We had the most perfect experince with our guide David. The meeting point was easy to find. We didn’t feel rushed. Everything was quick and easy from get go. David explained us all the details and history of the colosseum. He gives person attention to everyone in the tour. Also the tour size was not big. Five star experience.

We found the guided tour in English and although our English is not the best, the guide Davide (for Anglo-Saxons David) was very clear! Even if the climate between colleagues on various guided tours is not the most peaceful, the humor of our guide has meant that even those moments were nice. David explained to us in a very comprehensive way the characteristics of the Colosseum and various monuments in the surroundings. His flag of Japan and his jokes about the Roman era have made him even more iconic. Unforgettable experience!

Loved this tour it was well worth the £32 we paid. The directions to the meeting point at the colosseum were spot on and easy to find despite the crowds and it didn’t take long to get inside. Our guide David Setagaya was great and so informative he went into lots of detail of the history of the Roman times the stories were intriguing. The tour of the colosseum itself took around and hour and 15 mins then David took us into the Forum past security to ensure we knew where to go then left us to wander at our leisure around there and Palatine Hill a great tour really enjoyed it
