickets in advance, so we all stood in line together in the hot sun for over 30 mins. this had something to do with our tour being on the 1st Sunday of the month (when access to the colleseum is free). the tour guide did fill the waiting time by sharing lots of interesting facts, and apologized several times that we had to wait. without the wait, I would have rated this tour as 5 stars.
